Terms of Service

Welcome to the DICOM Library free online file sharing service. Please read these Terms of Service carefully before using this DICOM Library service.

I. Your Acceptance

By using or visiting the DICOM Library website or any DICOM Library products and services, that are provided on the DICOM Library website (the "Service"), you agree to follow:
  1. These terms and conditions (the "Terms of Service"),
  2. DICOM Library's privacy policy, which can be found here and incorporated herein by reference.
If you do not agree to any of these terms of service or privacy policy, please do not use the Service.
We recommend to periodically review the most up-to-date version of the terms of service. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, add, or delete portions of these terms of service at any time.
Nothing in these Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.

II. Description of Service

  1. These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Service, including users who are also contributors of Content on the Service. Content includes all information and data provided in stored DICOM files (including the text, software, various scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, audiovisual combinations or interactive features) and other materials you may view on, access through, or contribute to the Service. The Service includes all aspects of DICOM Library, including but not limited to all products, software and services offered via the DICOM Library website, such as the DICOM Library channels, the DICOM Library "Embeddable Viewer", the DICOM Library "Uploader" and other applications.
  2. There may be links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by DICOM Library. DICOM Library has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites.
  3. All services provided by DICOM Library are free-of-charge. However, DICOM Library may offer services, which considerably increase the performance and comfort, for a charge.
  4. The DICOM Library renders web hosting services for its users based on the following provisions:

    1. PREFACE. DICOM Library allows its users to upload DICOM files to DICOM Library servers. After saving the uploaded files, the user gets:
      • a "Management" link through which the uploaded file can be managed,
      • a "Download" link through which the file can be downloaded,
      • a "View" link, which allows to view files over the internet,
      • and a "Delete" link, which allows the user to remove the uploaded file from the server.

    2. UPLOAD RULES
      Users are permitted to upload only DICOM files to DICOM Library servers. Uploaded information and data may be used only for reviewing, research or teaching.
      Before uploading files, DICOM Library provides DICOM tags Anonymity. It means that DICOM files are anonymized before they are uploaded, so DICOM Library servers do not receive this private information.
      DICOM Library Anonymity service allows the users to NOT distribute Patient, Institution and Physicians private information that is usually stored within the DICOM file. However, private information may be stored in other Tags and/or in the Image or Video content of the DICOM file. Therefore, a user always remains responsible for the information s/he distributes.
      We do not guarantee that all Tags will be entirely anonymous. If a user finds some anonymity issues (e.g. finds any private information) in any file, which is located in DICOM Library, s/he must immediately contact and inform us.

DICOM Library anonymize these DICOM Tags:
