Our Licensing Models
Before you add a product into your shopping cart, you will have to decide which of the following licensing models to choose:
Single User License
This model allows for the use of the licensed material by one person (a natural person) doing commercial work generating less than $100,000 USD per year in annual gross revenue (based on latest available completed fiscal year reporting). For the avoidance of doubt: A Single User License may not be used by a corporation, or a party with a turnover of $100,000 USD or more per year. Nor may a Freelance License be used for projects with a total budget of $100,000 USD or more.
This model allows for the use of the licensed material by up to 5 users within one company or other type of enterprise doing commercial work generating less than $200,000 USD per year in annual gross revenue (based on latest available completed fiscal year reporting). For the avoidance of doubt: A Team License may not be used by a corporation, or a party with a turnover of $200,000 USD or more per year. Nor may a Team License be used for projects with a total budget of $200,000 USD or more.
For any company with gross revenues or funds raised less than TWO MILLION DOLLARS ($2,000,000.00) per year, this model allows for the use of the licensed material by an unlimited number of users within the same company or enterprise at a single location (i.e. one building, campus or street address). You are eligible for this license only when you have less than $2,000,000 USD annual revenue or funds raised, and you are not affiliated with or funded by a publisher owned or controlled studio. If You exceed this amount or breach these conditions, you must contact Friendly Shade for a license upgrade.
This model allows for simultaneous use of the licensed material by up to 50 students or members of the teaching staff within a single educational institution. Any commercial use beyond a purely educational purpose is prohibited.
If you do not qualify for a license listed above, you may not use the Services under this Agreement but may use the Services under a separate Friendly Shade Custom License. Friendly Shade Custom License is a commercial license provided for entities generating more than TWO MILLION DOLLARS ($2,000,000.00) per year in annual gross revenue (based on latest available completed fiscal year reporting).
