Use of The Photographs
All photographs are copyrighted as shown, and can only be obtained by either (a) purchase via one of my 3XM sales galleries (where applicable) or (b) contacting me via this site to request copies. Any attempt to obtain copies of the photograph files directly from either this site or the sales galleries will be treated as a breach of copyright, and may result in legal action being taken.
Items purchased from the sales galleries are sold for personal use only and may not be copied, sold to any third parties, or used in any form of publication, website or any other form of electronic media without my consent in writing.
Any enquiries about using or obtaining copies of these photographs should be directed to me via the "Contact Me" link on the left. Enquiries are likely to be classified as follows :
Files, prints and other products using the photographs are not be copied, reproduced in any media, sold on, either as prints or other photographic merchantdise, used to promote any commercial venture, or passed to any third parties without my consent in writing. I will, however, tolerate use on a personal social network site in this category providing that no attempt to pass this work off as anyone elses but mine is made, and none of the above conditions are breached.
Photographs may be used to promote an event or organisation in any material or media where no charge is made to customers or potential customers. They may be used in advertising in third party publications (but not articles or features). They may be passed to any third party involved in producing the promotional material, but not to any other third parties, and under no circumstances be exchanged for any payment.
Where practical, I would request that the photographs be accompanied by a credit to "Richard J. Kyte" and if used on a website, a link back to this site would be greatly appreciated.
This covers any use of photographs on merchandise sold to third parties or publication in any media not covered in the "Promotional Use" section. Terms will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
As of June 2016, the distribution of "Event" photographs will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
I am prepared to release photographs taken on heritage railways or of heritage locomotives free-of-charge to either the railway involved or the owners of the locomotive with promotional use rights (this includes any narrow gauge railway photographs). Please contact me using one of the "Contact" links, specifying which photograph(s) you are interested in.
I am prepared to negotiate for the use of my heritage properties work subject to being contacted by official representatives of the property in question.
It is my intention that, unless working to a prior agreement, all photographs taken by me remain copyrighted to me at all times, and that the final say on what happens with the photographs is mine. I will only consider surrendering the copyright of any material on this site if I am offered a significant amount of money (and possibly not even then), and copyright to any of the "Jerry the Chinchilla" photographs is not for sale at any price.
