Occasionally, we may restrict access to some parts of our website to users who have registered with us. When using our website, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account. You agree to accept responsibility for any and all activities, or actions, that occur under your account. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our website through your Internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they will comply with them as well.
You are not allowed to use this website, and/or receive products and services, if doing so is prohibited in your country, or under any law or regulation applicable to you.
3. LICENSING PHOTOGRAPHS
You can use this website to purchase stock photography usage licenses for the commercial or personal use of the presented photographs.
A commercial use license is needed, if you or your organisation intends to use the photograph for business or work purposes. This includes but is not limited to editorial use, advertising, websites, photographic or lithographic prints in a commercial space, printed materials including brochures, posters, t-shirts, flyers, or any item that incorporates the image to create a sale or is for sale.
We use a rights-managed licensing model to determine the licensing fee for commercial use licenses. This means that you, or your organization, will be buying a license for a specific purpose, for a specific region, for a set period of time, to be used within your organization only.
The licensing fee will vary based on these parameters, and we will provide you with a personalized quote.
A personal use license is appropriate when you intend to use the photograph in a strictly personal circumstance. Personal use includes, but is not limited to, a print to hang in your home, as a screensaver, in wedding announcements, and in online personal profiles, etc. This license, however, prohibits you from using the photograph for anything but strictly personal use, and in some cases limited educational use. The fee for a personal use license will depend on the image size that you select, and the price will be clearly displayed before you complete your purchase of the license.
Upon purchasing a stock photography license from us, you declare that you accept anettemossbacher.com’s Terms in full. In addition, you agree that (i) you are responsible for reading the full license agreement before making a commitment to purchasing a usage license: (ii) you are entering into a legally binding contract to purchase a license – when you commit to buying a license, and you complete the check-out payment process.
Once payment has been received, you will be able to download the purchased photograph.
If you purchased a personal license, you will be able to download a .jpg version of the photograph in the Adobe RGB color space. The size of the download will be in line with the licensing that you purchased.
If you purchased a commercial license, you will be able to download a full-sized Jpg file version of the photograph in the Adobe RGB 1998 color space.
For security reasons, the photograph will only be available for download in your account section for five days from the date of purchase. After that period, we will provide you with a new download link upon request.
4. PURCHASING PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS AND LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
You can use this website to purchase photographic prints and limited edition photo prints. When buying a print from anettemossbacher.com, you agree that: (i) you are responsible for reading the full printing information and item description before making a commitment to buy it: (ii) you will be entering into a legally binding contract to purchase a photographic print or limited edition print – when you have committed to buying the print and you have completed the check-out payment process.
The prices we charge for our photographic prints and limited edition prints are listed on the website. We reserve the right to change our prices for any prints, at anytime, and to correct pricing errors that may have inadvertently occurred.
Print orders can be cancelled, or changed, as long as the actual printing process has not yet been initiated.
Please contact us as soon as possible if you wish to cancel or change a print order.
Additional information about pricing and sales tax is available on the purchasing a print FAQ page.
5. BUYING SERVICES
We offer photographic workshops, as well as photography adventure tours, and the option to hire us for photography assignments. We will provide you with a personalized quote for the fees regarding these services, and any other charges that you may incur in connection with your use of these services; once the scope, location, and timing of the services, have been discussed and clarified.
For all of our fine art prints, we only use high-quality museum grade papers. These papers comply with the ISO 9706 standard for maximum longevity. They are expected to last at least a century. Therefore we offer a lifetime warranty against fading and will replace the print at no charge for as long as you own it.
For stock photography licenses, we do not offer a warranty. Digital versions of licensed stock photographs are provided, as they are. If you would like to make sure that the image quality is in line with your expectations prior to purchasing, we will gladly send you a sample of the photograph.
7. RETURN AND REFUND
Our photographic prints and limited edition prints are carefully packed. Should your print be damaged in transit, please contact us directly after your print arrives. We would need you to attach a photograph of the damaged print and packaging in your correspondence to us. Once we have confirmed the damage, return the print to us, and we will send you a new photographic print free of charge.
To keep your photographic prints and limited edition prints looking perfect, they should be handled with great care, and framed as soon as possible. We recommend the use of cotton gloves when handling your prints and do not rub the surface of the print! The delicate surface of photographic printing papers is less resistant to scratches than that of other kinds of paper.
Note: We cannot be held responsible for damage that occurs during the framing or mounting of your print! We strongly encourage you to frame your prints with a professional.
When a print is damaged in transit, we will pay for the shipment of a new replacement photographic print to you. You will be responsible for the return shipment of the damaged print back to us. If we are unable to replace the print within a reasonable time, you will be entitled to a full refund.
As mentioned in Section 6 “Warranties”, we do not offer refunds for stock photography licensing purchases. We do offer the possibility to upgrade your license to a more comprehensive license upon request.
