TakePart does not accept or consider any ideas, suggestions or materials other than those we specifically request. Any unsolicited submissions (e.g., articles, pitches, outlines, scripts, treatments, videos, recordings, etc.) will be discarded and will not be read or reviewed by, nor forwarded to, any TakePart staff. The purpose of this policy is to avoid any potential misunderstandings if anything that appears on takepart.com, or any website or other property or platform controlled by or associated with TakePart, its parent or any affiliated entities, seems the same or similar to your original work, as many works and submissions are based on the same or similar ideas.
Please note, if you choose to disregard this policy and submit materials regardless, you acknowledge that: (i) you have read TakePart's submission policy; and (ii) you shall not be entitled to any compensation, credit or notice whatsoever and that by sending an unsolicited submission you waive the right to make any claim against TakePart, its parent or affiliated entities, relating to unsolicited submissions, including, without limitation, unfair competition, breach of implied contract or breach of confidentiality.
Furthermore, your submission shall be deemed an assignment to TakePart, its parent and affiliated entities, of all worldwide right, title and interest in all copyrights and other intellectual property rights in all materials and ideas you submit, and as such, any and all materials that you submit shall be deemed the exclusive property of TakePart, its parent and affiliated entities, and TakePart, its parent and affiliated entities shall be entitled to use any such materials for any purpose, including, but not limited to, reproduction, disclosure, editing, transmission, publication, broadcast and posting, in any media, throughout the world.
