1. What is your image policy?
The anime images on here are all copyright of their respective artists and companies, and they are the sole individuals capable of restricting their use. We are allowed to keep this public archive here, under the Fair Use act, and no copyright infringement is intended or implied. We claim no ownership of any image, whether scanned by us or not. It is our policy, and legal fact, that the scanning of an image does not give the person scanning it ownership of it, therefore that person or persons can have no say or restriction in the distribution of images. If you have legal documents from the copyright holders giving you exclusive use of an image, we will gladly honor them, once we are satified that they are genuine.
Out of respect for people who draw fanart, or create wallpapers, we do not keep them in the central portions of our gallery, but the creators of such images, are welcome, and encouraged to, create their own albums, within their own gallery, under the Personal Galleries section, with their own notes and comments. In such submissions the authors do retain credit, and ownership, and can delete the images, and moderate their responces, as they see fit. If you feel that one of the images in the main gallery sections is a wallpaper, or an edited image created by you, please let us know, and we will gladly remove it, or move it to your personal album.
Anyone is free to take the general images from our site (in regards to the images in the personal albums section, you should contact the owner of the album for permission), and use them in whatever way they may want. The only thing we do not allow is direct linking or images, as we do have to pay for bandwidth, and as such, can not provide it to you for free.
3. Is your site spoiler-free?
No, AnimeGalleries.Net does and will contain spoilers, as images come from different times in a particular show. So you may see a spoiler while you browse. Please be aware of the risk.
4. Hey, some of your images have logos or stamps from other sites! You stole them!
Read our policy again. In general images were collected from all over the net, from user submissions, and from usenet posts. A stamp on an image only serves to make the image less usable, and in no way grants someone ownership of it. We stand by our policy on this, and would also like to add that a great many images were scanned by more then one person, and we will not, and do not attempt to find the "original" scanner of the image, or credit a person for their scans, or give them ownership of it. If someone submits scans to our site, we will certanly thank them, and post that, but images on the net, of copyrighted characters, really are fair game.
5. If I use your images, do I have to link back?
No, you do not. That would be a restriction of use on images that we do not own, and it would be neither proper nor fair to do so. We certanly welcome linking to us, and have a few banners and buttons you can use if you wanted.
6. Hey! You stole images from my gallery, so I am going to steal all of your pictures for my site!
Go right ahead, please, enjoy yourself.
