Welcome to Nesterly
Acceptance of These Terms
Nesterly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify these Terms, and any other documents incorporated by reference herein, at any time and without prior notice. If we do, we will notify you of changes by posting them on the Terms pages on the Nesterly Platform, by sending you a message through the Nesterly Platform or by SMS, or otherwise notifying you. Amendments will become effective not earlier than thirty (30) days after they are posted on the Nesterly Platform or when you are logged into your account or are otherwise notified. Your use of the Nesterly Platform after the expiration of the thirty (30) day notice period shall constitute your consent to the changes. If you do not agree to these Terms, including as amended from time-to-time, we will be sad to see you go, but your only recourse is to stop using the Nesterly Platform or Services.
ELIGIBILITY AND USE OF THE NESTERLY PLATFORM
Access to and use of the Nesterly Platform is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old and who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. By accessing or using the Nesterly Platform, you represent and warrant that you are eligible and have the capacity to enter into contracts.
Except where otherwise agreed to in writing, you acknowledge and agree that Nesterly is not in the business of providing homesharing services. THE NESTERLY PLATFORM IS AN ONLINE PLATFORM THROUGH WHICH HOSTS MAY CREATE LISTINGS FOR HOMESHARING, AND GUESTS MAY LEARN ABOUT AND BOOK HOMESHARING DIRECTLY WITH HOSTS. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NESTERLY IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENTS ENTERED INTO BETWEEN HOSTS AND GUESTS, NOR IS NESTERLY A PROVIDER, A REAL ESTATE BROKER, AGENT OR INSURER. NESTERLY HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE CONDUCT OF HOSTS, GUESTS, AND OTHER USERS OF THE NESTERLY PLATFORM OR ANY ACCOMMODATIONS, AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY IN THIS REGARD TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NESTERLY DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY MEMBER, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, INCLUDING THROUGH ANY MATCHING SERVICES, AND EACH NESTERLY USER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR UNDERTAKING WHATEVER INVESTIGATION DEEMED APPROPRIATE WITH REGARD TO ANY INTERACTIONS OR AGREEMENTS BETWEEN USERS. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTIONS BELOW.
Users of the Nesterly Platform, including Hosts and Guests, understand and agree that they are users of Nesterly, and are not Nesterly employees, joint venturers, partners, or agents. Hosts acknowledge that they set or confirm their own prices, provide their homesharing accommodations according to their own schedule and homesharing rules, and determine other material terms under which accommodations may be offered to Guests for longer than one month. Users of the Nesterly Platform acknowledge and agree that Nesterly does not control, and has no right to control, Hosts or Guests or homesharing accommodations.
Nesterly does not currently conduct identity verification and background investigations (including criminal background) on all its members and does not attempt to verify the statements made by Hosts or Guests in their profiles or other online communications. Nesterly reserves the right, but not the obligation, as permitted by applicable laws, to obtain reports based on publicly available information, from authorized third party vendors, which may include history of criminal convictions or sex offender registry registration, and may (in its sole discretion) limit, block, suspend, deactivate, or cancel a Host or Guest's account based on the results of such a check. As a Guest or Host, you expressly acknowledge and agree and authorize us to use your personal information, such as your full name and date of birth, to obtain such reports from Nesterly’s vendors should it determine to perform such verifications or checks of publicly available information.
ACCOUNT REGISTRATION AND OTHER SUBMISSIONS
Users may access parts of the Nesterly Platform without registering for an account. To access and participate in certain functionalities of the Nesterly Platform, including without limitation to participate as a Nesterly Host or Guest, users must create a password-protected account (a "Nesterly Account"). Users may register for a Nesterly Account by using an email address and creating a secure password, or through certain third party social networking sites, by using existing login credentials and passwords for services such as Facebook or Google (your "TNS Password"). You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process and at all other times when you use the Nesterly Platform. You also agree to update your information at all times to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Nesterly password and, if applicable, your TNS Password. You are also solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your Nesterly Account, and you agree to notify Nesterly immediately of any suspected unauthorized use. To the maximum extent allowed by law, Nesterly is not liable for any losses by any party caused by unauthorized use of your Nesterly Account. Users with valid Nesterly Accounts, including without limitation Hosts and Guests, may be referred to in these Terms as "Members." Nesterly Members agree that they may register for only one account at any point in time, acknowledge and agree that Nesterly Accounts may not be transferred to any other person or entity, and that all rights to their Nesterly Account (including content within the Nesterly Account) terminate upon death. Upon receipt of a certified copy of a death certificate, your Nesterly Account may be terminated and its contents permanently deleted.
