Terms MoonGraphics and MoonPixels

Click here for a directory list of websites offering free image hosting service for remote hosting of avatars and signatures for forums / message boards etc, DO NOT DIRECT LINK THEM FROM HERE.

All images, content and design within MoonGraphics.org and Moonpixels.nl are owned by me *greedy little person I am*.

DO NOT HOTLINK/DIRECT LINK to any of my images!!!
Bandwidth theft or "hotlinking" is direct linking to a website's files (images, video, etc.). An example would be using an <IMG> tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone else's web page so it will appear on your own site, journal, weblog, forum posting, etc.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred from a website to a user's computer. When you view a webpage, you are using that site's data transfer to display the files. Since web hosts charge based on the amount of data transferred, bandwidth is an issue. If a site is over it's monthly bandwidth, it's billed for the extra data or taken offline.

A simple analogy for bandwidth theft: Imagine a random stranger plugging into your electrical outlets, using your electricity without your consent, and you paying for it.

> This website is not an image hosting service for message boards.
> This website is not an image hosting service for online auctions or journals.

HOW DO I KNOW I'M HOTLINKING?
Think about how you display an image graphic in HTML on your web page:
<IMG src="image.jpg" height="350" width="200">

This tag tells the site to request the image.jpg file from the same server as the rest of the site. But if you were to hotlink an image from an outside server it might look like this:
<IMG src="http://notmysite.com/image.jpg" height="350" width="200">

Every time the page is loaded, the outside server has to use it's bandwidth to display the image. To avoid this problem, don't link to files on servers that don't belong to you. To share images and files on your own web page, upload them to your own server or to one of the many free website providers.
I can and will find direct linker trough my site statics, and when I do, I give you 72 hours to remove all the direct links. If you do not comply I am in my rights:
Displaying an image or file that doesn't belong to you is a violation of copyright, making you open to litigation. As I am the owner of the copyright, I could utilize DMCA law to have your site shut down and your information given for use in legal proceedings.

*information from Altlab*

You MUST link MoonGraphics.org if you use any linkware or freebie offered by this site. This includes, but is not limited to: layouts, graphics, buttons, backgrounds, adoptions etc. This link must be placed on the same page that the image(s) appear. You can find link buttons / banners etc. down this page. A link in a link section will not do, sorry!

Only websites freely accessible to everyone on the Internet are permitted to use the linkware layouts. Intranet sites and password protected sites where the password is not freely available to anyone who requests it, are NOT permitted to use my layouts.

All linkware graphics are free to use on personal homepages .

If the page is Commercial please

These graphics may NOT be used on any site containing nudity, pornographic material, animal/child abuse, racism, etc.

WebDesigners that makes homepages for others do not use my linkware graphics when you create a homepage.
If your client like something here you have to It is very simple, if you get paid for making the homepage, I would like to be paid for the graphics I have made.... nothing odd with that me thinks.

You may NOT redistribute any of these graphics. You may NOT include these graphics on a compilation CD or in bulk on a free graphics compilation or collection site on the World Wide Web WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE and my conceptual agreement. Graphics collection web sites are welcome and encouraged to add a link back to this site. These graphics may NOT be included in any other graphic archive or shareware collection.

DO NOT alter any of the graphics or html files in the layouts except to add your own text. Should you wish any changes made to the layout or graphics, you can hire me to do so.

And again: DO NOT DIRECT LINK!
Stating it twice as some just overlook this very importand rule! Linking directly to my graphics (or someone else's) from your server is called bandwidth theft. Basically you slow down the site and use the servertime from the siteowner ... this is very expensive as I pay all the cost for that!
