Terms of Service (obsolete)
This is an earlier, obsolete version of Storium’s Terms of Service, originally published on 7/22/2015. It no longer applies and is provided here only for historical reference. Storium’s current, active Terms of Service are found here.

You understand that you might be exposed to such materials on Storium and that you use Storium at your own risk.

- Protagonist reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
- You own all of the original content that you post on Storium. Protagonist makes no claim of ownership to any content you post on Storium.
- You grant Protagonist a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, copy, store, publicly perform or display, distribute, modify, and translate any content you post on Storium subject to the following limitations. We may only use such content on Storium or for the purpose of operating Storium. We may only use reasonable excerpts of such content in other media for the purpose of marketing Storium. We may not use such content for any commercial purpose other than the operation of Storium. Our license to display your content on the Storium site terminates when it is deleted in accordance with Storium’s current deletion policies.
- As part of the service, you may “hand off” your role as a narrator or character to another user. If you do so, you grant each subsequent user you hand-off the role to a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use on Storium all content you created in that role. This license includes the right to delete, modify, and add to such content.

- Protagonist reserves the right, at any time, to impose or restructure any fees charged for your use of Storium. We will notify you in advance of any changes with respect to fees we choose to impose.
- You agree to indemnify and hold Protagonist, its officers, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, directors, agents, service providers, suppliers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorney fees and court costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of Content you submit, post or make available through Storium, your use of Storium, your violation of the Terms of Service or any applicable law, or your violation of any rights of another.
