Here at Scopely, we’re passionate about our community and enjoy seeing what creative content our players come up with around Scopely’s brands! We encourage you to create fun and exciting content related to our games (“Fan Content”) and have developed this Fan Content Policy to keep your content on track and help guide you to a successful experience.
This Fan Content Policy governs your use of the copyrights and trademarks from Scopely’s games and services as described further in our Terms of Service (collectively, “Scopely Assets”) for Fan Content purposes. This Policy is part of Scopely’s Terms of Service, and we may update the terms at any time. Your use of Scopely Assets for Fan Content purposes is subject to Scopely’s Terms of Service, and in the event of conflict between this Policy and the Terms of Service, this Policy takes precedence regarding issues related to Fan Content.
Acceptable Fan Content. Unless given express permission by Scopely, you are not permitted to:
- Modify Scopely Assets;
- Create any materials from the Scopely Assets that resemble Scopely’s logos, trademarks, or other elements of Scopely’s products and services;
- Create new products based on Scopely Assets, such as games based on Scopely game characters;
- Register domain names, social media accounts, or related addresses that include Scopely Assets;
- Manufacture or distribute physical items like T-shirts that carry any Scopely Assets or other Scopely intellectual property; or
- Create or produce any novels, theatrical productions, or other adaptations that include Scopely intellectual property.
These restrictions apply regardless of whether the content is free. Examples of acceptable Fan Content are fan meetups, fan pages, fan-generated online guides and guide apps, and helpful gameplay videos, as long as they are not-for-profit and otherwise follow this Policy.
Disclaimer. You may not imply that Scopely is a sponsor or creator of your Fan Content or endorses your Fan Content in any way. Your Fan Content should contain the following disclaimer or a similar notice, “Scopely is not affiliated with this content nor has it endorsed, sponsored, or specifically approved it. For more information, see Scopely’s Fan Content Policy.” This disclaimer must be in a font legible to end users.
Monetization. You may not charge a fee of any kind from visitors or users of your Fan Content (including through in-app functionalities). You may use ads and donations as long as they comply with applicable laws, rules, regulations, and developer policies. If you use donations, they may not be tied to any special features, in-app purchases, or other benefits of any kind.
Developer Policies. It is important that you respect the rules of the platforms you use to share your Fan Content. You are expected to review and follow the applicable policies for those platforms.
Our Use of Fan Content. We reserve the right to use your Fan Content without compensation to you — for example, in our games, in our online channels, or for marketing activities. In doing so, we may choose to improve or modify your Fan Content as we see fit and in our sole discretion.
Non-Disclosure and Feedback. You may not disclose any information you receive from us regarding Scopely content that has not yet been published. You understand that we may use any feedback, information, or suggestions you provide to us without compensation or any further obligations to you.
Reservation of Rights. We reserve the right to determine what type of Fan Content is acceptable and may revoke this limited right to use Scopely Assets at any time and for any reason, with or without warning.
