Terms & Conditions

The legal side of things.

Terms of Use

The following document outlines Rollick’s (the “site”) terms of use. By accessing this Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use.

Author's Right

Work(s) are any materials that have been submitted to Rollick by contributors, including images, video, sound, and text. The data and content on the Site, except Work(s), as well as the selection, organisation, coordination, compilation and overall look and feel of the Site (collectively, the “Collection”) are the intellectual property of Vanguard Creative Pty Ltd (“Rollick,” “we,” or “us”).

The copyright of Work(s) published by Rollick belong to the contributor. The copyright of the Collection belongs to Rollick.

You must own the intellectual property in Work(s) that you submit to Rollick. In accepting such Work(s), Rollick will take it as given that you have asserted such rights. In submitting Work(s) to Rollick, you are granting us the licence to publish the content on the the Rollick Magazine website.

All Work(s) will be correctly attributed to the contributor. Rollick will honour any requests to withdraw Work(s) from the publication. If any contributor wishes to withdraw their Work(s), they should contact us, and their material will be withdrawn.

Rollick reserves the right to publish or not publish submitted Work(s).

Contributor Submissions

You agree that if you submit Work(s) to Rollick you shall be solely responsible for your own Work(s) and the consequences of posting or publishing such. When submitting Work(s), you affirm, represent, and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorise us to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all Work(s) to enable inclusion and use of the Work(s) in the manner contemplated by Rollick, in accordance with these Terms of Use.

You retain all of your copyright rights in your Work(s), except as set forth herein. By submitting Work(s) to Rollick, you:

  1. hereby grant Rollick a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licenseable, assignable and transferable license to display, perform, use, reproduce, distribute, publish, create derivative works of, perform, edit and disseminate by all media, whether now known or hereafter devised, create derivative works based thereon, and/or insert the Work(s) in connection with Rollick’s publishing activities;
  2. grant each user of the Site a non-exclusive license to access your Work(s) through the Site, and distribute or share the Work(s) as permitted through the functionality of the Site and under these Terms of Use;
  3. you are not entitled to any compensation for any Work(s) for any reason, unless expressly agreed to by the written consent of all parties;
  4. we do not endorse any Work(s) or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and we expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with Work(s).

We will remove certain content if properly notified that such Work(s) infringe on another’s intellectual property rights. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to remove Work(s) without prior notice.

In other words, what we are saying is: If you send us a painting or a poem, or any other submission, you are agreeing that you own the work you sent us, and have the right to distribute and otherwise use it. When you send it to Rollick, you are giving us the right to feature it on our site, and in any Rollick-branded derivative work (eg: print publications or videos) in “perpetuity,” or “for as long as we’d like to.” Payment for any submission must be agreed upon in writing by both you and Rollick. Rollick reserves the right to take down submissions at any point.

Breach of Copyright

If Rollick publishes Work(s) that you think infringes your copyright, please email us at info [at] rollickmag.com and we’ll address your concerns. If we determine we’ve made a mistake, the Work(s) will be immediately withdrawn from the publication.

However, if the Work(s) falls into one of the categories listed above (see the Contributor Submissions section), and we believe that our use is legitimate, we may not remove it from the site. If you’ve corresponded with Rollick and thereafter choose to pursue a letter of demand for breach of copyright, please note that we’ll respond only to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).

To file a letter of demand for breach of copyright, you must provide a written communication (by email—to info [at ] rollickmag.com —with an attached and signed PDF) that sets forth the items specified below. If we do not respond in 10 business days, please write again.

To enable us to address your concerns, please provide the following information:

  • outline your exclusive rights as the copyright owner (including the exact URL of the page containing the alleged infringement that you want removed);
  • explain how the recipient has infringed these rights;
  • outline how you would like to remedy the situation;
  • advise that if an adequate response is not received in a specified amount of time the writer has the right to commence legal proceedings; and
  • provide a document which can be used as evidence in any court proceedings to prove that you informed the recipient of your rights and gave them an opportunity to rectify the breach.

Please also provide us with contact information, including an email address, as well as a phone number.

Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and legal fees) if you materially misrepresent that any material on Rollick infringes your copyrights.
