importing these from my deviantart journal.
Journal updated: sep 22nd 2019
By owning one of my designs (obtained via trade, swap, sale, and any other form of exchange)
you agree to these terms and have the responsability to follow and respect them.
The terms of service protect both buyers and sellers from scamming and thieves:
in order to build a safer community and to respect the artist's work,
you are kindly invited to respect these simple, easy rules.
If you think you can't follow them, please, don't pruchase designs made by me.
these rules apply to all designs, be them new (created after the journal)
or old (created before the journal).
TERMS OF SERVICE
If there's any further question after carefully reading all the rules, you're welcome to expose your concerns to me.

OWNERSHIP AND GENERAL RULES
1.0 - Ownership is effective only after the payment (money/goods transaction) has been completed.
All designs should be submitted to the masterlist (deviantart.com/MionsList) for better administration of all designs. This step is crucial in order to notice if any scamming or thief is being done behind our and your back: please, check the interested design's actual owner in the masterlist's submissions before buying it from someone. This rule is obsolete. While if you can you should still submit designs to the masterlist, due to inactivity it's best to credit me in the designer field here on toyhouse.
1.2 - Twin / clone characters (same or minimally different design, mirrored design, etc) must be owned by the same person.
1.3 - Crediting me (oncha/mazamuno) as the design creator is mandatory.
1.4 - Under no circumstances you're allowed to apply your own selling rules on one of my designs. This means that rules and duties such as "the characters must only come back to me in case of selling", "do not sell to this specific person".
Please, be aware of sellers and users who ask said things.
1.5 - Do not steal, fully or partially copy, recolor, clone, or heavily reference any of my designs.
1.6 - After a design is sold, i delete every trace of them and take no responsability in whatever happens during third party sales: please, do not message me months or years after the design has been sold to track old art pieces, cause i do not keep them anymore.
EDITING AND TWEAKS - updated 09/22/2019
2.1 - Any edit to my designs is fine (be it gender, name, colors, markings, clothing, age, backstory) as long as the design is still recognizable. Even after edits are made, character must still be credited to me as the original designer and you (the owner) as the re-designer (or designer of the version you're actively using). Do not draw/edit my art itself, unless my permission was given (to you).
2.2 - Avoiding creating twins or clones of my design is preferred in order to avoid possible clams and confusion when the character will be sold. If twins are made, they shall be sold together as one.
SELLING AND TRADING - updated 09/22/2019
3.1 - A character can not be sold or traded for more than its worth*. Exceptions may present in case the buyer willingly offers a higher amount to get the design (ex.: "offer to adopt", acutions, and similar circumstances); the buyer must be aware of the real value of the design, which will always be specified by the seller in the place where the sale occurs.
3.2 - The previous rule applies to any form of payment and trade, wether it's art, money, points, characters, physical or virtual goods.
3.3 - Do not harass design's owners to sell, trade or gift you any designs if they are not up for offers.
* worth: a design's worth is the sum of the amount you spent to buy/get them and the total worth of self drawn, commissioned art or art trades (a.k.a.: the amount you spent - money or art wise - on that charachter). This is the worth the seller must specify when selling the character, and the one the buyer must be aware of when considering to buy.
RULE BREAKING AND BLACKLIST - updated 09/22/2019
4.1 - Willingly breaking any of the rules will cause you to be blacklisted, meaning you will not be able to get any more designs by me from the blacklisting moment.
4.2 - Under no circumstances you're allowed to ask or beg to be removed from the blacklist. If anything concerns you or think it might be a mistake, you're more than welcome to message me.
4.3 - If a blacklisted user is getting caught buying one of my designs after getting blacklisted, the character will be given back to the previous owner with or without refund depending on the situation. Every blacklisted user is directly tagged and privately messaged of being blacklisted and is well aware of their status: breaking rules again after knowing to not being able to obtain any of my designs makes them fully responsible of their actions.
4.4 - It is everyone's responsability to be aware of the blacklisted users: if one's got caught by selling or giving a blacklisted user one of my designs, they will be messaged regarding the situation and the status of said person. If no action is taken on the situation, or if there is no will/desire to remedy, said user will be blacklisted as well for not respecting the blacklist.
4.5 - Getting blacklisted is my professional choice; the purpose of the blacklist and of the Terms Of Service journal is to create a safe selling and trading community: if one individual is considered dangerous for it's personality or behavior to the artist's rights and content - such as having recent issues with ripping-off behaviors, thieves and breaking rules purposefully or repetively - they can be blacklisted as well.
