Both parties acknowledge that from time to time You may upload photographs or graphics to the Website, and freeimages will screen these uploads to see if they are suitable for distribution. The policies behind this procedure are described in the Upload rules section of the Help. You authorize freeimages to be your non-exclusive agent that licenses Images FOR FREE to third parties. You authorize freeimages to market and sublicense the right to copy, reproduce, modify and use your Images on such terms as may be determined by Freeimages. Freeimages agrees that it shall not license your content for uses that are defamatory, pornographic or otherwise illegal. Freeimages agrees not to sell these Images under any circumstances and not to distribute them outside the Website. You acknowledge that under no circumstances can you demand money from freeimages or those using the Images for the use of said Images. You may ask payment for a higher resolution version of an Image but only if it's not stored on the Website. You also acknowledge that the Images may be used for promotional purposes for the Website or your gallery on freeimages. Furthermore, You acknowledge that freeimages does not allow the upload of Images that infringe on any copyright, property right, trademark or any other applicable right.

You represent and warrant that you have obtained a valid and binding model release from all required parties in substantially the same form as [model release] that will permit the uses for such Images contemplated in this Agreement and that you will keep the original release and provide a copy to freeimages if requested. You also warrant that where required by applicable law, you have also obtained a valid and binding release in substantially the same form as [property release] relating to identifiable property contained in the Images that might sensibly lead to the identity of or be required by the owner of such property. You acknowledge that even though We do our best to prevent it from happening, freeimages cannot be held responsible for the misuse or abuse of any Image. We also reserve the right to remove any approved Image at any time if we believe it is defective, of poor quality or infringe on any right. Serious copyright infringement issues such as uploading Images found on other stock photography sites result in the termination of this Agreement, the termination of your membership, and all other available remedies.

You acknowledge that because of copyright infringement or other kinds of serious - or even malicious - acts, you may face more serious consequences.
