My photos of my daughter and grandchildren found when I googled Whitwell...

I got a shock tonight when I googled Whitwell Wood for ideas for a painting I would like to do. Up came the photos I put in a blog on Goy about our walk in the woods. I didn’t realize my photos of the children could be taken from here. I won’t be putting anymore photos of them on here. I found it a bit scary.

sadly once a photo is uploaded it is available for any one else to look at. you still own the photo and it shouldn't be used by any one else with out your permission.

Hi Shiela, yes Sbg is right, you still own the copyright to those photo's, so if that web site has used them without your permission get in touch with them, and get them taken off, Derek.

Copied and pasted from the T&Cs found at the bottom of the page.
Hope this helps a wee bit HB. If you are directed by the link back to GOY then all you need do is delete your pictures and if as Derek says it's another site - then contact them.
I've often googled plants I have or bought for some inspiration and find many GOY pictures are shown.

If I recall rightly google made a new policy any photos they will take, I ve seen a lot of mine on google search from a history site.

Thanks everyone. My daughter doesn't agree with putting photos of children on social network sites for safety reasons and I just had a gut reaction when I saw my photos of them had been used elsewhere. I'll delete them.

You should contact google and tell them you want it removed Homebird, as I uploaded to another site where the web masters son worked for google and he told his son and they took it off. Tell them of your s and your daughters concerns.

Be careful too how much of your house and garden you show, the unscrupulous are out there as well as nice folk.
What a shock Homebird

What a shock you must have had. It's sad that there are people who do such things :(

I am so naive, but I'm learning. I should have thought on when Michaella had her garden photo used by someone else last year. Thank you 3d, Pam and Hywell.

You are not on you own Homebird, I just hope people on here realise how easy it is to get some ones address hence why insurance companies ages ago have stated if any one tells some one over the net friend chat room on a web site like this, that they are going on holiday and then get burgled they won't pay out.

Awful isn't it , but think of all the weird blogs we get .......its open to anyone.....

Right I have contacted my grand son he said soon as you upload any photo on net google takes a small copy as its pubic domain , if any one else wants to copy your photo they need your permission, if you want that photo what google has used of yours to be removed you have to contact google also the web site it has been uploaded to and ask them both to remove your image. Hope this makes sense to you all.

Thank you for all this info. It has made most interesting reading. I knew nothing of all this.

It's very sad Hb ... but I'm sorry to say it happens an awful lot ... when OH and I were looking at holiday clubs in Cornwall on-line a couple of years ago we were surprised to see a picture of me feeding crumbs to a Robin at a Cornish tea shop! We contacted the travel company and asked them to delete it from future brochures! And they did! ... :o)

Ff, I have started deleting anything that has a place name and the children are in them. I know they are different now to when when I took the photos but I will still be uncomfortable until I have deleted them all. Thank goodness this is the only place I have put any.
Shirley, it's a bit of a jolt isn't it when you first see your photos out there. Glad you managed to sort yours out.
Thank you for the advice 3d.

Thats what friends are for its just a shame we live in a twisted world.

27 Jan, 2014

 

I shall have to do some deleting too - I too was rather naive.

Thank you so much for warning us.

Very interested to hear about the insurance being negated if you say you are going on holiday. Won't make that mistake again!

Yes insurance seem to always find ways of gettimg out of paying out I follow their example by taking a leaf from a rich mans book, I dont pay them no insurance.
