IDS Image Licence

Licence to use IDS Images - Conditions of their use by IDS customers

IDS has developed a portfolio of IDS Images to support the marketing of its products. This portfolio is refreshed and updated annually and represents a substantial time and financial investment to IDS. The IDS Images also reflect the brand, quality and image which IDS seeks to maintain and portray to its customers and to users of the dance-related products. IDS therefore enforce a strict policy of usage to ensure that IDS Images are used properly and consistently in the market place in the presentation of IDS dance-related products and to ensure that the models are protected.

This Licence agreement sets out the legal basis upon which IDS permits its intellectual property in the form of the IDS Images to be used by you as an IDS third party licensee. IDS retain the ownership of all IDS Images and Intellectual Property Rights under this agreement.
