You may not use the Content for commercial purposes nor in any way that is restricted (see License Restrictions below).

For clarity,
“Non-exclusive” means that you do not have exclusive rights to use the Content. FX Elements can license the same Content to other customers.

“Worldwide” means that the Content can be used in any geographic territory.
“Permitted Derivative Work” means that in order to use the Content, you must fundamentally modify or sufficiently transform it so that it constitutes an original work where the primary value of such transformed or derivative work is not attributable to the Content nor is the Content capable of being downloaded, extracted or accessed by a third party as a stand-alone file.

“Educational purposes” means that the Content is to be used for the educational instruction and/or training of your students.

c. All other rights in and to the Content, including, without limitation, all copyright and other intellectual property rights relating to the Content and all the information included in the Website and the services offered therein, are retained by FX Elements.

d. The Content is licensed, not sold. You hereby declare and confirm that you do not and will not have any ownership and/or intellectual property rights in the Content of the Website and/or the Website’s trademarks or its design or the information contained in it, and that your right is restricted to the limited rights under the License granted in the Agreement herein. You agree not to assert against FX Elements any claim, action or proceeding for infringement of any intellectual property rights.

f. Subcontractors. You may allow subcontractors (for example, your printer) or distributors to use the Content in any production or distribution process related to your Permitted Derivative Work. These subcontractors and distributors may not use the Content for any other purpose. You are directly and primarily responsible for the acts and omissions of such subcontractors and affiliates under this Agreement and applicable laws as your own acts and omissions. 

g. Unauthorized Use. Any use of the Content by you and/or by anyone on your behalf in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, entitling FX Elements to exercise all rights and remedies available to it under copyright laws around the world. You shall be responsible for any damages resulting from any such copyright infringement. To the extent the violation is done by a person other than you but who is under your control, you are additionally required to take any possible action to immediately cease the violation. FX Elements will be entitled, at its exclusive discretion and without any prior notice, to block your access to the Website, temporarily or permanently, in case you violate the law or any of the Website’s terms of use or this Agreement.

The Content is intended solely for use in your Permitted Derivative Works.

a. You may not use the Content for any purpose that is not educational. For example, you may not use the Content in commercial projects that generate profit.

b. No Stand-Alone File Use. You may not license, sell, lease, share, rent, assign, gift or otherwise transfer or provide the Content to third parties on a “stand-alone” basis, i.e., you may not use the Content in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute the Content as a stand-alone file (meaning just the Content file itself, separate from the project or end use). The Content must be embodied within a Permitted Derivative Work created by you and your Permitted Derivative Work must reasonably add value beyond the value of the Content.
c. No Content Creation Software. You may not bundle, incorporate, or distribute the Content in or with any digital content creation software (including, without limitation, tools for the creation of user generated content) that is monetized or used to generate revenue, directly or indirectly, by you or any third party; you may not permit third parties to use or access the Content to modify or extend your Permitted Derivative Work (including, without limitation, via digital content creation software) if such use or access is monetized or used to generate revenue, directly or indirectly, by you or any third party.

d. You may not fail to maintain a robust firewall, to safeguard against unauthorized third-party access to the Content and to hold your password for your account in the strictest of confidence.

g. No inclusion in a library. You may not make available the Content and any Permitted Derivative Work thereof as stock elements or effects imagery elements or be included in any clip media/stock product, library, collection, database, or set of clips for distribution or resale. For example and not by way of limitation, you can not display the Content as, or as part of, a "gallery" of content through which third parties may search and select from such content. These Restrictions apply even if the Content has been significantly altered. Making modifications or alterations to any of the Content does not allow you to then sell, license or distribute it to anyone else.

h. No Electronic Templates. You may not use the Content in electronic or digital templates intended for resale or other distribution (for example, website templates, electronic greeting card templates, etc.).

i. No products for resale. You may not use or display the Content on websites or other venues designed to induce or involving the sale, license or other distribution of “on demand”, “made to order” or “build it yourself” services or products; you may not use the Content in any posters or other items for resale, license or other distribution for profit.

j. No Use in Trademark or Logo. You may not use the Content (in whole or in part) as the distinctive or distinguishing feature of a trademark, design mark, trade name, business name, service mark, or logo. Additionally, you shall not be entitled to register (in any jurisdiction) such Content (in whole or in part) as a trademark or rely on any such registrations, prior use, and/or accrued goodwill to prevent any third party use of the Content or any similar Content (including by us or our customers).
k. No Unlawful Use. You may not use the Content in a pornographic, defamatory or other unlawful manner, or in violation of any applicable regulations or industry codes. You may not use the Content in connection with any media project that could be considered libelous, obscene, insulting, racist, or immoral; FX Elements reserves its full right to determine at its discretion whether a use of the Content constitutes a violation of this article and you hereby accept FX Elements’ right to do so.

