We love it when you snap and share your latest ao.com purchases with the world. In fact, we love your shots so much that we showcase the very best on our website and social media channels. If you're feeling snap happy, here is everything that you need to know about uploading your photos and how we will use them.
When you post your photograph to us you agree to allow (free of charge) ao.com and the other companies in our group the right to use your photograph, name, social media handle, likeness and other submissions including (but not limited to) those you have tagged with @ao, #aoathome or any other hashtags that relate to the ao.com brand for any marketing, advertising and promotional purposes. This includes use on ao.com and the ao.com social media pages. You agree that we may use, reproduce, distribute, alter and/or edit in any manner we see fit.
All photographs we receive go through a moderation and approval process. We’ll carefully select which submissions to use and there’s no guarantee that your images will be selected and shown on ao.com or our social media pages.
The photos you submit are your responsibility and you may only submit photographs which you have taken.
Any photo that you’ve posted that has then been moderated and uploaded by us will be available to anyone with access to our website or social media sites.
Please don’t submit photos that include any confidential information. For example, your home address or contact numbers. Any submissions including personal information will not make it through our moderation process.
We won’t be able to view, approve or post any of your pictures if your social media account is set to private.
For your photo to appear on site or on our social media channels, it’s got to pass our moderation process. We accept posts in our absolute discretion but we won’t accept or post your photo if it:
If you want to make a complaint regarding a photograph or would like to remove your own images from our site, please contact us at [email protected]. If a formal complaint is made against you, we may refuse any further posts from you. Although we can remove photos from our own gallery on ao.com, removing images from third party sites, for example, social media channels, may be out of our control. In such cases, you will need to contact the third party website directly.
You can go directly to ao.com upload your own image. Just click ‘add a photo’ then follow the simple on-screen instructions.
You’ll be asked to register your name and email address or sign in via a social channel. This is so we can assign you a username.
Similar to the hashtag upload, your image will then pull into our system for approval. If it’s published on our website, your chosen username will be displayed publically.
