We get requests for the use of pictures now and then.
Its a lot of work to write the same again and again, so here is the simple explanation about the use of pictures from showcaves.com.
If the photographer is given, the picture is copyrighted by the respective photographer.
You have to ask him directly.
If you send the request to us, we will forward it to the photographer, if possible.
We will not give you any contact details and do not guarantee that he will answer.
If the images are not marked with a copyright notice, you can simply use them.
We have realised the futility of enforcing copyrights as a private person in times of the internet.
For this reason, the entire website is public domain.
This applies to images and texts.
If they want any support, be it higher resolution, info on the image, and so on, they have to pay for the effort (payment in advance!).
So again: the images are public domain, our time is not.
In the Eurozone you can transfer the money without any problems.
Internationally, we offer payment with PayPal.
We do not offer payment by credit card.
As this is not a commercial website, but a private one, we are not liable for VAT.
We also do not write an invoice.
Whoever pays something can get a receipt.
Of course, we try to respond to every request immediately.
However, it can take from a few hours to a few days.
We do not have a guaranteed response time and if we are on vacation, it can take a few weeks.
