This is a legal agreement between you, the Purchaser, and the Licensor (Iconfinder ApS). Purchasing or downloading of any icon or icons pack (Licensed Material), constitutes your acceptance of the terms of this agreement if it is clearly noted that the Extended license applies for the specific purchase.

The following examples, on how to use or not to use Licensed Material purchased under the Extended License, are based on frequently asked questions from other users.

The Licensed material can be resold as part of mass distributed digital products

When you buy an icon, you gain the right to use it in commercial and non-commercial projects. You can use it for your own or your client's website, app, presentation, etc. The Extended license grants you the right to resell the icons as a part of your product. However, selling the icons individually or as icon packs is not allowed. The icons must be sold as a part of your own product. The icons cannot be the product itself.

You are, for example, free to use the icons in a SaaS analytics dashboard product you sell to customers. You can use the icons e.g. in a dashboard Bootstrap UI theme that you sell on a theme marketplace. The Extended license gives you the rights to resell the icons as part of digital products like:

  • Themes

  • UI-kits

  • Software frameworks

  • In-app purchase icon packs

The  icons can be used on merchandise for sale

Using the icons on T-shirts and other types of physical products is fine, and under the Extended license reselling these products is permitted. You can print an icon on a T-shirt for yourself, a client, or for internal use in your company. You are allowed to print the icons on a shirt and then resell the shirt as a product.

The icons cannot be trademarked

Neither the Extended license nor the Basic license permits the icons to be trademarked which means that icons are not suitable for logos.
