  1. Hey, I have a question regarding the license.
    I’m planning on using it with personal use only in mind so it does not concern me that much, yet I found some contradicting statements…

    In the word template itself is stated “You are allowed to use and modify this template for your PERSONAL USE ONLY”.
    One sentence further we are informed to read “Important Notes” … yet there the statement is “You are allowed to use, modify or to recreate this content for your personal or commercial use. Attribution is not mandatory […]”

    Just wanting to clarify what is correct here.


    • Sorry about the confusion! All our templates are completely free and we just ask to include our website Name & URL on your final work when you print books using our templates. This is not a mandatory requirement either but it helps us to grow and create more such free templates. In a nutshell, you are allowed to use our templates for formatting your books even if you’re commercially printing & selling them. In case of any other question, please feel free to ask us! Thank you.
