All Media is protected by international copyright laws.
This site contains both Media that depicts a visible watermark (Watermarked Media) and Media that does not contain a visible watermark (Non-Watermarked Media). IDEA allows you to search for, view, and use Watermarked Media only as permitted below. If you have purchased Non-Watermarked Media, it shall be used only as permitted below. All rights not specifically granted under this Agreement are reserved to IDEA.

If a license is revoked, you agree to immediately stop using this site and the Media, delete all Media and all copies from all media and destroy all other copies. Your use of this site and any Media shall comply with all applicable law.
Despite our best efforts to provide accurate information, this site may contain technical or other mistakes, inaccuracies or typographical errors. Additionally, this site and any Media may include historically and culturally important Media and text that may contain subjects that reflect the social attitudes and circumstances of a particular time or location. You should be aware that your search may display results containing content that may seem inappropriate to its context, or text that could be potentially offensive. You are solely responsible for determining whether your use of any Media requires the consent of any third party or the license of any additional rights, and you should not rely solely on the information provided by Covid19signs.com. If you are unsure whether additional third-party rights are needed for your use, you are responsible for consulting with competent rights management professionals or legal counsellors.

Use of Watermarked Media – Using Media for comping
Media includes without limitation all digital images, signs and illustrations and any related textual information. Media includes visibly or electronically watermarked and reduced resolution Media (Non-Watermarked or Watermarked Media) or higher resolution non-watermarked Media (Non-Watermarked Media).
Conditional upon your compliance with this Agreement, IDEA grants you a limited license to download Watermarked Media solely for evaluating/comping whether you wish to purchase a license to the Non-Watermarked Media. You may not use a Watermarked Media in any final materials distributed within your company or any materials distributed outside of your company or to the public or in any online or other electronic distribution system. You may not modify, alter, or remove any visible or electronic watermark, or disassemble, reverse engineer, or decompile any Media. Except for this limited, internal testing and sample use, IDEA grants you no other rights, and you may not distribute, sublicense or make available for use or distribution any Watermarked Media.
Royalty-Free License – Concept
What Royalty-Free means is that you pay for the Media only once and then you can use it as many times as you like, with just a few restrictions (see below). In other words, there are no license fees except the initial fee and no other royalties to be paid except those included in the initial cost. You are allowed to use the image for an unlimited number of copies, printed and/or electronic. This license is granted in perpetuity and it is worldwide valid.
The Royalty-Free license is granted ONLY for the non-watermarked Media you buy using the download button or link; all the other versions (small watermarked and non-watermarked thumbnails which are visible on the public site) are entirely copyrighted.
