By using our Services, you acknowledge that we may collect, use and disclose your personal information and aggregated and/or anonymized data as set forth in our Privacy Policy, and you acknowledge that you may have your personal information collected in, used in, transferred to, and proceed in the United States. If your use of the Services requires us to process any personal data of personal information within your Content, as these terms are in and in accordance with applicable privacy laws or regulations, we will do so at all times in accordance with our Privacy Policy.


To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Horse Spot, and our respective past, present and future employees, officers, directors, contractors, consultants, equity holders, suppliers, vendors, service providers, parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, predecessors, successors and assigns (individually and collectively, the “Gainful Parties”), from and against all actual or alleged Horse Spot or third party claims, damages, awards, judgments, losses, liabilities, obligations, penalties, interest, fees, expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and expenses) and costs (including, without limitation, court costs, costs of settlement and costs of pursuing indemnification and insurance), of every kind and nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, matured or unmatured, or suspected or unsuspected, in law or equity, whether in tort, contract or otherwise (collectively, “Claims”), including, but not limited to, damages to property or personal injury, that are caused by, arise out of or are related to (a) your use or misuse of the platform, site, content, or products, (b) any User Content you create, post, share or store on or through the Sites or our pages or feeds on third party social media platforms, (c) any Feedback you provide, (d) your violation of these Terms, (e) your violation of the rights of another, and (f) any third party’s use or misuse of the Sites or Products provided to you. You agree to promptly notify Horse Spot of any third-party Claims and cooperate with Horse Spot in defending such Claims. You further agree that Horse Spot shall have control of the defense or settlement of any third-party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Horse Spot.


You are solely responsible for your conduct on Horse Spot’s platform, site, and other associated properties. Horse Spot reserves the right to change any and all Content and to modify, suspend, or terminate access to the platform and site (or any features and functionality of the same). Reference to any products, services, processes, or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, vendor, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof, or any affiliation with, Horse Spot. Some jurisdictions prohibit the disclaimer of implied terms in contracts with consumers; in such cases, some, or all of the disclaimers in this section may not apply to you.

Limitation or Liability; Release

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Horse Spot or any of the other Horse Spot parties be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages of any kind (including, but not limited to, loss of revenue, income or profits, loss of use or data, loss or diminution in value of assets or securities, or damages for business interruption) arising out of or in any way related to the access or use of the sites or platform  or the order, receipt or use of any service or product (including, but not limited to, any damages caused by or resulting from reliance by any user on any information obtained from Horse Spot, or from mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletions of files or emails, errors, defects, bugs, viruses, Trojan Horses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of God, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to Horse Spot records, programs or systems), regardless of the form of action, whether based in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, simple negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), strict product liability or any other legal or equitable theory (even if the party has been advised of the possibility of such damages and regardless of whether such damages were foreseeable). To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the maximum aggregate liability of Horse Spot and the other Horse Spot parties (jointly) arising out of or in any way related to (a) the order, receipt or use of services or products purchased from Horse Spot exceed the amount paid for such products; and (b) the order, receipt or use of product, or access or use of the sites or content, exceed the greater of $250 or the amount you paid to us in the one (1) month period immediately preceding the date on which your claim arose. The foregoing limitations shall apply even in the event your remedies hereunder fail of their essential purpose, and the foregoing shall constitute Horse Spot and the other gainful parties’ sole liability and obligation in respect hereof, regardless of the form of action, whether based in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, simple negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), strict product liability or any other legal or equitable theory. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you, on behalf of your heirs, executors, administrators, legal and personal representatives, hereby release, waive, acquit and forever discharge Horse Spot and the other Horse Spot parties from and against, and covenant not to sue any such Horse Spot party for, all claims you have or may have arising out of or in any way related to these terms. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive your rights under California civil code 1542, which states “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” Access to Horse Spot and/or any other content, information, products and/or services offered by and/or through the same would not be provided to you without such limitations. Some jurisdictions prohibit the disclaimer of implied terms in contracts with consumers; in such cases, some or all of the disclaimers in this section may not apply to you.

Modifications to the Sites

Horse Spot reserves the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the platform and site (or any features or parts thereof) at any time and without liability thereafter. Horse Spot reserves the right to withdraw or amend its services, and any service or material Horse Spot provides, in its sole discretion without notice. Horse Spot will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the platform or site is unavailable at any time or for any period.

You are responsible for both:
  • Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Platform; and
  • Ensuring that all persons who access the Platform through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and comply with them.
Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

Most concerns can be resolved quickly and satisfactorily by emailing us at support@horsespot.net. In the event that we cannot resolve a dispute, we each agree that any and all disputes, controversies, or claims arising under, out of, or related to this agreement or the contractual relationship established by it (whether in contract, tort, or any other statute, regulation, ordinance, or other source of law) will be resolved on an individual basis through binding arbitration. You and Horse Spot each expressly waive any right to trial by jury and the right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration. Neither you nor Horse Spot shall be permitted or entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against others, or arbitrate or otherwise participate in any claims as a class member, class representative, or in any other representative capacity. The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and will take place in the county or parish in which you reside, or another mutually agreeable location, in the English language. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including (but not limited to) issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate and the arbitrability of any dispute between you and Horse Spot. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. At your request, hearings may be conducted in person or by telephone, and the arbitrator may provide for submitting and determining motions on briefs, with or without oral hearings. Horse Spot agrees that, upon request, it will pay a consumer’s filing fee for the arbitration. For the benefit of the parties, all aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including (but not limited to) the transcripts of the hearing, the transcript of any deposition, and all documents produced or used during the arbitration proceeding, will be strictly confidential. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. If a court decides that any provision of this paragraph is invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be severed and the other parts of this paragraph (and the remainder of these terms) will continue to apply, but in no case shall either you or Horse Spot be permitted to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration.


Horse Spot may use subcontractors or other third parties to perform its obligations under these Terms, but Horse Spot will remain responsible for all such obligations.

Further Assurances

You agree to execute and deliver any documents or instruments and take any further actions that are reasonably required, to provide the other party the full benefits and rights described in these Terms.


You may not assign these Terms or delegate your performance without Horse Spot’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so is void. Horse Spot may assign or transfer these Terms without your consent. These Terms are binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ permitted successors and assigns.


If any provisions of these Terms or portion of a provision is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of these Terms will remain in effect.

No Waiver

Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under these Terms.

Force Majeure

Horse Spot will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform under these Terms as a result of any cause or condition beyond Horse Spots reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”), so long as Horse Spot uses reasonable efforts to avoid or remove those causes of delay or non-performance.


The Company may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without notice, for any reason.

Relationship of the Parties

Nothing contained in this Agreement or your use of the Platform or Services shall be construed to constitute either party as a partner, joint venturer, employee, or agent of the other party, nor shall either party hold itself out as such. Neither party has any right or authority to incur, assume or create, in writing or otherwise, any warranty, liability or other obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the name of or on behalf of the other party, it being intended by both parties that each shall remain independent contractors responsible for its own actions.

Entire Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and the Company and governs the terms and conditions of your use of the Platform and Services, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and the Company with respect to this Platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may also be subject to additional terms and conditions, posted policies (including but not limited to the Privacy Policy), guidelines, or rules that may apply when you use the Platform. The Company may revise these Terms and Conditions of Use at any time by updating this Agreement and posting it on the Platform. Accordingly, you should visit the Platform and review the Terms and Conditions of Use periodically to determine if any changes have been made. Your continued use of this Platform after any changes have been made to the Terms and Conditions of Use signifies and confirms your acceptance of any such changes or amendments to the Terms and Conditions of Use.
