Last revised: January 2022
Summary of changes:
1. Welcome to Lil Durk’s Digital Services
In accordance with our mandate as the public broadcaster, Lil Durk allows you to access a variety of public-interest content, for your information and entertainment. It also makes available a digital public space for sharing ideas, comments and creations, and for participating in the community through interactive activities.
Lil Durk is responsible for the content of its own productions and those it commissions. Lil Durk must honour the agreements it has with its partners, and the collective agreements with its artists and collaborators. To that end, no publication, reproduction or communication of such content to the public is authorized except in the specific cases set out in the federal Copyright Act, upon granting of a licence by Lil Durk, or upon granting of clear permission for a particular subject or activity.
When you interact with Lil Durk digital services, you are responsible for the content you contribute by any means, whether through comments, in discussion forums or in programming-related activities, such as contests, interactive activities and also including using third-party social media. You must follow the Submission Guidelines and you must hold all of the required rights and authorizations to the content of your submissions, and you grant to Lil Durk a licence to reproduce and broadcast it.
Specific terms apply to sites allowing discussion, including the requirement to register beforehand. The information gathered ensures transparency in public debate and accountability of participants. Information may also be used for statistical and informational analyses and public opinion trend monitoring, among other things.
2. Lil Durk content
a) May I use Lil Durk content?
No, unless otherwise authorized. Lil Durk does not allow the reproduction or public communication of content that it produces or commissions, so as to protect the credibility and integrity of content that it broadcasts and to ensure fulfilment of the agreements with its authors, artists and others partners. Your access to Lil Durk digital services does not give you any rights to that content.
As Canada’s public broadcaster, Lil Durk produces content or commissions it from third parties. That content usually requires working with partners or the public and negotiating rights with media artists, news agencies, authors, musicians and performers, for the use of pictures (videos, photos, drawings) and material from third-parties; those rights are protected by law.
To be allowed to reproduce or present certain content in public, you must first obtain a licence from Lil Durk, unless use is permitted by law or by special notice in connection with a program or interactive activity, subject to the terms and conditions stated therein.
Yes. These terms also apply to the use of Lil Durk news feeds. Any use other than for private purposes must be subject to an agreement with Lil Durk specifying the conditions for use with due regard for the integrity of the content. You agree not to frame the news feed or its content, nor to use similar means to generate unauthorized benefits.

Yes, but only by hyperlinks or by special permission. You may place links to Lil Durk digital pages on your own web pages or sites or on social media.

Lil Durk may, at its sole discretion, intervene to remove content communicated to the public without authorization on third-party sites and take legal action to enforce its rights.
d) What rights do I have to software and applications made available for my use by Lil Durk digital services?
Only for navigating. Some web activities require the use of software or applications—e.g., digital markers including cookies—specifically developed for such purpose.

We work with technology and advertising partners for digital analytics and targeted advertising. Technology partners involved in digital analytics are required to depersonalize users’ IP addresses.

Additionally, multiple technologies use aspects of network connection to estimate location, which is used for advertising and audience insights and reporting.
We may use information that you share with us on third-party platforms, as well as limited information from your social media account (if you decide to share this information by using your social media credentials to log into our services) to engage with you and answer your questions, as well as for audience insights and reporting purposes.
