HERE IS A SUMMARY OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BITS
If you send us Photos or Videos, we will be able to use one or more of them (or part of one or more of them) in any way we like. So, we might decide to put them on one of our other services, like Sky News TV or the Sky News website, or give them to someone else to put on one of their websites or TV services. We might even decide not to use them at all! If you do not want us to use your Photos orVideo then it is best not to send them to us in the first place. Remember, you can always look at our Sky Tyne and Wear Your Photos and Videos FAQs if you have any questions.
Sky will not pay you (or anyone involved) for any Photo or Video that you send us.
Please do not send us any Photos or Videos that you have not created yourself. This means that you cannot copy anyone else’s work or send us something that is not yours unless you have permission from the person who made it or owns it.
You must also make sure that anyone that appears in a Photo or Video you want to send to us has given you their permission to do so.
Please do not send us anything that is rude or might offend or upset another person.
Please do not send us anything which says things that are not true about someone else. If you are unsure, then it is best not to send it to us.
Keep yourself and others safe by not revealing in your Photos or Videos any personal information such as addresses (home or email) or telephone numbers.
Using your personal info
When you use the Service, you may choose to give us information which we will be able to use to contact you in the future, for example to discuss broadcasting or publishing a Photo or Video. If you do not wish us to use your personal information like this, please do not fill in the information boxes or submit Photos or Videos.
Is it going to cost you anything?
The only cost you will incur will be the standard charge made by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for browsing the internet.
