Buffalo Run Adventures Privacy and Use Policy

Ok, here’s the privacy policy and the fair use policy for Buffalo Run Adventures, LLC.

  1. Buffalo Run Adventures, LLC collects certain personal information as part of the business of putting on the various races. This information typically includes names, address, phone numbers, emergency contact information, birthdates, and maybe a few other pieces of info.
  2. Buffalo Run Adventures, LLC does not, and will not sell any information to outside companies.
  3. Buffalo Run Adventures, LLC may release name and contact information as a part of sponsorship opportunities with companies, but tries not to do this. Typically this is the official course photographer as they want to send you your pictures and get you to buy them. If they’re good pics, buy them. I don’t like being contacted unsolicited any more than you do, so I’m careful about what a potential sponsor wants in return for their sponsorship.
  4. Everything on the website www.buffalorun.org is copyrighted. This means that you must get my permission before you reprint any information from the website for use commercially. This includes course descriptions, photographs, videos, regardless of who took the pictures, etc. If you’re writing your race report in your blog and it’s for personal use. Feel free to use the info. If you grab any photos off this website for personal use in your blog, please, please, please make sure you give credit where credit is due. Too many people are not doing that, and it’s a very simple thing to do.
  5. If you are a commercial entity (website, company, etc.), you definitely must get my permission before you use anything. While I sometimes think plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery (especially as an Engineer), if you’re a commercial entity and plagiarize my website, I will not be happy.
  6. If you would like to put some stuff from the website on your personal blog as part of a race report or something similar, no problem, go ahead and do it. For the most part, I’m good with personal use.
  7. Pictures on the website are typically provided by runners or their families. I occasionally contract with a professional photographer to take runner’s pictures. If I do have a pro come out, they will contact you via e-mail to see if you want to purchase any of the photos. If they bug you beyond that, let me know. There are a couple of fellow ultrarunners who have also come out and taken fantastic pictures of you runners. Some of these may be posted on the Buffalo Run website. They may sell these photos or provide them to you for free. They typically ask my permission and are a part of the race permit with the state park.If you use pictures from the website, you must provide attribution.
  8. Occasionally, there may be professional film crews out on the course. Typically, if they photograph you or interview you, they will ask you to sign a release. This is their responsibility, not Buffalo Run Adventures’. If you don’t want that embarrassing picture of the fall you took going down the switchbacks to be published, let them know.
  9. Occasionally there may be commercial companies trying to shill their wares on you. Companies are not allowed to do that during the race unless it’s by my permission and as part of my permit with the state park. If you would like to know if they are a part of the event, just ask me. If they are not, I will have them removed by park personnel.
  10. I do have a bunch of trademarks that I claim. These are: Buffalo Run Adventures, Antelope Island Buffalo Run, Mountain View Trail Half Marathon, Antelope Island 50K/100K, Frary Peak Hill Climb, Sentry Peak Trail 10K. If you use these trademarks in a commercial way without asking, I will not be happy. If you use them in your blog for a race report, or something similar, go ahead.

Hmmm, can’t think of anything else. The main point with this is to cover Buffalo Run Adventures’ butt and to provide some sort of recourse should some unscrupulous party want to create havoc with my little events. I want to protect the integrity of these races as well as my own integrity.
