Guideline for Visits
While ABC is not responsible for the content of the submissions, ABC reserves the right to delete, move or edit submissions that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene or in violation of copyright or trademark laws or otherwise unacceptable. ABC may request confirmation of the copyright or trademark ownership from the submitter. ABC reserves the right to suspend the shipping of an order before such confirmation is received. If ABC does not receive any such confirmation or if there are continued claims of copyright or trademark infringement, ABC reserves the right to share certain account information with governmental organizations or other third parties. If you dispute any copyright or trademark infringement claims, we will share with you the contact information of any party claiming any such infringement. In the event of any such dispute, ABC reserves the right to suspend the display, viewing or sharing of any submissions until the issue has been resolved to ABC's complete satisfaction. Each Member acknowledges that any submission may be removed, published, copied, modified, transmitted and displayed by ABC for the purposes of delivering the Service. In addition, each Member warrants that all moral rights in any uploaded materials have been waived.

Members' physical or electronic sharing of images constitutes permission for reprinting by the recipient.

ABC will not be liable for the content of any submission.

Copyright Notice
ABC is committed to protecting photographers' copyrights. Each image submitted is required by U.S. law to own the right to, or to obtain permission to use, any image before the image is uploaded or printed at ABC.

Member Access
Your account with ABC is available for your personal, non-commercial use. Any unauthorized use may result in termination of your Member Service with ABC. However, you may invite other people ("Invitees") to view selected images in your account through the ABC Digital PhotoCenter's share feature. The Invitees will be able to see the images you have selected for them but will not have access to your entire account.

Linking directly to images on ABC's servers from external sites is expressly prohibited.

ABC reserves the right to close a Member's account(s) and terminate a Member's Service if in ABC's sole determination such account was set up for fraudulent purposes or under false pretenses.

To maintain our Service to you as a Member and develop new and useful features and services for the future;

To satisfy requirements of either a court order, subpoena, complaint or a lawful request from governmental authorities.

Storage Policy
ABC provides free online storage of images for its Members for a period of 12 months from the date of the upload of an image to a Member’s Account.

Third-Party Software
In providing you with your Membership Service, ABC may make software from third-party companies available to you. However, to download and utilize this software, Members must first agree to the respective software licenses and/or warranties required by such third parties. Each software product is subject to the individual company's terms and conditions, and the agreement will be between you and the respective company, as well as part of the Terms of ABC's Services.

Accordingly, ABC does not guarantee that any software you download will be free of any contaminating or destructive code, such as viruses, worms or trojan horses. As such, ABC does not offer any warranty on any third-party software you download from ABC; and your sole remedy shall be against such third-party provider.

Third-Party Links
In addition to third-party software ABC may also provide links to third-party sites that may be of some interest to you. However, once again, ABC does not have control over the content or availability of the contents of these sites. It is your responsibility to become familiar with each site's privacy and other policies and terms of service, and to contact that site's webmaster or site administrator with any concerns or requests. Accordingly, although this permission is part of the Terms of ABC's Services, Members' sole remedy shall be against such third-party site, and not to ABC.
