SECTION 6 – Graphic Ocean SUBSCRIPTION
6.1 BASIC TERMS
Graphic Ocean Subscription is a monthly subscription that renews the initial payment monthly to give access to subscription items. Graphic Ocean subscription items are tagged with a “✦ SUBCRIPTION” banner. Subscription items are items that are available for Graphic Ocean Subscribers for a monthly recurring fee. Not all products on Graphic Ocean are included in Graphic Ocean Subscription. We also host a lot of individual items that can only be purchased individually.
Although Graphic Ocean Subscription offers unlimited downloads, you may not scrape or create a bot that downloads more than a human possibly can. We terminate accounts, without a refund, who breaks this term. We reserve a right to modify new and ongoing Graphic Ocean Subscriptions with a limit of 750 downloads per month if we see a continuous misuse of this term.
All items downloaded under a Graphic Ocean Subscription plan are covered with our standard license and are for one seat aka one user. Owners of Graphic Ocean Subscription can use all subscription items in an unlimited number of projects. In individual item purchases, this is restricted to 1 project* per purchase, but with Graphic Ocean subscription there is no such restriction. Other standard license terms apply to Graphic Ocean Subscription as they apply to individual purchases.
*not including installable items, like fonts, add-ons and presets which can be used in unlimited projects and for unlimited sales of end products
After the cancellation of a monthly subscription, the downloaded subscription items aren’t allowed to be used in new projects anymore. An ongoing subscription is needed for new work to be created. Old projects are still covered within our standard license if the project was started before the subscription ended.
Subscription items can be directly downloaded on the product page. No need to go through the checkout. The subscription items show a $0.00 price for Graphic Ocean Subscribers.
Subscription items are set and maintained by the individual sellers on Graphic Ocean. We don’t guarantee any availability of these items as our sellers have the ability to edit and/or remove the products or set them off from Graphic Ocean Subscription. If there’s a specific item that you subscribed for, please download it immediately after a confirmed subscription to secure your download. We cannot offer a refund if your preferred item has been removed from Graphic Ocean subscription.
The payment can be made with a credit card or with PayPal. This is a monthly ongoing recurring subscription price which we will keep charging until cancellation by the customer is made or the payment service declines our charging attempt. We will attempt a charge even if the credit card is expired as that’s considered a normal credit card policy. If the payment has been confirmed, it cannot be terminated and if the user doesn’t want to keep paying, cancellation before the next payment date must be done beforehand. We cannot issue any refunds after payment has been done.
6.5.1 PAYMENT FEES
We reserve a right to add payment gate fees (“fee”) for microtransactions under $5. The fee is $2 and it’s clearly stated on the checkout page. The fee is waived for orders over $5. Microtransactions have a higher payment processor cost to us and that’s why we have this fee in place.
The customer may cancel a subscription before the next payment date if the customer doesn’t want to pay for the service anymore. The cancellation must be made on the customers Graphic Ocean account. If the customer is not able to access the account, immediate contact to us is necessary for a manual cancellation.
You will lose access to download subscription items when the current plan (monthly or yearly) will end. You may not use the downloaded products for new projects/designs anymore. You will also lose access to download product updates. Any existing projects/designs, where you’ve used Graphic Ocean Subscription items, are still covered by our standard license.
