As seen on Notes

Arguably the single most important document relevant to millions of buyers and thousands of authors and affiliates, the Marketplace Terms and Conditions are our rules by which we make Envato Marketplaces available to the world.

They’ve been re-launched to make them easier to understand!

We’ve separated the terms into three separate documents written for members, authors and affiliates.

We now have the:
  1. Marketplaces Terms relevant to everybody who uses the Marketplaces.
  2. Author Terms relevant only to Authors on our Marketplaces.
  3. Affiliate Program Terms relevant only to our Marketplaces Affiliates.
The main reason behind the re-launch is to give you terms using plain-speaking language that are:
  • well structured
  • easy to understand for our global community
  • respectful of the actual reasons why you use our Marketplaces
  • as transparent as possible about what actual happens when you join our community.

If you’re unsure about anything submit a support ticket here.

We are proud of the fact that at every opportunity we try and communicate to you in natural language (not lawyer speak!) to help you best understand what we at Envato are all about. We think the most important way to do this is through our new Marketplaces Terms, Author Terms and Affiliate Program Terms.

FAQs

Why have you changed the Membership Terms and Conditions?
To make them easier to understand for everyone!
Why have you split the Membership Terms and Conditions in to the Marketplaces Terms, Author Terms and Affiliate Program Terms?
To make sure that we respect the audience we are talking to…You! Members don’t need to know anything about being an Author unless they need to…same goes with being an Affiliate. You only need to read the Author Terms if you’re an Author (or wanting to become an Author). For example in the past, Author specific terms were mixed altogether with general member terms.
Has anything changed in the terms?
No, not really. We have tried our very best to make the new terms as consistent and accurate to the old terms as possible. The only change that you’ll notice in the terms is one about deducting earnings from Authors if there has been a refund given to a buyer on an item. That’s because the underlying sale has been reversed (take a look at section 17 b. of the Author Terms for details).

Thank you…

27. Library review: We like to keep our Marketplaces fresh and full of quality items that meet the latest technical standards and market trends, and so we may review our libraries from time to time. We may remove an item from our Marketplaces at our discretion, for any reason and at any time without notice to you. We will not be held responsible for any loss that you may suffer as a result of your item being removed.

Really scary and disturbing part…

Hey Anps, sounds a little heavy handed in isolation but we need to be able to do this to protect our community and make sure our Marketplaces contain items that are legitimate and deserve to be on there! Nothing new, just a little easier to understand now!

You do know that some of the authors need to feed their families ? What’s up with you being community centered and not once wanting to contact the author about their item ? First disabling items, now even deleting…

Actually I do understand you, but this is written in a way to protect yourself and give you an option to do with the items at your own will, the main reason here that i am concerned is the reason that authors are opening threads and complaining and that is that with this you work on principal guilty until proven innocent and not vice versa as majority of court systems work. And its a bit harsh what i am going to say but dictatorship and iron fist rule works in this fashion. Legally i don’t know how is in Australia but here this is highly illegal, specially envato should understand that they are literary playing with peoples lives.

And btw there are more parts that do everything to protect and give you almighty power al almost no to protect us.

So this is faaaar from community driven. Sorry for being so strait forward, just constructive criticism. Best regards
