This microsite (the “Site”) invites you to ask Ovie anything you like by leaving a recorded voice message (a “Voicenote”). Although we can’t promise that your question will be answered on Ovie’s podcast, we will endeavour to listen to all of them and give each question proper consideration.

In order to manage everyone’s time and ensure that the Site fulfils its purpose, here are a few simple rules which will apply to the content of any Voicenote you choose to record via the Site (a “User Contribution”):

  • These terms and conditions (“Terms”) will become binding on you from the moment when your Voicenote is recorded via the Site. If you do not agree with the Terms, please do not use the Site.
  • By recording a Voicenote, you grant to us an unrestricted, unlimited and irrevocable right (but not the obligation) to host, use, reproduce, publish, broadcast, display, store, cache, publicly perform, translate, edit, adapt, redact, excerpt and distribute your User Contribution in any and all media formats and channels, subject to the User Contribution being selected for publication in relation to the Ask Ovie podcast (the “Podcast”). User Contributions not selected for publication will be subject to our deletion policy below. 
  • User Contributions may be spoken, quoted or played back on the Podcast and will also be listened to by our staff and other third parties involved with the Podcast. As such, any User Contribution uploaded to the Site should be considered non-confidential and, by posting a Voicenote, you agree that we may make use of your User Contribution in any manner connected with the Podcast as we see fit.
  • In order to preserve anonymity and the security of your personal information, we ask that only first names (or pseudonyms) should be used when recording a Voicenote. We reserve the right to use the names used in each Voicenote and, if provided, city or regional locations of the individual(s) concerned.
  • User Contributions should not include information capable of identifying an individual referred to in a Voicenote in any circumstances (for example, references to ‘my boyfriend’ would be acceptable but not ‘my boyfriend Dave’). This is to avoid Ovie, Amazon or others involved in the Podcast being exposed to claims involving defamation or infringement of an individual’s privacy or data protection rights. We reserve the right to edit or immediately delete any User Contribution where this rule is not adhered to.
  • Users under 18 years of age are strictly prohibited from posting Voicenotes.
  • Voicenotes must be limited to 30 seconds in length. We will not consider User Contributions which span two or more Voicenotes left in succession.
  • We undertake to delete all Voicenotes which are not used in the Podcast within sixty (60) days following the decision not to use them.
  • In making a User Contribution you warrant the following:
    • Your User Contribution does not violate the rights of any other person (including without limitation copyright or moral rights, or where the User Contribution amounts to breach a confidence);
    • Your User Contribution is not false, inaccurate or misleading;
    • Your User Contribution is not obscene, lewd, lascivious, violent, harassing, libellous, slanderous, or otherwise objectionable (as determined by us);
    • Your User Contribution is not designed to ridicule, disparage, intimidate, harass, threaten, abuse or discriminate against anyone;
    • Your User Contribution should not refer to any company or business, or be designed to promote any product or service;
    • Your User Contribution does not violate any applicable law, regulation, or rule, or amount to a contempt of court.
  • You agree to hold Ovie, Amazon and us free and harmless from any liability that arises in relation to your breach of any of the warranties above.
  • You are not entitled to payment or any other form of compensation for your User Contribution.
