All Nixologic assets (HDRIs, Textures, and 3D Models) are provided under the CC0 1.0 Universal. This applies to the downloadable asset files and the material preview renders shown for each asset on the site. Here’s an excerpt from the CC0 FAQ page to clarify:
“Once the creator or a subsequent owner of a work applies CC0 to a work, the work is no longer theirs in any meaningful sense under copyright law. Anyone can then use the work in any way and for any purpose, including commercial purposes. Think of CC0 as the “no rights reserved” option. CC0 is a useful tool for clarifying that the creator does not claim any copyright in a work anywhere in the world.”
In other words:
- You can use our assets for any purpose, including commercial work.
- You do not need to give credit or attribution when using them (although it is appreciated).
- You can redistribute them, share them around, and include them when sharing your own work, or even in a product you sell.

Using the CC0 license for 3D art assets has many benefits. It allows creators to share their work with a larger audience and encourages collaboration between different fields. While giving credit is not required under the CC0 license, the creators would appreciate it if you did. If you want to give credit, here’s how you can do it.
If you wish to give credit you can do so using this text:

Alternatively, you can also use this shorter version.
