5. Taken from sources believed to be in the public domain. These images and contents, which are widely distributed for free use on various Internet web authoring sites, are freely available on the World Wide Web and have been compiled from various public media sources or have been submitted by users of the site through e-mail. We ask that images submitted to Guide2Secret.com by users are free of copyright or are original images owned and/or created by the individuals submitting the image and, therefore, any image submitted to Guide2Secret.com is free of copyright unless otherwise notified. Submission of original material, to Guide2Secret.com, explicitly implies permission of the further unrestricted use by Guide2Secret.com. It is assumed that all such images are indeed public domain, but since such images are passed around freely between sites, it is not always possible to trace them back to their original source. It is possible for copyrighted material to inadvertently end up on public domain sites.

However, if you are the owner and would rather credit be given for the material, instead of removal, we will gratefully give the appropriate credit desired.
