4.1. License of Magento Marketplace Extensions
The software Extensions made available through the Magento Marketplace are licensed, not sold, to you. The Extensions have been developed, and are licensed to you, by a third-party Developer.
Your license to each Developer’s Extension is subject to the licensed Extension end user license agreement entered into between you and the Developer of that Extension. The Extension Developer reserves all rights in and to the Extension not expressly granted to you. You acknowledge that you are acquiring the license to each third-party Extension from the Developer. The Developer of each Extension is solely responsible for that Extension, the content therein, any warranties to the extent that such warranties have not been disclaimed, and any claims that you or any other party may have relating to that Extension.
You acknowledge and agree that Magento is a third-party beneficiary of the Developer’s end user license agreement. You also agree that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license to any such Extension, Magento will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof. Magento has no obligation to provide updates or upgrades to the Developer’s Extension.
4.2. License Restrictions
You may auto-download an Extension only once; and after being downloaded, it cannot be replaced. You may not make copies, translations, or modifications of or to the Extensions. You may not alter, obscure, or remove the copyright notice on any copy of the Extensions. You may not assign, sell, distribute, lease, rent, sublicense, or transfer the Extensions, nor may you use the Extensions in a manner that disrupts the operation of any associated services or otherwise in a manner that was intended (for example, by engaging in any unlawful activity through the Extensions).
You are responsible for properly configuring and using the Extensions and taking your own steps to maintain appropriate security, protection and backup of your Content, which may include the use of encryption technology to protect your Content from unauthorized access and routine archiving of your Content.
4.3. Our Right to use Your Content
We may use your Content in a number of different ways, including publicly displaying it, reformatting it, incorporating it into advertisements and other works, creating derivative works from it, promoting it, and distributing it. As such, you hereby grant us the following licenses:
- a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid-up, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense through multiple levels of sublicenses, under your intellectual property rights, to make, use, have made, sell, offer to sell, copy, reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, digitally transmit, modify, create derivative works of, import, and otherwise exploit, any suggestions or feedback you provide to us that result in modifications, improvements or enhancements to the Magento Marketplace.

You agree that you will pay for all Extensions you purchase through the Magento Marketplace, and that Magento may charge your payment method for any Extensions purchased and for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be accrued by or in connection with your account. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PAYMENT OF ALL FEES AND FOR PROVIDING MAGENTO WITH A VALID PAYMENT METHOD FOR PAYMENT OF ALL FEES.
Your total price will include the price of the Extension plus any applicable tax; such tax is based on the bill-to address and the tax rate in effect at the time you download the Extension.
Prices for Extensions offered via the Magento Marketplace may change at any time, and Magento does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
6. Refunds and Credits

You will have twenty-five (25) days from the date of delivery of the Extension to request a refund. Magento has discretion to issue a credit or refund to you in the event that Magento determines that such credit or refund is appropriate.
If an Extension becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is a refund. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of your Extension, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement or refund of the price paid, as determined by Magento.

The personal information, which you give to Magento when registering for Magento Marketplace or placing any order for Extensions will be used in connection with your use of the Magento Marketplace or fulfilling your order, and will be transferred to and maintained in Magento’s records in the United States.

You agree that this Agreement and all incorporated agreements may be automatically assigned by Magento in accordance with Section 19 "Notices", in our sole discretion. This Agreement will bind your successors but may not be assigned, in whole or part, by you without the written approval of an authorized representative of Magento. Any non-conforming assignment shall be null and void. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between us with respect to the subject matter hereof.
The parties hereto confirm that they have requested, acknowledge, and agree that this Agreement and all attachments and related documents be drafted in English.
