Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

By using or accessing MyNews.is, you agree to this Statement.

  1. Privacy

    Your privacy is very important to us. We designed our Privacy Policy to make important disclosures about how you can use MyNews.is to share with others and how we collect and can use your content and information. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy, and to use it to help make informed decisions.

  2. Sharing Your Content and Information

    You own all of the content and information you post on MyNews.is. In addition:

    1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like texts, photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with MyNews.is (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

    2. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time.

    3. When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of MyNews.is, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).

    4. We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about MyNews.is, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).

  3. Safety

    We do our best to keep MyNews.is safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to do that, which includes the following commitments:

    1. You will not send or otherwise post unauthorized commercial communications (such as spam) on MyNews.is.
