RocketTheme Terms of Service

RocketTheme hereby grants you a revocable, non-transferable and non-exclusive license to use the web templates and other products sold through our web site by RocketTheme (the "products") in accordance with these Terms of Service (the "license") issued by RocketTheme.

NOTE: The term Templates may be used interchangeably to refer to Templates, Themes, or Styles or what ever term constitutes a "skin" for a particular platform

  1. Limited Usage Granted:

    You have the right to use the RocketTheme templates on as many concurrent sites as your site licenses provide for. After your membership expires, you may continue to use the templates your site licenses allow for, so the templates are not time-limited. The Developer level clubs grants unlimited implementations of RocketTheme templates as long as the usage complies with the rest of the Terms of Service.
  2. Non-Profit Sites:

    Non-profit sites are not counted towards concurrent templates usages. A non-profit site is defined to mean that it represents a legally registered non-profit organization in the country of its origin. If your site does not fall under this definition, it is not considered a non-profit by RocketTheme.
  3. Developer Membership:

    Developer level members need to renew their developer level account if they wish to continue to deploy RocketTheme templates to new clients after their existing Developer membership has expired. The developer level account allows for unlimited usage in client projects, it does NOT allow for redistribution of templates in any form. If you have questions regarding this distinction please check with the FAQs or contact us using the Contact form.
  4. License:

    RocketTheme templates are GPL compliant. All PHP portions of the templates, themes and styles are licensed under the appropriate GPL license of the parent platform. The non-compiled portions including images, cascading style sheets and JavaScript of "Club" templates are licensed under the The "RocketTheme Proprietary Use License" in accordance with the rest of these Terms of Service. "Free" templates are released with all aspects of the templates released under either GPL and/or MIT licenses. Further details on the licenses can be found in the RocketTheme Licenses link at the bottom of every page on RocketTheme.com.
