BY ACCESSING THIS WEBSITE AND PURCHASING ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE FULLY AWARE THAT YOU ARE PURCHASING THE PRODUCT(S) FOR PRIVATE ENTERTAINMENT, EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC and ARTISTIC PURPOSES ONLY.

For Private Entertainment, Educational, Scientific and Artistic Purposes. These images MAY NOT necessarily represent the actions or situations of the person(s) depicted here. Parody For Amusement Only.

1. CELEB-PHOTOS!

At Celeb-Photos! aka Celeb-Photos.com. We offer you a unique way to download photos and illustrations of some of your favorite celebrities, the way you’ll like to see them. ALL the images on our website are available for Personal Private Use Only or Educational Use.

2. MODEL AND PROPERTY RELEASES

Where a photograph or illustration contains a recognizable image of a real person then that person signs a ‘model release’ to authorize the sale of the image for commercial use. Where we indicate ‘Model release on file’ for an image this means that we have a model release for that image on file, in most cases, the releases were acquired by photographers through whom we obtained the images, and included in the purchase agreement.

Other subjects may also require a release, called a ‘property release’, to authorise the selling of their image. Subjects which require a property release can include some buildings, brands, designs and works of art. Where the creator has provided us with a property release for the image this is indicated by ‘Property release on file’.

3. EDITORIAL IMAGES

Editorial images may only be used for non-commercial and non-promotional purposes. This means that the images may not be used for any purpose which will result in you making money.

Editorial images may be used to illustrate truthful articles in printed or electronic media such as websites, magazines, newsletters, books, broadcasts and newspapers.

Editorial images may not be used in advertising, advertorials, commercial brochures, commercial websites or product packaging.

4. STANDARD LICENCE

When you download a free or purchased image from Celeb-Photos.com you automatically receive our Standard Licence which allows you to use the image as an illustration for almost any business, personal, educational or charitable purpose. The image is yours to use anywhere in the world as many times as you need and for as long as you want.

If you choose to download an image free of charge you need to publish an acknowledgement to Celeb-Photos and the creator of that image wherever it’s used. This is how:

4.1. Free image downloads

4.2. No watermark

Our image downloads are watermark-free. They are clear, sharp and ready for use. (We reserve the right to discontinue this Free offering at any time).

4.3. ‘Attribution required’

If you use this free image, you must publish an acknowledgement to Celeb-Photos.com and/or the image creator, as applicable, on the same page or screen where the image is used.

If you are unwilling or unable to publish an acknowledgement, you must purchase the image, to avoid this requirement.

4.4. Publishing an acknowledgement

Purchasing good quality images can be expensive, and you can’t always justify the cost, so we give you a small version of all our images free of charge.

All we ask in return is that you publish an acknowledgement (or ‘attribution’) when you use the image so that you acknowledge who created the image and where it came from.

We understand that this isn’t always possible, so if you are unable (or prefer not) to publish an acknowledgement all our images are available to purchase, starting at $7.00. If you purchase an image then you don’t need to publish an acknowledgement.

4.5. How to word the acknowledgement

When publishing an acknowledgement you must include both the name of the artist who created the image, when applicable and/or “Celeb-Photos.com”. The name of the image creator can be found at the top of the download page, if applicable and will be included in your download confirmation email, when available. We suggest that you use a format like this: Image courtesy of [name of the image creator] at Celeb-Photos.com OR Image courtesy of Celeb-Photos.com

If you are logged in to your account then any images you download will be automatically recorded so you can access the details for your acknowledgement at any time.

4.6. Where to put the acknowledgement

Where you place the acknowledgement will vary according to the way you are using the image. Here are some common examples of how our images are used and where the acknowledgement should be positioned for each one:

The acknowledgement should be published somewhere on the page that each free image appears on. Where the same image is used on multiple pages (for example if you use it as a background or banner on multiple pages) please publish the acknowledgement just once, for example on an ‘about’ page.

Facebook (eg profile pictures, cover pictures, status updates)

Include the acknowledgement in a status update, or in the text accompanying an uploaded image.

Twitter (eg profile pictures, background pictures)
