Terms & Conditions

1. Introduction

MoveToSetúbal (“MoveToSetúbal”, “MoveToSetúbal.com”, “we” or “us”) is a directory of places, services and events focusing primarily upon the Setúbal District of Portugal and nearby cities and towns. We (including Kenneth J. Mitteldorf, a citizen of the United States of America and a resident of Portugal, and any persons and/or entities who may from time-to-time be associated to provide specific services) operate the MoveToSetúbal website at MoveToSetúbal.com (the “Site”) and all related websites, software, mobile apps, and other services that we now or hereafter provide (together, the “Service” or “Services”) with the dual goals of 1) encouraging English-speakers to visit or make their homes in and around the Setúbal District of Portugal and 2) encouraging businesses in and around the Setúbal District to provide appropriate services to their English-speaking customers so as to make their businesses attractive to such customers. We do this by offering a technology platform that we make available to our users so they can publish listings profiling their business or service, to promote events, or to advertise property available for rent, to search for a such listings, and to engage in discussions related to those listings. MoveToSetúbal is limited to facilitating contact between users offering goods, services, entertainment, or information and those who are looking for those offerings. MoveToSetúbal does not have any involvement in any transactions that may arise from such contact. We are only a simple intermediary, aiming to facilitate contact between people.

Your use of the Service, and our provision of the Service to you, constitutes an agreement by you and MoveToSetúbal to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Before visiting, browsing or using the Site, you must read and accept the following terms and conditions. The use of the Service implicitly constitutes the user’s acceptance and compliance to these general conditions.

We reserve the right to modify these general conditions of service at any time; so you should periodically check for any changes made to these conditions when accessing the Site. If, at any time, you decide not to accept the general conditions of service, you must immediately stop using the website. Any condition or clause that you may propose and that may represent an addition or contradiction of these general conditions of service will not be taken into account by us, and will have no validity between you and us.

For the purposes contained in these general conditions, the status of User shall be acquired by any person using the Service, whether this should require previous registration or not.

Generally speaking, user registration will not be necessary to access the Service. However, use of certain service functionalities may be subject to the user’s prior registration, and subsequently the reading and understanding of information pertaining to data protection will be necessary.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. BY REGISTERING FOR OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICE, YOU ARE TELLING US THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, INCLUDING OUR PRIVACY POLICY (TOGETHER, THESE “TERMS”). If you don’t agree with anything we propose in these Terms, please don’t (and you don’t have our permission to) use any part of the Service.

THIS PART IS REALLY IMPORTANT: These Terms require that if we get into a dispute with you relating to the Service (or vice versa), unless you live in the United Kingdom or the European Union, the dispute will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. This means that YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO SUE US (OR BE SUED BY US) UNDER THIS CONTRACT (except for some disputes that can be taken to small claims court). Our disputes will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT A JUDGE OR JURY and you cannot start or join a class action lawsuit. Have a very careful read through Section 20 for the actual details regarding our agreement to arbitrate, which we’ve tried to make fair to our users.

2. Eligibility

The Service is designed for use by people who are at least 18 years old. If you are not yet 18, then you can’t use the Service. If you are 18 or older, you promise to us that you have never been suspended from the Service, and promise that your use of the Service won’t break any laws or regulations. If you are using the Service on behalf of a company, organization, or other kind of entity, you represent to us that you have authority to bind the organization to these Terms on its behalf.

3. Accounts and Registration

You promise that all the information you provide is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date in the future. We also ask you to provide a password to protect the security of your account. You are responsible for keeping your password safe and confidential. Any activity that happens under your account will be your responsibility. If ever you think that your account may no longer be secure, you need to notify us immediately at [email protected]úbal.com.

That said, we may at any time remove, edit, screen, or block any User Content from the Service (without notifying you first) for any reason, including if we think the User Content violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. When you use the Service, you will be exposed to the User Content of other users, some of which may be offensive, inaccurate, or indecent.

