sole discretion, for advertising purposes. The only transfer of intellectual property rights allowed on the Site occurs through the Image Transfer Agreement document, where the intellectual property rights of those Images marked as completed by the User on the relevant collaboration page are transferred from the H.T, who created said Images, to the User, who commissioned said Images, as evidenced in the relevant User/H.T Agreement; whilst still allowing for the use of said Images by the H.T, within his portfolio, and for advertising purposes.

4. COOKIES AND RELATED TECHNOLOGY
A web beacon is a small graphic image that allows the party that set the web beacon to monitor and collect certain information about the viewer of the web page, web-based document or e-mail message, such as the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to and the time the web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be very small and invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail, including HTML based content, can act as a web beacon. The H.T may use web beacons to count visitors to the web pages on the Site or to monitor how our users navigate the Site, and the H.T may include web beacons in e-mail messages in order to count how many messages sent were actually opened, acted upon or forwarded.

When a project begins, all our clients become beneficiaries of one of the 2 types of rights to their project project results.
6.1 Standard Image Rights
This is the type of rights all H.T clients benefit by default. This means that we reserve the right to use the project imagery for our marketing and advertising purposes. The materials we can use them for include, but are not limited to, social media posts and advertisements, printed and online catalogs, price-lists, booklets, blog articles, our portfolio, posts on any other platforms.
It’s important to note, however, that this applies to project results only. We do not disclose any files or documents sent by the client, i.e. construction plans.
6.2 Exclusive Image Rights
Should you wish the project results to be your sole property, you can upgrade to Exclusive Image Rights. In that case, we waive all rights to use the visual content you’ve got throughout the project.
