I was wondering if buyers ever get copies of model or property releases attached to the image or footage they are buying?
I've only bought pictures from one site about 5 years ago and I did not get copies of the releases as far as I remember.
Do some sites send them to the buyer automatically?
Or, are they all just kept private with the agency that sells the images or footage and only brought out if there is a legal issue?
My main concern as a stock contributor is to keep the model or property name, address, email, phone and etcetera private, known only to the agency that sells the content.
I would think the agencies would keep the personal information private but just wanted to make sure.
As a side note to those concerned about privacy; it's important to keep personal information out of IPTC / File Info / Metadata that's sensitive because some (not sure how many) do include IPTC information with licensed sales of images.
