This Section of the Terms and Conditions shall apply to you only if you are registered as an author of the Guides.
You can simply register as an author by filling in, in your settings, details marked as required for the payment of share in proceeds from the sale of Guides. Users who did not fill in such details or who filled in incomplete or incorrect details are not deemed to be authors.
You will be free to create Guides even if not registered as author; however, you will not be entitled to a share in proceeds from their sale. If you register as an author on a later date, you will not be entitled to receive a share in proceeds from the sale of those Guides that were created by you prior to your registration as an author.
Should your author registration details prove to be inaccurate or not up-to-date, we will send you an e-mail asking you to fill in complete or updated details. If you fail to correct or update the details within 14 days of our e-mail, you will lose your author status and no more shares in proceeds will be credited to your account. We will renew your author status on your request after your details have been completed or updated, as necessary.

Creation and Sale of Guides
A ‘Guide’ shall mean a set of interconnected information blocks. A ‘block’ is made up of information that take the form of text, picture or route map. Each block in a Guide may be authored by a different person. Each block is a copyrighted work, where the copyright is held by its author.
When you create blocks, you as author agree to only provide information that you have yourself checked are true, and to only insert in such blocks such drawings, texts or other copyrighted works that have been created by you or to which you possess sufficient authorisations from a person holding copyright to such works.
In exchange for a fee set out in Section 2.2.4, you grant to the Operator an exclusive licence to blocks created by you, such exclusive licence is unlimited in time, place and matter and good for any use of the work, in particular for its duplication, dissemination by sale, lease or otherwise, alterations, modifications, contribution to a collective work, use for creation of new works or in any other manner compliant with applicable laws. The Operator shall be free to grant sub-licences to third parties, or to transfer or assign this licence to a third party.
All created blocks are available free of any charge on the climbersroutes.com portal in free Guides to be used solely in an on-line form and without a print-friendly formatting. All Guides available free of charge will be displayed with a “Donate” or “Darovať” button that will enable users to donate an amount of their choice to the use of such Guide.
The Operator shall transform the created blocks into a formatted PDF file or into printed Guide offered by the Operator to users for purchase in the e-shop. As an author, you are entitled to share in proceeds from such sale of Guides in the amount set out in the next Section 2.2.4.
Provízia a platobné podmienky
The author shall have the right to receive remuneration, calculated as a share in proceeds from the sale of a Guide that contains a block created by such author, at the rate of 66% of the price of the block. Individual block prices will be set by the Operator.
The author shall have the same share in any amounts donated by users using the “Donate” or “Darovať” button.
The author will be entitled to a share in proceeds only in respect of those paid Guides that have been properly purchased and in respect of which payment was properly made and no complaint was raised. The shares in proceeds from sale are calculated automatically after the payment for a Guide was received, and shall be paid on payment dates after reaching an amount set by the relevant author in their settings that may, however, not be less than 20 euros.
