The SP website consists of "objects" (eg Mountains, Albums, Articles, Lists) contributed by members. Each "object" in SP has at least one"maintainer" - a person authorized to make edits to the object. You become the initial maintainer of objects you contribute. As a maintainer, you are expected to ensure that the information provided for your object is useful, complete, accurate, and up-to-date.
You acknowledge that objects you contribute may be deleted or transferred to another maintainer in accordance with SP policies. You agree that in the event of a transfer, the new maintainer may modify the material that you have contributed.
When you make contributions to an existing object, you are authorizing that object's maintainer (and future maintainers) to incorporate, modify,or reject your contribution as he or she sees fit.
You retain your copyright in your contributions, subject only to the editorial controls described here.
