Shutterstock displays a privacy policy on its website BUT it's onle there for the show. They scorn your rights, your privacy and your confidentiality. Once you have made the mistake to send information, to register, send in data and details, they won't let you remove it, access it, delete it contrary to what is written in their mock policy.
Not only they clearly abuse the current legislation but they abuse their users, clients and contributors.

They feign not to read or heed your mails, warnings and requests. The only way to deal with these people  (and they are used about it), is the lawsuit.

Instead of a rant full of sweeping statements, maybe you should try to explain rationally why you feel aggrieved. Wait until you're in a calmer frame of mind. (Do as I say, not as I sometimes write.)

No vested interest here of course...:-)

Calmly :

1. Shutterstock displays a privacy policy on its website -stop.

2. They don't respect what is written in this privacy policy-stop.

3. Therefore, this is a mock-up privacy policy-stop.

What else could be said ?

Again, too many vested interests in this forum (too many people getting money from some dubious stocks companies) to be objective with this type of complaint.

Makes me laugh....

Shutterstock is the god of microstocks
And a god can do whatever he wants!
If you don't agree with him you will not go in the photographers' paradise

Well, Ernst, I (for one) am still waiting for further details on how SS has violated your privacy.

Please either explain or quit complaining. Like others here, I don't particularly care for wide, sweeping accusations with no specifics to back them up.

If that was aimed at me, I have no connections with SS. I don't work for them, I don't submit to them, I have no shares in them. I have no axe whatsover to grind on their behalf. TBH, I'm always interested when someone says they are not the most fantastic thing since sliced bread. But you need to provide concrete facts.

Hey Martha,

Why don't you try for yourself ? Contact these nice people at SS (remind me of some other organisation of the past) and ask them (as a test) to delete your record from their systems.

After, please come back here and tell us in details what happened.

Cheers  :)

Sure, it makes sense but I will give the same answer, please try it for yourself to see how they handle your privacy there. I don't want to write a very long story here and also, legally I am not supposed to write about it in case of lawsuit.

But please, don't take my word for it, just try it and keep us posted after your experience.

She doesn't have an account with Shutterstock, so there is nothing to delete. The rest of us don't really want to delete our accounts. Unless, you are going to send me monthly checks.  ;)

I'd say if you are serious about this, then find who handles these things in the US government. My quick search looks like the FTC (federal trade commission) handles it, but I really didn't read much into it.

thanks to all the people who are paid by shutterstock or work for them and disrupt normal discussions and negative voting.
I understand some here make money with these clowns, others are working there and some have marketing interests with them.

Have fun and continue to send pictures for few dollars a year to crook exploiting your work to make millions. They need the 90% of idiots who will never make a living out of it.

You never explained what the issue is. And when people ask you start to insult them.
Troll.

Poor chap. Sounds like he's just failed the test to become an SS contributor for the umpteenth time. This is quite a common reaction.
