Uploaded content belongs to you
When you click “use” on the Chirp app, the selected content is uploaded to our servers. This content is yours, but to be able for us to use and store the content we need to be granted certain rights. By using the app you grant us a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide licence to use any uploaded content solely in the context of Chirp promotions. We will not sell, distribute, re-license or lease your content to third parties unless we have your explicit permission.
When you click “use” on the Chirp app, you also agree not to chirp copyrighted, malicious, obscene or pornographic material.
You may need us to delete uploaded content for some reason. If this is the case, we need to be able to identify the content, and that the content in question belongs to you. If you are logged in when you uploaded the content, we can track the content and delete it from our servers. If you are not logged in, you will need to prove to us that you uploaded the content before we can delete it. In either case, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
The licence granted above ends when we delete the content.
Chirped content is semi-public
While chirped content and associated URLS are not tagged or made available for indexing by search engines such as Google, when you “chirp” content using the Chirp app, be aware that the application is explicitly designed for simple, non-addressed sharing: your content may be received by anyone using the Chirp app within audible range.
As with posting images onto the public web, please take care not to share content you do not wish to be reshared. Your content may also be shared or re-chirped by any recipients of that “chirp”and may be shared by those users onto other social networks with which Chirp has no existing agreements.
