Website Terms of Service
If you do not agree to either this segment (1. Disclaimer) or the next segment (2. Your Agreement to the Terms), you should leave this site. Lor’Avvu (“the work”) is artwork and should be considered a work of free expression by Team Lor’Avvu (“the Authors”) under the universal human right to free speech, which is also protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, which guarantees the right of every individual to free speech.
The work is an artistic collaboration of multiple authors who aim to create artwork in the form of a “Free Cultural Work”, for the free and open enjoyment, capitalization and sharing of its concepts and ideas for anyone with legal right to access and use this work. It is a web site that contains adult concepts and graphics. The authors (credited on the CAST page) of this work do not take responsibility for misuse of the site or for derivative works. This work can also be sold, packaged or distributed in any variation that conforms to the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license agreement. Please view the Cast page and the license agreement in the footnote area of every page for more about the Creative Commons license we’re releasing the work under!
Human-readable summary of Sec 1: We like free speech, we have it, we want to have it and we use it and want to use it!
2. Your Agreement to the Terms
YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF ANY THE SERVICES (INCLUDING THE VIDEOS, COMICS, COMMENT SECTIONS or OTHER FEATURES) SIGNIFIES THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS. By accessing or using any Services you also represent that you have the legal authority to accept the Terms on behalf of yourself and any party you represent in connection with your use of any Services. If you do not agree to the Terms, you are not authorized to use any Services.
Human-readable summary of Sec 2: Please read these terms and only use our sites and services if you agree to them.
3. By using this web site, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
- 1. Maturity. You agree that you are “mature” by the laws and regulations of the jurisdictions to which you belong, and that you are sound enough of mind, body and spirit to read and watch adult material, including adult language, adult concepts, graphic violence, graphic sex and any other element of the story and the work that can be considered references to “mature” or “adult” experiences.
- 2. It’s public. All information you submit to this site using its forms or other contact information enters the public domain, and can be moderated, promoted or removed to conform with the intended content of the works according to its creative team.
- 4. You’re fine with it. You will hold harmless Team Lor’Avvu and the authors of this work for any content you find offensive, inappropriate or erroneous. Any actions taken by the creative team to maintain the “mature”, “responsible” or “open” atmosphere will not be held against the team.
- 5. Contributing information doesn’t make you an Author. Promotion of anything you deem a contribution is your responsibility. The Authors reserve the right to give and allot credit as an Author, according to a holocratic self-governering model by the Authors themselves. Credit itself, the amount of credit or how that credit is presented on this site is at the sole discretion of the Authors. Promotion elsewhere is not our responsibility. Credits will appear as egalitarian as possible and within reason.
Human-readable summary of Sec 3: The main concept to understand here is that the work is designed for the experience of site users who are mature people, who don’t get offended easily, who are excited to participate in or enjoy collaboration, who do not take it personally if a submission is rejected, modified, paraphrased or accepted as part of “the work” and who understand there is a difference between major and minor contributions to a creative work. We really want to include everyone who contributed anything, but we’re largely anarchistic and it’s up to you to do social networking to promote your contribution. You might be thanked under a general term like “contributors” rather than your name being listed; especially if you want a particular kind of credit that we can list.
4. Changes to the Terms
From time to time, the creative team may change, remove, or add to the Terms, and reserves the right to do so in its discretion. In that case, we will post updated Terms and indicate the date of revision. All new and/or revised Terms take effect immediately and apply to your use of the Services from that date on, except that material changes may take effect 30 days after the change is made and identified as material. Your continued use of any Services after new and/or revised Terms are effective indicates that you have read, understood, and agreed to those Terms.
Human-readable summary of Sec 4: These terms may change. When the changes are important, we will put a notice on the website. If you continue to use the sites after the changes are made, you agree to the changes.
