      1. Altering, cropping and manipulating Content
        1. Content when used in a news context, whether sourced from the Alamy Limited Live News feed or the general collection, may be cropped or otherwise edited for technical quality, provided that the editorial integrity of the Content is not compromised, and the truth of the Content is maintained, but may not, under any circumstances, otherwise be altered.

      5. You acknowledge that the Content licensed to you may be original Content that has had certain preformatting changes carried out by Alamy Limited, as may be specified on the applicable Invoice. You are solely responsible for ensuring that the Content so altered is suitable and appropriate for your intended use. You agree that any altered Content that gives an untrue representation of reality should not be used for news or current events reporting.

      7. If any Content featuring a model is used in (i) a manner that would lead a reasonable person to believe that the model personally uses or endorses a product or service, or (ii) if the depiction of the model in the Content would be unflattering or unduly controversial to a reasonable person, you must accompany each such use with a statement indicating that the person is a model and the Content is being used for illustrative purposes only.

      15. You acknowledge that certain of the Content is provided to Alamy subject to arrangements (involving intellectual property and/or any other rights or otherwise), restrictions, or prohibitions imposed by Contributors on the use of such Content. You agree to: (i) comply with any such arrangements, restrictions, or prohibitions imposed by Alamy and/or its Contributors; and (ii) where appropriate, ensure that certain arrangements (including payment of any applicable third party license or other fee) are made directly with any such Contributor.

Unless the Content is marked as having a Release available on the Website at the time you download or order it, Alamy gives no representations or warranties whatsoever: (i) as to the existence of any Releases associated with the Content; or (ii) with respect to the use of names, trademarks, logos, uniforms, registered or copyrighted designs or artistic works depicted in any Content.

You will not rely upon any representation or warranty given by Alamy employees or representatives save as set out in this Agreement.
    3. Failure or refusal by you to secure the relevant Releases for Reproduction of the Content is considered a material breach of this Agreement and a breach of Intellectual Property rights, for which you will be solely liable and for which you will indemnify and hold harmless Alamy, the Contributors, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, successors, assigns, and all employees and agents. This indemnification is in addition to, not in lieu of, the indemnification set forth in Section 8 herein and will survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.

In the event of termination, all rights granted will immediately revert to us and any further exploitation of any Content may in some instances constitute an infringement of copyright and/or other Intellectual Property rights.
    2. The License is conditional on you not being aware of or having received, prior to licensing any Content, any correspondence, representations, complaints or claims from Alamy Limited, Alamy or third parties (collectively 'Claims') alleging that the Content in question is in breach of copyright or other third party Intellectual Property rights or is in some other way unauthorized. Any such Claims existing at the time the Content is purported to be Licensed will render any License granted void from the beginning. Any use of in-copyright Content in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement may constitute copyright infringement, entitling Alamy Limited and/or Alamy to exercise all rights and remedies available to it under copyright laws around the world. You will be responsible for any damages resulting from any such copyright infringement, including any Claims by a third party. In addition, and without prejudice to Alamy's other remedies under this Agreement, Alamy reserves the right to charge and you agree to pay a fee equal to up to five (5) times Alamy's standard License fee for the unauthorized use of the Content.
    3. No variation of any of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by Alamy and you.
    4. No action of Alamy, other than an express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any Clause of this Agreement. In the event that Alamy waives any specific part of this Agreement, such fact does not mean that any other part is waived.
    5. In the event of any inconsistency between the Terms and the terms contained in any purchase order or other communication sent by you, the Terms of this Agreement will prevail. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be void or unenforceable in whole or in part, this Agreement will continue in force in relation to the unaffected provisions and the remainder of the provision in question.
    6. Neither party will be liable to the other under or in connection with this Agreement for any failures, interruptions, delays or other matters of a similar nature arising out of circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
    7. Subject to Clause 3.1.13, neither party will assign, sub-contract, sub-license or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
    8. In the event Alamy retains an attorney or collection agency to collect any outstanding payment due by you, you agree to pay all collection costs, attorneys' fees and court costs relating thereto, in addition to any outstanding amounts due and applicable interest.
    9. The validity of this Agreement and the interpretation and performance of all of its terms will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, U.S.A., without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Any disputes arising from or related to this agreement will be finally settled by binding, confidential arbitration by a single arbitrator selected using the rules and procedures for arbitrator selection under the JAMS’ Expedited Procedures in its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS”) or of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") in effect on the date of the commencement of arbitration (the applicable rules to be at your discretion) to be held in New York. The arbitration proceedings will be conducted in English and all documentation will be presented and filed in English. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered on the arbitration award and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this agreement. The prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable legal costs relating to that aspect of its claim or defense on which it prevails, and any opposing costs awards will be offset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Alamy will 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 the opinion of Alamy, such action is necessary or desirable to protect its intellectual property rights. The parties agree that, notwithstanding any otherwise applicable statute(s) of limitation, any arbitration proceeding will be commenced within two years of the acts, events or occurrences giving rise to the claim.
    10. You recognize that the Content possess a special, unique and extraordinary character which makes difficult the assessment of monetary damages which Alamy or the Contributors might sustain by an unauthorized use. You agree that irreparable injury would be caused to Alamy or the Contributors by such unauthorized use, and that injunctive relief may be appropriate in the event of breach of this Agreement.
    11. If after notice to you, you fail to take any action which you are obliged to take hereunder, Alamy and the Contributors will have the right and option, but not the duty, to bring an action for specific performance to compel such action, and obtain all reasonable costs, expenses, attorney's fees and disbursements with respect thereto if such specific performance is awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction.
    12. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective legal representatives, successors, and assigns.
    13. This Agreement supersedes all prior understandings both oral and written between the Parties and constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties.
