Terms of service

Notice: By using this service, you are agreeing to the following terms!

1. Eligibility of Service

Access to this free service is open to everyone. If it is clear to us that you are abusing the system you will be blocked or banned permanently.

2. Liability

You agree to use our services at your own risk and to not hold us liable for any damages for any reason.

3. Cancellation

You may cancel your paid services at any time.

4. Prepaid

The service is offered as is and on best effort service level only. Due to the nature of our prepaid accounts we cannot offer refunds. Payments are processed by Paypal.

5. Adult material

We will honor requests for adult-related thumbnails, but we do so at our discretion. Accounts that are primarily adult in nature will be required to upgrade to a paid account for continued access.

6. One account

You as a user (person or company) can have only one account. If we detect multiple accounts we can close them all.

7. Free accounts

Free accounts are limited to 1,000 screenshots per month. If you request more we will request you to upgrade to a paid account.

Accounts that cause problems in operating the thumbnail.ws service for other users can be deactivated at thumbnail.ws sole discretion and without notice. In other words: do not try to crash our servers or your account will be closed.

8. Modifications

thumbnail.ws reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which this website is offered, including but not limited to the charges associated with the use of the thumbnail.ws website.

9. E-mail validation

The right to communicate with you is our only requirement for using our free services. Therefore, if your email does not work or if you unsubscribe from our announcements or notifications, then your account will be subject to deactivation when we clean out accounts. We can send you notifications regarding the service and occasional notices of feature enhancements and new offerings (i.e. no spam!). This rule is in effect because it is extremely difficult to provide support to users who do not receive our communications.

10. Hotlinking

You are required to store the output of our API on your own server. Hotlinking to images or results on our server is not allowed. Normal usage of our API is: send request to one of our API endpoints, receive a screenshot, store screenshot on (your) server, use image in your own application, clear cache after X hours, refresh image via API etc. etc.

11. Termination/Access Restriction

Thumbnail.ws reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the thumbnail.ws website and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice.

12. Threads

Users with a free account are limited to 1 concurrent threads or requests. Users with a premium account are limited to 5 concurrent thread or request. If you need more resources or power we can set up a dedicated server for you. Please contact us for details.
