Terms of use

 Last updated: 22nd November 2021

Welcome to Dekorate

Hi, we’re Dekorate and welcome! We’re happy to have you here and we hope you enjoy your stay. This website is operated and managed by the business enterprise of “Dekorate” [www.dekorate.com]. When we use “we”, “us” and “our” refer to “Dekorate”. Dekorate offers this website, including its subsites, and all information, tools, and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies, and notices stated here.

During your time with us, you agree to follow the ground rules outlined in these terms so please read and understand them. If you don’t accept the terms then we’ll be sad, but you will need to leave because your presence on and use of the Dekorate Market sites is conditional on your acceptance to be bound by these terms and the Acceptable Use Policy whether you become a member or not.

Any new features or tools which are added to the Dekorate website shall also be subjected to the Terms of Service. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time on this page. We reserve the right to update, change, or replace any part of these Terms of Service by posting updates and/or changes to our website. It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the website following the posting of any changes thereby establishes your acceptance of those changes.

How browsing and membership works

Browsing: You need to be 16 years or over to browse the Dekorate sites. We don’t knowingly collect any information from anyone aged 16 or under. When browsing the sites you agree to follow our guidelines or instructions and keep in mind that these terms apply to any use of our websites whether or not you’re a member.

Age: You need to be 18 years or over to become a member or to buy items. If you’re under 18 you will need to get a parent or guardian to buy items or use the account of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age, with their permission, and this adult will be responsible for all your activities.

Membership: Dekorate Account Membership is free. When you become a member you get a Dekorate account that is accessible from our website. Your membership will allow you to ‘buy’ (license) items from our website and generally contribute to our ecosystem of blender assets that help people get creative.

Your responsibility: You promise that the information you give us is true, accurate, and complete and, if you sign up for a Dekorate account, that you will keep your account information up-to-date (including a current email address). Your membership is not transferable, which means you cannot sell your account. You are responsible for any use of the Dekorate site including any activity that occurs in conjunction with your username and password, if you have a Dekorate account, so keep your password secure and don’t let any other person use your username or password. If you realize there’s any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security you need to let us know immediately. You must not use a virtual private network or VPN or any other means to avoid compliance with these terms and conditions, or for any fraudulent or illegal reasons.

What you're buying?

License: When you buy an item, you acquire the right to use that item; you're not actually acquiring the item itself. What you get includes a license directly from the author to use that item. Items are subject to specific terms of use, and these terms are the ‘license’ that we set on Dekorate Store. This license also applies to you if you download an item that someone else has bought for you (because anyone downloading an item needs to be a Dekorate member). Different license types are available for you to choose from when you have selected an item. You’ll need to think about the way you want to use the item so that you can pick the right license to allow that use. It’s your responsibility to choose the correct license.
