These terms are intended to be easy to understand and fair to both us and you. For the most part, you won’t find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We want what’s best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future, and believe that clear communication and plain language is the best way to achieve it. Although the language is relatively simple, the intentions are serious and this should be taken as a legal document.
Behave in a legal and civil manner
You may not use the site to post or transmit illegal content, to advertise, to spread chain letters, or to spam. Please keep all content that you share PG13. Also, and we think that this should go without saying: Be nice.
Seriously, be nice
You may not harass other users, sexually or otherwise. Disagreements must be conducted in a civil fashion. Flame wars and non-constructive feedback will be deleted.
We’ll do our best to keep an eye out for bad behavior, but we can’t be everywhere at once.
Remember that this is a community, and the majority of the content comes straight from other users, not from PIXELovely. If you see anything mean or nasty on the site, or anyone sends you anything that makes you uncomfortable, asks for your password or personal information (such as your name, address or phone number), please let us know immediately. However, making false reports is also a serious offense, and could get you frozen.
You are a guest
Remember, this website is a community. We reserve the right to prohibit the use of the site to any user at any time. Be a good guest.
You may not impersonate PIXELovely representatives or employees or pretend to be a member of the staff.
You may not log on another user’s account, nor may you attempt to gain the account information of other players or distribute their passwords to other players. Even if you are given the password or learn of it by any given means, you may still not log into an account that is not yours.
One account per person, please.
If you use the site, you certify that it is legal for you to do so
Even though we think that art should be available to everyone all the time and that there’s nothing wrong with the human body, it’s not up to us. Different states and countries have different laws regarding age restrictions on viewing nudity, even in the context of art. If you are using the site, you are certifying to us that it is legal for you to do so in the state or country where you are doing it. Scout’s honor, please!
If you register for the site, you must be over 13 years of age
Federal law prohibits us from collecting any information about people under 13 years of age, including their email addresses. As a valid email address is required for registering an account on the site, this means you must be 13 or older to join the forums.
Your creative stuff
Drawing and other artworks that you have created or own and choose to share on this site will remain yours. You retain all rights and responsibilities pertaining to your visual art. However, by posting your artwork here you grant us permission to include images of it in promotional or tutorial materials. For an example of how this might apply, if we need to take a screenshot of the forums to explain how they work, your name, icon and any images or words you have posted may appear in that screenshot.
From time to time we may ask permission of certain users to specifically showcase their artwork onsite or in other formats. For example, in “Fellow Students” posts.
In addition, if you say something about us or how you use the service in an email to us, on our message boards, in a news comment or in any other communication with us and it catches our eye, we might want to use it on the site or elsewhere when talking about the site. If you’re under age 18, remember to ALWAYS check with your parents before you send anything to us or post anything on the site! By sending in your content and comments, you (and your parents) are agreeing that it’s okay to repeat on the site and elsewhere what you say, and it’s even all right for us to use it in an ad. So, this means we can use it in any way we want, anywhere, until the end of time. In summary: If you’re talking about us, yes, we can quote you on that!
You also agree that ideas and techniques are not unique, and that we may occasionally publish, on site or off, content that is similar to an idea that you had. You may not tell people the idea is stolen or attempt to take legal action against us. For example, if you share correct posture for drawing on the forums, and some time later we also publish an article about correct posture, there will be no issue of copyright between us.
When submitting an article, you are agreeing to let us publish it on and off site, now and forever. You also agree that some of the ideas in the article may be restated in other locations and other ways without necessarily being based on the article that you wrote, as per the above clause. Some things bear or require repeating by many voices. You also agree that we may rewrite or edit the article in full or in part.
Other people’s creative stuff

Please do not post copyright works to which you do not have a right or explicit permissions to use. If we are made aware of your use of copyrighted content, we will have to take it down and possibly suspend your account if you persist in posting content that does not belong to you.
