Use of Materials on the Platforms

The Creative Academy has created its various Platforms to provide information about the Creative Academy and its post-graduate Master of Arts programme for your personal use. You may download one computer copy, download the application on to your mobile device or print one copy of the material made available to you for your own non-commercial, educational, private or domestic use only, provided that proprietary notices, in particular intellectual property notices such as copyright©, trademark™, are preserved intact and are not modified, deleted or changed. Unless otherwise stated, you should assume that everything that you see or read on the Platforms (such as images, photographs, including any person represented in the photographs, illustrations, icons, texts, video clips, music, written and other materials) (“Creative Academy Material“) are protected by legislation such as copyright, designs and trademark legislation and under international treaty provisions and national laws worldwide.

You are not authorised to sell, reproduce, distribute, communicate, modify, display, publicly perform, report or otherwise prepare derivative or second hand works based on or use any Creative Academy Material in any way for any public or commercial purposes. Furthermore, Creative Academy Material may not be displayed or communicated on any other platform, in a networked computer environment or on any other digital platform for any purpose whatsoever. In the event of breach of any of these Terms of Use, your permission to use Creative Academy Material will automatically terminate and any copies made of Creative Academy Material must be immediately destroyed. Any unauthorised use of Creative Academy Material may infringe copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes.

Your submissions and unsolicited communications

This section concerns communications sent to the Creative Academy. It does not concern the communication of personal information to the Creative Academy by phone or through the Platform. The latter is governed by the rules stipulated in the Privacy Policy.

Any unsolicited communication or material that you transmit to the Creative Academy via the Platforms, by electronic mail or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any data, questions or answers, comments, suggestions, or the like will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary by Creative Academy. By sending communications to the Creative Academy, you automatically grant the Creative Academy a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive licence to use, reproduce, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, perform, and display such communication(s) alone, or as a part of other works in any form, media, or technology whether now known of hereafter developed and to sublicense such rights to anyone. Anything that you transmit may be used by the Creative Academy and its affiliated companies for any purpose, including but not limited to reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast and posting, or developing, manufacturing and marketing products using such information.

Furthermore, Creative Academy enjoys a worldwide reputation for design for applied arts in a number of different fields, notably jewellery, watches and fashion accessories. Its students and teachers are highly trained designers and therefore the Creative Academy cannot agree to or accept to be the receiver of unsolicited proposals of collaboration. Indeed, it is conceivable that the Creative Academy may already be working on similar ideas and/or creations. Consequently, you are advised that Creative Academy is not interested in receiving ideas or other proposals relating to creations they may wish to submit.

The Creative Academy does not warrant that the functional and/or technical aspects of the Platforms or the Creative Academy Material will be error free or that the Platforms, Creative Academy Material or the servers that make them available are free of viruses or other harmful components.
