Garden of designs Terms of Use Last update October 10 2019

LICENSE AND USE OF OUR MACHINE EMBROIDERY DESIGNS

You must have an embroidery machine in order to use these designs. These are digital files and not a finished product.

Our designs may NOT be purchased and brought to someone else to put on a product. They are licensed ONLY to the purchaser of the designs. If you would like something stitched onto a product, please have the person doing the embroidery purchase the files. Our designs come in the following formats only:  DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PCS, PES, VIP, VP3 and XXX. We do NOT provide any other design formats.We will not forward purchased designs to any email address other than the one used to purchase the designs.

DESIGN SHARING POLICIES

Our digitized embroidery designs, either purchased or free designs that are downloaded, MAY NOT be sold, traded, shared, given away, or included in any design set.  This includes purchasing with the intent to copy and share with your family or friends.  You may not use ANY portion of our design or our exclusive artwork as a basis to create a new design and call it your own. Many hours have gone into these patterns to bring you unique, high-quality designs at affordable prices. Please respect our work.Please note that we will not respond to emails with order issues in which two parties split the purchase with the intent of sharing designs.

We reserve the right to immediately and without notice terminate repeat and future downloading abilities to any account holder who is known to be sharing designs. ALL design downloads will be terminated. Our designs are available for instant download upon purchase. We are not required to provide indefinite and unlimited downloads. We do so for convenience. Therefore, those violating our terms of use will lose those abilities.You may not alter designs and call them your own or sell the altered designs. You may, of course, edit the designs for your own personal use.By purchasing our designs, you are purchasing a license to use them. Only the actual purchaser of the designs holds this license. This license is NON transferable. You may not at any time, pass the files to anyone else for any reason without express written permission from us. The designs and all copyrights therein belong to Garden of designs (SC LIBELULLE SMART ART SRL). and are protected under international copyright laws.

 

USING OUR DESIGNS ON ITEMS FOR SALE

Our designs MAY be stitched on items to be sold as long as they are not mass-produced (i.e., hiring someone else to sew the designs or sewing them on a production line). As long as only the individual purchaser sews the designs, there is no limit to the amount of times you may stitch them on items for sale. Designs used on items for sale must be purchased.

FREEBIES: You may NOT use our free designs on items for sale. You must purchase the designs if you are going to make a profit.We encourage the use of our designs to be stitched on items you sell! While you may stitch the designs on items to be sold, including iron-on applique patches, you may not claim to be the creator/designer of the designs themselves. Kindly credit “Garden of designs” by stating “Embroidery designs purchased from Garden of designs” and kindly link Garden of designs to our website www.gardenofdesigns.com.  In the event of a joint business where there are two or more embroiderers, a license MUST be purchased for each person. Again, our designs are licensed ONLY to ONE individual. Each embroiderer must purchase their own copy. In the event of a business partnership, each individual must have purchased their own copies. This is no different than other commercial use terms such as “2 user license” “3 user license” etc. Thank you for complying with our terms.
