Data Protection
The Agent maintains databases which are subject to the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998, licence no. Z2072934. The Agency will make every reasonable effort to ensure the security of the Owner's details.


Images downloaded from the SHOOTFACTORY LOCATION AGENCY Library and/or any other material supplied to the Hirer by the Agent may be used for reference only, and may be printed for private, non-commercial use only. No user of the services may copy, reproduce, publish, or transmit any section of the location agency or location Library or any other supplied materials in any way, without the Agent's prior express permission. No user may edit or alter or crop any of the images supplied, or downloaded from the Library. All images and information supplied are copyright SHOOTFACTORY LOCATION AGENCY, unless otherwise indicated. All users must agree to use any supplied material only for lawful purposes.


There is no charge for using the Agent's web site(s), nor for organising a Recce, however the confirmation of, and usage of any Property will be subject to a booking fee. The location hire fee is separate, and subject to negotiation. All charges must be paid in advance of the Shoot. Additional charges may include a damage deposit which will be held until after the Shoot. Preparation and restoration days are normally charged at 50% of the agreed Shoot fees. Overtime payments (if applicable) will be invoiced after the Shoot, must be paid within 7 days, and will be subject to an Agent's administration charge of £50. Outstanding sums due to the Agency and/or Owner will carry interest in accordance with UK Late Payment of Debts legislation.


After confirmation, SHOOTFACTORY LOCATION AGENCY will have begun processing paperwork and invoicing: as such, the full library fee becomes due after confirmation and is not refundable. Cancellation to the location owner may be subject to different terms and conditions, imposed by the owner; by default it is SHOOTFACTORY LOCATION AGENCY policy that the entire location fee will remain payable if less than five (5) days remain between cancellation and shoot commencement date. Verbal confirmation is deemed to be full confirmation.


No charge is made to our clients prior to confirmation of the job. After confirmation, our library fees become due and are non-refundable. Provided that a cancellation has been made more than five (5) days before the first shoot date, any location fees and/or deposits held by us will be refunded in full as soon as is practicable (and in any event within 14 days). After the cut-off point (5 days prior to commencement of shoot), the entire location fee will remain payable. Client satisfaction is paramount to us, and complaints will be assessed on an individual basis, and every effort made to find an amicable solution. Refund of the location fees after the cut-off point (and therefore after payment has been made to the location) will be subject to three-way negotiation and agreement between the Hirer, the Agent and the Owner.


Although every effort has been taken to ensure the images and particulars presented are up-to-date, no warranty is given or implied that any Property is available or suitable for the Hiring. The display or provision of images and/or particulars do not constitute any part of an offer or contract and are for guidance purposes only. None of the descriptions in the location Library nor those provided by any employee or representative of the location Agency may be relied upon as statements of fact.


The location Agent cannot insist, but highly recommends that a Recce take place so that the Hirer can establish for themselves the availability and/or suitability of the Property. It is the responsibility of the Hirer to ascertain the status of the Property and its suitability, and to ensure that all necessary permissions are in place prior to the commencement of the Shoot. Neither the location Agent nor the location Owner can accept responsibility for loss, damage or inconvenience that may occur when a Recce did not take place. At the time of any such Recce, the Hirer assumes full legal responsibility for equipment and/or personnel that enter the Property.


Public Liability
All Location Hire is subject to contract, and the Owner reserves the absolute right to refuse the booking without giving a reason. The Hirer must exhibit on demand proof of Public Liability Insurance prior to entering the Premises for the purposes of the Shoot.


Where details are given for a particular location house, whether used or not, any subsequent use of that location by the Hirer, the location agency manager, production company or its principals will be charged at normal location library rates and will be subject to these same Terms and Conditions. The cancellation of the booking followed at any time by the subsequent use of the Property will be subject to the usual booking fees. The booking fees apply to one usage of the Property: subsequent usage will be subject to additional booking fees. All location contact details and information released by the Agent to the Hirer are confidential and shall be used for the purposes of the production only and may not be released to any third party under any circumstances unless necessary for the purposes of the production. "Recce photographs" taken by a Hirer, or their representative, who visits a supplied location are for reference use only, and for the sole use of the production for which they are taken. Such recce photographs and/or any other reference material, including contact details, must not subsequently be used for financial or personal gain.


The location Agency cannot insist, but highly recommends that a qualified Location Manager be employed by the Hirer to oversee the Shoot, to organise access, parking, permissions and responsible care of the Property. Responsibility for the notification of relevant authorities, and the notification of neighbours, entirely rests with the Hirer. The location Agent will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered as a result of the Hire. The total extent of any liability shall in any event not exceed the total of the Charges and/or Commission if applicable.
