Further, such company, entity or organisation shall ensure that its employees and/or persons associated with such company, entity or organisation shall at all times be bound by and act in compliance of the terms and conditions laid down herein.
2. The Licensee is hereby granted a limited right and license to use, reproduce, publish and publicly distribute the Licensed Images solely for bona fide editorial use, as further described in these Terms.

• any use in connection with any third party or in any manner promoting or being associated with any third party.
9. Any copyright notification on the Licensed Images should be seen “as is” and with due prominence. In the absence of a copyright notification on the Licensed Image or if the copyright notification is covered or partially hidden, there must be a source credit to the PWL (e.g., “Courtesy PWL”) extended next to or below the Licensed Image whenever it is used.
10. The Licensee agrees that the Licensed Images are provided to Licensee gratis and “as is” and, to the maximum extent allowable by law, the PWL shall not be liable to Licensee for any loss of profits, business, goodwill, revenue, anticipated savings or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of Licensee’s use of the Licensed Images other than in compliance with these Terms.

Should the Licensee fail to adhere to these Terms, the PWL will engage with the Licensee to bring to the Licensee’s attention, the permissible parameters of activity and work with the Licensee to resolve the matter. However, should such activities persist, the Licensee will be deemed to have knowingly breached these Terms.
13. The PWL retains and, to the extent required, is hereby granted by the relevant copyright owner of content governed by these Terms, the rights to enforce the Licensee’s compliance with these Terms (whether by means of anti-infringement actions, legal proceedings or otherwise) and with the copyright law in force. In all such cases the Licensee will not undertake any act to obstruct, nullify or obviate the rights of the PWL under this provision.
14. Nothing contained in these Terms shall limit the rights of the PWL to exercise remedies available to it under law or contract for violations of these Terms, including for damages, specific relief and through potential immediate revocation, suspension or cancellation of media accreditation where, applicable. In addition to the PWL’s right to pursue such other remedies, the Licensee hereby agrees to indemnify the PWL for any and all losses or damages as a result of the violation and breach of these Terms resulting from such unauthorised use.
15. These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of India and any dispute arising in connection herewith shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New Delhi, India.
