7. PRESS PROFILES
Every BonoVox PR press release includes a press profile. Press profiles represent a snapshot of each press release on our press wire, including an image, dateline, press release title, sub-title (in most cases), and a link to the press release.
Standard Press Profiles
A standard, quarter-page press profile is listed on our press wire in order of release date and time. Standard press profiles are listed below our featured press profiles on the front page of our Site and matriculate off of the front page and into the press archives after three (3) business days.
Standard press profiles receive one mention over three business days across BonoVox PR's social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter). A mention may be exclusive to one standard press profile or may include other standard press profiles and may be limited to specific social media platforms. The time and date of all social media posts on our social media platforms are determined by us.
You may upgrade from a standard quarter-page press profile to a third-page, half-page, or full-page press profile ("Featured Press") for an additional fee.
Featured Press Profiles
The Featured Press section displays your press release more prominently, with a more extensive press profile displayed above the general press wire for five (5) business days. Featured press profiles matriculate out of the featured press section into the press archives after five business days. Featured Press profiles receive additional social media exposure across BonoVox PR's social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter). Full-page press profiles receive three mentions, half-page press profiles receive two mentions, and third-page press release profiles receive one over five business days. Each mention may be exclusive to one featured press profile or include other featured profiles and may be limited to specific social media platforms. The time and date of all social media posts on our social media platforms are determined by us.
Press Categories & Placement
The BonoVox PR press wire is organized into five (5) categories; Business, Entertainment, Health & Life, Public Interest, and Science & Tech. The press topic determines which category a press release will be featured in.
If we determine a press release is relevant to the readers of more than one category on our press wire, we will cross-list your press release to no more than three (3) separate categories.
8. CONTRIBUTION LICENSE
By posting your press release ("Contributions") to the Site, you automatically represent and warrant that you have the right to grant to us an unrestricted, unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free, fully-paid, worldwide right, and license to host, use, copy, reproduce, disclose, sell, resell, publish, broadcast, retitle, archive, store, cache, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, transmit, excerpt (in whole or in part), and distribute such Contributions (including, without limitation, your image and voice) for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise, and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such Contributions, and grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. The use and distribution may occur in any media format and channel. This license will apply to any form, media, or technology now known or hereafter developed and includes our use of your name, company name, and franchise name, as applicable, and any of the trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, and personal and commercial images you provide. You waive all moral rights in your Contributions. You warrant that moral rights have not otherwise been asserted in your Contributions. We do not claim any ownership over your Contributions. You retain full ownership of all of your Contributions and any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights associated with your Contributions. We are not liable for any statements or representations in your Contributions provided by you in any area on the Site. You are solely responsible for your Contributions to the Site. You expressly agree to exonerate us from any responsibility and refrain from any legal action against us regarding your Contributions. We have the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, (1) to edit, redact, or otherwise change any Contributions; (2) to re-categorize any Contributions to place them in more appropriate locations on the Site; and (3) to pre-screen or delete any Contributions at any time and for any reason, without notice. We have no obligation to monitor your Contributions.
9. PRESS RELEASE SYNDICATION
Press release syndication entails creating and distributing press releases based on newsworthy events about your company. We do not claim ownership rights to original press releases produced by third-party entities and linked to by us.
We reserve the right to modify the presentation of any press release at our sole discretion, including but not limited to changing the look and format of the press release.
A press release syndicated by us does not constitute any endorsement by BonoVox PR or its affiliates of any third-party site. BonoVox PR and its affiliates do not control, nor are we responsible for, the availability or accuracy of such third-party sites or any information, content, products, or services accessible from third-party sites.
If you are a publisher who does not want your content syndicated, indexed, or linked to by BonoVox PR, please contact us. We will remove the links in question on a case-by-case basis.
We upload new press releases to our press wire twice daily (10 am PDT and 2 pm PDT), excluding Saturday, Sunday, and Federal Holidays. Press releases submitted after 2 pm PDT will be processed the following business day at 9 am PDT. We require a minimum of 24 hours to prepare a press release for syndication.
Time to Wire
We will attempt to add your press release to our press wire for syndication within your chosen timeframe. By accepting our Press Release Submission Guidelines, you acknowledge that selecting a press release turnaround time of either (a) 72 hours, (b) 48 hours, or (c) 24 hours does not automatically constitute editorial approval of your press release by us within the period you select. We reserve the right not to publish press releases that don't meet our submission guidelines, or if we don't have all of the assets (digital files in the form of images, video, audio, and other documents), we need to finish the press release on time. For this reason, you must respond promptly to our approval requests throughout the submission process.
We offer three different levels of press release distribution. Our Silver package ensures your press release will be: (a) Indexed on Major Search Engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing), (b) Distributed to registered BonoVox PR presswire readers, bloggers, and journalists, and (c) Distributed on BonoVox PR social media channels: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter. Our Gold & Platinum packages ensure your press release will be: (a) Indexed on Major Search Engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing), (b) Distributed to Major News Sites (AP, Google News, Yahoo News, Bing News), (c) Distributed to registered BonoVox PR press wire readers, bloggers, and journalists, and (d) Distributed on BonoVox PR social media channels: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter.
We make reasonable efforts to keep our content off of sites that we determine to be unsuitable for reasons that include but are not limited to those that:
(a) Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age. (b) Modify the names of the Publishers or fail to give proper source attribution without the Publisher's permission. (c) Violate intellectual property rights.
10. THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE AND CONTENT

12. SITE MANAGEMENT
14. DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (DMCA) NOTICE AND POLICY
We respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that any material available on or through the Site infringes upon any copyright you own or control, please notify our Designated Copyright Agent using the contact information provided below (a "Notification"). A copy of your Notification will be sent to the person who posted or stored the material addressed in the Notification. Pursuant to federal law, please be advised that you may be held liable for damages if you make material misrepresentations in a Notification. Thus, if you are not sure that material located on or linked to by the Site infringes your copyright, you should first contact an attorney.
All Notifications should meet the requirements of DMCA 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3) and include the following information: (1) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (2) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on the Site are covered by the Notification, a representative list of such works on the Site; (3) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (4) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (5) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (6) a statement that the information in the Notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed upon.
Suppose you believe your own copyrighted material has been removed from the Site due to a mistake or misidentification. In that case, you may submit a written counter-notification to our Designated Copyright Agent using the contact information provided below (a "Counter Notification"). To be an effective Counter Notification under the DMCA, your Counter Notification must include substantially the following: (1) identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled; (2) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court in which your address is located, or if your address is outside the United States, for any judicial district in which we are located; (3) a statement that you will accept service of process from the party that filed the Notification or the party's agent; (4) your name, address, and telephone number; (5) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and (6) your physical or electronic signature. Suppose you send us a valid, written Counter Notification meeting the requirements described above. In that case, we will restore your removed or disabled material unless we first receive notice from the party filing the Notification informing us that such party has filed a court action to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity related to the material in question. Please note that if you materially misrepresent that the disabled or removed content was removed by mistake or misidentification, you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorney's fees. Filing a false Counter Notification constitutes perjury.
