THIS IS A LEGAL CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND TGR THAT GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AS DEFINED BELOW. BY SIGNING UP FOR A TGR COMMUNITY ACCOUNT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE IF AND WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES.
Teton Gravity Research reserves the right to modify this Agreement by (1) posting a revised Agreement on and/or through the Services and (2) providing notice to you that this Agreement has changed through the Services (such as through a notification on your Profile Dashboard or in our mobile applications). Modifications will not apply retroactively. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any modifications to this Agreement. If you do not agree with such modifications, you must stop using the Services.
We may sometimes ask you to review and to explicitly agree to (or reject) a revised version of this Agreement. In such cases, modifications will be effective at the time of your agreement to the modified version of this Agreement. If you do not agree at that time, you are not permitted to use the Services.
In cases where we do not ask for your explicit agreement to a modified version of this Agreement, but otherwise provide notice as set forth above, the modified version of this Agreement will become effective fourteen (14) days after we have posted the modified Agreement and provided you notification of the modifications. Your use of the Services following that period constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified. If you do not agree to the modifications, you are not permitted to use, and should discontinue your use of, the Services.
This Site is provided as an interactive and informational resource.It is provided to you by the owner of this Site (“us” or “we” or “our”), in connection with our partners, service providers (“Service Provider”), sponsors, or other affiliates.
Various company, product, and service names displayed on the Site may be trademarks or service marks owned by others (the “ Third-Party Trademarks ”).Nothing on this Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Third-Party Trademark displayed on this Site.The Third-Party Trademarks may not be used to disparage any applicable third-party, any of their products or services, or in any manner in which, in our or our Service Provider’s reasonable judgment, may damage any goodwill in the Third-Party Trademarks.
The Site contains links to third-party websites (“ External Sites ”).These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by us of the content on such External Sites.The content of such External Sites is developed and provided by others.You should contact the site administrator or webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or any content located on such External Sites.In addition, the Site contains content posted, stored, or displayed at the direction of users of the Site, for which we and our Service Provider cannot accept any responsibility or liability.
The Services change frequently, and their form and functionality may change without prior notice to you. TGR retains the right to create limits on, and related to, the use of the Services in its sole discretion at any time with or without notice. TGR may also impose limits on certain Services or aspects of those Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. TGR may change, suspend, or discontinue any or all of the Services at any time, including the availability of any product, feature, database, or Content. TGR may also terminate or suspend User Accounts at any time, in its sole discretion.
You have to be at least 13 years old to use the Services, and be otherwise legally eligible to use the Services. We're serious: it's a hard rule, based on U.S. federal and state law.
No individual under the age of thirteen (13) may use the Services, provide any personal information to TGR, or otherwise submit personal information through the Services (including, for example, a name, address, telephone number, or email address). If you are under the age of majority in your state or country of residence, you must review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand and agree to the terms of this Agreement. You may only use the Services if you can form a binding contract with TGR and are not legally prohibited from using the Services. By using the Services and therefore accepting the Agreement, you represent that you are eligible to use the Services, as described above.
Notice to Parents and Guardians: By granting your child permission to use the TGR Service, you agree to the terms of this Agreement on behalf of your child. You are responsible for monitoring and supervising your child's use of the TGR Service. If your child is using the TGR Service and is either under 13 or does not have your permission, please contact us immediately so that we can disable his or her access. If you have questions about whether the TGR Service is appropriate for your child, please review our Frequently Asked Questions.
Registration and Account Security: TGR users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
For purposes of this Agreement: (1) the term " Content" means a creative expression and includes, without limitation, video, audio, photographs, images, illustrations, animations, logos, tools, written posts, replies, comments, information, data, text, software, scripts, executable files, graphics, any of which may be generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Services; (2) the term " Subscriber Content" means Content that a Subscriber submits, transfers, or otherwise provides to the Services. Content includes, without limitation, all Subscriber Content.
The Site may now or in the future permit the submission of Content at the direction of users of the Site (“ User Content”) and the hosting, sharing, and/or publishing of such User Content. You understand that whether or not such User Content is published, we and our Service Provider do not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any submissions.
TGR does not claim any ownership rights in your Content. After posting your Content, you continue to retain ownership of your Content, and you continue to have the right to use and license your Content in any way you choose. The Content that you upload to any Social Network needs to comply with the terms of this Agreement. At any point, you can take your Content from your account and cancel your Account and TGR does not retain any license rights except as provided below.
In addition to the foregoing licenses, you hereby grant to us a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Content in connection with other websites that make use of services provided by us.
In connection with User Content, an upload, post or transmit (collectively, “submit”) and video, image, text, audio recording, or other work (collectively, “content”) you agree you will not:
We do not endorse any User Content or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and we expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with any User Content. We do not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on this Site, and we will remove all Content and User Content if we are properly notified in writing that such Content or User Content infringes on another's intellectual property rights.
TGR respects the intellectual property rights of others.If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any User Content or other Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing at email@example.com.(see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
1.A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
2.Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
3.Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the Service Provider to locate the material;
4.Information reasonably sufficient to permit the Service Provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
5.A statement that you have 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
6.A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, TGR may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at TGR's sole discretion.
While TGR regularly posts content under its "Teton Gravity Research" account, all community members are welcome to submit their own content, which will undergo editorial review. We generally ask that content is:
Our editors review all submitted content on a daily and weekly basis. Content pieces that fail to adhere to these standards or are otherwise advertorial, misrepresentative, unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive or encouraging thereof will likely face rejection. Content pieces that meet or come close to meeting these standards will undergo further review by our editors, who may alter them or their meta information so that they fall within the above guidelines. Please see our Community Guidelines for more information.
Content pieces that adhere to the above guidelines and contain particularly substantive and quality content may be featured on TetonGravity.com and throughout the site as "Featured Content" items. "Featured Content" items broadly encompass any combination of videos, blogs, reviews and photos that relate to the ski and snowboard world.
For questions or concerns regarding our editorial process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You agree that you won't violate TGR’s Community Guidelines.
On termination of your Account, or upon your deletion of particular pieces of User or Subscriber Content from the Services, TGR shall make reasonable efforts to make such User or Subscriber Content inaccessible and cease use of it; however, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) removed User or Subscriber Content may persist in caches or backups for a reasonable period of time and (b) copies of or references to the User or Subscriber Content may not be entirely removed (due to the nature of re-posting, for example).
As a condition to using certain of the Services, you may be required to create an account (an " Account") and select a password and TGR username.
You agree to provide TGR with accurate, complete, and updated registration information, particularly your email address.
It's really important that the email address associated with your TGR Account is accurate and up-to-date. If you ever forget your password - or worse, fall victim to a malicious phishing attack - a working email address is often the only way for us to recover your Account.
You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account password and for the security of your Account, and you will notify TGR immediately of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of your Account or Account password.

TGR may terminate or suspend your access to or ability to use any and all Services immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason or no reason, including but not limited to if you breach any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement.

Termination of your access to and use of the Services shall not relieve you of any obligations arising or accruing prior to such termination or limit any liability that you otherwise may have to TGR or any third party.

TGR’s servers and operations are, however, located in the United States, and TGR’s policies and procedures are based on United States law.
