We will have the right to collect, share and use your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference in these Terms.


Some areas of the Site may require you to be or become a registered member of the Site. When and if you register to become a member, you agree to (i) provide accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by our registration form (including your email address) and (ii) maintain and update your information (including your email address) to keep it accurate, current and complete. Please read our Privacy Policy, which describes the personally identifiable information we collect, use, disclose, manage and store. You acknowledge that, if any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement and your use of the Site.  We, in our sole absolute discretion, will have the right to refuse to allow you to become a member. Without limitation of the foregoing, we will have the right to check your credit prior to opening your account, and refuse to allow you to become a member if we determine that you are not credit-worthy. For residents of the United States: This site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent or guardian.

You understand that any such information will be treated by Highway 65 Radio in the manner described in our Privacy Policy, and which is hereby incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. You agree that all information that you provide to Highway 65 Radio or such third party provider will be accurate, current and complete.

The Site contains links to other Internet websites, including affiliated websites which may or may not be owned or operated by Highway 65 Radio. Highway 65 Radio has not reviewed all of the websites that are linked to the Site, and Highway 65 Radio has no control over such sites. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, Highway 65 Radio is not responsible for the content of such websites, any updates or changes to such sites, or the privacy or other practices of such sites, and the fact that Highway 65 Radio offers such links does not indicate any approval or endorsement of any material contained on any linked site. Highway 65 Radio is providing these links to you only as a convenience. Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the terms of use and practices of any linked site. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Site or other sites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, defects, date bombs, time bombs and other items of a destructive nature.  You agree that your use of other internet websites and resources including, without limitation, your use of any content, information, data, advertising, products or other materials on or available through such websites and resources, is at your own risk and is subject to the terms and conditions of use applicable to such sites and resources.

Claims of Copyright Infringement

We respect the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask our users to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Highway 65 Radio infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by Highway 65 Radio on one of our Forums), you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Highway 65 Radio to locate the material on the Site; (iv) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (v) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Additionally, if you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by Highway 65 Radio against you, the DMCA permits you to send Highway 65 Radio a counter-notice.  Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

Rules for Sweepstakes, Contests and Games

In addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, any sweepstakes, contests, games or similar promotions (collectively, "Promotions") made available through the Site may be governed by specific rules that are separate from this Agreement. By participating in any such Promotion, you will become subject to those rules, which may vary from the terms and conditions set forth herein. Highway 65 Radio urges you to review any specific rules applicable to a particular Promotion, which will be linked from such Promotion, and to review our Privacy Policy which, in addition to this Agreement, governs any information you submit in connection with such activities. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such rules conflict with this Agreement, the terms and conditions of such rules shall control with respect to the particular Promotion.

Modification, Suspension and Termination

We reserve the right at any time to suspend, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any portion of the Site or the Club with or without cause and with or without prior notice. You will not be entitled to a refund during service outages that are caused by our maintenance on the servers or the technology that underlies Site. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any suspension, modification or discontinuance. Any violation by you of this Agreement may result in corrective action by us, in our sole discretion, including assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of your membership, or termination of this Agreement. In the event that we elect to take any corrective action, you shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior to such corrective action.

Force Majeure

We will not be liable to you or any third party for failure or delay in performing our obligations hereunder if such failure or delay is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, computer viruses, terrorism, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services (including DNS propagation), failure of third party software or hardware or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Site.


You agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Site will be submitted exclusively to confidential binding arbitration in Chicago. IL. Arbitration under these Terms will be conducted under the prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate the intellectual property rights of Highway 65 Radio's management, these persons or entities may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the state of New York, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.


As a convenience to our members, we have occasionally and in our sole discretion provided versions of these Terms in languages other than English (each, a "Translation"). We have attempted to make the Translations accurate, but we cannot be responsible in the event of any errors, inaccuracies or discrepancies in the Translations. Accordingly, if there is any conflict in meaning between a Translation and these Terms, these Terms in the English language shall govern and be given precedence. Furthermore, we do not provide any customer service in any language other than English, and cannot take responsibility for any problems or issues that may arise as a result of this fact.
