Site Content Guidelines for All Members

Creative Market Guidelines Overview

By operating a shop, becoming an Affiliate Partner, or creating an account on Creative Market, you agree to abide by our legal terms. This includes our usage, user specific, privacy, and licensing terms.

Please read them carefully—they are designed to keep our members safe and happy.

In addition to the legal terms mentioned above, we’ve developed site Guidelines (see below) and Best Practices in order to help everyone have the best experience possible on Creative Market.

What is the difference between the Terms of Use, User Specific Terms, Licenses, Guidelines, and Best Practices?

  1. Terms of Use, User Specific Terms (Affiliate Terms, Shop Owner Terms, etc.), and Licenses: These are legal agreements that you enter into with Creative Market when you create your account and/or open a shop on Creative Market. Failure to adhere to these will result in the termination of your account, closure of your shop (if you are a Shop Owner), and could also result in legal action.

  2. Guidelines: While not legal agreements, Guidelines are mandates that Creative Market has for site users. Failure to adhere to these Guidelines may result in the termination of your account. For Shop Owners, failure to adhere to the Guidelines could also result in the closure of your shop, removal of one or more of your products, and/or refunded sales.

  3. Best Practices: These are not mandatory, but the best and most successful Creative Market members adhere to these practices. These Best Practices are especially important for Shop Owners, and we encourage Shop Owners to follow them. As a Shop Owner, following Best Practices can contribute to your success on the Creative Market platform, and also helps your customers have a great experience with your shop and products.

Posting not safe for work (NSFW) material, discriminatory content, or spam is strictly prohibited, as is trolling, making defamatory comments toward other users, creating posts that encourage illegal activity (such as posting links to pirate sites), or knowingly posting inaccurate information.

Creative Market reserves the right to moderate all content and may remove anything that includes prohibited content, without notice. If you see prohibited content on the site, please let us know by contacting us here.

Members of Creative Market may not attempt to collect user information or contact other members unsolicited for any matters unrelated to Creative Market. In addition, users are prohibited from using the site messaging system to send unsolicited mass messages to other Creative Market users.
