Cyan Loves Magenta retains ownership of all original artwork, design elements, and other graphic information contained herein whether preliminary or final. Cyan Loves Magenta retains all rights except for those explicitly transferred via a usage rights agreement of original artwork (including but not limited to electronic files such as Adobe InDesign files, Adobe Illustrator files and Adobe Photoshop files).
A CLIENT may not in any way use original artwork designed by Cyan Loves Magenta Design for purposes outside the scope of the agreed project parameters without express written permission from a Director of Cyan Loves Magenta Designs. Only when a specific license agreement outlining usage rights or outright purchase of original artwork has been agreed upon, can the CLIENT claim usage rights of the original design.
Standard industry practice stipulates that a general design project does NOT result in transfer of digital design assets such as original design files (also known as: source files), therefore the ownership of this intellectual property remains with Cyan Loves Magenta Design. The CLIENT purchases the design service and the right to use the designed outcome/product for the specific purpose of the project requested. An agreement to provide usage rights of source files may be entered into between the CLIENT and Cyan Loves Magenta Designs. Until such time, source files remain the legal and exclusive property of Cyan Loves Magenta Designs.
The CLIENT shall return any source files and fonts procured by the CLIENT (intentionally or unintentionally) during the specific project timeframe to Cyan Loves Magenta Designs within 30 days unless stated otherwise. The Copyright of any concepts, unused designs, illustrations or any other rejected artwork produced by Cyan Loves Magenta Designs remains the property of Cyan Loves Magenta Designs unless written authorisation is supplied by a Director of Cyan Loves Magenta Designs.
Cyan Loves Magenta Designs reserves the right to reproduce any and all designs created in print and electronic media for Cyan Loves Magenta Designs promotional purposes.
All files will be kept for 12 months from date of completion only. All files will be resent if required from 12 months of date of completion at no charge. Other wise fee will apply for re-supply of files.
