Image may not be used as trademark, service mark or logo unless copyright release is purchased.

Images will not be sub-licensed, assigned, transferred, given away, made available via online or other database including but not limited to Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest and similar sharing sites.
The exception to this is if you have licensed the image for a client (website, advertising, etc) when you must keep detailed records and make them available to Don Landwehrle if requested.  This is only likely to be required should an IP query arise.  You may use the licenced image for one client.  Should you wish to use the same image for another client you must licence it again.

Once you have completed payment for the license to use the Image, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use and reproduce the image in printed materials, or any electronic or digital form.  In the latter case, each image should be incorporated into a design in such a manner to make it clear that the image is not intended to be separately downloaded, copied, or distributed and the image size in use must be less than 800 pixels on the longest side.

“Non-transferable” means that the work you produce using a licenced Image must be for your own use, or if purchased on behalf of your employer or client, your employer or client must be the end-user of your work. You may not sell, rent, loan, give, sub-license, or otherwise transfer to anyone the Image, or the right to use an Image, and nothing you produce shall grant or purport to grant to any third party a right to use or duplicate an image. You agree to take all commercially reasonable steps to prevent third parties from duplicating or distributing the Image.
