POUNDPICS agrees to a limited transfer of granted rights between a Client authorized to purchase on behalf of another or between a Client and a third party, where the third party is integral to the creation of the final Work (for example, a printer, designer, or social media manager), provided those parties agree to the terms of this Agreement.

2. Grant of Sublicense

LICENCE

Subject to all terms of this Agreement, POUNDPICS grants the Client a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license in the Content; and the Client may use the Content in the creation of Works and modify, reproduce, transmit, or display the Content.
The Client may not allow the Content to be accessed by more than one user, or on-demand product, or for any other use not expressly granted in this section. For questions regarding use of Content or to clarify use details, POUNDPICS encourages Client to contact support@poundpics.co.uk.

advertising, editorial, and promotional projects. This includes but is not limited to promotional materials, product packaging, book covers, presentations, catalogues, magazines, or newspapers;

online, electronic, and mobile publications and applications for an unlimited number of impressions. This includes but is not limited to websites, e-book covers, online album or playlist covers, broadcast media, and mobile application or video game backgrounds or elements where the content is not contributing to the core value; or

any social media platform, but where no modification is made to the photograph or video, an attribution must accompany the social media post with specific mention of POUNDPICS.CO.UK. POUNDPICS asks that you consider properly embedding Content or limiting the file size of Content posted to social media as a best practice to protect the POUNDPICS copyright.

sell, sublicense, assign, convey, share, or transfer any Content, in whole or in part, or rights thereto to any person or entity except as expressly permitted under this Agreement; or

sell or distribute Content or Work containing Content in any way that allows the Content to be extracted, accessed, or downloaded as a stand-alone file; or

use, reproduce, distribute, or display the Content in a way that is considered by POUNDPICS or under applicable law, to be considered pornographic, obscene, infringing, or defamatory in nature or that would be reasonably likely to bring any person or property reflected in the Content into disrepute; or

take any action in connection with the Content that violates any law, regulation or statute in an applicable jurisdiction; or

post Content that has not been altered on social media or use the Content in an editorial manner without the following credit adjacent to the Content in print or in credits for audio/visual productions, including a link to www.POUNDPICS.com where technically feasible; or

use Content in any way that suggests or implies that any individual in the Content is personally endorsing any product, service, idea, or site, including but not limited to attributing quotes to or creating fake online profiles for an individual including promotion or marketing materials (for example, on political materials or dating apps); or

use the Content that includes an identifiable model in connection with a subject that would be unflattering, embarrassing, or unduly controversial to a reasonable person (and not otherwise restricted by Section 3(m)), without Client accompanying each use with a conspicuous statement that indicates that (i) the Content is being used for illustrative purposes only; and (ii) that the person depicted is a model. Such subjects include but are not limited to medical issues, menstruation, relationship concerns; or

use any Content that includes an identifiable model in a manner that depicts such person in a potentially sensitive subject matter; including, but not limited to actual or implied sexual activity, substance abuse and recovery, sexually transmitted infections, mental health concerns and disorders, abuse, abortion, promotion of tobacco use, or any implication that the model engages in activity that is immoral or illegal. The only exceptions to this restriction are Assets where it is clear that the intended purpose of the Asset is to convey such a sensitive use or where a Sensitive Use Extended License has been negotiated and purchased. For any questions related to what constitutes “identifiable” or “sensitive,” please contact support@poundpics.co.uk.

promptly providing the other party with written notice of any claim or threat of a claim;

Except for any liability which cannot by law be excluded or limited, in no event will the Indemnities’ total liability to the Client arising from this Agreement, or the use of any Content licensed hereunder, exceed one hundred GBP (£100) regardless of the number or type of claims and regardless of the number of times that the Client licenses the same content from POUNDPICS. The foregoing exclusions and limitations are applicable notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose.

The foregoing states the entire obligation of POUNDPICS and the other Indemnities, and the sole remedy of the Client, with respect to any breach of the representations and warranties above. This indemnity section will survive the termination of this Agreement.
