All photographic material, CDs, DVDs, the CV and any texts or catalogues submitted for the prize or to the web site for insertion will not be returned, but archived by the Organiser. No Content from the web site may be copied, reproduced, framed, hyperlinked, republished, downloaded, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way without permission either from the user who inserted the content or the Organiser. If you wish to create a link to the web sites, you may do so provided you inform the Organiser and agree to cease such a link upon request from the Organiser.
RESPONSIBILITIES FOR CONTENT
Those persons who upload text, images, or videos onto prize web sites, and/or those persons who upload on behalf of participating artists, are personally responsible for the texts and for the visual content of the uploaded images. The Organiser reserves the right to remove any defamatory, libelous, or obscene texts or images which might violate rights of any party or give rise to liability or violate any law, unless these are motivated in writing by the artist.
CHILDREN & MINORS
The Web sites are directed to adults over the age of 18 years old. The Organiser cannot prohibit minors from visiting the Web sites. Parents, guardians and those persons responsible for supervising children and minors must decide which materials are appropriate for such children.
FREE MEMBER ACCOUNT
Everyone can sign-up for a FREE personal page in Celeste Network to upload unlimited artworks, events, projects and notices, as well as communicate with other members. There are two types of member accounts in Celeste Network: Basic and Premium.
All members who participate in prizes and calls organised by Celeste or have Premium membership receive preferential treatment and placement in important online sections such as the homepage and in features. Each member chooses his or her member's name and password, which is unique, but can be changed. Each member is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his or her password, as well as all activities which are begun or occur under the member's name. Members must reveal their true identity by compiling their name and surname in the given registration boxes, those members wanting to disguise their name in the network can do so by filling in the box 'psuedonym' with an alternative name which will appear on the website - failure to insert one's name and address on registration could result in the registrar not being considered an entitled member of Celeste. Your right to use these web sites is not transferable. Any password you choose or given to you to obtain information is not transferable to another individuals or organisations. The Organiser reserves the right to refuse membership and/or cancel existing member accounts and their contents (images of artworks, candidate works to prizes, texts, videos, etc.), without warning or reimbursement of entry fees, if he deems the member's behaviour online to be offensive, difamatory, obscene or irregular to the normal conduct of this online community - the interpretation of this conduct will be the Organiser's sole interpretation. Celeste Network can at all times decide on the validity of votes, preferences, favourites and other funcitions given to members in the network and remove them if necessary, including if they result from errors or malfunctions in the system which administer these functions.
