2. CONTRACTOR BUSINESS CONDUCT
Getty Images requires you to conduct your interactions and activities with integrity and in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations and the following Getty Images policies.
Requirements for Compliance with Getty Images Fair and Safe Policies and Practices
When customers choose Getty Images, they do so not only because of the quality of our content, but because they know that it has been produced with the highest standards of legal, ethical and professional behavior. We work to create safe, inclusive and fair working environments and we expect and require that you will share our commitment to these standards in both your activities and relationships when working with us and in your community.
Getty Images requires that you maintain an environment where all people are treated fairly, feel respected and valued, and are treated with professionalism, respect and dignity, regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, disability, or any other basis protected by law. All forms and mediums of harassment, discrimination or bullying by you, your employees, and/or agents, in performing services or creating content for Getty Images, representing yourself as working for Getty Images or otherwise, whether verbal, physical, digital, or visual, in any context, are strictly prohibited.
We understand that you are independent, however your conduct and business practice while working on content for Getty Images (or representing yourself as working for Getty Images, or otherwise) will reflect upon the integrity and standing of everyone involved and we prohibit any activities which tend to injure or otherwise negatively affect the reputation and goodwill associated with Getty Images. How you conduct yourself is just as important as the content you create.
Please also remember that whenever someone can influence another’s career, such as content creators vis-a-vis models/editors, there is an imbalance of power that favors the influencer. Because of that imbalance, no matter how slight, please always take extra care as the holder of that power so that there are no misunderstandings or perceptions of advantage.
This applies whether you are documenting world-changing events, sharing images you love, working with modelling talent, or commenting on the greater community.
Specific Requirements for Working with Models
In addition, to avoid putting models in situations where they may not feel comfortable or which might lead to accusations of harassment, we require that you:
- For the tasks that you expect models to perform, make sure they understand the subject you are portraying in the imagery and how it may be used by clients.
- Gain approval from the models in advance for any shoot involving nudity, sheer clothing, lingerie, swimwear, simulated drug or alcohol use, simulated violence, sexually suggestive poses or such other sensitive topics.
- Please do not assume that models are comfortable – always ask to make sure!
- Models under the age of 18 should always be accompanied on a shoot by a parent or other legal guardian.
- Models over the age of 18 should have the opportunity to have another person of their choosing join them at any shoot.
- In all cases it is best practice to have a third-party present during a shoot.
- Take local laws and customs into account to ensure that neither you, nor your colleagues or your models/talent are put at risk.
- Recreational drugs of all kinds, including alcohol, should be avoided and are not permitted at a shoot at any time, regardless of local laws.
- Always keep the distinction between professional and personal relationships clear.
Conflicts of Interest
You are prohibited from participating in any activity or association that creates (or appears to create) a conflict of interest with or on behalf of Getty Images. For example, any familial relationships you may have with Getty Images employees, officers and directors must be disclosed and written permission must be provided by an authorized representative of Getty Images prior to forming any business relationship.
Gifts and Gratuities
You will not give Getty Images’ employees or customers lavish or extravagant gifts, gratuities or entertainment. Gifts or favors may not be accepted from Contributors with the purpose or perceived purpose of influencing someone in connection with Getty Images business.
Breach of Business Conduct/Reporting Illegal and/or Unethical Behavior
If Getty Images determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated any of the terms of the policies set out herein, we may terminate your Contractor Agreement immediately upon notice to you.
If you are – or become aware of – any situation that you believe constitutes a breach of any of the policies set out herein, or any other type of legal or ethical violation, please contact us via our whistleblower hotline at: https://gettyimages.alertline.com/gcs/welcome
All violations will be addressed promptly in accordance with the Getty Images Whistle Blower Policy.
If you have questions about your Contractor Agreement, please email your Getty Images contact.
This Assignment Services Guide may be updated from time to time by posting on the Contributor Community website. If you continue to provide any services pursuant to a Contractor Agreement after any such update is posted on the Contributor Community website, you will be deemed to have accepted the updated terms.
