2. License Grant and Use of Services.
2.1 License and Services.
(a) Subject to User’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and payment of the license fees, Mixamo grants User a personal, nonexclusive, and non-transferable license to use the Website and Software, and to use the Content on the Website. User may not grant sublicenses of its rights except for the right to reproduce and distribute the Embedded Animation Data in User’s animated work to customers pursuant to Section 2.4 below.
(b) If User downloads an Application from the Website, subject to User’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and, if applicable, the payment of any fee in connection with such Application, Mixamo grants User a personal, nonexclusive, non- sublicensable and non-transferable license to use such Application.
Mixamo grants a limited license to access and make personal use of the Website and not to download (other than the Animation Data, Applications and limited portions of the Software for access purposes) or modify the Website, or any portion of the Website. User may not frame, or use any framing techniques to enclose any trademark, logo, or other proprietary information (including images, text, movie, page layout, or form) of Mixamo. The Website, Content, Software, Applications or any portion of the Website, Content, Software or Applications may not be reproduced, duplicated, adapted, copied, sold, resold, transmitted or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose or any other purpose without the express written consent of Mixamo. User may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, transmit, or distribute the Software or Application or any portion of the Content, other than the Embedded Animation Data as set forth in Section 2.4 below, without the prior express written consent of Mixamo.
2.3 User Characters.
User may upload User Characters to use with the Software and Website. User grants a royalty-free license to Mixamo to use the uploaded User Characters for internal testing purposes. Mixamo’s license under this Section 2.3 shall continue until User deletes the User Characters from the Website or notifies Mixamo in writing that such license is terminated. Mixamo may delete User Character(s) from the Website at Mixamo’s discretion. User represents and warrants that any User Characters or other content uploaded by User to the Website do not and will not contain any viruses or other programming routines that interfere with the Website, computer systems or data. During the term of this Agreement, should a virus be found to exist in or have emanated from any User Character or other content uploaded by User, User agrees, at its sole expense, to use reasonable commercial efforts (including but not limited to providing appropriate replacement software, installation, and diagnostic testing) to remove the effect of the virus within five (5) days of Mixamo’s notice. In the event the virus causes loss of operational efficiency or loss of data, User shall assist Mixamo to mitigate such loss and restore the Website to its original operating efficiency within ten (10) days of Mixamo’s notice.
2.4 License to Animation Data; Distribution of Embedded Animation Data.
User may download the Animation Data for the sole purpose of embedding the selected Animation Data in an animated application prepared by User as a result of using the Services. User may make modifications to the Animation Data solely as a part of preparing the Embedded Animation Data. User agrees that the standalone Animation Data may not be resold, published, or distributed to third parties. Provided User has purchased a particular Animation Data clip, User may reproduce and distribute such Animation Data clip only as Embedded Animation Data embedded in User’s creative animated work to customers without any obligation to pay royalties to Mixamo, and provided User is in compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. User agrees that (a) all copies of the Animation Data contain the Mixamo proprietary notices, and (b) it will distribute its applications and products for which Embedded Animation Data has been embedded pursuant to a commercially reasonable end-user license agreement containing terms and conditions commensurate with industry norms. User’s license to use and distribute Animated Data is limited to Embedded Animated Data. Redistribution, or republication or commercialization of Animated Data that is not Embedded Animated Data is prohibited. For example, approved distribution or use of Animated Data as Embedded Animated Data includes, but is not limited to: (i) as rendered moving images; resold as part of a feature film or broadcast or otherwise used in demonstration or marketing materials, and (ii) as part of a game if the Embedded Animated Data is contained inside a proprietary format and displays inside the game during play. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, Users that have obtained access to the Website pursuant to the terms of a standard education license, between Mixamo and an educational institution or an individual enrolled in aneducational program (each a “Standard Educational License”) with which such user is affiliated (each a “Standard Educational User”) agree that such Standard Educational License access is granted for educational purposes only and not for commercial purposes. Accordingly, Standard Educational Users shall not directly or indirectly license or distribute on a commercial basis any creative animated works containing Embedded Animation Data downloaded by such Standard Educational User pursuant to a Standard Educational License.
