The Aussie Stars website is part of my business as a data researcher, collector and distributor. This website
provides information to the public for entertainment, research and study purposes. Free use of this website is allowed upon
the following conditions.
Because this website contributes to my livelihood it is necessary for me to protect my business interests. Unless otherwise
stated, I, Simon Astley Scholfield retain ownership of all right, title and interest in all copyrights in all documents,
articles, text, images, data, interactive media, and software on the Aussie Stars site.
The brand name "Aussie Stars" and all associated logos are trademarks of Simon Astley Scholfield and the
Aussie Stars site.
Prior to coining and trademarking the Aussie Stars brand I conducted comprehensive research and found no previous
use of these words, terms and logos in other works and media. I hold intellectual copyright on 'Aussie Stars,' and
this brand name must not be used in any media or production about Australian people, issues or events, or about
Astrology or Astronomy, or associated themes.
The Astrology Charts on this site have been made using the Solar Fire software. These charts, their colour schemes
and other features designed by me are trademarks of the Aussie Stars site.
Please do not use my trademarks. If you want a trademark for your business or whatever, conduct your own research and come
up with your own words, terms and designs.
This Website contains astrological data (also known as "astro-data") -- meaning the dates, places and times of birth
and death of various people, and dates, places and times of other events -- that have been selected from my research collection,
The Scholfield Historical Event Database™ (The SHED™).
I have spent thousands of dollars and many years researching and purchasing birth certificates, searching through bookshops,
rolling microfilm in libraries, and scanning electronic databases, and interviewing people, etc, in order to compile
The SHED™ so that people have accurate data and reliable Astrology charts for their study and entertainment. I hold
copyright on this information, including astro-data used here at Aussie Stars, meaning that conditions are placed on how,
what part of, and where my data may be republished or redistributed.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LINK TO MY WEBPAGES
If you intend to publish my data please ask yourself first if it is necessary to do so. For example, if you want to mention
or discuss Eamon Sullivan's chart in your blog or on your website then I suggest that you simply write something like "Eamon
Sullivan has Scorpio Rising according to Sy Scholfield's chart for him at www.aussie-stars.com (including hyperlinks like the ones I've provided). I encourage you to link to webpages on the Aussie Stars website
in this way, rather than republishing information such as Sullivan's time of birth which is part of the copyrighted information
in my collection.
'FAIR USE' OF DATA
Individuals are permitted to electronically copy material published on this site and to make print-outs thereof, solely
for their personal information, provided that the copyright notice and my name beside it appear thereon and provided
that the materials are not modified.
Also, any individual may use up to five data from The SHED™ for non-commercial purposes as long as they are
accompanied by a full citation clearly acknowledging Simon Astley Scholfield (or Sy Scholfield) as the collector, along with
the www.aussie-stars.com or www.the-shed.info URL or that of the Webpage from which the data is taken. However, no more than five data may be republished in any particular
work, be that a book, website, etc, so if five of my data already appear in that work then you may not add more. This is considered
fair use. Written permission is required before anyone may republish more than five data, and the granting of such permission
will be at the discretion of the owner.
The owner wishes to acknowledge Astrological data collectors who have granted him permission to add their data to his collection.
The name of any such collector should appear below the relevant chart. Any visitor to this Website should contact the collector
of such data for their permission before republishing their data, because such data is not only held under copyright protection
by Simon Astley Scholfield but also by the copyright of the original collector.

(www.wikipedia.org) on condition that the citation ackowledges me by name as the collector of the information and includes a hyperlink to the
relevant page plus the URL for that page. The service is offered to compilers and readers of Wikipedia articles who would
like accurate information about when and where people were born, etc. But please note that times of birth or times
of other events published on Aussie Stars may not be republished on Wikipedia.
The owner of this Web site wishes to respect the privacy of living persons. It is understood that although birth and death
data for people from certain countries (for example, the United Kingdom and New Zealand) and certain states (for example,
California and Massachusetts) are public information, generally information such as the date, year and place of birth of individuals

been granted to publish the information. This does not apply to the time of birth of an individual (which is not identifying
