Client agrees that it has the legal authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of its employer, company, or organization.

All Images and copyrights remain the exclusive property of Photographer without limitation. All usage rights to the Image(s) specifically granted by Photographer to Client appear on the reverse side of this Agreement. No electronic publishing, or Internet use, of any kind is permitted unless specifically stated.
IMAGES ARE LICENSED FOR SPECIFIC USE(S) AND ARE NOT SOLD.
Client understands and agrees that it is not buying the Image(s) but is paying only for a licence to use the Image(s) as specified per the product. The term of licence begins from the date Photographer receives full payment of invoice.
The use of any Image(s) will not constitute a work of joint authorship.
Copyright metadata contained within any digital file may not be altered, or removed, without the express consent of Photographer.
Unless otherwise agreed, Photographer retains the right to use any Image(s) for his self-promotion.
3. PHOTOGRAPHIC INTEGRITY and ALTERATIONS:

Photographer is not responsible for obtaining model, property, trademark, or other releases in connection with any Image(s) unless specifically stated in this Agreement. It is Client’s responsibility to obtain the necessary permissions for any Image uses that require a release.

All invoices are due upon receipt. Adjustments of amounts or terms must be requested within ten days of invoice receipt.
