4. Metadata Removal
When you receive the image from me the image file will have data embedded in it identifying me as the copyright holder. This is known as metadata and is not generally visible to the online/print viewer. It is a condition of my contract & licensing terms that this metadata should not be be altered or removed under any circumstances, even if you have paid the enhanced rate for uncredited use. Neither should any actions be undertaken that obscure my ownership of the work(s). The reason for this is that if the metadata is removed the image may not be able to be traced back to me, and become ‘orphaned’. If an image is licensed from me and the metadata is changed or removed, you agree that £195 shall be payable for that change/removal in addition to any fees paid to secure licensing rights.
