Terms of Use and Conditions for Community Website Submissions

Welcome to the Amplifier Community Website. These Terms of Use and Conditions are an Agreement between you, (“Artist” or “you” or “your”), and Amplifier (“Organization” or “us” or “we” or “our”). All references to the Organization in this Agreement shall include Organization’s affiliates and subsidiaries. By accessing or using our Services in any way, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not permitted to access or use our Services. Please read these Terms carefully, and feel free to contact us at info@amplifier.org if you have any questions.

Scope of this Agreement. This Agreement applies to any artwork, images, graphics, digital assets, or digital images created or taken by Artist and submitted to the Organization’s Website (collectively known as “Submission”). This Agreement governs the relationship between the parties and in no communication or other exchange, shall modify the terms of this Agreement unless agreed to in writing.

Privacy: For information about our privacy practices, please see our Privacy Policy, which can be viewed below. Our Privacy Policy is incorporated into and considered part of these Terms. By accessing or using our Services in any way, you agree that your information may be collected, stored, shared, processed, and used in accordance with our Privacy Policy and these Terms.

Artist agrees to the following terms for Artist’s Submission:

License: Artist grants to Organization and its affiliates and partners a non-exclusive, irrevocable, non-transferable, except as explicitly set out herein, worldwide license to use, promote, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute, and otherwise use Artist’s Submission in connection with the Organization’s Website.

Artist Rights: All Submissions and rights relating to them, including copyright and ownership rights in the media in which the Submissions are stored, remain the sole and exclusive property of the Artist. No other use of the Submission is granted without Artist’s express written consent.

Relationship of the Parties: The parties agree that neither Artist nor Artist’s employees or contract personnel are, or shall be deemed to be, employees or independent contractors of Organization. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Neither party is authorized to act as agent or bind the other party except as expressly stated in this Agreement. Artist and the Submission shall not be deemed a work for hire as defined under Copyright Law. All rights granted to Organization are contractual in nature and are expressly defined by this Agreement.

Representations and Warranties: Artist represents and warrants to the Organization that:
Artist is the owner and author of the Submission and has the right to grant the License.
The Submission is Artist’s original creation and does not include any material created by any third parties; that neither the Submission, nor the Organization’s use thereof, will infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights, or other intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation, or the violation of any contract to which Artist is a party.
Artist has all the necessary rights, consents, and authorizations required to license the Submission according to these Terms.
The content of the Submission is not abusive, obscene, pornographic, threatening, harassing, defamatory, unlawful, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive or otherwise objectionable in relation to the subject matter covered by the Submission or the purpose for which it is being submitted. The Organization may immediately reject the Submission if, in the Organization’s sole discretion, the Organization believes the Submission to be in violation of this representation.
That Artist is over the age of 13, or has the approval of a parent or legal guardian to submit the Submission according to these Terms. Please note that content on our Website covers a wide range of art and subject matter and may include visual or written material that some people may consider offensive or inappropriate for children and minors. If you allow your child or anyone else to use your computer or other device, it is solely your responsibility to prevent them from accessing any content that you think is or may be inappropriate for them.

Additional Rights We Retain: If you select a username or similar identifier for your account, we may change it if we believe it is appropriate or necessary (for example, if it infringes someone’s intellectual property or impersonates another user).

Indemnification: Artist acknowledges that the Organization is not responsible for, and has no liability for, any use of all or any part of the Submission. Artist agrees to hold harmless and release the Organization, along with its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, assigns, licensees and successors, from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action (collectively “claims”) that Artist, or any other persons acting on Artist’s behalf, whether now or in the future, relating to the use of the Submission, including without limitation, any claims of defamation, invasion of privacy, rights of publicity or copyright, or any other right Artist may have.

Termination: Organization may refuse to accept or transmit Submission for any reason. Organization may remove Submission from its Website for any reason. Artist may terminate relationship with Organization and withdraw the Submission at anytime by contacting info@amplifier.org. Organization will withdraw Submission within 14 days of receiving notice of Artist’s desire to withdraw Submission from the Website.

Severability: If one or more of the provisions in the Agreement is found invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. Any such provisions will be revised as required to make them enforceable.
Waiver: No action of either party, other than in writing agreed to by the parties, may be construed to waive any provision of this Agreement and a single or partial exercise by either party of any such action will not preclude further exercise of other rights or remedies in this Agreement.
