Prints - General.
The products contained within the website may differ slightly in colour from the way they are represented from one computer monitor to another. What you may see on screen represents the colour you should expect to receive but can only be used as a guide not an exact representation. The purchased fine art prints must not be scanned or duplicated. The client is aware that colour dyes in photography may fade or discolour over time due to the inherent qualities of dyes, and the client releases VIETEN EQUINE IMAGES from any liability for any claims whatsoever based upon fading or discolouration due to such inherent qualities. VIETEN EQUINE IMAGES will make every effort to provide the most accurate colour reproduction on products purchased through VIETEN EQUINE IMAGES. The company has no liability whatsoever toward the quality of any prints or products reproduced by the client from digital files purchased from or provided by the company. It is recommended when displaying or storing prints, to use archival materials whenever possible.

If in the unlikely event the product arrives damaged the purchaser must notify the company within 2 days of receipt of the product so the company can adhere to its insurance policy with its preferred delivery partners.
Photo Shoot - General.
The client assumes all responsibility for their horse(s) or any other subjects during the session, including injury or damage caused to horse, rider, property or any individual before, during or after the photo shoot. Know your horse(s) and their behavior and limitations before bringing them to any public area. It is your responsibility to tell the photographer if you feel that the location or situation put your horse in danger. If your horse tends to kick, bite or may shows other misbehaviour you also are required to mention it to the photographer to keep everybody safe. If you choose, at your own discretion, to ride your horse without a riding hat, you do so entirely at your own risk. The photographer has the right to stop the session if they are concerned about the horse’s welfare, safety or behaviour during the session (no refunds provided).
Photo Shoot - Photographs.
If you upload your images on the web (Social Media) you will be required to only use the small resolution digital images (JPEG) with the photographer's logo. You are not permitted to remove the logo or edit the images (changing colours, or removing part of the image). The high resolution digital images (JPEG) without logo are for print use only. You cannot enter any of your images in competition (online or otherwise). The client is responsible to keep digitals safe and to make duplicates. Any request for additional digital image duplicates from the photographer will incur additional charges. Digital files are provided as JPEG only, edited in the photographer's style. The fine art prints you receive as part of the photo shoot package must not be scanned or duplicated.

Within 1-2 weeks (depending on order situation) after the shooting you will receive an online gallery (via email) with your pre-edited & watermarked photos. After receiving the email you have a 2 week time frame for transmitting your decision regarding your desired photographs. In case you select more images than including your chosen photo shoot package (e.g. if an additional horse attended the session or you simply wish for additional images) you will receive an invoice for the outstanding amount (to be paid within a 1 week time frame). No part of any order will be delivered until the required balance is paid in full. All such payments are final and are not refundable. It will take 2-8 weeks until your very personal art is with you. Your fine art prints will be dispatched in a solid cardboard package and your digital files delivered via download link by mail.
