Pixlee TurnTo will deliver your Syndicated Content to all Qualified Recipients, unless you specify in writing to Pixlee TurnTo individual Qualified Recipients that should or should not receive this content, in which case Pixlee TurnTo will deliver your Syndicated Content only to the specified recipients.

2. You will follow the following policies in Syndicating your content, and Pixlee TurnTo will apply these policies in providing the Syndication services under this section:

  1. No Cherry Picking. You will Syndicate all content moderated to a “published” status. (i.e. You will not selectively Syndicate only certain content within this set (for example, only favorable content)).
  2. Authenticity. You will apply appropriate tags to identifying all Syndicated Content where the author received any monetary incentive to produce such content, including receiving a sample of the product.  You warrant that, to your knowledge, all Syndicated Content represents the authentic views of its authors regarding the products or services to which the content applies.
  3. No Personal Data. No Personal Data will be included in your Syndicated Content.  As used herein “Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.  The display name of the content author is not considered Personal Data.
  4. No re-syndication. Your Syndicated Content will not contain any all content which was Syndicated to you or which you otherwise do not have the rights to provide for Syndication.

3. Syndicated Content is subject to the content moderation policies of the Recipient; you acknowledge recipients may not publish all of the Syndicated Content you provide.

4. If you determine that individual pieces of Syndicated Content should no longer be Syndicated, you may contact Pixlee TurnTo at syndication@pixleeturnto.com and Pixlee TurnTo will promptly remove such pieces of content from the Recipients to which it has been syndicated. For each piece of content which you request to be removed, you must provide the same product ID and review ID as when the content was originally provided. Pixlee TurnTo cannot support removal requests without this information. Ad hoc removal is not intended for the bulk removal of content as, for example, in a case where your rights to a body of syndicated content have expired or been lost. For such bulk removal requests, Pixlee TurnTo may charge a service fee.

5. At any time, by written notice, you may revoke permission for Syndication of your content to any recipients, and Pixlee TurnTo will promptly stop delivery to those recipients and instruct them to cease use of the content and destroy all copies.  At any time, by written notice, you may cancel all Syndication through Pixlee TurnTo, and Pixlee TurnTo will instruct all recipients to discontinue all use of your content and destroy all copies of it.
