Copyright

All photographed images and illustrations (‘image[s]’) are the property and copyright of Ryland Peters and Small Ltd (incl. CICO Books Ltd). Images owned by Ryland Peters and Small Ltd and managed by Loupe Images are protected under National and International Copyright Laws. No images or their parts may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical or otherwise without prior written permission from Loupe Images. Loupe Images is assertive in pursuing circumstances where it perceives the copyright of its work has been breached and where it perceives the law has been broken.

Image Licensing

All images requested and purchased through Loupe Images are offered on an individual licence basis and are non-exclusive. The copyright of the image is always retained by Ryland Peters and Small Ltd (incl. CICO Books Ltd) and managed by Loupe Images. The licences serve to protect the rights of Ryland Peters and Small Ltd and Loupe Images. When an image is licensed, there will be standard terms and conditions of use outlined with your specific usage rights. This takes effect once the licence has been agreed, with the full Loupe Images licensing and purchasing terms.

Usage Rights: When images are licensed by Loupe Images, the usage is specified on the invoice and cannot be used for any other purpose and may not be transferred by you to a third party (including secondary rights) or publication without further agreement by Loupe Images. The licence will state the media use, duration rights and the territories for the usage. Reproduction of an image may only take place once licence terms have been agreed and a licence granted, and all confirmed in writing. Following Loupe Images permission to use an image, all images must be destroyed after use or on expiry of the licence term and must not be stored beyond this date unless our express permission is given in writing. Any use of images not abiding to these conditions will be considered as a breach of these terms and an infringement of copyright. As a result we reserve the right to claim any damages that this incurs.

Licensing and Purchasing Terms: By downloading images from our website, either as a new payment or with an agreed pricing arrangement with Loupe Images, you are agreeing to Loupe Images non-transferrable Licensing and Purchasing Terms, which accompany all downloaded files and products, and outlines the terms and conditions of the licence.

Usage Fee: A fee is generally payable to license any rights-managed image. The fee is based on how the image is going to be used. This will be calculated by such factors as the media use, the reproduction size and position, period of use, size of print run and distribution territory. Loupe Images calculate this fee by relying in good faith on the information provided by the licensee. Incorrect information can lead to a surcharge on the originally agreed fee and may lead to a cancellation of the licence. If an invoice issued by Loupe Images for the usage fee is not paid in full by the terms of the invoice, the licence will be cancelled, and non-payment will be considered as a breach of these terms. As a result we reserve the right to claim any damages that this incurs. Images may not be re-sold, rented or reassigned by you and any third-party use must be agreed by us under licence in accordance with these terms.

Cropping and Image Manipulation: The rights to alter any photograph rests with Ryland Peters and Small Ltd, and Loupe Images will seek their opinion on any alteration request.

Captions: All images must be reproduced with or in the spirit of an accompanying caption. If there is any doubt by the licensee, then verification should be sought before publication.

Credit Lines: With all editorial rights-managed images, the copyright holder/photographer should be credited with any reproduction of their work. The credit line should read © Loupe Images/[Photographer's or Illustrator’s name]. The preferable location for this credit line is immediately adjacent to the image or in the acknowledgements or credits section. For all commercial and advertising uses, we would request that the licensee would use reasonable effort to provide the same credit line. Failure to do so may incur an additional charge of 20% of the original licence fee.

Published Images: Loupe Images requests at least two copies of any publication featuring an image reproduction upon publication.

Intellectual Property Right/Model Release: The licensee is responsible for clearing all necessary permissions from third parties, be they people, buildings, art, artistic craftsmanship, animals, which may include trademarks, personality rights, property rights, fine art rights, etc. The licensee shall indemnify and hold Loupe Images harmless against any and all claims, liability, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of the use of any images for which:
(a) no release was furnished by Loupe Images in writing,
(b) the use of any images exceeds the scope of the release provided by Loupe Images.
The licensee will also indemnify and hold Loupe Images harmless against all claims, liability, damages and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) in connection with any third party claim arising out of the use of the images, including, but not limited to, defamation, right of privacy, right of publicity and obscenity claims. Loupe Images’ liability for all claims shall not exceed in any event the total amount invoiced per particular image. Loupe Images makes no representation or warranty with respect to the use of any names, trademarks or works of art depicted in any image or the accuracy of captions accompanying any images.
