Copyright and licenses
1. As the purchaser, with a regular license you obtain the non-exclusive worldwide right to use the digital Product you have chosen.
More information about the use you can make of the Product can be found in this license.
2. You are allowed to use the Product to create one single Final Product for yourself or for your client (a “single application”), and the Final Product can be distributed free of charge.
3. By Final Product, we mean one of the following things, which require some kind of work.
(a) If the Product is a template, the Final Product is a customised implementation of the Product.
For example: if the Product is a website theme, then the Final Product can be the final website adapted to your content.
(b) If the Product belongs to a different category, a Final Product is a work that includes the Product as well as other things, so the Final Product is different from the Product in its nature.
For example: if the Product is a button graphic, then the Final Product can be a website.
What you can do with the Product:
4. You can provide a client with a Final Product at any fee. In this case, this license is transferred to your client.
5. You can as many copies as you like of the single Final Product, as long as it is distributed free of charge.
6. You can edit the Product. You can combine it with other works and make a derivative work from it. The resulting works must comply with this license. All these things are allowed as long as the Final Product you then create is included in point 3.
For example: you can license a brochure template, add your own images, edit the layout and use it to promote an event.
What you can’t do with the Product:
7. You can’t sell the Final Product, except to one client.
8. You can’t re-distribute the Product as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with the Product itself, nor with the Product combined with other products. You can’t do it even if you edit the Product. You can’t re-distribute the Product neither in its original form, nor with minimal modifications. You can’t do these things even in case the re-distribution is free of charge.
For example: you can’t buy the Product and sell it or give it to more than one client.
9. You can’t use the Product in any application which allows final users to customise a digital or physical product as they like, such as a “make it yourself” application. You can use the Product in such a way only if you buy a license for each final product including the Product created with the application.
Examples of “make it yourself” applications: e-card generators, website builders, “create your own” slideshow apps. Each product created by a customer will require a separate license. Contact us to discuss specific issues.
10. You can edit the Product and delete elements you don’t need before creating your single Final Product, but you can’t extract and use a single element of the Product in other works.
For example: if you license a website theme containing icons, you can delete from the theme the icons you don’t need, but you can’t extract an icon and use it outside of the theme.
11. You must not allow a final user of the Final Product to extract the Product and use it separately from the Final Product.
12. You can’t include a Product in a trademark, logo, or service mark.
13. For some Products, an element of the Product will be taken by the author from elsewhere and different license terms may apply to the element: it could be a another author’s license or an open source or creative commons license. In this case, the element will be indicated by the author in the Product’s description page or in the Product’s downloaded files and, instead of this license, the other license will apply to that element, while this license will apply to the rest of the Product. For example: if a theme contains images licensed under a Creative Commons CCBY license, those specific images are licensed under the CCBY license, while the rest of the theme is licensed under this license.
14. For some Products, a GNU General Public License (GPL) or another open source license applies. The open source license applies as follows:
(a) In some cases, even though they are entirely created by the author, some Products may be partially licensed under the open source license. The license will be “split”: the open source license applies to an extent that’s determined by the open source license terms and the nature of the Product, and this license applies to the rest of the Product.
This can be the case of themes and plug-ins for WordPress and other open source platforms. Split licenses are indicated in the Product’s download files: for more information, contact us.
(b) For some Products, the author might have chosen to apply a GPL license to the whole Product. In this case, the relevant GPL license will apply to the entire Product instead of this license.
A Product entirely licensed under a GPL license will be identified as a GPL Product and this information will be noted in the download files.
15. You can only use the Product for purposes which don’t infringe the law. In addition, if an Product contains an image of a person, even if the Product is model-released, you can’t use the image to create a fake identity of the person, or in a way that it implies personal endorsement of a product by the person, or in a defamatory, obscene or demeaning way, or in connection with sensitive subjects.
16. Products containing digital versions of real products, trademarks or other intellectual property owned by other people have not been property released. These Products have a license for editorial use only. You have the responsability to consider whether your use of these Products is appropriate or to ask the intellectual property rights owner more information.
17. If you breach this license, it will be terminated. In case of termination, you must stop making copies of or distributing the Final Product until you remove the Product from it.
