License

This is an End User License Agreement (Agreement) between Adaptive Themes and you (Licensee). When referring to both Adaptive Themes and Licensee as a collective, the term, “The Parties”, may be used.

The Gist

You can use any theme as much or as often as you like, modify it, and use it in your clients websites. Don't resell it (i.e. on another site selling themes), don't claim authorship and stick to the requirements of GPL and you'll be right.

The Full Version

For the purposes of this Agreement, the Parties agree that the following terms have these meanings:

  • "Open Source Software" means any software program, whose source code is made available for use and modification as users or other developers see fit, and which may resultantly be the collaborative work of many different developers.
  • “GPL” means General Public License, Version 2, as stated in the software license as drafted by Richard Stallman and as accepted within the Open Source Software community as the controlling software license for Open Source Software (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/).
  • "Drupal" means the Open Source Software content management platform, as written in the PHP programming language, and as referred to in the software development industry as Drupal (www.drupal.org), and as covered by the GPL.
  • "Theme" means a website template as developed using Drupal as well as parts designed outside of Drupal, including, but not limited to graphics, stylesheets (CSS files), and Javascript coding, which is purchased or otherwise used by Licensee.
  • "Derivative Works" means any work on a Theme that was developed using Drupal constructs, typically considered the PHP template files, and which are subject to the GPL as a result.
