4) (a) You the company employing or commissioning the individual (including freelance picture researchers) to whom images are lent or sent are held responsible for their safe keeping and (if applicable) safe return in good condition. It is also your responsibility to inform us of their intended use, and to ensure payment is made. This responsibility extends to any third party who may hold the images for printing or other work. i.e. You (and / or your company) are responsible for your printer (or other third party you pass images onto and their actions). for example (but not limited to) if you send a photographic negative to a third party to scan or digitise on your behalf, and it becomes damaged, it is you who is at fault.

(b) Our Advice Note will list all the images delivered to you, which shall be presumed to have been received in good condition, unless within 3 days of receipt we receive notification of any discrepancy or damage, this includes all media, whether digital or physical (such as negatives), we will endeavour to re-send any images that may be damaged or corrupt, if we are able.

You shall immediately inform us in writing of any known loss or misuse of, or damage to the images while in your possession or that of any third party acting on your behalf or under your instruction. If an image is not returned within 30 days of the date for return, we may at our sole discretion presume it to be lost.

(d) All images must be returned by 'trackable delivery' involving a signature for safe receipt, if this applicable, eg for physical formats. They should be insured to the relevant value, and must be properly wrapped, to protect them from damage.

(e) If any images are used for personal use, including use as desktop wallpapers, each licencing fee, shall only cover the use as such on ONE computer or applicable device, all other subsequent uses must be re-licenced. a discount may be given for multiple devices / uses at our sole discretion.

Artwork will be quoted separately on supply. Payment of compensation does not give rise to any rights in any image. These figures have been assessed by us and are a genuine pre-estimate of the loss which would be suffered if such an image were to be lost or damaged, and thus unable to be used in future by us commercially (loss of commercial oppourtunity).

You are urged to take out insurance to cover the total value of the images delivered.
** (Please note that Royal Mail Special Delivery does NOT cover photographs, unless their consequential loss insurance is taken out, so it would be wise to).

Also Any Image Used WITHOUT OUR PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT - shall be liable for Compensation of £500 PER IMAGE, PER WEBSITE OR PER EDITION OF ANY MAGAZINE OR BOOK ISSUE, this is a genuine estimate of the costs and damage we would suffer if our image was to be infringed.

If it is undamaged you will be credited with the compensation paid less a rental fee (under Clause 6) from the date the image was due for return until the date the image is received back by us. charged on a pro-rata basis as calculated by us, this covers any potential loss whilst we did not hold the image in our possession.

6) All images not selected must be returned within 30 days of the date of the advice note. All images that are not being used, and which are not returned within this time will incur a holding fee of £14.00 per image per week or part thereof for each additional week held, unless an extended loan period has been agreed with us prior. no retrospective agreements will be honoured, you must contact us in good time. Those images that are used must similarly be returned within one month of publication (photographic film formats / physical formats such as prints). any images sent to you for your proofing or viewing, shall be your responsibility, this includes but not limited to protection from moisture or anything else that could harm photographic items, and in the case of digital files, you shall be responsible for the safety and security of these, and take reasonable care and attention to protect them from unlawful copying or stealing. we advise anti virus and firewalls be used on any computer (or other applicable device) that hold or view the images.