3. Prices and Payment Terms.
3.1 Non-Subscription Purchases.
License prices currently available to User are posted on this Website. Payment may be made via the electronic payment method(s) selected by Mixamo from time to time. Mixamo may change the price list available to User from time to time at its sole discretion. User may examine, test, and evaluate the Animation Data clips on the Website without purchasing a license, but once User has purchased a particular Animation Data clip, the purchase shall be nonrefundable. All credits purchased outside a subscription service expire one year after the purchase date.
3.2 Mixamo Annual Subscription.
If User purchases a Mixamo annual subscription service, whether the subscription is “All Access”, “Unlimited+” or another form of annual subscription service that Mixamo may offer from time to time, the applicable fees for the number of seats purchased, plus any applicable tax, must be paid through one of the electronic payment methods offered by Mixamo, such as through a credit card in accordance with the credit card billing policies described in Section 3.3. The applicable fees for the annual subscription service may be paid in advance for the entire annual period at a discounted rate, or paid on a monthly basis at the standard rate. For the avoidance of the doubt, the Mixamo annual subscription license is per-seat and does not allow the concurrent use of the same login/account by more than one user. All Mixamo annual subscription fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or subscription fee credits for partially used annual periods, provided, however, that a User may receive a refund of the User’s Mixamo annual subscription fee if the User requests such refund within 24 hours of the time of purchase or renewal of the Mixamo annual subscription.
3.3 Credit Card Billing Policies.
User’s subscriptions that are paid by credit card will be set to automatically renew. This means that unless User cancels the account prior to the expiration of the applicable subscription period User’s account will automatically renew for another subscription period. For annual subscriptions paid on a monthly basis, Mixamo automatically bills User’s credit card each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of User’s subscription. In the event the account begins on a day not contained in a given month, Mixamo will bill User’s credit card on the last day of such month. For example, if User became a subscriber on January 31st, User’s account would next be billed on February 28th. To view the specific details of User’s subscription account, including if applicable price level, number of seats purchased, unused account credits, and end date of the applicable subscription period, click the “My Info” page. User’s subscription will continue in effect unless and until User cancels the subscription or the subscription is terminated by Mixamo. USER MUST CANCEL PRIOR TO THE END OF THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD TO AVOID CHARGES TO USER’S CREDIT CARD. User may cancel the account at any time by clicking on the “My Info” link.
By authorizing Mixamo to charge a credit card or other payment methods for the fees associated with User’s subscription, User is authorizing Mixamo to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the card issuer, and the issuer informs Mixamo of the new replacement card account) for all fees or charges associated with User’s subscription. User authorizes the card issuer to pay any amounts described herein and authorizes Mixamo, or any other company that acts as a billing agent for Mixamo, to continue to attempt to charge all sums described herein to User’s credit card account until such amounts are paid in full. User agrees to provide Mixamo updated information on User’s credit card upon Mixamo’s request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid. User agrees that if payment is not received by Mixamo from User’s credit card issuer or its agents, User agrees to pay all amounts due upon demand by Mixamo.
3.4 Subscription Price Changes.
Mixamo may at any time, upon notice required by applicable law, change the prices of the Mixamo annual subscription, any part of such subscriptions, or institute new charges or fees. Price changes and institution of new charges implemented during User’s subscription term will apply to subsequent subscription terms and to all new subscribers after the effective date of the change. If User does not agree to any such price changes, User must cancel the applicable subscription service and stop using the Services. User’s continued use of the Services after the effective date of any such change shall constitute User’s acceptance of such price changes.
4. Proprietary Rights.
Mixamo (or its licensors) retain all right, title and interest in and to the Software, Applications, Services, Website, Content, Animation Data, and any copies and any derivatives or modifications thereof, other than modifications made to the Animation Data as a part of preparing the Embedded Animation Data as provided in Section 2.4. User shall have no rights to modify or make derivative works of the Software, Applications, Services, Website, Content, Animation Data, other than the limited right granted in Section 2.4 to make modifications to the Animation Data as a part of preparing the Embedded Animation Data.

The resale or redistribution by User of any Animation Data is expressly prohibited unless it is Embedded Animated Data and such resale or redistribution is permitted pursuant to Section 2.4. User agrees not to (i) rent, lease, or transfer the Software or Applications and rent, lease, or commercialize in any other way (except as expressly permitted herein) the Animation Data; or (ii) export the Software, Applications, Services, or Animation Data in violation of U.N. embargoes or U.S. laws and regulations.
