Easy, but not simple.
You always own every bit of everything you post here and can do whatever you want with any of it.
So can ATS.
Now in the case of a work you think you might want to eventually publish elsewhere, you might be tying yourself in a knot. ATS will have no problem
whatsoever with your pursuing other opportunity, and you'll always be free to do whatever you want with your own material, as far as ATS is
Where this could be problematic is with a potential publisher. They usually aren't thrilled with the idea of taking on anything for publication that
has been previously published or posted elsewhere. So that's the warning - what some other entity has issue with, we have literally (pun intended) no
For your own protection, I'd advise not posting anything here you might want to consider eventually publishing elsewhere. Not because ATS would care,
but because a potential publisher might, since by virtue of posting it here, you no longer have exclusive
rights to it. Publishers typically
don't like that sort of loose end.

And of course while I was composing that mini screed, others filled in and answered the question. So anyway, good luck.
