In particular, you are not permitted to meta-search Megaor site's properties or send automated queries of any kind to Megaor site's properties without an agreement with Megaor's site owner to do so.
This web site may contain links to third party web sites. These linked sites are not under the control of Megaor's site owner. Megaor's site owner does not assume any responsibility or liability for the contents of these linked sites, or any subsequent links to additional sites from a web-site containing hyper links. Megaor's site owner includes these links as a convenience for site users. The inclusion of a link does not imply any association, partnership, affiliation or endorsement of any kind. Megaor's site owner takes reasonable efforts to limit the inclusion of offensive content on the Megaor web site; However, links to third party sites may or may not provide access to sites with offensive content. You use the links provided on Megaor site or any linked site at your own risk.

Non-commerical Web usage
If you have a personal home page or non-commercial web service, please feel free to link to my web pages. Acceptable HTML is: <a href="http://www.megaor.com/">Megaor Photography</a> . That way people know who wrote the text, took the photographs and also can find my on-line copyright statement. You do not need to pay for linking to the Megaor site or ask for permission to do so.
Commercial Web usage
Commercial web use of text or images from this site is prohibited!
Note: most of the pictures of people on my pages are not model-released. Advertising usage of photos (e.g., brochures, catalogs, print ads) is very different from editorial usage of photos (e.g., newspaper and magazine articles, books). You can not use pictures in advertising (e.g., an on-line product brochure or anything else that is selling something) without getting a model release from any person whose image is recognizable in the photo. You might also have problems if an image contains a recognizable commercial (i.e., not owned by a government) physical property, e.g., Disneyland. One of the reasons advertisers pay $1000+ for images from stock agencies is those agencies have already gotten the relevant releases.
Third Party Copyright
Many of the images on the World Wide Web are protected by copyright. Although Megaor site locates and displays links to these images, Megaor site 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 Megaor site you must contact the webmaster or copyright holder in order to obtain the appropriate permissions to do so.
If you hold the copyright of an image which this site displays and wish to remove the picture and the references to it, you can easily do so by clicking on 'Contact Me' link on the 'About' page and report the image name or url, followed by 'Remove Copyrighted Image'. I will promptly deal with your request. To avoid abuse of this service please provide some additional information to verify that you are indeed the copyright holder of that particular image.
The material that appears on this site is for informational and entrtainment purposes only. Despite my efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before you act on information you've found on my site, you should confirm any facts that are important to your decision. Megaor site and I are not responsible for, and can not guarantee the performance of, goods and services provided by my advertisers, by others to whose sites I link, or users who post a classified, a comment or an auction item.
Public Posting Area
Megaor encourages an open exchange of information and ideas, but Megaor's owner can not and do not review postings made in the public posting areas before they are posted. Anybody may obtain the right to post on Megaor site, and while I am taking measures to deny access to people who have posted objectionable material in the past, these measures are quite easily circumvented by any person intent on posting objectionable material. You may well read or view any given posting or photo before I do. You may see material that is defamatory, abusive, obscene, offensive, threatening, illegal, or inappropriate for children, before I have seen it and have had the opportunity to remove it. For this reason, if you are a parent, you should carefully monitor your children's access to the site. If you do encounter material that you believe falls into one of these categories, I urge you to report it to me so that I may remove it. But I may not be able to remove it as promptly as you think I should. You can expect the site to include information and opinions from a variety of individuals and organizations other than Megaor. It is easy for people to pose as experts in the public posting areas without having any expertise whatsoever. I do not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of any posting, regardless of whether the posting comes from a user, from a celebrity or "expert" guest. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment.
Responsibility for what is posted in the comments, photo galleries and other public posting areas on this site lies with each user - you alone are responsible for material you post. You agree not to post or transmit any defamatory, abusive, obscene, threatening or illegal material, or any other material that infringes on the ability of others to enjoy the site or that infringes on the rights of others. You agree to conform to Site polices and guidelines concerning the size, length, format, subject, content, or relevancy of the materials you submit.
Although I can not monitor all the postings in the comments, photo galleries and other public areas, I reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any postings that come to my attention that I consider unacceptable or inappropriate, of for any other other reasons, which I need not disclose, and which need not be reasonable. I will not, in the ordinary course of business, review private electronic messages that are not addressed to Megaor site. However, I will comply with the requirements of the law regarding disclosure of such messages to others, including law enforcement agencies.
I retain the right to deny access to anyone who I believe has violated the term of this agreement, or to anyone else for any reasons, which I need not disclose, or for no reason.
Intellectual Property Rights
You will not use the site to violate anyone's copyright, trademark, intellectual property rights, or privacy rights. The content which you submit must be your work in its entirety. You may not submit content which is an amalgam of the works of several persons, even if you are among those persons, even if you are the principal creator, or even if the other authors have given you permission to use their work as part of the collective work. By submitting material to Megaor site, you are representing that you are the sole author of the content in its entirety, that you have the right to submit the material, and in the case of photos that you have obtained any model releases that may be required.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may include brief quotations and thumbnail images in your submissions that are permitted under the copyright laws as "fair use", provided you correctly attribute these to their authors. Furthermore, when commenting on photos in the photo gallery, you may include a version of the photo under discussion in your comment, altered or marked up to illustrate your comments. By uploading photos to the photo gallery, you grant to other Megaor's visitors permission to copy the photo, to make such alterations and markups for the purpose of commentary as they see fit, and to attach the modified photo to their comments on the photo.
Submitting material that is the property of another, without the consent of its owner, is not only a violation of this agreement, but may also subject you to legal liability for infringement of copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights.
If material in which you hold intellectual property rights, which infringes your privacy, or which is defammatory is unlawfully submitted to us by a third party, please inform me immediately and I will remove it. Notifications concerning copyright infringements should be sent to a DMCA agent. To gain time, you may also send email to us through the 'Contact Me' link on the 'About' page on this web site; however, this is not a reliable form of communication and I may not read your email message.
Ownership of Submitted Material
Submission of material to any page, image critique areas, or photo sharing systems does not transfer the copyright to that material to me. However, by submitting the material, you grant me a perpetual non-exclusive world-wide royalty-free license to publish that material on the World Wide Web as part of the Megaor web site for the purpose of operating, displaying, distributing and promoting the site. I will not use your materials without attributing them to you. If you object to any modification by me of your materials (except for minor edits or resizing), or, in the case of comments posting on photos, or comment on the site's static content, to the use of your materials separate from their original context, I will either restore the original text and context, or delete the materials.
You also grant to Megaor visitors the right to make a temporary copy of your material in the course of viewing or reading it with a standard web browser. I may grant permission to third parties, such as operators of search engines or Internet archiving sites, to make copies of the content of Megaor site from time to time, and by submitting material to the site, you grant permission for such usage.
You agree not to use the site to advertise products or services or to solicit anyone to buy or sell products or services, or to make donations of any kind, without my express written approval.

