The Organisers do not assume any responsibility for disputes between persons claiming copyrights of content. By registering and uploading content, each contestant declares that the content does not infringe any third-party rights and that they have obtained all necessary rights and licenses from third parties for the use of any materials. Participants may not use any music that is not in the public domain or for which they have not acquired the necessary rights and licenses. The Participants will be fully responsible to the Organisers for any breach of the conditions contained in this disclaimer and, in particular, will hold the Organisers harmless from any actions brought by third parties.

By registering and uploading content, the Participants agree that the Organisers shall have the right to make the content freely available for educational purposes on the web, CD-ROM or in any other media format for a period of three years starting from the date of the close of entries for the Youth Manifesto resource competition.

By registering and uploading content the Participants declare that all identifiable individuals in their entry consented: to the use of their image and performance, the submission of the content in this award, and the use of the content by the Organisers for educational and promotional purposes in all media formats, including the web, for a period of three years from the date of the close of entries for the Youth Manifesto resource competition.

Participation in The Youth Manifesto 

Any complaints concerning the evaluation and decisions made by the European jury and youth panel members must be made to the national organisers. Complaints concerning the European Manifesto must be made to the European Commission via EUN Partnership aisbl which will pass them on to the Commission. The European Commission does not take any responsibility for disputes at the national level.

It is pre-supposed that content submitted to the European level of the Manifesto complies with national legislation in the country where it was uploaded. It is therefore up to each individual participant to ensure that his/her content does not infringe national law.
