The Services allow registered members to access the Website and, with an Account (as defined below), TRY or BUY Products from City Subscriber in accordance with these Terms. Members also agree to comply with any terms, conditions, or policies that City Subscriber may provide to users from time to time on the Website.
City Subscriber offers one subscription types: rebillable subscriptions (“Recurring Subscriptions”)
Recurring Subscriptions: By purchasing a Recurring Subscription, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Your subscription will be automatically extended for successive terms, at the then-current subscription rate.
A Recurring Subscription membership continues until terminated. City Subscriber or the member can terminate at any time at their discretion with no cancellation fee and no responsibility for recurring charges after cancellation. Upon termination, your Account is not deleted and you can still sign in to the Website until such time as City Subscriber limits your access to or suspends your Account.

Under our subscription programs, the member is sent vouchers and coupons to redeem in their subscribed neighborhood, and have them shipped to the member's listed address. Delivery time for the neighborhood you have selected to explore may vary based upon (a) your delivery address, (b) when you place an order and (c) other circumstances impacting delivery. Accordingly, City Subscriber makes no guarantees as to actual delivery time. We will send you an email letting you know when your Product is shipped. The risk of loss for Products shipped passes to you upon delivery and from then on you bear the risk of loss, provided, however, that if you receive a damaged Product, please email us at info@CitySubscriber.com. All shipping carrier confirmed deliveries are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If you are unable to locate a confirmed delivery, you are required to contact City Subscriber immediately so we can investigate. Until the investigation is complete and we are able to determine the results of the lost Products, at our discretion, we may decide to temporarily suspend the account.
If you have any damage or loss issues, please email us immediately at info@CitySubscriber.com. Also, City Subscriber reserves the right to close your account at any time if we notice multiple cases of excessive “theft” or “loss” to the Products you have subscribed to receive.

If you choose to use our Social Network populating feature to create an account, we may import information for your account or profile on our Website from a Social Network. We only import from the information you allow to be imported from the Social Network access to which is controlled by your privacy settings on that Social Network (“Permitted Social Network Content”). The authentication of your Social Network login credentials is conducted solely by the Social Network. If you do use this feature we will initially create your profile by displaying your first name as the user name displayed to other users, gender, current city, interests, about me, photos, and age (which is calculated from your birthdate). With your permission, we may also combine that information with your public social media profile (which may include your friend list, birthday, work history, interests, current city, photos, personal description and likes). IN ORDER TO VERIFY THAT THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVE FROM A SOCIAL NETWORK IS TRUE, ACCURATE, AND COMPLETE, AS IT WILL CONSTITUTE THE REGISTRATION DATA, WE MAY CONTACT YOU PRIOR TO REGISTERING YOUR ACCOUNT.
When you open an Account, you will be required to provide City Subscriber with accurate, complete and current credit card information for a valid credit card that you are authorized to use. City Subscriber currently only accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card. We do not accept pre-paid or pre-loaded cards or personal check or travelers checks of any kind. By signing up for the Services, you authorize City Subscriber or its agent to bill your credit card for the applicable subscription fee, shipping charges (if any), any and all applicable taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Services. Other fees will be charged to your credit card as you incur them. You agree not to charge back any fees or charges and any charge backs will result in you paying associated charge back fees. For a monthly Recurring Subscription, the renewal date is the day you're billed each month. For example, if we first billed you on February 4, your renewal date is the 4th of each month. We will bill you for another month of service every 4th day of the month.
If City Subscriber does not receive payment from your credit card provider, if your credit card expires or is rejected, or if there is a charge back for any reason, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. Following any such non-payment, we may require you to provide a second valid credit card before continuing to use the Services and you authorize City Subscriber to charge outstanding fees and other amounts due us against any credit card you have on file with us. City Subscriber reserves the right to take all steps necessary to collect amounts due from you, including but not limited to legal action and/or using third party collection agencies. If your account is forwarded to a collection’s agency, you will additionally be liable for any recovery fees and costs charged by the agency. City Subscriber reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your credit card by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, overdraft, insufficient funds, charge backs, and over the credit limit fees. You agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 60 days after they first appear on your Account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 60 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
We reserve the right to determine whether your credit card(s) is/are pre-authorized to accept a minimum charge equal to the Product. In the event we feel the amount of available credit is not sufficient to cover these amounts, we may request that you provide a second valid credit card before continuing to use the Service.
An initial authorization will be processed to verify the validity of the payment method. If submitting payment via credit card, there will be a temporary $29.95 authorization. For new members, membership will be started when your first City Subscriber is ready to ship. The $29.95 monthly subscription fee will be charged on the reoccurring billing date which is the date of sign up of every month.
FREE OR DISCOUNTED TRIAL PERIODS
Free or discounted trial periods are offered at the discretion of City Subscriber and are subject to discontinuation at any time. If you or another member of your household has had an active Account within the last 12 months you are not eligible for a free or discounted trial. We consider your household not eligible if your credit card account or email address have been associated with another active Account in the 12 months prior to the day of Account creation. Creating duplicate Accounts under another name, email, or address in order to obtain more than one free or discounted trial is fraud, in violation of both our Terms and Federal laws regarding mail fraud, and the creator and/or user of such accounts shall be held liable. New Accounts that are eligible for a free trial will be authorized on the first day of Services for the first billing cycle payment. In some cases your credit card available balance or credit limit will be reduced to reflect the authorization; however, no charges will be made against your credit card unless you do not cancel before the required termination date. At the end of your free or discounted trial period City Subscriber will automatically bill your credit card for the next billing cycle of Services. We will not notify you when your trial period has ended. You can view the date your free or discounted trial ends in the Account section on our Website. IF YOU CANCEL PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE OR DISCOUNTED TRIAL, THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND CITY SUBSCRIBER HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You and City Subscriber agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of these Terms, your use of or access to the Website, or any Products or Services offered or sold or purchased through the Website, will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section “Agreement to Arbitrate”).
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern the Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and City Subscriber, except as otherwise stated in the Terms.
You and City Subscriber each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and City Subscriber relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms, your use of or access to the Website, or any Products or Services sold, or purchased through the Website, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate to the exclusion of state law inconsistent therewith.
YOU AND CITY SUBSCRIBER AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND CITY SUBSCRIBER 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, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, 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). ANY RELIEF AWARDED
CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the Terms as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, equitable actions with respect to intellectual property as described above, or the interpretation of prohibition of class and representative actions, private attorney general actions, and non-individualized relief shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed form Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to City Subscriber should be sent to City Subscriber at the address first set forth above. City Subscriber will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and City Subscriber are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or City Subscriber may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. Any settlement offer made by you or City Subscriber shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitration hearing shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and City Subscriber submit to the arbitrator, unless you elect to have an in-person hearing or the arbitrator determines an in-person hearing is necessary. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or City Subscriber may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator or AAA rules require otherwise. If the value of the relief sought exceeds $10,000, the right to an in-person hearing will be governed by the AAA rules.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same City Subscriber user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitations on Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be liable. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If you prevail in arbitration, the arbitrator may award you reimbursement of your attorneys’ fees and expenses if you seek such relief. City Subscriber will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If you decide to commence arbitration, and if the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, City Subscriber will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by City Subscriber should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and City Subscriber will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse City Subscriber for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by City Subscriber on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.

If an arbitrator or court decides that any of the provisions with respect to the prohibition of class and representative and private attorney general actions, and non-individualized relief is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of these Terms and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply.
