Permitted use – What you can do with the Works

  1. Please exercise common sense. If you wish to share the Works with anyone else because you believe it may be of use to them, we request that you send them a link to the relevant Work.
  2. You may use or make amendments to the Works and use the amended Works as follows:
  • You can store a copy of the Work and or backups of the Work on any one or more of your own devices. You must delete the Work from your device before giving away or selling or otherwise disposing of that device.
  • You can print copies of the Work for your own purpose, but not for distribution to others for commercial purposes. You may create a digital library, network configuration or similar arrangement to allow the Work to be viewed by your employees or clients.

For example: You can print off sufficient copies of the Event Disclaimer and Release for distribution and completion by attendees at your event/s but not for the purpose of providing to attendees as an example of that type of Work, or for any other purpose.

  • The Free Terms and Conditions and Privacy plugin for WordPress can be used on as many websites as you have registered in the name of the person or entity that downloaded the plugin, whether that is 1 or 1000 websites.
  • Contracts and agreements may be used for your own business and commercial purposes, as many times as necessary for your business;

For example: You can download the Service Agreement to create your standard conditions of service for your business, then use that document every time you sign up a new client, without restriction.

  • If you have downloaded or copied the Work for a business purpose, and you sell the business, the Work may be transferred with the business without the need to obtain a further licence.
  •  All products may be used for your own personal use;

For example: If you want to share your idea without having it stolen, you can use the Non-circumvention agreement over and over again.

  • For products that are designed to be displayed on websites or blogs (ie. terms and conditions, privacy policy and disclaimers), to display them on one website or blog (subdomains are considered part of the main website);

For example: The Website Legal Stater pack contains a bundle of different documents you can upload to your website. Each different website should have its own download of this product in order to display that material.

  • Use for your clients is limited to one use per client and a record of the download must be kept with the work completed for that client. Your client will then possess all the rights, restrictions and obligations under this licence agreement in relation to the Work, but without the right to further allow any additional client of its own to so use the Work. Both you and your client will remain jointly and severally liable for any act or omission committed by either of your or the client in connection with this licence agreement.

For example: If you are a web-developer adding value for your clients by including terms and conditions, privacy and disclaimers on their website, you must download one copy for each different website you create. You can join our affiliate program and generate revenue this way as well.

  • You can send electronic or hard copies of the Works to others, whether employees, contractors, clients or others, for your own business purpose and in the normal course of work. Anyone you send it to is required to abide by the restrictions of this licence agreement.
