Please note, we may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized to submit such request.

If we are not able to provide the requested information or make the change you requested, you will be provided with the reasons for such decisions. If you are located in the state of Colorado, you may have the right to appeal our decision by contacting us at [email protected].

YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE CONTENT IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. NO ADVICE OR CONTENT OBTAINED BY YOU FROM OR THROUGH THE SITE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.

YOUR DOWNLOADING OF ANY CONTENT FROM OR THROUGH THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK. WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY SUCH MATERIAL.

10. Limitation of Damages

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, SHALL CPR, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, AND ITS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SHAREHOLDERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RELEASED PARTIES”), BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY CLAIMING THROUGH YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES THAT MAY ARISE FROM OR RESULT FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE AND THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION USE OF OR RELIANCE ON CONTENT AVAILABLE ON THE SITE, INTERRUPTIONS, ERRORS, DEFECTS, MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, DELETIONS OF FILES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, NONDELIVERY OF CONTENT, DISCLOSURE OF COMMUNICATIONS, OR LOSS OR DAMAGE DUE TO VIRUSES THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, DATA OR OTHER PROPERTY, OR ANY OTHER FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE.

THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY THAT APPLIES TO ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, GENERAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF INCOME OR LOSS OF PROFITS), WHETHER THE CLAIM IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF CPR OR ANOTHER RELEASED PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND WITHOUT REGARD TO THE SUCCESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER REMEDIES.

IF ANY PART OF THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID, ILLEGAL OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE RELEASED PARTIES UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES TO YOU OR ANY PERSON OR ENTITY CLAIMING THROUGH YOU FOR LIABILITIES THAT OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE BEEN LIMITED WILL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($100.00). YOU AGREE THAT WE WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THESE TERMS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

NOTHING IN THESE TERMS WILL LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES WHICH MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

11. Release and Indemnity

YOU HEREBY RELEASE AND WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND/OR LIABILITY AGAINST CPR AND/OR THE MEMBER STATIONS, AND ITS AND/OR THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, ASSIGNS, USERS, CUSTOMERS, PROVIDERS, LICENSEES, AND SUCCESSORS IN INTEREST (“INDEMNIFIED PARTIES”), ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE. YOU ALSO AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS, THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR LIABILITY, INCLUDING COSTS AND ATTORNEYS FEES, ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE, YOUR BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTY, OR OTHER PROVISION IN THESE TERMS, OR FAILURE TO ABIDE BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Any modifications will be effective 24 hours after posting through the Site or delivery of such other notice. You must cease using the Site or terminate these Terms at any time if you do not agree to any changes. Continuing to use the Site after a change has been made will signify your acceptance of the changes. You should refer back to this page for future updates. Whenever we do change these Terms, we will also change the “effective date” at the bottom of these Terms.

13. Additional Terms

14. Use of Third Party Content on the Site

Content owned by third party content publishers, such as text, photo, graphic, audio and/or video material, shall not be published, broadcast, rewritten for broadcast or publication or redistributed directly or indirectly in any medium. Neither these third party materials nor any portion thereof may be stored in a computer except for personal and non-commercial use. Users may not download or reproduce a substantial portion of the third party material found on this Site. Those third parties, such as the Associated Press, will not be held liable for any delays, inaccuracies, errors or omissions therefrom or in the transmission or delivery of all or any part thereof or for any damages arising from any of the foregoing.

15. General Information

  • Right to Modify or Discontinue This Site. We reserve the right at any time to modify or temporarily or permanently discontinue this Site or the Services (or any part thereof) with or without notice, and we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of this Site. 
  • Age Eligibility. This Site is intended for use by users who are 16 years of age or older. We do not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from persons under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from persons under 13 through our services, we will take appropriate steps to delete this information in accordance with CPR’s Privacy Policy.
  • Use of Terms. Words and phrases used in these Terms have the definition given in these Terms or, if not defined herein, have their plain English meaning as commonly interpreted in the United States. As used in these Terms, the term “including” means “including, but not limited to.” Section headings are for reference purposes only.
  • Entire Agreement. The Terms constitutes the entire agreement between you and CPR and governs your use of the Site, superseding any prior version of these Terms between you and CPR with respect to the Site.
  • Conflicts. Some of the Content in the Site may now or in the future be made available under the specific terms of a license agreement. Where any matter contained in these Terms or elsewhere on the Site may be read so as to alter, amend or supersede any part of such license agreement, then the license agreement shall be taken to be the definitive and over-ruling part of these Terms.
  • Choice of Law and Forum. You and CPR each agree that the Terms and the relationship between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to its conflict of law provisions and that any and all claims, causes of action or disputes (regardless of theory) arising out of or relating to the Terms, or the relationship between you and CPR, shall be brought exclusively in the courts located in Denver, Colorado. You and CPR agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Denver County, and agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.
  • Statute of Limitations. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of this Site or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred to the extent permitted by applicable law.
  • Waiver. Our failure at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms or to exercise any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of such provision or such right. All waivers must be in writing and signed in ink by the party to be bound. Unless the written waiver contains an express statement to the contrary, no waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms or of any right provided for herein will be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provision, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right under these Terms.
  • Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions, and the court will substitute for such provision a valid and enforceable provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of such provision. The remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
  • Relationship of the Parties. The parties hereto are independent parties, not agents, employees or employers of the other, or joint ventures, and neither acquires hereunder any right or ability to bind or enter into any obligation on behalf of the other. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. We may freely assign these Terms.
