Copyright and Trademark Protection
Blazon Search's text, layout, functionality, search engine, scripts and design, and other Blazon Search-specific content ("Blazon Search Materials") are property of Blazon Search and are protected by international copyright and trademark laws.
The current and future content of the Blazon Search database comes from public domain material, predating any possible copyright protected material.
Use of Materials
A subscription to an Individual Account grants you, as an individual, access to use Blazon Search on one computer at a time. It is reasonably expected that Account holders may share the Account with one or two direct family members on a home network through a single IP address. Beyond that, the expectation is that the Individual Account is used by you alone, and not shared with others, even if the Account is accessed from only one computer at a time. If your account is accessed from several different locations in a time frame that cannot logically be covered by one person, it is assumed that multiple persons are sharing the Account. Multiple computer access requires a Site Account. Violation of the terms of the Individual Account may lead to termination of the Account.
A subscription to a Site Account grants the holder access to use Blazon Search through a single primary IP address, regardless of the number of computers connected through that address. Additional IP addresses for the same account are available.
If you (or a legal entity you control) own and operate a website or engage in other Internet activity, such as electronic commerce, communication, publishing and transmission, and want to download, post, publish or use Blazon Search Materials for any such website or Internet activity, you need express written permission from Blazon Search, regardless if your website or Internet activity is free of charge or not. Unless you are a student, or your use of Blazon Search Materials is short-term and minimal, your use of Blazon Search Materials may be subject to copyright and other legal restrictions.
You are granted a limited, revocable, and non-exclusive right to create a hyperlink to the home page of Blazon Search so long as the link does not portray Blazon Search, its affiliates, or their products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive manner.
Any unauthorized use terminates the permission or license granted by Blazon Search.
Denial of Access, Use, or Service
Blazon Search reserves the right to deny access to, use of, or service from Blazon Search to any User, for any reason whatsoever, at its sole discretion.
Inclusion, Exclusion, Changes
Although Blazon Search recognizes that the validity of the data provided through Blazon Search depends on the accurate representation of the data from original work(s), it also understands that errors may have occurred during the conversion into digital format.
