  • Should the Designer, or the Client supply an image, text or any other file for use in a website, multimedia presentation, print item, exhibition, advertisement or any other medium believing it to be copyright and royalty free, which subsequently emerges to have such copyright or royalty usage limitations, the Client will agree to allow the Designer to remove and/or replace the file.
  • The Client agrees to fully indemnify and hold the Designer free from harm in any and all claims resulting from the Client not having obtained all the required copyright, and/or any other necessary permissions.
