You have expressed a desire to voluntarily provide such content, but to do so you must agree to the following terms of this Content Submission Agreement (“Agreement”):
b. You understand that IRI maintains membership and related records containing personal information about you which may include, but is not limited to: name, age, address, Church membership status, and location of Church membership. IRI uses this information to help administer the use of the Submissions. You further grant IRI permission to collect and process additional limited personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your e-mail address, one or more photographs of you, and other personal information you might choose to provide. This personal information is collected to allow IRI to identify and contact you regarding the Submission and to publish such content. You hereby consent to this collection, use, processing, disclosure, and transfer of your personal information for the purposes described above.
c. You acknowledge that IRI is not obligated to use your Submission in any form. While IRI acknowledges that you shall continue to own all copyright to your Submission, subject to the unrestricted license granted above, you acknowledge and agree that you will not have any right, title, or interest in or to any work, publication, or material that is produced by IRI (or by our sublicensees) and which contains all or a portion of your Submission. You agree that you have not and will not sell or license any part of your Submission in a way that would impair or restrict IRI from fully using the rights and licenses you have granted herein.

Additionally, you will not receive any compensation for any Submission, for the licenses granted above, or for any waiver or any grant of additional rights as outlined herein. You agree that IRI’s review of your Submission for possible use is adequate consideration for the rights, licenses, and releases granted in this Agreement.
e. You warrant that you will not submit any material that is prohibited by law in any applicable jurisdiction or to which you do not have the right to grant the licenses and rights set forth above. You also warrant that you have the right to grant to IRI the rights, licenses, and releases granted above, and that such rights do not conflict with the rights (including, but not limited to, the copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy rights, contract rights, or any similar rights) of any other person or legal entity or with your obligations thereto.
i. In this regard, if anyone besides yourself made contributions to your Submission (for example by co-authoring, arranging, composing, recording, filming, etc.) or otherwise has copyright ownership in or other rights to your Submission, then you hereby represent and warrant that you will have each such person sign a printable copy of this Agreement (as available HERE).

ii. You agree not to submit any Submission containing a picture, video, audio, performance, or other recoding of any identifiable person or of any identifiable, privately-owned location, without first receiving written consent that allows IRI to use that Submission in accordance with the rights and licenses granted herein.

f. You warrant that you consent to IRI’s collection and use of your Submission and personal information; you agree to indemnify IRI for any liabilities associated with later acts by you or others in connection with this Agreement and your Submission; and you acknowledge and agree that you will be bound by all provisions contained in this Agreement.
