Stock Photo License
Stock Photo License
last updated August 6, 2018
Your access to and use of photos made available for download (the “Photos”) on www.lifewithsydneyandco.com (the “Site”) is subject to the following terms and conditions and any and all applicable laws and regulations (collectively, “License Agreement”).
References to “you” or “your” shall apply to you individually and “we” and “our” shall apply to Sydney Studios, LLC. d/b/a/ Life with Sydney and Co. (“Life with Sydney”).
Grant of Rights
Subject to the terms of this License Agreement and your payment in full, Life with Sydney grants you the non-exclusive, perpetual, non-transferable (unless otherwise permitted herein) license to copy, reproduce, modify, edit, display, publish, or otherwise make use of the Photos.
In addition, if you are entering into this License Agreement on behalf of your employer or if you are an agent entering into this License Agreement on behalf of your client, then you hereby represent and warrant that you have the full legal right and authority to enter into this License Agreement and bind such employer or client to it, and will use the Photos only for the interest of such employer or client.
Standard License Use
The standard license is automatically included with each purchase. That means you may safely use those stock photos for your brand/business. You may also create something with them. Such as a social media pack or a graphic. In that case, you may sell your created item up to 500 times before needing a commercial license. If you bundle your created item, the standard license cap of 500 sales applies to the bundle, not per image.
Commercial License Use
A commercial license must be obtained in writing. This license includes the ability to use my stock photos to manage up to 5 client accounts. That means you can post images for your clients on social media. It also allows you the ability to create up to 10 commercial projects per year, which removes the limit of 500 sales. Please contact me for any commercial use of stock photos at email@example.com
Restrictions on Use
- You may not use the Photos in a pornographic, defamatory, fraudulent, obscene or otherwise illegal manner, including but not limited to infringing any third party intellectual property or privacy rights.
- You may not use the Photos in a manner promoting violence, discrimination, or illegal activity.
- You may not use photos featuring models in a manner that would lead a reasonable person to believe that the model personally uses or endorses a product or service, or that would be unflattering or unduly controversial to a reasonable person.
- You may not use Photos in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute Photos as a standalone file (meaning just the Photo file itself, separate from the end use).
- You may not use Photos as part of a trademark, design mark, tradename, business name, service mark, or logo.
- You may not falsely represent that you are the original creator of a work that is made up largely of licensed Photos.
- You may not use Photos in connection with any goods or services intended for resale or distribution where the primary value lies in the Photos itself including, without limitation, cards, stationery items, paper products, calendars, apparel items, posters, mobile applications or other items for resale, license or other distribution for profit. This includes “on demand” products in which Photos are selected by a third party for customization on such product on a made-to-order basis.
- You may not use Photos in electronic or digital templates intended for resale or other distribution (for example, website templates, business card templates, electronic greeting card templates, brochure design templates).
- If you are an intermediary (for example an advertising agency) you may not sublicense, sell, assign, convey or transfer this Agreement or any of its rights under this Agreement but you may sub-license a Photo as part of a derivative work (for example an advertisement) to your clients.
