Short videos are the main audiovisual content in our website. Other content may include text and images (and other website-used forms) provided by us, our users, or third parties. Our website is the only and exclusive place where stories produced for our project can be displayed and viewed. We reserve the right to make the content available to other media and projects. No other user or party has the right to take the content in any form and profit from it commercially or make it publicly available in any physical, online or any other form without written permission.

PARTICIPATION
If you want to participate in our project actively by contributing to the story and become one of our story tellers, please also read the general directions (labeled ‘Tell a Story’) available in our website and contact us for further specific information before starting a project.

Your CONTRIBUTION may take any form of story-telling via the audiovisual medium (e.g. video). This can be a written idea for another story, a script, work and service as an actor, or crew member as well as any other person involved in movie production and post-production, including producers, lawyers, musicians and other artists. Contribution can also include the production of an entire or substantial part of a local story. Other people who are not related to the film/video industry or who do not view themselves as artists may consider participating in OGM project by telling one of their stories to the camera.

BEFORE starting any potential contribution to our project, you should inform us about it by sending us a written proposal to our email (info@oneglobalstory.com). You then need to receive written confirmation from us and sign an agreement specifying the details and terms of our cooperation. We reserve the right not to answer to all email proposals, or store them and answer them at a later date. Please remember that our correspondence and collaboration, including exchange of information and documents, remains confidential at all times.

You need to be capable and eligible to create/produce your contribution independently. You are solely and fully responsible for creating your contribution and for clearing all rights (including copy rights) to the content you submit. You are also responsible for all legal, financial, material and moral aspects of the production and delivery of your contribution. Under no condition are we liable for your actions, work and their consequences related to any stage of the production (including pre- and post-production) of your contribution. This includes you and any other parties working with or for you.

Remember that nobody has the right to use the One Global Story, One Global Art and One Global Movement name and logo (Trade Mark), production concepts or ideas for their own productions without clear written agreement from the producer. Any misuse will be prosecuted.

We also reserve the right to reject any proposal for a contribution or a contribution delivered to us if it does not meet the formal or creative/aesthetic criteria or if it violates our TaC.

FREE PROJECT
Please notice that contribution and collaboration in our project is free (unpaid) at the moment. Any exceptions to this rule are subject to individually written agreements between us and you. Participation happens on a voluntary basis but is competitive based on the creative and artistic criteria of each project/proposal which can be judged by us or external experts.

PROMOTIONAL AND COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES
Please notice that all our content, including your contribution in whole or as part of it, may be used to promote our project in trailers, ads or other forms available in our website or in other media. This includes using the content or its parts in cooperation with our partners, sponsors and advertisers who support our project in some way. We may also sell advertising in association with all stories in our website and generate revenue from the content in other ways. In case we generate any profit by sub-licensing your independently-made story (the entire short movie) to any external online, terrestrial, cable or mobile media we will share with you up to fifty percent of the profit.

COPYRIGHTS
Please notice the collaborative nature of our project where many local stories are connected into one. One Global Story has to be a secure and reliable entity that allows our viewers and contributors to participate in it. This means that each story or any contribution to the story, together with the rights to it, becomes part of the entire project.

As a consequence, we own the copyrights to the entire project and each part of it that we produced and/or co-produced in collaboration with you. When an entire local story or a substantial part of it was entirely created or produced by you for the purpose of our project, you grant us the right and license to use the content for the life of the entire project. Exceptions to this rule are subject to individually written agreements.

Unless other agreements are made when submitting your contribution to us and granting us the license to use it, the following general conditions apply. You grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, and transferable right and license to use, publicly display, edit and distribute your contribution or part of it in our project in the current online medium or other media not yet known. In addition to the above, the license to use your contribution is exclusive to our project in at least the first season (usually a year) in which you submit it. This is to guarantee the originality and exclusivity of our project and prevent parts of it from appearing in other similar media or projects. For this period you may enter and promote your artistic work in other NON-similar media and projects such as conventional (non-online) artistic Festivals or other places agreed between you and us. After the exclusivity period when your contribution has been part of our project, our license and rights to it become non-exclusive with all other conditions of licensing staying unchanged.

RECOGNITION
We value your moral rights as an author of the contribution you deliver and this will be recognized in the movie credits and in the “Story Teller’s Profile” section of the website. We will also do our best to represent your contribution fairly and promote it within the possibilities of our project.

INDEMNIFICATION
You agree not to take any harmful actions and not to do anything that would go against our interest or the interest of our members or any third parties working with or for us. You agree to indemnify us or any third party for any legal responsibility, material and financial loss or damage caused by you or anybody on your behalf.

LIMITED LIABILITY
We take no liability for your use of our website and participation in our project and any consequences arising from it. It is your own decision and responsibility to use our website and participate in our project. In no case will we be liable to you for any sort of damage including expenses or lost profits resulting from using our website, its content, and from participating in our project.
