Product Endorsement or Sensitive Use Disclaimer

If any Image(s) featuring a model is used in a manner that would lead a reasonable person to believe that the model personally uses or endorses a product or service, or if the depiction of the model is used in connection with a subject that would be unflattering, embarrassing or unduly controversial to a reasonable person, Licensee must accompany each such use with a statement that indicates that the person is a model and the Image(s) is being used for illustrative purposes only. These requirements are without prejudice to the obligations of SuperStock regarding use of the Image(s) contained elsewhere throughout this Agreement.

Releases

Unless expressly indicated by SuperStock no model releases are available. Names are removed to protect the privacy of the model. SuperStock grants no rights and makes no warranties with regard to the use of names, trademarks, trade dress, registered, unregistered or copyrighted designs, or works of art or architecture depicted in any Image(s). Licensee must satisfy itself that all the necessary rights or consents regarding any of the above, as may be required for reproduction, have been obtained.

Indemnity

Licensee agrees to defend, indemnify and hold SuperStock and its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates and their respective officers, directors and employees harmless from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs), arising out of or as a result of claims by third parties relating to Licensee's use of any Image(s) outside the scope of this Agreement or any other breach by Licensee of this Agreement.

Warranties and Limitation of Liability

SuperStock represents that it has the right to grant the license herein and warrants the Image(s) to be free from defects in material and workmanship for 30 days from delivery. The sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of the foregoing warranty is the replacement of the CD-ROM or refund of the purchase price, at SuperStock's option.

SuperStock uses commercially reasonable efforts to identify the caption for each Image, but cannot be held responsible for erroneous or incomplete caption information. SuperStock makes no warranties express or implied related metadata or caption information that accompanies the Images.

SUPERSTOCK MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SUPERSTOCK SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY GENERAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR LOST PROFITS OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, COSTS OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF LICENSEE'S USE OF THE IMAGES, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF SUPERSTOCK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, COSTS OR LOSSES. SUPERSTOCK’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH LICENSEE'S USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE IMAGE(S) (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) SHALL, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, BE LIMITED TO THE VALUE OF 10 TIMES THE VALUE PAID BY THE LICENSEE FOR THE IMAGES.

Payment Terms

No licenses are granted until full payment of SuperStock’s invoice is received. Unless credit terms have specifically been agreed directly between SuperStock and the Licensee, payment of SuperStock's invoices must be received on the sooner of fourteen (14) days of its date net, without any discounts, or prior to the publication of any Image(s). The licensee agrees to pay SuperStock a service charge of two (2) percent per month on any unpaid balance after this time period for the use of the Image(s).

Any disputes concerning the invoice must be submitted in writing, within five (5) business days of the invoice date, or the licensee shall be deemed to have accepted the invoice as issued.

Cancellation Policy for Royalty-Free Images

Due to the liberal nature of the licenses for Royalty-Free images, all licenses are final; no refunds or credits will be allowed. The breaking of the CD-ROM seal or the completed downloading of content to Licensee is considered to be the complete fulfillment of SuperStock's obligations.

Copyright Infringement and Liquidated Damages

In the event that the licensee utilizes any Image(s) without or prior to the granting of a license, SuperStock reserves the right to seek damages through legal channels unless the licensee agrees to reimburse SuperStock, as liquidated damages, a sum equal to ten (10) times the market value price charged for such use of a Royalty- Free image(s).

If the licensee fails to make the payment as outlined above, within ten (10) days of SuperStock's invoicing such fee, this liquidated damage provision shall be void and SuperStock reserves the right to sue for copyright infringement, including attorneys' fees and all associated costs.

Termination

The license contained in this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from SuperStock if Licensee fails to comply with any provision of this Agreement. Upon termination, Licensee must immediately (i) stop using the Image(s), (ii) destroy or, upon the request of SuperStock, return the Image(s) to SuperStock, and (iii) delete or remove the Image(s) from Licensee's premises, computer systems and storage (electronic and physical).

Revocation

Licensor reserves the right to revoke the license to use any Image(s) for good cause and elect to replace such Image(s) with an alternative Image. Upon notice of any revocation of a license for any Image(s), Licensee shall immediately cease using such Image (s), shall take all reasonable steps to discontinue use of the replaced Image(s) in products that already exist and shall inform all end-users and clients of same.

Severability

If one or more of the provisions contained in the Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. Such provisions shall be reformed only to the extent to make it enforceable.

Jurisdiction and Attorney Fees

This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of FLORIDA, without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Licensee agrees that the Circuit or County Court of the State of Florida for Duval County and the United States District Court for the District of FLORIDA located in Jacksonville are the agreed and appropriate forums for any such suit, and consent to service of process by registered mail or overnight courier with proof of delivery. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this Agreement. If SuperStock is obligated to go to court to enforce any of its rights, the Licensee agrees to reimburse SuperStock for its legal fees and disbursements if SuperStock is successful.

Waiver

No action of SuperStock, other than express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any provision of this Agreement.

Entire Contract

This contract contains all the terms of the license agreement and no terms or conditions may be added or deleted unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of both parties.
