Hi Andre:
simply ask the people who run the Website. Yes, indeed "obtain permission".

In my experience most are very positive about 
getting featured in a scientific publication - I 
even had some deliver high resolution images of 
their site within hours. Another company featured 
my related research in their inhouse newsletter.
