Temporary checks and the changing of objects
In case of long term loans it may occur that objects vulnerable for lighting and climate influences should be swapped after a certain period. In case such a swap is necessary the costs involved will be charged to the borrower. The fees are the same as those mentioned above for packaging, transport and courier.
For any kind of publication of the objects on loan, only (digital) images may be used which are provided by the lender. If professional images are not yet available, these will be made by a free-lance professional photographer for the Nederlands Fotomuseum. In that case the cost price will be charged.

Copyrights and credits / Intellectual ownership
For the use of photographs in relation to the exhibition (catalogues, publicity material etc.) a fee will be charged. Borrower will consult with the Nederlands Fotomuseum or other rightful claimants, about the allowance to use the material.
The Nederlands Fotomuseum manages the archive and the copyright for a number of photographers/descendants/copyright holders. The museum has contractual agreements to charge a copyright fee for use of the material. Earnings from copyrights are shared between the photographers/descendants/rightful claimants and the Nederlands Fotomuseum and are used by the museum to take care of the collection. Borrowers are obliged to look for and contact other rightful claimants themselves. Our fees can be viewed at our page photographs for publications.
