From time to time we may revise this User Agreement, so be sure to check this web page occasionally. If we do make material changes, we will post a notice on our home page that the User Agreement has been modified and provide a link to the revised User Agreement.

Except where otherwise indicated, CELDF owns or licenses the copyright in all the materials on the CELDF Site, including text, graphics, logos, button icons, audio clips, video clips, photographs, and software, and those rights are protected by United States and international copyright laws and other intellectual property laws (“CELDF Site Content”). To the extent your use of material on the CELDF Site does not constitute “fair use” for which you do not need our permission, the following rules apply to use of the material:
Automatically Permitted Distribution
Unless the specific web page from which CELDF text material is available indicates you may not do so, you may copy or distribute text materials that appear on the CELDF Site, in print or digital format, subject to three limitations:
- You may not use the materials for any commercial purpose, including any purpose connected with the sale of goods or services;
- You may not make editorial changes to material you attribute to us; and
- You may not excerpt, juxtapose, or present attributed material in any way that is misleading as to our original editorial intent, or as to your relationship with us.
You may also copy or distribute CELDF Content that is not CELDF text materials if and only to the extent that the specific launching page from which that CELDF Content is accessible, and/or the CELDF Content itself, explicitly indicates that the CELDF Content may be distributed in a specified manner, subject to the same three limitations stated above.
All distributed copies, whether of text or non-text materials, must display the following copyright notice:
Copyright 2021 [or later] Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. Originally posted by CELDF at [complete address of source page].
