Thank you for using TroutRoutes!
Throughout this document, the words “Trout Insights, Inc.” “TroutRoutes,” “we,” and “our,” refer to our company, Trout Insights, Inc. and our website, TroutInsights.com (the “Site”), the TroutRoutes application (the “App”) or our Service, TroutRoutes, as is appropriate in the context of the use of the words. Your ability to submit or transmit any information through our Site or Service will be referred to as “Content” throughout this Agreement.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
TroutRoutes assists fly anglers to locate fishable rivers and streams, including stream quality, access points, public land, road and trails that interact with streams, and publicly accessible water. Additionally, we offer a large database of points of interest (e.g. fly fishing shops, stream gauges, etc.) for the purpose of assisting in planning fly fishing trips. Our services are available as an App for Apple and Android products, as well as a web app available for Desktop.
DISCLAIMER AND INFORMATION ACCURACY
Our Service and App are intended to be used for planning purposes and are not to be relied upon for specific location accuracy services. Although we strive to provide the most accurate maps including location and point of interest information, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of all locations and points of interest. In some instances we may use third party data providers with data believed to be generally accurate although such data has not been specifically confirmed or verified in all locations.
Our Service or App is not intended to replace safety measures and appropriate planning. By utilizing this Service or App you understand that it does not purport to present real time accurate data and information. Indeed, any alerts are merely presentations of data from our Service, and therefore may not reflect actual circumstances. Predicted distance, arrival times, routes, and points of interests are all estimates. We make no guarantees as to time of arrival, destinations, or locations found on our App or Service.
PUBLIC & PRIVATE LAND
With regards to public land, we strive to provide you with the most up to date and comprehensive list of public land in and around the trout streams in the TroutRoutes application. To accomplish this, we rely on several third party data providers and sources, in addition to our own, including governmental agencies and private entities. However, we cannot practically gaurantee the accuracy of the data provided within our mapping platform, AND THUS IT IS ULTIMATELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to obey private property laws and ensure that land is indeed public, regardless of what TroutRoutes indicates. By using this application, you agree that Trout Insights, Inc. is not liable in any way for any legal issues or consequences related to trespassing and/or your usage of private land. This applies to both public land indications (green polygons) as well as access points, from trails and roads, which are indicated by color-coded points in the map.

The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction
For Jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability: Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law.

If you are a resident of a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding release then the following applies. For example, california residents must, as a condition of this agreement, waive the applicability of california civil code section 1542, which states, “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” You hereby waive this section of the california civil code. You hereby waive any similar provision in law, regulation, or code that has the same intent or effect as the aforementioned release. Your ability to use our software is contingent on your agreement with this and all other sections of this agreement. You agree our total liability to you is not more than $100 u.s. dollars or the total amount you spent while using our site, app, and service within the last six months, whichever is greater.

You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements.
