pipistock CONTENT LICENCE AGREEMENT
1. General Terms
This Content Licence Agreement (the “Agreement”) together with the pipistock Membership Agreement govern the terms and conditions by which Members of pipistock obtain the right to use Content available for download from the website located at www.pipistock.co.nz (the “Site”). The Site is owned and operated by Pipistock Ltd (“pipistock”). This Content Licence Agreement incorporates the terms and conditions of the pipistock Membership Agreement provided that where there is inconsistency between the terms and conditions set out here and those in the Membership Agreement, the terms and conditions set out in this Content Licence Agreement shall prevail. This Content Licence Agreement is a legally binding agreement between the Member and pipistock, and is entered into each time the Member downloads Content.
The headings in this Membership Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect interpretation.
2.1 “Member, you or your” means the Member whose Username is being used to access and download the Content.
2.2 “Content” means any photographs, images, vectors or other media and any associated keywords, information, titles or other material downloaded by you from the Site.
2.3 “End Work” means the final work product created with the Content as authorised hereunder.
2.4 “Editorial purposes” means use of Content as a descriptive visual reference for an article that is newsworthy or of public interest such as news reporting, criticism, or commentary. Accepted editorial purposes include newspaper, magazine and online articles of a non-commercial nature which are directly linked to the use of the Content. Editorial purposes do not include the use of the Content for commercial, promotional, advertising or advertorial uses.
2.5 Terms defined in the pipistock Membership Agreement shall have the same meaning here.
3. Background to Agreement
This Agreement is set up as a user-determined document where you will choose during the purchasing process to enter into either pipistock’s standard royalty-free content licence (the “Standard Licence”) or pipistock’s expanded royalty-free content licence where some of the restrictions of the Standard Licence are amended to allow a wider scope of usage for the Content you download (the “Expanded Licence”). Not all Content on the Site has an Expanded Licence option. Where it is available, Content is clearly marked with the Expanded Licence option in the Image Options section located beneath the Content on the Site. If you do not select and purchase the Expanded Licence option, or there is no Expanded Licence option for the Content you have chosen, your download of the Content will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Standard Licence.
4. Standard Licence Terms and Conditions
4.1 Any and all licences granted by pipistock are conditional upon:
a) the Member’s compliance with all the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and
b) the Member’s payment of the number of Download Credits (as that term is described in the pipistock Membership Agreement) as stated on the Site for the selected licence.
4.2 Any and all licence(s) granted to the Member hereunder and the Member’s right to use the Content shall immediately terminate upon the Member’s failure to comply with any provision of this Agreement or to make full payment when due.
4.3 Upon the Member’s agreement to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and receipt of the Member’s full payment, pipistock grants to the Member a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Content for the Standard Licence Permitted Uses as set out in clause 5, subject to the Standard Licence Prohibited Uses as set out in clause 6.
4.4 All other rights in and to the Content including, without limitation, all copyright and other intellectual property rights relating to the Content are retained by pipistock or the Supplier of the Content as the case may be.
5. Standard Licence Permitted Uses
5.1 The Member may only use the Content for those advertising, promotional and other specified purposes which are Permitted Uses (as defined in clause 5.3 below). For clarity, the Member may not use the Content in products for resale, licence or other distribution, unless the Member has purchased an Expanded Licence which is available (if any) for the Content and the proposed use is allowable under that Expanded Licence.
5.2 Seat Restrictions. Only the individual actually downloading the Content is permitted to use the Content. However, the individual may transfer files containing the Content or the End Work to the Member’s clients, printers, or ISP for the purpose of reproduction for Permitted Uses (as defined in clause 5.3), provided that such recipient parties shall have no rights to use the Content for their own purposes and may only use it for the Member’s purposes. If the Member requires the Content to be used by more than one individual, the Member must obtain a Standard Licence for each individual user or obtain an Expanded Licence (if any available) to allow a multi-seat use for the Content. The Member may make one (1) copy of the Content solely for back-up purposes and must reproduce all proprietary notices on this single back-up copy.
