Permissions for Usage Rights

We love interacting with our customers and the online community and want to know what you are thinking, what you like, and see how you are using our products. We welcome your remarks, suggestions, reviews, ideas, photos and videos and other information (“User Generated Content” or “UGC”). You provide UGC in a variety of ways, including:

  • When you post or comment on the Website
  • Post or comment on our social media pages;
  • Respond to our requests for your permission to use photos or other information posted on social media channels; or
  • When you specifically submit or provide permission to use photos or other information via written communication with one of our employees

Your UGC is subject to this specific agreement about UGC and subject to our Privacy Policy.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT UGC SUBMITTED BY YOU MAY BE RECORDED AND STORED IN MULTIPLE PLACES, BOTH ON OUR WEBSITE AND ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNET AND ARE LIKELY TO BE ACCESSIBLE (I.E. VIEWABLE) FOR A LONG TIME. Your information may be available publicly, and you have no control over who will eventually see such materials. Be careful and selective about the personal information that you disclose about yourself and others and do not disclose sensitive, proprietary, or confidential information. Should you disclose information that is sensitive, proprietary, or confidential, you do so at your own risk, and France & Son (herein referred to as F&S) is not responsible for any consequences of such disclosure.

  • Ownership. As between you and F&S, you are and will remain the owner of your UGC, and you represent, warrant and covenant to us that you own all right, title and interest, including copyright, in and to your UGC you submit or post to the Website or agree to allow us to repost or use and such UGC is truthful and accurate and shall not breach, infringe, contravene, or detrimentally affect any other party's rights whatsoever, including intellectual property rights, and that no other party has any rights to it including so-called "moral rights." In other words, you promise that no other company or person will claim that you stole or are inappropriately using your UGC.

  • Our Right to Use your UGC. Although, as we explain above, you retain ownership of your UGC, by submitting, posting, or displaying UGC, you give to F&S a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, sublicensable, irrevocable, fully transferable right and license to use (including the right to copy, display, perform, publish, modify, adapt, and translate) such UGC in all forms and media. This means that our right to possess, use and display your UGC anywhere and through any means will never expire, that we will never owe you any money for it and that we may allow others to use or possess your UGC. If you remove your UGC from a Social Account and would prefer that F&S no longer use it on the Website or otherwise, please contact us at cs@franceandson.com, and we will work to address your request. We are not responsible for third-party websites and other companies and may not control their actions. Please review their respective policies and procedures.

  • Right to Monitor & Editorial Control. France & Son does not and cannot review all UGC, and we rely on you to make sure that your UGC is appropriate and applies with applicable laws. You agree that your UGC will not violate any right of any third party, including right of publicity, copyright, trademark, privacy rights (including children’s privacy rights) or other personal or proprietary right. You also agree that your UGC will not contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive, or obscene material, or contain any computer virus or other malware that could in any way affect the operation of the Website. You may not use a false email address or other identifying information, pretend to be someone other than yourself, or otherwise mislead F&S or third parties as to the origin of any UGC. However, F&S does reserve the right, but does not have an obligation, to monitor and/or review UGC and to delete, revise, or otherwise modify your UGC in our discretion, subject to applicable law. We reserve the right to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in our sole discretion are objectionable or in violation of our Terms & Conditions, France & Son’s policies or applicable law. We may also impose limits on certain features of the Website or restrict your access to part or all of the features without notice or penalty if we believe you are in breach of the guidelines set forth in these Terms & Conditions or applicable law, or for any other reason without notice or liability.

  • Copyright Violations. If you believe the UGC that we use on the Website or in other places infringes upon your copyright, you may request that the material be removed, or that access to it be blocked. Please email cs@franceandson.com for us to look further into your request.
