Purchase Agreement

Any image purchased from StockPhoto.com Pty Ltd. (“StockPhoto.com”) or through any of StockPhoto.com’s websites, is sold/licensed pursuant to the following terms and conditions. By purchasing the image, you will acquire a license to the image as set forth herein, and you agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement. The following is a legal and binding agreement between StockPhoto.com and the Licensee.

Definitions of Terms

Licensee

The Licensee is the specific person or organization whose details are recorded on the StockPhoto.com account from which the image is purchased/licensed. An invoice will be generated to such person or organization when an image is purchased/licensed pursuant to this Agreement.

Royalty Free (RF)

Images are sold/licensed for a one-time fee. The Licensee’s use is limited by the size of the file purchased/licensed from StockPhoto.com and by the license terms set forth in this Agreement. All images are sold/licensed on a non-exclusive basis for an indefinite period of time.

All Files on the Site may be downloaded under the Standard and/or Extended license. Follow these rules to choose the appropriate license:

a. If the File is used to create an item NEITHER for Resale NOR for Free Distribution, the Standard License is always appropriate.

b. If the File is used to create an item for Resale or for Free Distribution:

i. if the File plays a minor role in the item, the Standard License is appropriate;

ii. if the File plays a major role in the item, the Extended License is appropriate.

Item for Resale: An item that will be distributed to raise commercial revenue (e.g., resale of web templates, T-shirts, books, calendars, etc.). An item created at the request of a client is not considered an Item for Resale. However, if a client distributes or intends to distribute such an item to raise commercial revenue, it is considered an Item for Resale. While working on a project for a client, take into account the final use of the item before downloading a File to determine the appropriate license to purchase.

Item for Free Distribution: An item that will be distributed to a wide audience without raising any commercial revenue (e.g., free web templates, postcards, flyers, etc.).

The role a File plays in an item is determined by the value the File adds to the item and how much the File influences a customer’s decision to choose this particular item among similar items.

a. A major role: A File is considered to play a major role in an item if the File is a primary, defining, or important part of the item, increases the intrinsic value of the item, or influences a customer’s preference for this particular item.

b. A minor role: A File is considered to play a minor role in an item if the File is an incidental part of the item, does not add significant value to the item and does not influence a customer’s preference for this item.

StockPhoto.com may allow the downloading of watermarked images from our website(s) for evaluation purposes without payment of a purchase fee to StockPhoto.com. All such non-purchased/licensed images on the website will bear a watermark, and Licensee shall not remove any watermark or copyright, trademark or other intellectual property or proprietary notice or legend contained on images.

Licensee acknowledges that nothing in this Agreement provides Licensee with any other rights in the image, except as stated herein, or any derivative works not developed by Licensee.

Licensee may alter or manipulate a licensed image for the purpose of color matching or concept reasons. Licensee shall not increase the file size of smaller purchased/licensed images with digital interpolation as this will result in significant quality loss and is therefore strictly prohibited. Larger images are available for purchase/license.

No images licensed from StockPhoto.com may be further distributed by Licensee to third-parties other than as part of final works prepared by Licensee as permitted by this Agreement.

Comp Use License Agreement

Watermarked Images may be used directly off the StockPhoto.com websites for comp purposes only if the existing watermark is maintained. When comp use is granted it is understood that the Licensee will not use the image for any other purpose than specific comp use.
