The privacy and security of our volunteer models are our utmost priority.
One word of caution to our users who might be inclined to try and find out the identity of a model: Don't do it.
The act of asking a person who you know to have participated in this project is a violation of their privacy. Do not do this! And should you ignore this rule and do so anyway, don't be suprised by the answer you get. We're certain you won't like it. Please, be respectful!
Each of our models must sign our model release contract, that spells out clearly what the model's rights and the company's obligations are. If you're curious about the details, click the link above and read the contract yourself.
The key points in the contract:
The photos that are taken of the model have a limited life span; we are obligated to destroy our copies of the photos once this period has expired. We will not keep any of the original photos after this deadline.
We will keep the raw 3D models that we have generated from the photos offline and will store them as long as we retain permission from the model. Having access to the raw 3D models allows us to fix mistakes that we may find later and perhaps improve the quality of the models later in time.
Once we have finished the final models we will release the models online under the Creative Commons CC0 dedication, which rescinds all copyright over the models and places them into the public domain. Once the model files are released and users have downloaded them, it is impossible to take the models back from the public. We've made this clear to our human models when signing the contract. However, models can rescind the permission for us to host the models on our site and for us to retain the raw 3D models.
