Gallery Licence

This Gallery Licence Agreement (‘Licence’) sets out the terms which apply to your use of all BBC Learning content (‘Content’) available via the KO-SU website at (‘Site’).

Please note: You accept that KO-SU Limited (‘KO-SU’) merely makes the Content available via the Site and you therefore agree that KO-SU will have no responsibility or liability in relation to the Content.

This Licence is in addition, and without prejudice, to the Terms of Use Member Terms, and Privacy Policy which apply to your use of the Site (together, the ‘Platform Terms’).  Your right to use the Content, now and in future, is conditional upon your membership of the Site and your compliance with the Platform Terms and these Licence terms.

Where any inconsistency arises between this Licence and any of the Platform Terms with respect to the Content, the terms of this Licence shall prevail.

1. Principles & Acceptance

a) The Content has been provided to allow KO-SU members (‘Members’) to develop and enrich their (and others’) experience of the KO-SU Site, including all functionality available via the Site and via mobile devices or applications accessing the Site, (together, the ‘Platform’).  The beneficial and creative enhancement and promotion of the community of interest on the KO-SU Platform (‘Community Interest’) therefore lies at the heart of this Licence. 

b) By selecting the ‘Accept’ button accompanying these Licence terms or otherwise signifying your acceptance you accept the terms set out in this Licence. If you do not agree with any of these terms, then do not accept this Licence and do not access or download the Content.

c) You understand and accept that this Licence is legally binding upon you and that you understand and accept all of its terms.

b) You may not use the Content for anything other than the Permitted Purposes.

c) This Licence is personal to you and you may not sublicence, assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights without the prior written consent of the Licensor.    

d) This Licence and use of the Content is conditional upon you being a Member.  If you are not a Member, you are not entitled to download or use the Content.  If, at any time, you cease to be a Member, this Licence and your right to use the Content will automatically terminate. Should you wish to re-register as a Member, you will be required to pay the then current Charges in respect of any further use of the Content, subject to the then current Licence terms.

iv. in compliance with all terms and conditions applicable to the use of the Platform, including (without limitation) the KO-SU Member Terms and the Acceptable Use Policy contained therein;   

v. for the development of Platform content which is consistent with points (i)-(iv) above; and  

vi. for any other purposes specifically approved in writing by KO-SU or the Licensor. The above uses together comprise the ‘Permitted Purpose(s)’ in this Licence. 

b) You may use the Content to develop products and/or services for resale, license or other distribution via the Platform, provided that the said development and sale is carried out in accordance with (i) the Permitted Purposes, (ii) these Licence terms and (iii) the Platform Terms. You agree and accept that any such commercial use of the Content may give rise to fees or other charges payable in accordance with the Member Terms.

c) This Licence is personal to you, so only you may use the Content. However, it is accepted that you may provide the Content to (i) clients, customers or other Platform users as an integral part of your offering on the Platform, and (ii) to third party service providers necessary for your use of the Platform, such as your ISP or mobile network provider, provided that such parties shall have no further or additional rights to use the Content and cannot access or extract it from any file(s) you provide.

d) If you are in any doubt as to whether or not any usage is permitted or not, you must not proceed until you obtain the relevant consent(s).  For these purposes, notice in writing should be served on KO-SU, who will liaise with the Content Owner and give you a final binding decision on the matter.

4. License Restrictions You may not use the Content for anything not specifically described in the Permitted Purposes. Additionally, and without limitation, you MAY NOT use the Content in any of the following ways (“Prohibited Uses”):

Any notice served on KO-SU hereunder is purely to allow KO-SU to address any infringement issues relating to the Site and does imply any obligation or liability on the part of KO-SU with regard to the Content.   

10. Your Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold KO-SU harmless from and against any and all claims, liability, losses, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) incurred as a result of or in connection with any breach of the terms of this Licence by you or anyone acting for you or on your behalf.

d) This Licence constitutes the entire understanding and agreement between the parties concerning the Content and replaces and supersedes all previous proposals, correspondence, understandings or other communications whether written or oral; save that nothing shall be construed as hereby attempting to exclude any liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
