Using the FrankerFaceZ browser extension
No components of the FFZ extension may be redistributed, hosted, uploaded, or shared in their original or modified forms. The FFZ extension may only be downloaded from the sources provided on http://frankerfacez.com.
Using the FrankerFaceZ website
The FFZ website allows people to upload and share small images called "emoticons" (hereafter referred to as "emotes"), which are stored on FFZ servers. By uploading emotes using the FFZ website, users must confirm that they are not violating any copyright laws applicable to uploading or sharing the content. This may include, but is not limited to, receiving explicit permission to use the image, being the owner of the image, or confirming that the content of the image is in compliance with the United States FAIR USE Act or other applicable copyright laws. The user is fully responsible for the content that he/she chooses to upload and share on the FFZ website.
Upon uploading emotes to the FFZ website, the user hereby grants permission for FFZ to publish, share, and distribute the images by any means applicable to FFZ services. However, the user retains any other applicable copyrght protection governing use of the emotes. Because of this, users are forbidden from downloading, hosting, modifying, or redistributing content hosted on FFZ servers without explicit permission from both FFZ and the original owner(s) of the content.
After submitting an emote to FFZ, a user is considered the "owner" of that emote. The owner is capable of controlling additional aspects of the emote, such as publicizing, privatizing, deleting, or submitting replacement names or images for the emote. Listing an emote as "private" means that other users cannot add the emote to their channel, except when granted permission by the owner. Privatizing an emote does not retroactively remove the emote from any channels that have chosen to use the emote. Users may request their emotes to be removed from certain channels, but FFZ reserves the right to make the decision in this regard. In other words, privatizing an emote does not grant the user any additional rights in regards to the use or control of the emote.
Any emotes submitted to FFZ are expected to comply with the guidelines as listed on the emote submission page. The guidelines listed are the typical criteria by which emotes are approved or rejected for use with the FFZ extension and services. However, FFZ reserves the right to approve, reject, modify, publicize, privatize, transfer ownership, rename, or delete any emote submitted at any time and for any reason. Furthermore, the rules, guidelines, and methods for submitting emotes are subject to be revised at any time without notice. FFZ reserves the right to retroactively make any changes to previously-submitted emotes based on these revisions. FFZ also reserves the right to NOT make changes to previously-submitted emotes, even if the emotes in question conflict with the revised rules and guidelines.
Donating to FrankerFaceZ
Users can donate to FFZ using the Donate page provided on the FFZ website. The Donate page lists benefits provided through the FFZ service as an appreciation for donating. While FFZ does its best to provide the benefits as described, we are not legally obligated to provide any benefits in exchange for donating. Furthermore, we are not obligated to treat FFZ donors any differently in usage of the service, including usage of website features and usage of FFZ extension features. Donation benefits may change at any time. FFZ is not required to retroactively apply any of these benefits to users who have previously donated.
Using the FrankerFaceZ API
FFZ provides an API that enables users to access FFZ data and services programmatically. FFZ is not obligated to uphold the functionality of the API. Furthermore, the API may be changed at any time without notice. FFZ is not responsible for the functionality of any application employing the FFZ API.
Any user or application using the FFZ API must only use it for its intended purposes including retrieving user info, retrieving emote info, and providing FFZ emotes to external applications related to Twitch services. Any external application not related to Twitch may not use the FFZ API without explicit permission from FFZ. Furthermore, FFZ reserves the right to refuse API services to any user or application for any reason.
Termination of FrankerFaceZ Services
FFZ reserves the right to refuse or terminate services to users at any time, for any reason. This includes disabling FFZ website or extension features for any individual user, IP address, or Twitch account. Violation of the terms detailed in this document will result in termination as seen fit by FFZ.
The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to The Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.

Disputes - ARBITRATION
Before bringing a formal legal case, please first try contacting our Customer Support team. Most disputes can be resolved that way.
To the extent permitted under applicable law, any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the breach thereof, or any use of the Websites (including all commercial transactions conducted through the Website) ("Claims"), except for claims filed in a small claims court that proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis, shall be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with its then governing rules and procedures, including the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, where applicable. In agreeing to arbitrate all Claims, you and FrankerFaceZ waive all rights to a trial by jury in any action or proceeding involving any Claim. The arbitration shall be held in New Jersey, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. This arbitration undertaking is made pursuant to and in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act at 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. Subject to the limitations set forth below, the arbitrator shall have authority to award legal and equitable relief available in the courts of the State of New Jersey, provided that:
The arbitrator shall not have authority to award punitive damages; and
Any and all claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis only, and shall not be consolidated or joined with or in any arbitration or other proceeding involving a Claim of any other party. You and FrankerFaceZ agree that the arbitrator shall have no authority to arbitrate any Claim as a class action or in any other form other than on an individual basis.
For any Claims that are not subject to arbitration: (a) the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for proceedings involving Claims shall be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within New Jersey (the "Forum"), and the parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the Forum is not appropriate or convenient; (b) you and FrankerFaceZ waive any and all rights to trial by jury with respect to any Claims.
In the event that either party initiates a proceeding involving any Claim other than an arbitration in accordance with this Section, or initiates a proceeding involving a Claim under this Section other than in the Forum, the other party shall recover all attorneys' fees and expenses reasonably incurred in enforcing this Agreement to arbitrate and the Forum to which the parties have herein agreed.
