Our Website may contain our service marks or trademarks as well as those of our affiliates or other companies, in the form of words, graphics, and logos. Your use of our Website does not constitute any right or license for you to use such service marks/trademarks, without the prior written permission of the corresponding service mark/trademark owner. Our Website is also protected under international copyright laws. The copying, redistribution, use or publication by you of any portion of our Website is strictly prohibited.

Links to Other Websites
Our Website may contain links to third party websites. Contrastly has no control over the legal documents and privacy practices of third party websites; as such, you access any such third party websites at your own risk.
Refunds & Exchanges (Contrastly Store)
Due to the nature of digital products we do not offer refunds or exchanges. Contrastly will consider granting a refund that is requested in a reasonable timeframe and that meets certain internal criteria (such as a customer having ordered the same product twice), and will grant refunds at its reasonable discretion. Nothing herein grants an obligation by Contrastly to grant a refund.
Pricing and Currency
All products for sale on Contrastly and processed via the Contrastly store are listed in USD currency. This includes our Premium Lightroom Presets, Premium Photoshop Actions, and eBooks.
Since December 1, 2009, the FTC requires online publications to disclose whenever they receive any sort of compensation – be it in the form of free products or monetary compensation.
First, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Contrastly accepts monetary compensation for advertising, sponsorships, paid insertions, as well as free products and services. Our main business is Lightroom Presets, Photoshop Actions, and eBooks, but we do receive monetary compensation via advertising and sponsored content.
Now for the not-so-obvious. Contrastly relies partly on advertising revenues, affiliate commission, and other forms of revenues to keep going. We are a profitable website, but we got there by providing honest reviews, recommending great products (that we use ourselves) and provide links to relevant products when appropriate. We pay our writers well and care deeply about the photography industry.
Please note that the advertising space or sponsored content published on this site may not always be directly identified as paid or sponsored. The views and opinions expressed on Contrastly are our own. Any product claim, statistical information, citation or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider in question.
All this to say that when you read an article on Contrastly, we may include links in the content of the article that point to third party websites. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. We also earn a commission from sites such as PhotographyPla.net, ShutterSweets, B&H Photo, On1 Software, Photzy, BuySellAds, ImpactRadius, TradeDoubler, Google Adsense and various others. We get paid a small amount every time you click and/or purchase something from those 3rd party websites. This is, in part, how we can operate this website and keep both our writers and our readers happy.
Also, a portion of this site’s revenues goes towards helping budding entrepreneurs in developing countries via Kiva.org.
Our Legal Terms shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in Quebec, Canada, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Quebec, Canada, without regard to conflict of law principles. In addition, you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Any cause of action by you with respect to our Website, must be instituted within one (1) month after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. Should any part of our Legal Terms be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. To the extent that any Content in our Website conflicts or is inconsistent with our Legal Terms, our Legal Terms shall take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of our Legal Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. The rights of Contrastly under our Legal Terms shall survive the termination of our Legal Terms.
