In case of any conflict or ambiguity between clauses 20, 21 and 22 and the rest of this Agreement, the provisions of clauses 20, 21 and 22 will prevail, but only with regard to the subject of such conflict or ambiguity. The Selected Images may only be used in materials for personal, non-commercial use and test or sample use, including comps and layouts.

 

21. The Selected Images may not be used in any final materials distributed inside of your company or any materials distributed outside of your company or to the public, including, but not limited to, advertising and marketing materials or in any online public-facing (including social media websites) or other electronic distribution system (except that you may transmit comps digitally or electronically to your clients for their review) and may not be distributed, sublicenced or made available for use or distribution separately or individually and no rights may be granted to the Selected Images.

 

22. The specific “comping” licence contained in clauses 20, 21 and 22 will terminate automatically without notice from ISTL upon expiry of the 30-day period or, if sooner, upon you failing to comply with any provision of this Agreement. Upon termination of the 30 day period or if otherwise terminated, you must immediately stop using the Selected Images and either destroy any digital Selected Images or return the Selected Images and all copies to ISTL.

 

23. If you or the end user of the Images requests in writing to cancel this Agreement within 30 calendar days of the date of receipt of the Images, and such Images have not been used, ISTL may cancel this Agreement and issue a credit to you as follows: (i) with respect to non-footage Images only, an amount up to 100% of the price may be credited if the request is received within 7 calendar days of receipt of the Images; or (ii) an amount up to 50% of the price may be credited if the request is received between 8 and 30 calendar days of receipt of the Images (or any time within the first 30 calendar days for footage); in each case an administration fee of £40 (or local currency variation) will be charged. No credits are available for any cancellation request received after 30 calendar days from receipt of the Image. Cancellation and the return of any monies shall apply to any other fees which are non-refundable.

 

24. All rights to the Images are owned by ISTL and / or its licencors and are protected internationally by copyright and other applicable laws.  ISTL and its licencors retain all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement.  You may be held legally responsible for any copyright infringement that is caused or encouraged by your failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement.  

 

25. Use of the Images must be in compliance with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations.  ISTL reserves the right to discontinue the use of any Image for any reason and elect to replace the Image with an alternative Image.  Upon notice of any discontinuance of a Licence for a particular Image, you and your client, if applicable, agree not to use the Image in the future.  If any part of this Agreement is found void and unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the remaining terms of the Agreement, which shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms.  This Agreement represents the entire Agreement between the parties relating to its subject matter and may not be amended except in writing signed by an authorised representative of both parties.

 

26. If you fail to pay all sums due within the time specified by ISTL, we may add a charge of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or such lesser amount as is allowed by law, on any unpaid balance until payment is received.

 

27. The laws of England and Wales, whose courts are the courts of exclusive jurisdiction, govern this Agreement, save that ISTL shall have the right to bring proceedings in any jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against you in the event that, in the opinion of ISTL, such action is necessary or desirable.
