Any User Content will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. You must not post any User Content on or through the Platform or transmit to us any User Content that you consider to be confidential or proprietary. When you submit User Content through the Platform, you agree and represent that you own that User Content or that you have received all necessary permissions, clearances from, or are authorized by the owner of any part of the content to submit it to the Platform, to transmit it from the Platform to other third party platforms, and/or adopt any third-party content.
You or the owner of your User Content still own the copyright in User Content sent to us, but by submitting User Content via the Platform, you hereby grant us an unconditional, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully transferable, perpetual worldwide licence to use, modify, adapt, reproduce, make derivative works of, publish and/or transmit, and/or distribute. and to authorize other users of the Platform and other third parties to view, access, use, download, modify, adapt, reproduce, make derivative works of, publish, and/or transmit your User Content in any format and on any platform, either now known or hereinafter invented.
You further grant us a royalty-free license to use your user name, image, voice, and likeness to identify you as the source of any of your User Content.
To avoid any doubt, the rights granted in the preceding paragraphs of this Section include but are not limited to the right to reproduce images, video or sound recordings (and make mechanical reproductions of the works embodied in such assets), and publicly perform and communicate to the public these assets (and the works embodied therein), all on a royalty-free basis. This means that you are granting us the right to use your User Content without the obligation to pay royalties to any third party, including but not limited to, a copyright owner (e.g., publisher), any unions or guilds, and any engineers, producers or other royalty participants involved in the creation of User Content.
Through-To-The-Audience Rights. All of the rights you grant in your User Content in these Terms are provided on a through-to-the-audience basis, meaning the owners or operators of third-party services will not have any separate liability to you or any other third party for User Content posted or used on such third party service via the Platform.
Waiver of Rights to User Content. By posting User Content to or through the Platform, you waive any rights to prior inspection or approval of any marketing or promotional materials related to such User Content. You also waive any and all rights of privacy, publicity, or any other rights of a similar nature in connection with your User Content, or any portion thereof. To the extent any moral rights are not transferable or assignable, you hereby waive and agree never to assert any and all moral rights, or to support, maintain or permit any action based on any moral rights that you may have in or with respect to any User Content you post to or through the Platform.
We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any User Content posted or uploaded by you to our Platform constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.
We, or authorized third parties, reserve the right to cut, crop, edit, or refuse to publish your content at our or their sole discretion.

In addition, we have the right – but not the obligation – in our sole discretion to remove, disallow, block, or delete any User Content (i) that we consider to violate these Terms, or (ii) in response to complaints from other users or third parties, with or without notice and without any liability to you. As a result, we recommend that you save copies of any User Content that you post to the Platform on your personal device(s) in the event that you want to ensure that you have permanent access to copies of such User Content. We do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity, appropriateness, or quality of any User Content, and under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any User Content.
You control whether your User Content is made publicly available on the Platform to all other users of the Platform or only available to people you approve. To restrict access to your User Content, you should select the privacy setting available within the Platform.
We accept no liability with respect to any content submitted by users and published by us or by authorized third parties.
