Terms of Service
These Terms of Service ("Terms") shall govern your use of the Creatious platform and services ("Platform"), accessible at creatious.io or via the Creatious app. By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use the Platform. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, please do not access or use the Platform.
We reserve the right to update and revise these Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. Your continued use of the Platform after any changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms. Please review these Terms periodically for any updates or changes.
2. What is Creatious
Creatious is a platform where fans support and engage with creators ("Creators"). Creatious provides Creators with the tools to 1) setup a creator profile that links to their work on various other sites from a single place, 2) create and sell virtual stickers ("Stickers") on their profile as a means to collect tips from their fans (or "Collectors") and 3) post content on their profile to communicate with their Collectors or the public.
3. About Creators
Creators are at the heart of Creatious. To become a Creator, a user logs in to the platform by connecting their web3 wallet (e.g. browser extension), sets a username and selects the "Become a creator" button. Once a creator profile has been set up, a creator can manage profile information, such as description texts and external website links, create posts and generate "Stickers" by submitting the "Create a sticker" form. A Creator creates a Sticker, sets the price and sells Stickers directly to Collectors.
4. About Collectors
Collectors are users, that support creators by buying Stickers from them. Collectors can interact with Creators by liking and commenting on their posts. "Collectors" can also be anonymous blockchain users that hold any number of Stickers in their wallets, for example because they were gifted a Sticker from another blockchain wallet.
5. About Stickers
Stickers are fungible tokens on the Cardano blockchain. While these tokens technically only hold a reference to an image hosted on IPFS along with some additional metadata, a Creator can decide to tie rewards to Stickers in plain text on the Creatious platform. These become part of the purchase agreement between the Creator and the Collector and must not include any form of equity, financial profit or prohibited items. Examples of allowed rewards include exclusive access to digital content, e.g. through token gated posts, websites, or other communication channels.
6. Your account on Creatious
Anyone can browse Creatious and view Collector or Creator profiles, but to access certain features you may need to log in to create a user account. Features requiring a user account include collecting new stickers, uploading header images and description texts, or liking and commenting on posts. To create a user account you will need to connect one of the supported wallets, such as Nami, Flint or Eternl Wallet. When logging in, you accept that information related to this wallet, such as your payment & stake addresses and asset balances, become publicly visible on the platform.
7. Fees and Taxes
Any payments occur directly between the Collector and the Creator via blockchain, with a fixed fee of 0.1 Ada (~0.03$ at the time of publication) sent to Creatious for providing the Platform. We reserve the right to adjust this fee at our sole discretion in the future.
You agree that you are solely responsible for determining which, if any, taxes apply to your Platform transactions.
You retain full ownership of all content that you post on Creatious. However, we need certain licenses from you to operate the Platform effectively.
Solely for the purpose of operating and promoting the Creatious Platform, you grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, reproduce, distribute, perform, publicly display, or create derivative works of your content by posting content on Creatious.
We will never try to steal your content or use it in an exploitative way. You may not post content that infringes on the intellectual property or proprietary rights of others.
Unless stated otherwise in writing by us, all other content and materials on the platform, including the Creatious logo and any designs, text, graphics, pictures, information, data, files, and their arrangement (collectively, "Creatious Content"), are the property of Creatious, our users, our affiliates or licensors, as applicable.
9. Reporting infringements

You acknowledge that accessing and using Creatious is at your own risk. You understand that Creatious will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when using Creatious, regardless of the cause.
You are aware that you need to do your own research before you trust that the Creator you want to support on the Platform is who they claim to be. Always check multiple sources, e.g. social media sites, to be sure the Creator is the authentic profile owner.
You are also aware that prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile and make it difficult to asses the size and impact of support for both, the collectors and the creators.

- stopping the sale or creation of Stickers
- removing, taking down and/or unpinning the links to the content and artwork associated with the Stickers
- removing any content, texts, images, comments, user or creator profiles.
