3. Accepting this Agreement
This Agreement forms a legally binding contract between Provider and Unity, in relation to Provider's use of the Unity Asset Store to distribute Assets. In order to use the Unity Asset Store to distribute Assets, Provider must first agree to this Agreement by checking the box indicating Provider’s acceptance of this Agreement prior to distributing Assets on the Unity Asset Store. Provider may not distribute Assets on the Unity Asset Store if Provider does not accept this Agreement.
Any person who enters into this Agreement on behalf of Provider represents and warrants that he has full legal authority to bind Provider.
Provider expressly accepts and agrees that Unity shall be entitled to forward Providers name, address and other contact details to any third Party that reasonably claims that Provider does not have all necessary intellectual property rights, including all necessary patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights, in and to Provider's Assets.
4. Pricing and Payments
This Agreement covers both Assets that Provider chooses to distribute for free and Assets for which Provider charges a fee. All fees for Assets distributed via the Unity Asset Store must be processed by the Payment Processor.
Provider may set the price for Provider's Assets in US Dollars (USD). For practical purposes all prices shall be fixed by Provider at full USD amounts. (For example prices set at 5.99 USD may not be applied). The Unity Asset Store may display to Customers the price of Provider's Assets in USD or other currencies that Unity may consider expedient. Unity may choose to set different prices in other currencies, and shall not be responsible for the accuracy of the prices set, or for currency and conversion rates.
The prices that Provider sets for Assets or the prices that Unity sets in other currencies than USD (cf. clause 4.2), whichever is applicable, will determine the amount of payment Provider will receive. 70 (seventy) percent of the sales price (less any refunds, bank fees related to the transfer to the Provider and less any taxes, levies and VAT or the like) will be remitted by Unity to the Provider. The remaining 30 (thirty) percent will be allotted to and retained by Unity.
PayPal Accounts Paid Monthly. The parties agree that any balance in favor of Provider will be calculated by Unity and made available to Provider via a web page. Unity will use reasonable efforts to pay Provider the applicable balance on a monthly basis as long as Provider provides and maintains a valid PayPal account.
Check or Wire Payments Paid Quarterly. If Provider fails to provide a valid PayPal account, Unity will pay balances above USD 250 to Provider on a quarterly basis by check or wire payment, less applicable bank fees. However, any such account balance in favor in of Provider of less than 250 USD at the end of a calendar quarter will not be paid. Instead, such balance below 250 USD will be carried forward to the following calendar quarter. In the event that the balance for a period of eight consecutive calendar quarters remains below 250 USD, then Unity will pay such balance to Provider, less any bank fees related to the transfer to the Provider. The current applicable bank fees for check or wire payments are set forth in the Asset Store.
Provider is solely responsible for payment of any taxes, levies and VAT or the like on any payments it receives from Unity regardless of which taxing jurisdiction that has the authority to collect such taxes, levies and VAT or the like.
Provider may also choose to distribute Assets for free. If the Asset is free, Unity shall not be entitled to receive the 30 (thirty) per cent listed in Section 4.3 above. Provider may not in the future collect charges from Customers for copies of the Assets that those Customers previously downloaded for free.
4.6 Special Refund Requirements
The Payment Processor's standard terms and conditions regarding refunds will apply except the following terms apply to Provider's distribution of Assets on the Unity Asset Store:
Assets that can be previewed by the Customer (such as static pictures): No refund is required or allowed other than Assets that violate this Agreement or are taken down pursuant to this Agreement.
Assets that cannot be previewed by the Customer (such as software): Provider authorizes Unity to give the Customer a full refund of the Asset price if the Customer requests the refund within 2 (two) weeks after purchase.
In the event that a Customer returns any Asset and/or receives a refund, all license rights granted herein terminate and under the EULA and the Customer will be instructed to immediately destroy any and all copies contained on any type of media under the control or possession of the Customer.
4.7 Provider Support
Provider will be solely responsible for support and maintenance of Provider's Assets and any complaints about Provider's Assets. Provider's contact information will be displayed in each Asset detail page and made available to Customers for customer support purposes.
Failure to provide adequate support for Provider's Assets may result in low Asset ratings, less prominent Asset exposure, low sales and billing disputes. In the event of disputes for Assets sold for less than 50 USD, Unity may at Provider's expense decide that the full purchase price shall be refunded to the Customer and charged back in full to the Provider, in addition to any handling fees charged by the Payment Processor. Chargeback requests for Assets sold at 50 USD or more will be handled in accordance with the Payment Processor's standard policy.
Provider acknowledges and agrees that Customers that have licensed an Asset will have the ability to access and download the Asset for as long as the Asset is available on the Asset Store. Customer’s use of the Asset shall remain subject to the EULA.
Providers of free Assets may request and accept indirect donations for their work, provided that the following conditions are complied with:
Donations shall be handled via the Provider’s own payment transaction system on their own website.
