Website & Graphic Design Copyright Information
As with anything, there are rules, rights and responsibilities that you need to be aware of when it comes to a customized website design or graphics that are created or modified by us.
The website fee that is initially paid covers only the set-up time of a company's information and images into a customized website design. Even though we take the time to create and customize a website design (including creating or modifying certain graphics or logos), specifically for a business or individual, Hunter Creative Group retains all legal copyrights to the actual website design and graphics used - including any buttons, images, and/or logos, that we create or modify for use in the design of a website, unless specifically purchased at time of website creation.
As a client of our web hosting and web management services, you have the right to use the customized website design, graphics, buttons, and/or logos, at no additional cost, to represent your company, for as long as you continue web hosting services with Hunter Creative Group. However, we do not allow modifications, of any kind, to our work.
Respectively, Hunter Creative Group's copyright must show on the bottom of every website page that we design, in it's entirety and at all times, with a link back to our website. This can only be removed once a website design is actually purchased.
In the event you discontinue using Hunter Creative Group's web hosting and/or website management services, you may use the logo and any other images that you originally sent to us during the creation process. However, you will no longer be able to use the website design or any of the modified graphics, logos, or other images, in any way, shape, or form, until the full copyrights are purchased from Hunter Creative Group.
The website (including any part of the design, graphics, and/or logo) that we create and/or customize may not be transferred (in whole or in part) to any other web server or web hosting company until the website design, graphics, and/or logo has specifically been purchased. The website design, graphics, logos, etc., may not be copied or transferred, in any way, without prior written approval from Hunter Creative Group.
You may purchase the website design, logo, and/or other graphics by contacting us. Once a website design, logo, or other graphic is purchased, the owner will receive written copyright permission to continue using the purchased item(s) and will be notified if additional copyrights are needing to be purchased or transferred (such as for purchased images and graphics, etc).
