Terms of Use 2018-03-29T09:28:47+00:00

Creativechain Terms of Use

These Terms of Use (Terms) apply to your access and use of the Creativechain app as a decentralized platform for the distribution of free-to-code multimedia content that works on blockchain and peer-to-peer technology to create a digital art exchange environment without intermediaries.

To use Creativechain, you need to be of legal age (otherwise have the consent of your parents or guardians) and be a resident in a country where Creativechain is available.

What kind of content can I legally upload in Creativechain?

You can upload content that you created or that you own and that does not infringe the rights of others or is illegal or other content that you have permission to upload. This includes content in the public domain, Creative Commons or shared open source in accordance with the specific requirements of the license, and content protected by copyright in which you have legitimate permission from the owner.

Creativechain.org is a platform for distribution of Creative Portfolios and therefore does not support the use of its platform for pornographic, criminal, defamatory, hateful, degrading, illegal, immoral or to promote the illegal use of narcotic substances, pornography, weapons or prostitution.

Creativechain is a distributed platform that uses blockchain technology to index metadata at the same time as it works as a browser or data search engine in the blockchain network.

Does this mean that the data published in the CREA Blockchain can not be deleted if it is a 100% distributed project?

You have to differentiate between the network or CREA CORE protocol and the app or browser called Creativechain. The CREA CORE protocol works like any public blockchain whose ledger is indelible, resistant to censorship and facilitates data transfers through a P2P network without intermediaries.

On the other hand, to demonstrate the functioning of the CREA CORE protocol, the Creativechain app has been developed whose distribution software is under a GNU type GPL3 open source license and could be modified by third parties to create new applications that work on the CREA CORE protocol. These possible modifications could be made with the aim of improving the app itself or of censoring content, whose control in both cases would escape the distribution that we link on the website creativechai.org

In the case of the Creativechain app that is distributed from creativechain.org it could be the case of having to hide profiles selectively if it were the case that someone decided to use this network to publish contents of horrible or criminal nature, and that some competent authority will determine its concealment from the interface. But in any case it would be impossible to eliminate that user or content created from the CREA CORE protocol.

The platform has an option under the tab to be able to report the content or block all publications of that user. In this way, the Creativechain app development team, like any other public entity, will be able to detect users through their public key that could be infringing or committing a crime related to that published content. In the blockchain of the CREA CORE protocol all data is public and can be traced by authorities or third parties.

If someone created an app or website using the CREA CORE protocol in some other country, it would have to comply with the laws of that country. However, any of the applications would read the same blockchain of CREA CORE.

The peer-to-peer network depends on the IPFS network and the nodes (each app works as a node) to seed content. For this reason and unlike the metadata embedded in the blockchain Creativechain.org does not guarantee 100% that its files (audio, image, video,) are hosted on the network perpetually. Therefore, we recommend always keeping a copy of the original content to re-register or even be able to prove your property to third parties using the original hash and the data registered in the blockchain.

It is possible that some images are subject to other intellectual property rights, such as trademarks, advertising or privacy rights. Creativechain.org can not guarantee that any of the users of the app possess the intellectual property or the rights of exploitation or distribution of the contents published in its portfolio. If you have doubts, especially for commercial projects, it is recommended to perform due diligence before using a questionable image.
