How do I buy a product from the image and find out more details about it?

Yandex does not provide information about found images, except for those that have been automatically indexed by a robot. If you have any questions about a found image or you want to buy something or find out more information, contact the administrators of the site where the image is located (usually there's contact information or a contact form on the site). You can also contact the person shown in the image through the site's administrators.

How do I protect an image from plagiarism?

Yandex.Images searches only among images that are freely available on the internet. When an image appears on a site's page, like on a social network, it becomes available to search engines (if it was not prohibited from indexing). Yandex clearly warns about copyrights on found images.

Yandex is only a window to the internet; we are not authorized to investigate questions of plagiarism. If you don't want your image to be placed on other site's pages, please contact those sites' administrators to request that they delete the image.

How do I delete an image from search?

Yandex.Images does not place images; it only searches for them among images freely available on the internet. If you don't want an image to be displayed in search results, please go to the site where the image is located (the site's address is displayed when hovering the mouse on the image) and contact the site's administrators with your request to delete the image or prohibit it from indexing. The image will disappear from search results approximately two to three weeks after it is deleted from the site.

Our robot can find copies of the images as well. That's why it may still be found on other sites even if it is deleted from one. Check whether there are copies of the image on other sites. If there are copies, contact the administrators of each site with your request to delete the image.
