#SHOWUSYOURSOLOVAIR USER GENERATED POLICY

What’s it all about

The decision behind our hashtag #showusyoursolovair is we appreciate how much you guys are helping us continue our history as one of the very last and genuine British-made footwear manufacturers. You are part of our survival and we (NPS Shoes Ltd and our associated websites for our brands Solovair ® and NPS ®) want to celebrate your support and share photos of yourself wearing Solovair.

As part of our #showusyoursolovair campaign we will have a dedicated page on our website www.solovair-shoes.com/showusyoursolovair to celebrate your shared photos and individuality. By taking a Photo of you and your Solovairs, tagging it #showusyoursolovair, and sharing it on Instagram ™, Twitter ™ or Facebook ™, we will be able to find your Photos by searching for our created hashtag and will then chose and share the photo on our website.

Consent and formalities

Here’s where we get serious but this bit is to protect you and to be totally upfront about how your data will be used. By using the hashtag #showusyoursolovair, you acknowledge and give your consent for NPS Shoes Ltd that your photo(s) and your social handle and/or comment(s) may be used by NPS Shoes Ltd, including our associated websites including www.solovair-shoes.com and where possible linking through to the product pages of footwear you are wearing. Though we do not usually favour such impersonal methods it is unrealistic for us to personally contact each individual for which we do apologise in advance.

How Photos will be Picked

NPS Shoes Ltd will select Photos at its absolute discretion. For avoidance of doubt, NPS Shoes Ltd is under no obligation to use Photos submitted.

We can tell you what will not be selected:

  • We will not be able to use any photos that infringe the rights of a third party (e.g. copyrighted and trade-marked material).
  • Play nice – harmful, threatening or violent, harassing, abusive, offensive, inflammatory, discriminatory, profane or anything considered to be bullying is out.
  • Play safe – do not disclose any personal information that would be considered private or confidential.
  • Play clean – do not post any explicit or indecent content.

We want our customers to feel confident and comfortable as to what happens when you submit, post, or otherwise make available images, photographs, videos, text, messages, social handles and comments (“User Content”) on social media websites namely: Instagram ™, Twitter ™ and Facebook ™.

How your Photo will be Treated

Your Photo will be treated as non-proprietary and non-confidential.  By submitting your Photo you retain your rights in that Photo and warrant that the Photo is your creation and does not violate any applicable laws or regulations.  By submitting a Photo you hereby grant to NPS Shoes Ltd a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence (with the right to sub-licence) to use, edit, alter, reproduce, translate, publish and/or distribute the Photos and/or incorporate it in other works on the NPS Shoes Ltd Websites or in other products or services available through the Websites (the Websites and the products and services collectively referred to as the “Services”) using any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).  You understand that this licence means your Photo may be made available by NPS Shoes Ltd globally on the Services and that other users of the Services (individuals and companies) can also share and make your Photos available on social media platforms or other services.  More, particularly a user can share a Photo directly from the Gallery on other social platforms including Pinterest, Twitter and if they are accessing the Gallery on their mobile device to WhatsApp.  If you do not want to grant the permissions set out above then please do not submit or share your Photos with the associated hashtag #showusyoursolovair.

You also acknowledge that your Submissions will not be returned and NPS Shoes Ltd may use your Submissions, and any ideas, concepts or know-how contained therein, without payment of money or any other form of consideration, for any purpose including advertising, promotional, marketing, publicity, trade or commercial purposes, without attribution, and without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity.

By submitting your Photos you are warranting that you have the right to grant the licence described above. Without wanting to get personal, you further promise that you are at least 18 years old and that you agree your photo, social media handle and any associated caption will be considered a “submission” and that you agree to all the terms of our User Generated Content Policy. If the Photo features other people you must have their permission and consent to allow NPS Shoes Ltd and other users of the Services to use the Photos. To the extent permitted by law, you also agree to waive your moral rights in relation to any Photos submitted.
