So I have a strange question. I saw that all uploaded picture on SE get uploaded to an imgur-account. So I'd like to use this possibility (imgur pro) for my website too. But now my question: But are you guys(administrators) responsible for the content of this account? I know that an owner of a website isn't responsible for third party content. But because the pics get uploaded to a "private" account I'd like to know what the law says.

Because if somebody uploads illegal content. What happens?

    You may find what you're looking for in Imgur's TOS, if not this may still be a better question to ask Imgur rather than SE – apaul Aug 12 '14 at 23:17

Yes, Stack Exchange Inc. has stated:

Imgur's "normal" terms of service do not apply to pictures you upload through Stack Exchange.

As far as rights go, your deal is with us, and is subject to our terms of service, privacy policy, and cc-wiki content license.

That means that the images you upload are covered under our "attribution required" license just like anything else you contribute.

We have a contract with Imgur LLC that explicitly states:

Imgur will make no claim of copyright to any images stored by SE on the Image Server (other than Imgur's own copyrighted images and other works, if any).
