Terms of Use

As a fine art publisher, Gallery Direct understands and respects copyright laws. You must own the rights to what you are uploading to our site. By uploading an image you give us permission to use any of the uploaded images to print your order. We are strictly obligated to REFUSE image recreation that violates any implicit or explicit copyright laws. We will deny image recreation that doesn't comply with our "user conduct" terms [see item 4 below].


You own the rights to your images; therefore, we will never use, sell, or print any of your images, unless, we reach out to you for permission and you grant us that permission. Understand this: You will still own the rights to your work.


The files you upload are stored on our secure servers and may remain there for back-up purposes in case you need a reprint or your piece is damaged in shipment. If you want us to permanently delete your images from our server please let us know when you place your order and we will gladly comply. Understand this: We like our server space, so your file will be deleted as part of our standard operating procedure.
