Acceptance of the present conditions does not in any way constitute a dependent working relationship between the User and Photoweb, particularly with respect to employment law.
4. Inscription – Accès au service
To register for Store mode, Users must have taken out a DYNAMIC subscription, or an equivalent subscription including this feature.
When registering, the User is required to provide a number of additional pieces of information in a section of their profile named “professional information”.
This information specifies, in particular,
– Whether the User is a legal entity: Their corporate name, head office address, telephone number, email address, the name of the director, company registration number and their international VAT registration number,
– Whether the User is a natural, professional person (self employed, etc.): Their forename and surname, address, telephone number, email address, company registration number and international VAT registration number.
The User confirms that the information they provide is complete, accurate and up to date. Because Photoweb does not have any means of verifying this information, the User agrees to inform Photoweb of any changes to this information and agrees to keep it up to date via the administration interface made available to them.
Acceptance of the these general conditions is a prerequisite for activation of the online store mode.
5. Services provided to the User
Photoweb provides Users with an online space and a dedicated interface enabling them to offer their Photographs for sale, and also a set of integrated tools enabling the User to enter into commercial relationships with their potential Customers.
The User therefore expressly authorizes Photoweb to distribute, publish and display the items they place online for the purpose of presenting them for sale in accordance with the terms and conditions defined below.
Photoweb is mandated by the User to sell Products and Receive payment for said products at the Prices defined by the User, a portion of which is to be paid to the User after each Purchase in accordance with the conditions set out below.
Photoweb provides a Product Production service in this respect. The User freely concedes to Photoweb, for the sole purpose of offering products for sale to the User’s Customers, all required rights to the Photographs placed online in their Joomeo Store.
6. Joomeo Store
The User has the right to store Photographs on Joomeo. Users with the necessary access rights can view these Photographs and order Products. The User is free to use the tools made available to them by Photoweb for the purpose of advertising and selling their Photographs in any way they see fit, and assumes full responsibility for doing so.
Please note: some of the image formats available on Joomeo cannot be used with certain Products. The User is responsible for ensuring, when activating and populating their Joomeo Store, that the image formats of all the Photographs they are making available for use with Products are actually compatible with the Products available from their Joomeo Store.
7. Establishing Product Prices
The User sets the Product Selling Prices via their account’s admin interface, taking into account the fact that a minimum fee to cover Product order processing, production and delivery costs, as well as Photoweb’s minimum Commission, is debited per Product.
In monetary terms, the User receives profit earned at a global margin rate applied across the whole range of Products offered for sale on the Joomeo website. By default, this margin rate is set at 200%. The user may modify this margin rate at any time via their account admin interface.
The Selling price for each Product is thus defined in the following way:
Selling price Ex. Tax = Base price Ex. Tax of said Product + the Earnings defined by the User in the form of a margin rate applied to the Base price + the Commission received by Photoweb.
A “my Catalog” feature allows the User to see the price and fee breakdown for each of the Products offered in their Joomeo Store: Base price Ex. Tax, total Earnings due to the User, Commission made by Photoweb, and the Product Selling price both Ex. Tax and Incl. Tax.
8. Placing Photographs online

Order processing and delivery fees for the Product (which are specific to each product).
10. User Earnings
The User may choose to request payment of their Earnings at any time.
Earnings can only be paid to the User when the cumulative total amount due from Photoweb with respect to Earnings reaches a total of 50 (fifty) euros Ex. Tax.

The User may at any time, via their account admin interface and subject to the terms specified in these Conditions, generate a payment request / invoice submission request for the total Earnings due to them at the time the request is made.
The first time such a payment request is made, the User will be required to provide their banking details, which are necessary in order to transfer the Earnings. This information must be provided before any payment request can be fulfilled.
When a payment request is made, an email containing the following information is automatically generated and sent to the User:
– The payment request n°,
– The payment request date,
– The customer details,
– The reference details and monetary information for the orders concerned,
– The total Ex. Tax due to the User,

In case of cancellation of the Purchase or non-receipt of payment for the Products purchased, there will be no Earnings due to the user from the Purchase.
