Welcome to Storipress. Its awesome that you've chosen to choose our platform as the home for your publication.
This Publisher Agreement (“Agreement”) is a binding contract between you and Storipress and our corporate entity, Albion Media Pty. Ltd. (“we”, “us”, “our”). It contains the rules and restrictions that govern your use of Storipress' products and services (referred to below simply as “Storipress”) to distribute your articles and content.
You must be of legal age to form a binding contract to use Storipress. If you aren’t, you need to get your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use Storipress, and your parent or guardian will agree to this Agreement on your behalf.
If you’re agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of an organisation or entity, you must be authorised to agree to this Agreement on that organisation or entity’s behalf and bind them to this Agreement (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” throughout this document refer to that organisation or entity).
If you do not agree to all of the following, you are not allowed to use or access Storipress in any way. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding this Agreement or our products and services, contact us at [email protected].
Firstly, you own everything you create. Any original content that you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide to us is yours, will remain yours, and is protected by copyright and any other applicable intellectual property laws.
However, unless agreed in writing, in using Storipress, you agree to grant us a nonexclusive, royalty free, worldwide, fully paid, and sub-licensable license to use, promote, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform, and display your content and any name, username or likeness provided in connection with your content in all media formats and distribution methods now known or later developed on the Services. Additionally, you allow Storipress to use your tradename(s), trademark(s), and logo(s) for the purpose of distribution and marketing of your publication(s).
Storipress needs this license as you own your content, which means that we therefore can't promote it or display it across various surfaces (e.g. mobile, web) without your permission.
You agree to the following rules around your relationships with Readers and other users of Storipress:
You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that we have no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any publications you create through Storipress and for the consequences of your actions by doing so. This means that you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for ensuring distribution of your publications, our actions under this Agreement are solely to assist you in facilitating distribution.
You may delete one or more of your publications from Storipress at your discretion. However, we are under no obligation to issue any refunds to you, and we are entitled to keep any and all portions of any Revenue Share you have paid Storipress.
If there is a dispute between you and a user about payments or any other issue, you agree we are under no obligation to become involved and that we will not be held liable for any such dispute. We are not liable for your relationship with users, and we won’t provide you with any legal advice regarding such matters.
You shall provide to us a current email address to which we may direct inquiries from Readers and other Storipress users regarding your publication(s).
You are responsible for all your activity in connection with Storipress!
Make sure that you use Storipress in a manner that complies with the law and is permitted by this Agreement. If your use of Storipress is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use Storipress. We can’t and won’t be responsible for you using Storipress in a way that breaks the law.

Storipress takes privacy very seriously. If you store personal or sensitive information provided by or collected from Storipress users, you must do so securely and only for as long as it is needed.
Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason. Upon such termination of this Agreement, your right to use Storipress will immediately cease.
We may terminate this Agreement or terminate, suspend, or restrict your access to or use of Storipress at any time, for any reason. Reasons that may lead to us terminating or restricting access to Storipress include a breach of any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement, your offensive or unacceptable behavior, objectionable material, or any other actions in violation of guidelines we specify. We will notify Publishers as soon as reasonably practicable if Publishers’ access to Storipress is suspended or substantially limited due to technical problems with the platform.
You agree that this means that publications (or any content therein) may be removed from Storipress at any time in our discretion. You also agree that we retain the right to immediately halt the creation or hosting of publications at our discretion.
We are constantly trying to improve our products and services, so this Agreement may need to change along with Storipress.

If you don’t agree with the new Agreement, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use Storipress. If you use Storipress in any way after a change to the Agreement is effective and notice has been provided, that means you agree to all of the changes. Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
