The delivered work shall be considered work-for-hire under the UK Copyright Act. In the event the delivered work does not meet the requirements of work-for-hire or when UK Copyright Act does not apply, the Freelancer expressly agrees to assign to User the copyright in the delivered work. All transfer and assignment of intellectual property to User shall be subject to full payment for the Gig and the delivery may not be used if payment is cancelled for any reason. For removal of doubt, in custom created work (such as art work, design work, report generation etc.), the delivered work shall be the exclusive property of User, and Freelancer assigns all rights, title and interest in the delivered work. Some Gigs (including for custom created work) charge additional payments for a Commercial Use License. This means that if you purchase the Gig for personal use, you will own all rights you require for such use, and will not need the Commercial Use License. If you intend to use it for any charge or other consideration, or for any purpose that is directly or indirectly in connection with any business, or other undertaking intended for profit, you will need to buy the Commercial Use License through a Gig and will have broader rights that cover your business use.
For Voice Over Gigs, when the work is delivered, and subject to payment, the User is purchasing basic rights, (which means the User is paying a one time fee allowing them to use the work forever and for any purpose except for commercials, radio, television and internet commercial spots). If you intend to use the Voice Over to promote a product and/or service (with the exception of paid marketing channels), you will need to purchase the Commercial Rights (Buy-Out) through Gig. If you intend to use the Voice Over in radio, television and internet commercials, you will need to purchase the Full Broadcast Rights (Buy-Out) through Gig. For further information on the type of buy-outs, please read below.
Freelancers further confirm that whatever information they receive from the User, which is not public domain, shall be kept confidential and shall not be shared or used for any purpose whatsoever other than for the delivery of the ordered work to the User.
Furthermore, users (both Users and Freelancers) agree that unless they explicitly indicate otherwise, the content users voluntarily create/upload to Hunarly, including Gig texts, photos, videos, usernames, user photos, user videos and any other information, including the display of delivered work, may be used by Hunarly for no consideration for marketing and/or other purposes.

By purchasing a Commercial Rights (Buy-Out) with your order, in addition to the basic rights, the Freelancer grants you with a license to use the Voice Over for any corporate, promotional and non-broadcast purposes.

By purchasing a Full Broadcast Rights (Buy-Out) with your order, in addition to the Commercial Rights, the Freelancer grants you with a license for full broadcasting, which includes internet, radio, and TV “paid channels” including (by way of example): television commercials, radio commercials, internet radio, and music/video streaming platforms, and strictly excludes any illegal, immoral or defamatory purpose.
