Copyright Policy and Content Usage Rights
Plain English summary: unless otherwise noted, no photos on this website are public domain. They are free for personal use. Free does not equal public domain.
This document outlines what end-users of the kickingdesigns.com website are legally permitted to do with content downloaded from this web site and how to contact the copyright holder to obtain legal permission for other types of usages.
All downloadable content hosted on the kickingdesigns.com servers is copyright by Timothy Borkowski unless otherwise stated. It is licensed only for personal use on computers, cellular phones, and other personal electronic devices. All other uses (whether or not for profit) including redistribution (with or without modification of the original work) is strictly prohibited by law without additional written permission by Timothy Borkowski.
If you wish to use copyrighted content from kickingdesigns.com in any manner other than described above, you MUST obtain written permission from Timothy Borkowski. You may do this by submitting an electronic request through the contact form found on kickingdesigns.com/contact.
It is important to note that Timothy Borkowski is not obligated to respond to your request for permission to redistribute, profit from, or otherwise use his content in a manner not granted in the license indicated above. If he does not explicitly grant you additional permissions (whether because he did not receive your request, ignored it, or denied it) you may NOT legally use his content in any non-licensed fashion.
Failure to respond to your request does NOT imply permission or indifference. It is not enough to simply give an artist ‘credit’ instead of obtaining legal permission.
You should never assume that freely-downloable content is free from copyright restrictions or in the public domain.
