FAN CONTENT POLICY

Last updated on August 26, 2020

Everyone at Ultimate Gamer is extremely honored by the interest shown by our fans in our games and our company, and we think it’s cool that you want to create artwork, websites, and other stuff based on our intellectual property. At the same time, we spend a lot of time, thought, and money creating our intellectual property and need to protect it.

In most cases, using our games, artwork, videos, music, characters, logos, and other intellectual property (“Ultimate Gamer IP”) without our permission is illegal and a violation of our rights. So we created this Policy to explain what you may do regarding your Fan Content. In this Policy, “Fan Content” means: (i) your fan art (such as artwork, photographs, videos, and other materials) that is based on the Ultimate Gamer IP; and (ii) your Ultimate Gamer IP-related personal, non-commercial websites and apps that are freely accessible to the public.

Please read this Policy carefully before creating any Fan Content. We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time by posting the revised Policy to our website. Any existing Fan Content that no longer complies with this Policy due to a change in the Policy must be modified to be compliant with the Policy.

Section 1 – General Rules

1.1 You may create Fan Content based on Ultimate Gamer IP as long as you comply with this Policy. Any Fan Content that violates this Policy is prohibited.

1.2 This Policy applies only to Ultimate Gamer IP that you access pursuant to Ultimate Gamer’s Terms of Service, end user license agreements, and/or other agreements you have with Ultimate Gamer.

1.3 All Fan Content must be appropriate for the audience of the Ultimate Gamer IP and consistent with the spirit and tone of the Ultimate Gamer IP (as determined by Ultimate Gamer). Fan Content must comply with applicable law, may not violate the rights of others, and must not be obscene, sexually explicit, defamatory, offensive, objectionable, or harmful to others.

1.4 Fan Content must have no commercial (i.e., monetary) objective. As an exception to this, fans are permitted to monetize web videos (such as YouTube) with advertisements, so long as those videos otherwise meet the requirements of this Policy.

1.5 Ultimate Gamer, in its sole discretion, can revoke your permission to create Fan Content at any time and for any reason.

1.6 You may not say nor imply that your Fan Content is endorsed or approved by Ultimate Gamer.

1.7 Your Fan Content may not include links to any website that promotes or exploits cheats or hacks to Ultimate Gamer’s games or any other games.

1.8 You may not create or use any Fan Content in a manner that could cause people to believe that it is an official Ultimate Gamer production. For example, a fan website may not be designed to look like an official Ultimate Gamer website, and it must be clear to visitors that the website is not an Ultimate Gamer website.

1.9 You may not use any Ultimate Gamer IP in any manner that is derogatory to Ultimate Gamer or that may damage the value, reputation, or goodwill of Ultimate Gamer or its products or brands (as determined by Ultimate Gamer).

1.10 You must display the following disclaimer on or in connection with your Fan Content, including on any web page containing your Fan Content:

  • Portions of the materials used are trademarks and/or copyrighted works of Ultimate Gamer Games, Inc. All rights reserved by Ultimate Gamer. This material is not official and is not endorsed by Ultimate Gamer.

1.11 If you use Ultimate Gamer marks or , logos(“Marks”) in connection with your Fan Content, you must follow these rules:

  • Marks must be used only in connection with discussion of the Ultimate Gamer products or business they represent. Do not use Marks to identify or promote you, your Fan Content, or any other products or business.
  • Marks must be used in a manner that will enhance and not damage the reputation and goodwill associated with the Marks.
  • Do not use any Marks in the name of a website unless it is clear from the name that the website is not an official Ultimate Gamer website.
  • Do not register or use any domain name that is confusingly similar to our domain names.
  • Do not alter any Marks
    • The colors of a logo should not be altered, and the design and appearance of the logo should not be modified or adapted into a new logo.

Except for the limited permission described in Section 1 above, your use of any Ultimate Gamer IP is subject to Ultimate Gamer’s Terms of Service, end user license agreements, and other agreements you may have with Ultimate Gamer regarding the websites, games, and other materials from which you access the Ultimate Gamer IP. Those agreements include important legal terms (such as limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, and dispute resolution), so please review those agreements carefully before creating any Fan Content.

Section 3 – Do Not Send Ultimate Gamer Your Fan Content or Game Ideas
