Membership Terms/Terms of Use
– disbme Member’s Area –

General

All graphics are ©disbme.com [ Certificates #: 0029591 – http://www.copyrightdeposit.com/rep9/0029591.htm ] All rights reserved. Please only link to my main domain – disbme at http://disbme.com .  We do not own copyright to graphics we have “tubed or shaded” from our memberships.

– We do not HAVE to sell ANYTHING to anyone we choose not to, if you have been proven to have stolen graphics, or abused copyright or another site’s terms of use we will not sell you a membership, please do not ask.  Current members found to be stealing graphics or abusing copyright from use, or anyone else will also be banned from disbme.  If you do it to others there is nothing keeping you from doing it to us too… plus it’s just wrong!  It is not hard to give credit for the graphics, and saves you a headache or two in the long run.

– Updated 11-30-08 – You must now have a website to join disbme and affiliate sites, OR be referred by an known and respected member of our pixel community.  You do not have to have a website to join. If you have a website you must give me the URL. If you state in your terms of use that anyone with a members area has to give you access to their member area so you can make sure they are following your terms of use, then I too require that you provide me with access to your members area. I will never use anything in your members area without first purchasing a membership from you. If you have a website, you MUST display our website logo *OR a text link, on your site within 7 days of joining. I will check our members sites periodically to make sure that our logo is displayed there. If your membership expires and you continue to use anything from our website you MUST continue to display our logo on your site.

– Once you receive your username and password there will be NO refunds for ANY reason. Please make sure that you want your membership BEFORE purchasing.  You are not allowed to share your username or password with anyone. I do track IP’s, and if you are caught doing so I will immediately revoke your membership and all rights to use our graphics WITHOUT refund. Please recommend our site to your friends instead.  This includes letting them use your login information to “check out” our website before joining.  This is NOT allowed, and will result in your membership being suspended and you and your friend being banned from our websites.

-You must ALWAYS give credit to disbme for anything that you use. A text link at the bottom of the page is fine, You MUST display our logo or a text link on EACH page that one of our creations is on… not just a “general” some tubes by disbme on one page. If you choose to use our graphics you need to display the logo and link it to www.disbme.com For every pack you purchase from our shops… those logos need to also be displayed.  Just using your disbme licenses/logos is not permitted.  We provide the logos/licenses for a reason, please use them.  You must NEVER claim copyright to ANY of the creations from disbme. The original copyright will ALWAYS remain with disbme and/or the original creator. You may claim your creation, but NOT the copyright. I do offer tubes to our members that I have made from our memberships to other sites. It is against their terms of use for anyone to claim copyright to their creations, and the same applies to disbme creations. Please always give credit where credit is due.

-NOTHING on this site is to be shared EVER. You are more than welcome to make tags etc. for sharing, but you are never to share anything as it is.  Our graphics may not be used on sites that do not allow you to post credits to the original artist.

-If you have ANY questions what so ever that I may not have covered here PLEASE email me BEFORE you use the graphic in question. It will help solve any potential misunderstandings before they happen.

-There is to be NO hot linking to anything on our site. If you are caught doing so your membership WILL be revoked, with NO refund.

It really shouldn’t have to be stated, But… Anyone that treats our members, websites, graphics, or us with disrespect will be banned from our site(s).  There is no reason to treat anyone with disrespect, and if you expect to be treated fairly and kindly than you should realize the rest of us do as well.  One of our promises to you is that we will treat you with respect and courtesy and will listen to anything you have to say so long as it’s done politely and without drama.  Drama & disrespect will not be tolerated what-so-ever and anyone causing either will be banned from our sites without a refund of any kind.  Treat us and our things like you expect others to treat you and your things and there will be no issues.  Our groups… member updates/chats/advertising – already have these terms but due to recent issues with a past member we’ve felt the need to add them here as well.  We do realize this issue will not come up with 99.9% of our members, but there is sometimes one who just doesn’t feel the need to treat others with decency, for that 1% this term is especially created for you.  Thank you to all of our members who’ve always treated us kindly, if it weren’t for you we wouldn’t be here.

