8. Release; Indemnification.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

YOU SHALL COOPERATE AS FULLY AS REASONABLY REQUIRED IN THE DEFENSE OF ANY CLAIM.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT, AT OUR OWN EXPENSE, TO ASSUME THE EXCLUSIVE DEFENSE AND CONTROL OF ANY MATTER OTHERWISE SUBJECT TO INDEMNIFICATION BY YOU AND YOU SHALL NOT IN ANY EVENT SETTLE ANY MATTER WITHOUT OUR WRITTEN CONSENT.
9. Disputes; Arbitration.
VilladeVanmar’s right to amend these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time as set forth below in Section 12 does not apply to this “Disputes; Arbitration“ section. The version of this “Disputes; Arbitration” section in effect on the date you last accepted the Terms controls.
Any and all Claims will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except you may assert Claims on an individual basis in small claims court if they qualify. This includes any Claims you assert against us, our subsidiaries, users or any companies offering products or services through us (which are beneficiaries of this arbitration agreement). This also includes any Claims that arose before you accepted these Terms, regardless of whether prior versions of the Terms required arbitration.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including statutory damages, attorneys’ fees and costs), and must follow and enforce these Terms as a court would.
Arbitrations will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA Arbitration Consumer Rules (together, the “AAA Rules”). Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, except as provided in this section. If your total Claims seek less than $10,000, we will reimburse you for filing fees you pay to the AAA and will pay arbitrator’s fees. You may choose to have an arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the state where you live or at another mutually agreed upon location.
By agreeing to arbitration under the AAA Rules, the parties agree, among other things, that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive power to rule on any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claims to “VilladeVanmar Legal: Arbitration Claim Manager,” 40525 Yucca Lane, Bermuda Dunes, CA 92203. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you have provided. The AAA's rules and filing instructions are available at or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.
10. Additional Terms and Conditions Applicable to Online Booking.
In addition to being bound by the other terms set forth herein, users who use tools provided by us or a third-party provider on the Site enabling users to book and/or pay for the rental of the property online are also bound by the following terms, which are in addition to any other terms applicable in connection with using the Site. In addition, if such Reservation Services include payment or other services provided by a third-party provider, such services are subject to the additional terms and conditions and privacy policies of such third-party providers.
By utilizing a rental agreement as part of the Reservation Services or otherwise displaying terms relating to the rental as part of the online booking process (including such terms that we may require), users agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the rental agreement or other such terms displayed in the booking process (including without limitation the cancellation refund policy) effective as of the date that the user indicates acceptance of the booking or rental agreement, as applicable. You hereby acknowledge and agree that (i) you are fully responsible for such terms and conditions, (ii) any rental agreement used, whether a sample provided by the Site or a rental agreement copied and pasted in or other online booking tool on the Site, is used solely at their own risk and expense, (iii) nothing contained in these Terms or any sample rental agreement is a substitute for the advice of an attorney and (iv) that you have been hereby advised to obtain local legal counsel to prepare, review and revise as necessary any rental agreements to ensure compliance with federal, state and local law and their particular circumstances, and to revise the rental agreement as necessary to accurately represent the property, rules, features, etc.

These Terms are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), AAA Rules, federal arbitration law, and for U.S. residents, the laws of the state in which you reside (as determined by the billing address you have provided us), without regard to conflict of laws principles.

36. Termination of Listings; Other Remedies.
If, in our sole discretion, any member submits unsuitable material to our Site or into our database, is not abiding by local rental regulations and is creating a nuisance in its community, misuses the Site or our online system or is in material breach of these Terms, we reserve the right to limit the member’s use of the Site, impact the member’s listing(s) search position, and/or terminate such member’s listing immediately without refund. In addition, if we become aware of or receive a complaint or a series of complaints from any user or other third party regarding a member’s listing or rental practices that, in our sole discretion, warrants the immediate removal of such member’s listing from the Site (for example, and without limitation, if a member double-books a property for multiple travelers on the same date, or engages in any practice that, in our sole discretion, would be considered deceptive, unfair or improper within the vacation rental industry or in an online marketplace for vacation rentals, if we determine or suspect that the member’s payment-related practices or procedures are not secure, legal or otherwise proper, or if we receive a complaint that any listing’s content infringes on the rights of a third party), then we may immediately terminate such member’s listing(s) or subscription(s) without notice to the member and without refund. We assume no duty to investigate complaints. Finally, if any member is abusive or offensive to any employee or representative of the VilladeVanmar Group, we reserve the right to terminate such member’s listing(s) or subscription(s) immediately without refund.
In addition to reserving the right to terminate any listing, VilladeVanmar reserves all rights to respond to any violation of the Terms or misuse of the Site by, including, but not limited to, hiding a listing from the search results, marking a member as “out of office,” and removing or changing information that may be false or misleading.
