What are Werkey's rights to user-published content?
This article forms part of Werkey's Policies and Terms. For more details on these policies, click here.
The user retains ownership of the content he or she publishes on our platform, including the courses. We are allowed to share the user's content with anyone through any medium, including promoting it through advertising on other sites.
Content published as a student or content provider (including courses) remains with the user. By publishing courses and other content, the user allows Werkey to reuse and share it, but the user will not lose any ownership rights they may have over the content. If you are a content provider, it is up to you to understand the license terms of the course detailed in the Instructor's Terms.
By posting content, comments, questions and ratings, and by sending us ideas and suggestions for new features or improvements, you authorize Werkey to use and share this content with anyone, to distribute and promote it on any platform and in any media, and to make such changes or edits as we deem appropriate.
In legal language, by submitting or publishing content on or through the platforms, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute the content in any media or method of distribution (now existing or developed further). This includes making your content available to other companies, organizations or individuals partnering with Werkey for membership, media transmission, distribution or publication of the content in other media, and the use of your content for marketing purposes. You also waive any rights of privacy, publicity, or any other rights of a similar nature to all such uses, as permitted by applicable law. The user declares and guarantees to possess all rights, powers and authority necessary to authorize us to use any content you submit. The user also agrees to all these forms of use of the content without implying the receipt of any compensation.
