Copyright and DMCA Policy

Imgix is not an image host. We process, cache, and deliver images hosted by our customers, solely at our customers' direction. Accordingly, for an image to be removed from a web page, a takedown request should be directed to the owner of the page on which the allegedly infringing image appears. Nevertheless, it is our policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law and are properly provided to us. It is also Imgix's policy to terminate, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, the accounts of customers who may be repeat infringers.

  1. a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
  2. identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