20. Governing Law, Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

      1. Residents of the United Kingdom and the European Union. If you are a resident of the United Kingdom or the European Union, this Section 20.A applies to you. This Agreement is governed by the laws of Portugal. These General Conditions are subject to the laws of Portugal. Any dispute arising will be submitted to and resolved by, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, by the Courts of Lisbon or, only where required or otherwise appropriate, the Courts where the user lives. The courts of Portugal will have non-exclusive jurisdiction for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under this Agreement, which means that as a consumer you may only bring any lawsuit or court proceedings against us in a court in your country of residence of the courts of Portugal. If MoveToSetúbal wishes to enforce any of its rights against you, we may do so only in the courts of your country of residence. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
      2. Residents of the US and Other Countries. If you are a resident of the United States, or any other country outside of the United Kingdom, or the European Union, this Section 20.B applies to you:
        1. Generally. THESE GENERAL CONDITIONS ARE SUBJECT TO THE LAWS OF PORTUGAL. ANY DISPUTE ARISING WILL BE SUBMITTED TO AND RESOLVED BY, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THE COURTS OF LISBON. Only in the event the preceding sentence is unenforceable, and in the interest in resolving disputes between you and us in the most efficient and cost effective way, you and we agree to resolve any and all disputes arising in connection with these Terms or your use of the Service by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. It uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for limited discovery (i.e., pre-trial fact finding) than in court, and usually is not appealable in court. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, includes all claims, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
        2. Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 20.B.i, we both agree that nothing in these Terms waives or limits either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through federal, state, or local agencies, (iii) seek injunctive relief or other provisional relief in aid arbitration from a court of law, or (iv) to file a lawsuit in a court of law to address intellectual property claims.
        3. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between us will be held under the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. If you would like a copy of the AAA Rules, they are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
        4. Notice and Process. If one of us intends to seek an arbitration, then they must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), UPS (signature required), or DHL (signature required), or, if we don’t have a physical address on file for you, by email (“Notice”). Our address for Notice is: MoveToSetúbal, attn.: Kenneth J. Mitteldorf, Av. Bento Gonçalves 30, 9-dto., Setúbal 2910-431, Portugal. Any Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (b) describe the specific relief requested (“Demand”). You and we agree to use good faith efforts to resolve any claim directly, but if we don’t reach a resolution within 60 days after the Notice is received, you or we may start arbitration proceedings. During the arbitration proceeding, the amount of any settlement offers by you or us will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award (if any). If our dispute is resolved through arbitration in your favor, we will pay you the greater of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator (if any), (ii) the last written settlement offered by us to settle the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award, and (iii) $1,000.
        5. Fees. If you commence arbitration under these Terms, we will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee if your claim is for $10,000 or less. Otherwise, the payment of filing fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you can choose whether the arbitration is conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, (ii) via telephone, with no in-person hearings, or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim is for more than $10,000, the arbitration hearings will take place at a location that we agree upon in Palm Beach County, Florida. If the arbitrator rules that the substance of your claim or the relief you seek in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules and you agree to reimburse us for any amounts we previously paid but for which you are obligated to pay under the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award (if any) are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes regarding the payment of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
        6. No Class Actions. YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator cannot consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not preside over any form of representative or class proceeding.
        7. Modifications. If we make any future changes to this arbitration agreement (other than a change to our address for Notice), you can reject the changes by sending us written notice (to our address for Notice) within 30 days of the change. If you do so, your account on the Service will immediately terminate and this arbitration agreement, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you rejected, will survive termination.
        8. Enforceability. If Section 20.b.vi is found to be unenforceable, or if the entirety of the arbitration agreement in this Section 20.b is found to be unenforceable, then this Section 20.b will be null and void and, if this happens, you and we agree to submit any disputes arising in connection with these Terms or your use of the Service in the exclusive jurisdiction described in Section 20.c.
      3. Governing Law. THESE GENERAL CONDITIONS ARE SUBJECT TO THE LAWS OF PORTUGAL. If you are a resident of the United States or any other country outside of the United Kingdom or the European Union, and only if a lawsuit or arbitration is permitted outside of Portugal under these Terms, or required by operation of law, you and we agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in (or with jurisdiction over) Palm Beach County, Florida, in which case the Court or Arbitrator shall apply the laws of Florida, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
