Group Rules

Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development
Visit Montana’s Official Group - Flickr - Rules


The Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development (MOTBD) maintains Visit Montana’s Official Group to provide a place for potential travelers to find inspiration for their journeys to and within the state of Montana. This means that all photos in this Group should be of people, places, or things directly connected to the state of Montana, USA.

MOTBD occasionally has need of a photo that tells a certain type of story about Montana for an advertisement or publication that cannot be met by the MOTBD's current library. In those cases, MOTBD may turn to photos and users in this Group. Outside of the social media uses outlined below, MOTBD will never use a photo from this Group for promotional purposes without first getting permission from its owner.


1. User Submissions

a. Types of Submissions Not Allowed

Still or motion images submitted to the Group containing the following depictions will not be allowed in the Group: pornographic materials, harassing messages, defamatory or libelous materials/messages, spam, advertisements, materials violating local, state or federal law, or political statements/messages.

In addition, Submissions that were not taken within the State of Montana and do not contain some subject bearing a direct connection to the State of Montana will not be allowed.

b. Removal of Submissions

MOTBD reserves the right to remove, reject or refuse any Submissions at its sole discretion to the Group as it sees fit.

c. Uses of Submissions by MOTBD

You hereby grant MOTBD and its affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right and license to publish your Group Submissions, along with any text, graphics, or other material that you post within the Group or to Group Submissions, to any of the Visit Montana social channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or YouTube). This use will always be accompanied by photographer credit.

In plain English, the above means that you should only submit photos/video that promote Montana. MOTBD can remove Submissions that stray from that goal, as well as use Submissions on Visit Montana social channels. It does not mean that MOTBD can use your Submissions for print advertisements or publications without your permission.

2. Interactive Areas

You assume full responsibility for risks associated with using discussion forums and other interactive areas of the Group. MOTBD is not responsible for and assumes no liability associated with Content or Submissions posted to the Group by you or anyone else. MOTBD is not liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity or for any statements or representations you may encounter in using the Group.

3. Removal or Suspension

Admittance to the Group is not guaranteed; MOTBD may at any time, at its sole discretion and without notice, terminate or suspend your right to use the Group.

4. User Age

Submissions are only allowed from users over 13 years of age, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Please note that by clicking on “I AGREE” you acknowledge that you are over 13 years of age.

You represent and warrant that (i) you own the Submissions or have the right to post or otherwise distribute them, including permission from all persons depicted in any Submissions; (ii) the Content is your original work and you have the right to post it; and (iii) the Content is complete and accurate.

6. Compliance with Flickr and Yahoo! Terms of Use
