That I am welcome to use the information, visual and textual, provided in the virtual exhibition for my own personal use, including private study, scholarship, and research;

That any redistribution, repackaging, display or other use of the pictures and information in this virtual exhibition without express written consent in advance from the New York State Historical Association is prohibited;

That all images are documentation-quality and are not intended for publication. Images are copyright © New York State Historical Association, which reserves all rights.

That, because of copyright restrictions, some material may not be available for public use. I assume all responsibility for questions of copyright that may arise in publishing images and data and in the creation of reproductions of collections. In some cases, copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult to determine. Whenever possible, the New York State Historical Association provides information about copyright owners and other restrictions. The Association provides such information as a service to aid patrons in determining the appropriate use of an item, but the legal determination ultimately rests with the patron. I agree to hold harmless the New York State Historical Association, its officers and employees from any action involving infringement of the rights of any person or heirs and descendants in common law or under statutory copyright.

That the Historical Association reserves the right to refuse to grant permission for the use of data and images to those who have not complied with its policies;

That if I require further information about any of the images in the collection or would like to arrange a visit to the New York State Historical Association to examine them, I will contact the Curator of Collections.
