Terms of Service

Terms of Service & Membership

Last Updated: December 26, 2022

Outdoorsy Black Women builds technologies and services that enable people to connect with each other, build communities, and grow businesses. These Terms govern your use of Outdoorsy Black Women and the other products, features, apps, services, technologies, and software we offer, except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Products are provided to you by Trimble & Ajayi LLC.

We don’t charge you to use Outdoorsy Black Women or the other products and services covered by these Terms. Instead, businesses and organizations pay us to show you ads for their products and services. By using our Products, you agree that we can show you ads that we think will be relevant to you and your interests. We use your personal data to help determine which ads to show you.

We don’t sell your personal data to advertisers, and we don’t share information that directly identifies you (such as your name, email address or other contact information) with advertisers unless you give us specific permission. Instead, advertisers can tell us things like the kind of audience they want to see their ads, and we show those ads to people who may be interested. We provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads that help them understand how people are interacting with their content. See Section 2 below to learn more.

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your personal data to determine some of the ads you see and provide all of the other services described below. You can also go to your profile settings at any time to review the privacy choices you have about how we use your data.

1. The services we provide

Our mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To help advance this mission, we provide the Products and services described below to you: Provide a personalized experience for you: Your experience on Outdoorsy Black Women is unlike anyone else’s: from the posts, stories, events, ads, and other content you see in News Feed or our video platform to the Profiles you follow and other features you might use, such as Trending, Marketplace, and search. We use the data we have – for example, about the connections you make, the choices and settings you select, and what you share and do on and off our Products – to personalize your experience. Connect you with people and organizations you care about: We help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that matter to you across the Outdoorsy Black Women Products you use. We use the data we have to make suggestions for you and others – for example, groups to join, events to attend, Profiles to follow or send a message to, shows to watch, and people you may want to become friends with. Stronger ties make for better communities, and we believe our services are most useful when people are connected to people, groups, and organizations they care about. Empower you to express yourself and communicate about what matters to you: There are many ways to express yourself on Outdoorsy Black Women and to communicate with friends, family, and others about what matters to you – for example, sharing status updates, photos, videos, and stories across the Outdoorsy Black Women Products you use, sending messages to a friend or several people, creating events or groups, or adding content to your profile. We have also developed, and continue to explore, new ways for people to use technology, such as augmented reality and 360 video to create and share more expressive and engaging content on Outdoorsy Black Women. Help you discover content, products, and services that may interest you: We show you ads, offers, and other sponsored content to help you discover content, products, and services that are offered by the many businesses and organizations that use Outdoorsy Black Women and other Outdoorsy Black Women Products. Section 2 below explains this in more detail. Combat harmful conduct and protect and support our community: People will only build community on Outdoorsy Black Women if they feel safe. We employ dedicated teams around the world and develop advanced technical systems to detect misuse of our Products, harmful conduct towards others, and situations where we may be able to help support or protect our community. If we learn of content or conduct like this, we will take appropriate action – for example, offering help, removing content, removing or restricting access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement. We share data with other Outdoorsy Black Women Companies when we detect misuse or harmful conduct by someone using one of our Products. Use and develop advanced technologies to provide safe and functional services for everyone: We use and develop advanced technologies – such as artificial intelligence, machine learning systems, and augmented reality – so that people can use our Products safely regardless of physical ability or geographic location. For example, technology like this helps people who have visual impairments understand what or who is in photos or videos shared on Outdoorsy Black Women. We also build sophisticated network and communication technology to help more people connect to the internet in areas with limited access. And we develop automated systems to improve our ability to detect and remove abusive and dangerous activity that may harm our community and the integrity of our Products. Research ways to make our services better: We engage in research to develop, test, and improve our Products. This includes analyzing the data we have about our users and understanding how people use our Products, for example by conducting surveys and testing and troubleshooting new features. Our Privacy Policy explains how we use data to support this research for the purposes of developing and improving our services. Provide consistent and seamless experiences across the Outdoorsy Black Women Company Products: Our Products help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that are important to you. We design our systems so that your experience is consistent and seamless across the different Outdoorsy Black Women Company Products that you use. For example, we use data about the people you engage with on Outdoorsy Black Women to make it easier for you to connect with them on our app, and we enable you to communicate with a business you follow on Outdoorsy Black Women chat. Enable global access to our services: To operate our global service, we need to store and distribute content and data in our data centers and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence. This infrastructure may be operated or controlled by Trimble & Ajayi LLC or its affiliates.

