2. If it is not yours, leave it alone. This means you should not attempt to gain access to another user’s account or anything located therein. Attempting to gain access to another user’s account may result in the banning of your own account, and may result in a permanent ban from the site. 2a. Do not impersonate other users, even as a joke. Impersonating staff members may result in the banning of your account. 2b. Do not claim other’s artwork as your own, or do anything else which implies you are the rightful owner and/or creator of content that you do not own/did not create. If you want to use someone else’s work, ask them and respect their wishes. It is a good idea to keep documentation of their permission on hand, as Acitius Staff may ask for proof.2c. Users may create custom pets of officially licensed or otherwise copyrighted characters, however the art used must be explicitly created for use as a custom pet image on Acitius.com. Custom pet art of these characters must differ enough stylistically from the character's original iteration that Acitius staff can easily tell that the art has not been traced, copied, or otherwise stolen from the source material.2d. While users are welcome to use official Acitius art on the Acitius website, as well as custom pet images, you must include the following disclaimer if you use these materials anywhere off of the site: “Copyright 2009-2017 Acitius, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Used With Permission”.2e. In cases where custom pets are sold, the purchasing user gains rights to make changes to the pet's name, stats, level, gamma, foods eaten, books read, relationship, dating presents, sacred stones, armory equipment, custom BFF pages, and profile page. The new owner gains the rights to use the pet's custom species name and the pet's custom art on Acitius.com at their discretion; these rights do not, however, extend off site. The new owner gains the right to recustomize the pet if so chosen, and may choose for this art to imitate any prior custom pet art attached to the pet. Purchasers do not gain rights to any "original characters" that may have been attached to the custom pet, and therefore the original creator of a custom pet may create a similar pet in the future, so long as they do not reuse art attached to the sold custom pet.2f. Custom pets and/or their designs may not be sold, traded, or otherwise given to others off site, nor may they be sold on-site for real life money. In cases where custom art is created through an on-site contest, the user running the contest becomes the rightful owner to any, and all, submissions unless otherwise stated and may be the sole user of these materials on Acitius.com.
