Hi Yamio~ I'd like to borrow your Copyright Usage Policy~ It is clear and to the point and I can't really say it any much better than how you wrote it. 
Here's to asking permission to use that section of your TOS as a direct quote. I will provide direct link to your TOS journal entry as well as your DA page ~
