Admitting the unauthorised use, stating when and where the images were obtained, not requesting us to prove the misuse or demonstrate our ownership, providing an account of any profit or gain by its use, apologising for the misuse, giving an undertaking not to repeat the misuse, making an offer to compensate us. Any payment should accompany the offer.
