Your interest in the products of Paracosm Project means the world for us. We are happy to feel it - also through your artwork, fan-sites and social pages, through other creative pieces based on the intellectual property of Paracosm LTD. Still, in some situations we just have to protect our intellectual property, which is also quite valuable for us as for authors.
The following Policy is concern of Paracosm Fan Content: (1) fan art that includes artwork, photos, videos, and other materials based on the Paracosm Project products, and (2) personal, non-commercial web-sites, social pages, and apps related to the products of Paracosm Project. Direct usage of our games, artwork, videos, music, characters, logos, and other intellectual property is illegal in most cases. Please, read this Policy carefully to have a clear understanding of what is possible to do regarding Paracosm Fan Content. It would be nice of you to check out this Policy before making Paracosm Fan Content.
The team of Paracosm Project has the right to change this Policy. Potential revised versions will be published on the official website. All the adjustments to the Policy should be reflected to all the existing Paracosm Fan Content - your creation should follow all the actual rules of the Fan Content Policy.
1.1 Feel free to create Paracosm Fan Content but take care to comply it with this Policy. Any violation of the rules of this Policy in any Fan Content is strictly prohibited.
1.2 This Policy applies to the intellectual property of Paracosm Project that you access after accepting our Terms of Service and all the user agreements with Paracosm Project. This Policy covers the Paracosm Fan Content, created on the base of those games, where you have agreed to the user license agreement.
1.3 Each part of Paracosm Fan Content must be appropriate for the Paracosm Project audience and consistent with the spirit and tone of Paracosm Project, which is determined by Paracosm Project. Paracosm Fan Content must comply with applicable law, may not violate the rights of others, and must not be obscene, sexually explicit, defamatory, offensive, objectionable, or harmful to others.
1.4 Paracosm Fan Content must have no commercial (i.e., monetary) objective. As an exception to this, fans are permitted to monetize web videos (such as YouTube) with advertisements, so long as those videos otherwise meet the requirements of this Policy.
1.5 Paracosm Project, in its sole discretion, can revoke your permission to create Fan Content at any time and for any reason.
1.6 You may not say nor imply that your Fan Content is endorsed or approved by Paracosm Project.
1.7 Your Fan Content may not include links to any website that promotes or exploits cheats or hacks to any games.
1.8 You may not create or use any Paracosm Fan Content in a manner that could cause people to believe that it is an official production of Paracosm Project. For example, a fan website may not be designed to look like an official Paracosm Project website, and it must be clear to visitors that the website is not a Paracosm Project website.
1.9 You may not use any intellectual property of Paracosm Project in any manner that is derogatory to Paracosm Project or that may damage the value, reputation, or goodwill of Paracosm Project or its products or brands (as determined by Paracosm Project).
