Default Using Member Photos From My Site

Hi all

My question is concerning the use of member photos for promotion on social media.

I'm about to launch a niche dating website, it will have a relatively small target audience. My question is: If I insert in the terms and conditions of my site that member photos can be used for promoting the site on social media. Am I able to then use the photographs of my signed members to promote my site?

I ask because I know that there is complex laws regarding the use of somebodys photos online and I cant seem to get an answer searching through the search engines.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Chris M

Default Re: Using Member Photos From My Site

Sorry, I'm based in the UK but my server is in the US. Not sure if this makes a difference. And members can potentially come from any country.

Thanks