n. No mass downloading. You may not mass download and/or use the Content. You may not use bots, software, automated programs, applets or any other technical mean to download the Content and you may not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on FX Elements’ systems or servers.

o. You may not use any means that might damage, block, overload or harm the Website, the communication networks and any communication equipment, or interrupt any other user’s use of the Website. You may not attempt to obtain unauthorized access to the Website, the Content, other user’s accounts or computer systems or to networks connected to the Website by any means whatsoever.

p. No False Representation of Authorship. You may not falsely represent, expressly or by way of reasonable implication, that any Content was created by you or a person other than the copyright holder(s) of that Content and/or falsely represent, expressly or impliedly, that you are the original creator of a Permitted Derivative Work that derives a substantial part of its artistic components from the Content.

q. No unfair competition. You may not use the Content in any manner which violates the rights of a third party, including without limitation intellectual property of FX Elements or would give rise to a claim of deceptive advertising or unfair competition.

6. Payment
a. Content will not be considered licensed to you until credit charges and terms have been approved. You shall have no obligation to use the Content; however, payment is still required for any Content whether or not used.

b. You agree to fully pay any and all fees for the Content Licenses you ordered from FX Elements with any form of payment method accepted by FX Elements. You are responsible for providing FX Elements with valid credit card information to secure payments. FX Elements reserves the right to cancel any License you ordered and/or deactivate your subscription without prior notice if FX Elements is unable to process payment through the credit card provided by you. Payments may be processed in cooperation with third party payment service providers.

c. You authorize FX Elements or its partners to charge your credit card, or use other forms of payment methods accepted by FX Elements, for the fees in accordance with the payment terms. FX Elements and its partners reserve the right to change the fees, the payment terms, or any availability of the Content at any time without notice; provided, however, such changes will not affect the fees paid and payment terms for any products and services already purchased and paid for in full. You are responsible for reviewing the Agreement or the Website for any changes in the fees or payment terms. If a change is unacceptable to you, you may, as your sole and exclusive remedy, terminate and close your account as described in the termination section.

d. Subscription payment. You authorize FX Elements to charge you all subscription fees for the duration of the term agreed to at the time of purchase.  If your subscription is set to AUTOMATICALLY RENEW (“Auto-renew”), you authorize FX Elements to charge the applicable subscription fees at the then applicable rate and taxes for the subscription to your credit card on file at the expiration of the term. The monthly subscription is valid for one month and is automatically renewed every month unless you decide to cancel. The yearly subscription is valid for one year and is automatically renewed every year unless you decide to cancel. Responsibility for cancelling the subscription is yours and you are required to take the necessary actions in order to cancel your automatic-recurring subscription payment in your account. You can disable automatic renewal at any time prior to renewal using your account settings.

e. FX Elements may offer premium services, either for one-time fees or for recurring fees. You are informed of the fees, charges and payment terms during the registration or purchase process. FX Elements and partners may amend the fees and payment terms at any time. All fees are in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise specified.

f. Coupon codes. Any coupon or discount code applied to a purchase hereunder shall apply only to the first payment made in connection with such purchase, unless otherwise specified in the coupon.

g. Refunds. Please note that once you have ordered the Content, paid for it and downloaded it, you have started consuming the Content, and you cannot disclaim the ordered Content or demand return payment. Since the Content is sold as digital files, it is not refundable nor exchangeable; FX Elements does not offer refunds for downloaded files. File returns will only be considered based on technical issues with the file at the sole discretion of FX Elements.

h. Subscription refunds. You are entitled to cancel the subscription within 14 days from the date of its purchase and/or renewal and get a refund, provided that you have not yet downloaded or licensed any Content unless this Content is labeled “free” and belongs to the Free Clips section of the Website. Except when required by law, FX Elements shall be under no obligation to issue refunds under any circumstances except as stated above. By the end of 14 days from the purchase and/or renewal of the subscription, all fees become non-refundable, even if your subscription is terminated before its expiration. In the event that FX Elements determines that you are entitled to a refund of all or part of the fees you paid, such refund shall be made using the payment method originally used by you to make your purchase.

i. All requests for refunds/cancellations must be made in writing. If the request is approved, FX Elements will issue a credit to your account or credit card. In the event of cancellation, your rights to use the Content terminate, and you must delete or destroy any copies of the Content.

j. Files can be replaced if damaged or lost, within one year after purchase. Simply send us an email at support@fxelements.com.

k. Taxes. You agree to pay and be responsible for any and all sales taxes, use taxes, value added taxes and duties imposed by any jurisdiction (including those taxes and tariffs FX Elements or its partners are not required to collect) as a result of the license granted to you, or of your use of the licensed Content. Where FX Elements or you are required to collect or remit direct or indirect taxes, you may be required to self-assess said tax under the applicable laws of your country of residence.

l. You are also responsible for all hardware, software, Internet service costs and other costs you incur to access the Content.

