About paperwork - invoices, agreements, tax documentation XXX

  1. Agreements:
    • Subscriptions: Because subscriptions are paid by monthly or quarterly instalments, there is a standard one-page signed agreement defining the term of the agreement, whether payment is monthly or quarterly, the rate, and the publications permitted to use the graphics.
    • Contract Invoices: For deals paid by a single invoice the only paperwork is the invoice itself, so all the relevant information is included on the invoice. The terms are therefore accepted if the invoice is paid, and the license is subject to payment.
    • Self invoicing
  2. User Terms: All agreements are subject to the same User Terms as these are agreed at the point of download. This is the same for all online services.
  3. Prices: Graphic News has a fair rate policy and adjusts rates so they are fair and reasonable to all our publishers, however large or small, and in whichever country they are based. We can offer rates for single print publications or websites, or give a multimedia license for all formats produced by a Publisher - print, web, tablet, and mobile applications. This is the most suitable agreement where there is a central content management system and a publisher wants to use content across different platforms.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
