The Services may change and evolve, and their form and functionality may change without prior notice to you. OurLeagues, LLC retains the right to create limits on and related to use of the Services in its sole discretion at any time with or without notice. OurLeagues, LLC may also impose limits on certain Services or aspects of those Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. OurLeagues, LLC may change, suspend, or discontinue any or all of the Services at any time, including the availability of any product, feature, database, or Content (as defined below). OurLeagues, LLC may also terminate or suspend Accounts (as defined below) at any time, in its sole discretion.

Your Account

You may not use the Services, provide any personal information to OurLeagues, LLC, or otherwise submit personal information through the Services (including, for example, a name, address, telephone number, or email address) if you are under the Minimum Age. The Minimum Age is (i) thirteen (13), or (ii) for users in the European Union, sixteen (16) (or the lower age that your country has provided for you to consent to the processing of your personal data) . You may only use the Services if you can form a binding contract with OurLeagues, LLC and are not legally prohibited from using the Services.

As a condition to using certain of the Services and in order for us to provide them to you, you may be required to create an account (an " Account"), provide your age and an email address and select a password and OurLeagues.com username, which will serve as a default link to your default OurLeagues.com homepage.

You agree to provide OurLeagues.com with accurate, complete, and updated registration information, particularly your email address.

It is very important that the email address associated with your OurLeagues.com account is accurate and up-to-date since a working email address is often the only way for us to identify or recover your account.

You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account password and for the security of your Account, and you will notify OurLeagues.com immediately of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of your Account or Account password.

Your Privacy

For information about how OurLeagues, LLC collects, uses, and shares your information, please review our Privacy Policy. By using the Services you agree you have read the Privacy Policy, which describes our collection, use, and sharing (as set forth in the Privacy Policy) of such information, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing, and use by OurLeagues, LLC and the OurLeagues, LLC Affiliates (as defined below).

Site/Services Content

Definitions:

For purposes of this Agreement:

  • (1) the term "Content" means a creative expression and includes, without limitation, video, audio, photographs, images, illustrations, animations, logos, tools, written articles and notices, comments, information, data, text, software, scripts, executable files, graphics, and interactive features, any of which may be generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Services;
  • (2) the term "Subscriber Content" means Content that a Subscriber submits, transfers, or otherwise provides to the Services. Content includes, without limitation, all Subscriber Content.

Your Rights in Subscriber Content:

Subscribers retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in Subscriber Content, and OurLeagues, LLC and/or third parties retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in all Content other than Subscriber Content.

You retain ownership you have of any intellectual property you upload to OurLeagues, LLC.

Your Responsibilities in Subscriber Content:

Subscribers shall not submit/upload any content to which there would be a copyright infringement of another’s works. Also, Subscribers shall not upload pornographic or offensive, abusive, or bullying materials (text, images, and/or video). OurLeagues, LLC wants to maintain the Services as a family-friendly community where subscribers can participate without concern for an offensive or abusive experience.

Subscriber Content License to OurLeagues, LLC:

When you provide Subscriber Content to OurLeagues, LLC through the Services, you grant OurLeagues, LLC a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including, without limitation, in order to conform it to the requirements of any networks, devices, services, or media through which the Services are available). The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purposes of allowing OurLeagues, LLC to operate the Services in accordance with their functionality, improve and promote the Services, and develop new Services.

When you upload your creations to OurLeagues, LLC, you’re giving us permission to make them available in all the ways you would expect us to (for example, via your league and team pages, RSS, the OurLeagues.com user dashboard, etc.). We never want to do anything with your work that surprises you.

You also agree that this license includes the right for OurLeagues, LLC to make all publicly-posted Content available to third parties selected by OurLeagues, LLC, so that those third parties can syndicate and/or analyze such Content on other media and services.

An example of what it means to "make all publicly-posted Content available" to a OurLeagues, LLC partner for distribution or analysis would be licensing the OurLeagues.com feed of all public activity on OurLeagues.com, to partners such as search engines.

One thing you should consider before posting: When you make something available on the Internet, it becomes practically impossible to take down all copies of it.

