All Photographs are protected by copyright and intellectual property regulations. The CINETOF website remains the sole owner of the intellectual property rights on the Photographs delivered. The material ownership of the medium upon which the Photographs are displayed does not transfer any intellectual property right.
The Licensee may not claim, in any way whatsoever, that it is the original creator of a work in which the Licensed Photograph constitutes a large part of the visual composition.
If the Photograph is Reproduced on a website, the Licensee must make its best efforts to mention on the said website that any new publication, retransmission, reproduction or other use of this Photograph is forbidden.
When the Buyer acquires a License on behalf of a Licensee, the Buyer warrants that it is authorized to act on behalf of the Licensee.
The Photograph may be subject to any Modification deemed necessary by the Licensee in connection with its use in the Project, including any reframing, distortion, alteration or manipulation and the creation of any Work derived from the Photograph, or incorporating the Photograph.
The Photographs available on the CINETOF website do not require additional authorizations to be used in a Project and all the elements incorporated in the Photographs are deemed to be included and authorized (including the authorizations from the persons in the photographs, brand rights, authorizations for architectural monuments, etc.)
4. Limitation of use
Each of the purchased Photographs may be used for one application only.The License Agreement for the use of a Photograph is linked to a given Single Project, and any new use of the Photograph shall be subject to a new License and payment of the corresponding royalties.
The same Photograph may be purchased by the same Buyer on behalf of several companies, subject to the purchasing of a License for each of the concerned customers and payment of the corresponding royalties.
If the modifications of framing of the Photographs by the licensee isolate physical persons, works of art, buildings or any other element potentially subject to copyright so that they become the main subject of the photographs, their use is not guaranteed by CINETOF and it will be necessary for the licensee to obtain by himself the authorizations for their use.
The Licensee is not allowed to include the Photograph(s):
- for unlawful uses, directly or indirectly, such as (but not limited to) defamatory, pornographic, offensive, obscene, immoral or uses in violation of the laws of the country in which the Photograph is used or displayed;
- to portray a person visibly in the Photograph in an offensive manner, including, but not limited to, the representation of a Model: a) in a context related to pornography, “adult videos”, adult entertainment venues, escort services, dating services, or other such services; (b) in a context related to the advertising or promotion of tobacco products; (c) in a political context, such as for the promotion, advertising or support of a political party, candidate, elected representative or in connection with a political strategy or opinion; (d) as suffering from, or under treatment for, a mental or physical condition; or e) engaging in criminal or immoral activities;
- to use the image, or part of this image in the realization of a logo or a brand;
- in an electronic process intended to enable third parties to make Reproductions of them on electronic or printed products;
- in a way that allows others to upload, extract or redistribute the Photograph as a stand-alone file (i.e. only the content file itself, separate from the project or end use);
- for any use other than those defined in the License.
A License allows for the Reproduction of a Photograph on a series of objects (mugs, t-shirts or others) within the limit of 100 copies per object. Any additional Reproduction will be subject to the purchase of a new License, always within the limit of 100 physical reproductions per License. For a large series, a License may be purchased as many times as necessary. For example, for a series of 1,200 coffee mugs, the Buyer must purchase the desired Photograph 12 times in order to be able to reproduce it on the 1,200 objects.
The Photographs are protected by copyright and must therefore be used as with any other protected product. The moral rights arising from the French Intellectual Property Code, including the right to the name and the respect the integrity of the work, are inalienable, and must be respected in all circumstances, within the limits of the Modifications authorized in this License.

9. Unauthorized use and termination

In the event of unauthorized use, the Licensee agrees to pay compensation in an amount of at least ten times the amount of the Royalty fee as posted on this Website, with a minimum of fifty Euros.
