TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The rights to the Album2 system are managed by Album2.com AS. The system is managed by the association Safe Image Storage (Sikker Billedlagring), a native of Norway. Questions and clarifications are answered by contacting support@album2.com with the heading "Subscription Terms". These conditions are considered short and clear and are formulated to be easy to relate to. If account holders have input in this regard, please notify this, with suggestions for improvement.

Subscriptions

  1. Basic Subscription
    Provides the account holder his own space where he can store and manage their photos in one or more photo albums and control who should have access to the album. See the next chapter for more details. Later, the term “account holder” is used for the user / email address / account holder who has the basic subscription. All communication with the account holder takes place from the system side through the account holder's email address in the system.
  2. Low cost basic subscription
    You pay 0.0005 euro per image/year upfront with a minimum price of 5 EURO for 5 years upfront. Low cost subscriptions include advertisments on the system's websites and up to 6 external email advertisements per year. You get a message 1 month before the account will be closed.
  3. The normal basic subscription
    is 10 EUR plus 0,001 EUR per saved image/year. This gives the account holder advertising-free use of the system, access to store their own images and an unlimited number of digital photo albums. An account who is not paid within due date will be downgraded to advertising subscription automatically.
  4. “Eternal” basic subscription subscription
    with a lump sum of NOK 15,000 to get an "infinite account" passive account with up to 5,000 photos. If you want to upload new photos, you must have a subscription in accordance with point 2 or 3. This requires that the account holder ensures further access to the email address used in Album2. If this is not ensured, Album2 cannot transfer the subscription without a court order from the state where the previous account holder was domiciled.
An account holder who has NOT paid within 2 months of due date will be automatically deleted.

Album2 may block account holders with content that Secure Image Storage considers offensive, threatens privacy or infringes copyrights or is otherwise illegal. If this applies to content that you have posted, the account holder will be notified, but you will still retain the content. If this repeats itself, the service may terminate the account If Album2 terminates the account, the account holder has the right to download the content for up to 60 days, provided that due claims have been paid.
