Using Poliigon Assets
What are the guidelines for using Poliigon Assets and the Poliigon Web Application?
Poliigon’s license and Terms and Conditions of Service (TACOS) grant members the ability to make use of the products for personal, educational, or commercial purposes as long as those purposes are in accordance with member’s license type and do not violate TACOS, for example:
You may not resell, redistribute, or repackage the assets
You may not use the assets in a competitive use case
You may not use the assets to create a logo or trademark of any kind (Previously copyrighted logos and trademarks can be rendered using our assets, but that version may not be then copyrighted)
Can I use Poliigon Assets for commercial purposes?
Yes, provided the assets are purchased with a Subscription plan or On-demand credit pack that comes with a Commercial License (Professional plan, Team plan, or Credit Packs) and adhere to all other TACOS.
Examples of commercial purposes include Archviz client renders, marketing website images, product visualizations, YouTube videos, commercial video game development, etc.
If the assets can be accessed or extracted from your product, then you must include a text license containing the words “Contains assets from Poliigon.com - Assets may not be redistributed”.
Can I use the assets from the Free section for commercial purposes?
Assets from the Free section can be used for commercial purposes, like all other assets, provided you acquired them while subscribed to a plan that permits commercial use, such as Professional plan or Team plan. If you have previously downloaded assets on a Hobby plan and would like to upgrade them to allow commercial usage, please email us here.
Can I use the assets after my paid membership has ended?
Yes! Once you have downloaded them, you can use them when needed. However all usage, whether your subscription is active or expired, must fall within all of our TACOS and also within your plan's limits (eg. Hobby plans do not have a commercial license).
Can I use Poliigon assets in work licensed via Creative Commons/Open Source Software, game mods, game maps or game add-ons?
If any usage and redistribution of Poliigon assets are involved, then unfortunately no. This is explicitly prohibited by our Terms and Conditions.
Can I redistribute or resell Poliigon assets?
Unfortunately no. Redistribution of Poliigon assets is expressly prohibited by our TACOS. If you are interested in a Custom Studio License allowing for redistribution, please contact Support and tell us about your use case.
Can I modify textures and sell them as my own OR can I use textures to create a shader and sell the shader?
Unfortunately no. This is considered redistribution or competitive use and is expressly prohibited by our Terms and Conditions.
Can I embed Poliigon textures in my model or scene that I sell or redistribute?
Yes, provided your end product is not intended to be a bundled release of our textures (eg. creating a scene file that contains multiple Poliigon materials with the intention of it being a material library).
Can I embed Poliigon models into a scene that I sell or redistribute?
Unfortunately no. The Poliigon models in a project file usually attributes to a lot of it’s value, so we cannot allow redistribution of this kind.
