Chatlands is a online community, and as with other communities, there are
rules to help this be an enjoyable experience for everyone.
Use of Art Work and Intellectual Material
Chatlands is owned by wunderwood LLC (also referred to in this
policy as "we", "us" or "the company"). By allowing you to use this site,
wunderwood LLC has not given up any rights to the code, concepts,
art work, web pages or other intellectual property. You may not copy,
decode, or otherwise de-compile what we have created. You MAY NOT
redistribute any pictures, sounds or other media without prior permission
in writing from wunderwood LLC.
On Chatlands websites we allow the use of several types of Artwork or
other copyrightable intellectual property. These are typically poses,
backgrounds or text. The main types of artwork are Custom, Pre-mades, Free,
Mods, Objects and Backgrounds. Some of this Artwork and other creative
material on this site has been created and/or submitted by Users like
you. The Artist/Owner retains the copyright on submitted artwork. If the
User is not the same person as the Artist/Owner, the User must have
permission from the Artist/Owner before submitting the material to the site.
By uploading Artwork to any Chatlands site, you are affirming that you have
a LEGAL RIGHT to do so and that you have an agreement from the Artist/Owner
(the current owner of the copyright) that he or she has agreed with all of
the terms and conditions described here.
By submitting Artwork or copyrightable intellectual property to
any Chatlands, or by allowing others to do so, you hereby grant WUNDERWOOD
LLC an unrestricted license to display these works on this website and other
websites owned or operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC. This allows WUNDERWOOD LLC to
act as a service by hosting and enabling others to view your Artwork on the
site or on the forums. WUNDERWOOD LLC retains the right to reproduce and
redistribute your artwork on all parts of this website and on any other
website owned or operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC. It exercises this right on
behalf of the Artist/Owner.
WUNDERWOOD LLC agrees that any use of Artwork for other Commercial
Purposes (such as merchandise, ads and banners) will require additional
licensing from the respective Artist/Owner of said artwork.
WARNING: Your paid membership does not obligate any Chatlands site nor
WUNDERWOOD LLC to automatically accept submitted Artwork. All pieces of
artistic material must go through normal channels of approval that are
specific to each individual Chatlands site, via the individual site Art
Staff. This may include a waiting period, inquiries, and possible
rejection. PLEASE NOTE: Artwork that is determined as acceptable on one
Chatlands site does not indicate that it is automatically allowed allowed
on any other Chatlands site. Each individual Chatlands site may accept
(or reject) artwork that has already been allowed (or rejected) on another
Uploading artwork in which you (the User) do not own the copyright, or
have permission to use is NOT permitted. Doing so will only get you banned
from all chats owned or run by WUNDERWOOD LLC.
Our teams on Chatlands work hard to keep unwanted use of artwork to a
minimum. However, when material is submitted for public access, theft by
others is possible. By submitting artwork or other intellectual material to
any Chatlands site, you have agreed to not hold neither the site owner nor
WUNDERWOOD LLC, nor anyone directly or indirectly involved with WUNDERWOOD
LLC accountable for alleged theft or other alleged violations of
intellectual property rights on the site, or any other sites owned or
operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC. If you are the owner of the intellectual
property and you believe that theft has occurred, it is your obligation
to notify a site administrator so that a swift resolution can occur. A
permission list is also appreciated by site Art Staff teams.
The Artist/Owner recognizes that unwanted distribution may occur when
sharing artwork, or other creative materials. It is important to understand
that once a member of any Chatlands site has been given permission to use
artwork or other creative material, that permission CANNOT BE REVOKED.
However, if an Artist/Owner no longer wishes to allow their artwork to
appear on Chatlands, any future uploads of artwork such as poses, rooms or
other creative material will be rejected. The Artist/Owner recognizes that
it is important to keep Chatlands site owners and their teams notified if
they no longer wish to allow their artwork to appear on a Chatlands site.
"Commercial Purposes" - Using artistic or other intellectual property to
financially benefit any site owned or operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC through
advertising or bringing in revenue. This may include the material to be
used on CafePress, Zazzle.com, or other online stores. This does not
include the direct resale of said material. WUNDERWOOD LLC will not take
a custom pose and resell it to another User without permission from the
"Artist" - The person that originally created and thus probably, but not
necessarily, owns the copyright to the work.
"Artist/Owner" - The person that currently owns the intellectual
property rights to artistic material. This may not necessarily be the
original creator of the work (the Artist).
"User" - The person using any Chatlands chat site, or any of WUNDERWOOD
LLC's services. The User does have to own the intellectual property rights
to the artwork they are using, but they MUST have permission from the
Artist/Owner to submit the artwork to any Chatlands site.
