The images on this site are obtained from a variety of sources including other websites, forums and news groups as well as images submitted by users of the site. Our site serves as a convenient central repository for people
looking for this kind of images, rather than having to search through a large number of different sites.
These files are obtained in good faith and are believed to be freely distributable, however if you feel one or more of the images should not be presented here please get in touch to voice your concerns. If we receive a legitimate polite request we will aim to
remove the images within 24 hours, although delays could occur due to other time commitments.
However, before doing so please read the information below, especially the section on making a removal request:
We will remove your photos at your polite request and in good faith if you are:
The copyright holder
The subject of the photo
Authorised to represent one of the above
If instead of removal, you would prefer attribution, a backlink, or an adjustment of the title / descriptive text accompanying the image please feel free to make such a request. We will consider all reasonable requests.
However, if we receive an impolite, offensive or false demand for removal, or later find out that a previous demand was false then we will consider you to have acted in bad faith and will thus do the bare minimum required by law.
In many cases were are not legally obliged to remove images, but will still do so if asked in a polite way. Act to antagonise us and we will be less inclined to help you.
Think before you act
Before you blindly send mails to thousands of websites asking for your pictures, consider the following...
Streisand Effect - The more fuss you kick up, the more attention you bring to a subject... If you start complaining loudly about people distributing your pictures, chances are more people will do so, not less.
Fame - If your an aspiring celebrity or budding photographer, is it really in your interest to lock up your work where noone can see it? The more people who see your work, the greater your chances of success.
When making a removal request
When we receive requests adhering to the following principles we will aim to action them within 24 hours.
DO: Be polite and courteous
DO: Include your name, contact details and information on how you are connected to the images in question.
DO: Include the full URLs to the images in question.
DONT: Give contact details which don't state a country (address) or international dialing code (telephone), the world consists of more than one country and it is extremely ignorant to assume we are in the same one as you are.
DONT: Lie, do not claim to be the copyright holder if you aren't, don't make up sensationalist lies to try to illicit a faster response. If you are not the copyright holder but still have a legitimate connection to the images we will still consider removal, see above.
DONT: Send requests to addresses other than those listed below, if you do then chances are we won't see them and are thus unable to act upon them.
DONT: Be rude in your email, it just causes offense and discourages people from wanting to help you. Treat others the way you want to be treated yourself.
DONT: Shout in your mail (this means typing in all uppercase), it's rude and looks childish.
DONT: Make reference to irrelevant laws, images like those hosted on this site are illegal in many countries such as Iran, but as this site isnt hosted in such a country we don't have to comply with them. Same applies to US laws like the DMCA etc as the site isnt hosted there.
DONT: Make stupid demands, such as asking us to remove links from other websites or search engines.. We don't control these sites and have no ability to modify them.
DONT: Make threats - You might think it sounds tough to threaten someone with lawyers or to break their legs, but to anyone else you just look like a fool for wanting to waste money on lawyers rather than write a simple polite email.
DONT: Make ridiculous accusations... Such as accusing us of "Stealing". Stealing is when you take from someone and deprive them of the original. If you truly have lost your original copies of some pictures, feel free to
take new copies of them from us. Rest assured that when we copied the images originally, we didn't delete the originals.
If you make a polite request for removal we can action it immediately, if you make a formal legal request then we have to consult with our own lawyers which is likely to lengthen the process, and may not result in removal depending on the legal advice obtained.
