If you wish to view a blog or add UCC then you must adhere to these terms and any specific rules posted on the blog. Ownership of the UCC material posted in a blog or we publish on the Site will remain with you. However, you agree that if you post UCC to a blog then you are granting us a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free licence to publish, re-use, archive, modify, delete or commercially exploit that UCC in whole or in part in our complete discretion, whether on the Site or otherwise, without any requirement to pay you for this and with or without attribution to you.
Notwithstanding this licence, we are under no obligation to use any UCC posted by you. You also waive any moral rights that you may have in regard to the UCC.

- post or publish only original UCC on the Site and will not infringe the intellectual property or other rights of any third party when publishing UCC.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UCC containing any form of advertising or promotion for goods and services or any spam or other form of unsolicited communication.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UCC with recommendations which constitute financial advice.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UCC that is threatening, abusive, defamatory, indecent or otherwise unlawful.

- not collect, harvest, trace or store other users’ personal information.
- not restrict or prevent any other user from using the blog.

We are not able to continually monitor all UCC posted to the Site but where we have actually been notified notice of any UCC that is potentially misleading, untrue, offensive, unlawful, infringes third party rights or is potentially in breach of these terms and conditions, then we reserve the right to review that UCC, determine whether to delete it from the Site and act accordingly. If you consider that any UCC published on the Site infringes any of your person’s legal rights or is not permissible under these terms and conditions, please advise us immediately with full details by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
