Yahoo has acquired automated graphic design startup Vizify. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, according to VentureBeat.

A portion of Vizify's statement about the Yahoo deal read: "As our conversations progressed, we realized we'd found a partner who shared our passion for user experience, design, and visualizing information. Ultimately, we just couldn't say no to the opportunity to bring our vision to the hundreds of millions of people who use Yahoo every day. As part of the transition to Yahoo, we will be sunsetting the Vizify service."

According to The Next Web, Vizify came up with three steps to handle the changes that will affect its users' accounts. The startup will issue a full refund for its clients on a paid plan. Those with Premium accounts with registered domains will be instructed on how to own the domain for free. Lastly, Vizify will launch an option for its bioholders to keep their bio on the same URL until September 04 of this year, the report explained.

Vizify was formed in 2011 by co-founders Todd Silverstein, Eli Tucker, and Jeff Cutler-Stamm, The Next Web reported.
