Below are some potential terms and conditions for donations.

Acceptance of Terms Through Use:

Before using www.visitmissouritrails.com (collectively the "Site") please read the following terms carefully. BY USING THIS SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS. The Missouri Trails Alliance (hereafter "MPRA") may revise these terms from time to time. If you continue to use our Site after we post changes to these terms, it will mean that you accept such changes.

General Provisions:

These terms shall be construed according to the laws of the State of Missouri, United States of America, without regard to conflict of law principles. Missouri courts have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any claims or disputes relating to this Site or the Content, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.

Failure of the MPRA to enforce any of these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such terms or any other terms.

In the event that one or more portions of these Terms shall, for any reason, be held to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect.

The headings used throughout these Terms are solely for convenience of reference and are not to be used as an aid in the interpretation of these Terms.

These Terms make up the entire agreement between you and the MPRA regarding the Site and supersede any prior agreements.

These Terms do not confer any third party beneficiary rights.

The MPRA does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not send any information about themselves to the MPRA. If a child under 13 submits information through any part of Site or Services, and the MPRA becomes aware that the person submitting the information is a child, we will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible.

We will do all we reasonably can to protect this site and all internet communications passing between us and you, but we cannot be held responsible for:

  • Any losses arising from fraudulent or unauthorized use of your credit or debit card or other forms of payment. If you become aware of fraudulent use or your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you should notify your card issuer.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure.
