This license does not authorize the exploitation of your contribution for profit or commercial use.

The material you submit must have been created by you, wholly original, and shall not be copied from or based upon any other photographic, literary, or other material, except to the extent that such material is in the public domain, or you have the permission of the copyright owner, or its use is allowed by "Fair Dealing" as prescribed by the terms of Canadian copyright laws.

In granting this permission, you warrant that you are 18 years of age or older and have the full power and authority to consent to this agreement. If you are a minor, you must have a parent or legal guardian submit material on your behalf.
In granting this permission, you warrant that your submission does not infringe on any existing copyright or contain any libelous matter, nor invade any third-party rights of privacy or publicity. The Sport Oral History Archive has no obligation to use or publish your contribution. You retain ownership of and copyright in the material you share.
