USER CONTENT LICENSE GRANT
Again, we do not claim ownership of your content, but by posting any User Content on the Platform, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant, to UNUM a royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, non-exclusive, worldwide license (a) to use your User Content to deliver the Platform to you such as to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content including your or any third-party name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed (a.k.a. all the current features as well as all new features and services coming to you!), for use in connection with the Platform and UNUM's (and its successors' and affiliates') business, (b) including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Platform (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels (bringing more awareness to our amazing and talented members, their stories, our community, and the Platform that helped play a small part in it. Like every family, we cannot help but brag about how talented you all are!). You can withdraw the license described in clause (b) above by providing us a notice at firstname.lastname@example.org (please allow 90 days for such requests to be processed - we're a small but mighty team and have to wear a lot of hats so we appreciate your patience in advance!). The license granted under clause (a) may not be revoked by you (otherwise we wouldn't be able to perform our contract with you and give you the best possible Platform and Service experience this world has ever known!), except if you delete your account and remove the applicable User Content from the Platform (please reach out to us beforehand so we can help with any misunderstanding, we're a fun group and here to help).
If the features of the Platform allow you to remove or delete User Content from the Platform, the above licenses granted by you in your User Content terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete such User Content from the Platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand and agree that UNUM may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of User Content that have been removed or deleted; provided that in certain cases, such as if User Content has been curated by UNUM for display on UNUM's Platform, featured on the UNUM channels, included in printed content, or otherwise used, the above licenses granted by you with respect to such User Content will not terminate and such User Content may continue to be used, displayed, distributed, and performed indefinitely. The above licenses granted by you in User Content for which the Platform does not provide you a means to delete or remove are perpetual and irrevocable. (Again, we're a dedicated and passionate group of creative people who are here to help and work through any misunderstandings).
Overview: We need to perform our services and contract with you. When you upload your Content, you grant us a license to use that content to provide our services and promote UNUM's businesses (for example, show your photos, tell your story, allow us to resize if need be for your screen size, feature you in the new features, etc.). These terms are standard by many companies (see any of your favorite or popular social media networks, software tools, social media scheduling platforms, etc.). We like to set the standard, so we went the extra mile and let you opt out of the UNUM business User License Grant clause, like member featuring, promotions, adverts, spotlights, etc. NDB. We like to think we're the unsung hero in these usually boring to read Terms and Conditions lol.
