Terms and Conditions

The purchase of a photographic print, transparency or digital image does not carry with it the right to make a reproduction.

An application must be made for reproduction rights and permission to reproduce is dependent on payment and the full acceptance of the terms and conditions detailed below.

Any unauthorised reproduction of The American Museum in Britain’s copyright images constitutes an infringement of rights, rendering those responsible liable for the payment of fees not less than twice that charged for properly authorised reproduction, in addition to damages, if appropriate.

Permission to reproduce the image covers the stated publication for the stated purpose only. The rights that are granted in respect of the image are non-exclusive. All reprints, further editions or use of the image, including an increase in print run, requires a new application to the Museum and payment of a further fee.

Copyright of the image remains the property of The American Museum in Britain.

It is the responsibility of the customer to obtain all necessary permissions from the owner of any copyright in the image. The client agrees to indemnify the Museum against any costs of damages arising from the failure to obtain such permissions.

Each reproduction of the image must include the acknowledgement; ‘Produced courtesy of The American Museum in Britain (Bath, UK)’ (unless indicated otherwise). The cropping or manipulation of images is not allowed without express permission, and any such alterations to the presentation of an image must be acknowledged alongside.

Images used in digital format must not be displayed at a resolution higher than 300 x 300 pixels and must not be scanned or stored at a resolution higher than 72dpi.

The Client must send at least one complimentary copy of each publication or product to the Museum for our records.

The Museum’s delivery note will list all the pictures delivered to the Client, which shall be presumed to have been received in good condition unless the Museum is notified of any discrepancy or damage within three days of delivery. The Client is responsible for the safe keeping and return of all loaned materials from the time they are received by the Client, or the Client’s representative or courier, and must inform the Museum of any damage, loss, or misuse of these materials during this period.

The Client must return every transparency to the Museum on or before the due date by any method affording proof of delivery. Adequate protection must be given to pictures in transit. A delivery note listing and totalling the returned pictures must be enclosed with written advice of the Client’s name, project and publication details. Clients returning pictures without their mount of without their caption or with other data missing or defaced, will incur further charges. Materials hired and not returned by the Client within twelve weeks of the due date of return may be presumed lost and subsequently charged for at current rates on the sole discretion of the Museum.

It is strictly prohibited to make duplicates, including digital duplication, of any images supplied by the Museum, except where such is incidentally and wholly necessary to the process of production for products properly licensed by the Museum. At the conclusion of such production, all intermediate copies of the material must be destroyed.