2. How our services are funded

Instead of paying to use Outdoorsy Black Women and the other products and services we offer, by using the Outdoorsy Black Women Products covered by these Terms, you agree that we can show you ads that businesses and organizations pay us to promote on and off the Outdoorsy Black Women Company Products. We use your personal data, such as information about your activity and interests, to show you ads that are more relevant to you. Protecting people’s privacy is central to how we’ve designed our ad system. This means that we can show you relevant and useful ads without telling advertisers who you are. We don’t sell your personal data. We allow advertisers to tell us things like their business goal, and the kind of audience they want to see their ads (for example, people between the age of 18-35 who like fishing). We then show their ad to people who might be interested. We also provide advertisers with reports about the performance of their ads to help them understand how people are interacting with their content on and off Outdoorsy Black Women. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in London and likes camping) to help them better understand their audience. We don’t share information that directly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us specific permission. You can learn about how we collect and use your data in our Privacy Policy.

3. Your commitments to Outdoorsy Black Women and our community

We provide these services to you and others to help advance our mission. In exchange, we need you to make the following commitments: 1. Who can use Outdoorsy Black Women. When people stand behind their opinions and actions, our community is safer and more accountable. For this reason, you must:

  • Use the same name that you use in everyday life.
  • Provide accurate information about yourself.
  • Create only one account (your own) and use your timeline for personal purposes.
  • Not share your password, give access to your Outdoorsy Black Women account to others, or transfer your account to anyone else (without our permission).

We try to make Outdoorsy Black Women broadly available to everyone, but would like to outline who Outdoorsy Black Women is for:

  • You are 18 years old older.
  • You are a woman, identify as such or non-binary.
  • You are of Black/African Decent.
  • You are not a convicted sex offender.
  • We haven’t previously disabled your account for violations of our Terms or Policies.
  • You are not prohibited from receiving our products, services, or software under applicable laws.

2. What you can share and do on Outdoorsy Black Women. We want people to use Outdoorsy Black Women to express themselves and to share content that is important to them, but not at the expense of the safety and well-being of others or the integrity of our community. You therefore agree not to engage in the conduct described below (or to facilitate or support others in doing so):

  1. You may not use our Products to do or share anything:
    • That violates these Terms, our Community Standards, and other terms and policies that apply to your use of Outdoorsy Black Women.
    • That is unlawful, misleading, discriminatory or fraudulent.
    • That infringes or violates someone else’s rights, including their intellectual property rights.
  2. You may not upload viruses or malicious code or do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working or appearance of our Products.
  3. You may not access or collect data from our Products using automated means (without our prior permission) or attempt to access data you do not have permission to access.

We can remove or restrict access to content that is in violation of these provisions. If we remove content that you have shared in violation of our Community Standards, we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request another review, unless you seriously or repeatedly violate these Terms or if doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Products; where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons. To help support our community, we encourage you to report content or conduct that you believe violates your rights (including intellectual property rights) or our terms and policies. We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Outdoorsy Black Women. 3. The permissions you give us. We need certain permissions from you to provide our services:

