Terms of Use

Last updated: March 7th 2018

Please read this Terms of Use carefully before you start to use services provided by EMULSIVE on this website and elsewhere on the web (known as “EMULSIVE” from here on in).

First, let’s get the super important and scarily-written ALL CAPS text out of the way:

 


BY ACCESSING, BROWSING OR USING EMULSIVE (WHICH INCLUDES THE INFORMATION YOU SUBMIT AS SEARCHES, COMMENTS, ARTICLES FOR SUBMISSION, ETC.), YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE, INCLUDING THE PRIVACY POLICY AND COMMUNITY GUIDELINES. YOU ALSO AGREE TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS.


 

It should be noted that these terms, when combined with the act of using EMULSIVE, have the same legal force and effect as a written contract with your written signature. You agree that you shall not challenge the validity, enforceability, or admissibility of this Terms of Use on the grounds that it was electronically transmitted or authorized (thank you).

It should also be noted that EMULSIVE is typically a family-friendly space but the content and services offered and available should be considered apt for an audience over the age of 13. There may be a few rude words and adult concepts/imagery here.

 

 

Purpose

The articles, guides, photography and other content shared on EMULSIVE is intended solely for personal, non-commercial use by the users of EMULSIVE and may not be used except as permitted in this Terms of Use, or thought direct expressed consent.

The information presented on EMULSIVE is made available solely for general information purposes and you should be aware that this information is not necessarily complete or up-to-date (back-breaking efforts are made to ensure it is but success isn’t always guaranteed).

With this in mind, please be aware that any of the information on the EMULSIVE may be out of date and EMULSIVE is under no obligation to update it.

 

 

Sharing content

You may freely share content from EMULSIVE through the use of the social media links provided on EMULSIVE, via email, or elsewhere. The more the merrier, in fact.

You may download or copy EMULSIVE content and other downloadable materials displayed on EMULSIVE for your personal use only.

When you download or copy content, no rights, titles or interests are transferred to you. That would be silly.

Also, except as noted above, you may not:

…reproduce, republish, publish, upload, post, transmit, physically, electronically, biologically or psychic-ly distribute, publicly display, modify, create-derivative-works-from, sell or participate in any sale of, or exploit in any way, in whole or in part…any of the content, additional services, or any related files without the prior written consent of EMULSIVE (for first-party content), or the copyright owner (for third-party content). Phew.

Being completely frank, nothing contained here or in the services offered by EMULSIVE grants or should be considered as granting any license or right to use (implied or otherwise), any trademarks, trade names, service marks, trade dress, copyrighted or other proprietary material displayed on EMULSIVE without the prior written consent of the owner of the content as described below!

Essentially, all rights not expressly granted here to you are reserved by EMULSIVE and/or creators of third-party content which appears on EMULSIVE. All trade names, product names, logos, etc., shown on EMULSIVE are the trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective owners.

Speaking of rights…

 

 

Ownership of content

Content provided EMULSIVE (text, illustrations, images, videos, information obtained from vendors, etc.), is for informational purposes and should be used at your own risk. EMULSIVE cannot take any responsibility for damages caused by using development times, alternative development practices and the like.

Unless otherwise noted, all content provided on EMULSIVE is owned, controlled, licensed, appropriately credited and linked, or used with permission. The creative work provided on EMULSIVE encompasses “first-party” and “third-party” content as follows:

 

First-party
This relates to content created by EMULSIVE: the EMULSIVE logo (logo mark and logotype), website theme, illustrations, photography and written content.

 

Third-party
Reader-submitted content such as articles, photography and illustrations.

 

Both first and third-party content is protected by copyright, trademark, trade dress and other such laws with worldwide right, title and interest. Overall ownership / protection of this content falls to the creator, with some exceptions.

For example:

  1. An article or image(s) created by EMULSIVE (first-party content), is deemed to be the property of EMULSIVE.
  2. An article or image(s) created by a contributing author (third-party content), is deemed to be the property of that author and used with permission.

If the works described above contain content from an external source (such as informational or promotional material provided by a vendor), that content remains the property of said owner (the vendor).

EMULSIVE makes every attempt to ensure that images and other content used in both first- and third-party content that is not owned by the creator is appropriately credited and linked back to the source.

In short: if you made it, the copyright belongs to you.
