vHMML Privacy Policy


We will not share your name, email, mailing address, or other particulars with anyone outside of HMML except under these conditions:
  • If we have evidence that you have violated the terms of use by copying or redistributing images without permission, we will contact you by email about the problem, and if it is not resolved, we will provide your contact details to the owning institution so that they can communicate directly with you if they wish to do so.
  • A few of the libraries have the contractual right to ask who has consulted their collections. Upon their request we will provide them with the names of those who have viewed their manuscripts. We will not supply them with any other personal information.

In reports to funders, we will provide generic information about where our users come from and which resources have been used. This information will be presented in a way that does not reveal the identity or details of any individual user.

For questions, or if you want clarification on this privacy policy, please feel free to contact us.