  1. Permission to use content you create and share: Some content that you share or upload, such as photos or videos, may be protected by intellectual property laws. You own the intellectual property rights (things like copyright or trademarks) in any such content that you create and share on Outdoorsy Black Women and the other Outdoorsy Black Women Company Products you use. Nothing in these Terms takes away the rights you have to your own content. You are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want. However, to provide our services we need you to give us some legal permissions (known as a ‘license’) to use this content. This is solely for the purposes of providing and improving our Products and services as described in Section 1 above. Specifically, when you share, post, or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Products, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and application settings). This means, for example, that if you share a photo on Outdoorsy Black Women, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others (again, consistent with your settings) such as service providers that support our service or other Outdoorsy Black Women Products you use. This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems. You can delete content individually or all at once by deleting your account. Contact us if you need assistance with how to delete your account. You can download a copy of your data at any time before deleting your account. When you delete content, it’s no longer visible to other users, however it may continue to exist elsewhere on our systems where:
    • immediate deletion is not possible due to technical limitations (in which case, your content will be deleted within a maximum of 90 days from when you delete it);
    • your content has been used by others in accordance with this license and they have not deleted it (in which case this license will continue to apply until that content is deleted); or
    • where immediate deletion would restrict our ability to:
      • investigate or identify illegal activity or violations of our terms and policies (for example, to identify or investigate misuse of our Products or systems);
      • comply with a legal obligation, such as the preservation of evidence; or
      • comply with a request of a judicial or administrative authority, law enforcement or a government agency;
  2. Permission to use your name, profile picture, and information about your actions with ads and sponsored content: You give us permission to use your name and profile picture and information about actions you have taken on Outdoorsy Black Women next to or in connection with ads, offers, and other sponsored content that we display across our Products, without any compensation to you. For example, we may show your friends that you are interested in an advertised event or have liked a Profile created by a brand that has paid us to display its ads on Outdoorsy Black Women. Ads like this can be seen only by people who have your permission to see the actions you’ve taken on Outdoorsy Black Women.
  3. Permission to update software you use or download: If you download or use our software, you give us permission to download and install updates to the software where available.

4. Limits on using our intellectual property. If you use content covered by intellectual property rights that we have and make available in our Products (for example, images, designs, videos, or sounds we provide that you add to content you create or share on Outdoorsy Black Women), we retain all rights to that content (but not yours). You can only use our copyrights or trademarks (or any similar marks) a with our prior written permission. You must obtain our written permission (or permission under an open source license) to modify, create derivative works of, decompile, or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us.

4. Additional provisions

1. Updating our Terms. We work constantly to improve our services and develop new features to make our Products better for you and our community. As a result, we may need to update these Terms from time to time to accurately reflect our services and practices. Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you before we make changes to these Terms and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect. Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our Products. We hope that you will continue using our Products, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to be a part of the Outdoorsy Black Women community, you can delete your account at any time. 2. Account suspension or termination. We want Outdoorsy Black Women to be a place where people feel welcome and safe to express themselves and share their thoughts and ideas. If we determine that you have clearly, seriously or repeatedly breached our Terms or Policies, including in particular our Community Standards, we may suspend or permanently disable access to your account. We may also suspend or disable your account if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights or where we are required to do so for legal reasons. Where we take such action we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review, unless doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Products; or where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons. You can contact us to learn more about what you can do if your account has been disabled and how to contact us if you think we have disabled your account by mistake. If you delete or we disable your account, these Terms shall terminate as an agreement between you and us, but the following provisions will remain in place: Limits on liability. We work hard to provide the best Products we can and to specify clear guidelines for everyone who uses them. Our Products, however, are provided “as is,” and we make no guarantees that they always will be safe, secure, or error-free, or that they will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. To the extent permitted by law, we also DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. We do not control or direct what people and others do or say, and we are not responsible for their actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or any content they share (including offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful, and other objectionable content).We cannot predict when issues might arise with our Products. Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstance will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms or the Outdoorsy Black Women Products, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Outdoorsy Black Women Products will not exceed the greater of $100 or the amount you have paid us in the past twelve months. 4. Other

  1. These Terms make up the entire agreement between you and Trimble & Ajayi, Inc. regarding your use of our Products. They supersede any prior agreements.
  2. Some of the Products we offer are also governed by supplemental terms. If you use any of those Products, supplemental terms will be made available and will become part of our agreement with you. For instance, if you access or use our Products for commercial or business purposes, such as buying ads, selling products, developing apps, managing a group or profile for your business, or using our measurement services, you must agree to our Terms. If you post or share content containing music, you must comply with our Music Guidelines. To the extent any supplemental terms conflict with these Terms, the supplemental terms shall govern to the extent of the conflict.
  3. If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to enforce any of these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms must be made in writing and signed by us.
  4. You will not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent.
  5. These Terms do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights. All of our rights and obligations under these Terms are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise.
  6. You should know that we may need to change the username for your account in certain circumstances (for example, if someone else claims the username and it appears unrelated to the name you use in everyday life).
  7. We always appreciate your feedback and other suggestions about our products and services. But you should know that we may use them without any restriction or obligation to compensate you, and we are under no obligation to keep them confidential.
  8. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you.

