BOOKING CONDITIONS UNIKO MODEL MANAGEMENT BARCELONA
Time charging: Time is charged per hour. Booked time is charged at full fee even if the model does not have to remain for the full amount of time. For full-day bookings meal-time breaks must be made. VAT is payable on all fees.
Agency commission: In addition to the fees a 20% agency commission is charged.
Half-day bookings: Working hours are up to a maximum of 4 hours.
Full-day bookings: Are valid for 8 hours for models and charged as soon as the 6th hour begins. Working hours are up to a maximum of 8 hours, then overtime will be charged per hour.
Cancellation: Must be no later than 17:00, two full business days prior to starting work. Cancellation one day before is charged at 50% of the fee. Cancellation on the day of the job will be charged at the full fee. Cancellation of travel shall be made no later than 7 days prior to departure; otherwise it will be charged at half fee for the booked time. The customer pays the cancellation cost of tickets, etc.
Weather booking: If the weather is a prerequisite for the job, this must be mentioned when booking.
Travel and subsistence: When working in Barcelona, but outside of Barcelona City, the customer pays travel and accommodation and subsistence allowance in accordance with applicable standards. Taxis are paid by the customer if necessary. When travelling by car, mileage will be charged. If the model has a long journey a travel time allowance may sometimes be charged. Flight, boat, or train tickets and the cost of hotels, taxis, luggage and vaccinations are paid by the customer.
Reproduction fee (payment for rights to use the image): At the time of booking, it is the responsibility of the client, without due warning, to give the context and the extent to which image/film material is to be used. The material may not be used in contexts other than that stated in the booking. Providing pictures to photo agencies for resale is prohibited. All use must be agreed with the agency in advance. Additional use must be communicated to the agency prior to publication. Any use not agreed in advance will be charged for as an extra. For extended use which has not been agreed on in advance, the agency reserves the right to demand compensation for damage done to the model or other client. This is especially true if the non-agreed use breaches the exclusivity acquired by another customer. If a specified total price includes both the working and usage rights, no partial credit is available even if the client decides not to use the material or use it in less than planned.
Exclusivity/sole rights: Exclusivity enables the client to ensure that the model has not and will not be allowed to do advertisements for other companies or products. Reproduction fees do not include any right to exclusivity. If exclusivity is desired it must be notified and agreed in writing before booking. The desire to hire a model exclusively, and the terms, must be presented to the agency in good time prior to the planned date of the booking. When the agreement is approved, the final contract must be signed no later than 3 working days before the job. If a contract has not been signed in time, the agency reserves the right to cancel the model. Any cost because the model is cancelled is the responsibility of the client.
Other conditions: The booked models have agreed to work for the particular purpose, for the company and for the product stated in the booking. This consent is for a maximum of one year from the first exposure time which should not be initiated later than a maximum of 6 months after the photo shoot/filming. If the material is to be used for longer than one year, a special agreement in writing must be concluded with the agency. The model’s consent for participation is valid, however, only provided that both the fees for working hours and the reproduction fee requested by the agency have been paid. The agency is not responsible for the model having appeared in any context which is inappropriate for the client. If, during the photo shoot, the client wishes to change the pictures and/or use this must be promptly notified/discussed with the agency. The model has the right to cancel the shoot, with immediate effect, if the work does not correspond to what was stated in the booking. Any cost of interrupted photography is the responsibility of the client.
Self-promotion: All artwork (photography and/or film) may be used by the model and/or model agency as work samples, and to promote the model and/or agency. This applies to all media including digital format, the agency’s website, the model’s portfolio, the model’s set card or other printed materials to market the model/agency.
Sensitive photography: Before any photo shoot which may be perceived as sensitive (naked, transparent, underwear, smoking, alcohol, furs, etc.), the agency shall be informed in advance when booking. The model has the right to cancel the shoot, with immediate effect, if there is a delicate situation which the client failed to notify the agency of at the time of booking. Any cost of interrupted photography is the responsibility of the customer.
Contract: All contracts must be agreed in advance between the agency and booker / client. No agreements, contracts, consents, etc. may be signed by the model without the agency’s presence.
The billing address and the person responsible for payment: These shall be communicated to UNIKO model management Barcelona, as soon as possible so that no confirmation needs to be completed at the last minute. A VAT number is always necessary for foreign invoices.
Objections to invoices: Should be made within seven days from the invoice date. Late objections or objections to invoices already paid will not be accepted even if they relate to reproduction fees for cancelled campaigns, etc. The agency may not subsequently claim back salaries paid from the models, this also applies to salaries/fees relating to the rights of use for cancelled campaigns. Refunds or credit of fees already paid to the model will therefore not be authorised.
Force Majeure: The agency accepts no responsibility for any costs if the model does not appear for the job due to illness or other reason out of the agency’s control, for example, missed flights.
