and Reprint Policy
How you can reprint our material for your club or business
We freely allow use of our material for many purposes. See the limitations detailed below.
No portion of this website may be reproduced in any form or distributed by any method, whether for profit or not, without the express written permission of Altiquin Dogs. We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law if you do not ASK in WRITING.
You may, however, store or print a copy *for your personal use only* without asking us for permission.
No portion of the above is intended to prevent or discourage the use of links to Altiquin Dogs or the Online Irish Field Trialing Scene, only the unauthorized remote storage and distribution of the information and/or arrangement.
We consider the promotion and sponsorship of the Online Irish Field Trialing Scene to be an important part of our function. That's why we want to make the information that we have collected, organised and arranged available to the widest possible audience. In most cases you're welcome to use our material. Simply follow these guidelines:
Great! That's why we're here. You don't have to ask our permission to do this. Enjoy the information!! Top of Page
Same as above. Just use your browser to print a copy or download it and print it. This kind of use doesn't require permission. Top of Page
Again, no permission required. We'd appreciate it if you include a note citing us as the source and include our website address. Top of Page
Great! We're flattered you like our material enough to want to show it to others. Just send E-mail to Altiquin Dogs and tell us what page you want to use. We'll reply, with one or two things we'd like you to include on the page to keep the copyright intact, give proper credit, etc. This not only gives you a record that we gave permission but also tells us what interests people so we can keep improving this site.
It is guaranteed that your e-mail won't be bounced around in some electronic multinational corporate maze. Top of Page
Again, just write to Altiquin Dogs and ask and we'll.reply promptly with one or two things we'd like you to include on the page to keep the copyright intact, give proper credit, etc. You'll have permission and we'll know what interests people about our site. Top of Page
Write and ask. Unless we feel you compete too closely with us we'll say yes. (We haven't said no to anyone yet!) Because we like to see what others are doing we'll probably suggest exchanging banner ads or logos or sponsoring each other. Top of Page
No permission from us is ever necessary to link to our website. Feel free! We have a 90x90 logo (5 kb) you can use for free, as well as a 468x60 animated banner. You're more than welcome to link directly to any page of ours, not just the home, index or topics pages. We're flattered you like our material enough to share it with your own visitors. Top of Page
Regretfully, we have to say no. We don't normally give permission to copy the content of our pages to another site because a link to us serves exactly the same purpose. Multiple copies of our content cause multiple search engine entries for the same content and, frankly, we'd rather people come read our pages on our site instead of yours.
If you have something else in mind just go ahead and ask. We say "No" to very few requests.
We did say no to:
And that's about all. Top of Page
Including the copyright information and byline as part of your reprint is very important, no matter how small you think your publication may be. Unfortunately, it is all too common for a page to get picked up and reprinted for profit by a commercial publisher without payment or credit, apparently because a newsletter editor downloaded the article from an online service, reprinted it, but didn't include the copyright information as requested in the text. That placed it in the public domain and gave anyone permission to use it without payment or credit. Top of Page
Altiquin Dogs has gladly put in endless hours collecting, organising, and arranging the information on our website to make it available to you and your readers, clients and customers for free. Please show your appreciation by taking a moment to send e-mail asking for permission, follow our guidelines, and include the copyright and byline information in your reprint. Top of Page
Remember, please write and ask permission. A real, live person will answer---probably within 48 hours during the week---maybe longer. If you don't get an answer in a day or two, ask again. We do answer all reprint requests and they get priority.
Thanks for your cooperation!
