About Us - Train Gif Usage
If you'd like to use some of the Train Gif images that appear
on the website, you'll have to
us for permission to do so. Before you do, please read through
these guidelines and rules for using the images:
- How to use them
Train Gif images borrowed from this website may only be used as
clipart, decoration, or as part of a virtual model railroad (gif
scene). They may not be used in a gallery or showcase setting.
- Where to use them
The Train Gifs may not be used on any sort of commercial site - that
being a site that sells products or services, or promotes the sale
of products or services for a business or individual. Personal
websites with no paid advertisements (other than for the host server)
are the only acceptable online venue. The images may also be used
for personal, non-commercial means.
- Image Sources
Please do not link directly to images on the Railways in the
Niagara Region server. Once you're ready to put up the images, make
sure they're sourced from your own server. Linking to someone else's
server is bandwidth stealing, and is a tremendous headache for the
original site owner.
- Credit and Citing
Any images borrowed from this site must display credit for the images
on every page that the images are used. The credit or
citing must also be in close proximity to the images themselves; close
proximity is defined as both parts being visible at once. The credit
must cite Railways in the Niagara Region as the source, and contain
an active and working link back to the Railways in the Niagara Region
- Copyright Considerations
Every image and piece of material contained on this site is protected
by federal and international copyright laws under intellectual property
theft. The site owners and contributors are under no obligation to
allow someone to use images if they don't feel the images will be used
properly. Please be kind whenever you seek permission to use someone
else's work, here or anywhere else.
