- How the Outer Services Work. We sell certain Outer-branded furniture (“Merchandise”)Through our Website. Because we do not have a retail showroom that we own or operate, we have created a platform where potential customers can see how the Merchandise looks in homes where our customers have purchased such Merchandise. Our Services may be used to facilitate the reserving of showroom appointments (“Showroom Appointments”) between users who have purchased Merchandise and wish to use their residential home (“Property”) to show such Merchandise (“Hosts”) and users who would like to schedule a time to view and evaluate such Merchandise at the Host’s Property (“Guest”). The Hosts and Guests make arrangements for Showroom Appointments directly with each other through the Platform. If a Guest is interested in purchasing Merchandise, the Guest may also do so through the Services. Outer is not an owner or operator of any of the Properties. Our responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Services as described herein.
HOSTS ARE NOT EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, JOINT VENTURERS, OR FRANCHISEES OF OUTER. OUTER DOES NOT PERFORM ANY OBLIGATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH SHOWROOM APPOINTMENTS AND DOES NOT EMPLOY HOSTS TO PERFORM SUCH OBLIGATIONS. USERS HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OUTER DOES NOT SUPERVISE, DIRECT, CONTROL OR MONITOR A HOST’S SHOWROOM APPOINTMENTS. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HOSTS AND OUTER ARE THAT OF AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE HOSTS AND GUESTS DIRECTLY WITH EACH OTHER.

OUTER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL SHOWROOM APPOINTMENTS, PROPERTIES AND MERCHANDISE.

- Arbitration Rules and Forum.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Outer, Inc., Gogency Global, Inc., 850 New Burton Road, Suite 201, Dover, Delaware 19904, Attention: Registered Agent. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Company will pay them for you. In addition, Outer will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Outer will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- Authority of Arbitrator.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Outer. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
- Waiver of Jury Trial.
YOU AND OUTER HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Outer are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 18.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
