2. Modifying the Services and Termination.
We may make changes to this Agreement and to our Services from time to time. We may do this for a variety of reasons including to reflect changes in or requirements of the law, new features or enhancements, or changes to remove some features in the business practices. We are always striving to improve our Services and bring you additional functionality that you will find engaging and useful which means we may add new product features from time to time as well. The most recent version of this Agreement will be posted on the Services under Settings and also on OnlyNeighbours.com, and you should regularly check for the most recent version. The most recent version is the version that applies.
If the changes include material changes that affect your rights or obligations, we will notify you in advance of the changes by reasonable means, which could include notification through the Services or via email and if these actions do not materially affect your rights or obligations, we may not provide you with notice before taking them. We may even suspend the Services entirely, in which event we will notify you in advance unless extenuating circumstances, such as safety or security concerns, prevent us from doing so. If you continue to use the Services after the changes become effective, then you agree to the revised Agreement.
You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions in “Settings” in the Service, however you will need to manage your in app purchases through your mobile device platforms (e.g., iTunes, Google Play). Only Neighbours may terminate your account at any time without notice if it believes that you have violated this Agreement. Upon such termination, you will not be entitled to any refund for purchases. After your account is terminated, this Agreement will terminate.
You must be at least 21 years of age to create an account on Only Neighbours and use the Services. By creating an account and using the Services, you represent and warrant that:
You can form a legally binding contract with Only Neighbours, you are not a person who is barred from using the Services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction–meaning that you do not appear on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or face any other similar prohibition, you will comply with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national and international laws, rules and regulations, and you have never been convicted of a felony and that you are not registered as a sex offender with any state, federal or local sex offender registry.
Each person with their family can only have one account per residence, and you may not share your account password with anyone else (even a family member sharing your home) or allow someone else to use your personal Only Neighbours account. You must use your real name, not a pseudonym. If you are under 21 years old, do not use our services or provide any data to us. Convicted sex offenders, including registered sex offenders, and their households are not eligible for Only Neighbours accounts; and we may also deny other account registrations that we think would harm an Only Neighbours community.
3. Your Account.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login credentials you use to sign up for Only Neighbours, and you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under those credentials. If you think someone has gained access to your account, please immediately contact: email@example.com
Only Neighbours offers personal accounts to individual community members (or Families), to help organize meetings with their neighbors within their community. Each account will be non-transferable, and all the member’s information it contains will remain with an associated neighborhood.
Only Neighbours subscribes you to email messages (by default) for your neighborhood and/or community. You can change your preferences, any time here, and customize your Only Neighbours subscriptions here.
Only Neighbours needs each member’s accurate address information. It’s wrong to submit inaccurate registration information, or to register on Only Neighbours if you know you don’t meet our eligibility requirements. Sharing &/or providing false registration information violates Only Neighbours norms and could constitute an illegal act. Only Neighbours will have the discretion to immediately terminate/deactivate accounts with wrong information.
Only Neighbours will always try to enforce it’s eligibility requirements, yet these processes are not always perfect.

If you write a recommendation or other comment about another member or a business (for example, a recommendation of a host), be truthful, fair, kind and neighborly in your comments, and do not post any of their personal information (e.g., address, mobile number, or photos, personal preferences) without their permission. Some members take on a volunteer role as Host for their Community, to help manage their events on Only Neighbours. Hosts are provided with additional account features to use to support their community; they are not Only Neighbours employees, representatives, or agents.
You should not provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account information), or wire or otherwise send money, to other members.
