Can the clip art be used in school programs, newsletters, posters, signs, yearbooks, etc.?
Absolutely! You can find this in the terms under "Personal Educational Allowed Uses"
Can the clip art be used on websites, school websites, classroom websites, blogs or teacher webpages?
Unfortunately, NO. The clip art can be used as part of a design header or button as long as the image is flattened as part of a design. But the images themselves may not be posted online, on a website/web page, blog, or online at all. Posting the images online individually is not in compliance with the licensing terms and is a copyright violation. The thing is, some people like to steal things, including images. I don't know about you but I don't like thieves, and I'd like to be able to eat, so please don't post images online; it affects my livelihood. I'd also like to continue to be able to buy pencils to draw so I can bring you more fun and affordable clip art.
Can the clip art be used on my school library site?
Unfortunately, NO. Please see the answer listed above under school website etc.
Can I resell your clip art?
Absolutely not. Piracy is not cool. It's illegal in fact. Don't be a pirate. Be kind. We like kind people.
Can the clip art be used to make coloring pages?
The clip art may not be placed individually on a page and used as coloring page for commercial purposes. Personal use is fine. Personal classroom use is fine. Personal office use such as a doctor's office is fine. Selling them commercially is not cool. Be cool. Coolness and kindness go a long way in my book.
Color-By-Number and Color-By-Sight Word are fine because the image is stamped out. However placing an image on a blank page with nothing else as is found in a coloring book is not allowed. Please remember that the images must be used as part of an overall design. An overall design is something you create with your fantastic imagination and the images are meant to be used to enhance the wonderful ideas that come from said fantastic imagination of yours.
If I find one of your images on a web site or search engine may I use it without purchasing a license?
Not without purchasing a license. The use of all Whimsy Clips artwork requires a purchase. Displaying images on websites, search engines or a blog is a violation of my licensing terms and copyright. Use of an image without purchasing the necessary license is also a copyright violation. Please respect my artwork and livelihood.
Furthermore, as stated above, my artwork may not be posted online. Doing so is a copyright violation.
Can the clip art be used to make birthday party invitations?
Of course! Everyone does to have a fun party invitation!
Can I create a board game for my classroom using Whimsy Clips clip art?
Can the artwork be used in iPad apps or other apps?
Not at this time.
Do you ever update your terms?
Rarely. But when I do it's to add an allowed use or to remove a restriction. I would never update the terms to remove an allowed use. That wouldn't be very nice. :)
The download link for my purchase has expired and I need to download the clip art again what do I do?
Orignally, the download links were set to expire after 14 days. However, effective June 22, 2015, I've changed the download links to expire after 5 downloads. Previously, the download links were set to expire after 14 days, however, now you can download your purchases up to 5 times. So, if you downloaded your purchase today, but your computer crashed next month, or you purchase a new computer in 4 months, all you need to do is login to your account and download your purchase again. If you need to download your purchase more than 5 times, simply email me and I will reset your download link.
Do you give refunds?
Due to the nature of digital downloads refunds are not available. If you need assistance please feel free to contact me via the contact form: Here
