Agreement to Share your Story or other Content
Thank you for your interest in sharing your Story or other content.
This Agreement provides the terms and conditions for submitting content to the Project Open Voice (“POV”) sites and Everyblock, as well as Comcast-owned and operated websites and other services based on the POV platform (the “POV Services”).
Ownership of Your Story; Your Responsibilities
When you share your Story with Comcast through the POV Services, Comcast does not claim ownership of your Story or any related materials you submit. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Comcast has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any material that you create, transmit, or display, and for the consequences of your actions (including any loss or damages Comcast may suffer) because of the material you submit or share with Comcast or these projects.
You agree that any post, recording, or communication you submit will not violate the rights of anyone else, and will not (i) include content that violates a third party’s copyright or other proprietary or privacy rights; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations, presented as facts; (iii) include advertising or solicitations; or (iv) submit any material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or violate any law, or that is otherwise inappropriate.
You understand that Comcast does not accept content from children under 13. When you submit content to the POV Services, you represent and warrant that you are 13 years of age or older. Teachers, if you submit content from a class that includes children under 13, you understand that you may not include personally identifiable information of these children, including full name, address, or email address.
No Guarantee of Distribution
When you submit material to the POV Service you understand and agree that there is no guarantee it will be used in any future websites, publications, broadcasts, books, or other compilations.
Grant of License
When you submit your Story, report, or comment (“Your Contribution”), you grant Comcast and its licensees a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive right to use, reproduce, publicly display, publicly perform, modify, sublicense, and distribute Your Contribution and all or part of the content it includes, on or in connection with the POV Services. You permit Comcast to incorporate your Contribution in other works, including but not limited to websites, video and audio recordings distributed in any way, books, ebooks, and other publications, in whole or in part, in any manner.
If you remove content from a website, the license for Comcast to continue reproducing, displaying, and performing the content on that specific website will terminate, but you understand and agree that Comcast is not able to delete your Contribution from compilations that have already been created. These compilations may already have been distributed to other people, and users who have received copies of your Contribution may retain them in whole or in part.
Comcast reserves the right, but does not have the obligation, to review, correct or modify Your Contribution prior to displaying or distributing it, using automated tools or manual processes. Comcast may refuse to display, or remove, any user Contribution from the POV Services for any reason in our sole discretion. However, we will typically do so only if we become aware that the material in question is harmful, clearly illegal, or likely to be considered highly offensive or objectionable to a large segment of our users.