A reminder… You may NOT make any of our graphics into clipart, or any other digital art form except for purposes intended and written into our terms of use. We do not offer any re-sellers license, And we’ve discontinued our Commercial offline use license (except for special promotions).  We also do not allow pre-shading (grayscale) to be offered from our lines.  There is no Re-coloring allowed for your members/customers.  When our outlines are colored for this purpose it is too much like you are giving a tube license for our outlines and that we do NOT allow.  A lot of site owners terms are the same, and permission should be asked unless it’s stated that it’s okay.  We sell licenses to our members/customers only, and never give your members rights to our graphics unless they are purchased “asis” by you for your password protected member area, and that is only from our shops, and Jessie’s own site – Mama Pixels.  Even if the graphics are purchased “asis” our terms of use MUST be followed as well as your’s.  They are posted in our shops for your member’s/customers convenience. If there is something you create that is NOT listed as okay to use our graphics for in our terms of use then you may NOT use our graphics to create these things.  Special permission may be granted on a case by case basis, if we do not mind everyone using our graphics for this “new” purpose we will add the new project in our terms of use granting everyone permission.  In short if it doesn’t say you can then you CAN’T.  Please do not assume it’s okay because it’s not listed. We are sorry to have to post this for everyone when only a handful of people abuse the terms of use.  We feel sometimes a reminder is needed, and that is all this is. If you have any questions please just ask.

Tubes

– NONE of our tubes are to be shared with ANYONE. You MUST make a tag, web set, adoption, premade, wallpaper, stationary, etc. out of them before displaying them anywhere. You MUST add more than just text to the tubes… even just grass, or a little scene etc. is fine. Just not only one tube and your name please. I’ll work with anyone, so please feel free to email me anytime to ask if your uncertain. It’s better to ask than violate our terms of use. You MAY sell your creations from our tubes if you wish, but you may NOT sell our tubes, or add them to any collection, anywhere.

Updated 09-30-08 – DO NOT zoom in on our tubes and copy our shading!!! That is no different than copying someone else’s lineart. DO NOT copy ANY PART of our outlines. It is getting tiring looking at other peoples stuff and seeing our stuff in it, and we get emails about it a lot lately. BE ORIGINAL!!!! DO NOT copy our color pallets what good is it to have every ones stuff look the same. DO NOT copy our tags, or our logos do not take our parts off anything and put them on another. If this keeps happening we will close disbme. Its not fun when you always have copy cats on your tail. There are tutorials in our membership area that help you learn to draw and shade use them if you can’t do it yet. If you need more help we are never bothered by questions. We can not guarantee we can help but we can guarantee to TRY to help you out.
THANKS so much to those of you that follow our terms and are original in your own creating.

– You may not alter our graphics in anyway. If you want something re-colored etc. Please email us and we will do what we can to help you get what your needing. * You may change the hair color, eye color, or skin tones on any of our tubes that are marked clearly as being okay to alter colors.

Outlines

– You must ALWAYS color and decorate our outlines before you can use them for anything. I do not give ANYONE rights to use our outlines as is in their members area, or anywhere else. We do sell “AsIs” outlines and tubes from time to time in our shops if you are interested please stop by there.

– You may NOT resize our outlines ever, for any reason. If you really want something larger/smaller than please email me, if I have time, and I am able I will do it for you. This is not something I do everyday so please do not expect me to do it often. -You may NOT remove parts of our outlines to use with other outlines… not even our own outlines. Please use them as they are, or draw your own add ons… do NOT tear apart mine to make something else from them. You may remove a few pixels if you need to make something fit right, but if your changing a LOT of pixels, then I’d like to look at it before you use it.  Usually if your using an outline though you like it how it is so it’s not generally a problem, I just want to make things as clear as I can. * You may alter the outlines for animation purposes, if it’s extensive alterations I’d prefer to see the changes before you use it… I’m not trying to be unreasonable… just protecting our work.

– Outlines and your results from our tutorials may be TUBED to use in your members area or sell in your shop only with a tube license. You may NOT offer the outlines, you can offer the tubes you make from them. A complete record of commercial tube license holders will be displayed on our site. There is a one time fee for the Commercial Tube License.  We do not offer these licenses at all times.  We offer them on special occasions or promotional purposes.  You are welcome to e-mail us if you would like to purchase one to inquire about our next promotion.  Sometimes we do forget to offer them :).

– If you wish to write tutorials using our lineart, you may, but you MUST purchase a tutorial license.  These are sold on a limited basis, and are only available for special promotions.  Current Tutorial license holders are the only ones with permission to write Tutorials with our lineart. You may NOT offer the outlines, but you can write a tutorial using the outlines, using the “count pixel method” etc. You may not offer our outlines in the tutorial themselves. If you need clarification on this please ask. Credit for the original outline MUST always be given to disbme. You MUST display your tutorial license within each tutorial that you write, as well as on a credits page.

AsIs Licenses – Usage – THERE ARE TO BE NO TUBES OR GRAPHICS IN ANY FORMAT SOLD “ASIS” FROM OUR LINEART! If you would like to purchase an “AsIs tube profit license” from us for $100.00 you are more than welcome to tube our original lineart from disbme only to sell in tube packs from a shop with an “AsIs” license. Your customers may only use them for “end use” projects, or to place the sets they purchase from you in their password protected member areas. Line art credit must be given on all packs sold AsIs, a logo stating the tubes are by you, and lines are by us is acceptable as long as it has our url: http://disbme.com on it. Your members must also give us credit for the outlines, “original outlines by http://disbme.com ” is acceptable.  Anyone breaking this term will be banned and all rights to any graphics ©disbme will be revoked. Please have RESPECT for Artists and always ask if it is okay to do “AsIs” graphics from their art. Thanks!

