Property Substitutions Each listing, or advertisement may only relate to a specific property or unit number.

No Advertising More than One Property on One Listing or Advertisement.

Each listing or advertisement on the Site displays an individual and uniquely identified property available for short-term rental. Only one property can appear on each advertisement unless it is a property with multiple rental units on the same site and additional advertising units are purchased. The listing specifically cannot be a broad example of properties in each area. Snowbird Beaches LLC reserves the right to amend the copy or remove any advertisement when more than one property is described in such listing or advertisement, and may choose, in our sole discretion to retain any fees associated with the initial term of such non-conforming listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.

Service of process in any such action may be affected either by certified mail, return receipt requested or by recognized national private carrier where you or your authorized agent accepts delivery of such service of process.