5. User Accounts/Memberships

Whether you register an account on the Service or use the Service without registering an account, you may access the Service and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion subject to this Agreement.  We may maintain different types of accounts (“User Accounts”) for different types of Users.  To access certain features or areas of the Service, you may be required to provide personal and/or demographic information as part of a registration or login process.  If requested, you also agree to provide contact information for a personal contact and/or a close family member or relation, to your Provider through your User Account, to act as an information source in case of an emergency where knowledge of your location is crucial.  We may reject, or require that you change, any user name, password, or other information that you provide to us in registering.  By connecting to the Service through a third-party service (such as a social media platform), you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service and to store your log-in credentials for that service.

You may never use another Users’ User Account without permission.  When creating your User Account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date (this includes your contact information, so that we can reliably contact you).  You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your User Account, and if you are required to provide a password for your User Account, you must keep it secure.  You must notify Company immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your User Account.  Company will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your User Account.

By providing Company your email address and other contact information, you consent to us using such contact information to send you Service-related notices by email, or any other contact form you may provide us with (including your phone number for calls or text messages), and you agree to receive such notices.  Company is not responsible or liable for any loss, injury, or claim of any kind resulting from your failure to receive or read these communications, or from your failure to comply with any recommendations contained in these communications.

6. Changes to the Service

We may, without notice and liability, change the Service, stop providing the Service or certain features of the Service, to you or to Users generally, or create usage limits for the Service.  We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason, including if, in our sole determination, you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason.

7. Promotions

Any sweepstakes, contests, raffles, surveys, games, or similar promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) made available through the Service may be governed by rules that are separate from this Agreement.  If you participate in any Promotions, please review the applicable rules as well as our Privacy Policy.  If the rules for a Promotion conflict with this Agreement, the Promotion rules will govern.

8. Service Location

The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in the United States.  Company makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in jurisdictions other than the jurisdictions where the Company has made the Service available.  Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations.  You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government.  Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.

9.  Paid Services

The Service may make available listings, descriptions, and images of goods and services, including those available for one-time payment and also as Membership Plans, as defined below (collectively, “Paid Services”), or related coupons or discounts. 

10. Membership Plans

Certain features, content, functionalities, and other aspects of the Service may be available through programs for users with valid memberships (each such membership program, a “Membership Plan”).  The duration of the membership period for each Membership Plan (the “Membership Term”), the applicable fees for each Membership Plan (the “Membership Fee”), and other related payment terms (e.g., due dates) are currently set forth in this FAQ page, and are subject to change by Company from time to time.   

Your Membership Plan may start with a free trial period in the Company’s discretion.  You will be charged the applicable Membership Fee for the initial paid Membership Term at the end of the free trial period, unless you cancel your free trial before the end of the free trial period.  The duration of the free trial period may differ for different users, and, if you receive a free trial, the duration will be specified by the Company during your Membership Plan registration process.

After an initial Membership Term, each applicable Membership Plan will automatically renew for subsequent renewal periods of the same duration as the initial Membership Term, unless you cancel your applicable Membership Plan by notifying us at least 72 hours before the applicable renewal date that you wish to cancel your Membership Plan or do not wish to automatically renew your Membership Plan, as discussed further below.  You understand and agree that your Membership Plan(s) will automatically continue for additional periods, unless you cancel or do not renew in accordance with this Agreement, and you authorize Company (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect and charge the then-applicable Membership Fee(s) and any applicable taxes, for each such renewal, using any payment card that Company has on file for you.  You agree to provide Company with alternate payment card information if the payment card Company has on file for you is no longer valid, or if you choose to use a different payment card.