We do NOT allow “Grayscale shading” or “Re-coloring” for your members or customers or “custom coloring” on our outlines, bases etc.  If you want to offer all gray tubes to your member’s for them to use exactly that way that is up to you but they may NOT recolor them. They are to be used for end use items only. We’re sorry that we even have to clarify that here.

We offer outlines and bases for you to color yourself. We do not give out rights for your members or customers to re-color our lines that you have shaded.  No “Custom Coloring” is allowed on our lineart/bases etc.  We do not allow anyone to color the items you purchase the rights to shade for yourself. They are for you, and you alone to use as per our terms of use.

Tutorials

Tutorials are for your own personal use only.  You may not share them with others, or compile them in any manner including, but not limited to e-books, discs, etc.  They may not be sold or placed “asis” on any site for any reason.

Your results from tutorials may be tubed so long as you hold a tube license.  They may be used to create end use projects such as stationary, signatures, websets, adoptables, etc.

WordPress Templates/HTML & CSS Templates

– Personal use only.  You may not share the template as it is, nor may you share the template even if you make changes to it.  It is for you to create your own wordpress themes, for your own site.

– Credits for disbme ( http://disbme.com) must remain intact at all times in the footer of the template, This includes any altered theme(s).  You may change the theme template to suit your needs, but even then credit must remain intact as I have it in the template.

– You may not create other templates from mine for free or for profit to share with others, this includes but is not limited to your member’s or customer’s.  I do not offer a license for templates to be used in this manner.

– You may not create themes for others.  There is no commercial use allowed for my templates, they are for you to design your own WordPress themes for display on your own site(s).  We do not offer a commercial use license for our templates at this time.

– disbme templates may not be used for any sites I would not let my 5 year old son view.  My site url is on each template I make and I do not want to be associated with any sites that contain more than a G rating (General audience).  Many if not all of my membership sites require the same.

If you have any questions please just ask :)

Trades

*- We will only trade memberships with Sites that are listed on our Wish List. If we trade with you and your site closes, you will no longer have access to our Members area… fair is fair. Although we appreciate each and everyone of our trades, if the sites we trade aren’t updated at least once per month we will have to terminate the trade. We work very hard on our sites and try to give our members the best possible service we are able and we would like that in return. I hope no one is offended by this, its in no way meant to offend. Just something we would like everyone to know.  We are no longer doing “trades”.  We apologize for this but have had enough with all of the “trade issues” that can arise.

Special Terms

Nothing in our member’s area, shops, or any other of our sites is to be sold or gifted to Kim of Cuties Expressions – Previously Adorable lil Pixies, and Cottontail Designs. Or April previous owner of April’s Pixels. These two ladies have scammed countless members of the pixel community and are banned from our sites, and from using our graphics.

11/2009 – New update to our terms of use… It really shouldn’t have to be stated, but….

Anyone that treats our members, websites, graphics, or us with disrespect will be banned from our site(s).  There is no reason to treat anyone with disrespect, and if you expect to be treated fairly and kindly than you should realize the rest of us do as well.  One of our promises to you is that we will treat you with respect and courtesy and will listen to anything you have to say so long as it’s done politely and without drama.  Drama & disrespect will not be tolerated what-so-ever and anyone causing either will be banned from our sites without a refund of any kind.  Treat us and our things like you expect others to treat you and your things and there will be no issues.  Our groups… member updates/chats/advertising – already have these terms but due to recent issues with a past member we’ve felt the need to add them here as well.  We do realize this issue will not come up with 99.9% of our members, but there is sometimes one who just doesn’t feel the need to treat others with decency, for that 1% this term is especially created for you.  Thank you to all of our members who’ve always treated us kindly, if it weren’t for you we wouldn’t be here.

These terms of use apply to all of our websites.  This is also stated on each site.  Please ask if you have any questions, never assume something is okay just because it is not clarified here.  We try to address all issues in our terms, but sometimes people come up with some ideas that we just don’t think of… it doesn’t mean it’s permitted if we don’t cover it here.  It means you should ask us so we can decide how we would like to approach the issue.  Your rights, all of the ones we offer, are written here.  We may add to them should situations arise, but if it’s not written here giving you permission then that means you don’t have permission to do it.  I apologize for having to write it out this way, but with some people you have to do so.  Thank you for understanding.  We do reserve the right to change any or all of our terms at any given time. For this reason we ask that you regularly check for changes.

License Descriptions
