  1. It's typically free of charge to Access and Download assets. When you Download or Send files you may be asked you to answers a couple of intended use questions, that helps the brand track usage and understand how assets are being used. You can think of this as the "price"of access to the brand's files. This will help the brand understand usage, manage and improve content for you over time.
