3. Restrictions

Images will have copyright credited whenever possible – this includes without exception web use, book and editorial to include – © Hoo Pei Ling / PlingStock.com

Images will not be used for sensitive topics without the Copyright Holders’ prior written agreement. These include (but are not limited to) material concerning models with mental or physical health issues, sexual orientation or sexually related, substance abuse, criminal offences, political endorsements, subjects that could be considered offensive, demeaning or unflattering. If you have any queries contact Copyright Holder

Image may not be used as trademark, service mark or logo unless copyright release is purchased.

Images will not be sub-licensed, assigned, transferred, given away, made available via online or other database. The exception to this is if you have licensed the image for a client (website, advertising, etc) when you must keep detailed records and make them available to the Copyright holder if requested. This is only likely to be required should an IP query arise. You may use the licensed image for one client. Should you wish to use the same image for another client you must licence it again.

Once you have completed payment for the license to use the image, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use and reproduce the image in printed materials, or any electronic or digital form. In the latter case, each image should be incorporated into a design in such a manner to make it clear that the image is not intended to be separately downloaded, copied, or distributed and the image size in use must less than 800 pixels on the longest side.

“Non-transferable” means that the work you produce using a licensed image must be for your own use, or if purchased on behalf of your employer or client, your employer or client must be the end-user of your work. You may not sell, rent, loan, give, sub-license, or otherwise transfer the image, or the right to use an image to anyone, and nothing you produce shall grant or purport to grant to any third party a right to use or duplicate an image. You agree to take all commercially reasonable steps to prevent third parties from duplicating or distributing the image.
