Terms and Security
Last updated: 6th January 2016
Your Intellectual Property
Our full terms are below, but there is one section of them which concerns most of our users, and that is ownership of your work. To be clear (and this is included below), you own your own work, entirely and without question. You maintain copyright and all other intellectual property rights over your work. We will always seek prior written consent if we would like to use any of your work for any reason (for example, in our marketing materials) and you are under no obligation to allow us to do so.
If you have any questions about this, or any of our terms and conditions, please get in touch.
