The Devil Strip will refuse ads that we deem exploitative, are sexually explicit or intended to promote goods and services that are illicit or potentially illegal.

Though it isn’t illegal or necessarily illicit to enjoy things in Cleveland or Canton, we are an Akron-first publication and reserve the right to refuse advertisements for businesses, goods, services, art, entertainment or anything else outside of Summit County. Exceptions to that rule are made on a case-by-case basis.
