Fontilles and leprosy in Spain

Selection criteria and terms of use of images

The photographs published on the Fontilles and leprosy in Spain portal were selected in accordance with the provisions of Ley Orgánica 3/2018 on the Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of rights and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data. In addition to the provisions of this regulation, all images where the identity of the people admitted to the sanatorium could be identified have been excluded from this portal. Nevertheless, images in which the sanatorium's medical and working staff, volunteers and visitors, or in which the Jesuits and sisters are recognisable have been included. The images contained in the gallery of maps, charts and plans were selected according to their representative value, not with the intention of being exhaustive. In the case of maps and graphs extracted from the books, care was taken into representing all the books containing these types of graphic representations, and the most characteristic were chosen. As far as plans are concerned, efforts were made to gather a representative sample of all the sanatorium's facilities. The use of the images included in this portal - photographs, illustrations from works and graphic material preserved in the Fontilles Archive - is restricted to teaching or research purposes: an indication must be made that they belong to the Fontilles Archive and Medical Library, to which reproduction or consultation requests of the rest of the archive may be addressed Enviar correo.
