Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
This Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (“Statement,” “Terms,” or “SRR”) is our terms of service that governs our relationship with users and others who interact with URWOK, as well as URWOK brands, products and services. By using or accessing the URWOK Services, you agree to this Statement, as updated from time to time in accordance with Section 8 below.

  1. Privacy Your privacy is very important to us. We designed the Terms to make important disclosures about how you can use URWOK to showcase your business to others and how we collect and can use your content and information.
  2. Sharing Your Content and Information You own all of the content and information you post on URWOK, and you can control how it is shared through your profile. In addition:
    1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission and granting us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with URWOK (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
    2. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
    3. When you publish content or information on URWOK, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of URWOK, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name, profile picture and pictures of your products or services).
    4. We always appreciate the content you publish and share, your feedback or other suggestions about URWOK, but you understand that we may use your stories, feedback or suggestions without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).
    5. We can also post on your behalf. This is strictly by your permission. We can reach out to you on social media and ask for your permission to post on your behalf. Once we have your permission to do so, we will be obliged to use your information and content on URWOK Platform.

    10. You will not facilitate or encourage any violations of this Statement or our policies.
  4. Registration and Account Security URWOK users provide their real names, information and content that they own, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
