This is an archive version of the One Design Use License Agreement. It was replaced on May 14, 2020. The current and previous versions may be found via the Policy Archives.
Please note there are specific rules that apply to Music under the One Design Use License.
When you download content from Canva under a One Design Use License, you agree to the following terms.
Please note that a Canva Design that contains Stock Media licensed under the One Design Use License Agreement may only be used in compliance with the One Design Use License Agreement even if other Stock Media in the Canva Design has been licensed under the Multi-Use License Agreement and/or Extended License Agreement (whichever applicable – noting that paid Stock Music is only available to license under the One Design Use License). To obtain the right to use any Canva Design pursuant to the Multi-Use License Agreement and/or Extended License Agreement (whichever applicable), you must license all the Stock Media in your Canva Design under either the Multi-Use License or Extended License (whichever applicable).
Your failure to comply with the terms herein could result in legal proceedings and the immediate termination of your account.
If you want to use any of Canva’s Stock Media, you have to pay to obtain a license.
If you pay for a One Design Use License, then you can only use that Stock Media in one of your Canva Designs. While the license allows you to change aspects of that specific Canva Design (such as colours or text), you may not Magic Resize the design or edit the PDFs, PNGs or JPGs that we give you as part of that license (That’s why we can offer you this content for much cheaper than anyone else)
Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, we hereby grant to you a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide license to use the Stock Media in one Canva Design for a Permitted Use (as defined below). Unless the activity or use is a Permitted Use, you cannot do it. All other rights in and to the Stock Media, including, without limitation, all copyright and other Intellectual Property Rights relating to the Stock Media, are retained by Canva and/or its Contributors as the case may be.
We are granting you a license anywhere we can (even Antarctica, penguins!), but you’re not the only one we can give it to and you can’t give it to anyone else.

If you want to end this agreement, you don’t have to get Arnold Schwarzenegger involved. Just shred any printed copies of the design and delete any files related to the design.
We can change this license whenever we want.
If anyone takes legal action over any Stock Media you are using, you must stop using the Stock Media, delete or remove the Stock Media, and let us know about it.
