Terms of Service
Last updated September 17th, 2019
Description of Service
In other words...
We make Sharpen.design so designers can practice design easier. We might make other things in the future, too.
Acceptance of Terms
By using Sharpen.design, you agree to all of these terms.
Modification of Terms
In addition, when using certain components of the Site, you will be subject to any additional terms, policies, rules or guidelines applicable to the Site or such components of the Site which your use thereof constitutes acceptance of such additional conditions.
The only constant is change.
We’ll notify you if any of these terms change through reasonable means.
Your access to and use of the Site and our Services may be interrupted from time to time as a result of technical malfunction, updating, maintenance or repair of the Site or any other reason within or outside of our control. Sharpen reserves the right to suspend or discontinue the availability of the Site, any Service and to remove any User Submitted Content at any time at its sole discretion and without prior notice. Sharpen will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the Site having technical interruptions or being offline.
We’re only humans.
Stuff might break. If it does, rest assured we’ll work on fixing it asap.
Sharpen may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Site and the Services without notice or liability, at its sole discretion. Sharpen makes no guarantee or promise that any User Submitted Content or data collected as part of using the Services will remain accessible for any amount of time unless explicitly and specifically listed as having such a guarantee or promise.
In plain English...
This entire site is subject to change.
Information we collect
Sometimes we need information, like your email address, for certain features on the site to function.
Sharpen respects the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond promptly any claim that Content posted on the Site infringes the copyright or other intellectual property rights (“Infringement”) of any person. Sharpen will use reasonable efforts to investigate notices of alleged Infringement and will take appropriate action under applicable intellectual property laws and these Terms where it believes an Infringement has taken place, including removing or disabling access to the Content claimed to be infringing and/or terminating accounts and access to the Site.
Don’t be a jerk.
Stealing isn’t cool. If you infringe on the rights of others, we’ll investigate. Maybe law enforcement will tag along, idk.
To notify Sharpen of a possible Infringement you must submit your notice in writing to the attention of “Copyright Infringement” care of firstname.lastname@example.org and include in your notice a detailed description of the alleged Infringement sufficient to enable Sharpen to make a reasonable determination. Please note that you may be held accountable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) for misrepresenting that any User Submitted Content is infringing your copyright.
We got your back.
Let us know if someone stole your work and posted it on the site. Make sure to bring evidence.
If we remove or disable access to User Submitted Content in response to a notice of Infringement, we will make reasonable attempts to contact the user who posted the affected User Submitted Content. If you feel that your User Submitted Content is not infringing, you may provide Sharpen with a counter notice in writing to the attention of “Copyright Infringement Counter Notification” at email@example.com. You must include in your counter notice sufficient information to enable Sharpen to make a reasonable determination. Please note that you may be held accountable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that your firstname.lastname@example.org is not infringing the copyrights of others.
We still got your back.
Let us know if someone wrongfully accuses you of stealing their stuff on the site. Make sure to bring evidence.
Unless otherwise expressly authorized herein or in the Site, you agree not to display, distribute, license, perform, publish, reproduce, duplicate, copy, create derivative works from, modify, sell, resell, exploit, transfer or upload for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Site, use of the Site, or access to the Site.
Free means free.
Sharpen is a free-to-use tool. Please don’t abuse that good-will.
The Site may provide, or third parties may provide, links or other access to other sites and resources on the Internet or to third party applications. Sharpen has no control over such sites, resources or applications and Sharpen is not responsible for and does not endorse such sites, resources or applications. You further acknowledge and agree that Sharpen will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, events, goods or services available on or through any such sites, resources or applications. Any dealings you have with third parties found while using the Site are between you and the third party, and you agree that Sharpen is not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against any such third party.
We’re not sure who would ever assume this, but we don’t own or operate every site we link to. Sometimes we like to just share cool stuff we find. Like this video!
Generator content policy
The Generator is capable of creating millions of random design prompts by combining various inputs in a random fashion. As such, we have not reviewed every single end result the generator is capable of creating. Sharpen makes no guarantee to the contents of any prompt generated, and no design prompt that the Site displays is intended to be an endorsement, advertisement, or recommendation, unless formally and explicitly stated otherwise.
All content the Generator displays is for practice design exercise purposes only, and is not intended to be in a solicitation of your services, or the services of any entity or person that you represent. No offer or solicitation is being extended or made by using the Site unless explicitly and reasonably stated.
We’ve seen some weird prompts too.
The generator sometimes has a mind of its own and makes weird prompts. We’re sorry if it does - we’re always working on making it better.
It’s like a P.O. box for the internet.
If you want to reach out, you can.
Indemnity and release
If things go wrong, you agree that we’re not at fault.
Effective date of this policy.
This policy is effective as of September 17th, 2019.