MESSAGING, SMS OR TEXT MESSAGES
By creating a Nesterly Account, and becoming a Member, you agree that Nesterly may send you text (SMS) messages and/or email messages as part of the normal business operation and your use of the Nesterly Platform. Such uses include without limitation, to provide you with information you requested from Nesterly or its Members, to let you know about features, functions, improvements or changes to the Nesterly Platform, to facilitate your identification of Members who may be interested in homesharing or other aspects of your Nesterly Account. These text (SMS) messages and/or email addresses may be automated or non-automated, and while Nesterly does not charge you to send or receive such messages, other message and data rates may still apply by your carrier or other provider. You may opt-out of receiving text (SMS) messages and/or email messages from Nesterly at any time by contacting our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. You acknowledge, however, that opting out of receiving text (SMS) and/or email messages may impact your use of and ability to fully use the Nesterly Platform.

TERMS APPLICABLE TO HOSTS
When creating a listing through the Nesterly platform, you must (i) provide complete and accurate information about your service (such as listing description, location, and calendar availability), (ii) disclose any deficiencies, restrictions (such as house rules), and other requirements that apply (such as any minimum age), and (iii) provide any other pertinent information requested by Nesterly. You are responsible for keeping your listing information (including calendar availability) up-to-date at all times.
You are solely responsible for setting a price (including any taxes if applicable) for your listing (“Listing Fee”). Once a Member requests a booking of your listing, you may not request that the Member pay a higher price than in the final booking.
Pictures, animations, or videos (collectively, "Images") used in your listings must accurately reflect the quality and condition of your accommodation. Nesterly reserves the right to require that listings have a minimum number of Images of a certain format, size, and resolution. Nesterly may offer Hosts the option of having professional photographers take photographs of their accommodation, which are made available by the photographer to Hosts to include in their listings with or without a watermark or tag bearing the words "Nesterly Verified Photo" or similar wording ("Verified Images"). You are responsible for ensuring that your accommodation is accurately represented in the Verified Images and you will stop using the Verified Images on or through Nesterly if they no longer accurately represent your listing, if you stop hosting, or if your Nesterly Account is terminated or suspended for any reason. You acknowledge and agree that Nesterly shall have the right to use any Verified Images in advertising, marketing, and/or any other business purposes in any media or on the Nesterly Platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation to you. Where Nesterly is not the exclusive owner of Verified Images, by using such Verified Images on or through Nesterly, you grant to Nesterly an exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual (or for the term of the protection), sub-licensable, and transferable license to use such Verified Images for advertising, marketing, and/or any other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation to you. Nesterly in turn grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to use Verified Images outside of the Nesterly platform solely for your personal and non-commercial use.
Nesterly recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their services. Please review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular 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 Members while staying at your accommodation.
If you choose to require a security deposit for your accommodation, you must specify this in your listing ("Security Deposit"). Hosts are not allowed to ask for a Security Deposit after a booking has been confirmed or outside of the Nesterly Platform. Nesterly will use commercially reasonable efforts to address Hosts’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but Nesterly is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Hosts related to Security Deposits.
You represent and warrant that any listing you post and the booking of, or a Member’s stay at, an accommodation will (i) not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowners association, condominium, or other agreements, (ii) comply with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws), tax requirements, and other rules and regulations (including having all required permits, licenses, and registrations), and (iii) is your residence for more than one hundred and ninety (190) days in a calendar year. As a Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the accommodation at your request or invitation, excluding the Member.
Disintermediation. By joining the Nesterly community, you agree to comply with all processes and pricing structures and to not engage in any form of disintermediation with any Member or Guest. You will not make any attempt to identify a Guest or Member with the goal of directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, or influencing them through other channels to complete a homesharing transaction without further use of the Nesterly Platform.
Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Hosts can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Rating”) about Guests. Any Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinion of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of Nesterly. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by Nesterly for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading. Ratings and Reviews by Hosts must be fair, truthful, and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language.
Lack of Discrimination. No Member shall discriminate against another Member on the basis of race, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, age or sexual orientation, or otherwise.
TERMS APPLICABLE TO GUESTS
Nesterly recommends that Guests using Hosts’ services should obtain appropriate insurance for their services. Please review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy.
Each booking made by a Guest must be at least for thirty (30) consecutive days.
Disintermediation. By joining the Nesterly community, you agree to comply with all processes and pricing structures and to not engage in any form of disintermediation with any Member or Host. You will not make any attempt to identify a Host or Member on the website with the goal of directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, or influencing them through other channels to complete a homesharing transaction without further use of the Nesterly Platform.