You agree not to reproduce or distribute, or cause to be reproduced or distributed, any material that you retrieved from the site, without the express prior permission of both Megaor and, in the case of copyrighted materials, the copyright owner, except for such reproduction as occurs in the normal course of reading or viewing the materials using a web browser. Requests for permission to reproduce or distribute materials retrieved from the the site should be sent both to Megaor and the original author of those materials. You acknowledge that Megaor and the copyright holders will be significantly damaged by your violation of this section in a manner that would require immediate injunctive relief. You are not relieved of your duties under this section because material was posted anonymously or under a pseudonym, because you can not locate the copyright holder, because the materials are in the public domain, because the materials are available on any other web site or in some other form, or because you have the permission of either the copyright holder or Megaor's owner, but not both.
Robots, Spiders, Offline Readers, etc
This site is provided for your personal use. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation "robots", "spiders", "offline readers", etc, that accesses the site in a manner which sends more request messages to the Megaor server in any given period of time than a typical human would normally produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line Web browser to read, view, and submit materials.
Teachers and Search Engines
Notwithstanding other terms of this agreement, I grant the right to teachers to print out pages from Megaor for distribution to students, provided that attribution is given to the URL on Megaor where the material originated. We also grant the operators of search engines permission to use robots to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly-available searchable indexes of the materials, but not caches or archives of the materials. We reserve the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.
Links To Third Party Sites
The Site contains links to third party web sites ("Third Party Sites"). Because Megaor has no control over Third Party Sites, Megaor does not endorse, has not reviewed and is not responsible for the availability of Third Party Sites.

We may define classes of users, such as Subscribers, Moderators, Administrators, Reviewers, Curators, Editors, Top Photographers, Photo Rating System Participants, "Heroes", etc, including classes of one, and define the access, priveleges, services, and site features pertaining to each class. We may assign or reassign you to, or remove you from, one or more user classes, and I may re-define the rights and priveleges pertaining to the classes, at any time without notice or consultation with you. In providing features and services on the site, I reserve the right to single out or discriminate between users of the site, including you, for my own reasons and purposes, which I am not obliged to disclose and which need not be reasonable, provided only that I will not engage in any illegal forms of discrimination. Your submission of content to the site, or the voluntary provision by you of services to us, does not create any implied contract between you and Megaor that we will maintain the site as it was when you submitted content or provided voluntary services, or oblige us to maintain you in a particular class or classes of users or to maintain the rights, priveleges, and site features pertaining to those classes. Your submission of content or voluntary services does not limit my right to deny you future access at any time. Your recourse if you disapprove of any aspect of the site is to cease using the site.
