Announcement and request regarding updates to Service Master Terms of Use for certain transactions



pixiv Inc. will be updating the Service Master Terms of Use on Thursday, December 15th, 2022.

This update applies to certain transactions on BOOTH, pixivFANBOX, the pixiv Requests feature, etc.

This is a very important update, so we are explaining it in advance to all our users, and we ask our users to take action accordingly, as detailed below.

■ Regarding transactions for items

Many transactions take place on BOOTH, pixivFANBOX, and the pixiv Requests feature.
Some were found to violate the pixiv Terms of Use, Article 14 "Prohibited Conduct", Item 26 "Using the Services to display, sell, purchase, register, or engage in other transactions involving the products set forth below".

Furthermore, the rules or policies of Brand Protection for Card Networks transactions for content that is patently offensive, unethical, or promote criminal activity; such as, by way of example and not limitation:
・Sexual exploitation of a minor
・Incest
・Bestiality
・Rape (or any other non-consensual sexual behavior)
・Non-consensual mutilation of a person or body part 

Under the Service Master Terms of Use, we ask that all users check for items that include the above content on BOOTH, pixivFANBOX, and the pixiv Requests feature, and if such content is found, delete the items or set them to private.

■ Terms of Use update for December 15th, 2022
We will be updating Article 14 "Prohibited Conduct", Item 26 "Using the Services to display, sell, purchase, register, or engage in other transactions involving the products set forth below", in order to clarify the standards for items and content that fall under prohibited transactions.

The updated Terms of Use will be revealed in late November, and go into effect on Thursday, December 15th.

If you are concerned about whether your content is prohibited or not, please check the new Terms of Use when they are revealed in late November.
If you find content that is prohibited on BOOTH, pixivFANBOX, and the pixiv Requests feature, please delete the items or set them to private before the update goes into effect on Thursday, December 15th.

If we discover transactions for prohibited content after Thursday, December 15th, the items containing the prohibited content will be set to private.
Furthermore, users who repeatedly conduct transactions for prohibited content after the new measures are in place will have their accounts suspended.

pixiv aims to protect freedom of expression, and respecting the content of work is an important part of our policy.
We have updated our Terms because we believe that maintaining a safe environment for all user transactions is a part of supporting that policy.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
