The OVR may, but is not obligated to, monitor or review any areas on the Site where users transmit or post User Content, including but not limited to areas where Services are available, forums, and mailing lists. Other mechanisms should be used for communications that are to be confidential.
The OVR is not liable for any User Content that violates under the laws of copyright, libel, privacy, obscenity, or otherwise, nor is the OVR liable for misuse, loss, modification, or unavailability of any User Content.

Liability for listed events
The Site is a vehicle for advertisement of numerous OVR-sanctioned events, including but not limited to the OVR Juniors' Tournament Schedule, OVR Men's and Women's Tournament Schedule, and Sanctioned Tryouts, and the OVR itself is not a promoter of those events unless explicitly designated as such. For each event, the individual who applied for sanction and to whom said sanction was granted is solely responsible for said event. The OVR disclaims liability for all events for which the OVR is not the promoter.
The Site also serves as a vehicle for advertisement of other volleyball-related ("Non-Sanctioned") events, which are advertised at the sole discretion of the OVR. The OVR disclaims liability for all Non-Sanctioned events.
For the purpose of the Site, an Advertisement is any reference to a commercial interest other than a Club or Team registered within the OVR. All Advertisements on the Site must be negotiated in writing through the OVR. Users are prohibited from posting any Content containing Advertisements that have not first been approved in writing by the OVR. Users are also prohibited from using the mailing lists provided on the Site for distributing any Content containing Advertisements that have not first been approved in writing by the OVR. The OVR maintains sole discretion for determining what constitutes an Advertisement.
The OVR may display Advertisements in context with User Content. Selection and placement of Advertisements is at the OVR's sole discretion.
Local limitations on use
The Site is controlled, operated, and administered by the OVR from its offices within the Ohio Valley Region. The OVR makes no representation that the Site, or the Services or Materials available through it, are appropriate or available for use at other locations, and access to the Site from territories where the Site or any of its Services or Materials are illegal is prohibited. From wherever you access the Site, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws.
The OVR will collect no personal information about you when you visit the Site unless you choose to provide that information. However, various non-personal data, including but without limitation, the Materials and Services you access, your IP address, and your browser and operating system, is collected to assist in assessing Site usage and in optimizing the Site.
If you choose to provide us with personal information, by signing in to your Account, by sending e-mail to the OVR, or through the Site's Services, that information will be used as appropriate, at the sole discretion of the OVR, to deliver the requested Services or to address the need presented.
If you are a member of the OVR, your registration information is displayed on the Site on a limited basis, commensurate with each member's registration type. If you register as a Club Director or Team Representative, your name will appear on the Site with your club's or team's listings, and if you include your phone numbers or e-mail addresses, those will be displayed on the Site. If you register as any other member type, your name will be displayed on the Site in context with your club's or team's roster. If you participate in other capacities, including without limitation, officiating, obtaining certification as an official, junior official, coach, or club director, your name will be displayed in the appropriate context(s) on the Site. For all registration types, additional information is available through the Site on a need-to-know basis, including but not limited to authenticated OVR staff, Tournament Directors, Club Directors (for their own Clubs), and Team Reps (for their own Teams). Because your OVR registration includes a USA Volleyball membership, your registration information will be securely transmitted to USA Volleyball. Your name, postal address, and e-mail address may also be distributed to OVR partners, who are selected, solely by the OVR, for their relevance to the OVR's interests.
The OVR constantly strives to protect each Member's privacy. However, errors may occur in what information is displayed or its content, and the OVR and its directors, employees, and other representatives shall not be liable under any circumstance for any damages arising from display of Member information on the Site.
