1. FOR ALL PRODUCTS:
Give Credit: You MUST give credit by linking to my site (www.whimsydoodlegraphics.com ) and the original artist in each product description or product. You'll find the artist information along with a link to their site in each of my descriptions so you can easily link to their site.
Sharing / Freebies: You may NOT design anything to share or give away in online or offline groups / forums. The ONLY exception is you may give away an occasional product you've designed on your own website or blog for the purpose of a business sample or promotion. It goes without saying that you must also NEVER SHARE with anyone any purchases you make from Whimsy Doodle Graphics as this is illegal.
Exclusive - You will only find that product here at Whimsy Doodle Graphics.
Non-Exclusive - There are other sites that may carry the exact same product.
Clip Art - Is always colored in.
Digi Stamps - Are outlines / black and white images without color.
Refunds: Due to the nature of this business (downloads), we do not offer refunds.
Download Expiration: All Downloads expire in 14 days. Make sure you download and back up your files to a CD/DVD.
2. CLIP ART (All Artists - be sure to review the exceptions for *Cheryl Seslar and **Digi My World below):
You must design something new that you sell as a digital or tangible / handcrafted item or use for yourself (personal use).
Include clip art "as is" as you must design / incorporate the clip art into your own project / design, whether it's for web use or digital items.
Change colors or colorize the clip art.
Design line art / outlines / digi stamps with the clip art.
Design sticker packs, although you can design stickers that you include in a scrap kit you've designed.
Design scrap kits with my clip art / card making kits as the papers are meant to be used for printables and other non-scrap related products such as cards, tags, wrappers etc.
3. FREEBIES: You cannot sell or share the actual images/sets you save/download from my store.
4. YOU MAY use the free clipart or pattern I post on my free clipart image or free pattern page to create things and share what you make (ONLY exception).
Please be sure to read all information below. There is also information on Embroidery Use and other uses in the FAQ so please read everything.
5. CARD MAKING KITS:
You can design printables (cards, wrappers, boxes etc.) that you sell as a digital or tangible / handcrafted item or use for yourself (personal use).
6. CUTTING FILES:
Not all Artists allow you to make cutting files. Whimsy Doodle Graphics does allow you to design printables (cards, wrappers, boxes etc.) that you sell as a digital or tangible / handcrafted item or use for yourself (personal use).
7. DIGI SCRAPPING / S4H/S4O SCRAP GRAPHICS / CARD MAKING KITS:
You can use my scrap kits and paper packs to design layouts (for yourself or for a client), websets (for yourself or for a client), or printables (these are super for making printable cards). You cannot resell any of these items “as is” (include them in your own design).
8. DIGI STAMPS / LINE ART / OUTLINES / PATTERNS (All Artists - be sure to review the exceptions for *Cheryl Seslar and **Digi My World below):
You must color in the digi stamps and then design something new that you sell as a digital or tangible / handcrafted item or use for yourself (personal use). The actual digi stamp that you've colored in must be merged / flattened (attached) to a printable, background, tag, sticker or frame etc. You can color them in and design and sell digitized embroidery patterns. Teachers, you are allowed to design and print your own classroom materials with these outlines (even uncolored). You may also color them in and sell classroom materials as long as they are incorporated into a new design as specified above.
Color them in as clip art to sell.
Sell them or include them in any project "as is" (as outlines) and also after coloring them in. You must design something NEW with them such as the ideas listed above.
9. IPHONE / IPOD TOUCH WALLPAPERS:
You can use these for your own electronics or for family members. You cannot design anything new with these.
10. PRINTABLE PAPER CRAFTS (All Artists - be sure to review exceptions for *Cheryl Seslar, **Nitwit Collections and ***Kay Miller below):
You must design something new or decorate products you sell as a tangible / handcrafted product or use them for yourself (personal use).
November 30, 2010 Update: Cheryl has approved all her clip art that I sell here on Whimsy Doodle Graphics (www.whimsydoodlegraphics.com) for limited CU4CU USE. You are allowed to design a new digital product that you can sell on your own website, eBay and Etsy (for any other site you will need to contact Cheryl for appropriate licensing) - and your customers can purchase it and design something new (personalize it) and sell it as long as they would sell it as a NON-digital item. So it would need to be a tangible, handcrafted item (they can be sold on a website as long as it's not a digital item).
** Digi My World - All the terms above apply but you are not allowed to sell or design on any print on demand sites such as: Cafe Press or Zazzle. Also, no more than 50% of a scrap kit you design can include Digi My World products. Digi My World does not allow her clip art to be used for stickers (due to white background), Smart Boards (teachers you may design other classroom materials), SVG and cutting files.
*** Kay Miller - All cards are meant to be used for yourself (personal use). Of course you can send them to family and friends etc. You just cannot design with these or sell items you've designed etc.
11. WEBSITE GRAPHICS:
You can use the backgrounds or DIY websets to decorate one website - either personal or commercial.
YOU MAY NEVER USE THEM FOR:
No vulgar, sexist, racist, hate, porn, child porn or anything else in between and not listed can be made from ANYTHING we sell.
ANYONE with any of those intentions now or ever....ARE NOT allowed to purchase from us. EVER. Even if you do not have intents at the time of purchase, but decide you do after you purchase....YOU STILL CANNOT USE ANYTHING WE SELL! We do not allow refunds of any kind for any reason. If it could be even POSSIBLY misinterpreted as what we outlined above, YOU CANNOT USE ANYTHING WE SELL OR BUY FROM US!
