That includes no "in-line" linking methods resulting in images hosted on Yellow Images being displayed on other sites.

WE ASSUME ABSOLUTELY NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR OMISSIONS, ERRORS, INCLUDING WILLFUL DEFECTS, ERRORS AND DEFICIENCIES, EVEN IF THEY MAKE THE PRODUCTS YOU DOWNLOAD UNSUITABLE, HARMFUL, DEFECTIVE OR UNUSABLE.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT NOT EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED BY THE LAWS THAT MAY APPLY TO YOU IN EACH SPECIFIC SITUATION, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE YI PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE USE OF OR RELIANCE ON THE WEBSITE, PLATFORM, THE SERVICE, PRODUCTS, OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES ADVERTISED IN, OBTAINED ON, OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR PLATFORM, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER THEORY, EVEN IF THE YI PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.

Liability And Indemnity Between Authors And Members
Each Author grants to each Member who obtains a License to use the Author’s Product, a limited indemnity as follows:
- If, despite a Member’s compliance with the terms of the License accompanying the Member’s purchase of the Product, a third party makes a claim against the Member alleging that the Member’s use of the Product infringes the intellectual property or other rights of that third party; and
- if that Member promptly notifies us or the Author of the claim and gives the Author the option to control the defense of the claim (at the Author’s cost); then the Author will indemnify the Member against damages finally awarded by a court against the Member or any settlement damages agreed to by the Author regarding that claim.
Our involvement, if we choose to get involved, will be limited to acting as the Author’s agent on behalf of the Author.
The liability of each Author to Members is otherwise limited, for each Product purchased, to the Author’s compensation from the payment for that Product, except to the extent that the Author’s liability arises from wilful misrepresentations made about the item.
Notice And Take-Down Policy
We are serious about intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that any Product is used without your permission in violation of your intellectual property rights, please let us know immediately by sending us an email at [email protected]. In your email please:
- identify the allegedly infringing Product with sufficient precision that would allow us to locate and, in appropriate circumstances, remove the allegedly infringing Product;

- provide a statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and that you are authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the intellectual property owner.
We will use our reasonable efforts to investigate each such complaint and inform you of the decision that we made. If we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that a Product indeed infringes upon your intellectual property, we will promptly cause the Product in question to be removed from the Platform.
Likewise, if you believe that any Product is inappropriate or unlawful, please notify us, indicating the reasons why you believe that the Product is inappropriate or unlawful, and, if we agree, we will promptly cause the Product in question to be removed from the Platform.
If we choose not to remove the allegedly infringing or inappropriate Product from the Platform, you agree to only pursue demands and claims against the Member from whom such Product originated and not to direct any claims against us.

