Your Rights in Subscriber Content:
Subscribers retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in Subscriber Content, and Uckyou.com and/or third parties retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in all Content other than Subscriber Content.
Subscriber Content License to Uckyou.com:
When you provide Subscriber Content to Uckyou.com through the Services, you grant Uckyou.com a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including, without limitation, in order to conform it to the requirements of any networks, devices, services, or media through which the Services are available), and create derivative works of, such Subscriber Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purposes of allowing Uckyou.com to operate the Services in accordance with their functionality, improve the Services, and develop new Services. The reference in this license to "creat[ing] derivative works" is not intended to give Uckyou.com a right to make substantive editorial changes or derivations, but does, for example, enable reblogging, which allows Uckyou.com Subscribers to redistribute Subscriber Content from one Uckyou.com blog to another in a manner that allows them to add their own text or other Content before or after your Subscriber Content.
You also agree that this license includes the right for Uckyou.com to make all publicly-posted Content available to third parties selected by Uckyou.com, so that those third parties can syndicate and/or analyze such Content on other media and services.
Note also that this license to your Subscriber Content continues even if you stop using the Services, primarily because of the social nature of Content shared through Uckyou.com’s Services - when you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, making your Content part of a social conversation that can’t later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others.
You also agree that you will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent and warrant that you have all of the necessary rights to grant us this license for all Subscriber Content you transfer to us.
Content License to You:
As a Subscriber of the Services, Uckyou.com grants you a worldwide, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license to download, store, view, display, perform, redistribute, and create derivative works of Content solely in connection with your use of, and in strict accordance with the functionality and restrictions of, the Services (including, without limitation, Paid Services, as defined below). This means, for example, that we license Content to you for purposes of reblogging.
Compliance with Community Guidelines:
You agree that you won't violate Uckyou.com's Community Guidelines.
Termination and Deletion:
On termination of your Account, or upon your deletion of particular pieces of Subscriber Content from the Services, Uckyou.com shall make reasonable efforts to make such Subscriber Content inaccessible and cease use of it; however, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) removed Subscriber Content may persist in caches or backups for a reasonable period of time and (b) copies of or references to the Subscriber Content may not be entirely removed (due to the nature of reblogging, for example).

Some of the Services require payment of fees. All fees are stated in United States dollars. You shall pay all applicable fees, as described in the applicable Services, in connection with such Services, and any related taxes or additional charges.
Paid Services are limited licenses for you to use particular for-pay aspects of the Services. Usage of terms like sell, sale, buy, purchase, or similar terms all refer to your acquisition of a license to use Paid Services, and do not represent any transfer of any right, title, or ownership interest of any kind. You may not relicense, resell, transfer, or exchange Paid Services within or outside of the Services, except as expressly allowed by the rules of those Paid Services.
Uckyou.com may, in its sole discretion, modify the functionality of, or eliminate, Paid Services, or the terms and conditions under which Paid Services are provided.
Purchases of Paid Services are final and non-refundable (particularly those Paid Services that may be used immediately, such as Promotions, as defined below), except at Uckyou.com's sole discretion and in accordance with the rules governing each Paid Service. Termination of your Account or your rights under this Agreement may result in forfeiture of purchased Paid Services. For example, if your Account is suspended, you forfeit your license you have purchased.
Uckyou.com may change its prices for Paid Services at any time. To the extent applicable, Uckyou.com will provide you reasonable notice of any such pricing changes by posting the new prices on or through the applicable Paid Service and/or by sending you an email notification. If you do not wish to pay the new prices, you may choose not to purchase, or to cancel, the applicable Paid Service prior to the change going into effect.
