About this website terms agreement

These terms and conditions are for a website that licenses use of soft copy products using a differential price model for different types of use.

For example, you may sell photographic images, and depending on how the photo is used, whether in a printed brochure or on a website, charge different prices for use.

There are several pricing options, all of which can be edited to suit your business model. For example, you can choose between fixed prices, or price by reference to a formula. You could sell on a one-off basis, or on a renewable subscription basis.

You may be the owner of the copyright in the product, or the product could be owned by a third party with whom you have made a marketing/resale arrangement. Most importantly, it provides the most simple way to deal with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

Many soft products require backup or support of some sort in a hard medium, such as on DVD or CD. The agreement covers that too, with provision for distance selling, delivery, returns and so on.

Again, there are many further simple options, for example as to: sub-licensing, copying, removing ID references, prohibited uses. You do not need to add anything. You simply delete what you do not need.

Alternatives to this agreement
