3. User submissions and content creations
You own all of the content and information that you post on the Site and submit to any part of the Service.
You represent and warrant that the use or other exploitation of such User Submissions by Company and use or other exploitation by users of the Site and Service as contemplated by this Agreement will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party, including without limitation any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
The above licenses granted by you in User Submissions you create or submit to the Service terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you delete your User Submission from the Service, unless your User Submission has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it. When you remove or delete User Submissions from the Service, you understand and agree, however, that Explain Everything may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your User Submissions that have been removed or deleted.
When you publish User Submissions using the public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of the Service, to access and use that content, and to associate it with you (i.e. your name and profile picture), may be viewed by other Service users, may appear in the searchable database, and will be available for others to access and view online.
Accordingly, you hereby do and shall grant to each User and to the public a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to access, view and publicly perform your public User Submissions. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.
