This website imagerights.com (the "Site") is owned and operated by ImageRights International, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("ImageRights" or "we" or "us").
ImageRights provides the "ImageRights Services" (as described below) solely in connection with and subject to the following Terms and Conditions of Service, which shall include any posted applicable guidelines or rules governing the Site (as defined below), and all of which may be modified by us, in our sole discretion, from time to time as set forth in paragraph 16 below (individually and collectively, "Terms of Service" or "TOS").
By accessing this Site and using the ImageRights Services, You, as a Customer (as defined below), are accepting and agreeing to be bound by all of these Terms of Service. If You do not agree to these Terms of Service, You may not use this Site or any of our services.
In addition to accepting and agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service, Customers that register to ImageRights Services explicitly agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of their applicable Recovery Service Agreement and agree that services provided to registered Customers can and only will be provided upon execution of and subject to an applicable mutually executed Recovery Service Agreement, which may be modified by us, in our sole discretion.
Overview of ImageRights Services
This Site and the Content (as defined below) are intended for the use of Customers ("Customers" or "Subscribers" or “You”) to the ImageRights Services.
The ImageRights Services include but are not limited to the utilization of a multitude of image search, fingerprinting and matching algorithms and technologies to identify and report uses of Customer’s images (“Sightings”) previously uploaded to their account on our Site.
When the ImageRights Services report a Sighting to the Customer, the Customer reviews the report to determine if the Sighting is an authorized use. If the Customer determines that the use is unauthorized (“Claim”), the Customer must submit the Claim to ImageRights for assessment pursuant to the applicable Recovery Service Agreement for that Customer, which, among other things, authorizes ImageRights to act as the Customer's representative in seeking a fee from the alleged unauthorized user of the work (“Infringer”) in exchange for a release from liability for the Claim (“Release”).
If ImageRights is unable to execute a Release with the Infringer and such resolution seems unlikely, ImageRights will notify the Customer regarding additional courses of action, including referral to and/or the engagement of legal counsel for the possible initiation of litigation or other legal action.
ImageRights reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the ImageRights Services (or any portion thereof) with or without notice. You agree that ImageRights shall not be liable to You or to any third party for any modification, suspension or termination of the ImageRights Services (or any portion thereof).
