Photo Licensing

ephotos was founded by photographers who believe in content ownership and attribution. The bottom line with uploading photos to ephotos is that those photos remain yours.

Proprietary Rights to Content on ephotos

ephotos does NOT claim ANY ownership rights in the text, files, images, photos, works of authorship, applications, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") that you post on or through the ephotos Services.

By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through the ephotos Services, you hereby grant to ephotos a non- exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, worldwide, limited license to use, modify, delete from, add to, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and translate such Content, including without limitation distributing part or all of the Site in any media formats through any media channels, except Content not shared publicly ("private") will not be distributed outside the ephotos Services.

Some of the ephotos Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that ephotos may place such advertising and promotions on the Services or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you.

You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on or through the ephotos Services or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section, (ii) the posting and use of your Content on or through the ephotos Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person, and (iii) the posting of your Content on the Site does not result in a breach of contract between you and a third party. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of Content you post on or through the ephotos Services.

Except as provided within this Agreement, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any Content appearing on or through the ephotos Services.

ephotos performs technical functions necessary to offer the ephotos Services, including but not limited to transcoding and/or reformatting Content to allow its use throughout the ephotos Services.

Although the Site and other ephotos Services are normally available, there will be occasions when the Site or other ephotos Services will be interrupted for scheduled maintenance or upgrades, for emergency repairs, or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of ephotos. Also, although ephotos will normally only delete Content that violates this Agreement, ephotos reserves the right to delete any Content for any reason, without prior notice.

ephotos encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, ephotos is not a backup service and will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content.
