Galleries, collections etc which deny general permission to use images

Some of you know that last year I created a free space page listing galleries, collections etc with websites where many images can be used on WikiTree without seeking specific permission for each image: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Galleries_and_Collections_which_have_given_Permission_for_use_of_Images

Following recent exchanges between a WikiTree member and an organisation which has refused permission to use images, it was suggested that I create a companion page listing galleries, collections etc which explicitly deny permission for us to use images from their websites. I have now done this, and the page is at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Galleries%2C_Collections_etc_which_deny_general_permission_to_use_images_on_WikiTree. Currently the list is very short, but I am sure it will grow over time. If you know of sites which could sensibly be added, please tell me.

In particular, please give me details if you have sought general permission to use images from a website of a gallery, collection etc and been told that images should not be used on WikiTree.

Thanks!
