You represent and warrant that the use or other exploitation of such User Submissions by Company and use or other exploitation by users of the Site and Service as contemplated by this Agreement will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party, including without limitation any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
The above licenses granted by you in User Submissions you submit to the Service terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you delete your User Submission from the Service, unless your User Submission has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it. When you remove or delete User Submissions from the Service, you understand and agree, however, that Educreations may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your User Submissions that have been removed or deleted.
When you publish User Submissions using the public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Educreations, to access and use that content, and to associate it with you (i.e. your name and profile picture).
It is our goal for Educreations to be a safe, helpful educational community for everyone. In order to make this happen, we need your help, which includes the following commitments:
