  1. SUBMISSIONS.

“Submissions” means all expeditions, tours, comments, feedback, suggestions, photos, e-mail and similar information or materials that you submit to Local Expeditions regarding the services of Local Expeditions. You may have the ability to submit information to our Website, or via email or other means, with the intent that it be posted on our Website.  When you submit anything to us, you give us an unrestricted, nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sub licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, make available, create derivative works from, distribute and display whatever you submit, in any media or format.  The material that you submit becomes part of our Content.  That doesn’t reduce your rights in the material that you submit, but it lets us protect the things you submit, as the terms above discuss.  You retain all copyright ownership in anything that you submit—you are only giving us a license to use it.

Whenever you submit any materials you represent and warrant that:

you have the right to send the materials to us and to grant us the rights listed above;

any comments or information that you submit are accurate and truthful;

you will never submit anything that violates the intellectual property, confidentiality, privacy or other rights of anyone else;

you will never submit “spam” that is intended merely to advertise or promote other products or services;

you will never submit material that contains software viruses or other instructions designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware;

you will never submit material that is (in our sole judgment) offensive, obscene, abusive, defamatory, hateful or otherwise discriminatory, false or misleading, or that incites persons to take illegal action or that is intended to intimidate or harass another person; and

you will never attempt to use another person’s account or personal information or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to any part of our Website.

If you submit a photograph and provide a credit line, we will include that credit line.  But simply adding a credit line does not mean you have permission to let us post the photograph.  Make certain that you have permission from the copyright owner before you submit anything to us.

Some features of our website may require registration.  By registering, you agree that all information you provide about yourself is true, accurate, current and complete.

Some features of our website may require a password.  You are responsible for protecting your password.  You agree that you will be responsible for all statements or activity associated with your account and password.  If you ever believe there has been an unauthorized use of your password, you must notify us immediately.

We have the right, but not the obligation, to review anything that you submit.  We may not post or use materials that you submit, in which case the license that you grant to us above does not apply.  We can terminate your right to access our website at any time, for any reason or no reason, and we can delete any or all of the materials that you have submitted to us, without prior notice to you.

  1. SERVICE AVAILABILITY.

Reference to any product or service on the Website does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available. Local Expeditions manages all or portions of the website from New York, in the United States of America.

  1. MISCELLANEOUS TERMS.

If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by virtue of any law or regulation or by the final determination of a competent court or tribunal, that provision will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions, which shall be modified to give effect to the original intent of the parties. These Terms shall be governed by and construed according to the United Stated Copyright Act and the laws of the State of New York, exclusive of its choice of law provisions. The parties agree that any disputes or proceedings between them concerning the Website or these Terms shall be brought in a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction sitting in New York, New York and the parties hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such court.
