Article 7) Exemption from Responsibility

Neither the site nor the entity which manages it, nor its personnel, are responsible, in civil or in penal law, for any damage caused to persons or property before, during or after the performance of the photo-shoot, which is independent of and separate to the activity of the site itself.

Article 8) Compensation

By registering on the Site, the Photographer will be entitled to access its content, and more specifically: Contest, Commissioned photography, Merchandise, Hard Copy and Monthly Reward
Payments will be made within 60 days of endorsement (end of contest, end of month, receipt of donations). Payments will be made online through Paypal or by bank transfer (transaction costs shall be borne by the beneficiary). The minimum amount payable shall be equivalent to 150$; should the amount be less than this it shall be kept pending and added to other credits until the minimum amount of 150$ is reached.

Monthly Reward

The Site offers a financial incentive to all Artists each month. Visits are automatically calculated by the Site and the totals are visible on the profile of each Photographer. Each (paying) User may visit each Model/Photographer once a day, and this visit will be automatically registered on the profile of the Model/Photographer, each time the User opens a content (video or album) created by the Model/Photographer.

The Monthly Reward is calculated thus: website monthly revenues multiply per artist's ShinyQueens monthly views divided per total ShinyQueens monthly views multiply per seventy percent. The total is the artist payout.

- Hard copy (magazines and books): Artists receive sixty percent (60%), of the net revenues based on magazine sales. The net profit is shared between Artists registered on and involved in the magazine publishing.

How we pay SQ hard copy (magazine, books) contributors: Models (if any): (magazine net revenues multiplied by the number of photographer's published pictures divided by total number of published pictures in a given published magazine) multiplied by sixty percent (60%). multiplied by twenty percent (20%). Photographers: a forty percent (40%) payout is given by sixty percent (60%) to SQ Artists minus twenty percent (20%) to SQ models represented, if any.

- Merchandise (prints, posters, t-shirts, etc.): Publishing owners receive ninety-seven percent (97%) of the net value for each item sold using their respective copyright.

The above percentages do not include processing costs; such costs will be charged on the Artists payout.

The signatory declares they have read and approve specifically: articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
