TERMS OF USE

John Mason


Please understand that these "Terms of Use" are provided for both your protection and mine; they are written to clarify the terms under which the images contained within this collection may be used. These terms are legally binding.

  1. Only the graphics specified within the collection are permitted to be downloaded, uploaded or placed in another directory; all images that comprise the site itself are the sole, exclusive and permanent property of the artist and may not be reproduced by any method including screen captures and/or downloads, except as stipulated in each collection.

  2. Should you choose to use any graphic found within the collection, whether a complete set or individual image, you must use the linking instructions and logo near the bottom of the page. The instructions and logo must be within the same page that the image(s) appear(s). A text link is permitted. This is not negotiable. Using this logo and link is part of the copyright. A page of "credits" is not acceptable. Please credit my image(s) actually on the page(s) of use. (If an image is used only on your desktop as wallpaper, no linkback is required.)

  3. You may not alter, change, colorize, resize or modify any or all images without specifically indicated approval with the exceptions of adding text to any supplied blank button or image designed for this purpose, or if the images are offered for the specific purpose of altering, changing, colorizing, resizing, or modifying (such as wallpaper tiles and dingbats, which may be resized, colored, and/or textured, as long as they retain their basic designs.) You may not use any of the images within the collection to create filters, brushes, tubes, nozzles, fonts or other current/future software plugins.

  4. Images from the collection may NOT be used by individuals whose intent in developing web sites for others is for gain (whether actual income and /or bartered for trade) whether from the site itself or from the web page developing service. Use of my images by individuals developing websites with intent to gain is unequivocally denied unless a license and written permission from me has been obtained PRIOR to the downloading, uploading or use of any graphic. You may not use graphics from the collection if you are developing websites for others at no charge and then advertise these sites within a client portfolio with intent to acquire additional paying clients.

  5. Images within the collection are not to be placed in any online collection or archive; in addition, no images are to be redistributed for financial gain or placed within any compilation CD, software or other reproducible media.

  6. Any site whose intent is to earn revenue (whether actual income and /or bartered for trade) is considered a commercial endeavor. The collection graphics are for not-for-profit (i.e. personal) web pages only. If you are a commercial endeavor and would like to purchase a license to use these graphics, please email me.

  7. Load the images to your own server or web site directory. Do not link directly to my images. If you are unsure how to load to your own directory, please consult the upload data on the site service you are using. Web TV users: please use a Web TV Transloader service.

  8. Please refrain from using the collection within pages promoting child abuse, hate, bigotry, racism, animal abuse and/or any pornographic related activities.

  9. If you use images from the collection, please email me the URL of the completed page.

  10. If for any reason I request that the images from the collection be removed from your site, you will be given 72 hours to comply. Violations of the terms of use could subject you to this request.
