After the first effective agreement, they also apply to all future business relations. In the absence of express confirmation, acceptance is effected by placing an order, accepting deliveries or downloading data from our press service server. Counter-confirmations by the customer with reference to his own general terms and conditions shall only become binding if they are expressly acknowledged in writing by Schmallenberger Sauerland Tourismus GmbH. Photographs within the meaning of these GTC are all works made available to the user of the photo archive, regardless of their level of creation or technical form.

Copyright, rights of use etc:
The photographs made available always remain the property of the Schmallenberger Sauerland Tourismus GmbH. The picture material is basically only released for one-time use and for the agreed purpose. The granting of exclusive rights and blocking periods requires a separate agreement and release declaration. The user of the photo archive is not entitled to transfer the rights of use to third parties. Processing, alteration or reproduction of the image data requires approval.

Personal rights:
Schmallenberger Sauerland Tourismus GmbH is not liable if a person depicted in photographs does not agree to publication in certain contexts. In order to avoid claims for damages, it is recommended to obtain the consent of depicted persons before publication in cases of doubt.

The use of the picture material for commercial purposes without journalistic or touristic reference (e.g. product advertising etc.) is subject to a fee. The fee must be negotiated with Schmallenberger Sauerland Tourismus GmbH. Subject to an explicit deviating regulation, fee agreements shall only apply for a one-time publication and the stated purpose. Any further use (e.g. also brochures accompanying the product or advertising, reprinting etc.) is again subject to a fee and also requires renewed approval. All calculated fees and other charges are exclusive of the statutory value added tax applicable at the time of conclusion of the contract. Invoices are always due and payable immediately upon receipt and without any deductions. Bank and shipping charges and other costs associated with payment shall be borne by the user.

Two complete specimen copies of each publication are to be sent to the Schmallenberger Sauerland Tourismus GmbH unsolicited and free of charge.

Choice of law, place of jurisdiction: The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply additionally to
all contractual relationships, including those involving delivery or the granting of rights of use abroad. The possible invalidity of one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
