United States Governing Law and Venue. If you reside or have your place of establishment in the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington 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 18 must be brought in state or federal court in Boston, Massachusetts, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Boston, Massachusetts.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH Constant Companion LLC AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Constant Companion LLC mutually agree that any and all claims or disputes that arise between you and Constant Companion LLC relating to Constant Companion LLC Platform, interactions with others on the Constant Companion LLC Platform, and/or these Terms, including any breach of these Terms, (other than any exceptions discussed herein) will be resolved exclusively on an individual basis through final and binding arbitration, rather than in a court, in accordance with this Arbitration Agreement, and your rights in connection with all Claims will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not by a judge or jury.
Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement: You and Constant Companion LLC each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction:
Any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights Any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances A request for the remedy of public injunctive relief Any individual claim of sexual assault or sexual harassment arising from your use of the Constant Companion LLC Platform or Host Services Any individual claim brought in small claims court Federal Arbitration Act. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To the extent that the Parties’ dispute involves both timely filed Excluded Claims and other Claims subject to this Agreement, the Parties agree to bifurcate and stay for the duration of the arbitration proceedings any such Excluded Claims.
Arbitration Process. The Parties will try in good faith to mutually select and agree upon an arbitrator and rules and procedures to govern the arbitration. If we cannot agree, then the arbitration will be conducted in English by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The rules that apply are those in effect when arbitration is demanded by either of the Parties. The current JAMS Rules are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, and are incorporated in these Terms by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the Rules or waive your opportunity to read the Rules and any claim that the Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason. If there is any inconsistency between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms and applicable law. The arbitrator shall submit a decision in writing, specifying the findings of fact and the conclusions of law on which the decision is based. Decisions by the arbitrator are binding and enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
The arbitration will be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 USD (or equivalent in local currency) or less, you or Constant Companion LLC may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election will be binding on you and Constant Companion LLC subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or Constant Companion LLC, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
Governing Law. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Constant Companion LLC Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Constant Companion LLC User to the extent required by applicable law. As limited by applicable law, these Terms and the applicable JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have (1) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Claim, including the determination of whether a Claim is arbitrable, and (2) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be shared equally by you and Constant Companion LLC, except where prohibited by applicable law. In addition, (1) if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Constant Companion LLC reserves the right to pay your portion of such fees, and (2) if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Constant Companion LLC reserves the right to pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Each party will be solely responsible for all other fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse Constant Companion LLC for all fees associated with the arbitration.
Class Action Waiver. You and Constant Companion LLC acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, you and Constant Companion LLC 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 or consolidated proceeding. Unless you and Constant Companion LLC 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. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
Severability. If any provision of this arbitration agreement and class action waiver is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law and all other provisions will remain valid and enforceable.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
Binding Agreement. Nothing in these Terms will be construed as making either party the partner, joint venturer, agent, legal representative, employer, worker, or employee of the other. Neither party will have, or hold itself out to any third party as having, any authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action, that will be binding on the other, except as provided for herein or authorized in writing by the party to be bound. These Terms are non-exclusive and do not prohibit Hosts from offering services via other means or third parties. The invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any term or provision of these Terms will in no way effect the validity, legality or enforceability of any other term or provision of these Terms. In the event a term or provision is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and these Terms will be enforceable as so modified. To the maximum extent possible under applicable local law, this Agreement will be binding on and will inure to the benefit of the legal representatives, successors and assigns of the parties hereto.
Severability. If any term, clause, or provision is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions will remain valid and enforceable.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL RISKS, BOTH KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, OF USING A SPOT, EVEN IF THOSE RISKS ARISE FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OR CARELESSNESS OF THE HOST OR OTHERS, OR DEFECTS IN THE EQUIPMENT, PREMISES, OR FACILITIES AT THE SPOT, OR OTHERWISE, AND YOU ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR USE OF THE SPOT.
You acknowledge and agree that:
You have reasonably assessed the risks involved in using a spot and have made an informed and voluntary choice to participate.
You alone, and not your Host(s), are responsible for determining your fitness and your pet’s fitness for using a spot and your ability to fully understand any directions or warnings presented.
You will not use any spot when you are aware or should reasonably be aware of any factors that may limit or prevent you from safely using that spot.
You will act reasonably and responsibly and will comply with any provided and customary conditions, directions, and/or precautions for using a spot. If you notice any hazard at a spot, you will stop using the spot immediately.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU RELEASE AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE YOUR HOST(S) FOR ANY CLAIMS, DEMANDS, CAUSES OF ACTION, LOSSES (WHETHER ECONOMIC OR NON-ECONOMIC), DAMAGES, EXPENSES, COSTS OR LIABILITY OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF A SPOT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
If you reside in California, you expressly waive the protection of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code (“Section 1542”), which provides: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS/HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM/HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS/HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR. You understand and agree that claims or facts in addition to or different from those which are now known or believed by you to exist may hereafter be discovered.
