How long are my images being hosted?

We host your images as long as you need them. If your image has not been viewed for over 3 months we assume you do not need it anymore and delete it from our server. If you want to have full control about whether and when your images get deleted, sign up.

Why do you need my email address? Will you send me SPAM?

When you sign up we send a confirmation link to your email address to activate your account. That way if you ever forget your password, you can easily request a new one. We will not give your email address to anyone else or send you periodical newsletters or the like. We hate SPAM too.
