NTG Image Library Terms and Conditions


This is a legal agreement between you ("you") and the Northern Territory Government (NTG). You should read this Agreement in its entirety before you download any digital asset appearing on this website ("Asset"). The Northern Territory Government (NTG) warrants that it has the permission of the copyright owners of the Asset to enter into this agreement with you.

The Northern Territory Government respects Indigenous cultures and has attempted to ensure no material has been included on our Asset Library that is offensive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Each user waives and releases the Northern Territory Government to the full extent permitted by law from any and all claims relating to the usage of material or information made available through the system.

Subject to any terms implied by law which cannot be excluded, in no event shall the Northern Territory Government be liable for any losses or damages, including incidental or consequential damages, resulting from use of the material.

While care has been taken to ensure that information contained in Northern Territory Government systems and publications is true and correct at the time of publication, changes in circumstances after the time of publication may impact on the accuracy of this information. The Northern Territory Government gives no warranty or assurance, and makes no representation as to the accuracy of any information or advice contained, or that it is suitable for your intended use.

In addition to locally sourced information, the Northern Territory Government Image Library may include external asset sources. These external sources are outside of our control. It is the responsibility of users to make their own decisions about the accuracy, currency, reliability and correctness of the Assets found.

It is the responsibility of all users to utilise the Image Library and its Assets in accordance with the conditions set out in their employment contract, in accordance with NTG brand guidelines, documented image library business rules, NTG image usage policies and any details/restrictions set out in talent release forms.

Copies of NTG policies and brand guidelines may be obtained by emailing communications.dcm@nt.gov.au

Assets may only be used for official NTG communications, unless prior permission has expressly been granted by an authorised employee of the NT Government.
