By default, stories uploaded to the DEAL Community Platform remain under the ownership of the original author(s). Being more personal in nature than tools, this helps to ensure that everyone feels comfortable sharing their stories publicly.
However, when uploading your story you may optionally choose to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International Licence so that it can be used more widely, just like a tool.
If this licence is specified, it applies to the story’s name, description, main body, and any embedded images, unless otherwise noted. It does not apply to external content such as websites or embedded videos, unless these are explicitly specified.
If a story has not been released under this Creative Commons licence, you should seek permission from the author(s) before using it outside the DEAL Community Platform.
