In the event that you have a dispute with one or more vendors, you release GetARoom (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, know and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

To make changes to your reservation, simply call our toll free number or click on the Customer Care button on the Site.
c. Hotel Reservation Payment. Your credit card is charged in full at the time you book a reservation.

Upon charging your credit card, you authorize us to facilitate your lodging reservation on your behalf including making payment arrangements with the suppliers. The tax recovery charge is a recovery of the estimated taxes that we pay to the lodging suppliers for your reservations.

You shall, at your sole cost and expense, defend, indemnify and hold GetARoom and its affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees, agents, subcontractors, representatives, customers, successors and assigns (in each case, a “GetARoom Indemnitee”) harmless from and against any and all damages, liabilities, losses, costs, fines and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, arising out of, under or in connection with any claim, demand, charge, action, cause of action, or other proceeding arising out of or related to (a) any dispute or alleged dispute between you and any vendor or service offered through the Program; (b) any breach by you of any covenant, representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement or otherwise; (c) any irregularity, error, problem or defect occurring on the Site that is caused by you; (d) any defamatory or illegal, or allegedly defamatory or illegal, material transmitted across the Site or Program by you (or any person that gains access to the network through you under this Agreement or otherwise); or (e) any claim by any person resulting from your negligent acts or omissions, or arising out of or in connection with the use of any vendor service, regardless of whether such claim is founded in contract, tort or warranty. Each GetARoom Indemnitee shall provide prompt written notice of any claim or liability and shall tender defense or settlement to you, and shall fully cooperate in defense of the claim. Should you fail to honor a timely request for indemnification, then the GetARoom Indemnitee shall, in addition to all other amounts it shall be entitled to receive from you, be entitled to all costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in the enforcement of the right of indemnification hereunder when such enforcement results in a legal judgment in its favor or an acknowledgment by you that the claimed indemnification is valid in a settlement of such claim.
10. Dispute Resolution.
In the event a dispute arises between you and GetARoom, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and GetARoom agree that any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or your use of the Site (”Claims”) shall be resolved in accordance with this section or as otherwise mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties. Before resorting to any alternatives, GetARoom strongly encourages you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution, and GetARoom will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute. For any Claim (excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief), you or GetARoom agree to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. In such cases, the American Arbitration Association or JAMS shall administer the arbitration in accordance with their applicable rules, or any other established ADR provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. All Claims (excluding requests for injunctive or equitable relief) between the parties must be resolved using the dispute resolution above by the first party to make a Claim. Should either party file an action contrary to this Section 14, the other party may recover attorneys’ fees and costs; provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed Claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the Claim.
