8.2 You retain ownership of the intellectual property rights (things like copyright or trademarks) in any such Content that you create and share on the Platform. Nothing in these Terms takes away the rights you have to your own Content. You are free to share your Content with anyone else, wherever you want.

8.5 Subject to section 8.7, you can delete your Content that you share, post, and upload at any time; and all Content posted to your personal account will be deleted if you delete your account.

8.6 After we begin the account deletion process or receive a Content deletion request, we will commence the process of deleting Content (“Deletion Process”) which may take up to 90 days. If you send Content to trash, the Deletion Process will automatically begin in 30 days unless you chose to delete the Content sooner. While the Deletion Process for such Content is being undertaken, the Content is no longer visible to other Users.

(iii) comply with legal obligations for the preservation of evidence, including data we preserve to comply with any record keeping obligations required by law; or

In each of the above cases, this licence will continue until the Content has been fully deleted.

Permission to use your name, profile picture, and information about your actions with ads and sponsored or commercial content:
