:: Terms of Use ::

Failure to read my TOU is your fault, not mine.
If I feel my TOU are not being followed and respected this will result in loss of your membership.

When you fill out the join form to my site, I will be able to tell you have you actually read my terms or not.  If you have not, I will not grant you access to my members area.  I'm sorry, but rules are rules!

:: MY CREATIONS ::
*Please do not steal or copy my work.  I like it to be unique from others.
*Any work of mine that may resemble someone else's is purely coincedental.
*Please do not use my color palettes in your creations.  I know color palettes are not copyright, but I like my work to be different from others.  I want people to look at my tubes and know that it is a Precious Little Pixels tube.
*All of my 100% originals, lines and tubes that I have colored, must be credited and linked back to Precious Little Pixels and your membership logo must be placed on your memberships page or somewhere that it is visible.


:: GENERAL ::
*You are bound to these terms of use whether you read them or not.
*I have the right to deny membership to anyone at any time without reason.
*YOU DO NOT NEED A WEBSITE TO JOIN*
*You cannot claim my work as your own
*I have the right to change my membership prices at any given time
*I have the right to change my TOU at any given time without notice
*If you have joined during a short term membership and I miss a month or so of updates, I will add extra time onto your account for you, free of charge.  I want you to get the most out of your membership. 
*This is not an as is tube site!  If you are looking for as is tubes, please go elsewhere!  As is tubes & outlines are very saturated on the web these days so you can find them at just about any site out there!  Everything here is created from my own creativity and I do not purchase as is.  There are very few times that I will.   I work hard to bring my members creations that are not found anywhere else, than to chuck my site full of the same things that you can find at a dozen other places.


:: MEMBERSHIP TERMS ::
*Once you have sent payment, and your logo, username and password has been issued to you there are no refunds
*Any special licenses, gifts purchased during pixel parties, purchaseware or anything of this nature, once payment has been received you forfeit your right to a refund.
*Your membership is for YOU ONLY.  You may not share your account with any of your friends.  If you share your account with others, it will result in termination of your membership.
*Upon joining my site your logo/license must be placed on your memberships page and linked back to my site in one week.
*If your membership has been terminated due to stealing, claiming as your own, sharing my content to others who are not members, etc.. any of my work that you have used in your members area, sigtags, websets, anything of this nature must be taken down immdiatley and deleted.
**NOTICE TO LIVEJOURNAL USERS**

TOU Revised on: May 25, 2012

If you have any questions about anything at all, please do not hesitate to ask me!  I would rather have you ask me a million questions than for you to think something is okay to do when it's not.  I do not mind helping others and aswering any questions you may have.

Thank you for taking the time to read my TOU