Provider's free Assets may not have a special enhanced version of this Asset which Provider markets outside of the Unity Asset Store (and thus circumventing the payment in favor of Unity, as specified in 4.3 above.
Assets themselves may not explicitly mention, prompt or request donations when embedded in a built Unity project (executable, browser game, etc.) nor in the editor if it uses editor classes.
Donation requests shall be mentioned by use of the text: “donations accepted” on the Asset’s Asset Store page/description itself.
5. Use of the Unity Asset Store by Provider
Except for the license rights granted by Provider in Section 6 below, Unity agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from Provider (or Provider's licensors) under this Agreement in or to any Asset supplied by Provider, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in those Assets.

If the Customers provide Provider with, or Provider's Assets access or use, Customer names, passwords, or other login information or personal information, Provider must make the Customers aware that the information will be available to Provider, and Provider must provide a legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those Customers. Further, Provider may only use that information for the limited purposes for which the Customer has given Provider permission to do so. If Provider's Assets store personal or sensitive information provided by Customers, it must do so securely and only for as long as it is needed and in full compliance with any applicable law regarding Provider's access or use of such information. But if the Customer has opted into a separate agreement with Provider that allows Provider or Provider's Asset to store or use personal or sensitive information directly related to Provider's Asset then the terms of that separate agreement and any applicable privacy laws will govern Provider's use of such information.

APPENDIX 1 - ASSET STORE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
1. Parties to the Agreement/ The Subject Matter of the Agreement:
This Unity Asset Store End User License Agreement (hereinafter referred to as “EULA”) is a non-exclusive, legally binding end user license agreement between any individual or a single entity (“END-USER”) that acquires an Asset from the Unity Asset Store and either (i) Unity Technologies APS (company no. 30 71 99 13), Vendersgade 28, DK-1363 Copenhagen, Denmark (“Licensor” or "Unity"), or as the case may be (ii) any third party (“Provider”) that distributes its Assets from the Unity Asset Store. Consequently, this EULA shall apply regardless of whether a purchased Asset is produced by Unity or by a Provider ("Licensor"). This EULA is therefore a non-exclusive, legally binding end user license agreement as the case may be between either (i) Unity and END-User (in which case the term "Licensor" shall refer to Unity), or (ii) Provider and End User (in which case the term "Licensor" shall refer to Provider).
Iy installing, copying, accessing, downloading or otherwise using the Assets, End User agrees to be bound the provisions of this EULA. All definitions of the Terms shall also apply in this EULA unless the context clearly provides for a different understanding.
The subject matter of this EULA is the licensing to END-USER of any Asset acquired by End User from the Unity Asset Store. The Assets are licensed, not sold.
END USER hereby acknowledges that in the event it acquires an ASSET which in the Unity Asset Store is marked as an Asset which is distributed by Provider (as opposed to Unity), then Provider shall be considered as Licensor of such Asset and, consequently, only Provider (as opposed to Unity) shall be responsible for any liability whatsoever under, any EULA or any breach by Provider, including (without limitation) liability for infringement of any intellectual property rights, irrespective of the fact that payment takes place to Unity.
2. END-USER's Rights and Obligations
END-USER may use the licensed Assets only for their intended purpose.
Licensor grants to the END-USER a non-exclusive, worldwide, and perpetual license to the Asset to integrate Assets only as incorporated and embedded components of electronic games and interactive media and distribute such electronic game and interactive media. Except for game services software development kits (“Services SDKs”), END-USERS may modify Assets. END-USER may otherwise not reproduce, distribute, sublicense, rent, lease or lend the Assets. It is emphasized that the END-USERS shall not be entitled to distribute or transfer in any way (including, without, limitation by way of sublicense) the Assets in any other way than as integrated components of electronic games and interactive media. Without limitation of the foregoing it is emphasized that END-USER shall not be entitled to share the costs related to purchasing an Asset and then let any third party that has contributed to such purchase use such Asset (forum pooling).
EXCEPT FOR EDITOR EXTENSION ASSETS, END-USER is granted a license to install and use Assets on an unlimited number of computers provided that these computers are either all (i) physically located at a single physical location ("Site") belonging to END-USER, or (ii) laptops belonging to END-USER which have been made available by END-USER to its employees that are employed at the same Site provided all such computers have appropriately licensed Unity software installed. Consequently, any Asset may only be used at particular Site or on computers assigned to END-USER's employees employed at the same Site and may only be moved to another Site subject to prior written approval from Licensor. THIS CLAUSE 2.3 DOES NOT APPLY TO ASSETS THAT IN THE UNITY ASSET STORE ARE CATEGORIZED UNDER THE HEADING "EDITOR EXTENSIONS."
Editor Extensions: END-USER is granted a license to install and use any Assets which are categorized in the Asset Store as "Editor Extensions" only on one (1) computer.
