When you share content, you agree to allowing Sketchers United to present the art to others on its website and other media channels. You still own your content and you do not allow any other person to use your work, unless you give explicit permission.

In such cases you shall select the "Sensitive" option when sharing your content. NOTE: You are in no way allowed to post content described in "Forbidden content" above. This option exists for content that is within the rules but still might be upsetting or controversial.
