Terms and Conditions - Business Clients and Organisations

1. DEFINITIONS

For the purpose of this agreement "the Agency" and "the Client" shall where the context so admits include their respective assignees, sub-licensees and successors in title. In cases where the Photographer's client is a direct client (ie. with no agency or intermediary), all references in this agreement to both "the Agency" and "the Client" shall be interpreted as references to the Photographer's client. "Photographs" means all photographic material furnished by the Photographer, whether transparencies, negatives, prints or any other type of physical or electronic material.

2. COPYRIGHT

The entire copyright in the Photographs is retained by the Photographer at all times throughout the world.

3. OWNERSHIP OF MATERIALS

Title to all Photographs remains the property of the Photographer. When the Licence to Use the material has expired the Photographs must be returned to the Photographer in good condition within 30 days.

4. USE

The Licence to Use comes into effect from the date of payment of the relevant invoice(s). No use may be made of the Photographs before payment in full of the relevant invoice(s) without the Photographer's express permission. Any permission which may be given for prior use will automatically be revoked if full payment is not made by the due date or if the Agency is put into receivership or liquidation. The Licence only applies to the advertiser and product as stated on the front of the form and its benefit shall not be assigned to any third party without the Photographer's permission. Accordingly, even where any form of "all media" Licence is granted, the photographer's permission must be obtained before any use of teh Photographs for other purposes eg. use in relation to another product or sublicensing through a photo-library. Permission to use the Photographs for purposes outside the terms of the Licence will normally be granted upon payment of a fee, which must be mutually agreed (and paid in full) before such further use. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all further Licenses in respect of the Photographs will be subject to these terms and conditions.

5. EXCLUSIVITY

The Agency and client will be authorised to publish the Photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including the Photographer. However, the Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the Photographs in any manner at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting her work. After the exclusivity period indicated in the Licence to Use the Photographer shall be entitled to use the Photographs for any purposes.

6. CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY

The Photography shall only be responsible for obtaining such clearances if this has been expressly agreed before teh shoot. In all other cases the Agency shall be responsible for obtaining such clearances and will indemnify the Photographer against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain such clearances.

Payment of the Booking Fee (20% of total) is due on confirmation of the booking. Payment by the Client will be expected for the commissioned work within 30 days of the issue of the relevant invoice.
