Terms of Use
1. No linking directly to the images.

In no way do I allow 'remote linking', 'hotlinking', 'inline linking' or any other type of leaching of my bandwidth. If you want to use the images, download the graphics to your hard drive and upload them to your own server.

If your server / webspace provider doesn't allow you to upload images, either get a better host or use an image host that does allow remote linking, such as ImageShack or Photobucket

Why don't I allow this? Every time an image is loaded it puts my data transfer (bandwidth) usage up. If I allow hotlinking maxxblack would soon cost me way too much to host and I would have to pull the images (or link you to Goatse).

2. No site rippers or offline download browsers allowed.

Why not? Same as above, it takes up too much data transfer. I've seen site rippers try to grab EVERY image in a collection and often at break-neck speeds (totally ignoring any server speed limitations!).

3. Please link to us if you find something you like.

OK, Linking to maxxblack isn't *technically* required, but it is very much appreciated! Besides, telling your visitors where to download free images will make them happy to, and it's simply the the nice thing to do. :)

Quick Summary

These images are free (to the best of my knowledge) for use in personal web sites, email or blogs, but since there is a chance that there may be copyrights that we haven't found (we do check, but images can be stripped of copyright comments, someone else may take claim of ownership and place them in the public domain etc.) , use is at your own risk. I'd advise strongly against using any of these images for commercial or business endeavors.
