Text (excluding lyrics, riddles, brainteasers, and jokes) appearing on NIEHS web pages was either prepared by employees of the United States Government as part of their official duties and therefore not subject to copyright or prepared under contracts that gave the NIEHS the right to place the text into the public domain. The same is true of most publications available for downloading from this web site. You may freely copy that material and, at your discretion, credit NIEHS with a "Courtesy: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences" notation. If copyrighted text is included on an NIEHS web page or in an NIEHS publication, it will be specifically identified. For information about copyright holders, how they can be contacted, and what, if any, use those owners allow of their material, please provide the URL to the webmaster identified as contact for the page on which the text or download link appears. If no contact is given, contact the NIEHS Kids Web (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you would like to make NIEHS information available from your site, please provide a link to the page or document rather than copying the information to your site. This will assure that your users have the latest information from NIEHS.
With the exception of NIEHS logos, permission to use NIEHS graphics is granted on a case by case basis. Some are public domain, some are created by NIEHS contractors, and some are used by NIEHS with specific permission granted by the owner. Therefore photos and illustrations found on the NIEHS web site should not be reused without permission.
For information about the copyright holders of a given photo or illustration on the NIEHS web site, how the owners can be contacted, and what, if any, use those owners allow of their material, please provide the URL and file name to the webmaster identified as contact for the page on which the photo or illustration appears. If no contact is given, contact the NIEHS Kids Web (email@example.com).
Granting the right to use a graphic from the NIEHS web site does not explicitly or implicitly convey NIEHS's endorsement of the site where it is used. If an NIEHS image includes an identifiable person, using the image may infringe that person's right of privacy or publicity, and permission should be obtained from the person. Once you receive confirmation from us that a graphic is available for use, you may, at your discretion, credit NIEHS with a "Courtesy: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences" notation.
