This document governs the terms of use of Klatz (“Site”). This Site is owned and operated by Depositphotos Inc., a Delaware corporation (3500 South DuPont Highway, Dover, Kent county, DE 19901, file number 5777563) and its affiliates, including Depositphotos EU Limited (1 Anastasi Sioukri, Themis Court, 4th floor, office 402, 3105 Limassol, Cyprus, company number ΗΕ 276233) (collectively, “Klatz”). Access to the Site and its functions is conditioned by the user’s acceptance of these terms.

Klatz reserves the right at any time to make changes and edits to these terms, which are effective once published. If a user keeps on working with the Site after such changes have been made, the user acknowledges his/her consent with the changes. In the event of any contradiction between these terms and any agreement or policy on the Site, these terms will prevail.

1. Access and behavior

Users shall identify themselves each time they use the functions available on the Site, or access their user profiles. The login and password (“Credentials”) chosen for such identification are confidential information, and users shall not disclose this information and shall not reveal, or offer for the use of a third party, their personal Credentials without clear written permission from Klatz.

Users bear sole responsibility for each access to the Site using their Credentials. Klatz automatically accepts and recognizes the Credentials as evidence identifying the user who gained access to the Site. A user’s login and password shall be unique symbols; however, other than their uniqueness, Klatz does not impose specific requirements as to their contents and quality.

Users shall not use the Site for unlawful or otherwise disapproved purposes: Users of the Site agree to refrain from inappropriate activities including, but not limited to:

  • abusing, threatening, hunting down, or violating the data protection rights of third parties or other users of the Site;

  • placing, uploading, publishing, showing, or distributing files of a scandalous or derogatory nature, including ribald, indecent, obscene or unlawful pictures and other files;

  • passing, resending, uploading or in any other way distributing, cooperating or taking part in the distribution of files or parts of program code that include, contain or consist of parts of software or other files under the protection of intellectual property or copyright laws and any affiliated protections (including the right of confidentiality), excluding cases where the user owns or controls such rights or has the necessary permissions;

  • passing, resending, uploading or in any other way distributing, cooperating or taking part in the distribution of files or parts of program code containing harmful software (such as viruses) that may result in the disruption or total failure of the correct operation of software or hardware in other computers;

  • deleting, clearing, removing or in any other way concealing any author attributions, labels, identifications, or legal notices in any files uploaded or downloaded by the user;

  • advertising or selling goods or services of any kind, and also placing on the Site any information unrelated to the Site functions and resources (such as surveys, advertisements, or spam);

  • downloading or saving any files or programs on the Site that the user knows to be unlawful, or that cannot or should not be legally distributed;

  • using any Site functions including, but not limited to, mailing to other members of the Site for advertising purposes, to distribute referral links, to promote files or goods, services or activities, whether or not connected to the Site;

As stated below, Klatz has the right and authority to remove any files at any time without notification to authors, license-holders or owners of the files.

2. Intellectual property

All assets making up the Site are the property of Klatz and are protected by local and international intellectual property laws.

Klatz regularly updates the Site. Nevertheless, Klatz makes no representation about completeness, accuracy and compliance of the published information. There may be links on the Site to third-party sites, which are given solely for the users’ convenience. Their presence does not mean they are recommended or endorsed by Klatz; Klatz does not warrant the safety of these third-party sites nor that they would conform with users’ expectations. Klatz shall not bear any liability in the event of any damages or losses, direct or implicit, due to following a link to a third-party site originating from Klatz, or to the use of services provided by third-party sites.

3. Site management

Klatz does not control all uploads and information exchanges performed throughout the Site and is not responsible for such uploads and exchanges. Nevertheless, Klatz reserves the right to correct mistakes and move, delete, refuse to publish, or edit any text message or files which Klatz may regard as violating or possibly violating these terms or the privacy, intellectual property, or similar rights of third parties.

Klatz respects intellectual property of third parties and asks its users to behave the same way. If any user has grounds to believe that his/her work has been copied in violation of copyright, or his/her other intellectual property rights have been violated directly or indirectly, the user should provide Klatz with a notice of such infringement including the following information:

  • the physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property in question;

  • a description of the work or other kind of intellectual property belonging to the owner that the user claims has been breached;

  • description of the place on the Site where this material appeared;

  • the e-mail address, phone number and physical address of the user;

  • the user’s application, including a reasonable assertion that the disputed usage is not allowed by the law or the copyright owner;
