     Can the clip art be used in editable products?

       The short answer is No. The rights allowed has never included template usage - regardless if there is a design or not. Whimsy Clips Standard License does not permit editable or non-editable graphic or template usage.
      Also, please remember the rights to use and create with the images (which includes inputting custom text) is Non-Transferrable, Non-Assignable. Placing an image or images on a page/template and allowing a buyer/3rd party to input their own text/content is transferring the rights. This is not allowed under the Standard License Agreement.
      If you have needs beyond the Standard License please contact Whimsy Clips to discuss licensing.

       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. We don't know about you but we don't like thieves, and we'd like to be able to eat, so please don't post images online; it affects our business. We'd also like to continue to be able to buy pencils to draw so we can bring you more fun and affordable clip art.

           Can the clip art be used to make coloring pages?

            The clip art may not be used in coloring pages in commercial products.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 of a license. 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.

                   Do you ever update your terms?

                    Rarely. But when we do it's to add an allowed use or to remove a restriction. We would never update the terms to remove an allowed use. That wouldn't be very nice. :)
