Group DescriptionWhat inspires you to get moving? Send in your photos of people in action— whether it’s an everyday activity like going to the movies, or a titanic event like scaling the Matterhorn, whether it’s swimming with dolphins, or walking the dog. And your pics could appear for Visa campaigns all over the world.
Have you ever been surprised to find out some place takes Visa? (Places like your neighbor’s lemonade stand, or a traveling noodle shop in Tibet.) If you have, send those pictures along, too.
To share, just post your photos—the more active, the better.
The photos should feature action: entering a cinema, rather than just staring at a screen. We prefer photos which show people doing things together. And we especially like photos with vibrant color (no black and white). Please only submit photos you have personally taken. Please do not submit photos with political content, and, of course, no inappropriate, lewd or off-color material. See Group Rules for details.
Unfortunately, not all images will be featured in the campaign.
Group RulesThese terms, along with the Flickr Community Guidelines, govern your participation in the Flickr Life in Action group (the “Group”), including your submission of a photograph (the “Photograph”) to the Group. By accessing or using the Group and in consideration of Visa allowing you to use and participate in the Group, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
By submitting a Photograph, you represent, warrant and agree to the following:
i. You are at least eighteen (18) years of age (or the age of majority in your jurisdiction), own all rights in the Photograph and have the right to grant Visa U.S.A. Inc. (“Visa”) a license to use the Photograph (including the names and likenesses of any people, and any other material, embodied in the Photograph) as described herein without violating the rights of anyone else;
ii. You have obtained written permission from each person who is depicted in the Photograph to submit their picture (or, in the case of minors, the permission of the minor’s parent or legal guardian) for use as described herein and you will provide written proof of such consent upon request;
iii. The Photograph does not include any products, brand names, logos, signs, artwork, posters or other material in the foreground or background that is owned by anyone other than you;
iv. The Photograph does not contain any material that is obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically or religiously offensive, politically charged or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, depicts gambling references or tobacco use, gives rise to civil liability, violates any law or is otherwise inappropriate; all as determined by Visa in its sole discretion; and
v. The Photograph does not include advertisements or solicitations of business, or company names, including, but not limited to, any of Visa’s competitors; &
Notwithstanding any Creative Commons license under which you may have previously submitted the Photograph to Flickr, by submitting the Photograph, you hereby grant to Visa and its affiliates, agents, licensees and assigns the irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicenseable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid, right and license (but not the obligation) to reproduce, display, exploit, modify, create derivative works from and otherwise use the Photograph (including, your name and likeness and the names and likenesses of any people, and any other material, embodied in the Photograph), your Flickr user name, and any title(s) and description(s) of the Photograph, in any manner, media or venue, whether now known or later devised, including, without limitation, on flickr.com and any websites owned or controlled by Visa or its affiliates or agents, for any purpose, including, without limitation, commercial and advertising uses until December 31, 2009, without compensation or notice to, or approval from, you or any third party. The Photograph may be used alone or in conjunction with photographs submitted by others and/or such other content as Visa shall determine in its discretion. Visa shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to edit, composite, morph, scan, duplicate, or alter the Photograph in any manner. Visa reserves the right, in its discretion and at any time, to refrain from using, or ceasing to use, any Photograph for any reason, including, without limitation, if the Photograph fails to comply with these terms. You may submit as many Photographs as you wish. There is no guarantee that any Photograph you submit will be used in any manner.
THE GROUP IS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU “AS IS” WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ASSUME TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK FOR YOUR USE OF THE GROUP AND THE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU SUBMIT. IN NO EVENT AND UNDER NO CAUSE OF ACTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE, SHALL VISA AND ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, LICENSEES AND ASSIGNS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR LOSSES INCURRED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, COMPENSATORY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES), HOWEVER CAUSED, AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE GROUP, YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS AND VISA’S USE OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS, EVEN IF VISA IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR LOSSES. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, VISA’S CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU ARISING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO TEN DOLLARS. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER, EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES AND DAMAGES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, VISA’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
If any provision of these terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California, notwithstanding its conflicts of law provisions. In the event of a dispute arising out of these terms, your use of the Group or your Photograph, the proper jurisdiction and venue will be the state or federal courts residing in San Francisco County, California. You consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of these courts over you in the event of such a dispute. Nothing in these terms will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship between you and Visa.
