Terms and Conditions

  1. This is a licence agreement between Horizon Collective Ltd and its employees (the 'Licensor') and you ('the Licensee'). Any images and/or video or audio recordings supplied by the Licensor to the Licensee ('Materials') are detailed on the relevant invoice or proposal and are subject to the Standard Licensing Terms ("Terms") as detailed below and amended from time to time by the Licensor. Unauthorised use of any of the Licensor's Materials is prohibited and legal enforcement action may be taken. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the terms set out in the Particulars shall comprise the definitions herein.
  2. The Client shall use all reasonable endeavours to facilitate the performance of those elements of the Scope of Work to be performed by Horizon Collective Ltd including, but not limited to, co-operating with Horizon Collective Ltd, providing all data and other information reasonably required by Horizon Collective Ltd, providing access to any premises of the Client for the purpose of performance of the Production and Scope of Work.
  3. Where the Licensee fails to make payment of any invoice as per the payment terms specified on the invoice, the Licensor may without prejudice to any other remedy available to it suspend or revoke the Licensee's rights under this Agreement and / or charge interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until the date payment is made. The payment due date shall be determined solely by the payment terms stated on the Licensor's invoice. Where no term is specified, payment will be due 30 days following the date of invoice. The Licensee or its agents may not use the Materials in any way after the payment due date where payment has not yet been received by the Licensor. A payment is deemed received either when cash is delivered to the Licensor (by prior arrangement) and a timed receipt is issued or where funds are sent (either by electronic transfer or cheque) and those funds have cleared in the Licensor's bank account. This may include a delay of up to a further three working days to allow the Licensor to deposit any cheque. For the avoidance of doubt, it is the responsibility of the Licensee to ensure that funds are received by the Licensor on or before close of business on the payment due date. If payment has still not been received for ANY invoice 28 days after the payment due date, the Licensee's rights in respect of ALL overdue invoices will automatically be suspended until all overdue payments have been received in full. Any use of the Materials during the suspension period WILL be unauthorised and WILL incur a Penalty Charge of no less than 6 (six) times the Licensor's prevailing standard usage fee. For the avoidance of doubt, other unauthorised usage (including any usage after the payment due date but where payment has not been received) may incur all or part of the Penalty Charge at the sole discretion of the Licensor. Penalty charges must also be paid and received in full before the Licensee's rights are restored.
  4. Title to all IPR owned, created or developed by a party other than during the course of the Scope of Work (“Background IP”) shall remain with the party introducing the same. “IPR” means patents, registered designs, trademarks and service marks (whether registered or not), domain names, copyright, design right, trade secrets, know-how and all similar property rights in inventions, computer programs, designs and confidential information.
