  • All Items

    An End Product is one of the following things, both requiring an application of skill and effort.

    For an Item that is a template, the End Product is a customised implementation of the Item.

    For other types of Item, an End Product is something that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item.

    Yes

    The Buyer can create the End Product for a client, and this license is then transferred from the Buyer to the client. Then this license is sub-licensed to The Buyer's client only for use in that specific End Product.

    The Buyer can make any number of copies of each End Product. Distribute an End Product through multiple media, and broadcast it or make it available online to an unlimited number of viewers.

    The Buyer can modify or manipulate the Item. The Buyer can combine the Item with other works and make a derivative work from it. The resulting works are subject to the terms of this license.

    No

    This license is a multiple use license allowing use in more than one End Product (and for an unlimited number of end users), but it is not a multi-client license. One license per item per client is required.

    The Buyer cannot re-distribute the Item as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. The Buyer cannot do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items, and even if has been modified. The Buyer cannot re-distribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications.

    The Buyer cannot use the Item in any application allowing an end user to customise a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as an "on demand", "made to order" or "build it yourself" application.

    The Buyer can use the Item in this way only if you purchase a separate license for each final product incorporating the Item that is created using the application.

    Although the Buyer can modify the Item and therefore delete components before creating a single End Product, the Buyer cannot extract and use a single component of an Item on a stand-alone basis.

    The Buyer must not permit an end user of the End Product to extract the Item and use it separately from the End Product.

    The Buyer cannot use an Item in a logo, trademark, or service mark.

    For some Items, a component of the Item will be sourced by the author from elsewhere and different license terms may apply to the component, such as someone else's license or an open source or creative commons license. If so, the component will be identified by the author in the Item's description page or in the Item's downloaded files. The other license will apply to that component instead of this license. This license will apply to the rest of the Item.

    Some Items are partially subject to a GNU General Public License (GPL) or another open source license even if the Item was entirely created by the author. For these Items, a 'split license' applies. This means that the open source license applies to an extent that's determined by the open source license terms and the nature of the Item, and this license applies to the rest of the Item.

    The Buyer can only use the Item for lawful purposes. Also, if an Item contains an image of a person, even if the Item is model-released you can't use it in a way that creates a fake identity, implies personal endorsement of a product by the person, or in a way that is defamatory, obscene or demeaning, or in connection with sensitive subjects.

    Items that contain digital versions of real products, trademarks or other intellectual property owned by others have not been property released. These Items are licensed on the basis of editorial use only. It is your responsibility to consider whether your use of these Items requires a clearance and if so, to obtain that clearance from the intellectual property rights owner.

    This license applies in conjunction with the Givo Terms of Service. If there is an inconsistency between this license and the Givo Terms of Service, this license will apply to the extent necessary to resolve the inconsistency.

    This license can be terminated if the Buyer breaches it. If that happens, the Buyer must stop making copies of or distributing the End Product until the item is removed from it.

    The author of the Item retains ownership of the Item but grants the Buyer the license on these terms. This license is between the author of the Item and the Buyer. Givo is not a party to this license or the one giving the Buyer the license.
