Be Held UGC Terms and Conditions


Be Held Ltd may, on certain occasions, reach out to a wide spectrum of social media users to gain their permission to feature engaging content on our websites, social media channels and assorted promotional materials. The reason you are reading this is because Be Held has requested your permission and authorisation to use your own social media content as stated above.


You can choose to allow us to use your social media content, also referred to as ‘User Generated Content’ (UGC), by replying with the hashtag #YESBeHeldOfficial
By so doing you are agreeing to our Terms of Use and the Be Held Privacy Policy.


We reserve our right to change these Terms of Use without any advance notice by posting a revised Terms of Use. You should always remember to review these Terms of Use every time you grant authorisation or permission for Be Held to feature your own personal UGC.

You hereby grant Be Held a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, completely-paid, right to use your personal User Generated Content in any such manner as will be determined solely at Be Held’s discretion. This includes, but is in no way limited to, the Be Held webpages and social media pages that we operate. Also, in promotional advertising and emails, and other such promotional, advertising and marketing, marketing events and initiatives, and in any other form of media currently, or known hereafter. To do this, Be Held may utilise, reproduce, display, transmit, distribute and create their own derivative works either from, or by combining with other materials, or by altering as well as editing your own personal UGC, at their sole discretion and in any such manner, without any obligation to you whatsoever.

You also hereby agree and grant Be Held the right to utilise the following: your username, real name, likeness and image, as well as any descriptions of you, any locations or any other identifying information, including but in no way solely limited to your voice, in connection with any usage of your User Generated Content.
