AllYearbooks Limited
Photography Copyright Policy

Last updated: 9th September 2019

AllYearbooks takes measures to respect the wishes of photographers in relation to their copyright whilst limiting AllYearbooks' liability for infringement. AllYearbooks also helps customers make an informed choice when it comes to using photos in their yearbook.

AllYearbooks seeks to ensure that their customers respect the copyright of photos taken by their respective photographers (copyright holders) whilst also limiting AllYearbooks' liability relating to infringement of that copyright.

Photographers make agreements to grant AllYearbooks with a licence to use their photos and in exchange AllYearbooks take the measures detailed in this document to respect photographers' copyright. Where an agreement hasn't been made with a photographer then AllYearbooks will seek to make such an agreement and failing that may refuse to use photos by that photographer within a customers' yearbooks.

AllYearbooks requests that schools seek permission from their photographer before using photos in their yearbook.

For all Tempest Photography Customers there is a simple procedure for requesting your photos you can find this here: Tempest Photo Request Form.

When uploading photos to their online yearbooks, customers will see the following notice:

You will see this message and information about copyright in the 'Add Pics' section in the yearbook editor.

When creating your yearbook if there is something that you would like to use that you think will have copyright associated with it, please do talk to us and we can see what we can create for you.

When you are image on Google, you can add your search term and then in 'Settings' under 'advanced search' you can select images by usage rights – this way you know the image you are using have no copyright issues. Our best advice is, if you are unsure, it is best to leave it out.

If you have any questions on the use of photos or image requests, please do speak to the AllYearbooks team and we will be more than happy to advise.
