BUYERS - Terms and Conditions
This is a legal contract between you and picturenation Limited.
By registering and downloading images from our website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement in respect of those images. If you do not accept or agree with these terms do not download the images. This is a license, not a sale. We or our Members continue to own the intellectual property rights of the images. The images are provided under the terms of the following license agreement ("Agreement") that states what you may and may not do with the images and contains limitations on warranties and remedies. Only you are permitted to use the images. Any additional persons who wish to use the images must register and download them from the picturenation website themselves. Within this Agreement, "picturenation", "we", "our" and "us" refers to picturenation Limited, and "you" and "your" refers to you, the customer.

GENERAL PROHIBITED USES:
If you have registered with picturenation then this Agreement is personal to you. If you register as an organisation, i.e. a company, business, school, charity, college or website, then this Agreement is for the sole benefit of that organisation. Only the organisation that registers is permitted to use the images it downloads. You may not transfer, duplicate, sell or share those images to or with another organisation.
MASS COMMERCIAL REPRODUCTION ROYALTY FEES:
Where you use a print reproduction of a single image for commercial/business purposes in excess of 300,000 times in aggregate, a royalty fee of GBP £0.01p is payable for each print reproduction above the aggregate limit of 300,000. You agree to advise picturenation in writing as soon as you reproduce the image, or an element of the image in excess of 300,000 times. In that first notice to us you should advise us of the number of reproductions made by you which are in excess of 300,000. Thereafter, you must advise us in writing on a monthly basis of how many times you have reproduced the image, or an element of the image is reproduced, that month. This does not apply to images used on websites, newspapers, in schools or for educational establishments or charities.
Pictures that clearly show a person's face and are used to illustrate negative or controversial news stories such as abuse, truancy, road rage, dementia, poor education results, etc. must carry a by-line underneath or to the side of them saying 'Model used in this picture'. This includes images that carry a signed Model Release Form. No picturenation image may be downloaded for pornographic or illegal purposes.
If you use an image in a way that makes the model look like he/she is representing a product you must carry a by-line underneath or to the side of them saying 'Model used in this picture'.
Before purchasing an image featuring a child you may be referred to our Child Picture Policy.
You, the buyer, are responsible for whether the image(s) you download can be used for the purpose for which you have purchased the license to use that image(s), and you, the buyer, are responsible for ensuring that all necessary release forms and documents needed for the use of that image(s) are in place before you use that image.
Where images on the picturenation website are indicated as having associated releases picturenation gives no warranties or representations as to the accuracy of any information contained in such releases or any signatures thereon.
picturenation gives no warranties or representations with regard to the use of trademarks, names, logos, registered or copyrighted designs or artistic works featured in any image.
You must satisfy yourself that all releases as may be required for your use of the image have been secured. You are solely responsible for obtaining all such releases. If you are not sure if any releases are needed for your image usage, then it is your responsibility to consult with relevant parties. You shall not rely upon any warranty or representation given by picturenation save as set out in this Agreement.
All images are subject to 20.0% VAT where applicable. Non EC countries are exempt from VAT. If you are eligible to pay VAT then this will be added to your invoice prior to purchase.
If you have problems downloading content you have paid for, you should contact us and make a request to picturenation to be able to download that content to an alternative suitable location. If you continue to be unable to download the content, picturenation will refund you the fee paid by you for the content if picturenation determines that you have indeed been unable to download that content. Refunds are not permitted for content that has successfully downloaded.
Notification of any problem downloading an image must be received within 7 days of purchase. Refunds cannot be considered after 7 days from the purchase date.
