These are described in paragraph 3.15. of these Terms.

ZIPO respects the intellectual property of others and we expect our users to do the same. If you repeatedly infringe other people’s rights, ZIPO reserves the right to terminate your account.

If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated or your work was copied in a manner that constitutes copyright infringement, please contact us at copyright@weekoflife.com.

3.9 You accept that after being submitted, your user submissions will become public in all sections of the Website except for the Last Added section. The Editorial Board reviews all submitted content to determine whether it is not in violation of these Terms, in particular Art. 4.1 q.

a) The Editorial Board will remove submissions that violate these Terms.

b) The Editorial Board will flag submissions as age-restricted according to Art. 3.10.-3.12. of these Terms.

Submissions appear in the Last Added section only after being reviewed by the Editorial Board. You understand that this revision process is necessary for an effective and safe functioning of the website and primarily benefits you and other members.

3.10 Some user submissions may not violate these Terms but may not be appropriate for everyone. Such user submissions will be age-restricted. The Editorial Board will flag such submissions as age-restricted while reviewing them. You may also do so yourself before submitting the submission. Other users will also have an option to suggest flagging some submissions as age-restricted ; the Editorial Board will either affirm this suggestion and flag such submission or dismiss this indication.

3.11 Age-restricted submissions will not be available for unregistered users. They will only be available for registered users, who are furthermore older than 18 years. When a user attempts to access such submission, a warning screen will be displayed informing the user that it is age-restricted content and that user must be logged in.

a) Sexually suggestive content

b) Nudity

c) Actual violence or very graphic fictional violence

d) Disturbing imagery in an appropriate content (with documentary value)

3.13 The Editorial Board will be very careful in approving User Submissions that feature predominantly these aspects more than anything else to make sure that these were not in fact the primary goal of these submissions. The goal is is to allow users to document life uncensored while at the same time protecting minors. User submissions, whose primary intention is clearly pornographic, hateful, or threatening will not be allowed by the editorial board. ZIPO reserves the right to decide in these matters.

This limited license does not grant ZIPO the right to sell or otherwise distribute your Content outside of the Services. After you remove your Content from the Website we will cease distribution as soon as practicable, and at such time when distribution ceases, the license will terminate. The license you grant to ZIPO is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Content to anyone else in addition to ZIPO), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that ZIPO is not required to pay you for the use on the Services of the Content that you submit), sublicensable (so that ZIPO is able to use its affiliates, subcontractors and other partners such as Internet content delivery networks and wireless carriers to provide the Services), and worldwide.

3.16 This limited license includes ZIPO's right to use User Submissions or their part for promotion of the Week of Life project, solely in articles about in print and electronic media.

3.17 With the exception of User Submissions (Content), all other content on the Website including, without limitation, the text, software, scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos and interactive features on the Website is either owned by or licensed to ZIPO, and is subject to copyright, trade mark rights, and other intellectual property rights of ZIPO or ZIPO 's licensors (collectively called "ZIPO Content" in this document). Any third party trade or service marks present on the ZIPO Content are trade or service marks of their respective owners.
