By signing up to receive a Neighborside newsletter, you agree to the following terms and conditions.
We reserve the right to refuse to publish any message that, in our opinion, does not comply with our neighborliness guidelines. The Neighborliness decisions of our authorized administrators are final and not subject to review. By design, Neighborside is not a venue for unfettered discussion. There are many venues on the Internet and elsewhere to which our subscribers or others may turn for communications that we deem inappropriate for Neighborside.
Any dispute or claim between you and Neighborside shall be governed by Arizona law as it applies to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Arizona between Arizona residents.
Any dispute or claim between you and Neighborside shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate.
CLAIMS MAY BE BROUGHT ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this agreement. You can find the AAA’s rules, and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings, at www.adr.org.

Neighbors and Sponsors Act for Themselves
We don’t interview, run background checks on, monitor, supervise, or control our subscribers or our sponsors. By publishing ads for sponsors or messages as requested by our subscribers, we do not become an employer, placement agency, representative, or agent of/for them.
