TERMS OF SERVICE ("TOS")
The following is a standard legal agreement between our clients or an employer or other entity on whose behalf the client is entering into an agreement ("you" or "Customer") and The Old Photo Factory, a Stockport business with its office at 19 Morton Street, Heaton Norris, Stockport, SK4 1PU, as the licensor hereunder ("TOPF").
TOPF reserves the right to change these TOS at any time, and you agree to be bound by such changes. Please make sure that you read and understand all such changes. If you do not agree to these TOS as same may be amended from time to time, do not download or use any Images. The TOS in effect at the time you are billed will control your rights and obligations with regard to Images downloaded during each billing cycle.
THIS IS A MULTI SEAT LICENSE. IT AUTHORISES MORE THAN ONE NATURAL PERSON TO LICENSE, DOWNLOAD AND USE IMAGES.
All Images on theoldphotofactory.com and related TOPF webpages (collectively, "TOPF Websites") are protected by United Kingdom and international copyright laws and treaties. TOPF own or control all rights, including the copyrights in and to the Images. TOPF reserve all rights in and to the Images not expressly granted to you by the terms of these TOS. Your rights to use any Image are subject to this license agreement and are conditioned upon you making payment to TOPF for your use of the Images. If you fail to make any payment to TOPF when due, or if any check is dishonoured or credit card charge refused or charged back, your account will be deemed delinquent. Provided that your account was current at the time you downloaded an Image and you were not otherwise in breach of any of the terms hereof (or of the terms of any other agreement between you and TOPF), you have the right to use the downloaded Image, subject however, to these TOS. If your account becomes delinquent, your right to use any Images downloaded at any time shall automatically terminate unless all payments together with any interest thereon and TOPF's costs of collection, bank charges and credit card processing fees are received by TOPF no later than thirty (30) days from the date that your account became delinquent.
TOPF hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, perpetual, right to use, modify, and reproduce Images in the following ways, subject to the limitations set forth herein and in Part II hereof:
In print media, digital media, product packaging and software including magazines, newspapers, books (including print-on-demand books), e-books, advertising collateral, letterhead, business cards, product labels, CD and DVD cover art, applications (including mobile "apps"), and opt-in e-mail marketing.
Incorporated into film, video, multimedia presentations, or advertising for broadcast, public performance, or streaming.
Incorporated into print or digital material intended for public display, including trade show booths or point of sale materials, excluding so-called Out of Home advertising.
