Trade terms and rights
When you buy a photograph from Danish Arctic Institute’s archive, you get a high-resolution digital copy (min. 300 dpi) of the requested photography. The acquisition can only be used in the specific context; the photography may not be reused in other contexts without explicit permission, and the photography may not be uploaded to the internet in high-resolution, so it can be downloaded by a third party. Photographs may not be resold or otherwise passed on to third parties.
Danish Arctic Institute owns the photographs. What is sold is the right to use a photography and not the photography itself. The price that is charged goes to our registration, storage of photographs and presentation to the internet. The cost of this is not covered by these revenues; therefore, the institute every year seeks funding from private foundations for the preservation and the update of the archive.
When using photographs from Danish Arctic Institute, the following text shall always be stated: Danish Arctic Institute/name of the photographer. The name of the photographer is stated in the information in the database. If the name of the photographer is unknown, the following must be stated: Danish Arctic Institute/unknown photographer.
Danish Arctic Institute have three collections with a special status, where the following crediting must apply:
When buying photographs where Jette Bang is the photographer, the following shall be stated: Jette Bang Photo/Danish Arctic Institute
When buying photographs where Einar Gade-Jørgensen is the photographer, the following shall be stated: Einar Gade-Jørgensen/Danish Arctic Institute
Buying photographs concerning the Danmark-Expedition, the following shall be stated: Trolle-legatet/Danish Arctic Institute/the photographer’s name