If you participate in a Membership Plan, you are responsible for payment of the applicable Membership Fee and all applicable taxes.  All purchases for a Membership Plan are final.  Except as otherwise required by applicable law, any paid Membership Fees (or payable Membership Fees for the remainder of an existing Membership Term) are non-cancellable and non-refundable.  If you decide to cancel your participation in a Membership Plan, it means that your participation will automatically end at the end of your then-current Membership Term.  For example, if you cancel in the middle of a monthly Membership Term, your participation will continue until the end of that Membership Term.  For instructions on how to cancel your participation in a Membership Plan, please contact us at [email protected].  You must contact our support team at least 72 hours before the end of the applicable Membership Term or free trial period.

Company reserves the right, in its discretion, to exclude any individual(s) from any Membership Plan or to terminate participation in any Membership Plan, for any reason, including abuse of the Membership Plan, failure to comply with this Agreement, or fraud, misrepresentation, or other conduct detrimental to the interests of Company.  Any such exclusion or termination may affect eligibility for further participation in any Membership Plan.

Membership Plans may be subject to additional or different terms, conditions, or policies, as made available and updated by Company from time to time.  In the event of any conflict between any such terms, conditions, or policies, and this Agreement, such terms, conditions, or policies will control with respect to the applicable Membership Plan.

11. Payments, Refunds, Shipping and Fulfillment, and Cancellation

(1) Payments

All fees are in U.S. Dollars, except as stated otherwise in writing by Company.  All fees are exclusive of all applicable taxes (including value added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable taxes.  We recommend that you verify the existence and amount of any additional fees you may be charged by third parties in connection with any transaction (such as international transaction fees, currency exchange fees, or fees due to banks or credit card companies).  Company is not responsible for any such additional fees or costs.

As part of registering or submitting information to receive Paid Services, you authorize Company (either directly or through its affiliates, subsidiaries, or other third parties) to request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund, or take any other billing actions) from our payment provider or your designated banking account, and to make any inquiries Company or its affiliates may consider necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card, or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card company).  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE MAY SUBMIT CHARGES WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.  YOU ALSO REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD THAT YOU SUBMIT IN CONNECTION WITH A TRANSACTION.

If the credit card you supplied to us is declined, you may be required to supply a new form of payment.  Please note, however, that if a credit card you supplied to us is declined, we may first try to charge your card a few more times.  Payments will be subject to Company’s payment policies.

(2) Refunds

Payments are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds for partially used Membership Term periods. User shall not be entitled to any partial refunds for such service outages or disruptions. For purposes of this Agreement, “Service Outage” means any event that renders the Services unavailable to Customer/Member, other than Scheduled Downtime or Excluded Downtime. Since our shop products are made to order, we do not offer exchanges or refunds.

(3) Fulfillment and Shipping

Any shipments will be shipped to an address designated by you, if applicable, so long as such address is complete and complies with any applicable shipping restrictions.  All transactions are made pursuant to a fulfillment and shipping contract and, as a result, risk of loss and title pass to you upon delivery to the carrier.  You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.

(4) Cancellations

Company reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue making available any Service (including any Paid Service), to impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, discount or similar promotion, to bar any user from making any transaction, and to refuse to provide any user with any Service (including any Paid Service).  Cancellations will be subject to Company’s then-current cancellation policies.  You agree to pay all charges incurred by you or on your behalf through the Service, at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including all shipping and handling charges.  In addition, you are responsible for any taxes applicable to your transactions.  While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service.

If a Service or applicable product is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error, or error in pricing information received from a third party, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the Service or applicable product listed at the incorrect price.  We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card charged.  If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will promptly issue a credit to your credit or debit card account in the amount of the charge.

12. Return Policy

Any claims for misprinted/damaged/defective items must be submitted within 7 days after the product has been received. For packages lost in transit, all claims must be submitted no later than 7 days after the estimated delivery date. Claims deemed an error on our part are covered at our expense. Since our products are made to order, we do not offer exchanges or refunds.

