Make Good Grow – Image Copyright Disclaimer

Please read and understand the below disclaimer before uploading images to this website.

By uploading and applying your Image (“Image”), you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your Image, including all the rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload, input or submit the Image, and to transfer all such rights to Make Good Grow. In addition to the warranty and representation set forth above, by uploading and posting an Image that contains images, photographs, pictures or that are otherwise graphical in whole or in part (“Images”), you warrant and represent that (a) you are the copyright owner of such Images, or that the copyright owner of such Images has granted you permission to use such Images or any content and/or images contained in such Images consistent with the manner and purpose of your use, and (b) that each person depicted in such Images, if any, has provided consent to the use of the Images, including, by way of example, the distribution, public display and reproduction of such Images. By posting Images, you are granting to all persons who have access to the Images, without compensation, permission to use your Images in connection with the use, including a non-exclusive, world-wide, royalty-free license to: copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate and reformat your Images without having your name attached to such Images, and the right to sublicense such rights to third parties.

Before you upload an image, make sure that the image falls into one of the following categories:

Own work: You own all rights to the image, usually meaning that you created it entirely yourself. Make Good Grow encourage users to upload their own images. Such images can include photographs which you yourself took. The legal rights for images generally lie with the photographer, not the subject.

Licensed: You can prove that the copyright holder has released the image under an acceptable license. Note that images that are licensed for use only on certain “channels”, or only for non-commercial or educational use, or under a license that doesn’t allow for the creation of modified/derived works, are unsuitable. When in doubt, do not upload copyrighted images.

Public domain: You can prove that the image is in the public domain, i.e. free of all copyrights.

Fair use: You believe that the image meets the special conditions for non-free content, which exceptionally allow the use of unlicensed material, and you can provide an explicit non-free use rationale explaining why and how you intend to use it.

You are responsible for the images you upload and their content. Any content uploaded that is illegal will be deleted alongside your user account, with appropriate action taken, which may include reporting you to the authorities.
