Finding art images on the internet has never been easier!

Our Intellectual Property/Image Licenses
IMAGE-BAR and its associated logos are our trademarks and/or service marks. Other trademarks, service marks, and logos used on or through the Website are the trademarks, service marks or logos of their respective owners. You are granted no right or license with respect to any of the aforesaid trademarks, service marks or logos.
Certain materials available on or through the Website are our Works. Our Works may be protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and/or other laws, and we reserve and retain all rights in our content and the Website. We hereby grant you a royalty-free, limited, revocable, non-sublicensable, and non-exclusive license to reproduce our Works solely for your personal usein connection with browsing the Website. This license is conditioned on your compliance with these Terms, and shall terminate upon termination of these Terms. Images displayed on the Website may contain watermarks or be controlled by other digital rights management technologies or be shown at low resolution in order to protect IMAGE-BAR’s rights. Unless expressly allowed by us, you must not remove, delete, or alter any watermark or other information, attached to a copy of an Image, related to the Image’s identification number, transactional terms, copyright owner, licensee, licensor, captions, author, date of creation or publication.
Upon your purchase of a Standard License for an Image or Images, IMAGE-BAR will grant you a limited, revocable, and non-exclusive license (the “License”) to, for lawful purposes unrelated to harmful products or services, (1) download a designated copy of the Image from the Website; and (2) further reproduce, distribute, adapt, publicly display, publicly perform and communicate to the public the Image for the purpose of making personal, educational, or business related uses that do not involve (i) reproducing, distributing, communicating to the public, adapting, making available, publicly performing, or publicly displaying the Image for a fee or (ii) incorporating the Image into a television advertisement or a printed and/or digital publication.
Uses that would fall within the Standard License include, for example, (1) creating presentations; (2) displaying an Image to a school class; (3) using an Image as your home or office desktop background; and (4) creating a storyboard or rough draft design for a client or organization presentation.
Uses that would not fall within the Standard License include, for example, (1) selling or reselling copies of an Image, whether digital or hard-copy; or (2) using an Image in any manner that violates the law.
On the other hand, your purchase of an Extended License permits you to (1) download a designated copy of the Image from the Website; and (2) to further reproduce, distribute, adapt, publicly display, publicly perform and communicate to the public the Image for the purpose of making personal, educational, or business related uses that may involve (i) reproducing, distributing, communicating to the public, adapting, making available, publicly performing, or publicly displaying the Image for a fee or (ii) incorporating the Image into a television advertisement or a printed and/or digital publication under the following conditions:
- for any publications of an Image in print or online, you must provide attribution in the format stated by IMAGE-BAR at the time you obtain a License;
- you must comply with any and all applicable so called “moral rights” requirements, including rights of attribution.
The Extended License does not permit you to use an Image in any manner that violates the law.
If you breach any provision of these Terms, any License you have obtained will be automatically rescinded and terminated.
If you would like to license an Image for uses that exceed the scope of the License, including in a television advertisement, please contact us at email@example.com.
Payments and Refunds
Permission to download an Image pursuant to the License is conditional and contingent upon payment of the specified fee through payment methods described on the Website. The License shall not commence until full payment has been received by IMAGE-BAR. Once IMAGE-BAR receives payment, we will make available to you (by email or on the Website at the time your order processes) a link through which you may download a copy of an Image. The link will be operational for 76 hours after payment is received, or until you download a copy of the Image, whichever comes first.
After 76 hours, if you have not downloaded a copy of the Image, you will be unable to do so. In that event, no refund will be paid to you. Moreover, by their nature, all digital copies are non-returnable and thus all payments for Licenses are non-refundable. However, if you obtain a link or digital copy of an Image from IMAGE-Bar that is corrupted or malfunctions due to no fault of your own and you can demonstrate such corruption or malfunction to IMAGE-BAR, we will provide you with a second link or copy of the Image free of charge but subject to the same License described herein.
All fees payable under these Terms are exclusive of VAT, duties or sales tax where appropriate, which is made payable at the standard rate applicable at the time. You are responsible for the payment of all sales and usage taxes when applicable and IMAGE-BAR shall be entitled to charge to you in addition to the payment for any License.

The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall assess the cost of the arbitration against the losing party.
