Copyright and Intellectual Property
All generated logos are protected by copyright laws.
You may not use any of the logos without obtaining a licence from us.
A license can be obtained by purchasing the logo. We make backups of all generated logos and regularly check whether they appear anywhere on the internet.
We retain the copyright and all associated rights to the original design. You can use the purchased logo for any commercial or non-commercial purpose. You have the full ownership of the purchased design as a whole, not to the individual elements like the used fonts or icons. The purchased license does not allow you to sell, assign, or transfer rights to the original design.
The user acknowledges that no trademark, copyright or service marks are being conveyed under this license agreement. Furthermore the user acknowledges that we have no obligation or duty to perform trademark, copyright or service marks searches to validate that the logo is not infringing on any trademark, copyright or service marks. We encourage the user to perform their own independent searches.
b. Third Party Design Resources
Prior to purchasing and using your end product, SMASHINGLOGO highly recommends you to perform a due diligence check to determine that the use of the design resources (e.g. the used symbols and fonts) is free of any adverse claims and is not subject to any third party rights. SMASHINGLOGO uses symbols provided by third party content providers (e.g. the Noun Project). They obtain the symbols from other third party contributors. All use of these symbols is at your own risk. You shall abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, and shall not use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sub-license, rent, lend, assign, gift, sell or otherwise transfer or distribute for any purposes whatsoever any portion of the design resources not owned by you: (i) without the express prior written consent of the respective owners or (ii) in any way that violates any third party right. You acknowledge that some fonts and symbols used during the design process might have been licensed from a third party provider. Under no circumstances will SMASHINGLOGO be liable in any way for any design resources, including, but not limited to, for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any materials or any part thereof. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any design resources, including, without limitation, the existence of any third party rights that may exist in such resources.
You hereby grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license and permission to use the created end products, your name and likeness and any associated rights, including intellectual property rights for our internal and marketing purposes and that you have all the rights necessary to grant us such license.
If you have purchased a logo from us and created another logo on our website afterwards which you like better, you can ask for replacement within 30 days of purchase. You can take advantage of this replacement only once (per purchase). The acquired license is automatically transferred to the second logo. You are not allowed to use the first logo after it has been replaced with the second one.
After the logo has been purchased and the user has access to the files, they are not eligible for a refund. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
