Sending of files via data transfer or online storage
Any high resolution file/s attached or linked to online storage or sent via data transfer sent are essentially ’digital negatives’ they are therefore never to be placed in the public domain and are not allowed for any online or social media use

To remove any confusion they should be saved to a desktop or laptop, not tablets or smart phones as those devices will remove the clearly assigned file names that had PRINT ONLY within them. 

WEB FRIENDLY version can be also be provided if social media promotion of PRINT ONLY high resolution files is needed to compliment the licensed printed work.

PRINT ONLY files placed in the public domain will immediately any break license agreement and therefore result in an additional cost.

If the file/s or link to online storage does need to be sent to another party within our agreement then the source email ‘thread’ and text will must be included and you must direct the recipient to read my footnote and terms. You may also wish to copy in an Andrew Ogilvy Photography email so that it may absolve you of liability in potential misuse.

In downloading any image within an email/data transfer sent from Andrew Ogilvy Photography, accessed via online storage or data transfer, you hereby agree that you have read, understand and accept all of Andrew Ogilvy Photography's terms of business

Andrew Ogilvy Photography will always retain full image rights worldwide, in any work commissioned or undertaken unless agreed in writing before any booking, fee is agreed or any photography takes place.
