SHORT VERSION:[]

Drooodle is an online tool for creating and remixing images with friends and strangers. By submitting images, you aknowledge that other people can edit, remix and republish your work within the service. Drooodle is made to foster creativity trough creation and destruction. We believe that creating things is best done together.

Our service is currently free, as an early beta offering. By signing up, you acknowledge that you are aware that in the future we will add advertising and offer you paid upgrades. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your account and to let you express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your account (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).

The use of drooodle is a privilege, not a right. Missuse of the service (yes, we will be the judge), will cause you to be banned from the site. This means that we preserve the right to delete any image or delete both your user, all of your images and report you to the authorities if neccesary.

Dont’s:[]

- Don’t use drooodle if you are under 18 years of age. (We plan to lower our age limit later, but while we are in beta, you need to be at least 18 year old or get consent from your parents or guardians.)

- Don’t be a jerk or a troll when using drooodle.

- That means don’t draw, upload, discuss, spread, request or link to pictures or content containing obscenity, advertising, solicitations, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages illegality. Or anything else that violates local or United States law.

About the drooodles you create:[]

Everything on drooodle is publicy available, unless you choose to make your content private. Private drooodles shared with a friend are only private until the link is shared with someone else. Eg. the internet.

In other words: don’t create stuff that you don’t want other people to see.
