Girls That Roam (the “Service”), is a website and social network (“Girls That Roam,” “Service,” “we,” or “us”). We welcome your participation in our Service, including our online forums and other portions of the Service that allow the submission of user content. These include article and blog comment threads, discussion forums, message boards, social network and other opportunities that we provide for you to submit, add, transmit, post, or provide written, photographic, audio, video, and other content (collectively, “User Submissions”) to the Service.

These User Submission Guidelines are a part of the Terms of Use Agreement, and by using the Service or providing User Submissions you agree to these rules and the terms of the User Agreement.

In order to keep the Service enjoyable and interesting for all of our users, we ask that you follow the rules outlined below. Failure to follow these rules may result in consequences including (but not limited to) rejection or removal of any User Submission, suspension or revocation of a user’s account or ability to provide content to the Service or any affiliated website, or the prosecution of a criminal or civil action, as appropriate.

You understand that the Service may offer features that allow users to post content on the Service and communicate with others. This content may include text, images, photographs, audio, video, or material in any other form that is stored on, posted on, or transmitted to or through the Service (collectively, “User Submissions”). By posting, uploading, adding, communicating, storing, or otherwise transmitting User Submissions on, to, or through the Service, you understand and agree that you are giving Girls That Roam a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate them in other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes.

By using the Service and by making User Submissions, you represent that you have read and agree to abide by our User Submission Guidelines, which forms a part of this Agreement.

You understand and agree that you are fully responsible for the content that you post. You may not post a User Submission that violates any law, or may otherwise be objectionable or inappropriate. In particular, but without limiting the foregoing, you may not submit, add, transmit, post, or provide content to, on, or through the Service that, in our exclusive judgment:

  1. infringes on the copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property right of any third party;
  2. is false, misleading, libelous, defamatory, slanderous, obscene, racist, abusive, hateful, insulting, homophobic, sexist, sexually explicit/pornographic comments and/or images, or life-threatening messages;

You understand and agree that Girls That Roam is not responsible for any User Submissions. We reserve the right to, but do not have an obligation in our sole discretion, to monitor and/or review, remove, reject, or revise User Submissions at any time, without prior notice. We may remove, reject, or revise content that violates these rules or our User Agreement, is otherwise objectionable, or for any other reason without prior notice. Decisions made by Girls That Roam’s editorial staff with regard to the posting or non-posting of comments, in whole or in part, are final and without appeal.

You understand and agree that User Submissions are neither owned by nor provided by Girls That Roam, and that we are in no way responsible for such User Submissions or any related conduct or practices.

You agree to notify us if you believe that any User Submissions violate these Guidelines or the User Agreement. While we may, from time to time, review User Submissions, we do not undertake to review all such material. If you notice that any User Submissions appear to violate these Guidelines or the User Agreement, or if any other user ever makes you feel harassed or unsafe, please contact us by  and indicate in the “subject” that you are reporting an abuse.

You understand and agree that User Submissions may not contain any commercial material. You may not solicit funds, promote commercial entities or otherwise engage in commercial activity in the content you post, unless such promotion has previously been authorized in writing by Girls That Roam.

You understand that you are not required to disclose personal information, including information about your travel plans or experiences, as a condition of using the Service, and agree not to post personal or sensitive information in public forums. We do not undertake to investigate or confirm the identities or statements of users, and so you should use the same care in disclosing information on the Service as you would in disclosing information about yourself to any person that you do not know. Specifically, you agree not to post personal information or information that could be considered sensitive in a public forum, and to disclose such information privately only if you know the person to whom you are disclosing it. If you choose to make such a private disclosure, you agree to assume all risks associated with that decision. If you ever question whether it is safe to disclose information about yourself of your travel plans, you should not disclose it. Instead, let us know about the situation by using the contact information in Section 3, above.

You understand and agree that you use and/or rely on any information contained in User Submissions at your own risk. Girls That Roam is not in any manner endorsing the content that users post and cannot and will not vouch for its reliability. Girls That Roam also prohibits its users from offering (or claiming to offer) professional advice, and any user that claims to be offering such advice is doing so in violation of our Terms of Use. Instead of relying on the statements of any such person, you should notify us using the contact information listed in Section 3, above.

You understand and agree that for any content that you post, you hereby grant to Girls That Roam the royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate them in other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes.
