12. Can photos be shared for free on Facebook?
Yes, you can do so right from the website, but they will be shared in low resolution and with the watermark on top to protect them. Sharing will also improve chances for surfers to find their photos; share whenever you want BUT.. don’t forget the pics do not last forever on SYS so…if you like it..Buy IT
13. Can I mark photos I like and buy them later?
Yes, you can save your favourites and if the price changes or the photo is about to be removed you will be notified, so you can buy it at the new price or before it is deleted.
14. What rights do I own on the photos I buy?
Rights are only for personal use and not commercial, if you are interested in commercial use just select "business rights" and buy the photo at the defined price (the photographer who defined the price will have to own the rights and be able to prove it when asked).
