Terms of Service for the Swedish Museum Open Collection. Last Updated: 2023-12-10

Welcome to the Swedish Museum Open Collection! By contributing media to our open and public collection, you agree to abide by the following Terms of Service:

1. Acceptance of Terms

By submitting your media to the Swedish Museum Open Collection, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to comply with these Terms of Service. If you do not agree with any part of these terms, please do not contribute media to the collection.

2. Ownership and Rights

You retain all rights to the media you submit, but you grant the Swedish Museum a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, reproduce, distribute, and display the media for educational and promotional purposes related to the museum.

3. Eligibility

You must be the owner of the media you submit, or you must have the necessary permissions and rights to contribute it to the open collection. By submitting media, you warrant that you have the legal right to do so.

4. Content Guidelines

Media submitted to the open collection must adhere to ethical standards and be appropriate for public viewing. The Swedish Museum reserves the right to reject or remove any content that violates these guidelines.

5. Attribution

The Swedish Museum will make reasonable efforts to provide attribution to the creator of the media when used by the museum. However, you acknowledge that the museum may not be able to provide attribution in all cases.

6. Licenser

Swedish Museum Licenser 0: Absolute Freedom

Choosing Licenser 0 means embracing the spirit of generosity. Creators who opt for Licenser 0 waive all their copyright and related rights, allowing their work to enter the public domain. It's the ideal choice for those who want their creations to be freely accessible, shared, and built upon without any restrictions.

Swedish Museum Licenser By: Tailored Control

For creators seeking a balance between openness and control, Licenser By offers a customizable licensing solution. With Licenser By, creators retain their copyright but can define the terms under which others can use, share, and remix their work. It's a nuanced approach, granting creators the authority to shape how their creations are shared with the world.

7. Removal of Content

The Swedish Museum reserves the right to remove any contributed media at its discretion. If you wish to have your media removed, please contact the museum.

8. Changes to Terms

The Swedish Museum may update these Terms of Service from time to time. Any changes will be effective upon posting the updated terms on the museum's website. It is your responsibility to review the terms periodically.
