Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Customers on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Service Provider against HookandBullet regarding the remittance of payments received from a Customer by HookandBullet on behalf of a Service Provider, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.

Bookings and Financial Terms

Bookings and Financial Terms for Service Providers

If you are a Service Provider and a booking is completed for your Service via the Site, Application and Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Customer who has requested the booking, (ii) the trip dates for the booking, (iii) the particular service booked, (iv) the number of people in the party, and (v) the dollar amount of the booking in United States Dollars so that you can view such information. HookandBullet will send you an email, post it to the Dashboard section of the site for you to access once logged-in, and will text message 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 Service Fees, States Taxes if applicable, less any Discounts you have elected to offer, and the revenue-share percentage due to HookandBullet. Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Service Fees and Customer Fees. The Service Fees, the Customer Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”. The amounts due and payable by a Customer solely relating to a Service Provider’s Service are the “Service Fees”. Please note that it is the Service Provider and not HookandBullet which determines the Service Fees.

HookandBullet charges a fee to Service Providers based upon a percentage of applicable Service Fees. HookandBullet will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking completion and will initiate payment of the Service Fees (less HookandBullet’s Service Provider Fees (defined below)) to the Service Provider at the end of the calendar month during which the service was provided to the customer (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Customer). HookandBullet will hold the first payment made to a Service Provider until (i) 7 days have passed after the first trip or service has been provided to a customer, and (ii) the service provider has provided their EIN information or social security number as required by law. No payments can be issued until service has been provided at least once, and the required tax information has been collected.

Appointment of HookandBullet as Payment Agent for Service Provider

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

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

Bookings and Financial Terms for Customers

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

Listings for Services will specify the Total Fees.

You agree to pay HookandBullet for the Total Fees for any booking completed in connection with your HookandBullet Account. In order to establish a booking, you understand and agree that HookandBullet, on behalf of the Service Provider, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) charge your credit card for the Total Fees, or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting ( e.g. one euro or one British pound). Please note that HookandBullet cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Customer by his or her bank related to HookandBullet’s collection of the Total Fees, and HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay HookandBullet for any bookings made in connection with your HookandBullet 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 the booking process, either directly by HookandBullet or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site or Application. Once your booking transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed booking.

Service Fees

In consideration for providing the Services, HookandBullet collects service fees from Service Providers (“Service Fees”). Service Fees are based upon a percentage of the total amount of the Service Fees (“Service Provider Fees”) less applicable sales tax. Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Service Provider Fees. Service Provider Fees are deducted from the Service Fees before remitting the Service Fees to the Service Provider, within 30 days of the booking.

General Booking and Financial Terms

Cancellations and Refunds

If, as a Customer, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application and Services, either prior to or after arriving at the Service, the HookandBullet cancellation policy will be enforced as (i) for bookings cancelled more than 90 days in advance of the trip start date, a 15% cancellation penalty will apply, (ii) for bookings cancelled 90 days or less in advance but more than 60 days in advance of the trip start date, a 25% cancellation penalty will be applied, (iii) for bookings cancelled 60 days or less in advance but more than 7 days in advance of the trip start date, a 50% cancellation penalty will be applied, and (iv) for bookings cancelled 7 days or less in advance of the trip start date, a 100% cancellation penalty will be applied.

If a Service Provider cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) HookandBullet will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Customer within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Customer will receive an email or other communication from HookandBullet containing alternative Listings and other related information.

Taxes

IRS regulation, regarding federal tax reporting requirements, stipulates that HookandBullet must collect IRS forms from all service providers in the United States. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. HookandBullet cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Site, Application and Services. Additionally, please note that each Service Provider is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Service Provider, HookandBullet may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Service Provider.

Foreign Currency

HookandBullet displays all fees for services in United States dollars, and will not provide a currency conversion tool of any kind. Please note that HookandBullet cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Customer by his or her bank related to HookandBullet’s collection of the Total Fees, and HookandBullet disclaims all liability in this regard.

Damage to Service Provider Property

As a Customer, you are responsible for leaving the property of Service providers in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Customer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Service. In the event that a Service Provider claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to, photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given forty eight (48) hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card on file in your HookandBullet Account. HookandBullet also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in your HookandBullet Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to HookandBullet in this regard, in situations in which you have been determined, in HookandBullet’s sole discretion, to have damaged any Service, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Service Providers under the HookandBullet Service Provider Guarantee, and in relation to any payments made by HookandBullet to Service Providers. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Service to the applicable Service Provider or to HookandBullet (if applicable).

Both Customers and Service Providers agree to cooperate with and assist HookandBullet in good faith, and to provide HookandBullet with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by HookandBullet, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Services or any personal or other property located at an Service (including, without limitation, payment requests made under the HookandBullet Service Provider Guarantee) or with respect to any investigation undertaken by HookandBullet or a representative of HookandBullet regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a Customer, upon HookandBullet’s reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Service Provider, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by HookandBullet or a third party selected by HookandBullet, with respect to losses for which the Service Provider is requesting payment from HookandBullet under the HookandBullet Service Provider Guarantee.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon 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 state court located in Deschutes County, Bend, Oregon or a United States District Court, located in Eugene, Oregon 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 HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet 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 Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at http://www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004314.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. 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. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. HookandBullet will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.

Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, HookandBullet will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if HookandBullet 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 support@hookandbullet.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of HookandBullet’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 HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet 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 HookandBullet. 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.
