This policy was last updated 5 May 2015 (Version 1.3) and supersedes all previous versions.
Because K Composite Magazine is distributed all over the world and in many formats, we need you to be aware of the rights and permissions you give us to reproduce what you say in your interview as well as any materials you provide to us. All materials submitted to us are subject to these terms.
1. Right of reproduction and distribution
If you provide photographs or images for us to publish, you MUST have the right to give us these materials for this use. If you are not the photographer, it is your responsibility to get permission from the photographer to use her/his images in this publication. Any disputes that may arise as a result of our use of the materials you provide will be your responsibility.
By agreeing to the terms, you confirm that you have permission to use any materials you provide to us and that you are granting perpetual license to K Composite to reproduce these materials.
2. Production deadlines (when applicable)
For instances in which we request materials from you, all materials including the approval of these terms must be received prior to a specific deadline we will communicate to you. It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure that their materials arrive in time to be included in the magazine.
By agreeing to the terms, you confirm that you understand the time-sensitive deadline and that missing the deadline may cause your interview or other materials to not be included in the magazine.
3. Editorial continuity
If interview subjects intentionally provide responses, images, information, et cetera, that are deemed to be erroneous, bogus, promotional, or otherwise disruptive, every right is reserved to not publish material that is deemed unusable. Materials published in K Composite appear at the sole discretion of the publisher or editor. If we cannot use what you provide, we may notify you and ask you to submit alternate materials. Participation in an interview and/or submission of materials is not a guarantee of publication or inclusion in the magazine.
By agreeing to the terms, you confirm that you understand that K Composite is an editorial publication and a publisher or editor will ultimately decide what is suitable for inclusion.
4. Free license
You will never be charged any money for your participation. You will never receive monetary compensation for your participation. In the instance of certain crowd-funded projects, you may receive a gift in exchange for your support or participation.
By agreeing to the terms, you confirm that you understand participation in an interview is voluntary and you do not expect to receive compensation nor will you be asked to provide any compensation to us.
