In consideration of allowing Us to use the Creator’s Work as defined herein and under the terms and conditions set forth below, the Creator’s Work could be featured by Lafayette Travel or its affiliate EatLafayette.

By Entering into and Accepting this Licensing Agreement, the Creator Represents and Warrants to Us that:
PLEASE DO NOT ENTER INTO OR ACCEPT THIS LICENSING AGREEMENT IF THE CREATOR DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS TO THE CREATOR’S WORK(S), OR IF ACCEPTING THIS OFFER WOULD VIOLATE ANY PERSON, ORGANIZATION, OR ENTITY’S RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS.
