CONTENT ON JOINDESIGN
Your content is yours. JoinDesign does not claim any ownership rights in the Content that you, other users, or third parties post on or through the JoinDesign Services (collectively "User Content" ).
THE RIGHTS YOU GRANT TO JOINDESIGN
By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through the JoinDesign Services, you grant to JoinDesign a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, worldwide, sublicenseable, transferable, limited license to use, modify, delete, add to, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and translate that Content, including without limitation distributing, through multiple tiers, part or all of the Site in any media formats through any media channels for any purposes.
SAVING AND SHARING
The JoinDesign Services allow you to (1) keep Content private from the community by only saving to your Gallery, (2) share your Content with the JoinDesign Community by uploading it to JoinDesign, or (3) share your Content with third-party services like Instagram, Facebook, and others.
Content you keep private
When you post to JoinDesign but do not share publicly, your Content is not madeavailable to the JoinDesign community or to third parties. However, if the image has been uploaded to JoinDesign, our staff is able to see it. We endeavor to keep your private Content private, but please keep in mind that no technology is 100% secure, and it is possible that unauthorized third parties could defeat our security measures and access your private Content. Please note that if you make Content public and later switch it to private or delete it, we may not be able to remove it from the JoinDesign Services
Content you share with the JoinDesign community
When you post to the JoinDesign community, your Content is made available to the public. This typically means that anyone who is following your account can see it, as well as anyone who searches for the hashtag(s) with which you label the Content. It also means that your Content might be featured in our apps or website, or appear in our emails or other communications.
Content you share with third parties
When you share your Content through a third-party service that is integrated with the JoinDesign Services (such as Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter), you authorize us to deliver the Content (or a version that we've modified, as needed) to that third-party service. This means that the third-party service's handling of your Content will be subject to its own agreement with you, for which we are not responsible.
Hashtags and co-creation
Most hashtags are descriptive of Content, but some hashtags have developed meaning within the JoinDesign community. For example, the hashtag #freetoedit means that the user is irrevocably allowing other users to duplicate, create, and distribute derivative works of the tagged Content – this fosters a community of co-creators that work collaboratively. Also, we occasionally run promotions that users enter using various hashtags that change the nature of the license you grant in Content. JoinDesign does not guarantee that promotions will receive proper marketing that votes and tallies are accurate, or be reported properly.
Stickers
Stickers as part of your Content are yours and JoinDesign does not claim any ownership rights. You may delete any of your Stickers anytime, however, if you have applied any of your Stickers on an image and posted it out to JoinDesign Community, those Stickers will stay on service. Please also note, that when you post any Sticker to the JoinDesign Community or send it via messaging system, you irrevocably consent to extend the rights for the Stickers' use by the JoinDesign Community under the "free to edit" terms, as defined above.
