1. The Yale University Art Gallery retains all rights, including copyright, in data, images, software, documentation, text, and other information contained in these files (collectively, the "Materials") subject in some cases to third-party rights. Copyright and other proprietary rights may be held by individuals or entities other than, or in addition to, the Gallery.

2. The Gallery is making the Materials available for limited non-commercial, educational, and personal use only, in accordance with the fair use provisions of the copyright laws.

Users must cite the author and source of the Materials as they would material from any printed work, and the citations should include the URL "http://artgallery.yale.edu" in addition to all copyright and any proprietary notices contained on the Materials.  Any use of the Materials that does not qualify as fair use is subject to the Gallery's prior written approval, and the user must request and receive such approval prior to any use.  Copying or redistribution in any manner for commercial use, including commercial publication, or for personal gain is strictly prohibited, without the express prior written permission of the Gallery or the relevant third-party rights holder, as the case may be.

3. The Gallery does not warrant that the use of the Materials displayed on the site will not infringe the rights of third parties. For example, the rights to certain works of art, as well as photographs of those works, may be held by the artist or the artist's heirs and not the Gallery. The responsibility for determining whether the Gallery or some other party holds the relevant rights in a work of art or in any of the Materials remains solely with the user. The Gallery will have no responsibility for making any such determination, or in securing rights from a third party, for any user.

The Trademarks of third parties may also be displayed on this site. Nothing contained in this site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademarks displayed on the site without the express written permission of the Gallery or any third party that may own the Trademarks displayed on the site. Any unauthorized use of the Trademarks or any other Materials, except as authorized in these Terms and Conditions, is strictly prohibited.

5. Without limiting the foregoing, all Materials on the site are provided "AS IS" WITHOUT A WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. The Gallery assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable for, any damages to, or viruses that may infect, your computer equipment or other property on account of your use of the site or your downloading of any Materials from the site.

6. The Gallery has not reviewed all of the sites linked to the site and is not responsible for the content of any off-site pages or other sites linked to the site. Your linking to any off-site pages or other sites is at your own risk.

7. The Gallery may at any time revise these Terms and Conditions by updating this posting. You are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then-current Terms and Conditions.
