4. CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY
The Photographer will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make use of material or information communicated to her in confidence for the purposes of the photography, save as may be necessary to enable the Photographer to carry out her obligations in relation to the commission or if the information was already known by the Photographer.

The Client must satisfy themselves that all necessary rights, model releases or consents which may be required for reproduction, are obtained by the Client and it is acknowledged that the Photographer gives no warranty or undertaking that any such rights, model releases or consents have or will be obtained by her whether in relation to the use of names, people, trade marks, registered or copyright designs or works of art depicted in any image.
Payment by the Client must be made of all invoices issued by the Photographer for the commissioned work within 30 days of the issue of the relevant invoice.

When a client cancels photography within one week of any confirmed date, a fee of 75% will be charged. A cancellation within 48 hours will incur a fee of 100%. In addition to these cancellation fees, the Client will be charged for any expenses already incurred by the Photographer.
