Magazine Contributor Agreement


Guest Contributor Agreement

Any content that any individual (“Contributor”) may post on Review Tales Magazine is subject to the terms below.

By submitting or contributing to Review Tales Magazine (hereinafter referred to as “RT Magazine”), the artists/writer/journalist (hereinafter referred to as the “Contributor”), agrees to release the rights for cover photos, artwork, articles, poetry, and all other content provided to RT Magazine.

As a Contributor (“You”) agree to allow RT Magazine to publish original articles written by You (the “Posts”) in RT Magazine. You grant RT Magazine the non-exclusive, worldwide right to publish in the Magazine, syndicate, and distribute all or a portion of the Posts in any language and format worldwide.

You grant RT Magazine the right to use Your name, likeness, information about You, and the logo of Your website, if applicable, in connection with the Posts.

Except for the rights granted RT Magazine in this agreement, You retain all rights, including copyright, in the Posts.

You represent and warrant that You have the right to grant these rights; that the Posts are original; that they do not knowingly contain any untrue statements, invade any right of privacy, or infringe upon any statutory or common-law copyright, or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; and that all statements in the Posts that are asserted as facts are true and/or based upon reasonable research for accuracy.

You agree to cooperate in the defence of any legal action brought against RT Magazine from the publication of the Posts. You agree to reveal to RT Magazine any actual or potential conflict of interest, including but not limited to any financial interest in any product, firm, or commercial venture relating to the subject of the Posts. RT Magazine reserves the right to remove any of the Posts that violate its publishing standards, available on the web.

RT Magazine may illustrate the Posts. You grant RT Magazine the right to edit the Posts for publication.

RT Magazine reserves the right to make changes to your submission without notice. Possible changes include rewriting a title or subtitle, reformatting section headings and paragraphs, changing a featured image, and removing undisclosed affiliate links. We will often make these editorial changes instead of rejecting a submission. If the author does not wish editorial changes made by the editorial team, a private note should be left at the top of the submission indicating the writer would prefer the editorial team reject submissions not fit for publication. In the event the submission is rejected, the author will need to make the necessary changes before re-submitting.

Within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Work, the Publisher shall notify you whether it accepts or rejects the Work for publication. It is mutually and expressly understood that the contributor is not entitled to nor expects any present or future salary, wages, or other benefits for its submission.

Print, Electronic and Digital Rights. We have the right to publish the Work in print, digital or electronic form. 

Modification of Published Content

A published Post cannot be modified or deleted after 24-hours. Exceptions during the 24-hour period include:

Typos or grammatical issues
Internal broken links
Minor fixes in references

With the few exceptions mentioned above, no modifications are possible after Posts have been published. It is at the discretion of the editorial staff to make changes within the 24-hour post-publication period. In some cases, we may reject to make a minor change if it was already in the final submission.

Removal of Published Content

In exceptional circumstances, RT Magazine reserves the right to remove Posts, links, or other content from RT Magazine’s online platforms. Such action may be taken when (i) RT Magazine has been advised that Posts are defamatory, infringes a third party’s intellectual property right, right to privacy, or other legal rights, or is otherwise unlawful; (ii) a court or government order has been issued, or is likely to be issued, requiring removal of such Posts. Removal may be temporary or permanent. Metadata (e.g. title and authors) will be retained and will be accompanied by a statement explaining why the Post has been removed.

This agreement is governed by the laws of the United States of America and Canada.

By submitting Posts to RT Magazine, You indicate acceptance of these terms.
