Uploading such material that infringes on any rights is in violation of these terms and, where appropriate, will result in the Contributing uploaders account being suspended or terminated.

    Caviarts soundly concludes that Materials upladed by a Contributor, belong to that contrubtor and he or she holds all exclusive rights to their uploaded Material(s), unless the Material(s) indicate discernable contradictions.

    Our terms apply equally to personal, corporate, educational and charitable use. Images can be used subject to the terms of the appropriate license set out below and subject to the relevant law of the state in which the image is used worldwide, in perpetuity, and with no time limitations.

    We offer two types of licenses for Our images - a Standard License and an Extended License. In most cases the Standard License will be sufficient.

    Royalty-Free License - Concept Summary

    You make a one-time purchase and are free to use the content (image, photo, illustration, etc.) perpetually for personal and/or commercial purposes with minimal restrictions and without having to pay any other royalties.

    Royalty-Free License (RF)

    When you download standard royalty-free materials (images, photos, illustrations, etc), we grant you a life-time, non-transferable, non-exclusive worldwide license to use the contents under the permitted uses, as defined below. All other rights pertaining to the content are retained by CaviArts or the suppliers of the content.

    A Standard royalty free license gives You the right to use the image for Yourself, or on behalf of Your client, but you may not sell the image or to sub-license it to anyone else. Within this category there are two types of licenses: "Free" and "Purchased". A Free image is subject to the Free Images terms set out below which require that You attribute (publish an acknowledgement) to CaviArts.com and the image creator adjacent to where the image is used. See how to give proper attribution when using free images. Purchased images do not have this requirement. Both free and purchased images are subject to the permitted and prohibited usage explained herein. See table below for examples.

    Top ↑

    Permitted & Prohibited (RF) Royalty-Free License Usage

    You may use images under the (RF) standard royalty free license for:

    1. Advertisements and Promotional Projects, including printed materials: posters, presentations, film and video presentations, flyers, commercials, catalogues, brochures, business cards, promotional postcards, promotional greeting cards, etc. (as long as you dont resale or license).
    2. Entertainment: applications such as magazines, books and/or book covers, broadcast and theatrical presentations, newspapers, zines, newsletters, editorials, CD covers, video, etc.
    3. Web, Internet or electronic publications: web pages (images or illustrations on web pages must not have a width of more than 800 pixels, unless it is part of a design)

    5. Any other uses approved by CaviArts herein or in writing.

    Only you may use the content. You may not claim the image as your own and you may not resale, give away, use the content in products for resale, license or sub-license or make the image available in a downloadable format online. You may not distribute the image in any way for reuse. Online or web templates, printed material mainly designed to sell, other "print on demand" services, tshirts, mugs or other items integrating the image, art, or illustration with the intention of selling or giving away for free is considered redistribution if the image is the primary product or if the image is imperative to the item it has been incorporated into, which is not permitted. Images may not be used as a logo, servicemark or trademark, must not defame a person or violate privacy or publicity rights and must not infringe on any person or entities rights.

    If using images for printed materials, the number of copies cannot exceed 500,000. You may modify the images for your projects. purchasing an image/license does not transfer copyright to you.

    Sensitive Subjects

    Any licenses granted by CaviArts do not represent that a particular Image, illustration, etc. is suitable for use with other materials and you are solely responsible for the way you use such Materials, especially regarding sensitive subjects. You may not use Materials (art, images, illustrations, videos, etc.) in a way that is reasonably considered by CaviArts to be (or under applicable law is) pornographic, unscrupulous, offensive, defamatory, infringing or libelous in nature, or that would likely discrace any person or property reflected in the Content. A few examples of prohibited uses include, but not limited to, portraying a model in a way that suggest he or she has a mental illness, disease or in a way that would reasonably project the person reflected in the content in an unflattering manner. Furthermore, religion and sexual orientation is a sensitive subject and you may not portray a model in a way that suggests he or she has a devotion to a particular religion or is sexually oriented in a way that the image concept didn't clearly intend; in cases where the image concept including a model was intented for such purposes, it will be evident based on the the image concept, title and/or keywords pertanining to such images.

    If you have doubts about whether your intended use of content is permitted, please contact us.

    Free Images attribution reguired

    Free image downloads provide (almost) the same usage priviledges as our regular royalty free images, but the following conditions emphatically apply:

    You must attribute caviarts.com and the image Creator(s) on the same page/screen where the image is used. For example, an acceptable credit line would be: Image courtesy of (image creator name) - caviarts.com. See how to give proper attribution when using free images

    If you use more than one image on the same page, each image must be accompanied with the proper attribution. And, it must be clear which credit relates to which image. A "catch all" credit is not acceptable, as the image creator(s) would not get the proper credit that they deserve and that we require.

    You can find the name of the creator for a particular image on the image details page for the particular image in question.

    If you don't want to publish credit to caviarts and the image creator, please purchase the image to avoid this requirement. Purchased images don't require attribution.

    If you are using the image on printed material, the same attribution is required (e,g. Image courtesy of [image creator name] - caviarts.com). Also, free image downloads have a limit of copies you may print; you must not exceed 5,000 copies. If you need to print more copies you must purchase the image(s) under the (RF) regular royalty free license or an (EL) extended royalty free license.

    Downloading an image (whether free or purchased) does not transfer the copyright and You may not claim that the image is Your own.

    Unauthorised use of these images constitutes copyright infringement and shall entitle CaviArts.com and/or its Contributors to exercise all rights and remedies under applicable copyright law, including an injunction preventing further use and monetary damages against all users and beneficiaries of the use of such images. The foregoing is not a limiting statement of CaviArts.com rights or remedies in connection with any unauthorised use.
