Images & Written Content
If you’d like us to remove an image, it’s not a problem. We’ll take it down ASAP. But, we buy most of our featured images from ShutterStock, Adobe Stock, Unsplash or Pixabay. Please make sure you’re not selling them there first. Also, we search for images with “Creative Commons,” “Labelled for reuse” or “Labelled for noncommercial reuse.” If we found them with those labels, then please update your site’s meta data to make it clear it’s not for reuse. If we found them as a license-free image, then a lot of other people did, too.
As for the articles and ghost hunting pics, you can use them freely, just drop a reference with GhostsAndMonsters.com as the source. GhostsAndMonsters.com’s site content is for commentary, criticism (as part of a review), news reporting, education, research and good, creepy fun. As for our ghost hunting pics, you’re free to use them—just source our site. Now, go spread the fun of ghost and monster hunting!
The only time we receive personal information is when a visitor comments or replies on a post, or they submit an email address and name on our Contact Us page. Email addresses will get deleted 30 days after submission. As for visitors’ comments or replies, the system stores email addresses, screen names and IP addresses. This is how WordPress works for comments and replies. We can’t change that. If you want us to delete a comment or reply, we will as soon as possible, but our response will still be available to other visitors. Please use the Contact Us page to tell us where your comment or reply is, so we can delete it.
When visitors use the social sharing buttons on posts, the social media platform will receive personal information to post to visitors’ profiles. If you don’t want that exchange to happen, then you can simply copy and paste the URL into your social media profile. Our social sharing plug-in counts the number of times visitors share an article, but it does not store any personally identifiable information.
GhostsAndMonsters.com is a non-commercial site, so we don’t make any money from it. That means:
- We don’t accept advertising
- We buy all gadgets, tours and books we review, and receive no compensation for them
- We don’t trade or solicit links
