4. Content Agreement and Submission
FOR SUBMISSIONS THAT ARE TO BE USED BY THE CHURCH, ITS AFFILIATED ENTITIES, AND OTHERS
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the “Church”) has given individuals the opportunity to submit content including writings, photos, artwork, text, video recordings, audio recordings, music (such as sheet music, lyrics, tunes, musical recordings, etc.), and other content in response to requests for such materials from the Church for consideration and possible use by the Church. You have expressed a desire to voluntarily provide such content, but to do so you must agree as follows:
You understand and agree that if you submit any writing, photo, artwork, text, video recording, audio recording, music, or any other material ("Submission" or “Submissions”), at any time, you grant to Intellectual Reserve, Inc. and its licensees, successors, assigns, and affiliated entities (collectively, “IRI”) the right to publish and use the Submission. Additionally, you hereby grant to IRI a royalty-¬free, irrevocable, worldwide, and non-exclusive, transferable license to use your Submission throughout the universe in perpetuity, and to reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display, sublicense, sell, and to incorporate the Submission (in whole or in part) in other works, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you also waive forever and throughout the universe, any and all so called “moral rights” you may now or hereafter have in and to your Submission and to each and every part thereof for any and all now known or hereafter existing uses, media, and/or forms. You further agree that while IRI is under no obligation to provide you with credit for the Submission, IRI may, at its sole discretion, distribute your name and other personal information, as provided by you, in connection with the Submission. You also authorize IRI to edit your Submission for grammar, spelling and content.
You understand that IRI maintains membership and related records containing personal information about you which may include, but is not limited to: your name, age, address, Church membership status, and location of Church membership. IRI uses this information to help administer the use of the Submissions. You further grant IRI permission to collect and process additional limited personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your e-mail address, one or more photographs of you, and other personal information you might choose to provide. This personal information is collected to allow IRI to identify and contact you regarding the Submission and to publish such content. You hereby consent to this collection, use, processing, disclosure, and transfer of your personal information for the purposes described above.
You acknowledge that IRI is not obligated to use your Submission in any form. While IRI acknowledges that you shall continue to own all copyright to your Submission, subject to the licenses and rights granted herein, you acknowledge and agree that you will not have any right, title, or interest in or to any work, publication, or material that is produced by IRI and which contains all or a portion of your Submission. You agree that you have not and will not sell or license any part of your Submission in a way that would impair or restrict IRI from fully using the licenses or rights you have granted herein.
You are under no obligation to provide a Submission. Additionally, you will not receive any compensation for any Submission, for the licenses or rights granted herein, or for any waiver or any grant of additional rights as outlined herein. You agree that IRI’s review of your Submission for possible use is adequate consideration for the rights and licenses granted in this agreement.
You warrant that you will not submit any material that is prohibited by law in any applicable jurisdiction or to which you do not have the right to grant the licenses and rights set forth herein. You also warrant that the licenses and rights granted herein do not conflict with the rights (including, but not limited to, the copyrights, trademark rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, etc.) of any other person or legal entity or with your obligations thereto. Additionally, you warrant that you are 18 years old or older and that you have capacity to enter into this agreement.
You warrant that you consent to IRI’s collection and use of your Submission and personal information; you agree to indemnify IRI for any liabilities associated with later acts by you or others in connection with this agreement and/or the Submission; and you acknowledge and agree that you will be bound by all provisions contained in this agreement. You further agree that you shall have no claim of any kind or nature against IRI based on the exercise of any licenses, rights, waivers, or releases granted hereunder.
The terms of this agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without regard to its conflict of law provisions, and you agree that any disagreement arising from or related to this agreement, which we cannot resolve through discussions, shall be settled exclusively in the courts located within the County of Salt Lake, Utah, United States of America. If any provision of this agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the agreement remain in full force and effect. You agree that in the event of any dispute regarding this agreement or your Submission, you will be limited to your remedies at law for damages and will not be entitled to terminate or rescind this agreement, or to seek equitable or injunctive relief, or to enjoin, restrain, or otherwise interfere with the exercise of any of the licenses, rights, and releases granted herein.
