Indiana newspapers agreeing to the freelancer’s payment terms will have the capability to download the materials from the network’s Web site for unlimited use in those newspapers’ publications and Web sites.
HSPA Information Network has no obligation to review the freelancer content or to verify its accuracy or completeness.
HSPA Information Network may refuse, at its sole discretion, to include any freelancer submission as a posting on the Web site.
