The use of photographic content from the Image Bank comes with General Terms of Use. Both non-UU employees and UU employees are required to meet these terms.


Utrecht University employees who release images from the Image Bank to non-UU employees are responsible for the non-UU employees' compliance with the General Terms of Use and the photo-specific terms of use. The non-UU party itself is legally responsible for the actual publication of an image from the Image Bank.


Publications of photographic content in resources of third parties are required to:
-written permission of the portrayed;
-reference the photographer;
-reference the artist or architect and pictured work (when applicable);
-source Utrecht University in the caption of the photo or in the colophon;
-publishing is only allowed in the context of the profiling of Utrecht University with a clearly defined processing purpose.

Third-party resources that feature the Utrecht University logo are preferred. If the university's logo is not featured, the caption is required to be explicitly about characterising Utrecht University. Utrecht University is not responsible for the publication of photographic content it does not own the portrait rights to. The publishing party is liable for any illegitimate use of photographic content in terms of portrait law or copyright law.
