Please read these terms of service ("terms", "terms of service") carefully before playing the Astral Story game, creating or purchasing an Astral Story species character, or otherwise participating in Astral Story’s activities. These may also be referred to later as the "service" operated by Jackalune and Astral Story staff ("us", 'we", "our").

We will provide their services to you, which are subject to the conditions stated below in this document. Every time you visit the Astral Story website, use its services or make a purchase, you accept the following conditions. Breaking the Terms and Conditions agreed to here may result in a temporary or permanent ban from Astral Story game activities. This is why we urge you to read them carefully.

The entire compilation of the aforementioned content found on this website is the property of Astral Story and/or the content creators.

Players who submit user-generated content (user profiles, astral profiles, character concepts and designs, stories, and any other content created by a player) retain full ownership of this content.

By creating or purchasing an Astral Story species design, you agree that Astral Story retains the copyright of the species and traits; however, Astral Story does not make claim to the characters or designs inspiring derivative content created with Astral Story’s provided bases, species, traits, concepts, etc.

Users are free to use their owned and masterlist-registered Astral Story designs outside of the Astral Story game, for non-commercial purposes. These individual designs are owned by the users and thus we do not restrict their use in non-commercial activities, including but not limited to: using the characters/designs in role play outside of Astral Story canon, using the characters/designs in other art roleplay games (ARPGs), etc.

In the event of a ban, a user account may be permanently prohibited in participating in Astral Story and/or its adjacent activities. However: at no point will Astral Story or Jackalune ever repossess or retract a design you own that you previously purchased or created via Astral Story.

All communication with us is electronic. Every time you send us an email or visit our website, you are going to be communicating with us. You hereby consent to receive communications from us. You also agree that all notices, disclosures, agreements and other communications we provide to you electronically meet the legal requirements that such communications be in writing.
