This is where a licence is granted for a specified purpose, territory and duration as specified on our invoice to you. For example this may be in respect of the following:

The User may only use the image to create or to assist in the creation of a new image different from the original image ("Montage"). For example, the User takes part of the image and uses this in another work.
