For every image you download, we grant you a commercial license for a single user which is non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable. It applies throughout the world and is subject to the standards and restrictions set out below.
If you have a Free Membership Plan you are required to attribute every time you use or display the image. If you have a Premium Membership Plan no attribution is required.

With our Commercial License you can use our images for any business purpose as long as you are not selling or redistributing our images and your use complies with our Standards (see section 5 below) and other restrictions below.
For example, you can:
  • put the images on your business websites and use them in your business blogs, social media and adverts. We allow unlimited web views.

What you cannot do

    We do allow you to create individual items on behalf of a client, but you must only share your final item with your client, not our standalone image files. If your client requires our image file for future projects they must have their own membership account or be included as an additional seat/user on your membership plan.