"Administration" or "Team" - The employees or volunteers that work for
Chatlands chat sites and/or WUNDERWOOD LLC.
"Poses" - Pieces of artwork that represent someone on the chat. Some
poses are unique to that individual (Custom Poses). Others have been
obtained by a User/Artist as a set (Pre-mades).
"Custom" - Means there is no other like it. These might be rooms or
poses, and they could be made by the User/Artist, or have been commissioned
to be made by another User/Artist. These can also include custom colored or
shaded outlines, and Pre-mades.
"Pre-mades" are generally generic Poses that are only allowed to be used
by few individuals. Freebies can also fall under this category. These are
"Modified Poses" or "mods" for short, are poses that are made from
pre-existing poses. Whether they be from the Chatlands pose sets, Customs,
or Freebie poses. They are often made from a combination of different poses
a Custom pose to Freebie pose.
"Freebies include but are not limited to poses (outlines, grayscales,
Modified poses or full color poses or Custom poses), User-submitted rooms
(outlines, photographs or full color images), and forum avatars/signatures
that the Artist/Owner has allowed to be used free of cost on a Chatlands
site or other sites/chats. Any Artist has the right to impose limitations
and conditions on the usage of their artwork.
"Freebies" are made available for use by Users of Chatlands (and various
other sites/chats) remain under the jurisdiction of the Artist. The Artist
has the right to determine where and how they are used and alter their
limitations at any time. If unsure about the allowed usage of an image,
please contact the Artist or administration.
"Freebies" are not automatically labeled as Public Domain (no one owns
the rights). In order for Freebies to be considered Public Domain, it must
be made clear to the Chatlands Administration and Users that the material is
Subscriptions and other services on Chatlands websites are acquired by
expending "Deltas". Deltas (see the Deltas FAQ) are
purchased from us using PayPal. All sales are final. You may choose to
cancel your account on Chatlands at any time. Any credit remaining in your
account is NON-REFUNDABLE. Deltas purchased for Chatlands services are
treated in a manner similar to that of purchases for credit at an arcade
that uses tokens to operate their video games. If you wish, you may
transfer your unused Chatlands Deltas to another account before closing
your account. Once an account has been closed, all remaining Deltas are
permanently removed. Unspent Deltas cannot be transferred from a
previously closed account.
You may transfer credit from one Chatlands.com account to another, but
only if you have a valid e-mail address stored on Chatlands.com.
IMPORTANT: ALL FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS ARE MADE VIA PAYPAL. When we
transfer money to you for any reason, unless explicitly agreed upon in
advance by both parties, the financial transaction is made using PayPal.
PayPal will send an e-mail to your account notifying you of the completed
transfer. You should then follow a link in that e-mail to receive payment.
Financial transactions that are left unclaimed for more than 30 days WILL
We make every effort to protect your privacy (see our
for more). However, we do log the chat to protect both you and ourselves.
This log is kept confidential and unread unless there is trouble.
You must be at least 13 years old in order to make use of Chatlands or
have your parent's (or legal guardian's) permission. There are NO
EXCEPTIONS. This is not an arbitrary decision on our part. Like all other
websites operating inside the United States, wunderwood LLC must
comply with COPPA, the Children's Online
Privacy Protection Act (more information). Some
Chatlands websites have even stricter age requirements. Generally speaking
Chatlands websites are not intended for children under the age of 13
without parental supervision.
Chatlands.com was created so you can chat with friends. Misuse includes
harassing other users, using the messaging system to spam users, or to
solicit illegal activities. We reserve the right to ban any user from the
system for any reason.
We reserve the right to restrict the text you enter and the graphics you
submit, including, but not limited to your user name, the description of
your private room(s), and even your personal information. Many of our users
don't want to be exposed to profanity, vulgarity, or sexual insinuation.
The Constitution protects your right to say what you want. There is no law
that that compels us to broadcast your words for others to see. If you
desire free speech, do it on a street-corner and not in our chat.
There is no appeal process. All judgments are final. If you make yourself
unwelcome in the chat, there is no reason we have to let you back in.
Misuse includes, but is not limited to, activities such as these:
Note: This is not a comprehensive list but meant to serve as examples of
unacceptable behavior. If you have a question, ASK an administrator.
- writing scripts or programs that send the server multiple automated
- striving to crash or halt the system or to degrade its performance

- attempting to abuse the system or attempting to make the system
perform in a manner for which it was not intended
- attempting to guess, steal or secretly obtain someone's password
- attempting to gain access to someone's account without their prior
knowledge and permission
We take hacking and the threat of hacking very seriously and we will
defend wunderwood LLC and its properties against such threats. Do not
threaten to hack us. Do not threaten to hack another user. You will be
banned and you may face legal consequences as well.
