5.1. Travel Services. Through the Services, you may receive services from third-party providers of travel and related services (“Travel Services”), such as airlines, hotel operators, rail companies, travel inventory aggregators, travel networks and agencies, and car rental agencies (“Travel Provider(s)”). In order to facilitate the purchase of Travel Services, you authorize Navan to submit certain information, including your name and other personal information and your payment information (collectively, the “Shared Information”), to the Travel Provider to the extent required by the Travel Provider. As an example and by way of illustration only: to facilitate your purchase of an airline ticket, Navan may provide your name, other identifying information, and payment information to the Travel Provider (the airline).
5.1.1. Navan is not responsible for the provision of Travel Services and does not guarantee the correctness of any material, information, or results made available to you by or from Travel Providers, and the presentation of travel inventory through the Services does not constitute a binding contract offer by Navan or the respective Travel Provider. You acknowledge and agree that (i) the purchase of Travel Services may be subject to the terms and conditions, agreements (such as contract of carriage), and privacy and security policies of the specific Travel Provider you select (“Travel Provider Terms”), and (ii) the use of Travel Services will be subject to your compliance with applicable law. Please read Traveler Provider Terms carefully, as they govern the provision of Travel Services by the Travel Providers. You are responsible for, and assume all risk arising from, the selection, use and receipt of any Travel Services. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of all Shared Information you provide to Navan.
5.1.2. Navan takes commercially reasonable measures to check the accuracy of the information and description of the Travel Services displayed on the Services; however, Navan does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information or descriptions, as provided by Travel Providers.

Navan expressly reserves the right to correct any pricing errors on the Services and/or pending reservations made under an incorrect price.
5.1.3. Navan or the Travel Provider may have to verify the following to secure your booking: (i) the validity of the payment card (through a charge of a nominal value that is either refunded within a few days or deducted from the final payment due to the travel supplier) and, (ii) the availability of funds on the payment card (to be confirmed by the bank issuing your credit card).
5.1.4. Navan is not a party to the terms of any contracts agreed between you and the Travel Providers. Navan is not liable for the performance of any Travel Service, any loss or injury to you or a third party resulting from a Travel Service, or any unauthorized use, disclosure, or misuse of any Shared Information by a Travel Provider.
5.2. Travel Risk. By offering reservations for Travel Services via the Services, Navan does not represent or warrant that travel to such areas is advisable or without risk, and Navan is not liable for damages or losses that may result from travel to such destinations. The Travel Providers are not agents, subcontractors, or employees of Navan. Navan disclaims all liability relating to the actions or inactions of Travel Providers or to any Travel Services, including any liability arising from the use or disclosure of any Shared Information and from any actions or inactions that result in any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages. Navan has no liability to you and will make no refund in the event that any delay, cancellation, overbooking, strike, Force Majeure Event, or other cause that impacts any Travel Services.
6. PAYMENTS; TAXES

You are responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information and notifying Navan of any changes to such information. You represent and warrant you are authorized to use the payment instrument provided, and that any and all Fees may be billed to that instrument and will not be rejected. Navan may change Fees or charge additional Fees at any time by posting an update to the Services or otherwise providing notice to you.
6.2. Taxes. Fees are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (collectively, “Taxes”). You will be responsible for payment of all Taxes associated with your purchase of Services and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any Fees, other than any taxes based on Navan’s net income, property, or employees. You are responsible for all withholding tax: Taxes will not be deducted from your payments to Navan, except as required by applicable law, in which case you will increase the amount payable as necessary so that, after making all required deductions and withholdings, Navan will receive and retain an amount equal to the amount Navan would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made. Upon Navan’s request, you will provide proof of withholding tax remittance to the applicable tax authority. Both parties agree to apply any applicable tax treaty and provide the necessary documentation for application of such treaty, where applicable, to reduce the withholding tax. With respect to Taxes charged on or applicable to the purchase or sale of Travel Services, Navan will reflect such Taxes in invoices and/or in the reporting available to you on the Services, and you will be responsible for the payment of all such Taxes.
6.3. Local Currency. All Fees will be billed and charged in USD unless otherwise stated. Any currency conversion required for Trip Fees will be undertaken at the time of the purchase, at the exchange rate applicable at that time.

All currency conversions will be made using exchange rates listed publicly on the OANDA service.
6.4. Late Payments. If Navan is unable to obtain payment of any Fees via the payment information on file or if payment of Fees is otherwise overdue, Navan may, in its discretion: (i) apply interest on past due amounts at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month, but in no event greater than the highest rate of interest allowed by law, calculated from the date such amount was due until the date that payment is received by Navan; and (ii) suspend or terminate your access to the Services. Except as otherwise required by law, Fees are non-refundable.

14. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
14.1. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. In the event of a dispute, you and Navan agree to try for 60 days, upon receipt of a Notice of Dispute, to resolve it informally. If we can’t, you and Navan agree to binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will decide, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of review under the FAA. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, requests for public injunctions, and any other proceeding or request for relief where someone acts in a representative capacity aren’t allowed. Nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties. All terms capitalized but not defined in this Section 14 will have the meaning ascribed to them in the applicable AAA rules, currently available at https://www.adr.org/Rules (“AAA Rules”).
14.2. Disputes Covered. The term "dispute" is as broad as it can be. It includes any claim or controversy between you and us concerning the Services, your account, Trips, Travel Providers, or anything else under this Agreement under any legal theory, except disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of your, your licensors’, our, or our licensors’ Intellectual Property Rights or confidential information.
14.3. Required Notice. If you have a dispute that can’t be resolved and you wish to pursue arbitration, you must first send an individualized Notice of Dispute to Navan, ATTN: Legal, 3045 Park Blvd., Palo Alto, CA 94306, with an email copy to [email protected]. This Notice of Dispute is a prerequisite to initiating any arbitration. Any applicable statute of limitations will be tolled from the date of a properly submitted individualized Notice of Dispute through the first date on which an arbitration may properly be filed under this Section 14.
14.4. Small Claims Court Option. Instead of sending a Notice of Dispute, either you or we may sue the other party in small claims court seeking only individualized relief, so long as the action meets the small claims court’s requirements and remains an individual action seeking individualized relief. The small claims court must be in your county of residence (or, if a business, your principal place of business).
14.5. Commencing arbitration. To initiate arbitration, you must file the Demand for Arbitration with the AAA as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration - Consumer Arbitration Rules at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. You must send the written Demand for Arbitration to Navan, ATTN: Legal, 3045 Park Blvd., Palo Alto, CA 94306, with an email copy to [email protected], concurrent with filing the Demand with AAA. Arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules or by mutual agreement. The arbitrator will apply the law of the state of California, regardless of conflict of laws principles, except that the FAA governs all provisions relating to arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the AAA Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you); (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us; (iii) via videoconference; or (iv) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $40,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
14.6. Attorneys’ fees and costs. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules, and where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. In order to initiate arbitration, each party will be responsible for paying the filing fees required by the AAA. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, or you would otherwise be eligible for a fee waiver in court, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, regardless of the outcome of the arbitration, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim, or defense that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law and the AAA Rules.
14.7. Severability. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, a court finds any part of this Section 14 unenforceable as to any claim or request for a remedy, then the parties agree to arbitrate all claims and remedies subject to arbitration before litigating in court any remaining claims or remedies (such as a request for a public injunction remedy, in which case the arbitrator issues an award on liability and individual relief before a court considers that request). Otherwise, if any other part of Section 14 is found to be unenforceable, the remainder will remain in effect (with an arbitration award issued before any court proceeding begins).
15.1. Governing Law. This Agreement and all matters arising out of or relating to the Agreement are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws.
15.2. Waiver. The waiver by either party of any default or breach of the Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach.
15.3. Notices. Any notices provided by Navan under the Agreement will be given (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices by e-mail, the recipient will be the e-mail address you provided, and the date of receipt will be the date on which such notice is transmitted.
15.4. Severability. Each of the provisions of this Agreement is separate and severable and enforceable accordingly. If any provision of the Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect and the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision in any other jurisdiction shall not in any way be affected or impaired.
15.5. Force Majeure. Navan will not be liable hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) on account of events beyond its reasonable control, which may include without limitation denial-of-service attacks, strikes (except by its own employees), shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes, and material shortages (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event, Navan will be excused from any further performance of its obligations affected by the Force Majeure Event for so long as the event continues.
15.6. Relationship Between the Parties; No Third Parties. Nothing in the Agreement may be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or to incur obligations on the other’s behalf without such other party’s prior written consent. The Agreement is for the sole benefit of the signatories and is not intended to benefit any third party. Only the parties may enforce the Agreement.
15.7. Assignment; Upgrade. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any party without our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer this Agreement and any or all of its rights and obligations without consent. In the event you or your employer upgrades your Services to an enterprise or similar subscription subject to separate terms, this Agreement will terminate and your use of the Services will be governed by such separate terms.
15.8. Entire Agreement; Translated Versions. The Agreement, together with any attached or referenced documents, constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties concerning its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of the Agreement. The Agreement is binding in the English language only. The English language version of the Agreement will control in the event of a conflict or inconsistency with any translated version. Any version of the Agreement in any other language is for convenience only.
