Video Submission Terms

Version 1.1, 6th June 2018

We encourage you to submit video, images, sounds or live stream. But please don’t do anything horrible, rude or illegal. More specifically, please don’t post or upload anything that:

  • Is inappropriate (abusive, offensive or disruptive)
  • Contains personal information (either your own or someone else’s)
  • Puts children at risk
  • Is illegal, or glamorizes illegal activity
  • Is defamatory (damaging to someone else’s reputation)
  • Is in contempt of court (anything that could affect the outcome of a court case)
  • Infringes anyone’s rights (including privacy rights)
  • Was made by someone else, or that copies someone else’s creation
  • Is posted for your financial gain (advertising, sponsorship etc.)
  • Isn’t in English (unless we’ve asked you to comment in another language)
  • Contains spam (unless you’re commenting on a story about reconstituted meat)
  • Contains links to content that can’t be seen easily, or may be unsafe (viruses, spyware, paywalls etc.)

Please ensure that:

  • You own the copyright if whatever you post or upload is completely new and original. That usually means it doesn’t contain anyone else’s content, like videos and music.
  • For anything that contains content made by someone else, the copyright may belong to them. So you’ll usually need to get their permission before sharing it with Swann.

BY SUBMITTING THE VIDEO, IMAGES, SOUNDS AND/OR LIVE-STREAM (COLLECTIVELY, “VIDEO CONTENT”) YOU ARE ABOUT TO SUBMIT, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“SUBMISSION TERMS”).
