This agreement describes the legally binding agreement between you (“You”, “Content Contributor”, “Content Creator”) and Feast Mash Inc. (“We”, “Us”, “Our Website”). The terms below describe your rights and obligations in regards to contributing your recipe content to be licensed. By submitting your content to us, you agree to have that same content used and licensed by us on a non-exclusive basis.
We are using the term “Content”/”Recipe Content” to describe the recipes you contribute. Recipe content includes the images and text found in a food recipe that you choose to contribute.

We currently offer a single type of licence (“Standard Content License”) that is used by content users to license your recipe content. The terms of this license are outlined below.
Standard Content License:
The Standard Content License is the only license currently available on our site. This license grants the content user worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable rights to use and reproduce the recipe content in perpetuity subject to the limitations set forth herein:

It also grants the content user the right to make edits to the text and images.
a. Payment: You will be paid a royalty for each unique recipe download by content users. When a content user decides to license one of your recipes, you get paid a royalty for that license. This is a single royalty payment that grants the content user the license to use your content indefinitely as described here under “Standard Content License”. Your payment will be determined based on the payment schedule. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the payment schedule.
We reserve the right to change the payment schedule at any time and without any advance notices. It is your responsibility to stay up to date with the most recent payment schedule.
