The aim of Squiggla is to encourage participants to engage in the process of non-judgmental drawing by regularly uploading Squigglaworks made on paper or card.
All intellectual property that we created to make Squiggla, including the concept, content, graphics and copyright works (except for Squigglaworks) is owned by us (or our relevant content supplier). We own all rights in the compilation, design and layout of Squiggla.
When you upload a Squigglawork you are confirming that:
If a third party says that they own the copyright in the Squigglawork, we’ll remove the Squigglawork from Squiggla until you can show us that you own the copyright.
From time to time, we may select Squigglaworks to purchase for The Squiggla International Collection. If your Squigglawork is selected, we’ll make you an offer setting out the full terms of sale. You’ll never have to sell a Squigglawork to us, but if you do, you’ll need to assign all copyright to us and provide us with the original Squigglawork. If you’re under the age of twelve, we’ll need to talk to your parent or guardian about purchasing the Squigglawork.
We award prizes for Squigglaworks from time to time, and when we do this we’d really like to let people know about it. We’ll make sure we show you any press releases and promotional materials about the prize (and your Squiggawork) before they get published.
If you win a prize, you can arrange for your own publicity, but please get our written approval before doing so.
To provide extended storage and participation in planned expanded functionality payment of a subscription may be required. We will store as many as 200 of your images for up to 12 months at no charge.
We want to keep improving Squiggla and your experience of Squiggla. To help us do that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including technical information about your phone/tablet/computer, and apps. This will also help us to provide you with software updates, product support and other services related to Squiggla.
We may also contact you from time to time about Squiggla, congratulating you on milestone achievements, and encouraging you to keep creating Squigglaworks. Don’t worry though - we’ll never provide your personal information or contact details to any third party (other than teachers or parents where applicable) without first getting your permission.
We’d also like to help research institutions with their ongoing work in relation to Squigglaworks and education by providing them with data and Squigglaworks. However, we’ll always make sure that you cannot be identified (although we won’t screen Squigglaworks for identifying material), and only provide this anonymised data to accredited research institutions with ethics committee approved projects.
We grant you a “non-exclusive”, “non-transferable” licence to use Squiggla on your various mobile devices. What this means is that the software remains ours, but we’re happy for you use it when participating in Squiggla.
There are certain rules that you need to agree to if you want to use Squiggla:
If you break any of the above rules you must stop using Squiggla. If you don’t have a current subscription, some Squiggla features may be restricted or unavailable.
We let you use Squiggla on an “as is” basis. That means it may not be absolutely perfect, but you accept and understand that.
To the extent permitted by law:
You acknowledge and agree that your use of Squiggla is at your sole risk. Squiggla may not always be available or some functions may be temporarily unavailable. If that does happen, you won’t blame us for anything that happens (or doesn’t happen) to you as a result of you not being able to use Squiggla.
Squiggla and all related content have been created in accordance with the requirements of New Zealand law. If any sort of dispute arises in relation to your use of Squiggla, this will be governed by New Zealand law and dealt with by New Zealand Courts.
