As we've learned to say “Another one bites the dust…“, Deutsche Telekom has announced today the closure of the microstock agency Polylooks that was probably not able to reach the desired position in the market. The “European Style” wasn't enough…
This is the announcement via mail:
We regret to inform you that Deutsche Telekom has decided to withdraw its Polylooks online photo agency from its portfolio. It is planned to phase out the service by December 31, 2010.
Therefore, we are hereby terminating the Agreement between you and Deutsche Telekom AG, Products & Innovation, based on the “General Terms and Conditions for Licensing of Image Materials for Online Portal Polylooks” as well as the “General Registration Conditions for use of Image Portal Polylooks“. This termination shall become effective with expiry of December 31, 2010. Your photos will continue to be available for sale until then.
All image licenses already issued or sold to licensees before this termination date will remain valid after December 31, 2010 allowing licensees to continue using the purchased images in future.
Your credit balance will be paid out to you automatically after that date. We will provide you with details of the payment in good time. For answers to any open questions you may have, please go to our FAQs
We would like to thank you for the trust you placed in us and our service.
Your Polylooks team
