We reserve the right to change any and all content contained on the Site at any time without notice. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by us.

4. Content Submitted By You (including Submissions):

(A) General Content

By uploading, posting, sending or submitting photographs, pictures, images or any other content including, without limitation, graphics, video, data, text, files, links, software, music, sound (“Content”), you are consenting to be bound by these terms of use. If you do not agree, do not upload, post, send or submit any Content to this site.

You agree that any Content (excluding direct, private inquiries) you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via this site or any of our services is non-confidential and that we shall have a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive license to use any such Content in connection with the Service and our business (and any successor), including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Content in any media formats and through any media channels (social media, in print, printable downloads, etc).

(B) Submissions by Authors

By submitting literary Content to our site (such as a “Free from” story or other article submissions) you (as the “Author”) are consenting to be bound by these terms of use. If you do not agree, do not send in Submissions.

(i) Copyright:

Copyright for Content submitted for publishing (i.e. articles, “Free from” stories) resides with the Author and the Author will be attributed for their work in an Author byline, bio box, or equivalent. Note that though we do our best, full Author attribution isn’t always possible when sharing to social media; however, posts will direct to where the full Content is published on our site, where the Author will be fully credited.

(ii) First Exclusive Serial Rights:

You agree that any Submission(s) you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via this site or any of our services is non-confidential and that we shall have a Worldwide First Exclusive Serial Rights to publish and distribute it in connection with the Service and our business (and any successor), including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Submission in any media formats and through any media channels (social media, in print, printable downloads, etc).

(iii) Subsequent Serial Rights:

After the Submission is published, we retain Worldwide Non-exclusive Perpetual Serial Rights (*see exception clause below) to publish and distribute it in connection with the Service and our business (and any successor), including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Submission in any media formats and through any media channels (social media, in print, printable downloads, etc). Submissions, therefore, cannot be removed from our Site or services (*see “anonymization” clause below).

Subsequent serial rights should be marketed only to publications in a non-competing niche (competing niches include: mental health and body image/positivity). It is requested that in any subsequent publishing, the author mentions the Content was originally published on “Libero Magazine”; additionally, a link to the original location on our site should be included where possible. This allows us to still receive credit for the Content appearing first on our site but offers you the freedom as the Author to publish your Content elsewhere where opportunities arise outside of Libero’s niche. Subsequent publishing on the Author’s personal blog is not considered a ‘competing niche’; however, credit to the original publishing location on Libero Magazine (including a link) is required.

*Exclusivity exception: For Interviews such as our “Free From” Interviews, you grant us full, perpetual worldwide exclusive rights to its content and consent that you will not share the interview contents with other publications or media sources.

*Submission anonymization: for privacy reasons, eligible content may be anonymized where possible — where the full name of the Author will be changed to first name and last initial — eligibility is at the discretion of Libero Network Society in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Note: we cannot change a Submission Author’s name to “anonymous” as this goes against the mission of our organization to use our voices publicly to fight secrecy, shame, and stigma surrounding mental health struggles. (Submissions from Experts to our Ask An Expert Column are excluded from this and must always be listed under the full name and credentials of the Expert and cannot be made anonymous in the future.)

(iv) Adapting Published Submissions

Once published, the content within Submissions cannot change. This maintains the integrity of our publication as comments, likes, and shares by others are based on the original content. However, updates can be made as dated notes added within the original Submission. Libero retains the right to reject adaptations deemed irrelevant, redundant, or inappropriate (i.e. if the update goes against any of our guidelines or terms or may be triggering or harmful to readers).

(v) Right to Edit for Quality

Libero and our editors reserve the right to edit Submissions for quality. This includes editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and readability. If changes are required that may alter or confuse the main message of the Submission, we will request the Author first edit the piece themselves and resubmit for review to avoid any misrepresentation.

We use advertisements on our Site to help fund our site and projects. We do our best to block any ads that may contain offensive, triggering, or sensitive content. This includes blocking ads by topics that we consider contradictory to our mission and values as an organization.

However, it is important to note that although we regularly review the ads running on our site, we do not have real-time control over what you may see. This means some ads may “slip through the cracks.” If this happens, we would appreciate you contacting us and letting us know using the form below. Please make sure you clearly state what was being advertised, the company and/or URL that was displayed, and a description of any other wording or imagery that was upsetting (a screenshot would be helpful). We want our Site to be a safe space and, therefore, are committed to doing what we can to ensure that is the case even with any third-party advertisers.

Don’t Like Seeing Ads? We are a nonprofit and ads are one way we raise money to keep our site and projects going. If you don’t like to see ads on our site, signup for monthly donations and help us fully fund ourselves through donations!
