Terms & Conditions

We’re happy to have you here, and hope you find Enliven easy to use and simply amazing. We rarely read the legal stuff on the sites we personally use, so we’ll try to make this as painless and simple as we can.

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your use of Enlivens websites, products and services, and by using Enliven you agree to be bound by them. We can change these Terms at any time, but if a change is material, we will of course let you know before they take effect.

Introduction

Enliven is basically a publishing platform connecting its users with some of the world’s most talented creatives, experts and personal brands. With the help of Enliven they can create and deliver inspiring editorial articles and content directly to you as an Enliven user.

This license lets you use Enliven solely as permitted by these Terms. Unauthorized use of any of Enliven’s trademarks, logos, domain names or other distinctive brand features is prohibited.

You accept to use the service only for lawful purposes, and to not violate the rights of Enliven, our creatives, editors or any other third parties.

Any unacceptable use, including posting content or commentary that is obscene, pornographic, gory, illegal, threatening or harassing, excessively violent or promoting the harm of self or others, may result in immediate termination of your account and suspension of service access in the future.

Under our  DMCA Policy, we’ll remove material after receiving a valid takedown notice. Under our  Trademark Policy, we’ll investigate any use of another’s trademark and respond appropriately.

Terms for Enliven Creatives & Editors

As an Enliven creative you can by yourself, or in collaboration with other Enliven creatives and editors, publish articles or content elements on Enliven. All published articles or content elements are defined as, but not limited to: text, photos, videos, podcasts, comments and other content. To simplify further reading we hereinafter refer this to the somewhat sloppy and degrading term: content.

You as a creative own all the rights to the content you publish on Enliven. By submitting your content to Enliven, you give us a non-exclusive license to publish it on all digital platforms associated with Enliven, including all activities that are reasonably related to publishing, including storing, reformatting, distributing and displaying this content. This might also include promoting your content in other languages or through other platforms & services for broader broadcast and distribution. We will never ever sell or share your content to any other parties.

In order for us to monetize your content you are granting Enliven the right to enable advertising, e-commerce and offer premium services (e.g. Paywall), when distributing and displaying your content to Enliven users.

You—and you alone—are responsible for owning and controlling all rights associated to the content you publish on Enliven. By publishing content on Enliven, you guarantee that you have the necessary rights to publish that content, and that doing so doesn’t conflict with any licenses or rights you may have granted other parties. You are welcome to publish articles or content already published elsewhere, as long as it doesn’t conflict with any prior agreements and that the article is still deemed as relevant to our readers.

When publishing through Enliven you assume all risk associated with it, including anyone else’s reliance on its accuracy or legal claims that might stem from publishing the content on Enliven. Any unacceptable use, including publishing content that is obscene, pornographic, gory, illegal, threatening or harassing, excessively violent or promoting the harm of self or others, will most likely result in immediate termination of your account and suspension of service access.

We assume the responsibility to pre-screen content published by Enliven’s team of creatives and editors and have the right to review, remove or disable access to any articles on Enliven for any reason.

You can delete any or all of your articles, or your full account at anytime. Processing the deletion may take a little time (typically 1-2 days), but we’ll do it as quickly as possible. We keep backup copies of your deleted articles and account information for up to 31 days after you delete them.

Revenue share model

You focus on what you do best – being creative and to inspire people!

Enlivens task is to ensure that:

  1. We attract as many users as possible, while converting them to premium users
  2. Get as many of these users to consume your content
  3. Ensure that each user is “monetized” by leveraging a combination of revenue drivers including, but not limited to, premium services (e.g. paywall), affiliate marketing, online advertising, e-commerce and collaborations with consumer brands.

Enliven will, after the close of each quarter, calculate and transfer your accrued revenue to your bank account. This sum will be based on the total number of page impressions that all your articles has had during the quarter divided by the total page views for all articles displayed on the Enliven during the same period.

Payments will be processed by electronic bank transfer within twenty-one (21) days of the end of the quarter. In the event that your accrued compensation is below EUR 30 your compensation will be carried over to the following quarter until such time as the total compensation reaches EUR 30 in aggregate.

An independent auditing firm appointed by Enliven will ensure that all revenue is calculated and transferred according to the upon described revenue share model.

Copyrights

When publishing content on Enliven, all creatives retain all copy rights and all other rights to their material.

Enliven fully complies with the WIPO Copyright Treaty. We respond to takedown notices and have a policy of terminating repeat infringers when appropriate. You can report alleged copyright infringement by emailing to:  [email protected].

Crawling the services is allowed if done in accordance with the provisions of our robots.txt file, but scraping the services is strictly prohibited. Any republishing of text, pictures, video, etc. without prior consent from the creators of the content published on Enliven is strictly prohibited. Legal action may be pursued by Enliven and it’s Creatives if republished content isn’t removed when requested.

Changes to Our Services

Enliven is a dynamic platform, always evolving and getting better. As a result, we may change, eliminate or restrict access to our service or any part of our service at any time, for any reason, with or without advance notice. And we may do so with respect to one, some or all of our users.

Disclaimers

Enliven is provided “as is” without any warranties, express or implied. Enliven disclaims all warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent allowed by law, Enliven shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, or any loss of profits or revenues, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any loss of data, use, goodwill or other intangible losses resulting from (A) your access to, use of, inability to access or inability to use Enliven; (B) any third party conduct or content on Enliven, including any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of third parties; or (C) any unauthorized access, use or alteration of your content.

Arbitration

Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with this contract, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (the “SCC”).

The Rules for Expedited Arbitrations shall apply, unless the SCC in its discretion determines, taking into account the complexity of the case, the amount in dispute and other circumstances, that the Arbitration Rules shall apply. In the latter case, the SCC shall also decide whether the Arbitral Tribunal shall be composed of one or three arbitrators.

Governing Law

These Terms will be governed by the laws of Sweden, except for its conflict of laws principles. For claims that aren’t subject to arbitration, we each agree that any such claims shall be litigated exclusively in a court located in Stockholm, Sweden and you consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.

Entire Agreement

These Terms and our Privacy & Security Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and Enliven. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue to be in full force and effect.
