(a) As a Studio User you may both upload Content to the Stellar Platform and edit Content on the Stellar Platform. You may use the Stellar Platform as you deem necessary but solely for the purpose of creating or uploading Content, as applicable, for the business purpose of our Customer and enabling Contributors to submit Content to one of your Uploader Pages. You may also use and edit the Content (subject applicable laws) in accordance with any licence terms that have been added to the relevant Uploader Page. The Content may be edited by you within the Seenit Studio, including editing using the Seenit Media, so that you can create Edited Content for the Customer’s own communication channels, including but not limited to the Customer’s social media pages, website, intranet or YouTube account.

(b) As a Contributor you may upload Content to an Uploader Page on the Stellar Platform but cannot review any other person’s content nor make any changes to an Uploader Page;

Except as expressly stated in these Terms, these Terms do not grant you any rights to such Intellectual Property Rights. “Seenit” is a trademark of Seeint and you are not permitted to use it without our approval.

4. Uploading Content on the Stellar Platform

4.1 Additional Terms. Where we provide Uploader Pages to enable you to upload your Content, we will provide clear information to you of the identity of the company that has set up the Uploader Page, and any additional licence terms or privacy terms that may apply to your submission of Content. It is your responsibility to review and ensure you are happy with and agree to such additional terms before your upload your Content. Any such terms are provided by our Customer and we do not have any control over them.

4.2 Monitoring. We are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Uploader Page we provide on the Stellar Platform, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Uploader Page by a user in contravention of our Content Standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

4.3 Contact information. We enable the company behind the Uploader Page to contact you via Stellar 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 Uploader 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. 

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

4.5 Content Licence. We do not take ownership of any Content that you upload – ownership of your Content remains with you. By uploading Content to the Stellar Platform, you grant us the right to make your Content available on the Stellar Platform to the Uploader Page owner. Specifically, to achieve this, you:

(a) grant us a worldwide, royalty free, sublicensable and transferable licence to store, download, copy, stream, publicly perform and make your Content available on Stellar Platform, including to the company that has set up a Uploader Page to which your Content is submitted, and with full rights to edit and modify your Content;

(b) permit us the right to give the company or person that has set up the Uploader 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 Content 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 Uploader Page owner can use your Content as they see fit for a Story and for any other uses which they decide to make of the Content;

(c) to the extent permissible by applicable law, waive your moral rights in your Content, such that neither we nor our licensees do not need to credit you unless we or they choose to do so, and nor will you object to any edit or modification of your Content; and

(d) agree that we may edit and use clips of your Content in all media as part of the marketing of Stellar 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 Content.

4.6 You warrant  that you own or have obtained valid licences, consents, permissions and rights to use, and where necessary to license to us, any Content you upload to the Stellar Platform; and our possession and use in accordance with these Terms of any Content (including third-party content) uploaded by you to the Stellar Platform shall not cause us to infringe the rights, including any Intellectual Property Rights, of a third party and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty.
