Beyond the credit lines that may be listed on the Site, the Company does not provide addresses, phone numbers, or other contact information for third party rights holders.

This provision does not apply to corporations that produce, package, prepare, or sell educational materials for teachers and other educators.

Unless otherwise noted on the Site, the Company requires no express permission for a limited educational exemption, but to conditions apply:
1. No modifications may be made as to the integrity or attribution of the Content; and
2. All copies of the Content must bear accurate identifying information, including proprietary collection information, credit lines, copyright (©), including relevant year if appropriate, and trademark notices (® or TM), and a citation of the Site: http://Nobelpeaceprizeconcert.org
