Contribution Terms of Service

By submitting your contribution, you grant a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to The Waldorf Astoria Archive to preserve, reproduce, and distribute your work. This permission includes the right to modify your material to conform to the goals of the archive, to reformat it as necessary to preserve its perceptibility and usefulness, and to make it available for educational, research, and promotional purposes outside of the archive, in perpetuity and in all media formats. This license does not authorize exploitation of your contribution for profit or commercial use.

Material you submit must have been created by you, wholly original, and shall not be copied from or based upon any other photographic, literary, or other material, except to the extent that such material is in the public domain, or you have permission of the copyright owner, or its use is allowed by "Fair Use" as prescribed by the terms of United States copyright law (cf. Title 17 of the U.S. Code).

In granting this permission, you warrant that you are 18 years of age or older and have the full power and authority to consent to this agreement, that your submission does not infringe any existing copyright or contain any libelous matter, nor invade any third party rights of privacy or publicity. You further agree to defend and hold harmless the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Hilton Worldwide, its board of trustees, and its officers, employees, and agents against all claims, demands, costs, and expenses including attorney's fees incurred for any and all claims of copyright infringement or any other legal or regulatory course of action arising from the use of your material.
