IMGsecure Image Hosting Terms & Conditions of Use
imgsecure.com Terms & Conditions, updated 4/14/2015.
IMGsecure Image Hosting provides a free image and photo hosting service. Users of this service may upload as many digital images as they wish and can then let others view the images by letting them know the URL of the image. Images that are marked "Public" will be visible on the home page and can be browsed on your image profile or on links to your gallery.
This is a free service so please don't abuse it. You are authorized to sign up for and use one account only. Any members suspected of creating more than one account may have their accounts deleted and all images removed at any time. Special permission may be obtained for creating multiple accounts. Keep in mind, in addition to watermarking your images, this site can be used to positively identify your images from someone else's images. There is rarely a benefit to having multiple accounts, and having the same image uploaded with differing watermarks can compromise the credibility (and therefore security) of the image in question.
All images are the copyright of their respective owners. You may not use any of the images on this site for any purpose without the permission of the copyright holder. You must own the copyright, or have permission from the copyright holder for any images you upload to this website. As a general rule, if you personally took a photograph, you are the legal copyright holder of that photograph. Same is true if someone else took the photograph, then you are not the legal copyright holder of that photograph.
