Applicable Law and Venue

This Terms of Service and any transactions on this Service and the Privacy Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. Except as provided for in the “Dispute Resolution” section seen below, You agree that any action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service shall be only in state or federal court located in New York City (Manhattan) and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

You agree to first try to resolve any dispute informally by contacting us at support@plaaysports.com. We will respond to you by email and attempt to resolve disputes you submit to us. If a dispute you present to us is not resolved within 30 days of the first email submission regarding the dispute, formal proceedings may be initiated according to the following terms.

The parties agree to resolve any claims relating to or arising out of use of the Service, these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, and any other agreement related to the Service through final and binding arbitration, except as provided below. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in New York City (Manhattan) or any other location the parties may agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. We will be responsible for arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. We will not seek our attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous. Either party may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York City (Manhattan). Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing your full name and email address to support@plaaysports.com within 30 days of first accepting these Terms of Service. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, the parties agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York City (Manhattan). The parties agree and consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there as noted in the “Applicable Law and Venue” provision of these Terms of Service, seen immediately above.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

Without limiting the foregoing, and in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), it is PLAAY’s policy to terminate, in appropriate circumstances as determined in our sole discretion, subscribers or account holders who we determine are repeat infringers. If you believe your copyright has been violated by material uploaded by a user of PLAAY, please email us at dmca@plaaysports.com.

If you are a copyright owner or authorized agent and believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or if you believe that your rights have otherwise been violated by the Service, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):

  • an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest or the person whose rights have been violated;
  • a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or the particular rights violated;
  • if applicable, a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Service;
  • your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law or with regard to the rights violated; and
  • a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate.

Our designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement can be contacted at dmca@plaaysports.com or by mail at PLAAY, LLC, 555 Pleasantville Road, Briarcliff Manor, New York 10510, United States. If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled), is not infringing, is subject to the copyright defense of “fair use” pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 107, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your User Content, you may send a counter-notice pursuant to the DMCA containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

  • your physical or electronic signature;
  • identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  • a statement that you have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a mis-identification of the User Content; and
  • your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, PLAAY may, in its sole discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the User Content provider, member or user, the removed User Content may be replaced, or access to it restored.
