E) USE OF THE WEBSITE
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
The elements published on the AnimalsReel website, including, in particular, the logo, trademarks, texts, photographs, images, drawings, models or tables constitute works protected by intellectual property or personal rights. Full or partial reproduction or representation of this website is therefore prohibited without the prior express consent of the owners of such rights and may constitute an act of counterfeiting punished by the provisions of the Intellectual Property Code and/or a criminal act involving the civil liability of those violating the aforementioned rights.
The User is fully liable for browsing the website www.animalsreel.com . AnimalsReel cannot be held liable for any failure, errors or computer viruses that could hinder the continuity of access to its website or malfunctions that could be encountered in the User's PC following access to the website. Consequently, the same shall not be required to repair any direct or indirect damage that may be related to the use of or access to the website or downloading of elements contained on the website (images, texts, video files).
F) TECHNICAL QUALITY AND APPEARANCE OF VISUAL CONTENT TAKEN IN GREEN SCREEN
Files containing videos and photos are sold on an "as is" basis and distributed in formats and under the User License conditions chosen for the purchase; nevertheless, the following general warnings on the technical quality and appearance of visual content and footage in green screen (chroma key technique) apply:
- the original files in R3D (Red Raw code) format, readable and editable only with specialised software (Redcine Pro, DaVinci Resolve, FCP X, etc.) may include an additional file in RMD format, necessary for presenting the Visual Content with "normal" look. The original R3D files, in fact, sometimes have dominants (e.g. magenta) due to the specific camera settings and/or particular lighting conditions used in the footage in question. These conditions can be modified at will and without loss of quality, with the aforementioned software products, according to taste and to the style of the footage in which the Customer intends to insert the visual content provided by AnimalsReel;
- very rarely, in certain slow motion footage, minor flickering is present caused by fluorescent light sources on the shooting set;
- all images (videos and photos) of the various collections, visible on the AnimalsReel.com website, are presented with the application of a mask with the same color as the background, which covers persons (animal trainers or crew) or objects on the set near the animal; since these are post-production interventions, useful only for a more orderly and pleasant presentation of the collections in the website showcase, the Customer will find the Visual Content without this mask, so people or objects will appear next to the animal. The Customer, therefore, in post-production, must execute a "key" to remove the green background and the people or objects around the animal. Purchase of the User License does not authorise insertion in your final footage of the people and objects that appear in the Visual Content in addition to the animal;
G) ATTRIBUTION OF CREDIT AND COPYRIGHT
Any use of Visual Content must be accompanied by the attribution of credit to AnimalsReel, substantially in the form below: "Images and videos used under license from AnimalsReel.com”
In any case, attribution of credit must have the dimensions, colours and significance such as to be clearly visible to the naked eye and preferably with the inclusion of the logo can be downloaded from the link indicated.
PART II WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS
AnimalsReel.com warrants that the Visual Content in its original form, downloaded and used entirely in accordance with these Terms of Service and with applicable legislation:
a) does not violate any copyright, trademark or intellectual property right;
b) does not violate the privacy or advertising rights of third parties;
c) does not violate laws, statutes, ordinances or provisions of Italian legislation;
d) is not defamatory, offensive, pornographic or obscene.
This without prejudice to the warning in point E above.
