To make the colorhood.com website ("colorhood") available to you, we require you to agree to and abide by the requirements set out below ("Terms"). If you don't agree to these Terms, then you can't use colorhood and we will be sad.
You must be 18 years old or older to use colorhood or have a legal guardian agree that you can use colorhood.
We also allow businesses to use colorhood and make purchases. If you are using colorhood on behalf of a business, then you must have authority, and your use of colorhood is a warranty that you have the authority, to bind that business to these Terms.
Be smart! You will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your username and password when that functionality becomes available. We therefore recommend that you keep your password secure and don't allow others to use your username. The only way that we have to verify your identity is through your username and password, so keep them to yourself.
Be nice! We are trying to create a community at colorhood, so won't tolerate users that threaten, impersonate, abuse or harass other colorhood users or act in any way that we think is outside of these Terms or the spirit of colorhood.
Because the internet is available pretty much everywhere, we can't possibly keep up with all legal requirements that may apply to use of colorhood. We therefore put the onus on you to ensure that your use of colorhood complies with all laws, rules and regulations that are applicable to you. These Terms are void and use of colorhood is revoked where use is prohibited.
We have to reserve the right to change these Terms. We'll do our best to let you know when we change them but you should review them periodically to make sure that you understand the agreement between you and us. If you continue to use colorhood after we post new Terms, then you acknowledge that you agree to those new Terms.
We have other policies, guidelines, FAQs and requirements that we post elsewhere on colorhood from time to time. We expect that you will, and you agree to, abide by any other requirements posted on colorhood. All of those policies, guidelines, FAQs and other requirements are incorporated into these Terms.
If you don't like something posted on colorhood, you may navigate away from that page. We can't be responsible for the impact anything posted on colorhood may have on you.
Do's and Don't's
When using colorhood...
Re-post images from colorhood on other websites! (That's right this is a Do, not a Don't.) We support this practice and think that it benefits our artists. As long as you include a link back to colorhood and the page on which that image or content appears (and otherwise comply with these Terms, duh) we're fine with your re-posting of content, thumbnails, links to colorhood, etc., in your blogs, social-network postings, listings, etc.
Be authentic. All the registration information that you submit to us, and all other information posted or submitted to colorhood must be accurate, truthful and up-to-date. We rely on this information, so please let us know if any of your information changes.
Be responsible. You are solely responsible for your conduct on colorhood, including for any data, text, information, usernames, graphics, profiles, audio and video ("Content") that you post, submit or display on colorhood.
Be careful. If you use any community features of colorhood, such as commenting or social networking, be aware that any personal information (your name, phone number, address, email address) that you elect to share will be shown to other users of colorhood. So don't post it unless you want the public to see it.
Infringe our artists' rights. This is their livelihood! If you reproduce or sell images of their artwork, or post their artwork to other sites without a link back to colorhood, you'll be infringing their copyright and other rights to their art, which is illegal. As mentioned above, we do give you the limited right to repost images from colorhood.
Infringe other people's rights, either. Don't infringe upon any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary or intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy.
Abuse our site. You may not use colorhood for hosting graphic elements of web page designs, icons, smilies, buddy icons, forum avatars, badges and other non-photographic elements on external websites. Nor may you modify, adapt, disassemble or otherwise change or interfere with the use of colorhood. You know what else? You're not allowed to interfere with or disrupt colorhood or violate the security, servers or networks of colorhood.
Lie, cheat or steal. Don't do anything on colorhood that is fraudulent or involves the sale of illegal, counterfeit, stolen items. This includes artists misrepresenting work as their own and buyers attempting to reproduce an artist's artwork.
Lie, cheat or steal, The Sequel. Don't threaten, impersonate, abuse, defame, libel, or harass other colorhood users or act in any way that we think is outside of these Terms or the spirit of colorhood.
Lie, cheat or steal, 3-D. Don't post, submit or display anything that is false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening, unlawfully harassing, obscene, profane, vulgar, offensive, or otherwise not appropriate, as determined by us.
Break the law. Don't violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising).
Front. Do not impersonate any other user or person or entity.
Hack. Don't even think about uploading, posting or displaying any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, easter eggs or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information.
Ruin it for the rest of us. Don't create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers.
Spam us (or anyone else!). Create or submit through or otherwise use colorhood to engage in any unwanted email solicitations, spam, or other business that is unrelated to colorhood.
Spread rumors. Link to colorhood in a manner that would create an association between colorhood and another site, or indicate that colorhood approves, endorses or is otherwise related to another site.
Our artists retain the copyright to their artwork at all times. Simply buying a piece of art does not transfer any of the copyright or other rights to the you. You therefore may not reproduce images of artwork purchased on colorhood without the artist's prior written consent.
Artists cannot post their materials directly to colorhood. If you want to submit work to colorhood for consideration, please follow ourArtist Submission Guidelines.
If you are an artist, photographer or other copyright owner, and you think that something on colorhood violates your rights, please refer to our Copyright Infringement Policy.

Disclaimer of warranties. WE PROVIDE colorhood "AS IS, AS AVAILABLE", AND YOUR ACCESS OF colorhood IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT colorhood OR OUR SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR RESULT IN ANY PARTICULAR OUTCOME, OR THAT THE OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. OUR SERVICES AND colorhood ARE "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND (EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY). TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Romania law. The Romanian House of Commerce law governs these Terms regardless of conflict-of-law principles.
Disputes with us. Our goal is to make you happy. In the event a dispute arises between you and us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work quickly toward a solution. If we can't come to a mutual resolution and need to get a neutral third party involved, rather than having to go to court, we require that any dispute related to these Terms or your use of colorhood be submitted to arbitration by a single arbitrator in Romania, under the The Court of International Commercial Arbitration attached to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania in effect at that time. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and judgment on the award shall be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction.
Disputes with others. If you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release us, colorhood (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
Keep in touch. You may contact us using the various methods listed on our Contact page. If we need to contact you, we will use the contact information that you provided to us as part of the registration process. Easy, tiger. You and colorhood are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
Assignments, etc. You may not assign, transfer, delegate or sub-license any of your rights under these Terms. We may assign, transfer, delegate or sublicense any of our rights under these Terms. If you don't like whom we transfer our responsibilities to, then you should stop using colorhood.
Severability. If any provision of these Terms is illegal, void or unenforceable, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary for the rest of the agreement to remain enforceable.
No waiver. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms. Just because we might waive compliance once, does not mean we will do so again. For any waiver of compliance with these Terms to be binding on us, one of our authorized representatives must provide you with written notice of that waiver.
Entire agreement almost. These Terms and any policies, guidelines, FAQs and requirements that we post on colorhood state the complete understanding between you and us. No modification of these Terms will be enforced against us unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative.
The headings don't count. The section and paragraph headings in these Terms are for your reading pleasure only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms.
