You own all of the content and information you post on Seraphim®; you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
a. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (“IP content”), you specifically grant to Company, subject to your privacy and application settings, a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Seraphim® (the “IP License”). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or when your account is terminated, unless your IP content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

d. When you publish content or information using the “Public” setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Seraphim®, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
