Special Considerations Related to Epic Mix™
Vail Resorts provides the option for you to share your experiences at our resorts with others through your Epic Mix account and the Epic Mix mobile applications. If you open an Epic Mix account, you understand that Vail Resorts will collect and maintain information related to your use of your ski pass at our resorts. Vail Resorts publishes that information to your Epic Mix account in order to provide the Epic Mix service to you. If you agree to have your picture taken by one of our professional photographers, we will upload the photographs to your Epic Mix account in order to provide you with the Epic Mix photography services. We will also collect and publish the User Content, such as your personal photographs, that you submit in connection with your Epic Mix account.
The Epic Mix service allows you to share content through various platforms, websites, and mobile applications, including Facebook and Twitter. You understand that Vail Resorts does not control what information gets published to those sites or who has access to that information. Those sites are managed by third parties and governed by the term of use and privacy policies published on those sites.
Epic Mix allows you to upload and share photographs and tag or identify other Epic Mix users in a photograph. You agree not to tag users without their consent. You agree not to post a photograph of a minor child or tag a minor child in a photograph without the consent of that child’s parent or guardian. If a user requests that you remove a photo containing their image or delete a tag, you will do so immediately. Vail Resorts reserves the right to remove photographs or tags at its discretion.
You understand that when you publish User Content to Epic Mix using the “public” setting (including posting photographs), it means you are allowing anyone to access and use that User Content.
