MyAdventures.com (MyAdventures) is an Adventure Experience Network. As such, its purpose is to enable its members to share information and pictures about their adventures, plan future adventures and find others who share their interests, whether in their own neighborhood or on the other side of the globe. The site helps members obtain information about adventure activities, get ideas for new adventures, make new friends who share interests, and plan adventures with other individuals or groups. Its reason for being is to encourage people to experience the great outdoors.
As an Adventure Experience Network, while the site provides the ability for members to keep their adventures private, the purpose of the site is to share their interests and experiences so members can easily find and be found by other members based on adventure interests. As a result, MyAdventures strongly recommends that members keep their adventures open to being searched and viewed.
Adventures that MyAdventures finds interesting, unusual or otherwise remarkable (unless set as private by the member) may be displayed on MyAdventures.com’s home or other pages, through the site’s social media outlets (such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and other such sites or in MyAdventures’ newsletter).
Likewise, in keeping with the intent of the site, MyAdventures reserves the right to remove any content or information deemed inappropriate, as well as to revoke an individual's membership in the site and bar offenders from future memberships in the site. Any use of the site for illegal activities will be reported to the authorities.
