This is a license agreement between you and THE DYNASMILES by DNT / DNT DYNAMITE DESIGN, LLC. By downloading clipart from any of our store fronts, you accept the terms of this agreement.
What licenses are available for downloading your clipart?
THE DYNASMILES offers two types of licenses: standard and extended.
Every file downloaded from THE DYNASMILES comes with a standard license also known as a personal use license.
An extended license gives you well defined commercial rights in exchange for an additional license fee. Unless you purchase an extended license, your use of clipart is subject to the standard license terms.
How can I use your standard use licensed clipart?
You may use our clipart in any way that is not restricted (see Restricted Uses below). Subject to those restrictions and the rest of the terms of this agreement, the rights granted to you by THE DYNASMILES (DNT DYNAMITE DESIGN, LLC) are:
Perpetual, meaning there is no expiration or end date on your standard rights to use the clipart. The only exception to perpetual rights is for clipart downloaded on a subscription and not used within 30 days after the end of your subscription.
Non-exclusive, meaning that you do not have exclusive rights to use the clipart. THE DYNASMILES (DNT DYNAMITE DESIGN, LLC) can license the same clipart to other customers.
For purposes of this agreement, "use" means to copy, reproduce, modify, edit, synchronize, perform, display, broadcast, publish, or otherwise make use of.
STANDARD USE LICENSE ALLOWANCES (Ideal for Personal Projects):

You MAY use our graphics to create digital printable files for personal use only. Example: Your daughter's birthday party invitation.

You may not use clipart to sway public opinion in any form.
No Standalone File Use.

No Use in Trademark or Logo.
You may not use clipart as part of your business branding (trademark, design mark, trade name, business name, service mark, or logo) because you do not own the artwork.
No Subscription Abuse.
You may not stockpile, download or otherwise store clipart not used in a project or end use within 30 days after the end of your subscription for future use.
No False Representation of Authorship.
You may not falsely represent that you are the original creator of a work that is made up largely of licensed clipart. For instance, you cannot create a painting based solely on licensed clipart and claim that you are the author.
You may not sublicense, resell, share, transfer, or otherwise redistribute the content (e.g., as stock, in a tool or template, as source files, etc.), not even for free.
No Products for Resale.
Unless you purchase an extended license, you may not use clipart in connection with any goods or services intended for resale or distribution where the primary value lies in the clipart itself including, without limitation, cards, stationery items, paper products, calendars, apparel items, posters (printed on paper, canvas, or any other media), DVDs, mobile applications or other items for resale, license or other distribution for profit. This includes "on demand" products (meaning products in which clipart is selected by a third party for customization on such product on a made-to-order basis), including, without limitation, postcards, mugs, t-shirts, posters and other items (this includes the sale of products through custom designed websites, as well as sites such as zazzle.com and cafepress.com). You must purchase an extended license to be able to use our clipart on products for resale.

Unless you purchase an extended license, you may not use clipart in electronic or digital templates intended for resale or other distribution (for example, website templates, business card templates, electronic greeting card templates, brochure design templates).
Intellectual Property Rights
Who owns the clipart?
All of the licensed clipart is owned by DNT Dynamite Design, LLC. All rights not expressly granted in this agreement are reserved to DNT Dynamite Design, LLC.
Except in the case of subscriptions, this agreement is effective until it is terminated by either party.

Unless renewed, subscription agreements terminate automatically at the end of the subscription period, with a 30 day grace period to use any clipart downloaded during the subscription term in a project or other end use. Clipart incorporated into projects or end uses prior to the expiration of the grace period may continue to be used in perpetuity in that project and in any other projects.
