Terms and Conditions

You are being asked to contribute your recollections, photographic images, video, social media postings or other digital content to the Belfast Free Library, which is creating a digital record of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  

You may only submit material created entirely by you and not copied from or based, in whole or in part, upon any other photographic, literary, or other material, except to the extent that such material is in the public domain, or you have permission of the copyright owner, or its use is allowed by "Fair Use" as prescribed by the terms of United States copyright law.  

By submitting content through this form, you are granting the Belfast Free Library permission to disseminate, preserve, and use that content in connection with its educational and research mission, including promotional purposes, in all media in perpetuity.   You retain ownership of and copyright in the material you share. 

By submitting your item using the project’s online form, you agree that your submission is “public” and your material may be published on the web (with or without your name, depending on what you have submitted) as part of Belfast Free Library digital collections or exhibits.

Submitted material must not violate any confidentiality, privacy, security or other laws. Please be aware that all submissions and any information associated with the submissions (email address, descriptive information, etc.) may be provided to federal, state, or local law enforcement or other government agencies pursuant to a lawful subpoena or otherwise as required by law. 

The Belfast Free Library is not obligated to include your content in this project or preserve it in perpetuity, for example, if the content does not adhere to the guidelines of this project. Your content may not include violence, harassment, terrorism, hate speech, or any other language, imagery, or implication of harm to other people.

All submissions must include your first and last names and email address. Your personal information is kept private and will not be made public, as this is separate from the "Creator" field, which may remain anonymous.
