Website Ownership and Intellectual Property

The service’s content owner, responsible for the publications, webmaster, and data protection representative is Taisa Lavi.

We maintain the policy the content has to be 100% original and retain ownership of our content, but auto racing is a specific discipline. 

Therefore, some photographs, descriptions, brand names, graphics, and logos are examples of content that could be covered by intellectual property rights. It can be owned by Formula One and WRC groups of companies. F1, FORMULA ONE, FORMULA 1, FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, GRAND PRIX, WRC, FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP, RALLY and related marks, are trademarks of Formula One Licensing B.V. and WRC Promoter GmbH 2014 – 2023 respectively. Grixme is unofficial. It is not associated in any way with those brands. However, as we write about this sport, we have to mention these.

The Agreement does not transfer from Us to you any of Ours or third-party intellectual property. And all rights, title, and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with Grixme and its licensors.

Our steps in the Intellectual Property

Service’s approach to content rights

We know how hard it is to come up with the original content and how expensive can be to take the right photos in motorsport. We appreciate the work of anyone who is involved in the sport. Therefore, we maintain the intellectual rights of others and ask the other services to do the same in the case of Grixme.


In case we are forced to mention the trademarks, we respect them by making links to them in purpose to refer these brands. This term of use covers all: the small companies, which of their information we can share on the website, to the big promoters, on which events we are writing about.

Also, we use photographs, which are free to use, including commercial use. However, as our additional step in content rights, we mention the author and link to them, if it is possible.

As for user-submitted content, we allow guest posts. However, it happens only after our full revision.
In this way, we keep the Intellectual Property of the provided content. We make the mention of the authorships with traditional information that they need, including photos, videos, music, etc.

Limitation of liability

Affiliate disclosure

We maintain transparency in the cases of our partnerships and content monetization.

We do not advertise other products or services because it requires personal experiences first. Therefore, in our turn, it would be unfair to our audience. However, as one of our goals is to promote car racing sport, we support rookie drivers, teams, circuits, and events, writing about those in our posts. These articles were made not for sponsorship but to increase the sport’s popularity. Moreover, it allows us to find thrilling stories and characters. 

You have to know that we always note such posts as ‘provided under the partnership.

As for monetization, we focus on the Google AdSense program, which allows online publishers to earn money by displaying third-party Google ads on the site.

We carry about ads displayed on the website, checking the relevance, but if you face a problem with ads you see on the website or find these annoying or inappropriate, feel free to contact us at hi@grixme.com.
