Notice and Takedown Policy Statement

The Science Museum Group is committed to protecting copyright and related rights wherever possible. Upon initial verification of a complaint, it is our policy to suspend access to the content in question.

Although all reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that content that infringes the law will not be present on our websites or any publication or broadcast to which we have supplied content from our collection, the risk cannot be entirely eliminated. A variety of measures are taken to minimise and manage risk including the publication and implementation of a ‘notice and takedown’ policy.

The Science Museum Group has made all reasonable efforts to ensure that images and other content on our website and images we have published elsewhere are reproduced with the consent of their copyright holders. However, there are some copyright holders who so far have proved to be untraceable.
