When you place an order, this constitutes a formal offer to buy under these terms and conditions.
There is a lot of legal speak below, but the simple fact is if you are a rider and buy an image for your personal use, you can use it on your social media, print out a copy for your grandmother, get it put on a mug for your coffee, and all those sorts of things. You cannot give it to your sponsor for their website (that's commercial use), you cannot give it to a newspaper or a magazine without my permission, and you cannot use it on a website where you are selling your horse without my permission.
If you want to use an image for any commercial purposes, then please contact me to discuss.
