If you give me the permission to sell the resulting work you get a 25% discount.

licence - rights of use

If the image is used in a private and non comercial scope there are no additional costs for the licence. 

 

In a commercial scope for example: CD-Cover, card deck, Book cover or advertising in all forms. The licence costs are calculated from the usage duration and scope.
