  1. You represent and warrant that you have full right and authority and if you are an individual, you are over 18 years of age and have the capacity to enter into and create binding legal obligations set out in this agreement.

  2. This Agreement is a license, not an agreement of sale. We will retain all other rights, including copyright and other proprietary rights in the Content, that are not specifically granted in this Agreement.

  3. Electronic Storage: For all Content that you take delivery of in electronic form, you must retain the copyright symbol, the name of Absolutevisuals and the order number, all metadata or other identification numbers associated with the Content may be included as part of the electronic file. You will take all reasonable measures to safeguard against unauthorized third-party access to the Content.

  4. Unauthorized Use: Any use of Content by you or your customers in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement or in breach of a term of this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, entitling Absolutevisuals to exercise all rights and remedies available under copyright laws around the world.

  7. Withdrawal: Absolutevisuals shall have the right to withdraw Content because of actual or threatened litigation with respect to the Content; any binding declaration or order issued by a competent court or government authority that prevents the content from being distributed; or any reason beyond our control. We shall give you as much advance notice as practicable of any such withdrawal. You acknowledge that our right to withdraw content pursuant to this paragraph is of a special and unique character which gives it a peculiar value and that your license or other exploitation of Content after the effective date of a notice of withdrawal could cause us irreparable injury and damage. You, therefore, agree that in addition to any right or remedy granted Absolutevisuals hereunder, we shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief against you to prevent any exploitation after the effective date of a notice of withdrawal.

  8. Third party: If you are agreeing to these terms on behalf of someone else (like your employer), you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind that third party.

If any provision or part thereof of this Agreement is stricken in accordance with the provisions of this section, then this stricken provision shall be replaced, to the extent possible, with a legal, enforceable, and valid provision that is as similar in tenor to the stricken provision as is legally possible.

  11. Interpretation: Words like ‘include’ and ‘including’ are not words of limitation and where anything is within our discretion we mean our sole discretion.

  12. Choice of Law: This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the European Union, without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. We shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against you in the event that, in our opinion, such action is necessary or desirable.

  13. Language of the Terms: Where Absolutevisuals has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the Terms, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Terms will govern your relationship with us. If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Terms says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.

  14.