Wrong Address – If you provide an address that is considered insufficient by the courier, the shipment will be returned to our facility. You will be liable for reshipment costs once we have confirmed an updated address with you (if and as applicable).

Unclaimed – Shipments that go unclaimed are returned to our facility and you will be liable for the cost of a reshipment (if and as applicable).

Returns – Please contact us before returning any products. We do not refund orders for buyer’s remorse. Returns for products, face masks, as well as size exchanges are to be offered at your expense. A new order would need to be placed.

Amazon Orders – For products purchased through out Amazon affiliate links, please refer to Amazon for the refund/return policies of those items.

Notification for EU consumers: According to Article 16(c) and (e) of the Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights, the right of withdrawal may not be provided for:

1. the supply of goods that are made to the consumer’s specifications or are clearly personalized;
2. sealed goods which were unsealed after delivery and thus aren’t suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons,

14. Event Liability Release & Hold Harmless Agreement

When you attend a Outdoorsy Black Women events you are in effect signing an Outdoorsy Black Women Release Agreement. The current version of that agreement is shown below. If you do not wish to sign (or have your name signed by the Ambassador) you will not be permitted to attend the event. This holds true for all attendees, Outdoorsy Black Women members, guests, and the general public.

Please read this entire Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks, Release, and Indemnity Agreement (hereafter “Document”) carefully before signing. The adult participant (aged 18 years or older) (referenced as “I,” “my,” “me,” or “Participant”) who wishes to take part in any activity organized or facilitated by Outdoorsy Black Women must sign this Document prior to participation.

In consideration of the services of Outdoorsy Black Women, a Georgia club/organization, and its officers, directors, trustees, advisors, employees, agents, representatives, volunteers, independent contractors, and all other persons or entities associated with it (individually and collectively, “Outdoorsy Black Women”), I acknowledge and agree as follows:

Outdoorsy Black Women organizes and facilitates year-round outdoor recreational and instructional activities. These activities may include, but are not limited to: hiking, backpacking, camping, trail running, ultra-running, bicycle touring, road cycling, mountain biking, canoeing, canyoneering, canyoning, coasteering, ice climbing, kayaking, mountaineering, alpinism, rafting, rock climbing, bouldering, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, alpine touring, snowshoeing, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, day or multi-day outdoor leadership retreats, educational events including Wilderness First Responder and Swift Water Rescue courses, and travel in non- Outdoorsy Black Women -affiliated vehicles (including my own vehicle) to and from activities, courses, or otherwise (collectively referred to as “Activities”).

Outdoorsy Black Women organizes and facilitates year-round outdoor recreational and instructional activities. These activities may include, but are not limited to: hiking, backpacking, camping, trail running, ultra-running, bicycle touring, road cycling, mountain biking, canoeing, canyoneering, canyoning, coasteering, ice climbing, kayaking, mountaineering, alpinism, rafting, rock climbing, bouldering, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, alpine touring, snowshoeing, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, day or multi-day outdoor leadership retreats, educational events including Wilderness First Responder and Swift Water Rescue courses, and travel in non- Outdoorsy Black Women -affiliated vehicles (including my own vehicle) to and from activities, courses, or otherwise (collectively referred to as “Activities”).

Activities may take place in changing outdoor environments in Georgia, in other locations in the United States, and/or in other countries such as Canada. Outdoorsy Black Women’s Ambassadors (“Volunteers”) organize Activities on a casual, meet-up-style basis. I acknowledge that Volunteers are not employees or agents of Outdoorsy Black Women, are not required to have medical or other Activity-related training, and acknowledge that Outdoorsy Black Women is not legally liable or responsible for Volunteers’ conduct. In addition, Activities take place on land not owned or controlled by Outdoorsy Black Women. Outdoorsy Black Women does not oversee or take responsibility for any aspect or condition of Activity locations.

