Terms of Service – BLACKBEE 3D LTD.
Last Revision: April 2, 2020
Welcome! We’re Black Bee 3D. Nice to meet you.
BLACKBEE 3D LTD. (“Black Bee 3D”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) allows members (“you”) to purchase 3D models (the “items”). When you create an account and accept these terms you become a member. You will have a Black Bee 3D account that will allow you to buy items on our website.
As such, you agree to follow the rules outlined in these terms so please read them carefully and understand them. If you don’t accept the terms, you cannot use our service. Use of Black Bee 3D is conditional on your acceptance to be bound by these terms whether you become a member or not.
- Age: You need to be 18 years or over to become a member or to buy items. If you’re under 18 you will need to get a parent or guardian to buy items or use the account of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age, with their permission, and this adult will be responsible for all your activities.
- Black Bee 3D Account: Signing up for a membership is free, but your eligibility is not guaranteed (please see section 4 below). Your membership will allow you to buy items from us.
- Accurate and Up-to-date Information: You promise that information you give us is true, accurate and complete and, if you sign up for a Black Bee 3D account, that you will keep your account information up-to-date (including a current email address). Your membership is not transferable, that means you cannot sell your account. You are responsible for any use of our site including any activity that occurs in conjunction with your username and password, if you have a Black Bee 3D account, so keep your password secure and don’t let any other person use your username or password. If you realize there’s any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security you need to let us know immediately. You must not use a virtual private network or any other means to avoid compliance with these Terms of Service, or for any fraudulent or illegal reasons.
- Eligibility, suspension or termination: Membership is not an automatic right, it is a benefit for members who follow our terms and policies. We may, using reasonable discretion, decide whether or not your use of Black Bee 3D complies with these terms and our policies. We can suspend or terminate your account at any time for any reason (acting reasonably of course), including if you:
- breach these terms or any terms applicable to any of your other Black Bee 3D accounts;
- breach any of our policies;
- act in a way that does not align with our values; or
- act in a way that could cause us or members harm.
……….If we do decide to permanently terminate your account you must not apply for a new account.
- Blocking a member, disabling an account or refusing to process a payment.We may block you, terminate any of your accounts or refuse to process a payment, including withholding your account balance indefinitely, if we reasonably believe there is a risk associated with you, your account, or that payment, including if it breaches a law or regulation. Examples of where we might do this include transactions where we suspect the payment is from or to a person or country sanctioned by an authority; or where we reasonably believe there is a legal or regulatory risk or a risk of loss being suffered by us or our members. You warrant that you are not located in a sanctioned country and are not on a sanctioned persons list. You also warrant that you will not purchase items on Black Bee 3D using funds sourced from a sanctioned country. We may also block members from a country if we can’t make payments to or from that country. You should check what payment methods are available in your country for making payments as a buyer or for withdrawing earnings as an author. We may take any of the actions stated in this section without notice and against all of your accounts you use. If required by law we may forfeit existing deposits or earnings.
- License: When you buy an item, you acquire a license to use that item; you’re not actually acquiring the item itself. Your purchase of one of our items constitutes our granting to you of a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to download and access that item for the purpose of your own personal or professional use, depending on the license you chose, including to print or convert the product to an image or other format for your own storage, retention and reference. You agree that under no circumstances shall you use, or permit to be used, any product other than for the aforesaid purpose. For the avoidance of doubt, you shall not copy, re-sell, sublicense, rent out, share or otherwise distribute any of our products, whether modified or not, to any third party. You agree not to use any of our products in a way which might be detrimental to us or damage our reputation.

- we do not promise that any particular item will continue to be available on Black Bee 3D so you should download and save the item as soon as you buy it;
- we are not responsible for anything not listed or another parameter that is not even considered in the description of the item that you have licensed. For example, item descriptions will often have specific sizes – please ensure the size is suitable for your needs;
- once you buy or download an item and the item has been paid for, you acquire a non-exclusive license to use the item under the terms set out in section 6 above for the scope of the license (non-exclusive means others might also license the same item);
- you are not the owner of the item – we retain ownership of the item;
- your relevant details may be provided to us or third-party service providers in order to facilitate the transaction, for example for invoicing and payment; and

We may collect geographical location information to determine your location, which may be used for tax purposes (so location information you give us must be accurate for tax residency purposes).
- Price Correction and Up-to-date Information: Despite our reasonable efforts, items may occasionally be listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information. If this happens, we may cancel or reverse a transaction, even after it is completed and a payment has been processed. If we do this, we’ll promptly arrange for any payment to be credited or refunded and you must not use the item unless you re-purchase it at the correct price.
- Refunds: Given the nature of digital content, we cannot provide a refund or credit on any item purchase. All sales of items are final – you agree that any payments made by you for any of our items are final and may not be charged back.
- Defective Items: If you think an item that you purchased is defective (see Defective Items Policy) , we will do our best to fix or replace it as soon as possible.
