If I decide to cancel what happens to the images I've already licensed and/or downloaded.

Scenario - I sign up for the month to month plan at 40 images a month for a 10 months.  At the end of 10 months I decide to cancel.  I've licensed and downloaded 400 images during that time.  Can I continue to use those images that I licensed and downloaded while I had an active subsciption in social media posts after the cancellation date and in perpetuity?  

 

For example, in month 11 I make a social media posting using an adobe stock image that was licened in the past with an active stock subscription.   The subscription has been cancelled, can I use that image in a social media post in month 11 without an active subscrption using an image that was licensed in the past under an active subscription?

 

The stock license terms and conditions and the few questions and answers in this formum make me think I can use the images in perpetuity, am I wrong?

@robert5FA0 , Based on your scenario you should be fine.  There are certain restrictions for usage depending on what type of license you have (e.g. Standard, Enhanced, Limited, etc.)  But basically once you've licensed the image, you are free to continue to use that image whether or not you are still under a monthly subscription.  Your subscription is an economical way for you to download a number of images rather than single images on demand.  It's the fact that you licensed the image that is important not necessarily when you licensed it.

 

Make sure you understand the limitations of the various types of licensing as well.

Here is a link for the detailed Terms and Conditions of Licensing.

I hope this answers your question.
