The content and materials contained in this website may be protected by applicable copyright and trademark law, whether associated with Ghost Plugins or other third-parties.
2. Plugin Unlimited Use License
Ghost Plugins offers an every growing library of free plugins and code that may be used with any Squarespace website. Plugins are submitted by third-parties and are reviewed and tested prior to being added to the website.
When using plugins, you are given permission to:
download and use each plugin an unlimited amount of times;
edit, modify or copy any of the plugins for the purpose of customizing;
use any plugins for personal or commercial use;
use for any personal or commercial use, without the requirement to credit or link the original contributor;
3. Code At Your Risk
By using Ghost Plugins, you agree that you are coding at your own risk and that we take no responsible for damages caused to any website.
4. Plugin Contributor Agreement
Third-party plugin submissions are proudly welcomed and are reviewed and uploaded to the Ghost Plugins website after testing and verification. Each contributor that submits a plugin will be credited, linked, and featured in the designers page. However, submitting a plugin does not guarantee approval.
By submitting plugins to Ghost Plugins, you agree and acknowledge that:
Your plugin was not purchased from a plugin store, designer or design agency;
Your plugin is not of someone else’s copyrighted work;
If your plugin is of someone else’s work, I have written permission from the original creator to distribute it;
Your plugin will be available for free on Ghost Plugins;
Users are given the option to pay what they want and donate in return for receiving the plugin for free;
You will not receive any type of compensation for my plugin submission, number of downloads, or plugin purchases through the donate / pay what you want option;
Funds from plugin purchases are donated to a 501(c)(3) organization by the request of the user;
Your submitted plugin can be used for both personal and commercial projects and can be modified, changed, or removed at any time;
Submission does not guarantee the plugin will be approved and added to the Ghost Plugins website;
The plugin functions properly on the Squarespace platform, will not cause damage to any Squarespace website, and does not violate any of Squarespace's terms of service;
If the plugin no longer works or becomes “broken”, Ghost Plugins may contact me to fix the broken plugin without compensation;
I may voluntarily provide a solution to resolve any issues related to my submitted plugins but I am in no way required to;
If a plugin remains broken, it and my credit will be removed from the Ghost Plugins website;
I may be held liable if I knowingly submit someone else’s copyrighted work and represent it as my own;
Ghost Plugins does not take responsibility for any copyright infringement caused by my submission as they hope in good faith I am submitting my own original work.
5. Copyright Violations
Ghost Plugins respects the work of all and expects those who contribute to do the same. While we hope in good faith contributors submit their own original work, we still take the necessary steps to try to prevent submissions that violate our policy and cannot take responsibility for the actions of those who submit work that is not theirs. If any content or material is found to be in violation of this policy, it will be immediately removed from the Ghost Plugins website and the individual who submitted the violating content will be notified. Based on the severity of the violation, Ghost Plugins reserves the right to permanently removed violators and their content from the Ghost Plugins website and enforce a restriction from contributing to Ghost Plugins in the future.
If you feel certain content or material on the Ghost Plugins website is in violation of our policy, contact us using the details below. Any and all copyright infringement notices filed are also subject to the Squarespace Copyright Policy as Ghost Plugins is hosted on the Squarespace platform.
6. Donate Policy
Although not a requirement, users may choose to donate (also know as “pay what you want”, “plugin based purchase”) in return for downloading and using any free content or material, with plugins being the most common. Funds from plugin based purchases are donated to a 501(c)(3) organization by the request of the user. In no way will Ghost Plugins retain funds for their own gain or profit. However, Ghost Plugins does reserve the right to retain a certain amount from plugin based purchases for the purpose of covering credit card processing fees and/or taxes owed from the transactions. Plugin based purchases are considered a general sale and cannot be reported as a tax deduction by the user.
All payments are in USD ($) currency and processed securely online through Stripe.
Service: Acting as a type of design service, Ghost templates offers premium template designs for use within the Squarespace platform. Templates are installed for the user and can edited within the Squarespace platform, but are in no way designed, affiliated, sponsored, or endorsed by Squarespace.
Installation: To receive your template, you must provide a valid email address associated with an active Squarespace account. Templates are installed within 24 hours after purchase via site permission, which are processed and sent to the user’s Squarespace associated email. Once approved, the user will be able to edit, modify, and add in their own content as they normally would within the Squarespace platform without activating developer mode but may contain a unspecified amount of CSS, which assists in the design of the template. You are not required to edit, modify, or change the CSS, but are invited to edit, modify, or change it to your liking. Most other changes can be done within the site styles settings. We do not ask for any login credentials to your Squarespace account before, during, or after installation.
Trial Squarespace Accounts: Templates are built within trial Squarespace accounts which will require activation on a Squarespace monthly or annual plan after installation. Some templates may have been built prior to purchase causing lesser trial days than others.
Paid Squarespace Accounts: Templates are designed to work with the Squarespace Personal Plan (Squarespace’s lowest priced plan as of June 13, 2019). You will be responsible for all costs related to your Squarespace account – this includes domains, hosting, monthly plans, annual plans, email accounts, etc.
Template Content: Each template includes their own design content, style pack, CSS style sheet, and other content. Unless specified, images and icons used within a template’s demo must be replaced upon site permission approval and are strictly used for illustrative purposes. By purchasing a template, you agree to delete and replace this content with your own.
8. Templates One Time Use License
Acting as a type of design service, Ghost templates offers premium “template” designs to those that use the Squarespace platform for their projects. Each template is installed and transfered into your Squarespace account.
By using and purchasing a template, you agree to the following:
Each template purchased comes with a one-time use license;
Each template can only be used once;
If needed for more than one project, the template must be purchased again for each additional project;
Templates may be used for both personal and commercial use;
Templates cannot be resold outside of the Ghost Plugins website;
You may not claim ownership, distribute, or share any template, its styles or asset;
You may not duplicate or clone a template in the attempt to avoid an additional purchase;
You may credit yourself as the “website designer” on any template (example: Website Designed by “Jane Doe”);
The “Template Design by Ghost Plugins” credit must remain linked and visible at the bottom of the website;
Plugin Support: Plugins are submitted by third-parties and support can be limited. If you are having issues with a plugin, please contact us using the details below. We will try our best to resolve and fix any broken plugins but cannot guarantee a fix or solution.
Template Support: Template support is offered to anyone who has purchased a template within the first 6 months. During the template support period, we can help with:
Issues with the original template design;
Issues with the original index elements, page elements, assets, and css code;
Issues related directly to the template itself;
Any files that were included with the template;
Resolving general bugs or fixes caused by a Squarespace platform update;
Whether during or outside the template support period, we cannot help with:
Connecting a domain or social media;
Adding your content to the template;
Creating new pages or elements;
Modifying the CSS code to your specifications;
General Squarespace platform inquires;
Third party plugins;
Squarespace platform issues;
Issues caused by user customization or modifications;

