Attributed Free License Agreement

This is a legal agreement between you, an individual licensee, and Ayisee Stock LLC. (“Ayisee Stock”). It determines the terms and conditions under which you use photos, vector images, videos or other materials (“File” or “Files”) downloaded from the Attributed Free Collection at www.ayiseestock.com (“Site”). By downloading any File, you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement.

This is a single-seat license authorizing one natural person to access the account in order to license and use the Files. This agreement applies only to the limited Attributed Free Collection of Files available at Ayisee Stock without warranties and representations of any kind. Unless otherwise authorized below, you shall credit Ayisee Stock and Site each time you use a File under this license. You bear the sole liability and risk for any use of Files obtained under this agreement.

Ayisee Stock reserves the right to make changes to this agreement at any time and you agree to be bound by such changes. Such changes are legitimate and effective upon publication. If, for whatever reason, you disagree with this agreement and do not accept its terms, you may not enter the Site and use its resources.

  1. General Provisions
  1. Subject to the terms and conditions herein, Ayisee Stock grants you a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, non-transferable and non-sublicensable right to use and modify the File an unlimited number of times in whole or in part in the creation of items within the scope of permitted uses, but does not entitle you to the File’s copyright and/or intellectual property rights. All copyright and/or other intellectual property rights to the File are reserved by Ayisee Stock and/or the contributor of the File.
  2. This Attributed Free License allows you create Items for Resale or Items for Free Distribution only if the used File plays minor role in the item. Creation of Items for Resale or Items for Free Distribution is prohibited under this license if the used File plays major role in the item and adds value to it.
  3. You shall follow the Ayisee Stock’ attribution guidelines on the Site and prominently credit Ayisee Stock and the Site each time you use a File under this Attributed Free License. Ayisee Stock reserves the right to change the attribution guidelines from time to time at its sole discretion, which will be communicated to you on the Site.
  4. Item for Resale: an item that will be distributed to raise commercial revenue (e.g., resale of web templates, T-shirts, calendars, etc.). An item created at the request of a client is not considered an Item for Resale. However, if you distribute or intend to distribute such an item to raise commercial revenue, it is considered an Item for Resale. While working on a project, please take into account the final use of the item before downloading a File, to determine the appropriate license.
  5. Item for Free Distribution: an item that will be distributed to a wide audience without raising any commercial revenue (e.g., free web templates, postcards, flyers, etc.).
  1. Definition of the “minor role” and “major role” of the file for an item
  1. The role a File plays in an item is determined by the value the File adds to the item and how much the File influences a customer’s decision to choose this particular item among similar items:
  1. A major role: a File is considered to play a major role in an item if the File is a primary, defining, or important part of the item; increases the intrinsic value of the item; or influences a customer’s preference for this particular item.
  2. A minor role: a File is considered to play a minor role in an item if the File is an incidental part of the item; does not add significant value to the item; and does not influence a customer’s preference for this item.
  1. The Attributed Free License
  1. Provided that you credit Ayisee Stock and the Site as required above, the Attributed Free License allows you to use the downloaded File for the creation of all kinds of items, except Items for Resale or Items for Free Distribution where the File plays a major role in the item and adds value to it.
