The following EyeEm Market License Terms shall apply to all licenses granted by EyeEm Mobile GmbH, Kohlfurter Straße 41/43, 10999 Berlin, Germany (“EyeEm”) to a license buyer (“Buyer”) with regard to images marketed by EyeEm through its platform www.eyeem.com (“Image”). All uses of an Image must comply with these License Terms. Any terms and conditions of the Buyer shall not apply and are deemed invalid.
Upon full payment of the License Fee, EyeEm grants the Buyer the non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable right to use the Image (as identified on the respective invoice) in accordance with these License Terms for the applicable license type (“License”) as follows:
The Buyer may not:
(a) use the Image in any other way or form than expressly set forth in the License for the applicable license type;
(b) use an Image if the image caption does not expressly state “Release(s) on file”; in such cases, the Buyer is solely responsible to obtain all necessary consents from third parties for the intended use;
(c) resell, redistribute or sublicense the Image and/or to transfer the License to any third party and/or to share with or provide any third party access to (including as a digital file) the Image;
(d) use the Image in connection with content that is illegal, offensive, defamatory, racist, pornographic, youth protection law-infringing or glorifies violence;
(e) use the Image in any other manner that affects the integrity or original context of the Image; this applies in particular with regards to the persons depicted in the Image;
(f) include the Image, in whole or in part, in a logo, trademark, service mark, corporate ID or other indication of origin; or
(g) falsely represent (expressly or by way of reasonable implication) the true copyright owner(s) or the author(s) of the Image.
In case of sensitive uses as e.g. the depiction of persons or objects in a context which a reasonable person would likely consider as unfavorable, embarrassing or unduly controversial (e.g. sexually transmitted diseases, mental illness, fake stories, dating agencies etc.) the Buyer must prominently indicate that the Image is used for illustrative purposes and that depicted person is a model.
Buyer shall attribute a photo credit to the photographer only if such credit is customary in the industry and in case of editorial uses.
If the License is acquired by a legal entity such as a company or organization, multi-seat use is included. This means that in a company or organization, multiple persons - namely employees or anyone who agrees to abide by these License Terms - may use the Image for the purposes of the company/organization. If the License is acquired by a natural person, the License is limited to a single-seat use, which means that only the Buyer can use the Image.
If the Buyer is an advertising agency, communication or branding agency (“Agency”), who acquires the License for the use by its customer, the Agency is entitled to assign the licensed rights to its customer, subject to the following conditions:
(a) the name (legal entity) of the customer must be communicated to EyeEm,
(b) the Agency shall be prohibited to charge its customer more than the License Fee paid to EyeEm,
(c) the Agency is liable with regard to any violations of these license terms by its customer and will indemnify and hold harmless EyeEm against any and all claims, damages, liabilities and expenses arising out of any unauthorized use of the Image or any other breach of these License Terms by its customer; and
(d) the Agency may not use the Image for its own purposes or for any other customer. The Agency expressly acknowledges and agrees that it must acquire a new license for each additional customer.
The License Fee payable for acquiring the License is indicated in the buying process. Value-added tax will be calculated at checkout based on your country and account type. The Buyer is responsible for payment of any applicable taxes associated with the Image. This is a royalty-free license, which means the Buyer pays a one-time License Fee and no further royalties have to be paid, unless the Buyer wants to use the Image in a different context, for a different purpose or needs to upgrade the License to a higher license type. In this case, the Buyer needs to acquire a new license.
