ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
We work hard to do our Web site, and we value our work. It is copyrighted, and you may not use our hard work without receiving permission first. If you decide to use it publicly first and ask forgiveness later, our fee is US$1,500 per use of each file, part of a file, image, or part of image, whether the image is altered or not, for each year or part of a year that the file or image is publicly displayed, in whole or in part. Altered images are derivative works; the same fee applies. Removal of our copyright notice may constitute a federal crime under United States laws.
We grant permission for personal use of our information, and we grant permission to make one copy of any of our photographs for personal use. "Personal use" means that you do not re-publish the information or photograph; you may not use our photographs on your own Web site without our permission, but you may use one for your screen saver or other non-public use.
You may not copy, reproduce, or redistribute our work for any reason other than personal use. If you wish to use any of our work for any public display or performance (for example, a school report or an image for your Web site), you may request permission by email using our form. Please state the reasons for the request for permission and the use to which the information is to be put. We generally grant permission without charge for educational uses, but we never consent to the use of our works on sites which consider themselves "adult."
Some of our images are stored on other services, such as Smugmug, Vimeo, and Youtube. This is solely a matter of convenience for us. The same copyright rules apply; you may buy prints of the photographs, but they are for personal enjoyment only and may not be shown publicly.
We do not keep track of any visitors. We do not monitor or track your viewing of our Web pages in any way. Look at the naturist pages all you want, secure in the comfort that we will never know.

The Civilized Explorer provides links to hundreds of sites; we do not have any control over the content of any of those sites. We found once that a link to a site which formerly validated HTML markup had become an "adult" site, much to the chagrin of the validation people. We make no representations as to the accuracy of any information in those links; we do not even represent that the links are still current.
Our information was current at the time it was written; see the Table of Contents for the years. Things change rapidly in the tourist area, especially in the French West Indies. The rates of exchange vary considerably, and the restaurants where we have eaten are sometimes closed, sold, destroyed in tropical storms, or just disappear. While we are sorry if our experience was wonderful and yours was miserable, we can only report our own experiences. The older our information, the more likely it is to be wrong.
