Copyright and re-use of information

Harlow Council holds the copyright in its published information. You are free to use any information supplied for non-commercial research or private study purposes. The information may also be used for the purposes of news reporting providing that no changes are made to it and the material must be acknowledged as Harlow Council’s copyright and you must give the title of the source document/publication.

However, any other type of re-use, for example, publishing the information in analogue or digital form, including on the internet, or for commercial gain requires the permission of the copyright holder.  Where Harlow Council holds the copyright in its published information, the information (except logos and photographs) may be copied, reproduced, used and/or re-used subject to your acceptance of the Open Government Licence for public sector information. This allows use and re-use of information freely and flexibly with only a few conditions. For example:

  • you must acknowledge the source of the information;
  • you must ensure that you do not use the information in a way that suggests any official status or that Harlow Council endorses you or your use of the information; and
  • you must ensure that you do not mislead others or misrepresent the information or its source.

By using and/or re-using information in which the Council holds the copyright, you accept the terms and conditions of the Open Government Licence.

The Open Government Licence does not cover the use of information in which Harlow Council does not hold the copyright. Where Harlow Council does not hold the copyright in information we publish, we will make this clear. Where there is any third party copyright information, you will need to obtain permission from the copyright holders. For information about obtaining permission from a third party, see the Intellectual Property Office’s website
