Photo and Video Credits (English)

Preamble

This site is independently managed and is not affiliated in any way with the Society of Jesus, the Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola, its parish, or the Diocese of Rome. For official information, please refer directly to the official sources of the Diocese of Rome or the Jesuits.

This website (hereinafter also referred to as “the Site”) is owned by Sagacious Wonderer e.K. (hereinafter also referred to as “S.W.e.K.”), who is responsible for its publication, management, and updates.

The Site, including all contents, is freely accessible to any individual or entity (hereinafter also referred to as “Visitor” or “Visitors”) who browses its web pages, subscribes to the newsletter, or receives emails from the Site. However, usage is contingent upon full and unconditional agreement with Terms and Conditions of use.

These premises are an integral part of the following statement on Photo Credits.

 

Photo and Image Credits

All photos, images, and videos on this Site have been selected with full respect for their copyrights.

Most of the photographs on this site were taken on location by the author. Others are in the public domain or released under Creative Commons licenses, and are redistributed under the terms of those licenses. When photos by others are used, the author and the distribution license are always indicated. If no indication is present, then the photos were taken by the author of the article.

When not directly owned by the author, in most cases the photographs were obtained from free image collections without the need for attribution from sites such as pixabay.com and pexels.com (these sites are mentioned for illustrative purposes and not exhaustively).

S.W.e.K. disclaims any responsibility in the event that the authors of the photographs modify the terms of use of the image after its publication on the Site.

Even when attribution is not requested, where possible and if the format allows, the author’s name and the link to the original photo or the author’s page are always tried to be included.

This Site may feature images created using artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. These images are generated in compliance with current copyright regulations and are used in accordance with applicable laws.

Nevertheless, S.W.e.K. does not claim exclusive ownership of such AI images, unless otherwise indicated. Where required, appropriate attribution for AI images will be given.

S.W.e.K. disclaims any responsibility for the use and distribution of AI images created by third parties.

If a rights holder identifies unauthorized or undesired use of an image on the Site, they can report it to info@swek.com.de for immediate removal.

 

Video Credits

Videos embedded in this Site can be third-party videos present on platforms like YouTube, so it is assumed that these third parties have regularly observed the copyright of the video itself. In any case, S.W.e.K. excludes any responsibility in this regard, and refers such responsibility to the third parties who have published the video.

In some cases, instead of embedding the video in the body of the article, a simple preview image of the video player and the video cover, or a significant frame of the video, is used, connected to a link to the original video on the platform on which it is distributed by the publisher (for example, YouTube). This choice is made to improve the user experience on the site: this way, the page load time is reduced, facilitating viewing on mobile devices. This also reduces the number of third-party cookies, helping to preserve the privacy of the Site’s Visitors: this practice aims to limit the amount of information tracked by third parties, ensuring a safer online environment and respecting the privacy of the Site’s Visitors.

S.W.e.K. disclaims any responsibility related to links directing to videos or images on external sites, referring the respective responsibility to those who have published these images or videos on these external sites.

In the event that the holder of the rights to the video identifies improper or unwanted use, he or she is invited to report it directly via email to S.W.e.K. at info@swek.com.de and the video in question will be immediately removed.
