The author of IFDF does not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of any of the information, contained on this website, nor the quality of any information or other materials displayed.

You hereby acknowledge that any reliance upon any Materials shall be at your sole risk. IFDF reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without any obligation, to make improvements to, or correct any error or omissions in any portion of the site.

If you find incorrect or inaccurate information, please let me know, and I will correct the information if needed. In case of an opinion you do not agree with, feedback is also appreciated, as long as constructive and using arguments. The intent of these pages is to be factual and informative.


When you quote part of these pages, use the images, or any materials found useful as a source of information for your own project, I would expect you to mention the source, just like you would do with a bibliographic reference. A style that is used with scientific publications would be fine with me.

For a non-Internet publication, this could look as follows:
BOURNEUF E., ebourneuf@geocities.com - Images de la Flore de France www.geocities.com/Rainforest/Canopy/9099/

When the reference is on-line, the reference can be linked to IFDF webmaster email address, and to the page-in-question or IFDF home page. The presence of these links is requested.

The HTML source code will look like this (cut and paste the following code):
<A HREF="mailto:ebourneuf@geocities.com">Eric BOURNEUF</A>

The image files that I have put on-line, are my property and the copyrights are also mine. This applies to the on-line reproductions as well as the original negatives and diapositives.

The images are available for free, BUT only for projects that are both non-commercial and low-budget. When you need an image for private use, or for a small non-commercial project you don't need to ask permission. I'm interested to know how my materials are used, but there is no obligation. In all other cases, I do insist on being informed, and you need my consent.

For use in commercial projects, and other projects that have a budget for salaries and services, I will ask a financial compensation. The price of the rights to an image will depend on roughly three factors: the quality of the image the degree of commerciality of your project, and the 'prominence' & quantity of the reproduction. This will be a one-time amount for publication on solid media, or a (often small) annual fee for publication on-line.

In any case I would like to receive a copy of the product, When you have a digitized version of your work, I'd like to receive that attached to email. When it is a web site, I would need the URL.
