You will find the contractual license below but I know you are unlikely to read it all. Here is a quick primer:
- You are responsible for the use of the image and whether your specific use requires the permission of any person or company.
- You must not use the image in a pornographic or defamatory way.
- The Standard Royalty Free license allow you to use the image as often as you like, but they do not give you permission to resell the image.
- Extended licenses expands on the standard license to allow you to use the image in much larger projects and to offer the image for resale on printed products such as a calendar, clothing, wall print etc. and in a software, film and any digital media.