Furthermore, you agree to confirm any homesharing match and pay through the Nesterly Platform even after you have been placed in touch and exchanged contact information through the messaging interface or any other area of the Website. Any violations of this will be immediately investigated and may result in, including, but not limited to, deactivation of the involved account(s). Nesterly reserves the right to ban those found guilty of disintermediation from any future use of the platform or service.
Term extension or early termination
The rent price and terms can change at any time if both parties agree to those changes. If the Homesharing Agreement is changed or altered it must be updated through the site and addition al fees may apply in the event of an extension of the match. Similarly Nesterly must be notified if there is an early termination of the homesharing arrangement.
Lack of Discrimination. No Member shall discriminate against another Member on the basis of race, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, age or sexual orientation, or otherwise.
Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Guests can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Rating”) about Hosts. Any Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinion of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of Nesterly. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by Nesterly for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading. Ratings and Reviews by Guests must be fair, truthful, and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language.
INTERACTION WITH AND DISPUTES BETWEEN USERS
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER MEMBERS. NESTERLY CURRENTLY DOES NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ALL ITS MEMBERS. THE COMPANY DOES NOT MAKE ANY ATTEMPT TO VERIFY THE STATEMENTS MADE BY MEMBERS IN THEIR PROFILES OR COMMUNICATIONS WITH OTHER MEMBERS, AND NESTERLY DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY MEMBER OR USER. THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE CONDUCT OF MEMBERS OR USERS OR THEIR COMPATIBILITY AS ROOMMATES OR HOMESHARES. ALTHOUGH THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS OR OTHER SCREENINGS (SUCH AS SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY SEARCHES) AT ANY TIME AND AT THE COMPANY’S SOLE DISCRETION, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT A SPECIFIC MEMBER HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF SUCH BACKGROUND CHECK OR SCREENING. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO CONDUCT YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE REGARDING YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER MEMBERS AND USERS.
You are solely responsible for the outcomes of your actions in connection with the Nesterly Platform, including without limitation any decision to: communicate with Members using either the Nesterly Platform or Services, or any means other than the Nesterly Platform or Services; arrange or agree to meet another Member or group of Members in person; send money to another Member; or communicate, or cause to be communicated, personal information about yourself to another Member or group of Members. You understand that the Company makes no guarantees, either express or implied, regarding your ultimate compatibility with individuals you meet through the Service. You should not provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account information), or wire or otherwise send money directly to other Members other than funds exchanged through the Website.
Members have a variety of mechanisms available to report misconduct or concerns about the activities of other Members. Upon receipt of community feedback regarding particular Members, the Company may take actions to verify and investigate the feedback and the Member or Members involved. Any response to such feedback is at the sole discretion of the Company.
Nesterly values our Members, and we understand that occasionally disputes may arise between or among them. Our goal is to provide tools to help users resolve such disputes independently. In the rare event a dispute initiated by a Host, Guest, or User occurs which cannot be resolved independently, you agree, at Nesterly's request, to participate in good faith, to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, in a neutral resolution, mediation, or arbitration process conducted by Nesterly or a neutral third-party mediator or arbitrator selected by Nesterly. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that Nesterly is under no obligation to become involved in or impose resolution in any dispute between or among users or any third party.
As a Member, you are responsible for leaving the accommodation (including any personal or other property located at the accommodation) in the condition it was in when you arrived. You are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the accommodation, excluding the Host (and the individuals the Host invites to the accommodation, if applicable).
If a Host claims and provides evidence that you as a Member have damaged an accommodation or any personal or other property at an accommodation ("Damage Claim"), the Host can seek payment from you through Nesterly. If a Host escalates a Damage Claim to Nesterly, you will be given an opportunity to respond. If you agree to pay the Host, or Nesterly determines in its sole discretion that you are responsible for the Damage Claim, Nesterly will collect any such sums from you and/or against the Security Deposit (if applicable) required to cover the Damage Claim. Nesterly also reserves the right to otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any remedies available to Nesterly in this regard in situations in which you are responsible for a Damage Claim, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Hosts.
If you are a Member you understand and agree that Nesterly may make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's, or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused, or been responsible for, to an accommodation or any personal or other property located at an accommodation. You agree to cooperate with and assist Nesterly in good faith, and to provide Nesterly with such information as may be reasonably requested by Nesterly, to make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's, or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as Nesterly may reasonably request to assist Nesterly in accomplishing the foregoing.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Nesterly has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any listings or Host services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, ratings, reviews, or other Member postings, or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party.
