Effective Date: 15 December 2022

The following comprises Terms of use. You can access Technical Support Polices here and the Privacy Policy here.

These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern your use of Luxion Inc. (“Luxion”) websites or software referencing these Terms. Specifically, websites include www.keyshot.com and its subdomains. Software applies specifically to all versions of KeyShot and KeyShot Cloud (see definitions below). You may not use our website or software unless you agree to these terms, so please read them carefully. Before using the websites or software, you are required to read, understand, and agree to these terms. You may only use the website and software after reading and accepting these Terms and Conditions.


    1. KeyShot Website – The KeyShot website (https://www.keyshot.com) serves as a place of information about KeyShot software as well as access to various KeyShot services.
    2. KeyShot Account – A KeyShot Account (https://account.keyshot.com) is single sign-on (SSO) access to KeyShot and multiple KeyShot-based services and features for users of the KeyShot software. A KeyShot Account allows users to manage personal information, order history, device authorization, license grants, team management, and access additional tools for software self-service. Users must sign up by creating a username and password. Purchases made via a KeyShot Account cannot be moved to another account without contacting sales and support.
    3. KeyShot Cloud – KeyShot Cloud (https://cloud.keyshot.com) is a platform to search and share KeyShot resources. Resources include KeyShot Materials, Environments, Backplates, Textures, and Models. Resources do not include full scenes, documents, or personal user data. A KeyShot Account is required to use the functionalities on KeyShot Cloud. End-user participation on KeyShot Cloud is optional.
    4. KeyShot Cloud Drive – KeyShot Cloud Drive is a service accessed on KeyShot Cloud. The service is for subscription license holders of KeyShot software that allows upload and use of KeyShot Cloud Drive. The service gives the user access to limited cloud storage and several features for sharing content. The cloud storage capacity is displayed when a user is logged into KeyShot Cloud under the My Cloud Drive menu. A KeyShot Account is required to access and upload content to KeyShot Cloud Drive.
    5. KeyShot Community – The KeyShot community (https://community.keyshot.com) allows you to post questions, share content and take part in various user-centered challenges and activities. A KeyShot Account is required to take part in activities and post comments.
    6. KeyShot Support – KeyShot Support (https://help.keyshot.com) is a service for current KeyShot users to read knowledge-base articles, submit help tickets and reference previous tickets, and discuss topics in the KeyShot Support forums. A KeyShot Account is required to submit a ticket and post comments.
    7. KeyShot – KeyShot is a stand-alone, desktop application for Mac and PC. The software and software modules and plugins are downloaded directly to your computer and installed. Activation of the software occurs after the software is installed and the license is confirmed by the Luxion license server via an internet connection. Activation information is the only information transmitted in the process. Upon installing the KeyShot software, users will be prompted to accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), which covers the licensing of KeyShot software. KeyShot license types are described below. 
    8. License Types
      1. Subscription License – Each license is for one user only and may not be shared. Each user may access the license on up to three devices or machines. Subscription Licenses require the user to be signed in with a KeyShot Cloud Account and require an internet connection.
      2. Node-Locked License – Users can fully operate the KeyShot software with no required connection to Luxion websites.
      3. Floating License (FlexLM) – Users that have purchased a Floating License for KeyShot will access their license using the FlexNet licensing tools by Flexera Software LLC. KeyShot Pro Floating and KeyShot License Manager are both provided by Luxion Inc to enable the installation and usage of FlexNet licensing. The licensing server must be a single computer in your network. This computer will host your license file and will be referred to as the license server. The server should be a local central server dedicated for the FlexNet server software to be installed on and always connected to the network in order to maintain the license grants.
      4. Education License – If we designate the services or software to be for use by educational users (“Education License”), then you may install and use the Education License if you are a student, faculty or staff member of an accredited academic institution. You may install and use the Educational License only in the country where you are qualified as an educational user. If you reside in the European Economic Area, then the word “country” in the prior sentence means the European Economic Area.

The license granted by you is for the only purpose of operating, marketing, promoting, and improving our website and software. We will provide attribution to you if we incorporate your content into a Luxion feature or into promotional or marketing materials.
      3. Accessing and Sharing Your Content: By submitting your content to our website or software, you also give other Luxion users the right to share your content via various social media platforms integrated with Luxion services. We may offer you ways to access and remove your content. Our website and software may also provide ways for you to limit the scope of use and access other users’ access and use of your content. You are responsible for determining the limitations that are placed on your content and for applying the appropriate level of access to your content. We do not monitor or control what others do with your content. It is your responsibility to let other users know how your content may be shared and adjust the setting related to accessing and sharing your content accordingly.
      4. Termination of License: You may terminate this license at any time by requesting your content be removed from the website or software. However, you agree that Luxion may retain and use copies of your content for archival or backup purposes and for the investigation purpose mentioned later.

      6. Storage: We recommend that you back up your content elsewhere regularly if the services provide storage and this functionality is enabled by the applicable services. We may create reasonable technical limits on file size, storage space, processing capacity, and other technical limits.

At the end of your license term, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to allow you to transition your content out of the services. The transition must be completed within 30 days from the date of the termination or expiration of your license term. At the end of this 30-day transition period, we reserve the right to delete your content.

      2. Notifying Us of Copyright Infringement: If you believe the website or software is hosting content that infringes your copyright, please let us know by filling out the form that you will find here. If you would prefer to submit a notice to our Copyright Agent (address below) in writing, it must contain all of the following:
        • A description of the copyrighted work(s) you believe are infringed.
        • The exact location (URL) where the infringing material resides.
        • Contact information so that we may reach you (email address, physical address or telephone number).
        • A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the use of the material identified in your notice in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
        • A statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
        • Your signature.
      3. Before Notifying Us: Before you file an infringement notice, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. Please also check to make sure you haven’t authorized the use at issue (for example, whether you have given a creative professional who prepared materials for your company the right to use those materials as examples of his or her past work). If you are unsure whether the use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. You may also wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at the U.S. Copyright website (https://www.copyright.gov) or at the Chilling Effects website (https://www.chillingeffects.org).
      4. If you believe access to your content was disabled or removed by Luxion as a result of an improper copyright infringement notice, please send our Copyright Agent (contact information below) a written counter-notice that contains all of the following:
        • A description of the work improperly removed, along with your username and the location where that work resided.
        • Contact information so that we can reach you, such as email address, your physical address and telephone number.
        • A statement under penalty of perjury, signed by you, that you have a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
        • A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of the Federal District court for the district where you reside (or of Orange County, California if you reside outside of the United Sates) and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
        • Before you file a counter-notice, please carefully consider whether or not your use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court decides your counter-notice misrepresented that the material was removed by mistake. If you are unsure whether the use of the material at issue constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at the U.S. Copyright website https://www.copyright.gov or at the Chilling Effects website (https://www.chillingeffects.org)