7. Termination
Any termination will not affect your obligations to FX Elements (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights and ownership, indemnification, and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such termination.

a. Termination. Except in the case of subscriptions, this Agreement is effective until it is terminated by either party. Upon the termination of this Agreement, the rights granted to you under this Agreement shall immediately terminate, unless otherwise mutually agreed-upon by the Parties in writing. You can terminate your License at any time by contacting us at support@fxelements.com, ceasing use of the Content and deleting or destroying any copies.

b. Subscription termination. Unless renewed, subscription Agreements terminate automatically at the end of the subscription period. If your subscription expires or if we terminate your right to use the Content due to your breach of the Agreement and/or your abuse of your subscription account, you must immediately cease all use of the Content, delete or destroy any copies of it and confirm to FX Elements in writing that you have complied with these requirements.

c. Termination for breach. The Agreement terminates without notice from FX Elements if at any time you fail to comply with any of its terms or if you fail to make any payment due under this Agreement. Termination of the Agreement will result in your account being deactivated and your License being terminated. Upon termination of this Agreement, you must immediately (i) cease using the Content for any purpose; (ii) destroy or delete all copies and archives of the Content and accompanying materials; and (iii) confirm to FX Elements in writing that you have complied with these requirements. FX Elements shall be under no obligation to refund any fees paid by you in the event that your account is terminated by reason of a breach.

Upon notice from FX Elements, or upon your knowledge, that any Content may be subject to a claim of infringement of a third party's right for which FX Elements may be liable, FX Elements may require you to immediately, and at your own expense: cease using the content, delete or destroy any copies; and ensure that your clients, distributors and/or employer do likewise. FX Elements will provide you with replacement content (determined by FX Elements in its reasonable commercial judgment) free of charge, subject to the other terms of this Agreement.

8. Representations and Warranties
a. FX Elements warrants that it has all necessary rights and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement;

c. While we have made reasonable efforts to correctly categorize, keyword, caption and title the Content, FX Elements does not warrant the accuracy of such information. Additionally, FX Elements does not warrant the accuracy of any metadata that may be provided with the Content. FX ELEMENTS MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO THE COMPLETENESS OR ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE WEBSITE AND THE CONTENT. THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE WEBSITE AND THE CONTENT MAY BE INCOMPLETE, MAY CONTAIN ERRORS, OR BECOME OUT OF DATE AT ANY TIME.

d. FX Elements may provide you with an alpha channel or a grayscale alpha matte file made from the Content. This alpha channel or alpha matte is only provided as a courtesy, without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied. FX Elements encourages you to make your own “alpha” from the Content.

e. You should examine all Content for possible defects (whether digital or otherwise) before sending any Content for Reproduction. FX Elements shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you or any third party, whether directly or indirectly, arising from any alleged or actual defect in any Content or its caption or in any way from its Reproduction.

f. FX Elements does not represent or warrant that the Website will be available at all times or that it will function in a manner or as fast or efficient as you may expect or desire. You acknowledge that websites and products may be subject to temporary shutdowns from time to time for maintenance or due to causes beyond reasonable control and that FX Elements shall not have any liability to you by reason of such shutdowns. Under no circumstances shall FX Elements be liable for any damages whatsoever resulting from your use or inability to use the Website and/or Content, due to, but not limited to, mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or electronic mail, errors, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction, or unauthorized access thereto.

g. FX Elements reserves the right to add, modify, or delete content at any time. FX Elements makes no representations or warranties that all Content will be available at all times. FX Elements may discontinue licensing certain Content at its sole discretion. FX Elements will bear no liability in case any Content is not available on the Website, for any reason whatsoever.

OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN SECTION 8(b), THE CONTENT IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FX ELEMENTS DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT ITS USE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. FX ELEMENTS SHALL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO CORRECT ERRORS IN, PROVIDE UPDATES FOR, OR OTHERWISE SUPPORT THE CONTENT. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE CONTENT IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE CONTENT PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU (AND NOT FX ELEMENTS) ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK AND COST OF ALL NECESSARY CORRECTIONS.

j. Certain jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. You have specific rights under this warranty, but you may have others, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

9. Indemnification and Limitation of Liability
a. Indemnification of you by FX Elements. Provided that the Content is only used in accordance with this Agreement and you are not otherwise in breach of this Agreement, and as your sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of the warranties set forth in Section 8(b) above, FX Elements agrees, subject to the terms of this Section 9, to defend, indemnify and hold harmless you, your corporate parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of your respective officers, directors and employees from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable legal costs including attorney fees) arising out of or in connection with any breach or alleged breach by FX Elements of its warranty in Section 8(b) above. This indemnification does not apply to the extent any damages, costs or losses arise out of or are a result of modifications made by you to the Content or the context in which the Content is used by you. This indemnification also does not apply to your continued use of the Content following notice from FX Elements, or upon your knowledge, that the Content is subject to a claim of infringement of a third party's right. The foregoing states FX Elements’s entire indemnification obligation under this Agreement.

