This is planet FREEMIXX. A place where expression is visual.
Language here never developed to the degrees of abstraction it enjoys on planet earth.
Amongst our vibrant community you will find that messages evolve through remixing. In the process of touching and reshaping a visual composition it is often reported that individuals are able to cross a membrane beyond which unarticulated feelings, that allude them in words, are suddenly revealed clearly through images. Other individuals report that the images look quite nice.
Whatever your fancy, please stay, enjoy, rage, weep, reflect, and above all feel free.
Please read the following terms of
service (the “Terms”) carefully. This is a binding agreement between
Freemixx Inc. (“Freemixx” or “we”) and its users and visitors (“User,” “Users,”
or “you”) By using the remixing tools on Freemixx.com or associated sites (the
“Service”), you agree to abide by these Terms. These Terms may be amended from
time to time at Freemixx’s sole discretion. Freemixx will publish amendments to
these terms within the Service, and continued use of the Service indicates
assent to the modified terms. Should you disagree with these Terms, your sole
recourse is to discontinue using the Service.
1. Description and General Precepts. The Freemixx Service allows Users to
create collages, mashups, and other art using images from the web, the public
domain, and from the community of Users (we refer to such activity as
“remixing” and the resulting images as “remixes”). The Service includes a
variety of tools for remixing, as well as providing Users various means of
sharing their remixes with the community, their social media followers and
other personal contacts, and the general public. We operate the Service with
the following precepts in mind:
Internet is not a free-for-all.
We are firm believers in mashup culture, but Users may not appropriate other
people’s intellectual property, violate the copyright of others, or profit from
the work of others. The Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) protects the
rights of copyright holders on the Internet, and your use of the Service must
not violate the DMCA. Freemixx’s DMCA Policy is available here:
[freemixx.com/DMCA]. In the event that you violate someone’s rights of
ownership in content of any type, the remix in question will be deleted and
your right to use the Service may be curtailed or removed.
1.2 You are
responsible for actions originating from your account. A User’s account credentials (“User
Identification”) and the account itself (a “User Account”) are the sole
responsibility of the User. If your User Identification is stolen, or your User
Account is compromised in any way, you are required to notify Freemixx at your
earliest opportunity. Regardless of whether or not you were the actor,
actions associated with your User Account will be considered your actions in
the event that Freemixx is called upon to investigate a violation of these
Terms, the DMCA, or other damage to the community.
1.3 We are not
responsible for third party services.
Freemixx provides Users with links to third party websites, including without
limitation advertisements, links to printing services, features that connect or
associate your Freemixx User Account with other social media services, and
other means within the Service and Website. Freemixx is not responsible for the
actions or representations of third parties. Freemixx does not warn you when
you leave the Website to visit a third party site.
2. License Terms.
Fremixx’s License to Users. Freemixx grants Users a non-exclusive, limited

generically referred to as a “Website”).

copyrights you may have in your submissions to Freemixx or in remixes that you

unless and until you submit a written request to Freemixx to delete all User

We use the information gathered to better understand your needs, to improve the contents of our web pages and to monitor technical performance of our network. The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to the Site through optional registration; and (2) other information gathered as users navigate through the Site.
We may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while using our Site or in responding via email in connection with a feature provided on our Site. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information and personal information (such as your name, address, or email address) that you electronically submit to us for purposes such as registration for certain features on our Site, signing up for email newsletters, completing surveys, or posting comments on message boards or any public posting areas on our Site. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number) from users who make a purchase or conduct other transactions on our Site. The information supplied helps us to provide the product or service requested, offer you more personalized features, and tailor the Site to your interests. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply information requested, we may be unable to provide you with services offered to users of the Site.
We also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, we employ a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie" to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user's computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses the Site. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), the Site will not be able to ascertain the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user's computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you have entered preference information previously. Of course, you are free to set your web browser to disable cookies or otherwise limit the information we collect; however, doing so may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of the Site.
We also may use web beacons and other methods to access cookies and to count users who visit our Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Our Site's servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data such as the web pages users view. An IP address does not personally identify a user. We use this information to deliver the Site's content to you upon request and to measure traffic within the Site.
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features; we may offer advertising on the Site and may share your information with advertisers and their agents to better tailor such content. We also may provide your information to third parties, such as service providers, contractors, and sponsors, for a variety of purposes.
The information we gather and collect enables us to provide you with our website and to help you partake of our services. You agree that we may use your information to:
You may withdraw your permission and prevent our use of your information by contacting us using the contact information below.
You consent to our sharing of information for the purposes described below:

These activities could include processing payments, maintaining this Site, and providing business services to us or to you.
2) By Law or to Protect Rights:
We may disclose information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce our intellectual property rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Freemixx and our employees, and if necessary to defend against third-party claims. We may also disclose information when requested to comply with a court order, investigation, or governmental request.
3) Business Transfers:
4) With Your Consent:
We may share information when you provide us with your consent to do so. This may occur when you consent affirmatively or it may occur through your use of the Site as provided in this Policy.

5) We Won’t Sell your Information:
Please bear in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online - for example through comments and reviews or through email - that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides Freemixx. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
If you share information with us, you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided to us (and that we continue to store) at any time. Please contact us by phone, email, or postal mail using the information below to effect changes.
With the exception of transaction information that may be shared as described below, all information gathered on our Site is stored within a database accessible only by us. We will use industry standard measures, including encryption where appropriate. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures we implement may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
To provide the most effective and efficient service, we may use third-party services to complete transactions, such as credit card processing or order fulfillment. Information that you enter on our site for such purposes maybe stored, as described above, or may be immediately transmitted to such third-party without storage by us. We offer the such third-party services “As Is” with no warranty.