You may terminate your account by sending your termination request to [email protected]. If you terminate your account, you will no longer be able to access Platform or Products.
Access to Products is only granted to Members.
With the exception of Products that we may offer to you free of charge, your access to Products requires payment, which you can make by using any method that is available on the Website at the time of purchase, including but not limited to using our internal currency, Store Credits (“Credits”). We reserve the right to change the method of payment on our Website or Platform at any time without any notice.
Regardless of which payment method you choose to use, you are responsible for your dealings with your bank.
If you are receiving the Service as a Canadian resident, you will be responsible for paying all applicable value added taxes on top of the amount that will be credited to your account, depending on whether the Canadian province in which you reside assesses HST, GST, or any other value added taxes applicable on one or more occasions to your purchase of Products or Credits. If you are a resident in any jurisdiction outside of Canada, you are required to pay, and will remain liable, for all transactional taxes, including but not limited to, sales tax, value-added tax and any other applicable taxes which may be levied as a result of your use of the Services and purchase of Products under the laws of your country of residence. Your responsibility includes withholding taxes if it applies, unless we already process that withholding tax. Additionally, you shall be responsible for all charges related to currency conversion if you are paying in a currency other than U.S. Dollars.
You can purchase access to a specific Product using the Platform or the Service. When you choose the option to pay, your account will be charged by the amount indicated as the price of such Product, after which, through the functionality of the Platform or Service, and subject to your acceptance of the License, you will be immediately granted access to such Product.
We reserve the right to charge a handling fee when you purchase our Products. If you want to avoid the handling fee, you should pay with Credits.
Payments Using Credits
We do not charge a handling fee when you purchase Credits or when you pay with Credits for Products.
You must have a positive balance of Credits in your account to pay for Products with Credits.
When you first register as a Member, you have a zero Credits balance in your account. You may use a credit card to purchase Credits. Each Credit costs one (1) U.S. Dollar. The minimum amount of Credits that you may purchase is 50.00 Credits.
You can always see the Credit balance in your account by logging in to your account on the Platform. The Credit balance in your account represents the number of Credits that you can choose to use to purchase access to a Product through the Platform. You can do so only when you have a positive balance with the number of Credits sufficient to purchase access to the specific Product.
Credits can only be used to pay for Products and cannot be converted back to cash at any time.
Credits expire if not used within 12 months from the date of their purchase, and will be forfeited on the 12 month anniversary of such purchase. If you purchase more Credits at any time during that 12 month period before your Credits expire, the total Credit balance (that is, both the new deposit and the balance of any unused older credits) will become available for a further 12 months from the date of the new purchase. If you don’t use your Credits within that further 12 months, the Credits will be forfeited on the 12 month anniversary of the new purchase. We generally try to tell you beforehand when your Credits are going to expire and be forfeited, but this is not always possible and we don’t promise to warn you.
If you are planning to purchase several Creative Items, Mockups, Images 360 or PNG Images you may wish to purchase a Yellow Ticket membership, which provides you with the ability to purchase Products in the future with various discounts (“Yellow Ticket Membership”). We reserve the right to change the discounts at any time.
Yellow Images offers a variety of Yellow Ticket Membership and each type varies according to the frequency of renewals, duration and number of users under one account. Only registered Members may purchase a Yellow Ticket Membership. If you have not purchased a Yellow Ticket Membership, you will not be entitled to any membership discounts on the purchase of Products. Should you require more information about Yellow Tickets Membership, please visit the page: https://yellowimages.com/yellow-ticket or contact us at [email protected].
As a holder of a Yellow Ticket Membership, and depending on the type of Yellow Ticket Membership purchased, you are entitled to a discount on as many Products as you may choose to purchase throughout the duration of the Yellow Ticket Membership. Notwithstanding your purchase of a Yellow Ticket Membership, we reserve the right to introduce, discontinue, or modify certain types of Yellow Tickets Memberships in our sole discretion.
Yellow Ticket Membership discounts cannot be combined with any other discounts we may offer. A single Yellow Ticket Membership cannot be used with multiple accounts (unless they are users of the same multi-user account). Multiple Yellow Tickets Memberships cannot be activated with one account at the same time.
As a holder of a Yellow Ticket Membership, you may be entitled to place a request for a free custom job (“Wishlist Request”). However, being entitled to place a Wishlist Request does not guarantee that your Wishlist Request will be fulfilled within a certain timeframe or at all, and we hereby disclaim any liability should your expectations not be met. If your Wishlist Request is fulfilled you may purchase the newly created Product as usual. You do not have any exclusive claim to such newly created Product, and any other Member may purchase it as well. When you upload any images or other content as part of your Wishlist Request for us to create a custom Product, you represent and warrant that you are the rightful owner of intellectual property in respect of such images or content or that you are duly authorized by such rightful owner. When you place your Wishlist Request, you will be deemed to have granted to us a license to alter the images and content you upload, to create derivative works thereof, and to upload and distribute the resulting custom Product through the Platform. The copyright and other intellectual property in the resulting Wishlist Request Product will be owned by the Author or such other person who will have created the Wishlist Request Product, even though the Wishlist Request Product is a derivative work based on the images and content you may have provided. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the YI Parties from and against any and all liabilities, claims, damages, expenses (including reasonable lawyer fees and costs), and other losses arising out of or in any way related to ownership of the images and content you upload as part of your Wishlist Request or the Wishlist Request Products based on such images or content.
Yellow Ticket Membership cannot be cancelled, refunded, or converted back to cash.
Custom Service Project
Yellow Images provide Members the ability to submit a request to create a custom job (including but not limited to Mockups, Images 360 or PNG Images) (“Custom Service Project”). Depending on the type of membership, the Custom Service Project may be eligible for an additional discount. We reserve the right to change the amount of discount at any time.
Members should provide details as to what custom job it is requesting, the intended use and any other pertinent information that is being requested by Yellow Images. Once we receive the brief, we will process the request and we may ask you additional questions. If we do not have any additional questions, we will let you know the price and the timeframe of when the Custom Service Project should be completed by.
The price for the Custom Service Project will depend on its complexity. Some pre-set prices may be displayed on Yellow Images website and some prices will be provided to you after accepting the brief as quotes.
Member will thereafter have the option to either accept or reject the quote, at its sole and absolute discretion. In the event the Member proceeds with the quote, the Member will be required to deposit to Yellow Images, the full amount (including any applicable taxes) of the amount due, which shall be held by Yellow Images, on behalf of the parties until such time as custom job is completed. No work will commence until such time as the full amount has been paid to Yellow Images by the Member. For the avoidance of doubt, the contractual arrangement will be between the Author or Authors and the Member and shall not include Yellow Images. Once the custom job is complete, Yellow Images shall release the funds held to the Author or Authors in full and final satisfaction of the custom job creation. The Author or Authors shall be granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license by the Member to allow the Author or Authors to display the custom job (with full attribution) on the Author or Author’s portfolio on the Platform, except in situation where the Member has paid expressly for exclusivity.
For avoidance of any doubt, Yellow Images shall charge an administration fee on any amount paid by the Member to the Author or Authors, in such amounts as agreed between Yellow Images and the Author or Authors.
Please be aware that all sales are final. Due to the nature of the Products, you will not be entitled to a refund for any reason whatsoever, except where the Product you purchased is materially different from the Preview. As such, please do your due diligence before you make a purchase. Please consider the suitability of your chosen License and evaluate the Previews. If you need any additional information about a Product that is available for purchase, please contact the Member who uploaded the Product.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you feel your situation warrants a refund, please send us an email at [email protected]. Do not lodge a dispute with a payment agent (such as your credit card issuer). If you lodge a dispute with a payment agent, we will temporarily suspend your account with us until such dispute initiated through the payment agent is resolved.
We do not offer a price guarantee or a price change guarantee and we reserve the right to change the price on any of the Products we offer through the Platform or Service at any time without notice. You are not entitled to a refund if you purchased a Product and we subsequently lower the price for the Product or if we decide to make the Product available free of charge.
Members’ License To Use Products
You are not authorized to download or otherwise use Products unless:
- you are a Member; and

When you pay to download a Product, you do not become the owner of the Product or the intellectual property associated with the Product. You are purchasing a right to use the Product limited by the terms of the license that accompanies your purchase (the “License”). You will be provided an opportunity to review and accept the License prior to completion of your purchase.
Except in exceptional cases, we do not own intellectual property on the Products either. All intellectual property is owned by the Authors who create the Products. We only act as the agent for the Authors in their dealings with you. For greater clarity, in most cases, the License is between you and the Author of the Product that you purchase. All guarantees of ownership and authority that we provide to you during the transaction are provided to you on behalf of the respective Authors. For those Products in respect of which we do own intellectual property, we will act as the licensor.
