Terms of Use

This agreement (“Agreement”) is between you (“Licensee”) and Tree Water Studio, represented by Melissa Williams (“Artist”). By purchasing, downloading, or using any resources (“Resources”) from Tree Water Studio, you agree to adhere to the following terms:

Permitted Uses

End Products

  • End Products must be significantly different from the original Resource.
  • End Products must be combined with other creative elements to form an Original Design.
  • An Original Design is defined as a design that you have put time, effort, and skill into producing, ensuring that the Resources are not the primary integrity of the Design or End Product.
  • End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Resource you purchased.
  • End Products must not redistribute the original Resource to any third party.

Commercial Projects

  • You may use the Resources in multiple commercial Projects.
  • The lifetime sales of the End Products for Sale or offered for free may not exceed 5000 units. If sales exceed 5000 units, you must purchase another Standard License or an Extended License.

Patterns

  • Patterns licensed under the Graphics License may not be used standalone. They may be used as backgrounds, overlays, or to fill specific areas within your Original Design.

End Products for Sale

  • An End Product for Sale can be either a digital design or physical item that you and/or your client intend to sell to more than a single person for any type of fee or charge, ensuring that no third parties can extract the original resource.

Modifications

  • You may modify or manipulate the Resource, or incorporate it into other content to create a derivative work. Tree Water Studio retains all rights, title, and ownership of the original Resource, and the resulting derivative work is subject to this Agreement.

Special Terms for Fonts and Add-ons

Unique Implementation

  • An End Product must be a unique implementation of the Resource. For example, you may purchase a font and use it to make unique word art, but you must not redistribute the original files in any way.
  • Fonts and Add-ons may only be installed on devices used by the Licensee, i.e., the Licensee’s primary and secondary desktop computer and mobile device.

Commercial Projects

  • You may use Fonts and Add-ons in multiple commercial projects and sell unlimited quantities of the End Product.

Restrictions

  • You may not:
  • Sub-license, resell, redistribute, provide access to, share, or transfer any Resources (e.g., as stock, in a tool, app, or template, with source files, and/or not incorporated into an End Product) under any circumstances, not even for free.
  • Upload a Resource to a website at a resolution that exceeds the display resolution of the intended viewing device, as this will be deemed an attempt to redistribute the graphic.
  • Allow anyone other than the Licensee, such as an end user, to customize a digital or physical end product, whether for commercial use or non-commercial use. It is prohibited for any user other than the Licensee to access the assets whereby they can choose items or create their own end result. This includes, but is not limited to, “print on demand,” “made to order,” or “download on demand” applications.
  • Imply or claim that you are the author of the artwork, even if you have made changes.
  • If you use the graphics for editorial purposes (print, web, or TV), you must include the credit adjacent to the product: Melissa Williams and Tree Water Studio, https://treewater.studio.
