INFORMED CONSENT AND LICENSE AGREEMENT

For all permission and release information below, “826michigan,”  “we” and “us” collectively refers to 826michigan and/or 826 National.  The "Author" refers to the student participating in 826michigan's program. This form is an agreement between the participating student if over 18 or the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the participating student if under 18 and 826michigan.


Please note that although participation in 826michigan’s programs is voluntary, once this agreement is signed, it cannot be withdrawn and remains in effect even after the student/Author is no longer participating in any 826michigan programming. By signing below, you acknowledge that you agree to each of the terms and conditions of this Informed Consent and License Agreement, and agree to waive any and all claims for compensation from 826michigan, beyond a free copy of any book that includes the Author's Work.

PUBLISHING PERMISSION

This form grants 826michigan the right (but not the obligation) to edit and publish the Author’s Work (“Work” includes the student’s own writings, audio and visual) in any manner in any type of publication, media, or materials affiliated with 826michigan, now existing or which may be created in the future. Each student whose work is published will receive a free copy of the book in which their work is included.

The Author understands and agrees that 826michigan has the right, but not the obligation, to consent to the publishing of excerpts of the Author’s work in newspapers, magazines, online media, or other publications in order to promote not only your student’s work but also to support or publicize the nonprofit work of 826michigan and its partners and promotions.   

This is a non-exclusive agreement. The author retains rights to their work, and they can also publish all work outside of projects with 826michigan. Publication elsewhere has no effect on 826michigan’s rights under this agreement. The Author promises that the work she or he submits is “original,” which means that she or he created the work and wrote the story and did not copy someone else’s story or writing. The Author also promises us that if the story is based on real people and actual events, that the description of such people and events is true and does not disclose private or personal facts about anyone else without first obtaining that person’s permission in writing. We also ask students not to use any inappropriate language in their stories or other writing and not to write about incidents that may hurt, degrade, or endanger others.


FILM, PHOTOGRAPHY, AUDIO, AND MEDIA PERMISSION
During 826michigan programming, 826michigan may document the work of the student authors through photography, film, video, audio, or other recording techniques. Students agree that these images and recordings may thereafter appear in 826michigan publications, reports, film productions, websites, or social or online media platforms. This documentation shares the hard work of the students and more information about 826michigan’s programs and impact. No material will be used for commercial purposes. 826michigan may also wish to use this material in promotional materials (which may include 826michigan fact books, websites, or social or online media platforms) on the radio, television, in press articles, or other media about 826michigan, including partnerships and promotions benefiting 826michigan.
