Do I need a license?

Content that the user posts, uploads, shares, stores, or otherwise provides via the BitcoinWide Services platform is the user's "User Submission." By uploading this content to the platform, the user grants BitcoinWide rights over the content shared. Some of this content may be viewed by other users of the platform. The following licenses are subject to the Privacy Policy as they relate to User Submissions, which are also the user's personally identifiable information.

For all User Submissions, the user hereby grants BitcoinWide a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes such as formatting for smartphone and computer), reproduce, and otherwise respectfully interact with the content provided by the user under their User Submissions. This license does not impact the user's ownership over their User Submission content.

If the user shares User Submission to a limited number of other users, such as a private message (otherwise known as "Limited Audience User Submission"), they grant BitcoinWide the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute the user's Limited Audience User Submission for the sole purpose of making that content accessible to the users the content has been shared with and providing the Services necessary to do so. The user also grants permission to the users the Limited Audience User Submission has been shared with a license to use the content as permitted by the functionality of the Services.

If the user shares User Submission publicly for all other BitcoinWide users to view (otherwise known as "Public User Submission"), they grant BitcoinWide the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute the user's Public User Submission for the sole purpose of making that content accessible to all other BitcoinWide users and providing the Services necessary to do so. The user grants a license to BitcoinWide users who may view the Public User Submission permission to use the content. The user grants a license to BitcoinWide if the user shares any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Services with BitcoinWide via direct email or otherwise. The user also grants BitcoinWide permission to use the content in the Public User Submission in connection with the Services and/or BitcoinWide business for any purpose, provided that BitcoinWide notifies the user of such activity before the fact.

The user agrees that the licenses they grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicensable, irrevocable, and worldwide, provided that when the user deletes their BitcoinWide account, BitcoinWide will stop displaying the user's User Submissions with exception to their Public User Submissions, which may remain fully available to other users (if applicable). The user understands and agrees that the content in their Public User Submissions may not be completely deleted from BitcoinWide records and may remain available to other users in the event the content has been saved or copied.

The user understands and agrees that BitcoinWide, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to the users, may need to make changes to the user's User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services, and/or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
