Terms and Conditions
Please read this agreement carefully to ensure that you understand each provision.
Use of Our Service
CFD operates an online social media and brand design and management platform. We provide ready-made media and content that is licensable for use in accordance with our various licenses.
Eligibility. You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with CFD, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations. You must be 13 years old or older to use or access the Service, unless you are under 13 years old and your use of the Service is directly supervised by your parent or guardian or another authorized adult (e.g., a teacher) who agrees to be bound by this Agreement. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 who is not directly supervised by an adult is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement. The Service may not be available to any Users previously removed from the Service by CFD. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you have the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to fully perform all of your obligations hereunder. You further represent and warrant that you are under no legal disability or contractual restriction that prevents you from entering into this Agreement.
License to use the CFD Service. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Service and as permitted by the features of the Service. CFD reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the CFD Content (as defined below). CFD may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
Additional terms may apply for any content that you download from, upload to or print from the Service. Any such additional terms will be made available to you prior to initiating any applicable uploads, downloads or prints.
Your CFD account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a CFD account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to CFD with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.
You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. In order to be accepted as a Contributor (as defined below), we may require you to submit a valid photo identification. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You may not allow any other party to access or use the Service with your unique username, password, or other security code. You must notify CFD immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. CFD will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
You may control your User profile and how you interact with the Service by changing the settings in your account. By providing CFD your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your settings page. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
CFD usernames are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be offered for sale, sold, bought, solicited, or inactively held for future use. Inactive accounts may be renamed at any time without notification.
General Service Rules

Accessing the audiovisual content available on the Service for any purpose or in any manner other than Streaming (as defined below) is expressly prohibited. “Streaming” means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual work via the Internet from the CFD Service to a User’s device in such a manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the User.
We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to Users generally; or create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of this Agreement, or for no reason. Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement. If your account is terminated for any reason, you must obtain written authorization from CFD prior to establishing another account. If you attempt to establish another account without obtaining such authorization, CFD may permanently ban you from the Service. You may not have more than one active account at any time without the written consent of CFD in each instance. If such consent is granted, you may not submit identical Stock Media (as defined below) to more than one account.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other CFD Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. CFD shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s action or inaction.
CFD does not support and will not tolerate its Service being used to discriminate against others, especially when based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ancestry or national origin. You are not permitted to use the Service in a manner which would or would likely incite, promote or support such discrimination and you must not use the Service to incite or promote hostility or violence. If we believe in our sole determination that your use of the Service is being used to discriminate, especially if based on race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, ancestry or national origin, we may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service without notice and liability for any reason.
User Content License Grant
By publishing any designs containing User Content using the Service, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to CFD a multi-use, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Service and CFD’s (and its successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.

Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Intellectual Property Rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any CFD Content. Use of the CFD Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by this Agreement is strictly prohibited.

In order to Export any Stock Media from the Service, you must license the Stock Media. By Exporting any Stock Media from the Service, you hereby agree to be bound by any applicable terms and pay all applicable fees.

You agree to pay and be responsible for any and all sales taxes, use taxes, value added taxes and duties imposed by any jurisdiction as a result of the license granted to you, or of your use of the Stock Media pursuant to any license provided by CFD.
Certain aspects of the Service may be provided for a fee or other charge. If you elect to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to the pricing and payment listed on the Service which we may update from time to time. CFD may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion.
You may cancel your CFD account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation. In the event that CFD suspends or terminates your account or this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any credits, any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Service, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else.
Payment Information and Taxes
All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases, licenses, royalties, transactions, or other monetary transaction interactions.
Certain aspects of the service may allow you to obtain certain reputational or status indicators (“CFD Property”). You understand and agree that regardless of terminology used, CFD Property represents a limited license right governed solely by the terms of this Agreement and available for distribution at CFD’s sole discretion. CFD Property is not redeemable for any sum of money or monetary value from CFD at any time. You acknowledge that you do not own the account you use to access the Service, nor do you possess any rights of access or rights to data stored by or on behalf of CFD on CFD servers, including without limitation any data representing or embodying any or all of your CFD Property. You agree that CFD has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate CFD Property as it sees fit in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that CFD will have no liability to you based on its exercise of such right. All data on CFD’s servers are subject to deletion, alteration or transfer.
Notwithstanding any value attributed to such data by you or any third party, you understand and agree that any data, account history and account content residing on CFD’s servers, may be deleted, altered, moved or transferred at any time for any reason in CFD’s sole discretion, with or without notice and with no liability of any kind. CFD does not provide or guarantee, and expressly disclaims, any value, cash or otherwise, attributed to any data residing on CFD’s servers.
CFD cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
Since we respect artist and content owner rights, it is CFD’s policy to respond to alleged infringement notices that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”).

- Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and where it is located on the Service;

UNDER FEDERAL LAW, IF YOU KNOWINGLY MISREPRESENT THAT ONLINE MATERIAL IS INFRINGING, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION FOR PERJURY AND CIVIL PENALTIES, INCLUDING MONETARY DAMAGES, COURT COSTS, AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES.
Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying CFD and its affiliates that your copyrighted material has been infringed. The preceding requirements are intended to comply with CFD’s rights and obligations under the DMCA, including 17 U.S.C. §512(c), but do not constitute legal advice. It may be advisable to contact an attorney regarding your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, CFD has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. CFD may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the accounts of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless CFD and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy, publicity, or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule, or regulation; (v) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content, your Stock Media, or any content that is submitted via your account; or (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password, or other appropriate security code.
The service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Use of the service is at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. Without limiting the foregoing, CFD, its subsidiaries, and its licensors do not warrant that the content, including without limitation User Content and Stock Media, is accurate, reliable or correct; that the service will meet your requirements; that the service will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure; that any defects or errors will be corrected; or that the service is free of viruses or other harmful components. Any content downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the service is downloaded at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or mobile device or loss of data that results from such download or your use of the service.
CFD does not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any product or service advertised or offered by a third party through the CFD service or any hyperlinked website or service, and CFD will not be a party to or in any way monitor any transaction between you and third-party providers of products or services.
Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall CFD, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, that result from the use of, or inability to use, this service, including without limitation, your submission of User Content or Stock Media. Under no circumstances will CFD be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering or other unauthorized access or use of the service or your account or the information contained therein.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, CFD assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the service; (v) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through our service by any third party; (vi) any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the service; and/or (vii) user content or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party. In no event shall CFD, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers, or licensors be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses or costs in an amount exceeding the amount you paid to CFD hereunder or $100.00, whichever is greater.
No action, regardless of form or nature, arising out of this agreement may be brought by or on behalf of you more than one (1) year after the cause of action first arose.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, CFD shall not be liable for any damages, costs or losses arising as a result of modifications made to User Content, Stock Media, or other content, any additions or combinations of User Content or Stock Media with other content, or the context in which the User Content, Stock Media, or other content is used by you.
This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if CFD has been advised of the possibility of such damage. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.
Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
The Service is controlled and operated from its facilities in England. CFD makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable English laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by England, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the English government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in England.
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in England; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over CFD, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than England. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of England, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in England for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below. If you are a consumer, this agreement does not exclude any rights you may have under the national consumer laws of your jurisdiction.
For any dispute with CFD, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that CFD has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any CFD claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in England, unless you and CFD agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with arbiter rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights. All claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and CFD are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by CFD without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement.
Any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with CFD in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and CFD concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Careful Feet Digital’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this Agreement.