The Company provides assistance and guidance through its customer care representatives. When communicating with our customer care representatives (whether over the telephone, or via email or letter), you may not be abusive, obscene, profane, offensive, sexist, threatening, harassing, racially offensive, or otherwise behave inappropriately. If we feel that your behavior towards any of our customer care representatives or other employees is at any time objectionable, we reserve the right to immediately terminate your Nesterly Account and you will not be entitled to any refund of unused subscription fees. To the maximum extent allowed by law, you acknowledge, agree, and consent to the recording of telephone calls between you and customer care representatives for quality assurance and training purposes. You also acknowledge and agree that from time-to-time Nesterly may create "test" profiles for the purpose of testing the functionality of the system or in the offering of new or different features or functionalities or in consideration of modifications to the Nesterly Platform or Services.
NESTERLY FEES AND TAXES
Nesterly may charge fees to Hosts and/or Guests (“Service Fees”) in consideration for the use of the Nesterly Platform. Any applicable Service Fees (including any applicable taxes) will be displayed to a Host or Guest prior to booking a listing. Nesterly reserves the right to change the Service Fees at any time, and we will provide Members reasonable notice of any changes to Service Fees prior to them becoming effective.
Nesterly may also charge penalty fees for fraud, misconduct, or other violations of these Terms, as determined in our sole discretion. You agree to pay these Listings Fees, Services Fees, Penalty Fees, and all other charges (referred to as "Total Fees"). Information about current Total Fees are available on our FAQ and Support Pages. You agree to pay all Total Fees or charges based on the fee and billing terms then in effect, regardless of whether you have an active Nesterly Account. Charges shall be made to your credit card, PayPal, or other payment method designated by you. If you do not pay on time or if Nesterly cannot charge a payment method for any reason, Nesterly reserves all rights permissible under law to recover payment and all costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys' fees, in pursuit of payment.
If you cancel your Nesterly Account at any time, you will not receive any refund. If you have a balance due on any Nesterly Account, you agree that Nesterly may charge such unpaid fees to your payment method or otherwise bill you.
Payments-Related Representations and Warranties
As set forth above, except where otherwise specifically agreed to in writing, Nesterly is not a provider of accommodations and does not offer such accommodations and is not a provider, broker, agent, or insurer. Hosts and Guests enter into a contract directly with each other, and even though Nesterly may act as a limited payment collection agent as defined below, it is not a party to any agreement discussed or entered into between Members.
Nesterly may restrict the availability of payment services, or any aspect or feature of payment services, to perform maintenance of systems to help ensure the proper functioning of the system or to improve, enhance, modify, suspend, or terminate any payment service, or to introduce new or additional services at any time, including through additional third parties. The payment-related services may contain links to certain third-party websites, applications, services, or resources ("Third Party Services"). Any such Third Party Services are subject to different terms or conditions and privacy practices created or controlled by third party providers and not Nesterly, and Members should review them carefully and independently. Nesterly is not responsible for or liable for the availability, accuracy, reliability, or anything related to Third Party Services, including the content thereon. Links or other access to information of Third Party Service providers shall not constitute an endorsement by Nesterly of such providers or their services.
You may not use Nesterly's payment related services except as authorized by the laws of the United States of America, the laws of the jurisdiction where you reside, and any other applicable laws. Specifically, but not by way of limitation, Nesterly's payment related services may not be used to send or receive funds or currency into (i) any United States embargoed countries; (ii) to anyone on the United States Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the United States Commerce Department's list of Denied Persons List or Entry List. By agreeing to these Terms, by accessing and/or using the Nesterly Platform, you further represent and warrant that you are not listed on any United States Government list of prohibited or restricted parties or that your homesharing accommodation is located in any embargoed country or on any United States Government list of terrorist supporting countries.
