The Photographer is aware that images posted to the MLS are often reposted to other real estate services such as Zillow, Redfin and others, through no control of The Client or the MLS. The Photographer specifically allows these reposts of original MLS postings so long as all other terms of this contract are in effect, specifically, that the listing is still active, or one year from delivery date has not elapsed, and will hold harmless The Client (and the MLS) for such normal reposts. Additionally, The Photographer will hold The Client (and the MLS) harmless for any use of the images by third parties beyond their control.
In the course of promoting the home for sale, The Client is specifically allowed to post to FSBO sites, and other sites that promote the home for sale, so long as the contract and its terms remain in effect.

Images may be posted to a Realtors site to promote the sale of the house, but may not be used to promote the Realtor, staging company, or for any other promotional purpose without additional license. In any case, such reposts may NOT alter the images in any way other than resizing/cropping to the format supported by that site.
