While we cannot guarantee the work performed by a listed Service Professional, and while we have no obligation to you with regard to your relationship with a Service Professional, the HULUNY resolution process has been developed to try and assist you in resolving any disputes that may arise in the course of a home improvement repair or maintenance project with a Service Professional who you learned about through the HULUNY Services. Without modifying our statements under this Agreement, we may, upon your request, provide limited assistance in resolving disputes between you and a Service Professional. You must participate and use good faith efforts to resolve problems through the HULUNY resolution process. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that HULUNY is under no obligation to become involved in or impose resolution in any dispute between or among users or any third party. Such limited assistance in no way nullifies the release and indemnification described in these Terms & Conditions.
ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW:
The exclusive means of resolving any dispute between you and the contractor that has provided service to you HULUNY or any claim made by you or HULUNY arising out of or relating to your use of this Website and/or HULUNY’s services (including any alleged breach of these Terms and Conditions) shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against HULUNY in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction OR EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED BY APPLICABLE FEDERAL OR STATE LAW. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against HULUNY any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
In the event of a dispute over claims or coverage YOU agree to file a written claim with HULUNY and allow HULUNY thirty (30) calendar days to respond to the claim. The parties agree to mediate in good faith before resorting to mandatory arbitration. Except where prohibited, if a dispute arises from or relates to this Agreement or its breach, and if the dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions you agree that:
a. Any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Agreement shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.
b. Any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Service Professional shall be resolved exclusively by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Rules. Controversies or claims shall be submitted to arbitration regardless of the theory under which they arise, including without limitation contract, tort, common law, statutory, or regulatory duties or liability.
c. Any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred to a maximum of $500 per claim, but in no event attorneys’ fees.
d. Under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain awards for, and you hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of using HULUNY referral services, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Maryland, U.S.A. without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Maryland.

Limitation of Liability:
IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE, OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER THEORY, TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES), ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY USE OF, THE INABILITY TO USE, OR THE RESULTS OF USE OF THIS WEBSITE OR ITS CONTENT, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Limitation of Legal Remedies:
INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND WE EACH AGREE TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ON A BILATERAL (INDIVIDUAL) BASIS. You and we agree that any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of your use of this website or its content (“Claims”) which cannot be settled by mutual agreement of the parties shall be resolved by one arbitrator through binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes Claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver:
You and we each agree that each of us is waiving the right to a trial by jury and may bring claims against the other only in an individual capacity and not in a class action or representative proceeding. All arbitrations shall be conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis; and an arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these terms specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others or joining in any arbitration proceedings brought by any other person (“class action waiver”).
The Terms and the relationship between you and HULUNY shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Maryland, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against HULUNY that is not subject to arbitration must be resolved by a court located in Montgomery County, Maryland. You hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
Choice of Law:
This Agreement concerns a transaction in interstate commerce, and therefore shall be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Â§ 1 et seq. The FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
Any claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim shall not be subject to arbitration.
Notice of Rights:
a. By using the HULUNY Website or APP and/or HULUNY’s services in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and HULUNY (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures.
b. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration provision, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration provision is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against HULUNY (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Montgomery County, Maryland. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
