SINGLE USER ENHANCED LICENSE
Dear Shutterstock Enhanced License Subscriber:
The following is a legal agreement between you or the employer or other entity on whose behalf you are entering into this agreement ("you") and Shutterstock, Inc. ("Shutterstock"). Please read this agreement carefully before downloading any Shutterstock Images ("Image" or "Images"). By downloading any Image, you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement, the Shutterstock Privacy Statement
, which documents are incorporated herein and made a part hereof by this reference. Shutterstock reserves the right to change any of the terms of this agreement at any time, and you agree to be bound by such changes. If and when changes are made to these Terms of Service an announcement will appear on your login page. Please make sure that you read and understand all such changes. If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, as same may be amended from time to time, do not download or use any Images. Your failure to comply with the terms hereof could result in the immediate termination of your account
To use an Image(s) as permitted by this Enhanced License, you must download that Image(s) as part of your Enhanced License subscription. Images downloaded as part of a Standard License subscription may only be used in compliance with the Standard License TOS even if you also have an Enhanced License.
Please note: If your subscription was active prior to the changes in these TOS, your use of Images will be controlled by the TOS in effect at the time your Shutterstock subscription commenced. If you selected the "Auto Rebilling Option", your billing cycle will determine which TOS control your rights. Your use of Images downloaded during a billing cycle that commences after the effective date hereof will be controlled by these TOS. Conversely, the use of any Images downloaded during a billing cycle that commenced prior to this change in the TOS will be governed by the TOS in effect during the subject billing cycle.

All Images on the Shutterstock website are protected by United States and international copyright laws and treaties. Shutterstock and/or the various artists who provide content and/or Images to Shutterstock ("Submitters") own all rights, including the copyrights in and to the Images. Shutterstock and/or its Submitters reserve all rights in and to the Images not expressly granted to you by the terms of this license. Your rights to use any Image are subject to this license agreement and are conditioned upon your payment to Shutterstock for your use of the Images. If you fail to make any payment to Shutterstock when due, or if any check is dishonored or credit card charge refused or charged back, your account will be deemed delinquent. Provided that your account was current at the time you downloaded an Image and you were not otherwise in breach of any of the terms hereof (or of the terms of any other agreement between you and Shutterstock), you have the right to use the downloaded Image, subject however, to the terms of this agreement. If your account becomes delinquent, your right to use any Images downloaded at any time shall automatically terminate unless all payments together with any interest thereon and Shutterstock's costs of collection, bank charges and credit card processing fees are received by Shutterstock no later than fifteen (15) days from the date that your account became delinquent.

Resell, redistribute or transfer any Image except as specifically provided herein. Displaying any Image in any digital format or for any digital use at a resolution greater than 800 x 600 pixels, except in editorial or preliminary design work, will be deemed to be an attempt to redistribute the Image and could result in the termination of your rights under this agreement.

Do not assume that you have or will receive a waiver for a proposed future use because you received a waiver in the past for a similar use.
Use an Image marked "Editorial Use Only" for commercial purposes. If an Image is marked, "Editorial Use Only", additional permissions may be required for commercial use. Shutterstock does not provide such permissions.

If your subscription was paid by check, your refund will be made by check.
"Non-transferable" as used herein means that except as specifically provided in these TOS, you may not sell, rent, load, give, sublicense, or otherwise transfer to anyone, the Image or the right to use the Image. You may however, transfer Images to a third party for the sole purpose of causing such third party to produce and/or manufacture your goods incorporating Images subject to the terms and conditions herein. In addition, the work you produce with the Image must be used for yourself, your direct employer, client, or customer, who must be the end user of your work. You agree to take all commercially responsible steps to prevent third parties from duplicating any Image. If you become aware of any unauthorized duplication of any Shutterstock Image(s) please notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
