  1. a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, including its location, with sufficient detail so as to permit PRCA to find and verify its existence;
  2. your contact information, including name, address, telephone number, and email address;
  3. a statement that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is infringing or is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by law;

  5. an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest.
  6. Please consult your legal counsel for further details or see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3). Submissions of copyright infringement notifications may be sent to PRCA at webmaster@prorodeo.com.
    1. Termination

PRCA reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse, suspend, or terminate your access to the Website, or any portion thereof, without notice and for any or no reason. You acknowledge that PRCA has the right to suspend or terminate your access to all or part of the Website without prior notice:

    1. at the request of law enforcement or other government agencies;
    2. if the Website is discontinued or materially modified;
    3. upon the occurrence of any technical or security issues or problems;
    4. if you engage in any conduct that PRCA believes in its sole discretion violates any provision of the Terms of Use or other incorporated agreements or guidelines or violates the rights of PRCA or third parties;
    5. upon any breach by you of the Terms of Use; or
    6. for any other good cause as determined by PRCA.
  1. In addition, PRCA may terminate individual user accounts due to inactivity. You agree that upon termination PRCA may delete all information related to your account.
    1. Miscellaneous.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be invalid, unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and such provision shall be replaced with a valid provision that comes closest to reflecting the intent of such removed provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use shall continue to be valid and enforceable.

These Terms of Use represent the entire agreement between you and PRCA relating to your right to access and use this Website, and supersede any and all prior or written or oral agreements between you and PRCA with respect to such subject matter.

No waiver by PRCA of any breach or default by you under these Terms of Use shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

You may not assign these Terms of Use or any rights or obligations herein without the prior written consent of PRCA and any attempted assignment in contravention of this provision is null and void and of no force or effect.  PRCA has the right to assign these Terms of Use, and any of its rights or obligations herein. These Terms of Use are binding upon each party and its respective successors, heirs, trustees, administrators, executors, and permitted assigns.

These Terms of Use are governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of New York, as applicable, without giving effect to their principles of conflicts of law. By using the Website, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other states, countries, territories, or jurisdictions.

With respect to any and all disputes arising out of or in connection with the Website or these Terms of Use, PRCA and you agree [to negotiate in good faith and undertake reasonable efforts to cooperate with one another in order to achieve a mutually satisfactory resolution.  If you and PRCA do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation, any other effort] to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration as described in this section.  You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury.  Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.  Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator's award.

Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor PRCA will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.

PRCA and you agree that all disputes arising under these Terms of Use that cannot be settled through informal negotiation will be settled exclusively through confidential binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial rules of arbitration of the American Arbitration Association in New York. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that PRCA may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in New York, necessary to protect its rights or property pending the completion of arbitration.

Any claims not subject to arbitration shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of state or federal courts in New York County, New York.

To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under these Terms of Use must be filed within one year in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the claim or notice of dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred.

PRCA makes no claims regarding use of the Website or access to the content outside of the United States. If you access the Website or the content from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction
