Question about Dreamstime working with PicScout

Hambagahle
I found a page here http://www.picscout.com/client-list/ which identifies Dreamstime as a partner of PicScout.
I know that ******** bought PicScout, so the first question is: is the information on that page accurate?
If so, where can I learn more about how DT and PicScout collaborate, and the terms and conditions of this relationship as they affect DT contributors?

Is DT a partner because Picscout is using an image purchased from DT and give a credit line under said image in their partner section. I do not see anywhere that states DT as a partner.

@BCritchley: I don't understand what you're trying to communicate, sorry.

A dialog box at the top left of that page says "Customer List"; the DT logo is in row 5, rightmost column. That leads me to believe this page claims DT is a "Customer" of PicScout, hence my questions.

Seems I used a name I should not have; thanks for replacing it with the ******, apologize for my error.

" which identifies Dreamstime as a partner of PicScout." from your first comment and "A dialog box at the top left of that page says "Customer List"; the DT logo is in row 5, rightmost column" from your second comment.

Does this not just make DT a customer not a partner of the site, big difference don't you think?

Picscout is a Dreamstime partner. We are the first microstock agency to be included in their partners list.

@BCritchley: Ok, now I understand what you're getting at, thanks.

I would still like to know from DT if they have a relationship of any kind and, if so, the terms and conditions that affect contributors.

Reasons for asking include:
1. I have found quite a bit of information about PicScout and their relationships with various parties, and I know from at least one of those parties that the information on the internet is sadly out of date... So, is there a relationship or not?
2. Some of the material on the internet (yeah, I know it's no fountain of truth) indicate that PicScout's ambitions include "revenue sharing" in a manner that appears to have some potential to affect net payment to contributors. As a contributor (and very small one at that), I'd like to know what the relevant T's and C's are...

@Nikitu: Thanks. So is it safe to assume that PicScout has fingerprinted all images on DT?

DT? Should we be paying any attention to PicScout? What motivated DT to enter into the relationship?
