All additional fees are to be agreed at the time of the booking or before any additional usage in accordance with this section.
a) Additional fees are payable for the right to use the model’s image or reproductions, or adaptations of, or drawings derived from that image, or any other representation of it, either complete or in part whether alone or in conjunction with any wording or other images, photographs, drawings or anticipated purposes which are in addition to and outside the scope of the Permitted Use, details of which are set out in the booking confirmation form, e.g. packaging, point of sale, posters etc.

Fees for such services will be negotiated on a case by case basis between the Client and the Agency. The Client shall only be permitted to shoot behind the scenes footage on the basis of an agreement in writing in advance and a payment of an additional fee agreed pursuant to this section and subject to compliance with other provisions of this Agreement.
f) All modifications, extensions and renewal of bookings shall be at the sole discretion of the Agency.

d) The Agency reserves the right in its discretion to invoice the ‘ultimate Client’. The ultimate Client is the designer/manufacturer/owner of the product in question, or the person whom ultimately will benefit economically the product for which the model has been booked. This may arise if the Client is booking on behalf of the ultimate Client, in which case the Client and the ultimate Client are jointly and severally liable to pay all of the fees and settle the invoice accordingly.

Third Party End User

- enters into an agreement with the Client on the same terms as the Agreement;
- acknowledges its obligations to the Agency including but not limited to the obligation to pay the Agency within 5 working days of the date of any invoice received from the Agency;
- and acknowledges that the third party end user may not use the images until payment is received by the Agency and that at all times the third party end user is subject to any restrictions as to use of the images including but not limited to territorial restrictions and restrictions as to media in which the images may be used.

b) An additional fee will be agreed when the use of the model’s image or the service to be supplied by a model in relation to a product is required on an exclusive or semi-exclusive (sector specific or territorial exclusivity) basis which precludes supplying services or allowing the use of the model’s image for competing and/or particular sector of products or within a particular territory.
c) A model can supply services to and allow the use of the model’s image by any competitor unless such an exclusivity fee is negotiated and paid by the Client.

c) Where the Client cancels for bookings of more than three days duration, the full booking fee will be charged and payable by the Client within a period equal to or less than the length of the booking. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays are excluded for the purpose of determining the cancellation notice period.
Cancellation of Booking by the Agency
d) Should the Agency want to cancel a booking then it shall use reasonable endeavours to provide the Client with reasonable notice, take steps to offer the Client a suitable replacement and/or substitute and take such other reasonable steps as are reasonably practicable to mitigate against such cancellation.
