Terms and Conditions for User Generated Content

There are times when we will reach out to social media users to seek their permission to feature their images, videos or other content (“Content”) on our various sites, social channels and promotional and marketing materials (“Our Platforms”) for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

You are reading these terms and conditions (“Terms & Conditions”) because you have either: (a) uploaded a photo and tagged @Superdrug or #superdrug, which has alerted us to your content, or (b) posted content relating to brands associated with us that we would like to feature, and we are requesting your permission to use the Content in this way. We will always display your social media account name alongside the Content.

Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully and, if you have any questions, please contact us.

1. User generated content

1.2. If you do not respond, or respond #No, your Content will not be used at all by us and we will not contact you again about the same Content.

1.3. We appreciate that sometimes you may change your mind and no longer wish to share the Content in this way. If this is the case, you can withdraw your permission by sending us a private direct message.

2.2. In addition to the above, you also agree to waive any moral rights to which you may be entitled in relation to the Content.

  • the Content is your original work;
  • you own all rights in the Content or you have all required licenses, rights, and/or consents to publish the Content and allow us to use it;
  • use of the Content will not infringe the rights of any third party;
  • you agree to these Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy; and
  • you are over 18 years of age.

3. General

3.1. If any of these Terms & Conditions are declared invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed to be deleted from these Terms & Conditions and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
