1. Scope of youin Services
1.1 The youin Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and
certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are
“Hosts” and the services they offer are “Host Services”) to publish such Host Services on the
youin Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are
seeking to book such Host Services (Members using Host Services are “Guests”). Host
Services may include the offering of vacation or other properties for use ("Accommodations"),
single or multi-day activities in various categories (“Experiences”), access to unique events and
locations (“Events”), and a variety of other travel and non-travel related services.
1.2 As the provider of the youin Platform, youin does not own, create, sell, resell, provide,
control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Host Services, nor is youin an
organiser or retailer of travel packages under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. Hosts alone are
responsible for their Listings and Host Services. When Members make or accept a booking,
they are entering into a contract directly with each other. youin is not and does not become a

party. youin does not endorse any Member, Listing or Host Services. Any references to a
Member being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a
relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an
endorsement, certification or guarantee by youin about any Member, including of the Member's
identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should
always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to participate in an Experience
or Event or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate
and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined
below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the
photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by youin of any Host or Listing.
1.4 If you choose to use the youin Platform as a Host or Co-Host (as defined below), your
relationship with youin is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an

smallest unit supported by a given currency (i.e., U.S. cents, Euro cents or other supported
currencies). Where youin ’s third-party payment services provider does not support payments in
the smaller unit supported by a given currency, youin may, in its sole discretion, round up or
round down the displayed amounts that are payable from or to Guests or Hosts to the nearest

percentage of the Listing Fees set by Hosts, a set amount per day, or other variations.

19.2 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and youin mutually agree that any dispute, claim or
controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination,
validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the youin Platform, the Host
Services, the Group Payment Service, or the Collective Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be
settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about
whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and youin
agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
19.3 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and youin each agree that the following claims
are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a
court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement,
misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other

than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or
representative proceeding. If the “class action lawsuit” waiver or the “class-wide arbitration”
waiver in this Section 19.11 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety
of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute and the Dispute
must proceed in court. If the “private attorney general action” waiver or the “representative
proceeding” waiver in this Section 19.11 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute,
those waivers may be severed from this Arbitration Agreement and you and youin agree that
any private attorney general claims and representative claims in the Dispute will be severed and
stayed, pending the resolution of any arbitrable claims in the Dispute in individual arbitration.
19.7 Severability. Except as provided in Section 19.11, in the event that any portion of this
Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and
the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.

youin changes this Section 19 (“Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement”) after the date
you last 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) within thirty (30) days
of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in

however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any
Dispute between you and youin (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto),
which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and youin .
19.9 Survival. Except as provided in Section 19.12 and subject to Section 15.8, this Section 19
