We may expressly authorize you to redistribute certain Content on a personal, non-commercial basis. We will identify the Content that you are authorized to redistribute and describe ways you may redistribute it (such as via email, blogs, etc). We may revoke this authorization at any time.

Please note that if you delete a User Submission from the Services:
The User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available.
