Terms and Conditions of Use
Updated June 1, 2018
Welcome to creativecontracts.co, as operated by Brittany Ratelle, LLC. These are our rules if you want to use our website and the services or products available on our website. If you do not agree to these rules, you cannot use our site. We can change these rules whenever we want and will post the new rules on our site, whether you notice them or not. We have intentionally written them in a way that avoids legalese so that everyone can clearly understand and agree to the rules and understand their rights and responsibilities.
We hope there won’t be any problems and that you will reach out to us if you are having issues with our site, service, or products.
By purchasing your template or any product from Creative Contracts™, you are granted one revocable, worldwide, non-exclusive license to the product(s) you bought. If you violate this license by giving or selling a copy of our template(s)/product(s) to anyone other than a client, employee, or your legal counsel, or if you imply that anyone who gets access to the template/product(s) can use it for commercial purposes, we reserve the right to invoice you for the licenses you've given others and can revoke your license and access to our template(s)/product(s) permanently.
The lowdown: if you purchase a template, you are not allowed to share it with your business friends. If they need a template, we hope you will direct them to where you got yours and give them the opportunity to purchase a template. We have worked hard to develop our templates and hope that as a creative, you respect intellectual property rights. NOT ALL SHARING IS CARING.
Legal Disclaimer: This site is not a law firm and nothing on this site nor any of its products constitute official legal advice. Please consult with an attorney in your jurisdiction for any questions about how you might use these templates in your business.
Lowdown: These templates may have been drafted by an attorney -- but not YOUR attorney and not with the full facts of your particular business or project. If you want to work one-on-one with an attorney, please visit brittanyratelle.com/services.

A court can also decide issues about the scope and enforceability of these arbitration provisions.
