OWNERSHIP OF THE SITE AND ITS CONTENTS

THE LEGAL JARGON: The Site is owned by Global Lanes, LLC. Unless otherwise indicated, all of the content featured or displayed on the Site, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, photographic images, moving images, sound, illustrations, software, and the selection and arrangement thereof ("Global Lanes Content"), is owned by Global Lanes, its licensors, or its third-party image partners. All elements of the Site, including the Global Lanes Content, are protected by copyright, trade dress, moral rights, trademark and other laws relating to the protection of intellectual property.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: We are passionate about our content, and so we put a lot of thought and effort into setting up our company and securing protection for our name, photos, etc.  Everything on the site is owned by us and we would be very sad if you decided to steal our stuff.  You don’t want to make us sad do you?

 

USE OF THE SITE

THE LEGAL JARGON: The Site and the Global Lanes Content are intended for Site visitors and customers of Global Lanes. You may not use the Site or the Global Lanes Content for any purpose other than to view our Site or conduct business with Global Lanes. You are specifically prohibited from: (a) downloading, copying, or re-transmitting any or all of the Site or the Global Lanes Content without, or in violation of, a written license or agreement with Global Lanes; (b) using any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; (c) manipulating or otherwise displaying the Site or the Global Lanes Content by using framing or similar navigational technology; (d) registering, subscribing, unsubscribing, or attempting to register, subscribe, or unsubscribe any party for any Global Lanes product or service if you are not expressly authorized by such party to do so; (e) reverse engineering, altering or modifying any part of the Site or the Global Lanes Content; (f) circumventing, disabling or otherwise interfering with security-related features of the Site or any system resources, services or networks connected to or accessible through the Site; (g) selling, licensing, leasing, or in any way commercializing the Site or the Global Lanes Content without specific written authorization from Global Lanes; and (h) using the Site or the Global Lanes Content other than for its intended purpose. Such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws including without limitation copyright and trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and applicable communications regulations and statutes. You represent and warrant that you will comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, those relating to intellectual property rights, the Internet, data, e-mail, privacy, and the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: While we are excited to have you viewing our site, please do not use anything that you see on our site for any of your own projects without talking to us first.  Yes, buying the image qualifies as talking to us first, but even then, please don’t use or sell our works without our express permission.  We work very hard to bring you these images and would appreciate your help maintaining their proper use.   Remember that part about stealing from us and making us sad? That applies here too.

 

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT POLICY

THE LEGAL JARGON: In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable laws, Global Lanes has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Global Lanes’ sole discretion, account holders who infringe the intellectual property rights of Global Lanes or any third party.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: A collection of laws exist that allow internet users to post things to certain websites, and keep the websites from liability for the things posted to their sites if they perform certain tasks. 

 

COPYRIGHT COMPLIANTS

THE LEGAL JARGON: If you believe that any material on the Site infringes upon any copyright that you own or control, you may file a notification of such infringement with our Designated Agent as set forth below:

Copyright Agent:

Kathryn Lane
P.O. Box 2452, Estes Park, CO 80517
(314) 753-6211
E-mail: contact.globallanes@gmail.com

Upon receipt of such notification, we will make reasonable efforts to investigate the claim, and reserve the right to take down or terminate access to the allegedly infringing material. If the notification relates to a third party work, Global Lanes will provide a copy of the notification to that third party. If Global Lanes receives a DMCA counter-notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 14 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs Global Lanes of this action. Global Lanes sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: Part of those above mentioned tasks include a “notice and takedown” procedure.  This is the information that you will need to follow to send the notice portion of the “notice and takedown” procedure. We do the takedown.

If someone files a counter notice, as is permitted by the law, we’ll put the content back up in two weeks unless you tell us you’re seeking a court order. We’ll send you a copy of the counter notice.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: We’re really proud of our name, and it’s important to us.  So much so that we ask that you do not use our name or logo for any reason without talking to us first.

 

FORUMS AND OTHER INTERACTIVE AREAS OR SERVICES ON THE SITE

THE LEGAL JARGON: The Site may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on the Site ("Interactive Areas").

By using any Interactive Areas, you agree not to post, upload, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish through the Site any of the following:

Any message, comment, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code or other material ("User Content") that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, harmful to minors, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable;

h. User Content that, in the sole judgment of Global Lanes, is objectionable or which restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Interactive Areas or the Site, or which adversely affects the availability of its resources to other users (e.g., excessive shouting, use of all capital letters, or flooding continuous posting of repetitive text), or which may expose Global Lanes or its users to any harm or liability of any type.

