Regardless of where you access or use the API from, these Terms and your use of the API will be governed by and construed solely in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, excluding any otherwise applicable rules of conflict of laws, which would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of New York.
Any and all disputes, claims or controversies between you and Guesty regarding these Terms or the use of the API, which are not amicably resolved, shall be settled through binding arbitration (rather than in court) by telephone, online or based solely upon written submissions without in-person appearance, administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (which are available at www.adr.org). Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. However, you may lodge claims in small claims court if your claim qualifies.

No waiver, concession, extension, representation, alteration, addition or derogation from these Terms by us, or pursuant to the Terms, will be effective unless consented to explicitly and executed in writing by our authorized representative.

Any attempted or actual assignment by you, without our prior consent, shall be null and void.

permissible by law to reflect as closely as possible, the original intention of that provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall continue to remain in full force and effect.
