Contributing information to the website

The website gives you the opportunity to add ‘Your Stories’ using information and material of your own or other public sources. Adding a story is easy to do and is the main purpose of the website. Shropshire Council (‘the Council’) shall have no responsibility or liability for the content or activities of any other websites which you may choose to link with.

If you do publish content on the website you must not:

  1. publish anything that violates the rights of any third party;
  2. publish something that you do not own the rights in (including copyright) (or do not have permission from the rights owner to publish). Once published on the website, the Council cannot control how other people may use that content; therefore it is important that you have permission to publish from the rights holder;
  3. include anything that could be considered offensive, inappropriate or defamatory (at the discretion of the Council);
  4. break the law, for example by saying something libelous, or by posting something which results in a criminal offence;
  5. share the personal information of living people without their permission. You’re responsible for managing content you create, including using privacy settings that are made available through the website. You may publish names and dates of birth of living people where this data comes from a legally permitted, publicly available source.
  6. impersonate another person;
  7. mine, collect or use any information from this website with the intent to harm, discredit, harass or prejudice any other person; or
  8. disrupt the flow of information or other data to and from the website or do anything which impacts the service or performance of the website.

Culture24 is the cultural data provider for the First World War Centenary Programme events calendar. Please note, if you are already a Centenary partner and have a Culture24 / IWM log in, you should use the Culture24 system instead: we will then automatically use your event. For all others, please use the form: we reserve the right not to publish events and will let you know why if we don’t.
