User Contributions Policy
Effective January 1, 2023
Worksome’s Platform contains interactive features such as messaging, boards, chat windows, personal user profiles, and notification center that allow users to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit content or materials to other Users (collectively, “User Contributions”) on or through the Platform. All User Contributions must comply with the terms of this policy. We created this policy to explain the content standards for User Contributions.
Any User Contribution posted on the Platform is non-confidential and non-proprietary. By providing any User Contribution on thePlatform, you grant us the right to use, reproduce, modify, perform, display, distribute, and otherwise disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose according to your account settings. You represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the User Contributions and have the right to grant the license granted above to us.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you post, and you have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness. We are not responsible or liable to any third party for the content or accuracy of any User Contributions posted by you or any other user of the Platform.
User Contributions must comply with all applicable federal, state, local, and international laws and regulations. User Contributions must not contain any material that is defamatory, obscene, indecent, abusive, offensive, harassing, violent, hateful, inflammatory, or otherwise objectionable, and must nor promote sexually explicit or pornographic material, violence, or discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
Users will not post any User Contribution that would infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other intellectual property or other rights of any other person, violate the legal rights (including the rights of publicity and privacy) of others or contain any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable laws or regulations.
User Contributions must not promote any illegal activity, or advocate, promote, or assist any unlawful act, cause annoyance, inconvenience, or needless anxiety or be likely to upset, embarrass, alarm, or annoy any other person, impersonate any person, or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person or organization, or give the impression that they emanate from or are endorsed by us or any other person or entity, if this is not the case.
Users accept not post any User Contribution involving commercial activities or sales, such as contests, sweepstakes, and other sales promotions, barter, or advertising.
When you post User Contributions on the Platform, you grant Worksome a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable, and worldwide license to use your User Contributions and associated intellectual property rights to help us operate and improve our services.

Monitoring and Enforcement
We have the right to, but not obligated to, pre-screen any User Contribution, monitor, audit, filter, refuse to post, or remove any User Contributions for any or no reason, in our sole discretion. Further, we may take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that User Contribution violates this policy, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the personal safety of users of the Platform or the public, or could create liability for Worksome.
