By accepting this Agreement, aXYZ design grants the Licensee the following rights and uses:
3.1 A non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use the Stock Media for the creation of Images: Rendering still images and animations for commercial and non-commercial purposes, e.g. for video production, broadcasting, print, movies, advertising, game intros, illustrations, presentations.

Companies or organizations that consist of multiple, physically separate offices/locations must purchase at least one (1) license per location where the Stock Media is to be used.
3.4 A third party under the contract of the Licensee may make temporary copies of the Stock Media for the sole purpose outputting a job (including network rendering and printing) provided by the Licensee. The Stock Media may be retained by the third party only for the period of time required to complete the contracted job and may not be used for any other job or purpose.
3.5 The creation of one copy of the Stock Media for backup or archival purposes.
The specified restrictions include, but are not limited to the following:
4.1 You may not sell, rent, loan, sublicense or otherwise transfer to anyone the Stock Media, or right to use the Stock Media (except insofar as stated above), and nothing you produce shall grant or purport to grant to any third party a right to use or duplicate the Stock Media.
4.2 You may not publish or distribute the Images created with the Stock Media through another stock media clearinghouse infrastructure, for example as part of an online marketplace for photography, clip art, or design templates.
4.3 Use of the Stock Media or any part thereof, as a trademark, service mark or business logo is not permitted.
4.4 Pornographic, defamatory or libellous use or use that is otherwise unlawful is prohibited. If the Stock Media featuring a person is used in a manner that implies endorsement, use of, or a connection to a product or service by that model, or a potentially unflattering or controversial subject, you must print a statement that indicates that the person is a model and is used for illustrative purposes only.
4.5 No Stock Media may be used, or in any derivative work may be used, where value is the Stock Media itself.
4.6 You may not use the Stock Media in a way that competes with aXYZ design Site or Stock Media products themselves.
4.7 You may not misrepresent yourself as the creator of Stock Media products.
4.8 No Stock Media may be sublicensed, resold or be redistributed in their original form or a form created solely to facilitate redistribution. For example only, and in no way limiting the foregoing, you may not place the Stock Media on an electronic bulletin board, within your software, web site or a form of on-line service.
4.9 No Stock Media may be redistributed or resold, or modified versions of the Stock Media including, but not restricted to, portions of the Stock Media, as another graphics library or as another type of product which is similar to, or competes with, the Stock Media products.
4.10 You must take all reasonable and industry standard measures to prevent other parties from gaining access to Stock Media products. Stock Media products must be contained in proprietary formats so that they cannot be opened or imported in a publicly available software application or framework, or extracted without reverse engineering. You may NOT publish or distribute Stock Media Products in any open format, or format encrypted with decryptable open standards (such as WebGL or an encrypted compression archive).
4.11 You may NOT include Stock Media products in Creations that have the general functionality for importing and/or exporting Stock Media Products. An example of such a prohibited use is to include Stock Media products as a starter library within a Creation that allows users to generally work with 3D models, even if the Stock Media product itself is somehow protected and is not capable of being exported. Instead, the users of such a software application may purchase Stock Media products directly from aXYZ design Online Store.
4.12 You may NOT import, upload, reproduce, make available, publish, transmit, distribute, or sublicense Stock Media products in Creations of virtual goods or worlds for any 3D community (“Virtual World”), unless you or your Client owns the Virtual World platform and it complies with the foregoing restrictions.
All other rights with respect to aXYZ design Stock Media not granted in this END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT are reserved to aXYZ design, who are the sole and exclusive copyright holders and no others.
