1) Agreement with WESTAF
Your agreement with WESTAF concerning your use of the Public Art Archive™ Service includes the General Terms of Service (http://www.westaf.org/termsandconditions.html), and Privacy Policy (http://www.westaf.org/privacy.html) available through the websites by which the Services are accessed (the “General Terms”), these Specific Terms and any other terms reached between you and WESTAF with respect to the Services (the “Agreement”).

These Specific Terms may be changed by WESTAF without notice; changes to these Specific Terms will be posted on the web site through which you access the Public Art Archive™ Service (the “Web Site”).

WESTAF is the owner, including the copyright owner, of the Public Art Archive™ Service and all Compilations and no rights therein are granted to any user or person except as expressly provided for by these Specific Terms and the other terms of the Agreement.
WESTAF does not claim ownership of the copyright in any original works of public art depicted in the Public Art Archive™ Service or its related databases.

3) Limited Right to Use Service and Archive Materials
Subject to any requirement for payment (although use of the Archive by the general public is without charge), WESTAF grants you the right to use the Service to display, download, and copy the Archive Materials solely for your own limited non-commercial, personal, and educational, research, or scholarly use, subject to any further requirements, restrictions or limitations published with respect to any specific Archive Materials.
All copies of the Archive Materials must be properly cited and bear accurate identifying information published with respect to those Archive Materials, including proprietary information, credits, and attributions, copyright and trademark notices, and a citation to the URL address of the Web Site for the Service through which the Archive Materials were obtained, e.g., http://www.publicartarchive.org.

You may not copy, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, transmit, reuse, download, repost, or use the Archive Materials or Compilations for commercial purposes, for personal gain or to create or generate derivative works, without the express prior written permission of WESTAF, unless you are the copyright owner of the Archive Materials or your use qualifies as: (1) Fair Use or another legislative exemption, (2) Permitted Educational Use, or (3) Press Use, all of which are further described below.

4) WESTAF’s Reserved Rights: Use Restrictions.

WESTAF reserves the right at any time without any notice to any person to change or modify these Specific Terms and to change, modify, cease publication of or terminate the Service, or any aspect or portion of it.

a) Fair Use and Other Exemptions
i) WESTAF does not object to your reproduction, distribution, display, transmission, performance, and use of the Archive Materials and/or Compilation if done in accordance with 17 U.S.C. §107 ("Fair Use"), 17 U.S.C. §110 (the Teach Act), or other applicable exemptions set forth in the U.S. Copyright Act and related laws.
ii)Unless otherwise noted within the Service, which generally will be noted in association with particular images or data sets, or expressly prohibited by these Specific Terms, no express permission is required from WESTAF for any use that falls within Fair Use or another legislative exemption under the U.S. Copyright Act, but two conditions apply: 1) no modifications may be made as to the integrity or attribution of the Archive Materials and Compilations; and 2) all copies of the Archive Materials and Compilations must be properly cited and bear accurate identifying information as published on the Web Site, including proprietary information, credits and attributions, copyright and trademark notices, and a citation to both the Public Art Archive as a publication of WESTAF and the URL address of the Web Site through which the Archive Materials were obtained, e.g., http://www.publicartarchive.org.
Permitted Educational Use
i) WESTAF recognizes that not every educational use qualifies for Fair Use or another legislative exemption. In order to further support the work of teachers and other educators, in accordance with WESTAF’s own charitable and educational mission to support the advancement and preservation of the arts, WESTAF consents to the following additional uses of the Archive Materials and/or Compilation (“Permitted Educational Use”):
ii) WESTAF consents to the copying, distribution, display, transmission, performance, and use of the Archive Materials and Compilations by individual teachers and other individual educators if done for the limited purpose of classroom or workshop instruction (including online instruction) in a non-profit or governmental school, museum, or other educational organization; provided, however, that the Archive Materials and Compilations are not sold or otherwise commercially distributed. The provisions concerning Permitted Educational Use do not apply to persons who package, prepare, or sell educational or instructional materials for teachers and educators nor to any person who publishes or compiles archival materials for the use of teachers and educators.
iii) Unless otherwise noted within the Service, which generally will be noted in association with particular images or data sets, or expressly prohibited by these Specific Terms, no express permission is required from WESTAF for use that falls within Permitted Educational Use, but two conditions apply: 1) no modifications may be made as to the integrity or attribution of the Archive Materials and Compilations; and 2) all copies of the Archive Materials and Compilation must be properly cited and bear accurate identifying information as published on the Web Site, including proprietary information, credits and attributions, copyright and trademark notices, and a citation to both the Public Art Archive as a publication of WESTAF and to the URL address of the Web Site through which the Archive Materials were obtained, e.g., http://www.publicartarchive.org.
c) Press Use
i)WESTAF may provide dedicated pages on the Web Sites for members of the press. Except where noted otherwise, photographs, images, press releases, and articles (the "Press Materials") that appear on these dedicated pages may be downloaded, copied, and published (and in the case of text-based materials, translated) by members of the press for the sole purpose of creating or supporting timely news stories related to WESTAF and the Public Art Archive™ Service covered in the Press Materials in newspapers, magazines, Web publications, television, or other paper, broadcast and electronic media. Use of the Press Materials for any other purpose requires the additional, prior permission of WESTAF and their use for any purpose may also require the additional, prior permission of third-party rights holders, which permission is the sole responsibility of the press user. Press Materials may not be downloaded, reproduced, or published by commercial stock houses or commercial or non-profit archives under any circumstances.
ii) To the extent you choose to use subsets of information from the Press Materials, you agree that your use will not compromise their original context, accuracy, and integrity. Photographs and other images must be reproduced in their entirety and not cropped or otherwise altered.
iii) The use of Press Materials must include the identifying information provided by WESTAF, including proprietary collection information, author, artist and other credit lines, and copyright and trademark notices, if any.

6) Requesting WESTAF’s Express Permission
a) If your proposed use of the Archive Materials does not meet the conditions for Fair Use or another legislative exemption, Permitted Educational Use or Press Use, you must request and obtain express permission from WESTAF for use of the Archive Materials. Please be advised that WESTAF is selective in granting such permission and may impose a fee for doing so. Additionally, WESTAF may condition its own permission on your obtaining permission from any third party copyright owners. All permission fees collected by WESTAF are used to further WESTAF’s support and publication of the Public Art Archive™ Service for free public access.
b) Questions concerning permissions should be directed to WESTAF using the contact information published on the Web Site under “Contact Us.”

WESTAF does not accept responsibility for inaccuracies in the Archive Materials or the consequences from use of the Service, regardless of how such inaccuracies or consequences might occur.
