We received this letter and the writer was gracious enough to let us use it on the site. Instead of showing all the wonderful things that following these terms bring to us, this letter shows what it can do for you. Please read this letter and carry it with you when ever you visit a graphics or music site.
PLEASE GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE!
These linkware graphics are free as long as you add a link back, for use on personal and non-profit home pages ONLY. Fees are required of all commercial pages. All that is required is CREDIT AND A LINK BACK TO THE MAIN PAGE OF THIS SITE, on the same page(s) you use my graphics on. By that, I mean EACH and EVERY page they are used on, not just a single link on a credits page 'somewhere' on your site, please! To do this, you may use the "Silverhawk's Creations" button provided, or write in a link crediting Sam Silverhawk for the graphics used.
WEBMASTERS OR BUILDERS OF COMMERCIAL SITES (pages that offer ANYthing for sale)
must first pay a commercial use fee of $40 BEFORE downloading anything from this site.
KINDLY DO NOT ALTER THESE GRAPHICS.
Except for adding text to certain blank buttons, making alterations of any kind to my graphics is strictly forbidden. By alterations, I mean NO re-sizing, cropping, compressing, cutting, filtering, re-coloring or tinting, and/or anything else that would change these graphics in ANY way! Please stick to using only the correct, original size dimensions in your html too. These graphics offered for use are 'finished' just as you see them on the pages of this graphics site, and are meant to be used just as they are now; they are not 'clip-art'. Please don't open them up in a graphics program, or use them as applets. If you wish to make any alterations to any of these graphics, please contact me BEFOREHAND, so that I can tell you "NO" once again.
PLEASE DO NOT LINK TO THE IMAGES ON THIS SERVER.
Right click and save the images to your own server. Linking directly to any images on my pages robs me of bandwidth. For more information on why it is so wrong to link to another person's server without permission, please visit Web Guard. For those of you on web tv, there are a number of good transponders available for you to upload graphics to your own directory. Here is a great transponder/html extractor, complete with instructions. Or, for even MORE information, go see my friend Larry, at Momp54's WebTV Workbench. Check them both out.
DO NOT RE-DISTRIBUTE THESE GRAPHICS.
Graphics from these pages may NOT be included in, or offered from, any
collection or other graphics sites, either online or in any other type of media.
And they are not to be used as e-mail decorations, please.
