Commercial use of any Protochroma content and assets (including old content and assets no longer actively utilised) is forbidden by anyone except for Protochroma, its Administrator (presently the copyright holder of Protochroma, Whitney Y. M.) and the person(s) involved in the creation of said content and assets. In the case of the person(s) involved in the creation of a particular instance, they are bound to whatever terms they agreed to during the creation of said instance.

Non-commercial usage of Protochroma’s content and assets (such as user-created artwork based on said content and assets) is permitted, provided that said usage clearly states and does not infringe upon Protochroma’s copyright of its content and assets.

The Administrator and Staff of Protochroma will never ask a user for their account’s password. Protochroma is under no obligation to restore any part of or reverse any changes made by unauthorised access to an account, as such actions may negatively affect the accounts of other users due to the nature of some of Protochroma’s game mechanics.
  • A user with a terminated account can only be granted permission to create a new account by the Administrator.

Accounts may lose access to anything acquired as a result of an exploit or unintended behaviour.

Abuse of Protochroma’s infrastructure is forbidden.
