1. The TMPLTS License

  1. For each digital template (called an “Item”) that you download either as a single purchase or as part of a TMPLTS subscription, you are granted a License to use the Item on a non-exclusive, commercial, worldwide and revocable basis. 
  2. Your License enables you to use the Item within your existing work, as a standalone Item, or as part of a new piece of content that you create.
  3. Your License gives you the right to utilize the Item as part of your public or client work, insofar as the work and usage complies with these terms.

2. What you can do with an Item

  1. You can use an Item to create an End Product for yourself or for a client. If you use an Item to create an End Product for a client, then you can transfer the End Product to your client under the Limited Sublicense set out in clause 5.
  2. If you transfer an End Product to a client, you do so by sublicensing these license rights in any Item within that End Product. The sublicense must only be granted on condition that use of the Item is limited to that use which is necessary in order to use the End Product, so the Item must not be extracted, reproduced or used in any other way (the Limited Sublicense). You must inform your client of this condition.
  3. You can modify or manipulate an Item, or combine the Item with other works, to suit your End Product. The resulting works created using the Item are subject to the terms of this license. You can do the things allowed in this clause as long as the End Product you then create using an Item is one that’s permitted under these terms.

3. What you can't do with an Item

  1. The Item can only ever be used by you, the original purchaser. This means that you cannot transfer the Item to someone else, or allow it to be used by someone else, even within the same company. This includes derivative works where you combine an Item with your own work.
  2. You can’t redistribute the Item in any way, including but not limited to as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items - even if you modify the Item. You can’t redistribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications. These things are not allowed even if the redistribution is for free.
  3. You can’t use an Item in any application allowing an end user to customize a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as an “on demand”, “made to order” or “build it yourself” application.
  4. You can’t use an Item for merchandising of any kind.
  5. You must not permit an end user to extract an Item or elements within the Item and use it separately from the End Product created using that Item.
  6. You can’t claim trademark or service mark rights over an Item within the End Product created using that Item.

4. Other license terms

  1. For some Items, a component of the Item will be sourced from a third party 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 in the Item’s description 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.

    For example: A theme might contain images licensed under a Creative Commons CCBY license. The CCBY license applies to those specific images. This license applies to the rest of the theme.
  2. For some Items, a GNU General Public License (GPL) or another open source license applies. The terms of any open source license will be included with the item (as a .txt file or, in some cases, embedded as part of the item itself). For any parts of the Item subject to the open source license, those open source license terms will apply to the 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.

    Open source licensing is relevant for themes and plug-ins for WordPress and other open source platforms. Where an Item has components that are licensed under the GPL or other open source license, information about the applicable license will be noted in the Item’s download files.
  3. You can only use an Item for lawful purposes. Also, you can’t use an Item in connection with material which is offensive, defamatory, pornographic, obscene or demeaning, or promotes discrimination. 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 connection with sensitive subjects.
  4. This license applies in conjunction with the User Terms for your use of TMPLTS. If there is an inconsistency between this license and the User Terms, this license will apply to the extent necessary to resolve the inconsistency.",
  5. This license can be terminated for any Item if you breach the license and don’t remedy the breach. If termination happens, you must stop using the relevant Item, which includes no longer making copies of or distributing the End Product created using that Item (unless you remove the Item from it).
  6. You can’t claim ownership of the original Item or elements inside of it, even if modified under clause 6.
