FAIR HOUSING / EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY

Progress is an Equal Housing Opportunity company, which means Progress (as well as all of our affiliated entities and employees) complies with the Fair Housing Act and other applicable federal, state and local anti-housing discrimination laws. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and the presence of children. Progress also operates in states and local jurisdictions, which have additional fair housing laws and added protected classes. Progress also complies with those laws and regulations. As such, all rental properties identified in this Site are subject to the Fair Housing Act and its state law counterparts. Progress will not knowingly permit or allow any discriminatory conduct in the rental of its properties that violates applicable law. Complaints concerning discriminatory practices in housing may be filed with the local office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Any claim or dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or the Services will be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy or claim must be arbitrated on an individual basis and must not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration must be conducted in Maricopa County, Arizona, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof. Either Progress or you may by motion seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Maricopa County, Arizona, as necessary to protect the rights or property of the moving party.

These Terms of Service are governed by the laws of the State of Arizona without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
