Third Party Copyright
Many of the images on the World Wide Web are protected by copyright. Although Picsearch locates and displays links to these images, Picsearch does not hold, grant or imply permissions or licenses to use these images for any purpose. If you would like to use any images linked to from Picsearch you must contact the webmaster or copyright holder in order to obtain the appropriate permissions to do so.

Picsearch downloads original images only to create thumbnail images. Afterwards the original images are removed. Thus, users can only access thumbnails when searching for a specific image. Each thumbnail is accompanied by references to the original page that it was indexed from. This enables the users to visit the original page and obtain the appropriate permissions to use the image.

The crawling technology employed by Picsearch follows the robots exclusion standard and the robots meta tag. If you do not wish Picsearch to index your images please add 'psbot' to your robots.txt file in accordance with the The Robot Exclusion Standard. If you do not have access to the robots.txt file, Picsearch also obeys the robots meta tag. For more information click here.

Picsearch will promptly deal with your request and remove your site along with the thumbnail references.

If you hold the copyright of an image which Picsearch has indexed and wish to remove Picsearch's references to it, you can easily do so by clicking on 'Info' beneath the image in question, followed by 'Remove image'.

To avoid abuse of this service Picsearch requests that you please provide some additional information to verify that you are indeed the copyright holder of that particular image.
