Terms of Use

Real Estate; Brokers and Sales Representatives – Photos are for one-time use while you are the active/co-listed agent on the listing and cannot be transferred to another Real Estate agent.

Canadian Copyright Act c, C-42 – “The Copyright Act was amended in the Spring of 2012, under Bill C-11, rectifying the injustice that prevailed hitherto, while the copyright of photographs that were ordered belonged to the client by default. Canadian photographers are now, by default, the first owners of the copyright of the images they produce, as are illustrators, musicians, painters, and writers with their respective work. This applies to both photographs commissioned and paid by a client, and to photographs taken for non-commercial purposes. Therefore, photographers no longer have to sign an agreement with their client stating that they are the first owner of copyright; the Act now guarantees ownership by default.”

Muskoka Virtual Tours uses a tiered pricing system based on the total square feet (sqft) of a property to be captured. If a virtual tour is being captured with floorplans, the total exterior square feet that is processed will determine that pricing tier. If there are no floorplans with total sqft available, Muskoka Virtual Tours will work with the customer to determine the pricing tier to be applied.
