If you download images from this website

you are required to agree to the conditions under which the Basel Mission makes them available.

  1. You must inform the Basel Mission archive before publishing any of these pictures and await confirmation of permission from Basel.
  2. Your publication must make it clear that the pictures are from the Basel Mission archive.
  3. We expect you to pay a user's fee.
    NB the Basel Mission is an NGO which concentrates on contemporary problems and programmes. The archivist is expected to raise as much money as possible from the services he provides. We think it is fair, if you are publishing our pictures, to expect you to pay a fee to offset the costs of maintaining this collection and this website.
