PurePhoto will include in its Base Price and will charge customers for production, shipping and handling fees and sales taxes where relevant. When making each Submission available for sale you are agreeing to receive a Payout of fifty percent (50%) of net sales ("Net Sales").

If you have earned less than 50 United States of America Dollars (hereafter 'US$') during the month, or equivalent in Euros, British Pounds or Australian Dollars, PurePhoto reserves the right to roll that amount over to the following month and continue to roll it over until you have earned at least US$50. Despite the above clauses, you may request payment at any time for the full amount in your account and a US$25 administration fee will apply. PurePhoto will pay this amount to you within 7 days of your request. PurePhoto will not be liable for any loss suffered by you if you provide us with incorrect details in relation to the payment method. It is your responsibility to ensure PurePhoto has current details of your PayPal account details. If we are unable to pay you because you have given us incorrect details or your details are out of date, we will hold your margin for up to 12 months from the Payment date. If you have not notified PurePhoto of any amendment to the Payment method details in that time, you authorize us to donate all or part of your Payout to a charity of our choice.

- Limitation of Liability. In no case will PurePhoto be liable for any consequential loss or damage suffered by you arising from this Appointment. To the extent permitted by law, all warranties and conditions implied by law are hereby expressly excluded.

PurePhoto is committed to protecting copyrights and expects users of the Service to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through the Service infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Service; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding the Service should be sent to:
