The following acts are not permitted in respect of any of the content featured on FWAF’s website:

• Reproduction of website content for commercial purposes*, or any rental, leasing or lending of content obtained or derived from the website

• Any use of the FWAF logo without prior consent from FWAF

• Any considerable public dissemination, display or hosting of website content via any third-party platforms, including without limitation, the substantial or repeated extraction and/or storage of FWAF website content in any retrieval system, or inclusion in any other computer program or work

• Reproduction of FWAF website content on any social media platforms, except where other terms allow

• Inaccurate or distorted reproductions except where other terms allow

• False attribution of authorial or copyright credits, and the removal of any FWAF metadata from digital file formats

• Unauthorised text/data mining of website content and metadata

*Commercial activities, in addition to obviously commercial activities such as merchandise production, use of FWAF images editorially in films and on TV, in publications that are sold, in advertisements and commercial promotions, FWAF would usually regard the following uses of FWAF imagery as commercial activity:

• Use online or in print by commercial organisations, including (for the avoidance of doubt) trading arms of charities;

• Use on an individual’s website in such a way that adds value to their business, or for promotional purposes, or where offering a service to third parties

• Use of images by university presses in publications online or in print;

• Use in publicity and promotional material connected with commercial events;

• Unsolicited use of images by news media, including front covers and centre-page spreads;

• Use in compilations of past examination papers;

• Use by commercial galleries and auction houses.

Under charity law, conflicts can arise when one charity is seen as assisting another. Therefore FWAF needs to treat other charities (and their trading arms) as if they were ‘commercial’ organisations.
FWAF is committed to providing online access to as many of the works in its collection as possible, via  www.flemingcollection.com/searchthecollection.

FWAF actively develops agreements with copyright holders and other licensing agents for the artists they represent. Whilst these agreements enable FWAF to illustrate artworks, the permissions do not extend to any other party, unless specified.

Commercial enquiries about other FWAF content (e.g. text, video or design work) should be emailed to info@flemingcollection.com

Please note that the further reproduction of artworks, or any other images or content, made available by FWAF may constitute an infringement of copyright. It is therefore your responsibility to investigate and obtain permission from copyright holders or their agents before publishing such content.
