5. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
5.1 This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if your (i) country of residence or establishment is in the United States; or (ii) your country of residence or establishment is not in the United States, but bring any claim against Palazzo Beverly Hills in the United States.
5.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Palazzo Beverly Hills is committed to participating in alternative dispute resolution ("ADR"). To that end, these Terms provide for a three-part process for individuals and corporations to whom Section 5 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Palazzo Beverly Hills, and (2) mediation before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and (3) binding arbitration administered by the AAA using its specially designed Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures. Specifically, the Commercial Arbitration Rules provide:
Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org);
Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party.
6. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Mediation
6.1 Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Palazzo Beverly Hills each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
6.2 If a dispute arises from or relates to this website, its use, reliance, or breach thereof, and if the dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions, the parties agree to endeavor first to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures before resorting to arbitration.
7. Agreement to Arbitrate.
7.1 You and Palazzo Beverly Hills mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the Palazzo Beverly Hills website or the Collective Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Palazzo Beverly Hills agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this website, any advertisement related to the Palazzo Beverly Hills, including any claims of breach of contract, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
8. Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement.
8.1 You and Palazzo Beverly Hills each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack, defamation).
9. Arbitration Rules and Governing Law.
9.1 This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
10. Modification to AAA Rules - Arbitration Hearing/Location. The location of the arbitration shall be conducted (i) in Los Angeles, California (ii) via phone or video conference; or (iii) for any claim or counterclaim under $15,000, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
11. Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
12. Right of Appeal. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary, the parties hereby agree: that the Underlying Award may be appealed pursuant to the AAA's Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules ("Appellate Rules"); that the Underlying Award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall, at a minimum, be a reasoned award; and that the Underlying Award shall not be considered final until after the time for filing the notice of appeal pursuant to the Appellate Rules has expired. Appeals must be initiated within thirty (30) days of receipt of an Underlying Award, as defined by Rule A-3 of the Appellate Rules, by filing a Notice of Appeal with any AAA office. Following the appeal process the decision rendered by the appeal tribunal may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
13. Jury Trial Waiver. You and Palazzo Beverly Hills acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
14. No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Palazzo Beverly Hills acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and Palazzo Beverly Hills both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
15. Severability. In the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
16. Survival. This section will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Airbnb Platform or terminate your Airbnb Account.
17. Feedback. We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements (“Feedback“). You may submit Feedback by emailing us, or through the “Contact” section of the Palazzo
Beverly Hills website, or by other means of communication. Any Feedback you submit to us will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. By submitting Feedback to us, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
18. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
18.1 If your country of residence or establishment is the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 8 must be brought in state or federal court in Los Angeles, California, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California.
19.1 Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, these Terms constitute the entire Agreement between Palazzo Beverly Hills and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Palazzo Beverly Hills and you in relation to the access to and use of the Palazzo Beverly Hills website.
19.2 No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Palazzo Beverly Hills as a result of this Agreement or your use of this website.
19.3 These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.

19.5 Palazzo Beverly Hills's failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
