I was about to post on this topic but in a slightly different vein.
I'd like a nice place online to post (until I can get time to get my servers at home up and running)...but I want to make sure I don't sign away any of my 'rights' to my images, and also to help mitigate some privacy issues.
I don't have a Facebook account due to privacy issues. Not only do they change their policies quite often un-announced, but they do so in a fashion that often leaves users with changed settings and expose supposedly 'private' data. That and the data mining they allow companies, and the federal govt to do, just make me uncomfortable with putting anything there.
I've not yet had a chance to read the TOS for sites like Flickr, so, was hoping someone in the know could tell what rights you get to keep and what rights you 'sign' over to them for use of their service?
Again, in the near future, I'm going to get my own servers up and running at home again...and can build my own website and all for hosting my pictures, videos, and supporting blog and texts for both my private and (hopefully) in the future, professional services...but for now, I'd like to have some way that is manageable and fair in terms of TOS and privacy to post online for friends and family to see.
Thanks in advance,
