Has anyone been able to find Fotolia's privacy policy?

It is linked from

But that is a broken link. I asked them about it, and they responded:

Answers: Fotolia : We are not sure we understand your request. Please describe in more detail how can we assist you.

I've just opened it.  It says:

    * Private information protection
    * Protection of royalties
    * Restrictions on use of images
    * Standard pricing and payment policies

Fotolia desires to be open with artists regarding the royalty payments made to them for the sale of file licenses. For this purpose Fotolia added a online document as a summary of transactions and payments made to artists regarding file sales.

Standard pricing and payment

I hope the links are all ok.

Hmm, right. It opens in the UK site, but linked to "Terms and Conditions" and not "Privacy policy".

Respect for Privacy
Fotolia never sells or rents private information to third parties.
Terms and Conditions

In the other sites (all but US and UK), the text under "respect for privacy" is longer, saying basically that FT won't disclose any personal data except under juditial demand.

Thanks. Just checking to see if I was going crazy or something, since they could not understand the problem I needed to figure out if it was me or them ;)
