General conditions regarding the use of images
With a normal delivery you have no exclusivity. The same images or articles can also be supplied or have already been supplied to third parties. Exclusivity can be obtained under additional conditions.
Photographs and articles are copyrighted. You may therefore not copy and publish them without permission, with or without acknowledgment of the source. After payment you receive the rights for the reproduction of the work. All other rights reserved.
Reproduction in other media is not permitted without the prior permission of the author and without additional conditions.
If the work is used without permission, for whatever purpose, legal action will be taken. You will not only have to pay for normal use, but penalties will be added.
You obtain the rights if two basic conditions are met. Whenever possible, the name Bart Heirweg - www.bartheirweg.com is mentioned in the publication. That is preferably with each individual photo or article, or in the colophon with the page numbers where the work appeared. Example: "© Bart Heirweg - www.bartheirweg.com". A second condition is a reimbursement which is paid via an invoice.
After the conditions have been met you may use the image as it is supplied. Radical digital processing is not permitted. If you wish to make major changes, please contact us in advance.
Preferably a copy of the publication is delivered to Bart Heirweg Landscape Photographer. If agreed in advance this can also be a binding condition.
Any cost arising from, for example, an international payment or other bank charges is for the account of the customer.
All deliveries are made digitally, via the internet or via CD / DVD. If original image material (eg slides) is sent, this is always done at the explicit request of the customer. In that case the customer is responsible for the undamaged return. In the event of damage or loss by the customer or a third party, whether or not involved in the publication, compensation will be requested. An image that is not returned within three months after sending is considered lost.
Any permission for reproduction and for public communication is granted in person and cannot be transferred to third parties without the prior permission of the author and / or his beneficiary.
The use of the delivered works is the sole responsibility of the user. He alone is responsible for obtaining the necessary permits with regard to the persons or works depicted on the works, as well as for the published captions and the context in which the works are reproduced.
