4.2 Licenses to Your Content in Order to Operate the Services and Software. Solely for the purposes of operating or improving the Services and Software, when you upload Content to the Services or Software, you grant us a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferrable license to use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify (so as to better showcase your Content, for example), publicly perform, and translate the Content. 

 

Why do they need license to reproduce, publicly display, etc. MY Content in order to operate services and software? Does this mean what it sounds like it means?

 

Can this be superceded by privacy settings?

Hello, 

Sorry for the delay in responding to your query. Thanks for reaching out to Adobe.

The operative statement in section 4.2 is, “Solely for the purposes of operating or improving the Services and Software." Adobe requires a license from you to publicly display your Content on your behalf while using our Services and Software. We reproduce your Content when you take an action to show the Content.

For example, let’s say you use Scan App and create a PDF. Then you want to use a different app such as Adobe Reader to display the PDF. In this example, Adobe is reproducing and displaying your Content in Reader.”

 

Regards,
Tariq
