Terms of Use

Organization and Structure.
The AroundIndy.com Web site launched on February 1, 2003. AroundIndy.com, LLC is a Domestic Limited Liability Company (LLC) registered with the Indiana Secretary of State on February 26, 2003, and organized in accordance with the laws of the state of Indiana, United States of America. Every effort has been taken to ensure full compliance with Federal, state and local laws and ordinances.

General.
This site is owned and operated by AroundIndy.com, LLC. We have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the site, including, without limitation, the content, hours of availability, and equipment needed for access or use of the site.

Equipment.
You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware and other equipment needed for access to and use of the site and all charges related thereto.

Good Faith.
All information published on this World-Wide Web site is presented in good faith by AroundIndy.com, LLC, and we believe the information was accurate at the time it was published. We will not knowingly or intentionally publish any false or misleading information. We will take every reasonable precaution to ensure that information presented is accurate. However, there are a number of factors such as weather conditions and other unexpected situations that may result in a change in or cancellation of previously announced events (especially outdoor events). Hence, ALWAYS check with the venue to make sure that tickets are available and ticket prices are correct, that the event has not been sold out, canceled, postponed or moved, that the time and/or date has not been changed, etc. Please notify us immediately if you are aware of any inaccurate information in one of our listings.

Use Common Sense.
Before you approach any private residence or individual venue listed herein (for example, garage sales, yard sales, etc.), use your common sense to decide if it is safe to do so. For example, if you arrive at the given address for a yard sale and can see no visual evidence of a yard sale in progress (no merchandise, no people visible, etc.), be suspicious. It is your sole responsibility to determine if any hazards of any kind exist on that property that might make it unsafe for you to visit the property. Some hazards to be aware of include, but are not limited to: property owners with ulterior motives, dangerous animals (such as dogs that bite), dangerous conditions (such as icy driveways or sidewalks, holes, and other hazards), etc. If anything does not look right or "feel" right, it is better for you to leave immediately than to take an unnecessary chance. As stated above, all information published herein is presented in good faith. However, we cannot investigate or inspect each location individually to determine if the event is legitimate, if the neighborhood is safe, or if the activity being conducted is legal and lawful. AroundIndy.com, LLC will not be responsible in the event of any incident that may arise out of your use of any public or private venue listed herein.
