Laughingbird Software reserves the right to ban or remove access to Service if we receive one or more copyright complaints against your listed Assets.

Laughingbird Software may, in its sole discretion, provide you with optional recommendations to consider when creating your listings and may also by default use the recommended prices as the default prices for your Assets. If Laughingbird Software uses the recommended prices as default prices for your Assets, you may opt-out of such default pricing and determine your own prices within your shop settings area. Such recommendations and/or default pricing may be based on the aggregated sales and performance history of similar sold and current listings; results will vary for individual listings. Your use of pricing recommendations or default pricing is optional, at your own risk, and Laughingbird Software does not warrant that such prices will be most effective for your Assets. You agree that you are not relying on any pricing recommendations from Laughingbird Software.

  2. License Grant.
    1. To Laughingbird Software. By posting any Assets on the Service, you expressly grant, and you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant, to Laughingbird Software a royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such Assets and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your Asset, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Service and Laughingbird Software’s business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You affirm that any listed Assets are cleared to be sold under the applicable Licenses listed including the Laughingbird Software EULA and any other applicable licenses.
    2. To Other Users. You also hereby grant each User of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your User Content through the Service, as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Marketplace Terms and applicable License. You grant and/or authorize Laughingbird Software to grant each User of the Service who purchases licenses to your Assets with all the rights, and subject to all the restrictions, described in the applicable License purchased. You should review the Licenses carefully before uploading any Assets.
  3. Asset Delivery. All Assets must be delivered immediately after purchase, with no barriers to immediate download. Whenever required, all Asset files should be hosted on Laughingbird Software or any hosting provider used by Laughingbird Software to host files. You must not require a Buyer to provide personal information in order to access licensed Assets.
  4. Resolution Process for Transactions. All parties share the responsibility for making sure that purchases facilitated by our Service are satisfactory and hassle-free. Our Service hosts the resolution process for transactions when Buyers claim that their Asset was not received, or the Asset they received was different from what was described in the product listing. We may take a more active role in ensuring transaction problems are resolved; however, you understand that we are not obligated to do so. You agree to permit us to make a final decision, at our sole discretion, on any disputes. We reserve the right to fix any processing errors we discover by debiting or crediting Shop Owners earned monetary balance.
    1. Refunds: You understand and agree that Laughingbird Software has no obligation to provide refunds on any licensed Assets, including but not limited to if Laughingbird Software finds that the Asset has been downloaded by the User. You agree that any and all refunds are provided at the sole discretion of Laughingbird Software. You understand and agree to Laughingbird Software’s full Refund policy, which we may change from time to time.
  5. Payouts & Earnings. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, Laughingbird Software shall send requested payouts according to published timeframes. Available payout methods are subject to change. Our current payment terms (rates, fees, etc.) may be changed at our sole discretion at any time and such change will apply to all transactions that occur after the published change. Payout requests may only be made if the total amount due to you totals at least $20. Laughingbird Software reserves the right to withhold payment or chargeback to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under these Marketplace Terms, or amounts due to any breach of these Marketplace Terms by you, pending Laughingbird Software’s investigation of such breach. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account, which includes without limitation applicable tax information. If we believe that we are obligated to obtain tax information, and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person or entity from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Any third-party fees related to returned or canceled payments due to a contact or payment information error or omission may be deducted from the newly issued payment. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your participation in the Service. If you dispute any payment, you must notify Laughingbird Software in writing within thirty (30) days of such payment. Failure to notify Laughingbird Software shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by Laughingbird Software. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by Laughingbird Software or have any effect under these Marketplace Terms. We may withhold any taxes or other amounts from payments due to you as required by law. To protect against the risk of liability, we may request that our payment service provider hold Shop Owner funds based on certain factors, including, but not limited to, selling history, seller performance, the riskiness of the listing category, or the filing of a dispute claim.
