How the Site, Application, and Services Work

The Site, Application, and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of shared rides in Personal Vehicles for the means of subsidizing and offsetting transportation costs while creating greater efficiency and providing an additional transportation alternative. Such Rides and Rides requests are included as Listings on the Site, Application, and Services by Drivers and Riders respectively. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Site, Application, and Services; however, if you wish to book a Ride or create a Listing, you must first register to create a Boontrek Account (defined below).

As stated above, Boontrek makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Riders and Drivers to meet online and arrange for bookings of Rides. Boontrek is not an owner or operator of Personal Vehicles, including, but not limited to, cars, trucks, light duty trucks, SUVs, vans, minivans, cross-overs, station wagons, or convertibles, nor is it a provider of rental cars, public transportation or Rides and Boontrek does not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control any form of transportation, including, but not limited to Personal Vehicles as set forth in the Key Terms section above. Boontrek's responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Site, Application, and Services and (ii) serving as the limited agent of each Driver for the purpose of accepting payments from Riders on behalf of the Driver.

PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, APPLICATION, AND SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE THE BOOKING OF RIDES. BOONTREK CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY, OR SUITABILITY OF ANY RIDES. BOONTREK IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND RIDES. ACCORDINGLY, ANY BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE AT THE RIDER'S OWN RISK.

Account Registration

In order to access certain features of the Site and Application, and to book a Ride or create a Listing, you must register to create an account ("Boontrek Account") and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or Application or as described in this section.

You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites ("SNS") (including Facebook); each such account, a "Third Party Account", via our Site or Application, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, Application, and Services, you may link your Boontrek Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Boontrek through the Site, Services, or Application; or (ii) allowing Boontrek to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Boontrek and/or grant Boontrek access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Boontrek to pay any fees or making Boontrek subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers. By granting Boontrek access to any Third Party Accounts, you understand that Boontrek will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account ("SNS Content") so that it is available on and through the Site, Services, and Application via your Boontrek Account and Boontrek Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts will be available on and through your Boontrek Account on the Site, Services, and Application. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Boontrek's access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services, and Application. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Boontrek Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. Boontrek makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement and Boontrek is not responsible for any SNS Content.

We will create your Boontrek Account and your Boontrek Account profile page for your use of the Site and Application based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active Boontrek Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. Boontrek reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Boontrek Account and your access to the Site, Application, and Services if you create more than one (1) Boontrek Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current, or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Boontrek Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Boontrek of any unauthorized use of your Boontrek Account.

Ride and Request for Ride Listings

As a Member, you may create Listings. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Ride to be listed, including, but not limited to, the point of destination, the point of origination, timing and date of the Ride, pricing, related rules and financial terms, and whether the year, make, model, and color of the Personal Vehicle the Ride is being offered in is accurate and up to date including the advertised vehicle's, capacity, number of seatbelts, and features. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site, Application, and Services, all Rides must meet the Terms set forth herein. Listings may also be published by Riders requesting Rides from Drivers and will be asked a variety of questions including, but not limited to, the point of destination, the point of origination, the date and time of the requested Ride, the amount of cargo to be transported if applicable, the desired Ride Fee, and any special needs or requirements. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application, and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Ride via the Site, Application, and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Driver or Rider requests to book your Ride, the price for such booking may not be altered.

You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of a Ride from Listing you posted on the Site, Application, and Services (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Ride or request for Ride included in a Listing you post. Please note that Boontrek assumes no responsibility for a Member's compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Boontrek reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Boontrek, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application, or Services.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BOONTREK DOES NOT ACT AS AN INSURER OR AS A CONTRACTING AGENT FOR YOU AS A DRIVER. If a Rider requests a booking of your Ride and rides to the agreed upon points or origin and destination, any agreement you enter into with such Rider is between you and the Rider and Boontrek is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Boontrek serves as the limited authorized agent of the Driver for the purpose of accepting payments from Riders on behalf of the Driver and is responsible for transmitting such payments to the Driver.

When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Ride, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or published phone number, in order to book your Ride. Any Member wishing to book Rides included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.

If you are a Driver, Boontrek makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to book a Ride with. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Driver, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who are otherwise present at the Ride at your request or invitation, excluding the Rider (and the individuals the Rider invites to the Ride, if applicable.)

If you are a Rider, Boontrek makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking of a Ride. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Rider, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who are otherwise present for the Ride at your request or invitations as previously agreed upon by the Driver, excluding the Driver.

BOONTREK REQUIRES THAT ALL DRIVERS MAINTAIN AND SUBMIT PROOF OF SUFFICIENT, LEGALLY MANDATED LEVELS OF AUTO INSURANCE FOR THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLES WHILE OFFERING RIDES ON BOONTREK IN ADDITION TO OBTAINING ANY APPROPRIATE INSURANCE REQUIRED FOR OFFERING RIDES. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Personal Vehicle carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Riders (and the individuals the Rider invites to the Ride, if applicable) as well as cover your actions or inactions as Driver while providing a Ride in your Personal Vehicle.

