Some ADAPT websites allow users to submit material. This material may be in the form of posts, messages, questions, comments, ratings, photographs and pictures (including pictures of the user and other representations of the user’s name and likeness), or other content in any form (collectively “User Content”). By posting User Content on this site or any ADAPT website, you hereby grant ADAPT Network an unrestricted, transferable and sub-licensable, irrevocable, royalty-free, world-wide, and perpetual license to reproduce, distribute, publicly display, make derivative works of, and otherwise use the User Content in any media whatsoever now known or later invented throughout the world for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or not.

2.1 Ad Revenue Sharing Program
Some ADAPT websites allow users to earn ad revenue from their user content (see section 2), as part of the ADAPT Ad Revenue Sharing Program. See specific details based on each website.
ADAPT Community allows users to submit User Content in the form of posts and earn ad revenue from this User Content. The ad revenue you earn is based on a fixed CPM (Cost per 1000 Impressions) of $0.5 (US Dollars). This means that you will earn $0.5 for every 1000 impressions (page impressions) that your User Content receives. Page impressions are tracked with Google Analytics. Page impressions and ad revenue earned can be monitored from your ADAPT Community account. The CPM at which ad revenue is earned is subject to change at any time and will affect any unpaid ad revenue.
Ad revenue payments will be made to a “PayPal” account. Therefore, in order to receive payment of any ad revenue you have earned, you will need to provide your correct “PayPal” email address. ADAPT Network will make an effort to (but shall not be obliged to) notify you when payment of ad revenue has been completed.
You (the User) is solely responsible for declaring any ad revenue earned from your User Content as part of the ADAPT Ad Revenue Sharing Program in accordance to the laws of your country of residence.
