After successful verification, the Design Partner will receive confirmation from Pattern Design and be registered by Pattern Design as Design Partner. After the successful registration the Design Partner may transmit its designs to Pattern Design for selling. After the designs are reviewed by Pattern Design in accordance with the pattern specs (standards of quality) the designs are activated by Pattern Design for sale.
Pattern Design reserves the right to select its Design Partners.
The Design Partner has the opportunity to use an additional, worldwide sales-channel by offering its designs by Pattern Design.

3. Subject matter of the agreement
The subject matter of this agreement is the design transmitted by the Design Partner in accordance with the pattern specs.
The pattern specs form a part of the agreement between Pattern Design and the Design Partner and may be amended unilaterally by Pattern Design in supplement.

4. Registration and user account
In order to be able to sell designs as a Design Partner by Pattern Design, the future Design Partner must register. Such registration shall be free of charge. Upon completion of the registration process, the future Design Partner shall receive an user account without any restriction as to time. The future Design Partner must not provide incorrect or misleading information upon registration (such as name, e-mail address, etc.).

Such information provided can only be changed by directly contacting Pattern Design in writing, either via e-mail or mail. The Design Partner shall be entitled to request at any time that Pattern Design deletes its registration and thus its user account and deactivates its user name and password. Such request must be made via e-mail or mail.
Pattern Design shall be entitled to delete the user account at any time and without stating reasons, as well as to deactivate user name and password.

5. Scope of use
The Design Partner grants Pattern Design the right to use the designs without limitation in time, place and content. Upon receipt of the design, Pattern Design will be authorized to use the design without limitation at the exclusion of the rights of third parties and, in particular, of the Design Partner (creator) itself, and to grant simple rights of use to third parties (sub-licensing); (e.g. the designs can be sold more than once by Pattern Design).
The Design Partner agrees that all rights of use are transferred to Pattern Design upon completed transmission of a design to Pattern Design.

6. Modifications / Editing rights
Upon successful transmission, Pattern Design will be authorized to modify and further develop the design and does not require the consent of the Design Partner to do so (e.g. changing the colour of a design).
Pattern Design is, without the consent of the Design Partner, authorized to exploit the modified design without previous permission.

7. Labelling
Reference to the creator of the designs are made. This will be also made, inasmuch as the design is used in an editorial or a journalistic context. The creator can effect the modification of the reference (e.g. to a pseudonym). Pattern Design will modify the reference on as soon as possible.
Pattern Design does not warrant that its sales partners effect the modification of the reference.

8. Remuneration
For every sale of a design by Pattern Design, the Design Partner will be paid at least 30% of the net sale value. The pricing of the designs is set by Pattern Design. The prices can be seen on the details page of each design on

In the case of sales by business partners (e.g. partner shops etc.) the prices of the designs and hence the amount remunerated per design may vary without prior notice to the Design Partner. It will not always be possible to equip the patterns with a watermark. Meanwhile, the protection can also be effected by optical distortion, proper watermarks of the business partners or by objects (e.g. furniture) which are displayed in front of the pattern. A uniform protection cannot be guaranteed because of the greatly varying product areas of the business partners.
The remuneration will be transferred to a PayPal or bank account designated by the Design Partner. When the balance reaches EUR 50.- the Design Partner can request the withdrawal within his account. The balance will be transferred to the corresponding account within 7 days.
The Design Partner will be automatically sent an e-mail upon each sale. In addition, the Design Partner can prompt Pattern Design to deactivate this information service.
Pattern Design reserves the right to pass on transaction fees to the Design Partner.
9. External services used by the Design Partner
Pattern Design is released from external services incurred in the creation of the design. The Design Partner has to bear all costs incurred from external services.
10. Unlimited right of use
Upon successful transmission of the design, the Design Partner transfers to Pattern Design its unlimited right to use the design.
11. Deletion of Designs
Pattern Design reserves the right to refuse designs in the course of internal quality control measures or due to inappropriate content, and to delete such designs.
The Design Partner can also effect the deletion of some or all of his designs. Pattern Design will delete the requested designs on as soon as possible and will also inform sales partners of Pattern Design to do so. Sales partners of Pattern Design are bound by contractual agreement to effect the deletion as soon as possible, but latest one (1) month after notification by Pattern Design. Pattern Design does not warrant that its sales partners effect the deletion. Sales already carried out, the presentation of products with the requested designs in already produced, non-digital, promotional tools (e.g. product catalog), as well as with the designs manufactured products, are excluded from the deletion.
