TOU information

We have updated our Personal Use TOUs to reflect better our feelings of having fun with our kits! This will replace all PU TOUs in kits you have already purchased:

Copyright ©2011 by ViVa Artistry/Vanessa Gary/Vivienne Oestergaard
All Rights Reserved

This kit is for personal use only.
Do not share or claim any part as your own.
Do not use for any commercial purpose.
Please be sure to credit us when using our work in any publication.

All credits should go to ViVa Artistry.

What you CAN do:

You may use these designs for your small, home-based business of cards, candy wrappers, invitations or similar providing that you are printing the product from your home computer and not to exceed 500 copies.
You may use these designs for Scrap-for-hire or Scrap-for-others; as long as the pages are flattened.
You may use this design for your photography business in  giving your clients finished, flattened memoryboards for your photographs.
You may use these designs in part or in whole in your layouts that will be submitted to scrapbooking and related magazines for publication, giving proper credit to ViVa Artistry and the store from where you purchased it.
You may use these designs for your own scrapbook pages and projects, including hybrid works or paper scrapping.
You may use these designs in layouts that are posted in online galleries and/or submitted to magazines.
You may copy these files to any external hard drives and computers that are owned and used expressly by YOU for digital scrapbooking purposes, this does not include computers that are used by other digital scrappers or people who would use our designs other than your immediate family (spouse or children living in the same household).
You may make DVD or CD backups of these files to store solely for your own use. These backups may not be shared with any other person.
You may use these designs to decorate your blog.

YOU MAY create layouts or other craft items for INDIVIDUAL clients to be delivered to the client in printed or flattened .jpg form without asking permission or purchasing an additional license.
Your custom final product made with these designs can NOT be used/sold by others for any public or private commercials.
For S4H purposes, you will need to purchase one kit for each single project it is used for.

What you CANNOT do:
You may NOT use these designs in any way as part of a freebie or promotion without prior consent.
You may NOT create quickpages to be sold commercially.
You may NOT redistribute these designs in any way other than as part of a finished, commissioned, and flattened image for your S4O/S4H business unless you receive permission.


What about COLLABS:

If these designs are part of a collaboration between our designs and another designer's, please refer to both TOU's. If you have any doubts about the use of these designs, please ask.


The use of the content for any harmful, pornographic, or racial material or material that may
be deemed harmful or offensive to another person is prohibited.

*** If you have any questions, concerns or would like to share your work with us ;)  please contact us at vivaartistry@gmail.com ***

This is in reference to PERSONAL USE TOU for ViVa Artistry and for Yvonne Banham kits. The change is in that you can use our kits to decorate your blog. S4H is still ok as long as you purchase a kit for each project you are working on, it is not necessary to purchase additional licensing.

In reference to COMMERCIAL USE TOU for ViVa Artistry and for Yvonne Banham kits. The change is that you can use for commercial use as in digital scrapbook kits or small home businesses, with no credits necessary. You can also use for blog designs. Again, no credits necessary.

Credit, of course, is always nice, but not necessary. Besides, we know how busy you are and we don't have time ourselves to be policing it!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us, at vivaartistry(at)gmail(dot)com.

We just want to make it simple, easy, and MOST IMPORTANT, fun to play with our kits!