Participating (whether attending, observing, or actively participating) in Activities includes risks. I acknowledge that Activities include inherent and other risks, hazards, and dangers (collectively referred to as “Risks”) that can cause injury, damage, death, or other loss to myself or others. Some, but not all, of these Risks include:

(1) Risks present in an outdoor environment. These risks include travel in high altitude (above 5,000 ft.) terrain, over land or water. Travel may be subject to storms, including strong winds, rain, lightning, hail, snow, sleet, and other precipitation; currents, waves, fast-moving water, or whitewater; changing water level; high or low water; hot, humid, or cold weather or water; rapid and unpredictable weather changes; avalanches; falling or slippery rocks; landslides; fallen timber; stinging, venomous, and/or disease-carrying animals, insects, or microorganisms; poisonous plants; wild animals; and other natural or man-made hazards. Hazards (both on land and in water) may not be marked or visible. Weather is unpredictable year-round.

(2) Risks involved in judgment and decision-making. These risks include the risk that I, a Outdoorsy Black Women staff member/ambassador, a Volunteer, a co-participant, or other person may misjudge my (or others’, including the Volunteers’ own) capabilities, health, or physical condition, or misjudge some aspect of travel, instruction, medical treatment, weather, terrain, water conditions, water level, or route location.

(3) Personal health and participation risks. My mental, physical, or emotional condition (including the use or abuse of alcohol or any prescription or non-prescription drugs), disclosed or undisclosed, known or unknown, combined with participation in Activities includes risks. Outdoorsy Black Women cannot anticipate or eliminate risks or complications posed by my mental, physical (including fitness level), or emotional condition, nor will Outdoorsy Black Women provide any medication, first aid, or other health-related assistance to me.

(4) Risks associated with any outdoor or athletic activities. These risks include the risk that I may overestimate my abilities or fitness; be inattentive; lose control; trip; fall; or encounter other water/terrain/road/trail hazards; or fail to negotiate land or water conditions.

(5) Risks connected with geographic location. Activities may take place a distance from medical facilities, causing potential delays or difficulties in communication, transportation, evacuation, and medical care. Although I, Volunteers, other participants, or others may have access to wireless communication devices (including cell or SAT phones), use of these devices in outdoor, mountainous, or any other terrain is unreliable and inconsistent.

(6) Equipment risks. Equipment used in an Activity may break, fail, malfunction, or be misused. This risk includes my personal equipment or other equipment (whether purchased, borrowed, or rented). If I choose to bring and use my personal equipment, I assume full responsibility for choosing appropriate equipment and for the fit and condition of that equipment. Safety gear (such as personal floatation devices, ropes, first aid kits, etc.) may prevent or lessen injuries in some instances; however, use of safety gear, whether purchased, borrowed, or rented, is not a guarantee of safety, and injury can occur even with the use of this gear.

(7) Risks regarding conduct. The potential that I, Volunteers, other participants, or third parties, may act carelessly, negligently, or recklessly.

These risks may result in the Participant: falling to the ground or into water; being immersed in cold water; colliding with or impacting objects/people/equipment/rocks; getting caught or entangled in objects; experiencing vehicle collision, capsize, or rollover; reacting to high altitude, weather conditions, or increased exertion; becoming lost or disoriented; suffering gastrointestinal distress or allergic reactions; or experiencing other physical or emotional problems. These and other circumstances may cause heat- or cold-related illnesses or conditions (including hypothermia, hyperthermia, cold water immersion, frostbite, or heat exhaustion/stroke), dehydration, hyponatremia, drowning, high altitude sickness, heart or lung complications, broken bones, paralysis or other permanent disability, mental or emotional trauma, concussion, sunburn or other burns, infections, cuts, wounds, or other injuries, damage, death, or loss.

I understand that Outdoorsy Black Women cannot assure my safety or eliminate any Risks. During all Activities, I agree that I share in the responsibility for my own and the group’s well-being and will take reasonable precautions to protect the group and myself by, among other things, providing and carrying my own Equipment, medications, and other supplies. I have access to information about Outdoorsy Black Women’s rules and policies, will obey such rules and policies, and acknowledge that Outdoorsy Black Women representatives are available should I have further questions about Activities and Risks. I will voluntarily participate in Activities with knowledge of the Risks; therefore, I agree to assume and accept full responsibility for the Risks (both known and unknown) of Activities, and assume and accept responsibility for any injury, damage, death, or other loss suffered by me, resulting from those Risks, including the Risk of my negligence or other misconduct.


