Re. Use of Images on this site.

Upicm.com grants the user the non-exclusive right do download any image, music or video file from this site when a download link is provided for the image or file. The user may use these artworks in their personal and commercial publications / websites / blogs without providing attribution to the author of the works or Upicm.com. The user may also use the artworks on their products without providing attribution. The user may not claim the images as their own creation as the authorship remains with the original creator. ALL IMAGES CAN BE SHARED MANIPULATED & DISTRIBUTED

Note: Defamation of character is an offence. When using images of recognisable people please be respectful. A simple rule of thumb when you're creating collages, adding text to images or relating articles to an image of a person or people, is to ask yourself if you would be happy depicted in this way. 

Upicm.com cannot be held responsible for actions taken in relation to your use of images downloaded from our site.

If unsure of  some or all terms please contact us and we'll be glad to help.
