General FAQ

Can I use a purchased item in a freelance project or contract work for a client?

Yes, if the client intends to sell more than 600 copies of the End Product that you created, you will need to purchase an Extended License or multiple Standard Licenses. If you create the End Product for a client, your rights to purchased items are transferred from you to your client.

What is Personal Use, Commercial Work, Contracted Work, Client Work, and etc.?

Both the Standard and Extended Licenses allow for Personal Use and Commercial Work of many kinds.

Personal Use:

Personal use allows the use of our products for personal projects. The license for personal use grants you an exclusive and lifetime license to view, download, and copy the templates, subject to the following restrictions:

  • In using the template, you may not charge fees or receive any remuneration from a third-party
  • You are prohibited from reselling, relicensing, sublicensing, renting, leasing, or using the templates in any form of advertising

The rights, titles, and ownership of the templates shall remain exclusively with Template.net and shall not be transferred to you.

Commercial Work:

Commercial work means that the use of the template makes money for the user. The license for commercial use grants you an exclusive, non-transferable, and worldwide license. Unless otherwise provided for in this Agreement, the intellectual property rights of the purchased templates are assigned to you. This is is similar to Contracted Work or Client Work.

How many times can I use a purchased item?

One time, A purchased item may be used in a one-time project. Any End Product included in a one-time project must be directly related under a single concept. For more clients, you will need to purchase an Extended License or multiple Standard Licenses.

What are the End Product for Sale requirements?

End Product for Sale must be significantly different than the original Item and requires time, effort, and skill to produce. End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original item that you purchased. End Products must not redistribute the original Item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original item.

  • An End Product must be a unique implementation of the item purchased, often requiring limited copy and content changes.
  • For example, if you purchase a resume template, you may use the item for yourself or a client after having input personal information (you may not resell it as stock).
  • Another example, if you purchase a template and include it in a design for a single, paid client, this is not considered an End Product for Sale. If you purchase that same template and incorporate it into a design and sell it to multiple people, that is considered an End Product for Sale

Is there any limit to the number of impressions for my End Product?

Yes, there is a limit to the number of impressions for your End Product if you purchase a Standard license. For unlimited impressions buy an Extended License.

Can I redistribute the items that I have purchased?
