You get all rights unless specified otherwise by the seller in their gig description (and maybe their offer). You could check with the seller before purchasing. Also you could make sure you order a gig with the source file (where you could see how it was created) and also check online using google’s image lookup (and/or similar service) to see if the image or a similar image already exists online.
