Copyright Policy

At LAtitude, we require our users to respect intellectual property rights. If copyrighted content that belongs to you was posted without your permission to www.la-latitude.comwww.latitude.camp, or www.noho.house (each a “Website” and together the “Websites”) or sent through one of those Services, we want to know about it. Please send us notice of the alleged infringement, using the following contact information:

LA LAtitude, LLC
Attn: LEGAL
10717 Addison St
North Hollywood, CA 91601
United States

Please include in your notice:

  1. an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or someone authorized to act on their behalf;
  2. the name, address, telephone number, and email address of the copyright owner;
  3. identification of the copyrighted work that is being infringed;
  4. identification of where the infringing material is located on our Website (a URL works best);
  5. a statement that you have a good faith belief that the use isn’t authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
  6. a statement that
    1. the information in your notice is accurate, and
    2. you’re authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
    This statement must be made under penalty of perjury, meaning if any part of the statement is false, you could be committing perjury—a serious offense that’s sometimes even classified as a felony.

We are only able to accept notices in the languages into which these terms are made available by us.

We will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using LAtitude Services that are reported to us, at the address above, in accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) or, as applicable, other laws.  With respect to LAtitude Services hosted in the United States, these notices must include the required information set forth in the DMCA.

Finally, a warning: If you knowingly make a false statement in your claim of copyright infringement, then you may be subject to liability for damages and heavy civil penalties. If you’re not sure whether material on one of our Websites infringes your copyright, then you should speak with a lawyer before notifying us. We may forward your notice to the user that uploaded the content.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

You and LAtitude agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and LA LAtitude or its affiliates, except disputes relating to the enforcement of LA LAtitude or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights.  “Dispute” includes any dispute, action or other controversy between you and us concerning the LAtitude Services or these terms, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis.  You and LA LAtitude empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.

In the event of a dispute, you or LA LAtitude must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested.  You must send any notice of dispute to LA LAtitude, 12400 Ventura Blvd. Ste 275, Studio City, California 91604, USA, Attention: Legal/Arbitration Notice.  We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.  You and LA LAtitude will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent.  After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration.  You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.

If you and LA LAtitude do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act.  YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.  Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes.  For more information, visit www.adr.org or, in the United States, call 800-778-7879.  Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online.  The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.

Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, LA LAtitude will pay all filing, AAA, and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.  If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if we did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then we will pay you the amount of the award or US $1,000, whichever is greater, and pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably accrue for investigating, preparing and pursuing your claim in arbitration.  We waive any right to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any non-frivolous arbitration between you and us.

If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place in Los Angeles County, California.  For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Los Angeles, California, United States of America, and you and LA LAtitude agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located there, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.  Neither you nor LA LAtitude will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity.  No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding.  If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.

Choice of Forum

You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms or LAtitude Services that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles county, California, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.

Choice of Law

These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.

Severability

If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Survival

The provisions of these terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these terms shall survive such termination.

Waiver

No waiver of any provision of these terms by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
