Raw footage is the copyright of JC Pictures Ltd and isn’t supplied to client’s unless a licensing agreement has been reached. If the client does not make any payment to JC Pictures Ltd by the due date or if JC Pictures Ltd terminates the Contract for the client’s material breach or insolvency this licence will automatically terminate.

The client agrees to make available as soon as is reasonably possible to JC Pictures Ltd all materials required to complete the work to the agreed standard and within the set deadline.
JC Pictures Ltd will not be liable for costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to:
- The failure to meet agreed deadlines.
- The work carried out on behalf of the client or any of the clients appointed agents.
- The inclusion of material and information submitted by the client.
JC Pictures Ltd will not be liable or become involved in any disputes between the client and their clients and cannot be held responsible for any wrongdoing eg. Any disputes re content/images that have been provided to us for inclusion in the video.
Once digital files have been uploaded and completed the final balance of payment is then due. There are no exceptions to this, i.e If the client decides they no longer want the work, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Non payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary. Once full payment is received for digital work, it is assumed that the project has been completed to the clients satisfaction and no refunds can be offered.
Payment of Accounts
A deposit of 50% is required with any standard project before any concept/production work will be carried out. This figure is non-refundable. Work on the project will not commence until this amount has cleared. It is JC Pictures Ltd policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by JC Pictures Ltd or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 14 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with JC Pictures Ltd.
Once a deposit is paid and work completed the client is obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due. Accounts which remain outstanding for 14 days after the date of invoice, will incur an extra charge of 0.2% per day of the outstanding amount plus a £10 administration fee.
If accounts are not settled or JC Pictures Ltd have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the hosted video, video files may be denied, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, non payment can result in county court judgements (ccj’s) being added to the clients credit rating.
Following consistent non payment of an invoice a Solicitor will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
The client agrees to allow JC Pictures Ltd to place a small credit on video content, displays, advertisements and/or a link to JC Pictures Ltd own website on the client’s video. This will usually be in the form of a small logo or shot video ident featured at the end of the client’s video.
We do not share or sell any of your details with third party companies, without your express permission and we will only email you or contact you about work related matters.
Cancellation of orders may be made initially by telephone contact, or e-mail, however, following this, JC Pictures Ltd will need formal notification in writing to its postal address. The client will then be invoiced for all work completed over and above the non-refundable deposit that will have been made at the time of first ordering. The balance of monies due must be paid within 14 days. Please note: any cancellation which is not formally confirmed in writing and received by JC Pictures Ltd within 14 days of such instruction being issued, will be liable for the full quoted cost of the project.
Anyone who experiences a problem with their video provided by JC Pictures Ltd should raise the matter directly giving sufficient information to locate the material (such as an url) and clearly outlining the grounds for complaint. JC Pictures Ltd will approach the individual responsible for the material in question with a view to resolving the matter to the satisfaction of the complainant
The formal complaints procedure should only be used where the complainant feels that the nature of the complaint is too serious to be dealt with informally, or where a satisfactory conclusion has not been reached after following the informal procedure
A formal complaint should be made in writing JC Pictures Ltd, who will acknowledge receipt and ensure that the matter is looked into as soon as possible.
An initial response to any complaint can be expected within seven days of its receipt; a full and considered response to the complaint should be completed within 14 days and any subsequent remedy implemented with the minimum of delay.
