Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us — and other Platform users — certain legal permissions, listed in sections 7.4 - 7.6. These license grants apply to Your Content. If you upload Content that already comes with a license granting Mindfire the permissions we need as set out in these Terms of Use, no additional license is required.

We own all right, title, and interest in and to the User-Generated Content. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally transfer and assign any and all of your title in and to the User-Generated Content worldwide and upon first request by us execute and deliver all documents necessary to effect such transfer. If a transfer and assignment are not possible according to applicable law, you grant us the rights in section 7.4.

We may freely and irrevocably use and dispose User-Generated Content. Our rights comprise all current and future purposes of use, including application for and prosecution of intellectual property rights, use, exploitation, production of copies, offering, transfer, distribution, dissemination, making available, publication, disposal, alteration and creation of derivative works. The costs of the assignment and transfer of title will be borne by us.

It is conceivable that User-Generated Content created by you may accrue to third parties (such as your employer or your education institution, or the like e.g. employed professional researcher) by rule of law or as per a pre-existing employment contract, applicable regulations of an institution, and the like, unless you and the third-party expressly agree otherwise. You shall ensure that this is not the case before participating on the Platform. We are entitled to request you to provide a written waiver on the part of such third parties with regard to User-Generated Content created by you in connection with activities as part of the participation on the Platform. We have the right to remove User-Generated Content created by you or close your Account. License Grant to Us

We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, share it and use it to exploit the intellectual property registrations together with the User-Generated Content.

You hereby grant us an unlimited, non-exclusive, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable and fully paid up right to use Your Content in connection with the Platform and Submissions and register as well as exploit intellectual property rights included in User-Generated Content that contains Your Content, and make incidental copies as necessary. You shall not grant any third parties any rights that might affect this right of us. In particular, you shall only transfer, assign or license Your Content to third parties if this right of Mindfire is adequately safeguarded.

If the proper execution of your obligations under these Terms of Use require any third party consents, third party licenses or third party assignments (e.g. from your employer or your educational institution, or the like), you shall ensure that you comply with your obligations under these Terms of Use and that we are able to execute our rights under these Terms of Use at no additional cost. License Grant to Other Users

Moral Rights

You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you upload, publish, or submit to the Platform, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in section 6.
