IFT Badge 80IFT Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy

Indiana Fire Trucks respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our visitors to do the same. Please review the policies below and contact us should you have any questions or require clarificiation.

Our Photographs
You may have noticed that, with few exceptions, IFT does not disable the ability to "right-click" the photos on our website. However, all photos published on this site are the property of the individual photographers. Use of these photos without specific written authorization from Indiana Fire Trucks is illegal and not permitted. If you would like to use our photos for anything beyond your personal collection, please purchase our photos and see our policies below.

Through the years we have had numerous requests to use our photographs for individual fire department websites. In good faith to those departments who allowed us to take photos and made apparatus available to us, this permission is usually granted when we are contacted directly. We do request that a link to our website be posted on the department site. This can be done on your apparatus photo page (Example: "Photos courtesy of www.IndianaFireTrucks.com" ) and/or on a links page. This should always be done so that our photographers fairly receive due credit for their work.

If you are an individual, news-related website or other commercial company seeking permission to use or publish photos, graphics or other features from Indiana Fire Trucks, please contact us directly.

Photos for Sale
