4. Users’ Use of the Library

4.1 Users can use the Library to purchase a licence from Members to use Content.

4.2 The Library offers two types of licences: (i) One Use Licence; and (ii) Unlimited Use Licence, as follows:

  • 4.2.1 The One Use Licence means the User has the right to use the Content once, as set out in your order form when you purchase the licence;

  • 4.2.2 The Unlimited Use Licence means there is no expiry or end date on the User’s right to use the Content and the User can use the Content an unlimited amount of times;

  • 4.2.3 Unless otherwise specified, licences are worldwide, meaning Users have the right to use the Content in any geographic territory, and are non-exclusive, meaning that Members can license the same Content to other Users.

  • 4.2.4 For the purpose of this Section 4, “use” means to copy, reproduce, edit, synchronise, perform, display, broadcast, publish, or otherwise make use of. Please note the Restricted Uses section below for exceptions.

4.3 Restricted Uses

  • 4.3.1 No unlawful use – Users may not use the Content in a pornographic, defamatory, lewd or otherwise illegal manner, whether directly or by juxtaposition with other materials.

  • 4.3.2 No standalone file use – Users may not use the Content in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute the Content as a standalone file (meaning just the Content file itself, separate from the project or end use).

  • 4.3.3 No false representation or authorship: Users may not falsely represent that they are the original creator of a work that is made up largely of the Content. For example, a User cannot create a film based solely on the Content and claim that it is the author.

  • 4.3.4 No use in trademark or logo – Users may not use the Content as part of a trademark, design mark, trade name, business name, service mark, or logo.

  • 4.3.5 No sensitive use without disclaimer – If the Content features an individual and that Content is used in connection with a subject that would be unflattering or unduly controversial to a reasonable person, the User must indicate: (1) that the Content is being used for illustrative purposes only; and (2) and that the person depicted in the Content is not endorsing or promoting the subject.

4.4 Who Can Use the Content Besides the User?

  • 4.4.1 The One Use Licence and Unlimited Use Licence are both non-transferable and non-sublicensable, meaning that Users cannot sell, rent, give, sub-license or otherwise transfer to anyone the Content or the right to use the Content. However, there are two exceptions:
    (a) Employer or Client – If a User is purchasing a licence on behalf of its employer or client, then the employer or client can use the Content. In that case the User represents and warrants that it has full legal authority to bind the employer or client to these Terms. If the User does not have that authority, then the employer or client may not use the Content.
    (b) Subcontractors – Users may allow subcontractors or distributors to use the Content in any production or distribution process related to the final project or end use. These subcontractors and distributors may not use the Content for any other purpose.

  • 4.4.2 Users may store the Content in a digital library network configuration or similar arrangement to allow it to be viewed within their organisation and by their clients but they must retain any source credit, any copyright notices, the Content’s identification number and any other information as may be invisibly embedded or visibility provided within the electronic files containing the Content.

  • 4.4.3 Each User is responsible for its user account, and agrees to: (a) maintain the security of its password and username; (b) notify Us immediately of any unauthorised use or other breach of security; and (c) accept all responsibility for activity that occurs under its account. We reserve the right to monitor downloads and user activity to ensure compliance with these Terms. We may suspend access to User accounts at any time in our sole discretion.

4.5 Users may only use Content in accordance with the relevant licence, not for any Restricted Purposes and not in any other way. Users should contact the relevant Members directly if they require any additional or extended rights.

4.6 Each User will immediately notify Us if it becomes aware or suspect that any third party has gained access to the Content in breach of these Terms, is wrongfully using the Content, in whole or in part, or is violating any of Our or any third party intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, trademarks and copyrights, as applicable

4.7 Users can terminate their account on the Library by following the relevant instructions. Termination does not affect the User’s liability to pay fees for licences granted under Paragraph 4.

4.8 Each User indemnifies Us from any claims or actions, expenses or costs (including without limitation legal costs) incurred in respect of any claim arising from any breach or alleged breach by it (or anyone acting on its behalf) of any of these Terms.

5. Intellectual Property Rights

5.1 The ownership of all intellectual property rights in Content remain with the relevant Member; Users are just granted a right to use the Content on the terms above.

5.2 Users must ensure that the DSR source credit and the Content’s identification number, which appear in the Content file , remain with the digital copy of the Content at all times. Users must retain any DSR source credit, the name of the Member if applicable, the respective Content identification number and any other information or metadata (the “Content Information”) that is embedded in or provided with the electronic file that comprises any Content downloaded from the Library or otherwise received from Us. Failure to maintain the integrity of the Content Information referred to in this clause will constitute a breach of these Terms.

5.3 In connection with the use of “Drone Safe Register” or any other of Our, or Our partners’ trade names, trademarks, logos or service marks (“Marks”), Users acknowledge and agree that (i) such Marks are and shall remain the sole property of Us or Our partners; (ii) nothing shall confer any right of use in or to the Marks, except as necessary to give attribution; and (iii) Users shall not now or in the future contest the validity of the Marks.