Please read carefully. This Agreement contains a surrender of certain legal rights. Some United States federal land agencies may restrict organizations, like Outdoorsy Black Women, from seeking releases of liability for negligence, injuries, or other losses occurring while operating under permit on some federal lands. Except to the extent a court determines such restrictions apply to Outdoorsy Black Women as a matter of law, I AGREE:

(1) To release and not to sue Outdoorsy Black Women with respect to any and all claims, liabilities, suits, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) (collectively “Claim” or “Claim(s)”) for any injury, damage, death, or other loss in any way connected with participation in any Activities, including my use of any equipment or vehicle. With this release, I understand that I agree to waive all Claim(s) I may have against Outdoorsy Black Women, bind my estate and any family member/heir/other party from bringing such Claim(s), and agree that neither I, nor anyone acting on my behalf, will make a Claim against Outdoorsy Black Women as a result of any injury, damage, death, or other loss suffered by me;

(2) To defend and indemnify (meaning to protect by reimbursement or payment) Outdoorsy Black Women with respect to any and all Claim(s) brought by me or on my behalf by my children, my spouse, my other family member(s), my heir(s) or estate, a co-participant, a volunteer, or any other person for any injury, damage, death, or other loss in any way connected with my participation in any Activities, including my use of any equipment or vehicle.

This Release and Indemnity Agreement includes Claim(s) of, or resulting from, Outdoorsy Black Women’s negligence (but not its gross negligence, or willful and wanton misconduct), and includes Claim(s) for personal injury or wrongful death (including Claim(s) related to emergency, medical, drug and/or health issues, response, assessment, or treatment), property damage, loss of consortium, breach of contract, or any other claim.

With my signature below, I authorize Outdoorsy Black Women staff, Outdoorsy Black Women contractors, Outdoorsy Black Women volunteers, and/or any medical personnel to obtain or provide medical care for me, to transport me to a medical facility, and to provide treatment that the relevant party considers necessary for my health. I agree to pay all costs associated with such medical care and transportation. I also agree to the release (to or by Outdoorsy Black Women) of any medical records necessary for treatment, referral, billing, or insurance purposes.

Applicable Law and Dispute Resolution: I agree that Georgia substantive law (without regard to its “conflict of laws” rules) governs this Document. Any dispute I have with Outdoorsy Black Women and all other aspects of my relationship with Outdoorsy Black Women, contractual or otherwise—including any dispute subject to mediation, lawsuit, or any other proceeding—must be filed or entered into in Lawrenceville, Georgia. I agree to attempt to settle any dispute (that cannot be settled by discussion) through mediation before a mutually acceptable Georgia mediator before filing a claim in court or pursuing other legal action.

Media Release: I grant to Outdoorsy Black Women and/or its agent(s), the right and permission to photograph, film, and/or otherwise capture my name, image, voice, written statement, photograph, and/or visual likeness (collectively “Images”), without compensation to me. Outdoorsy Black Women may use Images in any media throughout the world in perpetuity, including in broadcasts; for sale, reproduction, or display on the internet; in publications; and/or for any informational, educational, advertising, promotional, or other use. Outdoorsy Black Women retains all ownership rights and copyrights in the Images. I waive inspection or approval rights with respect to any Image(s).

Severability: This Document is intended to be interpreted and enforced to the fullest extent allowed by law. If any portion of this Document is found unlawful or unenforceable, such finding shall not affect the remaining provisions, and those remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.

This Document replaces and supersedes any former “Outdoorsy Black Women Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks, Release, and Indemnity Agreement” signed by me. This Document is effective in regard to my enrollment or participation in all Activities from the date signed until a subsequent “Outdoorsy Black Women Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks, Release, and Indemnity Agreement” is signed by me, and shall remain in full force and effect for all Activities I complete until that time.


I have carefully read, understand, and voluntarily sign/agree to this Document and acknowledge that it shall be effective and legally binding upon me, my children, spouse, other family members, and my heirs, executors, representatives, subrogees, assigns, and estate.
