1. CATALYST THEME LICENSING
CATALYST THEME GPL LICENSING
Catalyst Theme & all Catalyst Child Themes are released under the GPL version 2.0 license ( http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html ).

2. TERMS OF SERVICE FOR MEMBERSHIP
A. SIMPLE VERSION
As a paid customer of the Service, you are a member of the CatalystTheme.com website community. This allows you to get upgraded versions of Catalyst Theme, support in the forums, quick access to new products, and other benefits of membership, all subject to the terms and conditions contained in this document.
This membership entitles you to Catalyst Members only Support.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO THE CATALYST MEMBERSHIP & CHILD THEMES:
If you build and develop sites for clients, they will not receive Catalyst Members only Support unless they purchase a Catalyst Membership/License. Support is only granted to those owning a Catalyst Theme License.
Additionally, due to the high volume of support requests, all support requests, except those pertaining to difficulty accessing the Catalyst Forum, should be posted in the Catalyst Forum. All other support requests sent via email, Forum PM, Twitter, etc. will be ignored. This is for the benefit of all users, as the Catalyst Forum is the most efficient way to handle Catalyst Support, and Forum Posts benefit all users searching for answers, not just the user requesting support.
Use or distribution of Catalyst Theme in violation of the terms and conditions of membership contained in this document will result in termination of your membership, without refund. Also, please be civil and considerate when making use of the support forums, as bad behavior is also grounds for termination of your membership.
