Integrated Brands Terms of Use, Copyright and Trademark Statement

Integrated Brands (herein referred to as “the site”) is an online open-content collaborative website designed to showcase the best of integrated strategic brand communications.

It was conceived by Beakbane Marketing Inc. of Toronto. However its contents are the result of users uploading content and volunteer editors in the same spirit as Wikipedia.

Users who log-in with their real names and a valid e-mail address can become contributors and add content including, text, audio files, image files, video files that relate to brands and their communications. The site permits contributors to share third party links that relate to the content. This can be a link to the agency’s website responsible for the brand content as well as external links to related blogs and websites.

Some contributors may be designated as a “Trusted Contributor” in which case they will be permitted to make edits and over-ride the additions of contributors.

Contributors can log-in and flag content as inappropriate or change/correct it. Where content is changed a Trusted Contributor may review the changes and choose to accept or reject them or make further changes. If a contributor is perceived to be making inappropriate changes their log-in rights might be curtailed at the sole judgement of Integrated Brands.

Note that the content of Integrated Brands might be wrong and misleading and there is no warranty of accuracy, explicit or implied.  Please note that the contents on the site may be removed or edited without notification.
