Supply Of Digital Prints

1. No rights, other than the display of the physical print, are transferred on purchase of a print. Images must not be copied, modified or shared in any manner.

2. All orders from the UK will be charged VAT at the current UK rate.

3. How my images are displayed on this website is down to the display characteristics of the device on which they are being viewed. Furthermore, images displayed in most web browsers are not colour accurate. Some colour variation is therefore inevitable and prints may not match the images displayed on your device.

4. Returns

a. Under the Distance Selling Regulations you have the right to cancel an order and return any Fine Art Prints already dispatched up to 7 days from receipt. If you have changed your mind for any reason, we will refund the full purchase price provided the prints are returned, at your expense, in their original packaging and in their original condition.

b. Canvas Prints are custom made to order and cannot be returned if you change your mind.

c. Any prints received damaged will be replaced without charge however you must report damage to us with 24 hours of receipt.

Supply Of Images

1. The Images shall be deemed to have been received complete and in good condition, unless we receive notification of any discrepancy or damage within 48 hours of receipt.

Licence for Use of Images

2. The reproduction by whatever means of the whole or any part of any Image is strictly forbidden without our specific permission.

3. No reproduction rights are granted by virtue of delivery of Images unless expressly indicated. Your right to reproduce an Image arises only if
a. licence terms are agreed and
b. my invoice relating to the grant of such right is fully paid.

Any reproduction before payment of the invoice or outside the terms of any licence constitutes an infringement of copyright and also a breach of this Agreement entitling us to claim damages. You must indemnify us in respect of any claims, damages, costs or expenses we incur arising from any reproduction of any Image supplied to you.

4. You must satisfy yourself that all necessary rights and consents which may be required for reproduction are obtained and that the use of any image is not obscene, indecent, libellous or unlawful. We make no claim or warranty with regard to your use of content, names, text, people, trademarks or copyright material depicted in any Image and you will indemnify us in respect of any claims, damages, costs or expenses we incur arising from the use of any Image supplied to you.

5. Whilst we make every effort to ensure we have used accurate caption and keyword information, we make no guarantee that such information is accurate.

6. Reproduction rights (if granted), unless otherwise agreed in writing, are

a. subject to these terms and conditions and any terms and conditions set out in the delivery note and licence,
b. non-exclusive reproduction rights for single use only in the United Kingdom. A single use means a reproduction in one size for one edition of a single publication, published in one language only,
c. strictly limited to the use, period of time and territory stated in the licence,
d. personal to you and not assignable by you to any third party.

7. If we agree that you may license the use of any Image to any third party, you shall enter into an agreement with such third party to ensure that they are bound by licence terms restricting printing, copying, networking, multiple access or other use of the Images to personal use only, forbidding the assignment, resale, rental and lending of the Image and ensuring that credit is given to us and the author.

8. You must credit us as specified every time an Image is used unless a non credit license has been purchased. Please credit images as ©Craig Joiner Photography. For images used on websites you must include a link to http://craigjoiner.com, preferably on the same page. If you fail to credit the image an additional 100% of the original licence fee will be payable.

Digital Use of Images

10. You acknowledge that Images are our valuable property, including Digital Images.

11. You may not create, store or transmit Digital Images without our permission except so far as is incidentally and wholly necessary to the process of producing items licensed by us. If permission is granted the following conditions apply:

12. Each Digital Image created by you shall be recorded and labelled with the Image reference number used by us and our copyright credit information as an integral part of the image file, and held on an electronic database under your sole possession and control.

13. You agree to destroy all Digital Images including any pre-press or pre-production copies of the Images and any copies or records of the Images held on a database within 90 days of the date of receipt of the Images or completion of the maximum production run, or expiry of the licence term, whichever is later.


14. You may download low-resolution watermarked images from the website for comp and layout purposes only. You may not use watermarked images in any final products for distribution in printed or electronic form. You may not modify or remove any visible or invisible electronic watermark.

16. You must pay our invoice within 30 days of issue. However in the case of newspaper, periodical and broadcasting use only, if we agree in advance, you may pay by the end of the calendar month immediately following publication or use, or within six months of the issue of our invoice, whichever is sooner.

17. If you do not pay in accordance with these terms then we may at our option rescind this Agreement and recover damages, or charge interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until payment is made.

18. Any licence granted will terminate immediately if you (a) die, (b) enter into voluntary or compulsory liquidation; (c) have a receiver appointed; or (d) fail to perform any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions within 28 days of our giving you notice to comply.

19. In the event of termination, all rights granted will immediately revert to us and any further exploitation of any Image shall constitute an infringement of copyright.

20. Any publication right (as defined in the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 1996) arising from your use of any Image shall vest in us and you hereby assign all such rights arising to us.

21. Our failure to exercise or enforce any of our rights will not be deemed to be a waiver of such rights nor bar their exercise or enforcement in future.

22. Should any disagreement arise between us, we shall, if we both agree, first try to settle it by a mediation procedure recommended by the BPLC.

23. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties agree to submit the jurisdiction of the English courts, such jurisdiction to be exclusive, save for infringement of copyright or non payment of our invoices where it will be non-exclusive.
