Terms of Use

General

Welcome to our website.

Sun Key Publishing publishes several websites on the Web where you can share your ideas, stories and experiences. Welcome to the "Sun Key Publishing community."

Our Websites are owned and managed by Sun Key Publishing (we, us or our). We have a common set of community rules or terms that all our community members and users of our Websites must adhere to at all times. These rules are set out in these Terms of Use.

The following is an agreement between Sun Key Publishing and its entities ("Sun Key Publishing", "us", "our" and "we"), and any person or other legal entity, ("you", "your", "user", or "account holder") who wishes to use the our website(s) or any mobile or other apps that we provide (together, the "Site", and together with the service provided on our website or through any mobile or other apps that we provide, the "Service"), whether as the holder of an account on the Site ("Member") or merely to browse the Site (Members and other users of the Site are collectively described in this agreement as "Users").

These terms apply to your access to, and use of, our Websites. If you continue to use these Websites or information provide to you from us you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by these terms or "Agreement".

If you are under the age of 18, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand it.

Your use of this website, including new features and enhancements to the website, is entirely conditioned on and subject to your compliance with this Agreement. If you do not agree with this Agreement, you should leave the Site and discontinue use of the services immediately.

These terms may be amended by us without notice from time to time. Amendments will be effective at the time the amended terms are posted on this Website. You are responsible for ensuring you are aware of the terms, so please check regularly for any updates.

You may not change, supplement or amend this Agreement in any manner.

Your use of this Website

You agree not to use this Website to:

Content Contributed to the Site by Members

The Site allows users to create their own stories by assembling Content available on the Site, and to share those stories through the Site with other Users. The Site also allows users to supply their Content for our and our Users’ use in connection with the Service. In this Agreement we refer to all of this Content provided by Users as "User Content".

In order for us to make the User Content you contribute available on the Site for these purposes, and to operate, market and promote the Service, we need the right to make use of such User Content in accordance with and subject to this Agreement.

Therefore, by contributing User Content to the Site or creating it on the Site you automatically grant to us an irrevocable and perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully-paid, royalty-free worldwide license, by ourselves or with others, to use, copy, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, print, publish, republish, excerpt (in whole or in part), reformat, translate, modify, revise and incorporate into other works, that User Content and any works derived from that User Content, in any form of media or expression, in the manner in which the site from time to time permits User Content to be used, and to license or permit others to do so.

This license also grants us the right to sublicense that User Content to other Users to permit their use of that User Content in the manner in which the Service from time to time permits User Content to be used.

We may from time to time change the manner in which User Content can be used by the Service, and if we do so any license you have granted to us in this Agreement that shall automatically be extended to new uses permitted by this site, and any licenses previously granted to us for uses no longer permitted by this site shall continue in accordance with this Agreement. If you contribute User Content to the Site, it is your responsibility to check the Site from time to time to review how we permit User Content to be used.

A Permitted Use is any use of Content permitted by this Agreement or the Service. For example, if at the time of your termination any User Content you have contributed to the Site is used by us, or has been printed by a user for their personal use, or is used by us in promotional materials, those uses may continue until they cease. In particular, if at the time of your termination your User Content has been sublicensed by us to a third party for publication and distribution in print, that sublicense, printing, distribution and sale of printed materials may continue until it terminates according to the terms of our agreement with the third party, and all such printed materials have been sold. We may retain a copy of the applicable User Content for archival purposes. Finally, if your use of the Site or this Agreement terminates for any reason, or Content is removed from the Site, your license hereunder to use the Content or the removed Content, as the case may be, terminates immediately.

We reserves the right to remove Content from the Site at any time, without notice, for any reason, or for no reason, in its sole discretion.

You represent and warrant to us that (a) you are the sole owner, author and copyright owner of User Content you contribute to the Site or you have written permission from the author, owner or copyright owner to make such User Content available to the Service as "User Content", and (b) such User Content does not infringe upon any third party rights (including but not limited to any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, other intellectual property rights, moral rights, privacy rights or publicity rights); (c) such User Content complies with this Agreement and does not contain any defamatory, libelous or obscene material; (d) such User Content does not violate any applicable laws, regulations, or contain any false statements or misrepresentations; and (e) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person, or the owner/author of any objects or work in such User Content to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person, object or work, to enable inclusion and use of such User Content in the manner contemplated by the Service and this Agreement.
