If Licensee has any questions about the types of uses that are Permitted Uses or prohibited uses, Licensee is encouraged to contact SPS at info@spsinc.net for confirmation prior to engaging in any such use of the Image.

Attribution and Copyright Notice. In each instance that Licensee uses, displays or otherwise publishes the Image, Licensee must display an attribution statement that notes the source of the image, along with a copyright notice using the precise language as set forth below (collectively, the “Statements”). Licensee must display the Statements prominently and proximately to the Image. “Prominent and proximate” means that the Statements are displayed directly below, above or adjacent to the Image without any scrolling (in instances of electronic uses) or page turning (in instances of uses in print) required.