You intend this Release and Waiver to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law. You agree that if any portion of this Waiver and Release is held to be invalid, the balance notwithstanding shall continue in full force and effect.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, HOSTS PROVIDE A SPOT “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, HOST(S) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF SAFETY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND AS TO THE ADEQUACY OF THE DIRECTIONS AND WARNINGS PROVIDED TO YOU.
You agree that if, despite this Release and Waiver, you or anyone on your behalf make a claim against the Host(s) relating to an Experience and/or Trip, you will indemnify and hold the Host(s) harmless from any liability, demand, loss, damage, or costs which the Host(s) may incur as the result of such claim.
You affirm that you HAVE READ THIS GUEST RELEASE AND WAIVER AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, WAIVER, AND CONSENT CONTAINED IN IT. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN UP RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, AND HAVE DONE SO FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY AND WITHOUT INDUCEMENT.
Related services and offerings of merchants, vendors, and other third parties, including our pet care provider clients, may utilize TTP’s platform or client portal in serving their end-users, including you. For instance, TTP utilizes third-party services such as Google Analytics to help us improve our site and end-user experience. Such third parties have their own privacy policies and statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each party’s respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in or engage TTP’s platform or client portal are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants, vendors and other third parties before you provide us any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties directly.
As further set forth below, we collect certain information from and about our users and visitors to TTP both explicitly, based on responses and data provided directly by you, and implicitly, based on Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and device information that is transmitted as you use TTP. We and our customers use and share this information as may be necessary from time to time to fulfill operational obligations and processes, such as collecting contact and payment information to schedule and process payments. Please also be aware that users and visitors of TTP, including our pet care provider clients, may collect information beyond the scope of the information we collect as they may customize and determine necessary to their particular business operations and needs. We never use this information for third-party marketing purposes. We collect information in four ways: from our web server logs, cookies, you, and our mobile application.
a. Web Server Logs
TTP pages may use scripts, electronic images known as “web beacons” (sometimes also called single-pixel gifs) or other technologies to count users who have visited our pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include scripts or web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Some of these technologies may be placed by third-party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These technologies may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. We prohibit web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant – firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have not implemented any technology that would effectively recognize and not track signals and note that some content available on TTP is made available through relationships with third-party providers who we do not control and who may collect and/or disclose personally identifiable information. 7. HOW TO CORRECT OR UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION To update this information made available to us, please contact us at the information listed at the end of this article.
We use commercially reasonable procedures to protect the personal information that we collect from you against loss, theft and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We have developed and implemented and continue to maintain and monitor a written information security program applicable to all records containing personal information. This security program is appropriate to the size, scope and type of our business, the resources available to us, the amount of stored data and the need for security and confidentiality of the personal information we store. No security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the security during transmission to us of the information you supply over the Internet. You can help us by taking precautions to protect your personal information when you are on the Internet and only disclose information that you want made public. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers and make sure to use a secure web browser. For the purposes set out in this Policy, personal information may be transferred to, processed, stored and accessed by us, our affiliates and third parties in the United States and in other jurisdictions where we or they operate. Courts and other authorities in these jurisdictions may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access your personal information. By using TTP, you consent to this transfer, processing, storage and access of your personal information in and/or outside of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
We may share and publicize aggregate and/or de-identified information shared with third parties and the public.
We care about protecting the privacy of children. We do not and will not specifically market to or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 for marketing purposes. Because some information is collected online, it may not appear to be the personally identifiable information of a child under 13. If a child under 13 submits personally identifiable information to us and we learn that the personally identifiable information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the personally identifiable information as soon as possible. If you are under 13, please do not register for any of our services or provide us any information about yourself (such as your name, email address or phone number).
As required by the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“California Act”) and the California Business and Professions Code, this Policy identifies the categories of personally identifiable information that we collect through TTP about individual consumers who use or visit TTP and the categories of third-party persons or entities with whom such personally identifiable information may be shared. Depending on the visitor’s activity at TTP, certain personally identifiable information (as that term is defined in the California Act) may be collected, in addition to information set forth in other sections of this document. For purposes of the California Act, the term “personally identifiable information” means individually identifiable information about an individual consumer collected online by us from an individual and maintained by us in an accessible form, and may include any of the following: (1) a first and last name; (2) a home or other physical address, including street name and name of a city or town; (3) an email address; (4) a telephone number; (5) a social security number; (6) any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual; and (7) information concerning a user that TTP collects online from the use, and maintains in personally identifiable form, in combination with an identifier described within this Policy. See more about the California Act at https://consumercal.org/about-cfc/cfc-education-foundation/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa-3/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf.
We have the discretion to amend this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the bottom of this Policy. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TTP and our services constitutes your ongoing agreement to this Policy and any updates.
This Policy is executed in English. You agree and acknowledge that you have reviewed this Policy in English. To the extent that any translations of this Policy are provided, they are solely for convenience and are of no binding effect. The English language version of this Policy shall control.
