Artwork & Images
All artwork uploaded and posted on Art Haven's website is subject to copyright and belongs to their owners, respectively. Do not upload or take images without permission. All branded artwork and images belong to Art Haven and are not to be used anywhere without explicit written permission from an Administrator or Coordinator, unless involving branded event templates in which you will require permission from an Event Coordinator.
Art Haven may share artwork posted to the website on our official social media sites and newsletters. Links to our social media can be found at the bottom of the website in the footer area. We will always credit all images shared with a link back to the creator whenever possible. Any unwatermarked images will be given a branded watermark to help deter improper usage. Unlike other social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc., we will never appropriate or sell the rights of your works to our contractors or any other third party companies. By posting your artwork on Art Haven, you are only granting us a simple license to share the work on our socials whenever appropriate.
You can opt-out of having your artwork shared by sending in a support ticket and requesting to be added to our blacklist, however, keep in mind that this will effect how your artwork is used everywhere. We do not have a system complex enough to be able to pick and choose what can or can't be used, so we are forced to do an "all or nothing" approach until further notice. By opting-out, you will no longer be eligible for AOTM (Artist of the Moment), MTA (Meet the Artist), event/contest designs or winner shout-outs, advertisements, and any other programs we offer that we use to showcase artwork through our socials. You are more than welcome to continue to participate in our events and contests, but your entries will not be featured or promoted if you earn any kind of placement to honor your choice.
Disclaimer: Only the original creator can opt-out of showcasing their works as in most situations they maintain original copyrights to the works regardless of sale. We will not remove other artist's works at the request of buyers/third parties unless proof of copyright transfer is provided.
