Privacy Policy and FAQs

Image Rights and Guidelines
For online assistance, please contact rcavanaugh@hmh.org.

Formats
HMH can provide most images as digital files for certain uses. Slides are provided for personal or scholarly use only; reproductions are not permitted from this medium. All works must be presented in their entirety without cropping or overprinting unless prior written approval is obtained from HMH.

Requests for Images
All requests must be made in writing by e-mail to info@hmh.org. Please specify the nature of the project and include all details of the proposed use. For a book, please include print run, publication date, title, author, and languages in which the book will appear. Also, indicate where in the publication the image will appear (e.g., cover, interior pages, back cover). For all other requests, please provide as much detailed information as possible concerning the image. Useful information includes artist, title, date, medium and HMH accession number if known.

If no photography exists for the image you request, we may be able to photograph the object for an additional fee.

Payment
Upon receipt of your request, we will send you an invoice outlining the fees due and our reproduction guidelines. All requests for fee waivers must be placed in writing. We accept payment by credit card in U.S. dollars and by money order or check drawn on a U.S. bank, payable to "Holocaust Museum Houston." Fees are nonrefundable, and permission is granted for one edition, one use only.

Use
In return for the use-fee payment, HMH grants approval only to the extent of its rights relating to the request. Certain works of art, as well as photographs of those works, may be protected by copyright, trademark or related interests not owned by HMH. The responsibility for securing any other necessary permission devolves to the applicant.
