For and in consideration of the promises and obligations set forth herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is expressly acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

  1. TCA Specialty Products.
    TCA Specialty Products is a service of TCA for publishers who want Special Section Content. Special Section Content is defined as content related to the subjects of advertising supplements and other niche publications. "Items" means the individual stories and images (photographs, graphics, drawings, and other images) that collectively form the Special Section Content. "Content supplier" means those third party vendors who supply content to TCA for use by customers. Content suppliers include Kiplinger, Cars.com, McClatchy-Tribune Information Services, CareerBuilder and Jupiterimages Corporation.
  2. License to Use Special Section Content.
    In consideration for the fees set forth in the Publisher's Subscription Agreement or on the TCA Special Section web site (www.tmsspecialtyproducts.com) "Site"), TCA grants a non-exclusive, royalty-free license ("License") to You to distribute Special Section Content in its print product(s) and in electronic distribution of the print product, subject to the following terms and conditions: (i) You may use the Special Section Content one time only in a single issue of a single publication (print and online); for use in multiple publications TCA must be contacted and provide consent. Content may not be used as part of an advertisement. (ii) You shall publish with each Item the copyright notices, trademark notices, and attributions for TCA and any TCA licensors attached to that Item as distributed by TCA; (iii) You shall display with each TCA Item published electronically, in addition to the notices and attributions required by Paragraph ii herein, the URLs of the sources of the TCA Item (all hyperlinks to sources of content must be live at all times, provided those URLs are attached to the Item as distributed by TCA); (iv) You may abridge (cut paragraphs or sentences from) TCA Items that are not images, provided Publisher does not change the meaning of such Items; (v) You shall not otherwise edit, rewrite, or in any other way alter the content of any Item except to add specificity, including local references or other market-specific content; (vi)You shall not archive or otherwise store any Special Section Content for more than three hundred sixty five (365) days after they have been received from TCA; and (vii) Items are combined with other items from Your editorial mix, such that it would not be practicable for a recipient to reconstruct the Special Section Content service. (viii)You will not make or authorize any other publication or distribution or retransmission of Items without express prior written approval from TCA. (ix) You will not change or manipulate the content of a photograph physically or electronically. Established photo printing methods such as burning, dodging, toning, cropping and minor color adjustments are acceptable. Retouching, electronic or manual, must be limited to the removal of minor scratches or minor image flaws. (x) You shall not use any Special Section Content in any way that could be considered defamatory, pornographic, libelous, immoral, obscene or fraudulent, or illegal, either by making physical changes to it, in the juxtaposition to accompanying text or images, or otherwise. (xii) You shall not use any Special Section Content images that include people as part of any sensitive subject matters. See Jupiterimages Corporation website, (www.jupiterimages.com/help.aspx?layout=37#sensitive), for examples. Sensitive subject use pertains to both commercial and editorial uses.
