License Agreement

I tried to make it as simple as possible.

Remove credit attribution forever

Buy a license key for the only 14,99€ and remove credit attribution forever.

Basic License

Before using the website yourfreesounds.com and downloading the sound files, you must agree to the following conditions. Do you have any questions regarding the use of the sounds? Then contact me!

All free sound effects (not the paid sounds and libraries) downloaded from yourfreesounds.com require attribution in the form of a credit/link back to this website in case they’re used publicly.

You can pick one of the following examples:

-> “Sound effects obtained from https://yourfreesounds.com

-> “Sound effects created by https://yourfreesounds.com

-> “Sound effects from https://yourfreesounds.com

When setting the credit link, always make sure that the link is clickable. This should be the case if you copy one of the examples above.

I created a page, where I give you some examples of how to credit.

SPECIAL CASE – TV, Film and Radio shows/programs, Music productions, Commercials, Offline Presentations, Live Shows, Theatrical performances, Conferences and Exhibitions:

Since none of these can link to a website, a backlink attribution is impossible (Should I be wrong with this thesis, please contact me!). I suggest you buy one of my affordable license keys in this case. If you can’t purchase a license for any reason, contact me and suggest your idea of how you would like to credit me.

Note: If you purchase one of my paid libraries or – single sounds, the necessity of credit attribution for those (!) paid sounds (not for the free sounds / free libraries) will be automatically removed.

You can’t or won’t credit us?

In case you can’t or don’t want to set a credit/link, it is possible to buy a license key for only 14,99€.

If you purchase a license key, this license key is limited to one person.

Companies, universities/schools, associations have to purchase a license key for every user.

Things you CAN do with the sound effects:

– You can use the sound effects forever and as often as you want.

– You can download the sound effects and save them on your computer or in the cloud.

-You can use the sound effects for all commercial as well as non-commercial projects and productions (limitation for third-party sounds that may appear in the background see below).

Here are some examples of what you can use the sounds for:

– TV, Film and Radio shows/programs

– Games

– Software

– Music productions

– Online Videos (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo etc.)

– Commercials

– Podcasts

– Websites

– Blogs

– Presentations

– Live Shows

– Theatrical performances

– Conferences

– Exhibitions

You can edit, mix and layer the sound effects with other sounds.

If you didn’t find the answer to a question about how to use the sounds, just contact me!

 

Things you CAN’T do with the sound effects:

-> Sell parts of the sounds or share them with others.

-> Call the sound effects your intellectual property.

-> Resell or share the sounds or libraries with other people. Tip: Share a link to the sound instead!

-> The sounds must not be the main purpose of your project (e.g. provided in an app for sound effects)

If you would like to offer or distribute my sound effects, or you have another great idea of how we could work together,  then contact me  on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or via my contact form. I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

Third Party Sounds

Yourfreesounds.com makes every effort to ensure that no third-party sounds appear in the background of the recordings. However, if any third party sounds occur, the specification of this license does not apply to those sounds, since yourfreesounds.com is not the owner or licenser. This license applies exclusively to sounds that do not contain background sounds from third parties. The customer uses the sounds at his own risk or takes precautionary measures by cutting out the corresponding sounds.
