1. Your own website that you ensure you maintain and secure.
2. DropBox
3. iCloud for Windows or MAC.
4. Possibly One Drive (but make sure you maintain backups).

Depends on how private you want them to be.  I always assume there is no real privacy on the internet.  Everything I want to keep private stays here on my own computers.  I don't even put such things on my own web sites.

As above keep them on the PC, and make regular backups of the PC. Keep those backups locked away in a safe.

you can use www.Flickr.com, which requires a Yahoo! account. ―1 terabytes of free space.

if you don't want to share, simply mark all photos as private. you can always share with whoever you want afterwards.

I have tried Flickr before. If you use this service, please be sure you have a backup.

Of course, backups really apply to anything.

Are you dealing with short term storage (a couple of years), or long term archival storage (decades)?  The two are dissimilar.  If it's short term, no need to read further.

Long term archival storage is going to be a hard sell.  Many of the potential audience are LDS.  The LDS has been dealing with this issue for a long time, and while much of their information is online, they don't trust digital storage for the actual archiving.  Their physical archives are microfilm and paper.

Nor would I trust it, for the long term.  The solutions of 1990 are no longer even technologically available - where are 40 MB MFM drives and 5" floppies?  And that's only 25 years.

The only things that last are glass plate negatives and acid-free paper.

Opinion:  I would not trust any of them, as (a) many require you to give up the rights to your own images and (b) terms and conditions have been known to change suddenly and unilaterally.

I have no issue with DropBox for security or long term use. Otherwise I keep stuff on my computer.

Whatever you use, back it up it for sure.

One thing I am curious about are the two phrases used in your question:
"our market research company" and "family photos".

Is this your own market research company, and are the photos of families you have used as part of your research?

If so, then those people deserve privacy and there are also laws in most countries that dictate how such data is stored.  As such, privacy and security should be your main consideration.
