TERMS AND CONDITIONS For JAGraphics Photography


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


2.            COPYRIGHT
The entire copyright in the Photographs is retained by JAGraphics at all times throughout the world.


Title to all Photographs remains the property of JAGraphics. When the License to Use the material has expired the Photographs must be returned to JAGraphics in good condition within 30 days or deleted from all electronic media


4.            USE
The License 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 JAGraphics’ 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 Client is put into receivership or liquidation. The License only applies to the client and product as stated on the front of the form and its benefit shall not be assigned to any third party without JAGraphics’  permission. Accordingly, even where any form of 'all media' License is granted, the JAGraphics’ permission must be obtained before any use of the Photographs for other purposes e.g. use in relation to another product or sub-licensing through a photo-library. Permission to use the Photographs for purposes outside the terms of the License will normally be granted upon payment of a further 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  Client will be authorized to publish the Photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including JAGraphics. However, JAGraphics 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 JAGraphics work. After the exclusivity period indicated in the License to Use JAGraphics shall be entitled to use the Photographs for any purposes.


JAGraphics will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make use of material or information communicated to JAGraphics in confidence for the purposes of the photography, save as may be reasonably necessary to enable JAGraphics to carry out his/her obligations in relation to the commission.


7.            INDEMNITY
JAGraphics agrees to indemnify the client against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure by JAGraphics  to obtain any clearances for which he/she was responsible in respect of third party copyright works, trade marks, designs or other intellectual property. JAGraphics shall only be responsible for obtaining such clearances if this has been expressly agreed before the shoot. In all other cases the client shall be responsible for obtaining such clearances and will indemnify JAGraphics against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain such clearances.


8.            PAYMENT
Payment by the Client will be expected for the commissioned work within 30 days of the issue of the relevant invoice.

9.            EXPENSES

10.            REJECTION
