I wish to buy some content off the scirra store to aid me in making my own game. I wanted to know if the files people have uploaded for sale and are royalty free can be used commercially so if my game was to be successful I could keep everything and not get penalised. It may seem like a pretty stupid question but I was looking into getting plenty of assets from various sources and make them into my own etc. Please help if you can :D

If you are not sure of your actual(or futur) use, takes commercial option... or if you must upgrade to the commercial edition (only if you reach 5000$ profit)

There's also things like openclipart and opengameart. Though a lot of the store stuff looks really good and its mostly cheap. I wouldn't spend too much though, get the core first
My tutorial through development blog is at http://myconstruct2dev.blogspot.co.uk/

Advise: Learn about and read software licenses when they are presented to you.

Construct's license is independent from the assets license. That's why in the licensing terms of the store Construct's licenses have their own chapter and assets do have a different one.
Moreover on each asset's page there is a "License" tab that clearly defines what you are allowed to do and not to do with the assets.

Finally the choice you found yourself with about the use of the assets (Use within a business organisation, personal use only, a gift ,anything else) has again nothing to do with C2's license itself but is just about the nature of your payment.
If you are a business you may access invoice and VAT related stuff by selecting "Use within a business organisation".
