Art Requests and Submissions
Art is automatically requested by Aarvy from users, all over the world with a following agreement of the artist fees.
User shall submit content to site (submissions) in accordance with the applicable site instructions, deadlines,
standards, and criteria as dictated by site's offers(s) (each, an Art Request). Submissions that violate the terms
of this agreement shall be deemed rejected. Art Requests shall dictate and control (i) the form, length, and content

or request alteration thereto, within fifteen (15) business days of user's submission thereof to Aarvy. User's submission
shall be deemed to have been submitted as of the date upon which it is received by Aarvy. If Aarvy fails to render a
decision in regard to user's submission within such fifteen (15) business days of receipt of user's submission, then
Aarvy will typically deem the submission to have been accepted. Aarvy shall retain the sole and exclusive right to
reject submissions insofar as such submissions do not comply with Aarvys' instructions, deadlines, standards, or
criteria as dictated by Aarvy, or for any other reason in Aarvy's sole discretion. Aarvy may terminate any artist request
at any time prior to Aarvys' final and unconditional acceptance of user's submission.
Intellectual Property Rights
Upon user's receipt of payment for any submission, user irrevocably assigns, transfers and conveys and agrees to assign,
transfer and convey, to Aarvy all rights, and interests in and to the submission and all intellectual property rights
therein (defined below). Intellectual property rights includes, without limitation, all patent rights, copyright rights,
trademark rights, moral rights, publicity rights, privacy rights and any other intellectual property rights or
similar rights anywhere in the world covering or embodied in or relating to any submission. As to copyrights, the
user agrees that the submissions shall be deemed a "work made for hire" and that Aarvy shall be deemed the author
thereof for copyright purposes; provided, however, that if any submission is at any time determined to not be a work made
for hire, this agreement shall be deemed an irrevocable assignment of the copyright to the entire submission upon
payment in full thereof. Aarvy shall be the exclusive owner of the submission and the intellectual property rights therein
and shall have the exclusive right to secure registration of the submission. No rights in the submission, or in the
copyright in the submission, shall be retained by user, nor shall there be any reversion of those rights to user in the
future. The rights and licenses granted herein include all rights in and to the submission including, without limitation,
the right of Aarvy to edit, clip, crop, resize, retouch, alter, adapt, modify, create derivatives, distribute, make

now known or hereafter invented. User hereby consents to all uses and revisions to the submission and intellectual
property rights therein and hereby waives any moral rights or "droit moral" (including, but not limited to any rights
of attribution or integrity). User shall assist Aarvy to further evidence, record and perfect such arts and licenses
granted hereunder and to perfect, obtain, maintain, enforce and defend any assigned rights.
