The following applies to all image licences on this site. Please ensure you have also read the terms and conditions of the relevant (personal or commercial) licence below.

  • Images are supplied by email as a download link. The purchaser can download the file a total of three times and the link expires after 180 days. Please ensure you provide a correct and functioning email address. If the email fails, the link will be displayed on the ‘order fulfilled’ page where you can download it directly on that one occasion.
  • If you have any trouble with the file download (for example, if your email bounces and you lose the order confirmation page both at once!) we will deliver the file by another method, but there could be an unspecified delay.
  • Images are supplied ‘as is’ and no responsibility is taken for their suitability for the purposes of the buyer after purchase. We offer no refund if you change your mind.
  • Images are supplied at the stated resolution, and you will need to adjust the file size for your own requirements (such as shrinking file size for use on web or social media, or increasing dpi resolution for printing). Please ensure the supplied resolution is adequate for your needs – a medium resolution file probably won’t work as well as a screensaver on a TV as it will for social media or websites. Earth Sea Star takes no responsibility for results after you receive the file.
  • Make sure to keep a copy of your confirmation email after purchase: this is proof you hold the image license.