Criminal Background Checks

As a means of providing greater Ride security during use of the Site, Application, and Services, Members may elect, for a fee, to have Boontrek perform an individual third party criminal background check and, in the event no negative items are identified, display an indication of the lack of such negative results on their Member profile for up to 12 months, at which point the initial check expires and Members must elect to have another check performed to maintain their positive indication. A criminal background check means looking up compiled criminal, arrest, incarceration, and sex offender public records for the requesting Member. BOONTREK MAKES NO WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, OR REPRESENTATIONS ON BEHALF OF ANY MEMBERS INCLUDING THOSE THAT ELECT TO HAVE A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK PERFORMED, AS TO THE THOROUGHNESS OR ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION, NOR DOES BOONTREK MAKE ANY ATTEMPT TO VERIFY THE IDENTITY OF THE MEMBER AND DOES NOT CONFIRM THAT THE MEMBER SUBMITTED INFORMATION IS ACCURATE, but only publishes an indication of having completed the check on the Member's profile if no negative information is found, as an additional resource for other Members to make more informed, educated, safe decisions about who they interact or Ride with while using Boontrek. Boontrek reserves the right to review and evaluate the results of each criminal background check, process and reasonably interpret potentially negative information in a manner that it deems pertinent to its business, relevant to Members, and necessary to aid in the continued safety of its Members, and in its sole discretion, may reject the allocation of a positive or favorable indication for a Member's profile in the event any item that constitutes negative information exists. If negative information is identified, thus not allowing for Boontrek to indicate the favorable or positive result, the Member is to be notified in writing of Boontrek's decision, including the basis for that decision and the resulting negative item or items, and is able to pursue, to the fullest extent, all remedies available and applicable to them under the law in investigating, resolving and, potentially removing the found negative items. If in the future the Member believes the identified negative items to be removed, Members may re-elect to have Boontrek perform another background check for a fee.

No Endorsement

BOONTREK DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY MEMBERS, LISTINGS, OR RIDES. IN ADDITION, ALTHOUGH THESE TERMS REQUIRE MEMBERS TO PROVIDE ACCURATE INFORMATION, WE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONFIRM, AND DO NOT CONFIRM, ANY MEMBER'S PURPORTED IDENTITY INCLUDING THOSE OF MEMBERS WHO HAVE OPTED TO DISPLAY THE FAVORABLE RESULTS FROM A REQUEST FOR BOONTREK TO PERFORM AN INDIVIDUAL CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK TO BE VISIBLE IN THEIR PROFILE. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE IDENTITY AND SUITABILITY OF OTHERS WHO YOU CONTACT AND WHO CONTACT YOU VIA THE SITE, APPLICATION, AND SERVICES.

By using the Site, Application, or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Boontrek with respect to such actions or omissions. ACCORDINGLY, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY WITH OTHER MEMBERS ON THE SITE AND SERVICES REGARDING ANY BOOKINGS OR LISTINGS MADE BY YOU. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Driver against Boontrek regarding the remittance of payments received from a Rider by Boontrek on behalf of a Driver, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".

Bookings and Financial Terms for Drivers

If you are a Driver and a booking is requested for your Ride via the Site, Application, and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by Boontrek in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. When a booking is requested via the Site, Application, and Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Rider who has requested the booking, (ii) a link to the Rider's Boontrek Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Rider on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that the Rider provided to Boontrek when the Rider became a Member matches the name that the Rider provided to the SNSs to which the Rider has linked his or her Boontrek Account, so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the booking. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking of a Ride within such 24 hour period, any amounts collected by Boontrek for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Rider's credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm a booking requested by a Rider, Boontrek will send you an email, text message, or message via the Application confirming such booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application, and Services.

Booking and Financial Terms for Riders

If you are a Rider and a Driver indicates his ability to provide a Ride for your Ride request via the Site, Application, and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by Boontrek at its sole discretion) or the booking request will automatically be cancelled. When a Driver notifies you they are able to meet your Ride request via the Site, Application, and Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Driver who has requested the booking, (ii) a link to the Driver's Boontrek Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Driver on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that the Driver provided to Boontrek when the Driver became a Member matches the name that the Driver provided to the SNSs to which the Driver has linked his or her Boontrek Account, so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the booking. Once the prospective Ride and amounts are mutually agreed upon as a match between the you and the Driver and the booking request is confirmed by Boontrek collecting the agreed upon amount from the your credit card, Boontrek will send you an email, text message, or message via the Application confirming such booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application, and Services.

The fees displayed in each Listing are comprised of the Ride Fees (defined below) and the Rider Fees (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Ride Fees and Rider Fees. The Ride Fees, the Rider Fees, and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Fees." The amounts due and payable by a Rider solely relating to a Driver's or Rider's Ride are the "Ride Fees." Please note that it is the Driver and not Boontrek, which ultimately determine the Ride Fees, however this is done from a Ride Fee recommendation made by Boontrek based on several variables, including, but not limited to, the length of the journey, the types of assumed driving conditions over the proposed route, the fuel efficiency of the Driver's Personal Vehicle, vehicle depreciation, incurred tolls, congestion taxes, and carbon taxes, and the average, or market rate, Member Ride Fee for similar rides.