b. Indemnification of FX Elements by you. You assume full responsibility for the use of the Content. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless FX Elements, its affiliates and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, shareholders, partners and agents (collectively, the “FX Elements Parties”) from any and all claims, actions, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal costs including attorney fees) arising out of or in connection with your use or misuse of the Content and/or any breach or alleged breach by you (or anyone acting on your behalf) of any of the terms of this Agreement.

c. The party seeking indemnification must promptly notify in writing the other party about the claim. The indemnifying party (the one covering the costs) has the right to assume the handling, settlement or defense of any claim or litigation, in which case the indemnified party (the one not covering the costs) has to cooperate in any way reasonably requested by the indemnifying party. The indemnifying party will not be liable for legal costs including attorney fees and other costs incurred prior to the other party giving notice of the claim for which indemnity is sought.
d. IN NO EVENT SHALL FX ELEMENTS OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES OR THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, SHAREHOLDERS, PARTNERS OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY GENERAL, INCIDENTAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIM, LOSS, DAMAGE, ACTION, SUIT OR OTHER PROCEEDING ARISING UNDER OR OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION YOUR USE OF, RELIANCE UPON, ACCESS TO, OR EXPLOITATION OF THE CONTENT, OR ANY PART THEREOF, OR RELATED DOCUMENTATION OR ANY RIGHTS GRANTED TO YOU HEREUNDER, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER THE ACTION IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHERWISE AND EVEN IF ANY EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVIDED FOR IN THIS AGREEMENT FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. NO ACTION, REGARDLESS OF FORM OR NATURE, ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE BROUGHT BY OR ON BEHALF OF YOU MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION FIRST AROSE.

e. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER TERM HEREIN, FX ELEMENTS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, COSTS OR LOSSES ARISING AS A RESULT OF MODIFICATIONS MADE TO THE CONTENT BY YOU OR THE CONTEXT IN WHICH THE CONTENT IS USED BY YOU. FX ELEMENTS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE FAILED TO COMPLY WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

f. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE TOTAL MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF FX ELEMENTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY OTHER AGREEMENT UNDER WHICH YOU HAVE LICENSED THE SAME CONTENT, REGARDLESS OF THE FILE SIZE, OR THE USE OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY OR ALL OF THE CONTENT IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER AND THE OBLIGATION OF FX ELEMENTS UNDER SECTION 9(a) SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR LICENSING THE CONTENT. For greater clarity, in no event, will FX Elements' total aggregate liability to you or any third party claiming through you, arising out of or in connection with your use of or inability to use the FX Elements Website and/or Content contained thereon (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) exceed the monetary amount actually received by FX Elements from you for the applicable Content License.

g. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

10. General Provisions
a. You specifically agree and acknowledge that you have, in addition to the terms of this Agreement, reviewed the Terms of Use and any other agreements which may be incorporated by reference therein, and to the extent of their incorporation in this Agreement, you agree to be bound by them.

c. This Agreement shall be to the benefit of and bind the respective heirs, executors, administrators and assigns of the Parties hereto.

d. Waiver. A provision of this Agreement may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of this Agreement shall in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of this Agreement.

e. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions which shall continue in full force and effect.

f. No Partnership. This Agreement does not constitute and shall not be construed as constituting a partnership or joint venture between FX Elements and you. Neither party hereto shall have any right to obligate or bind the other party in any manner whatsoever, and nothing herein contained shall give, or is intended to give, any rights of any kind to any third persons.

k. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Oklahoma, U.S.A., without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Any disputes arising from or related to this Agreement shall be settled by binding individual (not class) confidential arbitration by a single arbitrator selected using the rules and procedures for arbitrator selection under the JAMS' Expedited Procedures in its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS") if you are in North America, or of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") or JAMS if you are outside of North America, in effect on the date of the commencement of arbitration. The place of arbitration shall be the state and county of Oklahoma. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English and all documentation shall be presented and filed in English. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered on the arbitration award and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this Agreement. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable legal costs including attorney fees relating to that aspect of its claim or defense on which it prevails, and any opposing costs awards shall be offset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, FX Elements shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against you in the event that, in the opinion of FX Elements, such action is necessary or desirable to protect its intellectual property rights. The parties agree that, notwithstanding any otherwise applicable statute(s) of limitation, any arbitration proceeding shall be commenced within one (1) year of the acts, events or occurrences giving rise to the claim. Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter will not apply to this Agreement.

l. YOU AND FX ELEMENTS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and FX Elements agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
