When you become a Member of Lives of the First World War, you are asked to agree to a set of Terms and Conditions. This ensures that content you create remains your property, but IWM acquires the right to reuse this material.
This doesn't mean that details uploaded to the website will all be reused for something else. Instead, it means that information and images on Lives of the First World War are available for everyone to view. It also means that we can show screenshots or examples of the site in our own marketing material, to the press, or in demonstrations.
Finally, it enables IWM to support the digital memorial on both current and future technologies, so that content is saved for future generations.
