If a You post content other than course Content – here is what happens.
For all User Submissions, You hereby grant Greater Commons a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure Your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services, as described in more detail below. This is a license only – Your ownership in User Submissions is not affected.
If You store a User Submission in Your own personal Greater Commons account in a manner that is not viewable by any other user except You (a “Personal User Submission”), You grant Greater Commons the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute such Personal User Submission for the purpose of making that Personal User Submission accessible to You and providing the Services necessary to do so.
If You share a User Submission only in a manner that only certain specified users can view (for example, a private message to a few other users) (a “Limited Audience User Submission”), then You grant Greater Commons the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute Your Limited Audience User Submission for the purpose of making that Limited Audience User Submission accessible to such other specified users, and providing the services necessary to do so. Also, You grant such other specified users a license to access that Limited Audience User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services.
If You share a User Submission publicly on the Services (like a Content discussion forum) and/or in a manner that more than just You or certain specified users can view, or if You provide Us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Services (each of the foregoing, a “Public User Submission”), then You grant Greater Commons the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute Your Public User Submission for the purpose of making that Public User Submission accessible to all Greater Commons users and providing the services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with the Services and/or otherwise in connection with Greater Commons’ business for any purpose. Also, You grant all other users of the Services a license to access that Public User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services.
You agree that all of the licenses You grant are royalty-free, perpetual, sublicenseable, irrevocable, and worldwide, provided that when You delete Your Greater Commons account, we will stop displaying Your User Submissions (other than Public User Submissions, which may remain fully available) to other users (if applicable), but You understand and agree that it may not be possible to completely delete that content from Greater Commons’ records, and that Your User Submissions may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent that they were copied or stored by other users.
Finally, You understand and agree that Greater Commons, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Service to Our users (including You), may need to make changes to Your User Submissions to conform and adapt those User Submissions to the technical requirements of connection networks, devices, services, or media, and the foregoing licenses include the rights to do so.
