Non-commercial use of materials on the internet or in any other networked or electronic form (including audio CDs, CD-ROMs, DVDs etc) requires explicit written permission from myself prior to such use. Requests may be refused at my discretion, and will certainly be refused if I consider the use to be derogatory. Requests for permission should be made by email in the first instance; the address is at the bottom of this page.
Commercial use of any kind and of any part of this website is strictly prohibited without prior written consent from myself. Permission for any other type of use must also be obtained.
