Authorization for Use of Photos in the Food Fetish Friday Series

Do you want to be featured in Food Fetish Friday? First, I need your express written authorization to share your photos as part of the Food Fetish Friday series. 

Why I need your authorization

I started Food Fetish Fridays to celebrate, promote and share all the incredible food I discover each week while browsing hundreds of food blogs. To date, the Food Fetish Friday series has featured hundreds of mouth-watering photos from hundreds of unique food blogs and it has been a fun way to share your gorgeous food with friends and fans everywhere. 

However, I want to protect your photos from unauthorized use or distribution, thus I take a proactive approach and insist on receiving your express written authorization before including your content in the Food Fetish Friday series.

What I need from you before featuring your photos

  • Email the following exact phrase to javelinwa77ior@gmail.com: I agree and authorize use of my photos in the Food Fetish Friday series.
  • Include a list of URLs for the blogs or sites from which you authorize me to use photos
  • The above phrase sent from your email address will serve as your electronic signature to the Agreement Terms (see below).

What you agreeing to

Agreement Terms

By authorizing me to share your photos in the Food Fetish Friday series, you will be authorizing and agreeing to the following uses for your food photos and information:

  • Saving selected photos to my local computer
  • Uploading selected photos to my blog’s server
  • Posting selected photos to my blog as part of the Food Fetish Friday series
  • Posting and/or uploading selected photos to social media sites such as Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter for purposes of sharing and/or promoting your food photos and/or the Food Fetish Friday series
  • Storing your email address as part of a Food Fetish Friday email mailing list or address book for the sole purpose of communicating updates or changes to this agreement
  • Photos shared in the Food Fetish Friday series are never hot-linked from your blog’s server and all photos will be accompanied by a) the name of the photograph’s owner’s blog and b) a link to the original blog post where the photo appeared. 
  • All photos appearing on your blog will be assumed to be photos owned by you unless you have explicitly stated otherwise (such as in the case of a guest blogger). 
  • All photos authorized for use in the Food Fetish Friday series remain the sole property and responsibility of the original author/photographer.
  • Agreement to these terms does not guarantee your blog, recipe or photos will be featured in the Food Fetish Friday series. Featured photos and recipes are selected after evaluating uniqueness, creativity, ingredients, photo quality, photo size and a variety of other factors.

Can you Revoke Authorization at a later date?

Yes. If you provide your express written authorization for use of your photos today and at a subsequent date no longer wish to be included in the Food Fetish Friday series, you can revoke your authorization by contacting me with your request for removal from the series. Due to the number of photos featured in the Food Fetish Friday series, it may take up to 30 days to remove your photos from my blog, Tumblr and Pinterest.

Can you provide authorization for only specific photos?

Unfortunately, due to the sheer number of blogs I follow each week and the dynamic nature of Food Fetish Friday posts, it is not possible for me to request individual authorization for specific photos from each blogger every week.

If you have any questions about the Agreement Terms or providing your authorization for use of your photos in the Food Fetish Friday series, please contact me.
