Thank you for joining the Artists Registry at the National September 11 Memorial Museum (9/11 Memorial Museum). Whether you intend to use this site as a contributing artist (“Artist”) or as a researcher (“Researcher”), we ask that you please accept the terms of this agreement, which will be applied to all your future uses of the site. Once you accept this agreement, you will be able to customize your “Favorites” and contribute artwork (“Work”), if you choose to do so. A Researcher who contributes Work will be considered an Artist for purposes of this agreement.
This agreement may be updated from time to time at the sole discretion of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center Foundation, Inc. (the “9/11 Memorial”).
The Artist represents and warrants that he/she owns the copyright and all other rights to his/her Work and agrees to grant the 9/11 Memorial a license to display his/her submitted Work within the Artists Registry database on the world wide web, within the physical Memorial Museum when it is open to the public, and in any educational publications produced by the Memorial Museum.
The Artists Registry at the National September 11 Memorial Museum employs standard safeguards to protect Work submitted to the database and displayed on the web. The Artist hereby acknowledges and accepts that the 9/11 Memorial, its directors, employees, representatives and agents shall not be liable to the Artist for any infringement or misappropriation by a third party of any intellectual property or similar rights (including any moral rights) that the Artist may have in the Work. The Artist further agrees to release, discharge, indemnify and hold the 9/11 Memorial, its directors, employees, representatives and agents harmless from any and all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses arising out of any claim by a third party that the Work infringes or misappropriates such third party's intellectual property or similar rights (including any moral rights). Further, the Artist hereby releases the 9/11 Memorial from any claim for payment or any other compensation relating to the use of the Work.
Both the Artist and the Researcher agree to respect the copyrights of others and comply with all applicable licenses in their use of the Artists Registry. If you believe that your rights are being violated, please review our copyright policy and take-down notice procedure here.
9/11 Memorial is the sole arbiter of the content of its site, and, thus, retains the right to remove any Work from the site. 9/11 Memorial has no obligation (express or implied) to use (or post) the Work or, if commenced, to continue to use (or post) the Work and may at any time abandon the use (or posting) of the Work for any reason, with or without legal justification or excuse.
By clicking “I agree” below, the Artist or the Researcher, as applicable, acknowledges that he/she is of legal age and has read, fully understands, and agrees to be bound by the terms above.
If you reject the proposed terms above, you will not have an opportunity at this time to contribute Work (if you are an Artist) or to utilize the “Favorites” tool (if you are an Artist or a Researcher).
You acknowledge that use of the Artist’s Registry is also governed by the 9/11 Memorial site’s Term of Use.