11. Ghost Share Affiliate Program
We're excited that you're interested in becoming a Ghost Affiliate through our Ghost Share Affiliate Program.
As a Ghost Affiliate you can enjoy these perks:
20% commission for each template sold using your referral link
10% discount on any template for your own projects
10% discount code to share with others
Payouts on the 1st of each month
Payouts sent directly to your PayPal or Venmo account
A few things to keep in mind:
Program is completely free to join.
You must be 18 years or older to become an affiliate.
At this time, only those who live in the United States or Canada may become an affiliate – we may expand our availability in the future.
Those who apply and do not live in either the Unites States or Canada will be denied access to the affiliate program.
Program approval is not guaranteed and can be denied for any reason.
Payouts are processed and issued in USD $ currency.
All commissions and payouts are calculated from the final sale price.
If a discount or coupon code was applied during checkout, the incentive and payout will be calculated from the final discounted sale price.
You must provide an active PayPal or Venmo account to receive payouts.
A 60 day cookie is generated between the last click and the conversion – this helps track and credit the correct affiliate for any purchases.
Any purchases made prior or after the 60 day cookie has expired or without any type of referral link will not be credited to any affiliate.
You are required to share your referral link for incentives to be credited – this link can be found under “Assets” within your affiliate dashboard.
Any commissions associated with a refunded or disputed purchase may be reversed, withheld, or denied.
Charity donations, pay what you want purchases, or any other non-template purchases DO NOT qualify and will be denied any type of incentive or commission.
Commission percentages can increase or decrease at anytime, with or without notice.
Income Earned and Taxes: United States based affiliates will be required by law to complete a W9 tax form if more than $600 is earned within a full calendar year. If $600 or more is earned within a full calendar year without a W9 form on file for the affiliate, we reserve the right to withheld any earnings until the W9 form has been completed and submitted. Canada based affiliates may also be required to complete the appropriate tax forms in relation to their earnings. Whether you are an affiliate based in the United States or Canada, you acknowledge and agree that you will be responsible for any taxes owed from any income earned through the affiliate program. Moov Labs and Ghost Plugins are not responsible for taking any taxes out of your earnings.
Removal and Banning: You can be removed from the affiliate program for any reason. If at anytime we feel you may be fraudulently using or abusing the affiliate program, you will be immediately removed from the program and denied future participation. We reserve the right to also deny any future payouts and to pursue legal action if necessary. We hope in good faith that all affiliate participants utilize the program as intended and not for their own personal gain. Please do not ruin this program for others.
Tapfiliate: The affiliate program is created and managed through Tapfiliate (tapfiliate.com). We are no way responsible for any issues or errors caused by Tapfiliate or its platform that may affect tracking, conversion, and/or payouts.
Changes To This Program: The affiliate program, its incentives, and incentive percentage are not guaranteed, which means that we reserve the right to change, modify, revise, or cancel the Ghost Share Affiliate Program at anytime.

2. Legal bases for processing
We will process your personal information lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. We collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so.
These legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them, meaning we collect and use your information only where:
it’s necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract (for example, when we provide a service you request from us);
it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote our services, and to protect our legal rights and interests;
you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose (for example, you might consent to us sending you our newsletter); or
we need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
Where you consent to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time (but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place).
We don’t keep personal information for longer than is necessary. While we retain this information, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure and cannot guarantee absolute data security. If necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal obligation or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

We will ensure that any transfer of personal information from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA will be protected by appropriate safeguards, for example by using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission, or the use of binding corporate rules or other legally accepted means.
Where we transfer personal information from a non-EEA country to another country, you acknowledge that third parties in other jurisdictions may not be subject to similar data protection laws to the ones in our jurisdiction. There are risks if any such third party engages in any act or practice that would contravene the data privacy laws in our jurisdiction and this might mean that you will not be able to seek redress under our jurisdiction’s privacy laws.
