4. 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;

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.

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;
