Dealing with violation of our Terms
If you share, promote, or sell content that violates the guidelines listed above, it is a violation of our Terms of Service.
Depending on the situation, we may be forced to suspend your account and refund your sales. This is our prerogative as detailed in section 8 of our Terms.
But if that is not the case, and we are able to pay you:
- If your product is found to violate our Terms, the product will be removed but you will still be allowed to operate the account.
- On the second violation, you will be given a two week notice, paid out for your remaining sales, and your account will be deleted.
