JPL Image Use Policy

Unless otherwise noted, images and video on JPL public web sites
(public sites ending with a address) may be used
for any purpose without prior permission, subject to the special
cases noted below. Publishers who wish to have authorization may
print this page and retain it for their records; JPL does not
issue image permissions on an image by image basis.

By electing to download the material from this web site the user agrees:

1. that Caltech makes no representations or warranties with respect to
   ownership of copyrights in the images, and does not represent others
   who may claim to be authors or owners of copyright of any of the images,
   and makes no warranties as to the quality of the images. Caltech shall
   not be responsible for any loss or expenses resulting from the use of
   the images, and you release and hold Caltech harmless from all liability
   arising from such use.
2. to use a credit line in connection with images. Unless otherwise noted
   in the caption information for an image, the credit line should be
   "Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech."
3. that the endorsement of any product or service by Caltech, JPL or NASA
   must not be claimed or implied.

Special Cases:

* Prior written approval must be obtained to use the NASA insignia logo
  (the blue "meatball" insignia), the NASA logotype (the red "worm" logo)
  and the NASA seal. These images may not be used by persons who are not
  NASA employees or on products (including Web pages) that are not NASA
  sponsored. In addition, no image may be used to explicitly or implicitly
  suggest endorsement by NASA, JPL or Caltech of commercial goods or services.
  Requests to use NASA logos may be directed to Bert Ulrich, Public Services
  Division, NASA Headquarters, Code POS, Washington, DC 20546,
  telephone (202) 358-1713, fax (202) 358-4331, email

* Prior written approval must be obtained to use the JPL logo
  (stylized JPL letters in red or other colors). Requests to use the JPL logo
  may be directed to the Institutional Communications Office,

* If an image includes an identifiable person, using the image for commercial
  purposes may infringe that person's right of privacy or publicity,
  and permission should be obtained from the person. NASA and JPL generally
  do not permit likenesses of current employees to appear on commercial products.
  For more information, consult the NASA and JPL points of contact listed above.

* JPL/Caltech contractors and vendors who wish to use JPL images in advertising
  or public relation materials should direct requests to the Institutional
  Communications Office, email

* Some image and video materials on JPL public web sites are owned by organizations
other than JPL or NASA. These owners have agreed to make their images and video
available for journalistic, educational and personal uses, but restrictions are
placed on commercial uses. To obtain permission for commercial use, contact the
copyright owner listed in each image caption. Ownership of images and video by
parties other than JPL and NASA is noted in the caption material with each image.
