Story Pages

Where we provide Story Pages to enable you to upload your Contribution, we will provide clear information to you of the identity of the company that has set up the Story, and any additional licence terms or privacy terms that may apply to your submission of Contribution. It is your responsibility to review and ensure you are happy to agree to the additional licence or privacy terms provided by the Story Page owner.

 

We are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Story Page we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Story Page by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not. 

 

We enable the company behind the Story Page to contact you via the Seenit platform. Your email address that you provide us is not shared with them, though you should read any other terms put in place via the Story Page as the operator of the page may include their own terms and conditions where you give them permission to contact you by other methods.

 

In addition to submitting your Contribution to the Story Page, you may also opt to include your Contribution in the Story Page owner’s ‘library’ where they may store the Contribution and use it in future Stories, not just the one you submitted it for. It is your choice whether you permit this.

Contribution Licence

 

We do not take ownership of any Contribution that you upload – ownership of your Contribution remains with you.

 

By uploading Contribution to the Seenit Platform, you grant us the right to make your Contribution available on the Seenit Platform to the Story Page owner.

 

Specifically, to achieve this, you grant us a worldwide, royalty free, sublicensable and transferable licence to  store, download, copy, stream, publicly perform and make your Contribution available on the Seenit Platform, including to the company that has set up a Story Page to which your Contribution is submitted, and with full rights to edit and modify your Contribution.

 

You also permit us the right to give the company or person that has set up the Story Page an irrevocable and perpetual, transferable, royalty free, right to download, copy, store, edit, modify, make available, publicly perform, stream and generally communicate to the public, broadcast, create derivative works, and otherwise use and exploit your Contribution without any restriction and throughout the world and in any and all media (and with the ability to sublicence any of these rights). This is so that the Story Page owner can use your Contribution as they see fit for a Story and for any other uses which they decide to make of the Contribution. 

 

The operator of the Story Page may include other licence terms on the Story page or other site which you may be required to agree which will also govern what they can do with your Contribution – either to expand upon or limit how they will use the Contribution.

 

You agree that we may edit and use clips of your Contribution in all media as part of the marketing of the Seenit Platform, and grant us royalty free, worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable licence (with full rights to grant sublicences) for this purpose. 

 

We may include the Seenit watermark in your Contribution.
