The EyeEm page seems to be strictly for phone photography.  At least, they want you do download a phone app to get started and I don’t see any way of uploading photos from a computer.  That suggests you may be using a phone for photography.  If you are serious about photography, you might like to get a device that was designed as a camera instead of as a phone with a camera built in as an afterthought.  Generally, cameras are easier to hold and are better at more kinds of photography.  But, if you are into phone photography, you might like this link.

So, this probably won’t be a problem if you are just posting trees and spiders.  It could become a problem if you start posting photos of people since they could potentially use one of your photos of a person, then make you pay damages if they are sued for using that person’s image in their ad.
