Cargo End User License Agreement FAQ

Q: What can I use Cargo Pro assets for?

A: Cargo assets can be used in various personal or commercial projects, including:

  • Film / TV

  • Video Games

  • Commercials / Advertisements

  • Architectural Visualization

  • Interactive Experiences

  • NFTs

You can deliver final images or videos featuring KitBash3D assets but may not distribute 3D scenes with available or editable assets.

Usage restrictions:

  • NOT for training data or connection with machine learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI).

  • NOT for platforms where assets are distributed as purchasable or modifiable.

  • NOT for distribution that allows unlicensed or unauthorized access to Cargo assets.

  • NOT for use by individuals working as an employee of a multi-employee company.

Q: Do I lose rights to the things I made with Cargo if I cancel my subscription?

A: No. Canceling your Cargo Subscription has no effect on the rights of works you have created. During your subscription you are granted a license to use Cargo Assets in any Large Work. Larger Work is defined as:

(i) Larger Works must include substantial additional content and/or imagery in addition to the Assets; and (ii) an Asset may only be used in the Larger Work for which it was originally imported from the Cargo Platform. The removal of an Asset from the original Larger Work to a new or different Larger Work is expressly prohibited.

This means that during your subscription you are free to create as many projects you would like using Cargo Assets. After your subscription ends you would be able to continue working on Larger Works already in progress, release a Large Work that was created prior to your subscription ending, and continue to promote/monetize Larger Works created during your subscription.

Once you cancel, you can no longer create new Larger Works with Cargo Assets. Additionally, you wouldn’t be able to transfer the Cargo Assets from one Larger Work into another project.

The relevant section of our EULA is 3.2.3:

The license rights in Section 3.1 are granted during the Term only. However, for any Assets that you properly incorporated as part of a Larger Works pursuant to the license rights granted to you in Section 3.1 above, you may, following the Term, continue to use and display those Assets as part of the Larger Work in the same manner in which those Assets were incorporated as part of the Larger Work prior to termination.

Q: Do I need to maintain the subscription after I have released my work?

A: No. Cargo grants you the rights to use Cargo Assets in your Larger Works. Larger Work is defined as:

(i) Larger Works must include substantial additional content and/or imagery in addition to the Assets; and (ii) an Asset may only be used in the Larger Work for which it was originally imported from the Cargo Platform. The removal of an Asset from the original Larger Work to a new or different Larger Work is expressly prohibited.

You will retain the rights to these works after the subscription ends. So, you would be free to continue monetizing and promoting any Larger Work that was created properly during your subscription.

Q: I am a Solo Game Dev or Solopreneur, can I use Cargo Pro?

A: Yes. A company of one person working independently or an individual can use Cargo Pro for both Commercial and Personal use.

The relevant section of our EULA is 2.1.3 a:

Cargo Pro is intended for single individual users and/or entities consisting of a single owner or principle. Users having multiple owners or principles and/or having multiple employees and/or independent contractors working on their behalf are ineligible for Cargo Pro.

Q: Can I use Cargo Assets for Commercial Purposes?

A: Cargo Pro and Teams plans grant commercial use while Cargo Basic and Personal does not.

All licenses do have some restrictions around the type of content you can make though. For example, you cannot use our models to train AI.

The relevant section of our EULA is 3.2.2

The Assets may be used by you as part of images, videos and/or interactive experiences which you create separate and apart from the Assets (“Larger Work(s)”). You acknowledge and agree that: (i) Larger Works must include substantial additional content and/or imagery in addition to the Assets; and (ii) an Asset may only be used in the Larger Work for which it was originally imported from the Cargo Platform. The removal of an Asset from the original Larger Work to a new or different Larger Work is expressly prohibited.
