Are there any image hosting sites where you do not
grant the site the license to use uploaded images however they want, including "transmitting" or "distributing" them?
I've heard zenfolio talked about often but even they take that usage license:F. License Granted by Photographers
By transmitting images or any other media to Zenfolio, Photographers grant Zenfolio a nonexclusive right to use, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, and distribute the images or other media as deemed appropriate by Zenfolio for the sole purpose of providing the Photographer Services
That is th important bit legally (ok this is from someone not qualified in Law). If Zenfolio use the image in any other way that providing the "Photographer Services", then you can hold them liable for breach of contract and copyright infringements.
As others have said, if you dont let them "use, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, and distribute the images", how would anyone get to see them.