Global Lanes takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is Global Lanes liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter. Your use of Interactive Areas is at your own risk. As a provider of interactive services, Global Lanes is not liable for any statements, representations or User Content provided by its users in any public forum, personal home page or other Interactive Area. Although Global Lanes has no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the User Content posted in any Interactive Area, Global Lanes reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen or edit any User Content posted or stored on the Site at any time and for any reason without notice. You are solely responsible for creating backup copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Site at your sole cost and expense. Any use of the Interactive Areas or other portions of the Site in violation of the foregoing violates these Site Terms and may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Site. You acknowledge and agree that Global Lanes may access, use or disclose any information about you or your use of this Site, including without limitation any User Content to comply with the law or any legal process; protect and defend the rights or property of Global Lanes; or to protect the safety of our company, employees, customers or the public. If you post User Content to the Site, unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Global Lanes and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Content throughout the world in any media. You grant Global Lanes and its affiliates and sublicensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such content, if they choose. You represent and warrant that (a) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or you otherwise have the right to post such User Content to the Site; (b) the User Content is accurate and not misleading; and (c) use and posting of the User Content you supply does not violate these Site Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: There are certain parts of our Site that allow you to post items to our Site.  We ask that you do not post anything illegal, which could include things owned by other people, or anything that could be harmful to our users or our site.  We also ask that you do not alter the posted items of anyone else, but do encourage responses of your own to other people’s posted items.

By posting to our Site, you are allowing us to use your posted items forever without having to pay you anything for that use.

Finally, you promise that everything you post to our Site is owned by you and will not violate these Terms of Use or our Privacy Policy.

 

LINKS

THE LEGAL JARGON: You may not use a Global Lanes logo or other proprietary graphic of Global Lanes to link to the Site without the express written permission of Global Lanes. Further, you may not frame the Global Lanes Content, without Global Lanes’ express written consent.

Global Lanes makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, directly or indirectly, the quality, content, nature or reliability of third-party websites accessible by hyperlink from the Site, or websites linking to the Site. Such sites are not under the control of Global Lanes and Global Lanes is not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site, or any review, changes or updates to such sites. Global Lanes provides these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply affiliation, endorsement or adoption by Global Lanes of any site or any information contained therein. When you leave the Site, you should be aware that our terms and policies no longer govern. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any site to which you navigate from the Site, including, but not limited to, the third-party portal used for processing your payment.

Your participation, correspondence or business dealings with any third party found on or through the Site, regarding the payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. You agree that Global Lanes shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage or other matters of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: Please do not use our name or logo to attract people to any site, including our own.  Allow our marketing team to do their job and drive traffic to us on their own.  Once you are on our Site, you will see hyperlinks to other websites, including when you pay for our photos. 

We don’t have control over any of those other sites, so please read their privacy policies and terms of use/service so that you know what you are getting yourself into.  And since we have no control over those other sites, if something goes wrong there, that’s between you and that company.

 

REGISTRATION DATA AND ACCOUNT SECURITY

THE LEGAL JARGON: In creating an account to make a purchase on the Site, you agree to: (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site ("Registration Data"); (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to Company, to keep it accurate, current and complete; (c) maintain the security of your password and identification; (d) notify Global Lanes immediately of any unauthorized use of or access to your account or other breach of security; (e) accept all responsibility for any and all activities that occur under your account, including but not limited to, all purchases, applicable taxes and any applicable third-party fees (including but not limited to credit card fees, foreign exchange fees and cross border fees); and (f) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the Registration Data and any other information you provide to Company.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: It’s important that you provide accurate information when you sign up for an account with us and we ask that you update it as the requested items change over time.  It’s even more important that you help keep your account safe by not providing your password to other people.  Any actions that are taken while logged in to your account are your responsibility.  Please also understand that if there is any unauthorized access to your account, we are not responsible for what that unauthorized user does.

If you think your account has been compromised, please notify us immediately at contact.globallanes@gmail.com.

