Terms of Service
Rayground is not responsible for the content you create. You are responsible for that content. Rayground reserves the right to suspend any user account without further notice and, in the same way, Rayground reserves the right to block any shaders or assets without further notice. We encourage freedom of speech, creativity and diversity of opinions and believes, but we will not tolerate content that threatens people or communities or is deemed inappropriate or insulting in any way.
Rayground or its contributors are not responsible for content shared on the website that can potentially damage hardware and/or software. The user agrees that WebGL and WebAssembly are delicate technologies and assumes all relevant risks when browsing, playing or editing the shaders. However, Rayground is fully committed to providing the best browsing experience possible. Our team constantly tests and reports any potential issues to shader code creators.
Although Rayground owns the data storage, databases and the Rayground site, the users retain all rights to their creations and can decide a specific license for it (see section "What license applies to my shaders code?" above).
Future compatibility of Rayground projects
The current version of Rayground is based on the WebGL2 specification and shader modules are compiled as GLSL code. However, we advice users to NOT assume anything about the programming language used, other than the publicly documented features and utilities. Technology on the Web changes regularly in order to adapt to new demand and challenges.
Future versions of Rayground may not rely on WebGL and/or GLSL. The Rayground team will make its best effort to preserve shader compatibility across versions of Rayground and we kindly encourage users to use the documented public API and the provided best practises.