Boontrek charges a fee to Riders based upon a percentage of applicable Ride Fees, which are the "Rider Fees." The Rider Fees are added to the Ride Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes) displayed in the applicable Listing. Boontrek will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when the Driver confirms the booking within 24 hours of the booking request) and will initiate payment of the Rider Fees (less Boontrek's Driver Fees (defined below)) to the Driver within 24 hours of when the Rider was scheduled to arrive at their destination or when the Rider notifies Boontrek of their safe and satisfactory arrival at their destination, whichever occurs first.

Future Appointment of Boontrek as Payment Agent for Driver

Each Driver hereby appoints Boontrek as the Driver's limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Riders on behalf of the Driver. Each Driver agrees that payment made by a Rider to Boontrek shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Driver and the Driver will make the Ride available to Rider in the agreed upon manner as if the Driver has received the Ride Fees. Each Driver agrees that, Boontrek may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Driver and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Rider to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Rider that portion of the Ride Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Driver, Boontrek assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Driver.

Please note that Boontrek does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that Boontrek reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that Boontrek will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application, and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.

The Drivers, not Boontrek, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Rides reserved through the Site, Application, and Services. If you, as a Rider, choose to enter into a transaction with a Driver for the booking of a Ride, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Driver and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules, and restrictions associated with such Ride imposed by the Driver. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Boontrek, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Boontrek is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Boontrek disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Boontrek is not a party to the agreement between you and the Driver, Boontrek acts as the Driver's payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Driver. Upon your payment of amounts to Boontrek, which are due to the Driver, your payment obligation to the Driver for such amounts is extinguished, and Boontrek is responsible for remitting such amounts, less Boontrek's Driver Fees, to the Driver. In the event that Boontrek does not remit any such amounts to a Driver, such Driver will have recourse only against Boontrek.

Listings for Rides will specify the Total Fees. As noted above, the Driver is required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by Boontrek in its sole discretion) or the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Driver), any amounts collected by Boontrek will be refunded to such Rider, depending on the selections the Rider makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Rider's credit card will be released, if applicable.

You agree to pay Boontrek for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your Boontrek Account if the applicable Driver confirms such requested bookings. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Driver's confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that Boontrek, on behalf of the Driver, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (i.e. one British pound) to verify your credit card. Once Boontrek receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Driver, Boontrek will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that Boontrek cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Rider by his or her bank related to Boontrek's collection of the Total Fees, and Boontrek disclaims all liability in this regard.

In connection with your requested booking, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address, and credit card information either to Boontrek or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay Boontrek for any confirmed bookings made in connection with your Boontrek Account in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Site or Application - e.g. by PayPal or credit card. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the booking, either directly by Boontrek or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site or Application. If you are directed to Boontrek's third party payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party's service and that third party's personal information collection practices. Please review such terms and conditions and privacy policy before using the services. Once your confirmed booking transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed booking.

Future Service Fees

In consideration for providing the Services, Boontrek collects service fees from Drivers and Riders ("Service Fees"). Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (i) Rider Fees and (ii) a fee that is charged to the Driver based upon a percentage of the amount of the Ride Fees ("Driver Fees"). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Driver Fees. Driver Fees are deducted from the Ride Fees before remitting the Ride Fees to the Driver, within 24 hours of when the Rider arrives at the applicable Ride. Rider Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.

Balances will be remitted by Boontrek to Drivers via check, PayPal, direct deposit, or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Driver's currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Driver makes via the Site, Application, and Services. Please note that for any payments by Boontrek in currencies other than U.S. dollars, Boontrek may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.

General Booking and Financial Terms

If, as a Rider, you cancel your requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by a Driver, Boontrek will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Rider, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application, and Services, either prior to or after arriving at the Ride, the cancellation policy of the Driver contained in the applicable Listing will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund the Ride Fees and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Site and Application.

If a Driver cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) Boontrek will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Rider within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Rider will receive an email or other communication from Boontrek containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the Rider requests a booking from one of the alternative Listings and the Driver associated with such alternative Listing confirms the Rider's requested booking, then the Rider agrees to pay Boontrek the Total Fees relating to the confirmed booking for the Ride in the alternative Listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Driver cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Rider, have not received an email or other communication from Boontrek, please contact Boontrek at http://www.boontrek.com/contact.

Foreign Currency

As part of the Services, Boontrek may provide a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings. If you (as a Rider) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees, if your booking is confirmed by a Driver. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by Boontrek based on the payment method you select and the location of the Ride in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Driver to receive payment, Boontrek will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Boontrek has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the "Applicable Exchange Rate"). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Boontrek updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, Boontrek will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your booking is confirmed and the date Boontrek makes payment to a Driver.

User Conduct

Assignment

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Boontrek's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Boontrek may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction.

For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the District of Columbia and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a court located in Washington, District of Columbia or a United States District Court, for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.

Dispute Resolution

You and Boontrek agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Boontrek are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Boontrek otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Boontrek otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Boontrek submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary.

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 having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim.

Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if Boontrek changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to http://www.boontrek.com/contact) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" which will be shown above or in the date of Boontrek's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Boontrek in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

General

The failure of Boontrek to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Boontrek. 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. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
