The following Licence Terms (the “Agreement”) may be amended or updated from time to time and constitute an agreement between you (“Buyer” or “you”) and Michelle Landry/Windloft Workshop (“the Seller”), setting forth the rights and obligations with respect to the digital content (“Artwork”) licensed by you. Please review the Agreement before you purchase any Artwork.

All licensable Artwork available from the Seller via (and any additional online storefronts, such as found on are protected by Canadian and international copyright laws and treaties. As between you and the Seller, the Seller retains ownership of the Artwork, but grants to you certain rights to use the Artwork on the following terms. All other rights are expressly reserved by the Seller.

The Seller hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use, modify and reproduce the Artwork worldwide, in perpetuity, as expressly permitted by the licence herein and subject to the terms set forth herein:


  1. You may use a purchased Artwork in a new End Product as long as the End Product meets the following requirements:
    End Products must be significantly different than the original Artwork and require time, effort, and skill to produce. End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Artwork you purchased. End Products must not redistribute the original Artwork to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original Artwork.
  2. A purchased Artwork may be used in only one Project. A Project is defined as a complete and cohesive undertaking that may result in one or more End Products. Any End Products included in the one Project must be directly related under a single concept. However, all purchased Artwork may be used in an unlimited number of Personal Use Projects.
  3. Under the Standard Licence, you may use purchased Artwork to create End Products for Sale where lifetime sales of the End Product for Sale do not exceed 250 units. If a Standard Licensed Artwork is purchased and used to create an End Product for Sale of which the sales exceed 250 units, either another Standard Licence or an Extended Licence must be purchased. For End Products that are not offered for sale, you may distribute as many copies of the End Product as you like.
  4. An End Product For Sale can be either a digital design or physical item that you and/or your client intend to sell to more than a single person (wholesale, drop-shipping, etc.). For purposes of this licence, “intend to sell” means you plan to sell, license, sub-license, or distribute the End Product for any type of fee or charge.
  5. You may modify or manipulate the Artwork, or incorporate it into other content and make a derivative work from it. As between you and the Seller, the Seller will retain all right, title, and ownership in the Artwork, and the resulting derivative work is subject to the terms of this Standard Licence.
  6. You may not sublicense, resell, share, transfer, or otherwise redistribute the Artwork (e.g. as stock, in a tool or template, with source files, and/or not incorporated into an End Product) under any circumstances, not even for free.
  7. You may not make the Artwork available on a digital asset management system, shared drive, or the like for the purposes of sharing or transferring the Artwork, and you must not permit an end user of the end product to extract the Artwork and use it separately from the End Product.
  8. You may use purchased Artwork for broadcast uses up to 10,000 views or viewers in a given month such as TV, films, streaming video, on demand broadcasts, and/or online videos. For anything over 10,000 monthly views or viewers, contact the Seller directly in order to inquire about further rights under an Extended Licence.
  9. You may not publicly display the Artwork: (a) as a standalone file in any digital format on the internet; or (b) in any digital format without imposing technical or written restrictions to prevent the unauthorized use of the Artwork by third parties. You agree to take all commercially reasonable steps to prevent third parties from accessing and/or duplicating the Artwork. If you become aware of any unauthorized duplication of any Artwork please notify the Seller via email at
  10. You may not use any Artwork in a way that violates the Agreement including, without limitation, in a manner that infringes any third party’s trademark or other intellectual property, or would give rise to a claim of deceptive advertising or unfair competition.
  11. You may not register as a trademark the Artwork or the end product incorporating the Artwork, including for logos or other branding. If you use the Artwork to create a logo for yourself or a client, keep in mind that third parties can and may also be using the Artwork, even in another logo, as the Artwork is available to licence on a non-exclusive basis.
  12. You may not use any Artwork if that use could result in a third party’s claim that it acquired rights in the Artwork that are contrary to this licence. Upon the Seller’s request, you shall immediately remove the Artwork from any unauthorized location or use, including an unauthorized social media platform or website.
  13. You may not falsely represent, expressly or by way of reasonable implication, that any Artwork was created by you or a person other than the copyright holder(s) of that Artwork.
  14. You may not use Artwork(s) in a manner that is unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, deceptive, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, obscene, threatening, profane, or promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual, or is otherwise objectionable.


If you purchase an Extended Licence, the following terms apply:

  1. This Extended Licence allows you to use Artwork in any manner permitted under the Standard Licence, and pursuant to the obligations and restrictions therein; and
  2. You may also use Artwork purchased under the Extended Licence to create End Products for Sale, in which the End Product for Sale may be sold an unlimited number of times.
  3. You are also permitted an unlimited number of monthly views for End Products that will appear in TV, film, or online, as live/archived videos or live/archived broadcasts.


  1. If you breach any of the terms of the Agreement, the licence can be terminated, in addition to the Seller’s other rights at law and/or equity. If that happens, you must stop making copies of or distributing the End Product until you remove the Artwork from it. The Seller shall be under no obligation to refund any fees paid by you in the event that you must discontinue use of the Artwork by reason of a breach.
  2. If you create the End Product for a client, your client must comply with these Licence Terms. You must include a copy of this agreement (or a link to the online version) with any final submission of files or information to your client upon project completion.
  3. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and the Seller, concerning your use of the Artwork. If any provision of the Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that part of the Agreement shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
  4. The Seller’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Licence shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
  5. All Artworks are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of non-infringement, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose.
  6. The Seller does not warrant that the Artwork, their website, online storefronts or other materials or services will meet your requirements or that use will be uninterrupted or error free. The entire risk as to the quality, performance and use of the Seller’s Products & Services is solely with you.
