Terms and conditions

How "Exhibbit" works

  1. Exhibbit Trading Limited trading as “Exhibbit” (“we/our”) provides virtual exhibition spaces for hire, and also custom built spaces for a clients exclusive use.

  2. The client (“you/your”) opens an account in their name to access our services. Opening the account is free.

  3. “Exhibbit” then provides you with an online place to create exhibitions, embedded in your website or in any other website of your choice, or (in the case of custom built galleries) a virtual gallery to your specifications.

  4. You retain ownership of all your intellectual property rights in your artworks. The only intellectual property right we are given in your artworks is a non-exclusive licence to display them in the exhibition(s) on our website and to use and/or refer to them in our promotional material. You may opt out of giving us the right to use and/or refer to your artworks/ exhibitions both on our website and/or in our promotional materials in both hardcopy and electronic form by checking the “Keep exhibition private” box in your user account.

  5. “Exhibbit” retains ownership, control and the right to use and provide their website and all content on it (including all digital imagery, photographs, text, articles, audio, video and animation files.) The copyright and any other intellectual property rights in any material we provide remain our property. Provided you comply with these terms of use you may electronically reproduce the content of your exhibitions created from our website, and display or distribute the content of those exhibitions to whom ever you choose.
