Image bank Utrecht University

Terms of Use

If you want to use imagery (photo, video, icon and 3D render) from the Image Bank, you will have to meet a number of conditions. When you place an order with your account, you commit to the following guidelines via an agreement button.


GDPR AND IMAGES

An image is personal data and therefore falls under the European Privacy Law (GDPR). This law obliges Utrecht University to store and send images securely. Furthermore, Utrecht University is obliged to obtain written permission from those portrayed by means of a permission form.

The image bank contains visual material depicting people in a recognizable manner. You temporarily have no access to these images. A process has been initiated for these images, in which portrayed persons again give permission with the newly developed UU permission form. This form replaces the existing UU portrait rights statement. As soon as those portrayed have signed this, the image in question will be visible for use again.

An order for images must always be suitable for the specified processing purpose. The user conditions and the UU consent form on the page per image indicate exactly which use is permitted. If this does not correspond to the specified processing purpose, the order will be rejected. And for uses other than the specified processing purpose, a new order is always place.


IMAGERY OLDER THAN FIVE YEARS

Images depicting recognizable people are available in the image bank for five years. After that, the images will no longer be offered, unless they have given permission again for another five years. So make sure that online publications do not exceed this 5-year period. For printed matter this issue arises when a reprint or new print is made.