 

INDEMNIFICATION

THE LEGAL JARGON: You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Global Lanes, its subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, employees, agents, third party information providers and independent contractors against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or related to any third party claims based on User Content that you post, store or otherwise transmit on or through the Site, your conduct on the Site, your breach or alleged breach of the Site Terms or of any representation or warranty contained herein, your unauthorized use of the Global Lanes Content, or your violation of any rights of another.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: We love our visitors, but we won’t be responsible for paying for any bad stuff you do that get us in trouble. Essentially, if anything you do gets us sued, you will pay for all costs associated with that lawsuit.  It’s kind of like a “you break it, you buy it” policy.

 

DISCLAIMER

THE LEGAL JARGON: THE SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE GLOBAL LANES CONTENT, IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND GLOBAL LANES AND ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, CONTENT PROVIDERS, AGENTS AND AFFILIATES EXCLUDE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. GLOBAL LANES WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE SITE OR THE GLOBAL LANES CONTENT, OR THE UNAVAILABILITY OF THE SAME, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, AND DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE SITE OR THE GLOBAL LANES CONTENT IS FREE FROM INFECTION BY VIRUSES OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT HAS CONTAMINATING OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES. Global Lanes uses reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy, correctness and reliability of the Global Lanes Content, but we make no representations or warranties as to the Global Lanes Content's accuracy, correctness or reliability.

Global Lanes offers a search feature within the Site. Global Lanes explicitly disclaims any responsibility for the content or availability of information contained in our search index or directory. Global Lanes also disclaims any responsibility for the completeness or accuracy of any directory or search result.

Some US states and foreign countries do not permit the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or liability for certain categories of damages. Therefore, some or all of the limitations above may not apply to you to the extent they are prohibited or superseded by state or national provisions.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: We try hard to keep this Site safe and enjoyable.  But kind of like a home you buy, there may be an issue every now and then, and you, as a rational human being, understands that stuff happens.  We will continue to work hard to keep this Site safe and enjoyable but we don’t make any promises about anything on the Site.

Also, words in all caps doesn’t mean we are yelling at you, it just means that these parts are extra important information that you need to know.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

THE LEGAL JARGON: IN NO EVENT SHALL GLOBAL LANES, ITS DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF PROFITS OR LOSS OF DATA, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF THE SITE, THE SERVICES, THE GLOBAL LANES CONTENT OR THE MATERIALS CONTAINED IN OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF GLOBAL LANES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SITE EXCEED ANY COMPENSATION YOU PAY, IF ANY, TO GLOBAL LANES FOR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: Our Site is meant to bring you joy, but if using our Site hurts you in some way, we are not responsible.  And if somehow we are responsible, we are only responsible for up to the amount of money you paid us to use our site.

 

APPLICABLE LAW AND VENUE

THE LEGAL JARGON: Any dispute relating in any way to your use of the Site or the Global Lanes Content shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Denver, Colorado, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Global Lanes’ intellectual property rights, Global Lanes may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Colorado, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this provision shall be conducted by a single arbitrator under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator's award shall 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 this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to the Site Terms, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: If we have to enforce the “you break it, you buy it” policy we discussed early or bring any other legal action, it will take place in arbitration in Denver, CO.  If you have any legal action against us, you will bring it as arbitration in Denver, CO.

 

TERMINATION

THE LEGAL JARGON: Notwithstanding any of these Site Terms, Global Lanes reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your account and/or to block your use of the Site.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: We sure hope we don’t have to do this, but if we want to, we can keep you from accessing our Site.

 

MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

THE LEGAL JARGON: Any waiver of any provision of the Site Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by Global Lanes. If any clause in these Site Terms is found to be unenforceable, wherever possible this will not affect any other clause and each will remain in full force and effect. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: Everything on this Site is enforceable unless we waive that right in writing.  If our lawyers messed up and one part of this document is not enforceable, then nothing changes besides that one section. 

 

CHANGES TO SITE TERMS

THE LEGAL JARGON: Global Lanes reserves the right to change any of the terms and conditions contained in the Site Terms or any policy or guideline of the Site, at any time and in its sole discretion. When we make changes, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of the Site Terms. In the event we make a material change to these Site Terms, we will notify you by email, posting a prominent notice on the Site, or other similar means.  Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting on the Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes. We encourage you to review the Site Terms whenever you visit one of our websites.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU: At some point in the future, our lawyers may tell us we need to change something you have read.  When we make those changes, the “last updated” date at the top will change, so keep an eye on that to make sure you are up-to-date.  Your use of the site after we make any changes is you saying that you agree to those changes.
