MCreator does not contain any malicious pieces of code or software but there is a possibility as for any other file on your computer to be infected with malware. MCreator hosted on our servers is 100% safe but there is a possibility that it gets infected on the way to your computer or on your computer but this is not our problem as this can happen with any download you make.
3. Distributing MCreator
You are not allowed to directly distribute MCreator's software. You can, however, distribute MCreator by providing a link pointing to our website but you have to state that MCreator is not you created and that it belongs to Pylo. You are not allowed to decompile or distribute MCreator's source code. MCreator is not open source! You can't use parts of MCreator's code, libraries or other intellectual properties of Pylo in any way other than intended use (by using MCreator). These rules do not apply to the mods made with MCreator. Distributing mods is described in the section entitled "Mods made with MCreator".
You are not allowed to host MCreator download on your server and provide a public link to the download or in any other way make users able to download MCreator without visiting the official download page as this is against the rules above. If you would, however, like to provide download mirror, contact us to arrange custom permission for you in case we find your application valid and acceptable.
4. Frameworks and libraries
MCreator uses some libraries and frameworks in order to function properly. You can find licenses of the in lib directory of MCreator, in jdk32 or jdk64 directory and in forge directory of MCreator installation or on websites of these frameworks. Some of these frameworks and libraries are Java, FiFe Soft AutoComplete, and RSyntaxTextArea, QDOX, JNBT library, utils4j and XML-RPC library. MCreator does not come with forge included but downloads it on the fly instead. The same thing applies to the Cubik Lite as this is part of our agreement with the software author. We have the permission of the MCSkin3D to bundle it and distribute it with MCreator.

6. Mods made with MCreator
You are allowed to share mods with others on this website. You are also allowed to distribute MCreator on any other website which allows distribution of mods made with MCreator. However, you have to:
- Clearly state that your mod or the mod you distribute was made using MCreator,
- Provide a link to MCreator's website.
An example of this would be this (it has to be placed somewhere on the visible spot, placing such statements in the spoiler or with small fonts to avoid users seeing this is not allowed):
This mod is made with MCreator mod maker. If you want to make a mod too, check their website https://mcreator.pylo.co/.
This mod was made using MCreator mod maker. You can download this mod maker here.
The author listed in the mod file is your name + MCreator and you are not allowed to change the contents of the mcmod.info file! The owner of the mods made with MCreator is both MCreator (owner of MCreator mod maker, therefore Pylo) and the author of the mod. The user is allowed to state that he made the mod, he is allowed to distribute it freely under the terms above, but he is not allowed to monetize his mod in any way or earn money with his mod. He is not allowed to put download links under the ad services such as AdFly and similar. He is also not allowed to use their mods commercially or state that he made the mod without MCreator. However, if the site on which the user is distributing the mod is not the website owned by the author of the mod and the website has advertisements on it and the author does not get any share of them, he is allowed to post their mods there (example of such site would Minecraft Foruand ad they have advertisements, but the user does not earn with them).
Users is not allowed to change the sources of the exported MCreator mod and try to hide the fact that the mod was made with MCreator. If one wants to commercially use their mods, monetize them or earn money in other way such as AdFly (or other link shortening services with earnings) or advertisements, he has to contact us and we might give him the written permission to do so. Without our permission any author of the mod made with MCreator is not allowed to violate these terms.
