Welcome to SaddleBook!
We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you enjoy everything SaddleBook has to offer.
Please read these Terms carefully because they are a binding agreement between You and SaddleBook, LLC (“SaddleBook” or “We”).
These Terms govern your use of the websites that link to these Terms. In these Terms, the word “Sites” refers to each of these websites and the services offered on those Sites. You automatically agree to these Terms and to our Privacy Statement simply by using or logging into the Sites.
Please note that we offer multiple services. Your use of SaddleBook products or services may be pursuant to a separate manually or digitally-executed agreement. Those additional terms become part of your agreement with us, if you use the services or log into the Sites.
A. Your Accounts
You may be required to create an account and specify a password in order to use services or features on the Sites. To create an account, you must be at least 13 years old and you must provide truthful and accurate information about yourself. Don’t try to impersonate anyone else when you create your account. If your information changes at any time, please update your account to reflect those changes.
In some cases, you may be invited to SaddleBook by an affiliate or SaddleBook community partner such as an event producer or a trainer. If you grant them permission, your affiliate may be able to access or modify your account without our involvement.
You may not share your account with anyone else. Please keep your password confidential, and try not to use it on other websites. If you believe that your account has been compromised at any time, please notify our system administrator.
B. SaddleBook Community
When you register to participate in an event or competition with a member of our SaddleBook community partners, the personal information you provide (such as your name, horses names, contact information, photos, etc) that may be collected during the course of registering for events through SaddleBook will be shared or used by these community partners. Your name and photo may be displayed on the registration, status, scoring and result pages for events in which you participate.
You acknowledge and agree that your registration and participation in these events are public. Further your performance in these events may be seen and used by others.
C. Modifications and Termination
We reserve the right to modify our Sites at any time, with or without notice to you. For example, we may add or remove functionality or features, and we may suspend or stop a particular feature altogether. We also reserve the right to charge a fee for any of our features at any time. If you don’t like any changes, you can stop using our Sites at any time.
D. Content You Post
We may provide opportunities for you to share information with us about activities you are registering for and participating in, post text, photographs, videos, or other content (collectively, “Content”) on the Sites. You can only post Content if you own all the rights to that Content, or if another rights holder has given you permission. Others may post Content on our site related to you, your horse and your activities. Some of this Content may relate to performances at various events and venues. To the extent that you have rights to this Content, the provisions of this section also apply.
You do not transfer ownership of your Content simply by sharing it with us or by it being posted. However, by this Content being shared or posted, you grant us, our agents, licensees, and assigns an irrevocable, perpetual (non-exclusive) royalty free right and permission to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use your Content. Without those rights, we couldn’t offer our Services. Please note that this right and license continues even if you stop using our Sites.
You agree to indemnify, release, and hold us harmless from any all liability, claims, actions, loss, harm, damage, injury, cost or expense arising out of any Content you share with us or post.
Keep in mind that if you send us any information, ideas, suggestions, or other communications to us, those communications will not be confidential. Moreover, unless we tell you otherwise, we reserve the right to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such communications without any obligation to you.
E. Content Posted by Others
We are not responsible for, and do not endorse, Content posted by any other person. Accordingly, we may not be held liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused to you in connection with any Content posted by another user.
F. Your Use of the Sites
Your use of the Sites is for your personal, non-commercial use and you must not use it in any other way without our consent. Please do not use the Sites in a way that violates any laws, infringes on anyone’s rights, is offensive, or interferes with the Sites or any features on the Sites (including any technological measures we employ to enforce these Terms).
It should be common sense, so we won’t list the things you shouldn’t do. But if we (in our sole discretion) determine that you have acted inappropriately, we reserve the right to take down Content, terminate your account, prohibit you from using the Sites, and take appropriate legal actions.
Using our Site does not give you ownership of intellectual property rights to the content you access. You may not use content from our Sites unless you obtain permission from us or its owner, or unless you are otherwise permitted by law.
When you use a Site or send communications to us through a Site, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive electronically any communications related to your use of a Site. We may communicate with you by email, by text or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that are provided to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. All notices from us intended for receipt by you shall be deemed delivered and effective when sent to the email address you provide to us. Please note that by submitting Content, creating a user account or otherwise providing us with your email address, postal address or phone number, you are agreeing that we or our agents may contact you at that address or number in a manner consistent with our Privacy Statement.
G. Intellectual Property
If you believe any Content on the Services infringes your copyrights, you may request that we remove the Content from the Services (or disable access to that Content). Be aware that we have no control over Content that may have been previously shared or published in other locations.
H. Social Networks
The Service may include features that operate in conjunction with certain third party social networking websites that you visit such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo, and Twitter (“Social Network Features”). While your use of the Social Network Features is governed by these Terms, your access and use of third party social networking sites and the services provided through the Services is governed by the terms of service and other agreements posted on these sites. You are responsible for ensuring that your use of those sites complies with any applicable terms of service or other agreements.
I. Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of care and promise to do our best to make sure you enjoy the Services. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, NEITHER SADDLEBOOK, LLC NOR ITS AGENTS OR SERVICE PROVIDERS (THE “SERVICES ENTITIES”) MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SITES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SITES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTION OF THE SITES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SITES “AS IS”.
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.
J. Liability for our Services
Some of the services offered on our Sites may allow you to participate in or register for events or competitions with horses and other animals that are offered or produced by others. Participating in these events and competitions may involve risk of injury.
WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY ACTIVITIES UNDERTAKEN ON THE SITES OR AS A RESULT OF YOUR REGISTRATION FOR OR PARTICIPATION IN THESE EVENTS.
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED, THE SADDLEBOOK ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SITES, REGISTRATION OR PARTICIPATION IN EVENTS OR ANY THIRD PARTY’S USE OF THE SITES. THESE EXCLUSIONS INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR INJURY, LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, COMPUTER FAILURE, OR THE VIOLATION OF YOUR RIGHTS BY ANY THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF THE SERVICES ENTITIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED.
L. Additional Details
We may modify these Terms at any time so be sure to check back regularly. By continuing to use or log in to our Site after these Terms have changed, you indicate your agreement to the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the changes, you should stop using or logging in to the Sites.
The Sites may contain links to third-party websites. That doesn’t mean that we control or endorse those websites, or any goods or services sold on those websites. Similarly, the Sites may contain ads from third-parties. We do not control or endorse any products being advertised.
If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean we are OK with what you did, or we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. You expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or dispute under these Terms and or your use of the Services resides in the courts located in San Luis Obispo, California, and you further expressly agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action. If it turns out that a particular provision in these Terms is not enforceable, that will not affect any other provision.
