User Content Usage Rights

By agreeing to these terms, you and Colorado Mountain Club, its successors, assigns, and designees (collectively referred to as “Colorado Mountain Club”, “we”, or “us”) will enter into the following agreement:

You will always own any content and information you post or share that mentions @coloradomountainclub or which you otherwise provide to Colorado Mountain Club (e.g. through social media sites, blogs, emails, or file sharing sites), including, but not limited to your name, likeness, comments, photos, videos, and other media (referred to as “User Content”).

Colorado Mountain Club will collect, store, or use personally identifiable information, such as your name, social media handles, or e-mail address (referred to as “Your Information”), that has been voluntarily submitted to us.

You give Colorado Mountain Club permission to use your User Content as follows: you grant to Colorado Mountain Club a license to reproduce, display, perform, distribute, and otherwise use your User Content in any way that has a connection with the Colorado Mountain Club. We can use your User Content for marketing purposes, including, without limitation, in Colorado Mountain Club websites, email, other customer communications, and in any commercial, personal, digital, print, social, or editorial projects now or any developed in the future.

This User Content license is non-exclusive, meaning you may use your User Content for your own purposes or let others use your User Content for their purposes. You also grant us a license to your User Content with the understanding that we do not owe you anything in connection with our use of your User Content currently or in the future.

Our license is perpetual, meaning that the license you grant us to your User Content lasts for an indefinite period of time, unless a written request for removal is made.

You will indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Colorado Mountain Club, its employees, volunteers, contractors, or other associated parties against any losses, liabilities, claims expenses (including attorney’s fees) arising out of your breach of any representation or warranty as stated above, any third-party claim regarding the use by Colorado Mountain Club of your User Content, or any action taken by you that is inconsistent with the rights identified in these Photo Usage Terms & Conditions.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept or share User Content for any reason. We may remove User Content for any reason. We are under no circumstances required or obligated to use your User Content.

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. Please notify us in writing, by email or mail to the address listed below, if you believe that submitted User Content has infringed your intellectual property rights.
