Includes any form of copying or publication of the whole or part of any Image/Video whether by printing, slide projection or other display (whether or not to an audience), electronic, digital or mechanical means, use as a reference by an artist or in an artist's illustration or by any other means. Reproduction further includes the copying or distortion or manipulation of the whole or part of any Image/Video (for example, by computer, electronically, digitally by an artist or by any other means), even though the resulting image or clip may not appear to a reasonable person to be derived from the original Image/Video.

The parties to this contract are Alamy and you. Alamy has been appointed agent by its Contributors to grant this License on their behalf.
Please note, not all of Alamy's Images/Videos have Releases. It is your responsibility to check that all necessary Releases have been secured (see clause 8.3 below).
When exercising this right you must ensure any notice of copyright, trademark or other propriety right is not removed from any place where it is placed on or embedded in the Image/Video.
Any Reproduction by you or on your behalf without reporting of use as soon as practicable, and in any event within 4 months, and payment being received by Alamy constitutes a breach of this Agreement which entitles Alamy immediately to terminate this Agreement and further constitutes an infringement of copyright and other Intellectual Property rights.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Alamy, its Contributors and their respective parents, subsidiaries, successors, assigns, and all employees and agents thereof against any and all claims, damages, losses, expenses or costs, including but not limited to any reasonable attorney's fees, arising out of any unauthorized use or allegedly unauthorized use of any Image/Video supplied to you by Alamy, on behalf of a Contributor, or any other breach by you of any of your obligations under this Agreement. The terms of this clause 7 shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.
The License Fee depends on the nature of the rights granted. You agree to notify Alamy in the event that you desire to expand the usage for the Image/Video and pay any additional License Fee. Use of an Image/Video in a manner not specifically authorised under the terms set out in the Invoice or otherwise in the Agreement constitutes a breach of the Agreement and an infringement of copyright.
If you haven't used the Image file you can cancel the license and get a full refund within 30 days of the invoice date.
