Intellectual property rights as of 18 July 2017.

The following applies with regard to intellectual property rights and copyrights relating to the AVBOB Poetry Competition website and website content:

Images and content
All images, graphics, files, texts and other content on this website are protected by copyright, registered trademarks or other intellectual property rights. The copying, publication, processing or other use in electronic media, by other websites, print media or in other ways, whether for private or commercial use, requires our prior written consent, to which there is no entitlement.
We strive to adhere to the intellectual property rights and copyrights of the images, graphics, files, texts and other content used on this website in all publications.

Intellectual property rights and copyrights
All intellectual property rights and copyrights that are or are not mentioned or published on our website, and that have been acquired by ourselves or, in some cases, third parties, are fully subject to the regulations of the relevant South African and international intellectual property laws and the rights and entitlements of the registered or non-registered rights holders. The fact that intellectual property rights and copyrights held by ourselves or third parties are or are not mentioned or published, must not be taken as a basis for concluding that such rights do not exist.

Terms of use
You will not acquire any right, title or interest, including any intellectual property rights, in or to the website and/or the website content other than those rights expressly granted to you in these terms. Where any of the website content has been licensed to us or belongs to any third party, your rights of use will also be subject to any terms and conditions which that licensor or third party imposes from time to time, and you agree to comply with such third party terms and conditions.

Accordingly, any unauthorised copying, reproduction, retransmission, distribution, dissemination, sale, publication, broadcast or other circulation or exploitation of such material as aforesaid, or any component thereof, will constitute an infringement of such copyright and other intellectual property rights.

Variations of these terms
Subject to the variations or amendments provided for in this paragraph, no other variation or amendment, in any form whatsoever, of these terms will be enforceable or binding on us unless we have agreed to such variation or amendment in writing. For this purpose, "writing" shall be writing on paper signed in ink by our authorised representative and specifically excludes any writing that may be in electronic format.

We are entitled and reserve the right to vary or amend these terms from time to time and at our sole discretion. Any amendments to these terms will be displayed on the website from time to time. On the first occasion on which you use the website after we have amended the terms, you will be notified that amendments to the terms have been effected and, if you continue to use the services thereafter, the amended terms will immediately be treated as being effective and binding upon you.
