Permission to Use Content Agreement

  • We love your image, video, photograph, testimonial, or sound recording (the “Content”) and know others will benefit from experiencing it. As you consider allowing us to publish your Content, we want to make sure you know exactly how we intend to use it. Please note that only those persons over the age of majority can provide their permission. If you are under age please disregard this request. 

    You can provide your permission for 3M Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates and assigns (“3M”) to use your Content for 3M’s advertising, trade and commercial purposes, publicity or publication, by replying to our Direct Message (DM) or our social media post (e.g. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or other) with #yes3MPPS. By providing your permission, you represent and warrant that you own the Content and that there are no other entities with ownership claims over it. You grant 3M the non-exclusive and non-revocable commercial right to reproduce the Content in any form (including, but not limited to, video, internet posting, reproduction, display, email, publication and distribution) either through our own services or services provided by third parties, throughout the world in any medium now known or later developed and without restriction or limitation. You agree that your Content may be used by 3M or by others under 3M’s direction to create derivative works either alone or in conjunction with sketches, cartoons, captions, films, art work, textural matter or other photographs. You agree that the term Content and your consent includes and extends to the vehicle(s) and location(s) where the Content occurs (the “Property”), along with its contents, accessories and other visible items in the Content.   

    You waive any right to inspect and/or approve the finished work incorporating the Content or the advertising copy that may be used in connection therewith or the use of which said finished work may be applied. Further, you waive any claims to royalties with regards to your Content or our finished work. 

    Last, you agree that if any provision, or any portion of any provision, contained herein is determined to be invalid under any statute or rule of law, then it shall, to that extent alone, be deemed omitted, and the remainder of this Permission to Use Content Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. This Permission to Use Content Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of Minnesota.

    If you don’t agree to these terms, we completely understand and no further action is required. We are thrilled to see 3M as a part of your page and look forward to seeing any new Content you post as well. Thanks again!
