Terms and Conditions

USAGE OF IMAGES – PERSONAL LICENCE

This personal licence applies to those images where you have paid for a personal licence on the Corals website (‘Images’) and allows you to use Images for personal private use only. A separate business licence is available for business use.

We want you to enjoy these Images, but this is a personal licence so it’s only for you. The aim is for it to cover something like a personal greeting card, or perhaps a picture for your home, or your own purely personal website (and provided that the website isn’t going to generate an income for you or someone else).

You can give away a copy of the image to one person as a present, but they cannot make copies unless they sign up to a licence themselves. If you are wanting to do most other things with the Image you probably need the business licence or you may not be able to do it at all. Under this personal licence you definitely can’t do anything with the Image that will generate an income for you or anyone else directly or indirectly. If you are not sure then contact us admin@corals.photos

The collection of Images are publicly curated and their historical and cultural integrity is important and we ask you to respect this as you use the Images.

Now here comes the legal bit.

  1. This is a non-exclusive, revocable personal licence for you to use the Image only as specifically permitted in this personal licence. Any other use is not permitted under this personal licence. You will need to seek prior permission for other use. Further permission may not be granted in all cases.

Except as permitted in this personal licence no further copying, redistribution, sharing or resale of the Image is permitted without the express prior written consent of Corals.

  10. You acknowledge that Corals and The Image Owner make no representation that the Image will be not be available elsewhere in the same or alternate formats.

On written notice you will stop all such use and we may terminate this personal licence and on written request from you we may return to you any payment you have made to us in respect of that Image.
  12. We may terminate this licence on notice to you if you are in material breach of any of the terms. On termination for any reason, you right under this licence will end.
  13. We can give notice to you by email to the address provided to us when you purchase this licence.

    14. either individually or in combination with others, reproduce the Image, or an element of the Image, in excess of 10 times in physical (hard-copy) prints.

USAGE OF IMAGES – BUSINESS LICENCE

This business licence applies to those images where you have paid for a business licence on the Corals website (‘Images’) and allows your business to use Images for use by the business only.

We want your business to use these Images, but there are limitations. The licence is for your business only. If you want to pass this on to someone else, another business or any other third party, then they will need to buy their own separate business licence to cover their use. The aim is for it to cover something like your own business website, marketing materials that are given away (such as brochures or leaflets) or on a t-shirt on incidentally as part of an app, in each case that is not charged for in any way. If you are wanting to do other things then this business licence will not allow it. You would need separate permission which may not be available. Under this business licence you definitely can’t do anything with the Image that will generate an income for you or anyone else directly or indirectly. If you are not sure then contact us admin@corals.photos
