to RSS, etc. feed providers
We have chosen to use the BBC’s
excellent model for online news feed accreditation as the basis for
our association with any RSS, etc. feed providers (which is partly
why we do not use any company logos for our feed providers – just
plain words that can always be understood by everyone).
To make things clear, we formally state our commitment to the RSS,
etc. feed providers as follows:
will always clearly indicate that any headlines, stories
or content are absolutely, and indisputably, the
provider's copyright and are clearly labelled as such
with the © symbol and the provider's name wherever
possible and appropriate.
will always clearly indicate that any RSS, Twitter,
Facebook, etc. news feeds wholly belong to the provider,
in any accompanying table headers, banners, text,
Disclaimer and Copyright pages, etc. associated with the
news feed display(s).
will always directly link any RSS feed(s) to the story,
feature or article concerned on the provider's own
website pages, and will never go through any other
intermediate (interstitial) website or traffic route.
news feeds appearing on our pages will be automatically
updated regularly (usually, on average, every 30
minutes), to correctly reflect the updated RSS, etc.
feed output being generated by the provider's company.
Wherever possible, the provider's company name at the
top of any news, etc. feed will link directly to the
provider's own website home page, or to the provider's
RSS, etc. feed page concerned.
will never ‘pass off’ the provider's news feed service
as our own, and will always give it full credit, as
described in the paragraphs above.
provider's news feed will always be separated from any
other news feeds, advertising, or other page content, by
being contained within a delineated box, clearly
indicating it as being distinct from any surrounding
will never specifically use the provider's company name,
or trading name in our advertising or promotions (unless
requested to do so), but will normally simply refer to
the provider's business using the generic term of ‘one
of our news feed providers’ should the need arise.
will pass on any requests for contact with the
provider's company, should they come through us, as
quickly as practically possible.
