When someone is asking so I try to say yes but:

- - Firstly ask them what is purpose they are going to use the image for.
- - Then I ask them to let me know the URL where my image is going to appear
- - Then I look at that URL deeply enough, I try that images coming from me
enter a site with some minimum of aesthetics of my preference.
- - Also I have the possibility to understand what is that URL intended for:
is belonging to a non profit organization or what ?

I usually start this process thinking that I will say YES but I don't care
if they are going to give me link to my web site.

I hope it can help you, Steve.
