2. copyright ownership

By uploading an image to NFS you guarantee that you are the legal owner of the copyright of that image, or have been awarded full and unrestricted rights from the copyright owner to upload and utilize the image for the purposes of this website.

3. third party rights

By uploading an image you guarantee that such use of the image in the NFS website does not violate the rights of any other party, does not result in a breach of contract between you and another party and that you accept responsibility for any royalties or fees due to any other party from the use of the uploaded image.

4. people seen in photos

By uploading an image you guarantee that any people clearly identifiable in the image have consented to have their image displayed, or that you have full rights to display the image in this manner and accept full responsibility for such use.

5. accepting and rejecting images

All images uploaded to this site will be assessed by an Editor of NFS for suitability. This Editor will either reject or accept each image for posting to the site. Images that are rejected will be deleted from the website entirely, with no copies remaining in the NFS system. The decisions of the Editor are irrevocable.

6. responsibility for content

When uploading an image you are solely responsible for their content and for any offence, claims or damages that arise from the content of those images. The approval and posting of images to the site by an Editor of the NFS in no way alters or diminishes your responsibility and does not transfer any responsibility for the content of the image to the NFS or the Editor who approves the image for posting.

7. rights granted to NFS

NFS does not claim any copyright or any kind of ownership rights to the images you upload to the website. However, by uploading an image to the website you thereby grant to the NFS full rights to publically display, copy, reproduce and distribute the image globally on its website or any associated website in perpetuity.

NFS guarantees that it will not create any derivative work from your images nor modify the content without your consent, though it reserves the right to crop images or to make adjustments to the brightness, exposure, colours or general appearance of any image that it believes warrants such adjustment for the purpose of better display.

9. no commercial sales or use of images

NFS will use images that you upload to its site only for the purposes of this website and will not utilize nor will it authorize others to utilize such images for other purposes including sale, commercial exploitation or for other forms of financial gain without your consent.
