5 Modalities of service provision – photo production

(1) In the case of more extensive recordings or productions, the procedure shall first be roughly determined between the two parties. If the customer has certain wishes, these are to be expressed to Nirina Juliana Photography.

(2) In particular, the client must ensure that on the day of the agreed photo shoot, the selected location can also be used and photographed or filmed. The customer has to take care of an appropriate consent of the owner, unless it was agreed otherwise in writing between the parties.

(3) In the event that Nirina Juliana Photography prepares a cost estimate, it should be noted that this is a non-binding cost estimate based on the client’s information and wishes. Only after the end of the photo shooting can the actual costs be determined and calculated.

(4) In the event that it is necessary to involve third parties (e.g. stylists, make-up artists, assistants), Nirina Juliana Photography is entitled to commission these third parties on behalf of and for the account of the client. In this case, no contract between Nirina Juliana Photography and the third party is concluded.

(5) The photographs shown to the client after the photo production will be selected by Nirina Juliana Photography. An individual agreement deviating from this principle is possible.

6 Provision of photographs for inspection – period for complaints

(1) All photographic material is copyrighted photographic work pursuant to Section 2 (1) (5) UrhG.

(2) The photographic material is the property of Nirina Juliana Photography. The customer is prohibited from using the visual material and from passing it on to third parties.

(3) The client selects those images from the transferred or digitally made available images which he wishes to purchase. The customer shall select the images within 14 days of receipt.

This period also applies to a complaint.

After expiry of this period, the photographic material shall be deemed to have been received in accordance with the contract and in due form. The agreed purchase price then becomes due for all pictures.

(4) A complaint concerning the technical implementation or the artistic design is excluded.

(5) Analogue picture material is to be returned immediately after use, at the latest after 1 month. Alternatively, the images can be purchased by the customer from Nirina Juliana Photography.

The return must be insured. The customer bears the risk of loss or damage of the images until receipt by Nirina Juliana Photography.

(6) Digital image data, which are only made available for viewing by Nirina Juliana Photography and which the client does not wish to acquire, must be deleted after the 14-day period (6.3) or the data carrier must be destroyed. Alternatively, the usage period can be extended against payment of a corresponding license fee.

b) We refer to this directly BEFORE completing the order.

This can be done in the offer e-mail or directly with your product.

I would like to point out that you waive your 14-day right of revocation – as you

1. directly access all course content; or

2. directly download the e-book, workbook etc. or

3. I should start directly with the provision of services (photo session, etc.).

Further claims are excluded, except in cases of intentional or grossly negligent behaviour by employees or other vicarious agents of Nirina Juliana Photography.

12 Photographs taken at events

(1) In the case of photos taken at events, Nirina Juliana Photography points out that the customer (wedding couple, organiser, etc.) must ensure that the participating guests are informed that photos will be taken or films made at the event. If guests do not wish this, they must inform the organiser.

As a customer of Nirina Juliana Photography, we ask you to read the following instructions carefully and to observe them:

14 Editing of the pictures

The customer can get an impression of the usual style from the pictures shown on the website / Facebook page.

There it is stated for which purposes the rights of use are transferred.

(7) Nirina Juliana Photography grants the client the rights of use to the intellectual property rights of the services provided by Nirina Juliana Photography exclusively for the specifically agreed use.

Rights shall only be transferred if this has been expressly agreed in writing. The customer acquires the contractually agreed rights only upon full payment of all claims arising from the order.
