1. Definitions

“End Product” means the Final Work that Seller delivers to Buyer as a result of Buyer purchasing the Seller’s Service offered in the Listing.

“End User” means the natural human person who actually uses Seller’s deliverable, Final Work paid for by Buyer.

“Non-Commercial Use” is use for solely personal purposes by a natural person (a real human being not a legal entity)—includes uses in artistic, educational, scholarly, and personal projects that will not be marketed, promoted, or sold.

“Commercial Use” is use in any reproduction or purpose that is marketed, promoted, or sold and incorporates a financial transaction. This includes any use by a business or company for private or commercial applications.

  • If the End Product contains an image of a natural person, even if the End Product is model-released, Buyer 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;
