HS Fair Use Policy

The following information is intended to be used as guidelines for the fair use of any and all Human Systems tools, including the Emotion Wheels, Needs Wheels, and Body Sensation Wheels in regular, Pocket, or virtual form; as well as Emotion and Needs Pamphlets (material and digital versions) and Animal Spirit Discovery Cards. Please contact Human Systems if you have any questions about this policy or need clarification.

Individual Personal Use: If you can afford it, please purchase material (if you live in the U.S. or Canada) or PDF copies of the Wheels or other tools from the Human Systems Shop. If you can’t afford it, you may use the ones online and/or print them out for personal use only. You may not print the Wheels or other tools and give them away or sell them; sharing the address from the Human Systems website to any Human Systems tool is always acceptable and appreciated.


Individual Professional Use: Please purchase material (if you live in the U.S. or Canada) or PDF copies of the Wheels and other tools from the Human Systems Shop for professional use with clients, patients, customers, students, or other service users. If your service users would like to have a Wheel or other tool for their personal use outside of sessions with you, please encourage them to purchase their own if they can afford it. If they can’t afford it, you may not make copies of the Wheels or other tools to give away or sell, but you can always direct them to the online versions, which are desktop and mobile-friendly. If you would like to make copies to distribute to clients, you can license the Wheels for various time periods. See licensing options.

Use in Groups and Facilities: If you are part of a group or facility, you may want multiple copies of the Wheels or other tools available for use. Please purchase the number of material (if you live in the U.S. or Canada) or PDF copies in the Human Systems Shop that you need for your facility. Please see licensing options for the most economical option if you want to make more than 35 copies.


Professional OR Online Projects & Services: If you’d like to use one or more of the Wheels in a professional project or service (one that will directly or indirectly bring in revenue), or online such that the Wheel or other tool image would be available on the internet, I offer licensing options, depending on the nature of the project. Providing the Human Systems web address of the Wheels in print or hyperlink form in any professional or online project is always acceptable and appreciated.

Non-professional projects: If you’d like to use one or more images of the Wheels or other tools in a non-professional project, such as a project for a class you’re taking or for your personal use, please contact me for permission and further guidance on fair use. Providing the Human Systems web address of the Wheels or other tools in print or hyperlink form in any professional or online project is always acceptable and appreciated.