You also agree that you will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent and warrant that you have all of the necessary rights to grant us this license for all Subscriber Content you transfer to us.

OurLeagues, LLC has adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement on the Services in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "DMCA").

  4. The following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled."

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, OurLeagues, LLC will forward it to Notifying Party who submitted the original DMCA notification. The original Notifying Party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If OurLeagues, LLC does not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to the Services.

Exclusions to Warranties and Limitation of Liability

Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion/limitation of liability as set forth in Section 14, so the limitations above may not apply to you.

Special Provisions for Subscribers Located Outside of the United States

OurLeagues, LLC provides products and services and enables a global community for individuals to share and follow the things they love. OurLeagues, LLC's servers and operations are, however, located in the United States, and OurLeagues, LLC's policies and procedures are based on United States law. As such, the following provisions apply specifically to Subscribers located outside of the United States: (1) you acknowledge that we will transfer, store, and process your information, including but not limited to Subscriber Content and any personal information, in the United States and/or other countries in order to provide you with the Services and perform this Agreement; and (2) if you are using the Services from a country embargoed by the United States, or are on the United States Treasury Department's list of "Specially Designated Nationals," you agree that you will not engage in financial transactions, or conduct any commercial activities using or through the Services.

Choice of Law and Venue

You and OurLeagues, LLC agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or the Services in accordance with this Section or as you and OurLeagues, LLC otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to formal dispute resolution, we strongly encourage you to contact us to seek a resolution.

Law and Forum for Legal Disputes:

This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Kentucky as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Kentucky between Kentucky residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against OurLeagues, LLC must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Daviess County, Kentucky, except as otherwise agreed by the parties. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Daviess County, Kentucky for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

If you are (a) a United States federal, state, or local government agency or body, (b) using the Services in your official capacity, and (c) legally unable to accept the clauses in this Section, then this Section doesn’t apply to you. For such entities, this Agreement and any related action will be governed by the laws of the United States of America, without regard to conflict of law provisions, and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Kentucky, excluding choice of law.

Modifications to This Agreement

This Agreement, as modified from time to time, constitutes the entire agreement between you and OurLeagues, LLC with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding the subject matter hereof and constitutes the entire and exclusive agreement between the parties. The failure of either party to exercise, in any way, any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain enforceable and in full force and effect. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with OurLeagues, LLC's prior written consent. OurLeagues, LLC may assign this Agreement in whole or in part at any time without your consent. No agency, partnership, joint controllership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind OurLeagues, LLC in any respect whatsoever. Any notice to OurLeagues, LLC that is required or permitted by this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed effective upon receipt, when delivered in person by nationally recognized overnight courier or mailed by first class, registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to

OurLeagues, LLC reserves the right to modify this agreement at any time and at its sole discretion. We will post the revised agreement through the service and provide notice to subscribers either through the service itself or via email communications.

It is your responsibility to review the modifications to the agreement and your continued use of the services after the modified agreement has been posted constitutes your acceptance of the modified agreement.

Termination

Termination of this agreement can occur at any time and can be initiated by either party by notifying the other party. OurLeagues, LLC reserves the right to terminate or suspend access to your account at our discretion and without prior notice or liability, for any or no reason. Examples of what could cause OurLeagues to do so would be the repeated infringement of others' copyrights, uploading of pornographic or offensive materials (text, images, and/or video), abuse or bullying of other members, etc.

If your account is terminated or suspended, your access to the use of the service and your provided content will immediately be revoked.

On termination of your Account, or upon your deletion of particular pieces of Subscriber Content from the Services, OurLeagues, LLC shall make reasonable efforts to make such Subscriber Content inaccessible and cease use of it and, if required by the applicable Privacy Policy, delete your Account data and/or Subscriber Content unless permitted or required to keep this data in accordance with law; however, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) deleted Subscriber Content may persist in caches or backups for a reasonable period of time and (b) copies of or references to the Subscriber Content may not be entirely removed (due to the nature of copying or sharing, for example).
