If, despite our policy, you choose to send us content, information, ideas, suggestions, or other materials, you further agree that This World Outside is free to use any such content, information, ideas, suggestions or other materials, for any purposes whatsoever, including, without limitation, developing and marketing products and services, without any liability or payment of any kind to you.
