Contribution Terms of Service

You are being asked to contribute your recollections, photographic images, recipes, and any metadata associated with your submission(s) to the COVID Food Archive, which is creating a digital record of individual and communal experiences during the COVID-19 epidemic.

You may only submit material created entirely by you and not copied from or based, in whole or in part, upon any other photographic, literary, or other material, except to the extent that such material is in the public domain, or you have permission of the copyright owner, or its use is allowed by “Fair Use” as prescribed by the terms of United States copyright law. If you would like to refer or nominate material which you do not own, please contact us at info@covidfoodarchive.org.

By submitting content through this form, you are granting the COVID Food Archive and The Ohio State University permission to disseminate, preserve, and use that content in connection with its educational and research mission, including promotional purposes, in all media in perpetuity. You retain ownership of and copyright in the material you share.

If you indicate on the form that your submission is “public,” your material may be published on the web (with or without your name, depending on what you have indicated) as part of the COVID Food Archive’s digital collections or exhibits. Your submissions - whether “public” or not - may be anonymized and used in academic research conducted by scholars affiliated with the COVID Food Archive in academic articles, book chapters, and other publications. Your material will only be available to The Ohio State University (OSU)-approved researchers.

Submitted material must not violate any confidentiality, privacy, security or other laws. Please be aware that all submissions and any information associated with the submissions (email address, descriptive information, etc.) may be provided to federal, state, or local law enforcement or other government agencies pursuant to a lawful subpoena or otherwise as required by law.

We reserve the right to discard or mark private any submission that OSU staff identify as irrelevant or for any other reason within their professional judgment. OSU is not obligated to include your content in this project or preserve it in perpetuity.
