This privacy statement applies solely to the web pages centrally maintained by CPHS. Other pages that are linked to from the main CPHS links page may have a separate privacy policy, on their own websites.


Many of the photographs on this website were obtained from private families who have donated or given their permission for use by CPHS. Other images and text originate primarily from the Carluke and Lanark Gazette now owned by Johnston Press Ltd. 

Where images or documents are Courtesy SLL&CT Lanark Library we mean "Courtesy of South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture Trust - Libraries and Museums"  which is their full designation.  

In some cases, images of flyers, handbills and other ephemera may be copyright to individual jobbing printers to whom we are grateful for fair use here for historical purposes. Finally we have employed OCR scanning of certain books such as Rankins works or County Trade Journals and we again beg fair use for historical purposes from whomsoever now owns the original copyright.
Insofar as we are able we will attribute ownership to commercial companies with a "By Kind Permission of..." on such documents, where copyright ownership is known.
