Disclaimer: As far as publication matters are concerned we will issue media releases and internet posts in the
name of the relevant organisation/individual after approval. The organisation is the publisher. It will
indemnify us if we suffer loss or damage arising out of the content of any material we issue with
approval. We regard all matters that are not for publication as confidential and our staff have
confidentiality clauses in their contracts of employment. For crisis management we need to know the
full facts in order to assist properly. Nothing will be sent to the media by us that is not approved.
It is understood that Recognition will choose press photographers and freelance TV crews based on
the appropriate skills and quality for the task. Unless a separate agreement is reached copyright for
photographs taken by Recognition’s retained photographer and video taken by TV crews is passed to
the client but please note other photographers maintain the copyright for their work. Any printing and
design work will be quoted to before it is booked and permission will be sought before ordering other
items. Video storyboards are approved by clients before shooting and one edit session is included in
the price. It is also understood that clients will not directly engage our staff or contractors and that,
unless otherwise agreed, we will be the only PR consultancy representing them to the media.
Some clients require an out-of-hours contact person in case of emergency, sadly this is a frequent
occurrence. We have set up a rota system, which will ensure someone is available to deal with
matters after 5.30pm weekdays and throughout the weekend. We reserve the right to charge our
prevailing “crisis management” rate for this service.
