USER LICENSES

We have a few license types for our visuals. The license type you select will depend on what you want the visuals for. If you plan to use the visual for non-commercial purposes (i.e. not primarily intended to generate revenue), then you will use one of the non-commercial license types. If you plan to use the visual for commercial purposes (i.e. generating revenue, such as fundraising activities), then you will use one of the commercial license types.

Some of our visuals have unique restrictions on them. You will notice that these visuals have a “Special” license type which will tell you how you are allowed (and not allowed) to use them.
