By selecting the "I Agree" check-box during the Membership Sign-up process, uploading and/or downloading any Content on/from the Site, or your continued use of the Site, and any other way signifying your acceptance, you accept the CLA either for yourself or on behalf of your employer or entity that is identifiable as the member account holder to the Site, and therefore you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind yourself or your employer to the CLA, and to abide by its provisions. Should you have no authority to represent another entity or should you disagree with the terms outlined in the CLA, do not accept the CLA and do not download any Content off of the Site and terminate your account.
Any downloadable Content off the site will be subject to the CLA, and will be governed either by a Standard Royalty Free license (‘Standard License’) or an Extended License – both to be defined below. Any uploaded Content is always governed by the Standard License by default, and Extended License types may be purchased to give more rights to a user who downloads such Content. Options and provisions for an Extended License are dependent upon each particular file in the Site's Content as marked. Should there be no license articulated upon your request to download Content, the corresponding downloaded Content will be subject to the Standard License. Unless the activity is explicitly permitted by the Standard License that you have purchased or the Extended License that you have purchased, you may not do that activity or partake in that activity using downloaded Content. All other rights to the Content, including copyright and other intellectual property rights, are to be retained by the respective owners of the Content, or by the Site in the event that the Site holds copyright ownership to such Content.
Standard Royalty Free License Terms
Should you agree to download Standard Royalty Free Content, it grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide license to use in permissible ways defined in this section of the CLA, known as the Standard Royalty Free License or the Standard License. Unless the activity is explicitly permitted by the Standard License, you may not do that activity or partake in that activity. All other rights to the Content, including copyright and other intellectual property rights, are to be retained by the respective owners of the Content or the Site in the event that the Site holds copyright ownership to such Content.
Standard Royalty Free License: Use and Limitations
Content that you download under a Standard Royalty Free License may be used by you in applications and media not intended for sale or resale, such as prints, newspapers, editorials, newsletters, online publications, posters, advertising, or other reproductions for personal or promotional use, including commercials, printed materials, product packaging, video presentations, brochures, catalogs, cards, greeting cards, post cards.
However, Standard License Content cannot be used for resale, re-license, or in any other way unless expressly permitted by the Site or the Company.

Standard License Content may not be used for any pornographic, immoral, defamatory, or libelous in nature. It is also prohibited to make the Standard License Content available on another website for download for free or for sale, including for news wire or syndication purposes. Standard License Content may be used for online editorial use and blog use, though the Content’s width on such sites or blogs may not exceed 800 pixels. Standard License Content may be used in prints not intended for sale, though the number of copies may not be in excess of 500,000 copies.

The Standard License is effective until terminated. You may terminate your downloaded Content’s Standard License by completely destroying and deleting downloaded content, copies, or derivative works, and completely ceasing any use of the downloaded Content.
