Special Terms

Nothing on my site may be used with ANYTHING from Cuties Expressions. http://www.cutiesexpressions.com

Top

General Terms
All outlines were created by me, tubes were coloured by me and anything else found in the members area was created by myself! Any resemblance to another’s work is purely coincidental.
Please do not hot link, if I find any graphics are being hot linked they will be replaced by some that are not so nice, and the member doing so will be removed from the members area until the problem is fixed!
Members do NOT need a web site to join!
Those with members areas, I will not need access to your site unless I suspect TOU misuse! I think this is utterly ridiculous, I hope I will never have to ask anyone for this information!
All transactions are final, no discounts!
Credit must be given, a memberships or credit page is fine!
These are all general terms, please be sure to also read any additional terms on the individual pages.

Top

Badges
Once you have become a member you will be sent a badge, you will have a week to get your badge on your site before your account will be deactivated. If you do not receive a badge chances are I am having email issues so please do let me know so I can resend!

Top

Usernames and Passwords
You will be given your own personal username and password, please keep this unique I suggest having a different username and password for each site, make sure to write it down and keep it safe I do NOT save passwords. This is not to be given to anyone else!
Should you share your password with anyone else you will be BANNED from The Pixel Alley and you will NOT be able to return.

Sharing
Everything in my site is for your personal use! Unless you own a tube license you MAY NOT tube my lines for profit! Sig tags, adoptions etc are all for your own personal use! IF you would like to gift to a friend PLEASE ask me first, I don’t mind a tag or two but if they want a lot they can join the site.
Exceptions include friend and couple sig tags, you and your friend or spouse’s name may be added to that tag and it may be gifted to your friend!
NOTHING may be shared from my site through yahoo/google/MSN or any other kind of group! UNLESS I have given my expressed permission! Sig tags, adoptions, tube sets etc that YOU create may be shared but nothing in it’s pure form!

Top

Mailing List
The Pixel Alley DOES have a mailing list as well as an ad’s group, the mailing list is mandatory and you can join it on the main page of the member area. The mailing list IS mandatory, those who do not join will have their membership suspended. The ad group is not mandatory, however you may join to promote your own site! I am pretty lenient, so there is chatter in the group!

Top

Licenses
I do offer a tube license, these are for the lifetime of this site. Whether your membership runs out your tube license will not! Those who are banned from my site and NOT allowed to use my work in any way whether they have a license or not!
If your membership has expired you must keep my badge and license on your site should you still be using my work, whether it is an old update or new creation.

Top

Termination
If you are terminated from my site, that is not suspended but banned you will ALWAYS be banned, there will be no chance of you returning to my site, whether you have won a membership or wish to purchase one!

Top

Lineart
You may tube my lineart but you may not may a profit from my lineart without a tube license.
You may purchase a license, this will not expire. I do offer AS IS this will be found in my shoppe, if you are interested in AS IS line art there are separate terms for those!
You may make MINOR changes to my lineart, when needed to for animation, making avatars with doll bases etc … but this does not change copyright, I must still be credited for the original lineart. Please NO resizing if you want something smaller or larger please ask!
You may NOT add any of my altered lineart to your web site or member area. You may create sig tags, adoptions, web sets etc with my lineart, this does not require a license. Those misusing my lineart may be removed from my site.

Top

Tubes
Tubes can be used to create sig tags, adoptions, web sets etc, you do not need a license to do so. Tubes may not be re-coloured unless otherwise noted on the individual tube page. In most cases eye colours can be changed, but that does not mean credit is now yours, it was still created by me and must be credited as such.
Please add something besides just text before calling a tube “finished”.

Top

Tutorials
What you create from the tutorials is yours to do with as you please, including tube for profit. HOWEVER your end result must be AT LEAST 50% different than the original, which could include colours used, shading etc depending on the tutorial. Most of my tutorials are not pixel by pixel and allow for inspiration rather than simply copying!
Tutorials CAN NOT be created with my line art, I do offer a license for this from time to time, if you are interested please do let me know.

Top

Dolls
I am very proud of my dolls, and they are all very special to me! Most are named after special friends so please do not change their name or how they look, that includes faces. Sometimes a blank option may be given but if it is not all aspects must remain in tact. You may change a pixel or two for animation purposes. All bases must be dressed before they can be placed in your member area. Underwear and bra is fine! Eye colour can be re-coloured unless otherwise stated.

Top

Other Graphics: Banners, Emoticons, Quilt Squares, Plugs
These graphics can be used on a business or personal site BUT may not be sold as they are! Credit must be given, a credit page is fine. You may add text to banners, plugs, quilt squares etc. These can NOT be added to your members area.

Top

Adoptions
These are for your personal use only, they can not be given to others. If there is a banner provided it must be linked to my site, if not you may link the actual adoption.

Top

Sig Tags
I do NOT take sig tag requests. However, if you are unable to put your own name on the tag please do send the ones you would like to me (no more than 5 at once) and I will add your name for you. Credit must be given, a small text link below the sig tag is fine. These are for your own personal use not for friends. If a friend wishes to have one please ask me, in most cases it is fine but I still prefer if you ask!

Top

Ad Spaces
I do offer ad space on my site, if you wish to add your banner please read the advertising page. I am not responsible for anything found on the sites, nor do I endorse the sites. If a site is found to have content that goes against my TOU they will be removed from the ad space. No refund will be given.

Top

Co-Owners/Multiple Sites
Should your site be co-owned, it is not mandatory that all owners join my site. However, you can not share my outlines or anything in my member area with your co-owner under any circumstances.
Should you have more than one site, you do not need to purchase a separate license for each site.

Top

Auctions
Anything you create can be used in online auctions. However, credit must still be given to my site in your listing. There are no auctions that I do not allow, however I am partial to S&S Auctions (www.ssauctions.net) a shameless plug I know but I couldn’t help it! A link in the auction listing is fine.

Top

Freebies
Any freebies I offer at my site must still be credited to me and can not be used for profit unless you have a tube license (in the case of line art) or are a member of my site.

Top

Trades
I will NO LONGER be trading UNLESS the site is on my wish list. I have been used so many times with trades I tell ya it’s just not funny! IF the person I trade with does not live up to their end of the bargain then I reserve the right to terminate. I also reserve the right to terminate if I simply choose to no longer trade!

Top

Purchaseware
All individual purchaseware terms must be abided by. Credit must be given to my site, a badge will be provided and must be linked back. Members receive a 10% discount on everything in my shoppe, besides custom work and the AS IS lifetime licenses. I reserve the right to tube any custom dolls, AS IS and lineart from the shoppe to put into my members area.

Top

Theme Weeks
Most theme weeks will be limited. I hold the right to sell any extra tube packs that are left over from a previous theme week.

Top

Donations
I give donations at my own discretion, if I wish to give them I will. If I don’t, I wont. Please don’t email me asking.

Top

My Rights
I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
I reserve the right to refuse to sell anything to anyone.
I reserve the right to refuse membership to anyone.
These apply to those who win or wish to purchase.
IF you have violated other artist’s TOU, once or repeatedly and I KNOW or FIND OUT about it you will be removed, if you don’t follow TOU’s don’t bother applying! Sorry this sounds harsh, but I need to protect my artwork and my members!
