No portion of this web site or the service may be reproduced in any form, or by any means, except as authorized below, without prior written permission from Trimble Inc.
“Models” are individual, separate three-dimensional models of objects created, designed, and developed by you or a third-party (a “Developer”) or by Trimble and include related content and information about or included with the Models. Trimble is not responsible for any Developer Models. “Distribute” means to submit, upload, distribute, sell (upon Trimble's implementation of payment systems) and/or license Models you have created to end users.
To download and use the Models, you need software that is compatible with the Model (for which Trimble or the applicable manufacturer may charge a separate fee) and a computer device with Internet access; such requirements may change from time-to-time and are your responsibility.
Upon signing in to 3D Warehouse the first time, you need to create an account. Currently, you may create a 3D Warehouse account by signing in with a valid Google ID (a username/password combination used to access your Google account) or Trimble ID (a username/password combination issued by Trimble). To sign in using a Google ID, you must authorize Google to share account information with Trimble and you must maintain your Google ID in good standing subject to any separate user terms between you and Google. The authentication information Google provides to Trimble or you provide to Trimble may contain personally identifiable information, which will be handled by Trimble as described below, and we may publicly display the username and profile photo (if any) associated with your Trimble or Google user account.
You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account credentials, and you agree that Trimble may terminate your access to 3D Warehouse and other services if you fail to do so. Additionally, you are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify Trimble immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. Trimble will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge.
You may not register for a user account or use 3D Warehouse to Distribute Models if you are under 13 years of age unless we have verified parental consent.
Some of the 3D Warehouse Materials (defined below in Section 10) may be provided or owned by third parties. Trimble does not endorse, guarantee or provide a warranty for the third party 3D Warehouse Materials and may or may not review them for compliance with law (copyright, patent or any other laws) or Trimble policies. Use of a third party Model is governed by the License Terms Applicable to Models set forth below. TRIMBLE DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WITH REGARD TO MODELS POSTED BY THIRD PARTIES (AND ANY ACTION YOU TAKE BASED ON THEM).
Trimble’s obligations with respect to its own, proprietary products and services are governed solely by the terms and conditions of agreements under which Trimble provides them to you. If you obtain a Trimble proprietary product or service through 3D Warehouse that is provided without an agreement, that product or service is provided “AS-IS” with no warranties whatsoever, express or implied, and your use of that Trimble product or service is at your own risk.
Nothing herein grants you any license, rights, title or interest in or to the Trimble SketchUp software which is licensed to you pursuant to a separate agreement (“SketchUp License Agreement” ). Trimble may update, fix or upgrade the SketchUp software from time-to-time without notice and such changes may affect compatibility or interoperability of your Model. Your right, if any, to receive such updates, fixes or upgrades is dependent upon and governed by the terms of the applicable SketchUp License Agreement between you and Trimble.
Trimble may in its discretion set and revise from time-to-time Qualifications regarding the criteria and procedures for Trimble to accept and authorize each Model submitted for Distribution through 3D Warehouse. Trimble may choose to waive or impose additional Qualifications for a particular Model in its discretion. Trimble may decline to make a Model available on 3D Warehouse for any reason or no reason.
You may remove a Model you previously posted from 3D Warehouse at any time provided that removal shall not affect the license granted to end users who downloaded that Model before you removed it and those licenses will continue under the terms of the General Model License. Although Trimble will not continue Distribution of your Models after you remove them, Trimble may retain archive copies for record keeping purposes.
To Trimble. For all Models you Distribute on or through 3D Warehouse, you hereby grant to Trimble a nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, transferrable (with the right to sublicense through multiple tiers), irrevocable license (under all applicable intellectual property rights) to copy, publicly perform and display, use, distribute, create derivative works of, store, promote, market, support, transmit, and otherwise make available on or through 3D Warehouse each Model and related content, including without limitation as necessary to promote, operate and make available 3D Warehouse and any related Trimble products or services. The foregoing license includes the rights for Trimble to make available Models (or any parts, related content or derivative works thereof) through Trimble’s partners and sublicensees.

As between you and Trimble, except for the limited license rights granted herein, all right, title and interest in and to the Models you Distribute shall remain yours.
Trimble does not and will not endorse, guarantee or provide a warranty for your Models and may or may not review them for compliance with law (copyright, patent or any other laws) or Trimble policies or Qualifications. Distribution of your Models on 3D Warehouse is at your own risk.
You represent and warrant that you have all intellectual property rights, including patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, right of privacy or publicity or other proprietary rights, in and to each Model you Distribute and its related content. If your Model or content includes third-party materials or content, you represent and warrant that you have the right to Distribute the third-party materials or content or otherwise grant Trimble all rights and licenses to such Model set forth in subsection (B) above.
