Use of Family Photographs
I have uploaded some family photographs to galleries and use them as portraits to help visualise individuals. I have recently looked at another commercial genealogy product as a way of finding a wider range of DNA matches.
I was surprised to find that in their "suggested match" feature they have access to my family photos. I have uploaded similar photos to another commercial website so I am not 100% sure that they obtained the photos from FamilySearch but FamilySearch trademark is shown when displaying the suggested matches and images.
So does FamilySearch sell your information to commercial companies ?
I know that adding images gives access to all other users, but sharing them with another company that is then selling them for profit ?
I contribute my time and information on the principle of building something for open community use, not to be locked away behind a paywall for someone else's profit.
