This document, like most on the site, will be "evolving" over time, as I find more time to work on it, and as I come up with more ideas. Members are requested to check back here on a regular basis, to prevent any "misunderstandings".
- No "Overt" Advertising
I don't want this site to become just another place where advertisers can post their "latest and greatest", but if someone has spent a great deal of time creating a creative store display (like the NHL logo in Coke ® boxes)... That would be fine.
- No Nudity, Obscenity, Racially or Sexually Offensive Material
This sounds pretty obvious, but it has to be said. If you wouldn't show it to your 10 year old niece, don't upload it here. Final judgement of the suitability of an image will remain with the Management.
- No "Doctored" Images
You are allowed and encouraged to highlight certain areas for clarity (such as a Picture in Picture showing the details of a hard-to-read sign, like the one I took of the "No Parking" parking lot). Members are also asked, where appropriate, to obscure house addresses, phone numbers or company names that have nothing to do with the content, but may be discourteous to the owners of the location where the image is shot. We will not be accepting images that are obviously fake, composite, or otherwise added to.
- No Swearing or Vulgar Language
I will tolerate no abusive language in public areas, picture descriptions, or comments. Offenders may be removed without warning, depending on the circumstances. Repeat offenders may have their IPs banned. Warning: It is possible that other ThingsIShot.com Members or users (including unauthorized users, or "hackers") may post or transmit offensive or obscene materials on ThingsIShot.com service and that you may be involuntarily exposed to such offensive and obscene materials. These materials will be removed as soon as we see them, but ThingsIShot.com takes no responsibility for your exposure to them. If there is any image that you find offensive, please Contact Us and let us know.
- Account Usage
Your membership on ThingsIShot.com is for your sole, personal use. You may not authorize others to use your membership, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity.
- Copyright Policy
Members are to make themselves aware of and abide by this site's Copyright Policy. It is this site's policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
- Photo Ownership
All photos will remain the property of the member uploading them (assuming they were their property to begin with), and can be removed at any time by the member uploading them. While the ThingsIShot management retains the right to do with them as it pleases while they are on the server, this does not give the member any rights to compensation or Royalty for their use.
