When you join the REcreative website and upload work to the website, you agree that you are 16 years old or over. If you’re not 16 or older then unfortunately you can’t use the website.

This is because REcreative is a public space, which means that anyone can access it, and we want content created by the community to go live immediately.This means that to make the website safe for everyone we need to restrict the age for the community parts of the site. We’re sorry if this causes any frustration. You can contact REcreative if you have any questions about this.

- Any work or content you upload to the site (your “content”) must not contain obscene or defamatory material.

- You declare to us that your content will not infringe the intellectual property rights or any other rights of a third party (anyone other than you).

- You will ensure that if you do use material that belongs to someone else you will have all necessary copyright permissions from that person or organisation before you submit it to the REcreative website.

- You accept that any  content you submit to REcreative may be displayed as part of the REcreative website and images may be used in online and offline promotional material.


A note on Copyright and Intellectual Property Rights

What is intellectual property? Basically, intellectual property refers to a creation of the mind that has been written down, recorded, videoed, drawn, sketched or recorded in some other permanent form. Intellectual property rights can be found in written works, visual works, music, symbols, names, images and designs.  There are different types of intellectual property rights that exist in these types of works, including "copyright" and "trademarks". It is something original that you have come up with and that is yours, which means you can't have copied it. Respecting someone else’s intellectual property rights then, means not using or copying their work without their permission and if they are happy for you to use their work, making sure you say that it is theirs and not yours.
