Restrictions on content and communications

The OVR reserves the right to delete or remove User Content from the Site and to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or part of this Site, at any time if we have cause to do so (including, without limitation, our good faith belief that you have violated the Terms of Use), without prior notice or liability.

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.

Privacy policy

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.

The Third-Party Services are governed by separate license agreements that accompany such services. The OVR offers no guarantees and assumes no responsibility or liability of any type with respect to the Third-Party Services, including any liability resulting from incompatibility between the Third-Party Services and the Materials and Services offered by the OVR.

The use of the Services and Materials available on the Site is done at your own discretion and risk and with your agreement that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from such activities.

No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from the OVR or through or from the Site, shall create any warranty not expressly stated in the Terms of Use.

Some states and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty may last, so the above limitations may not apply to you. To the extent permissible, any implied warranties are limited to 90 days.

Limitation of Liability

In no event, including without limitation, negligence, shall the OVR, its directors, officers, employees, partners, or suppliers be liable to you or to any third party for any special, punitive, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages of any kind, or any damages whatsoever, including without limitation, those resulting from loss of use, data, or profits, whether or not the OVR has been advised of the possibility of such damages, and on any theory of liability, arising out of or in connection with the use of or the inability to use this Site, its Services, or its Materials, the statements or actions of any User or Third Party on or through the Site, any dealings with other Users or Third Parties, any unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, any information that is sent or received or not sent or received, any loss of data, any Services through the Site that are not available or interrupted, or any web site or Third Party materials or services referenced or linked from the Site.

Some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. Accordingly, the limitations and exclusions set forth above may not apply to you.

Indemnity and liability

You agree to indemnify and hold the OVR, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of content you submit, post to, or transmit through the Site (including, without limitation, any User Content, communications, or computer viruses), your use of the Site, your connection to the Site, your violation of the Terms of Use, or your violation of any rights of another person or entity.


The Terms of Use and other rules, policies, licenses, and disclaimers posted on the Site constitute the entire agreement between the OVR and you with respect to your use of the Site. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Terms of Use, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties as reflected by that provision, and the remainder of the Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect. Any failure by the OVR to enforce or exercise any provision of the Terms of Use or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. The section titles used in the Terms of Use are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect.
