The user is fully aware that the choices he or she makes from the LOFI GENERATOR are fully dictated by the contents of which LOFI holds the patrimonial rights on behalf of its author in accordance with international copyright rules.
LOFI agrees, as the owner of the economic rights on any work resulting directly or indirectly from the generator, to the User that :

- The PNG file generated from the LOFI GENERATOR and received by email by the User can only be used in a private context or as an avatar on third party sites or social networks;
- A commercial use of the work chosen by the User is forbidden and can only be done after prior agreement from LOFI.
It is therefore forbidden for the User to make commercial profit from the work he/she downloads without prior authorization from LOFI.

Only the reproduction and distribution of the original work as generated via the options is authorized. If the User wants to modify it, he must obtain the prior authorization of LOFI.
