Terms & Conditions
The following terms and conditions, along with our other policies and related service conditions (collectively, the “Terms and Conditions”), govern the relationship between LIGHT 18, LLC (the “Company”) and you (the “Client”).

The Client shall arrange for all items brought or shipped to our studio to be removed no later than 1 business day after completion of the job.  Items left after 7 days will be assumed abandoned and may be discarded or kept by the Company with no compensation due to the Client.

The Client will own all copyrights to the final images, but the Company shall be permitted to keep copies for its internal uses, such as quality control, data mining and record keeping.  In some cases, the Company may seek the Client’s permission to display its images in the Company’s marketing/promotional materials, or for other external uses.
Our web site contains material which is owned by or licensed to us. This material includes, but is not limited to, text, images and graphics, as well as the web site’s design, layout and appearance. Any reproduction is prohibited without our consent.

The Client shall be solely responsible for any damage to the Company’s property or equipment that occurs during the time the Client occupies the studio.  The Company reserves the right to require a damage deposit.  The Client agrees to pay reasonable repair costs to bring damaged equipment back to working condition, and further agrees that any credit card on file may be charged by the Company for this purpose.
Use of the Company’s studio and equipment is at the Client’s own risk. The Client agrees that the Company, its affiliates and agents will not be held liable (and will be indemnified by the Client) for injury, loss or liability related to the Client’s use of the Studio or equipment, unless caused by the Company’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
The Client agrees to leave the equipment, the studio and all contents therein in the same condition as when the Client arrived, otherwise the Company may charge the Client a cleaning fee.
The Client shall be solely responsible for the conduct and welfare of its personnel while in the Studio. The Client agrees that a Company representative shall have the right to be present in the studio at all times.
The Client may be required, prior to studio rental, to present a certificate of general liability insurance naming LIGHT 18, LLC as additional insured. If so required, the Client’s liability insurance shall be deemed primary and non-contributory.

To the full extent permissible by law, the Company disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.  Under no circumstances shall the Company be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages (including lost profits).  To the extent the Company is deemed liable for any direct damages, they shall be capped at the total amount of the fees received from the Client during the prior 12 months.

The Company is not liable for acts out of its control that may affect a shoot or the delivery of a Client’s product, including, without limitation, power outages, weather or other acts of God.

The laws of the state of New York govern these Terms and Conditions.  If the Company and the Client are unable to resolve any controversy or claim related hereto, they agree to submit the dispute or claim to binding arbitration subject to the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in New York County, New York.  The parties further agree that any such controversy or claim shall be submitted to one arbitrator selected by the AAA and that a judgment of a court having jurisdiction may be entered on the award.
