Terms of Use

Welcome and thank you for your interest in NexTable, Inc. (“NexTable“). NexTable allows users to make online reservations at restaurants (“Restaurants”) through its website located at www.nextable.com and other affiliated websites owned and operated by NexTable (the “Site”, and any products and services provided by NexTable, collectively referred to as the “Service“).

 

1.      Acceptance of the Terms. Please carefully read the following terms of use and all other rules and guidelines that we may communicate to you from time to time through the Service, including without limitation the additional policies identified in Section 2 (Additional Policies) below (collectively, the “Terms”), as these Terms create a binding legal contract between you and NexTable. By accessing the Site, or availing yourself of the Service in any manner, you (“You” or “User”) agree that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by and comply with the Terms. If at any time you do not agree to these Terms, you must immediately terminate your use of the Service.

 

2.      Reservation Services. NexTable provides the Service to Users to enable Users to make online reservations at participating third-party restaurants (“Restaurants”). To make a reservation, you will be required to provide your name, mobile telephone number and an email address. When you provide your mobile phone number and email address, you consent to receive information about your reservation and other communications through text services or the email address You have specified.

 

If you would rather not receive email from NexTable, please send an email to support@nextable.com with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line and you will be unsubscribed from receiving further mailings. You acknowledge and agree, however, that you will still receive reservation confirmation emails, no-show confirmation emails, reservation change confirmation emails, reservation cancelation confirmation emails and other emails relating to reservations booked by you through the Site, even if you has opted not to receive periodic email from NexTable. While you cannot unsubscribe from all service messages, you may select not to receive future diner-feedback invitation emails by following the “unsubscribe” instructions provided. You will never receive email from any third party affiliated with NexTable, such as a Restaurant, unless you have affirmatively opted to receive such email. In accordance with our Privacy Policy, we do not share any of your individual information without your prior consent.

Any reservation is subject to the availability of the Restaurants for your specified time, date and party, and is not confirmed until a confirmation email has been received. Some restaurants may require that you provide your credit card to make a reservation, for example, if the reservation is for a large party or for special events. If your credit card is required for your reservation, you will be asked to enter your credit card information during the reservation process.

 

3.      No-Show Policy. In order to maintain the quality of the Services that we offer to all Users, NexTable requires that you provide at least 60 minutes notice of the cancellation of a reservation made through the Service, which may be performed by contacting the restaurant directly or by doing so through the Service. In the event that the Restaurant has a separate cancellation policy (for example, for large parties or for special events) and has required that provide a credit card to confirm your reservation, NexTable will provide you with the Restaurant’s cancellation policy at the time of booking. While NexTable does not charge for cancellation fees, you will be required to pay any applicable cancellation fees for any cancellation not made in accordance with the terms of the restaurant’s cancellation policy.

 

If you are unable to make your reservation and fail to cancel within the required time, NexTable will send you an email notifying you that NexTable’s records indicate that you were a no-show for that reservation. You may dispute any no-show by contacting us atsupport@nextable.com or by contacting us through the Site. Any final determination of a no-show shall be made by NexTable at its sole discretion. If you fail to provide us or the applicable Restaurant with the required notice to cancel six reservations within a six (6) month period, NexTable reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate your account.

You may not settle any matter without the prior written consent from NexTable. NexTable will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.

 

  1. Disclaimers. THE SERVICE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE SITE, NEXTABLE CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT, SERVICE OR INFORMATION PROVIDED BY NEXTABLE), USER CONTENT, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT, AND ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, SERVICES OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEXTABLE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY NEXTABLE.

 

  1. Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL NEXTABLE, ITS OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS, OR RESTAURANTS, BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH (I) YOUR VISIT TO A RESTAURANT THROUGH THE SERVICE (II) YOUR USER OF THE SERVICE, NEXTABLE CONTENT, OR THE SITE; (III) THE USE OR ACCESS OF OR INABILITY TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE, ANY CONTEN; OR (IV) THE COMPLIANCE OR NON-COMPLIANCE OF A RESTAURANT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF NEXTABLE IS EXPRESSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  1. Limitations; Basis of the Bargain. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, YOU AGREE THAT BECAUSE SUCH WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND NEXTABLE, AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND NEXTABLE, NEXTABLE’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NEXTABLE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.

 

19.  Dispute Resolution. We are committed to providing you a means of resolving disputes that arise between you and NexTable quickly and cost effectively. Accordingly, you and NexTable agree that we will resolve any claim or dispute that arises out of this Agreement or in connection with your use of the Service (a “Claim“) in accordance with one of the subsections below. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or these Terms must be filed within two (2) years after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. As in many circumstances we are able to resolve disputes with users amicably, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution before escalating to one of the options below. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

A.     Law and Forum for Disputes. This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of North Carolina as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within North Carolina between North Carolina residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against NexTable must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Charlotte, North Carolina, except as described in the Arbitration Option paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Charlotte, North Carolina for the purpose of litigating all Claims that arise between you and NexTable.

B.     Arbitration Option. For any Claim (excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $5,000 and not filed on behalf of a putative class, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The parties shall split any costs and expenses in connection with the Arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, the dispute shall be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules available online at http://www.adr.org. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AAA and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, without breach of this “Arbitration Option” subsection and without any abridgment of the powers of the arbitrators.

C.     Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against NexTable must be resolved in accordance with this Dispute Resolution Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to the Dispute Resolution Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to the Dispute Resolution Section, NexTable may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $1000, provided that NexTable has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

 

19.  Notices. NexTable may provide you with notices by mail, electronic mail, or postings on the Service. You may provide NexTable with notices by United States Registered Mail sent to NexTable, Inc., 601 S. Cedar Suite 111, Charlotte, NC 28202. If notice is provided by electronic mail, notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after electronic mail is sent, unless NexTable is notified that the electronic mail address is invalid. If notice is provided by posting through the Service, then notice will be deemed given upon such posting. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the Service. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.

 

20.  Miscellaneous. This is the entire agreement between you and NexTable relating to the subject matter herein, and supersedes all previous communications, representations, understandings and agreements, either oral or written, between you and NexTable with respect to said subject matter. These Terms shall not be modified or waived except in a writing signed by both parties, or by a change to these Terms as provided in the Section 17 (“Modification of the Terms”), above. In the event any of the provisions of these Terms are held unenforceable or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provisions shall be deemed severed, and the remaining provisions thereof shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of NexTable to enforce, in any one or more instances, any of the provisions herein shall not be construed as a waiver of the prior or future performance of any such terms or conditions. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and NexTable as a result of these Terms or use of the Service. You further acknowledge that by submitting User Content, no confidential, fiduciary, contractually implied, or other relationship is created between you and NexTable other than pursuant to these Terms. The Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by NexTable without restriction, including by operation of law, merger, reincorporation, recapitalization, or sale of all or substantially all of the assets to which this agreement pertains.