Payment Processing Services
Payment processing services, which are a feature of the Nesterly Platform, are currently provided by Stripe, and where applicable, may include money transmission services pursuant to licenses or other regulatory approvals held by Stripe. Payment processing services provided by Stripe are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Services Agreement. By agreeing to these Terms or by accessing, searching, or using the Nesterly Platform, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Connected Account Agreement and the Stripe Services Agreement, as they may be amended or modified from time-to-time by Stripe. Nesterly's provision of any payment processing services through Stripe is subject, and conditioned upon, your agreement to provide Nesterly up-to-date, accurate, and complete information relating to you and your payment instrument(s) and you expressly authorize Nesterly to share this information and transaction-related information relating to your use of payment related services with Stripe. Nesterly reserves the right to provide payment processing services through other third party vendors, and if it chooses
Appointment of Nesterly as Limited Payment Collection Agent
By agreeing to these Terms, and in accessing or using the Nesterly Platform, Hosts appoint Nesterly as their respective limited payment collection agent, authorized to receive and collect payments for transactions entered into between Members, including Total Fees owed by Guests to Hosts as set forth in these Terms. Total fees include the one-time Match Fee of $95-195 depending on the length of stay and the ongoing Service Fee, which is 2.5% of the total monthly rent. Payments made by Guests to Nesterly in connection with a booking shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to Hosts, and Hosts agree to provide the booking in the agreed-upon manner as if the Host has received payment directly from the Guest. You further agree that Nesterly's obligation to remit payments to Hosts is conditioned upon and extends only to sums that it has successfully received from Guests in accordance with the relevant agreements, and also that in accepting appointment as the limited payment collection agent, Nesterly assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of Hosts or Guests, Members, or any other person. As limited payment collection agent, Nesterly assumes no liability or obligation for any funds or obligations owed by Guests that were not collected by Nesterly in its role under this Paragraph
Each Host and Guest acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the fact that Nesterly is not a party to the agreement between Hosts and Guests, Nesterly acts as the Host's payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting collection from Guests on behalf of the Host. Upon Guests' remittance to Nesterly, Guests' payment obligation to the Host for agreed upon amounts is extinguished, and Nesterly is responsible for remitting funds collected to Hosts in the agreed upon manner. In the event that Nesterly does not remit such amounts, Hosts’ recourse is only against Nesterly, and not Guests directly.

Nesterly expects its users and Members to respect copyright law and the intellectual property rights of third parties. In our sole discretion, we reserve the right to terminate, suspend, block, and/or limit the Nesterly Account of any Member we believe has or is infringing the copyright and intellectual property rights of third parties.

Upon our review, we may remove the allegedly infringing material, or we may decline to do so, if for example, we determine the materials are not infringing, you fail to provide adequate information to us to allow identification or review of the allegedly infringing material, or if the material is protected by law, such as under the fair use doctrine.
Please note, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), section 512(f), provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that activity is infringing may be liable for damages, including costs and attorney’s fees.

DMCA Copyright Notices (the "Notice")
- Identification of the work or material that you claim has been infringed. If this material exists online, please provide a specific URL that resolves to the allegedly infringing material.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing, including its location on the Nesterly Platform with sufficient detail so that Nesterly is capable of finding the material and verifying its existence (e.g., in most circumstances, we will need a URL).
- Contact information, including your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or law (i.e. fair use doctrine).
- A statement by you that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that, under penalty of perjury, you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
- A physical or electronic signature of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner.

SANCTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF THESE TERMS
In addition to any other rights Nesterly may have under these Terms, at law or in equity, it may, in its sole discretion, take any action permitted by law for any violation of these Terms or any other policy or agreement between you and Nesterly, including but not limited to removing User Content you posted, limiting your Nesterly Account access, requiring you to forfeit certain funds, assessing monetary penalties or costs, terminating your Nesterly Account, decreasing your status or search rank, investigating you, and/or cooperating with law enforcement agencies in investigation or prosecution.
ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION
You agree that Nesterly may, in its sole discretion, without prior notice or explanation, immediately terminate, limit your access to, or suspend your Nesterly account, Nesterly Messaging Services, and access to the Nesterly Platform or Services. Cause for such termination, limitation of access, or suspension shall include, but not be limited to, breaches or violations of the Terms or other incorporated documents or Nesterly Policies, requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, discontinuance or material modification to the Nesterly Services (or any part thereof), unexpected technical or security issues or problems, extended periods of inactivity, engagement by you in fraudulent or illegal activities, and/or nonpayment of any fees or penalties owed by you in connection with the Nesterly Platform.

ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You and Nesterly agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
This Section is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us, including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, or arising out of or relating to these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to advertising); and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement. The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve any and all disputes with Nesterly as follows:
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Nesterly will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Nesterly will pay the fees invoiced by JAMS, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration may take place in the county where you reside at the time of filing. For individuals residing outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States of America, and you and Nesterly agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Boston, Massachusetts in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver: The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND NESTERLY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations, or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your Nesterly Account or the Nesterly Platform, if any.
YOUR USE OF THE NESTERLY PLATFORM, NESTERLY SERVICES, OR ANY COLLECTIVE CONTENT IN CONNECTION THEREWITH SHALL BE SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT NESTERLY DOES NOT HAVE AN OBLIGATION, BUT RESERVES THE RIGHT FOR ANY REASON, TO (A) MONITOR OR REVIEW USER CONTENT; OR (B) FOR ANY PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE, CONDUCT IDENTITY VERIFICATION, BACKGROUND (INCLUDING CRIMINAL BACKGROUND) OR REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER CHECKS ON ANY MEMBER OR USER.

ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS CONTAINED IN THE WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY PARAGRAPHS IMMEDIATELY ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
