As the publisher of Our Website we are not responsible for any content provided to us for publication by users or other third parties. Content provided by third parties that we are not responsible for will be tagged ‘Featured News‘ if it is an advertising feature, ‘Press Release‘ and/or ‘Sponsored News‘ if the article is linked to a banner advert or other advertising scheme. Other content we are not responsible for are those marked ‘Letters to the Editor,’ which are the opinions of the authors concerned only.

Content marked ‘Election Communications‘ should be followed up using the contact details referred to at the bottom of the article, which is known as the ‘imprint.’ All other content is the responsibility of the article author, who is named at the top of Our articles. You should feel free to contact Us directly if You have had a unsatisfactory experience with Our Website and We will endeavour to put it right. Equally We would like to hear from You if you have had a particularly good experience so that We know the aspects of Our provision of information most visitors want. You acknowledge and will respect all such copyright and other intellectual property rights. We own or may own in the look and feel of the Website and its contents including any sounds, music, text, graphics, data, stills, photographs and moving images. Such intellectual property rights may include all registered and unregistered intellectual property rights of any type or nature including trademarks and community marks. In terms of the content We use that has third party intellectual property rights associated with it, we may contact the people who’ve taken photographs or other material we want to use in our coverage and ask for their permission before doing so. You are advised to refer to the licencing information at the bottom of each article before making copies or derivative works of the article in question. In situations where there is a strong public interest and often time constraints, such as a major news story relating to Internet trolling (e.g. the UK riots or misuse of the Internet by a public figure that has themselves condemned such behaviour in others), we may use a photograph or other image without clearing it with them. Such decisions are not taken lightly, and it is likely the editor-in-chief will have made the decision that the public interest criterion is met. If We use material to which You believe you own the copyright to and We have not asked for your permission, please contact Us in the first instance. We always try to give attribution to the copyright holder of content we use, as it is something we try to do, especially when using photographs. If it is not possible to make contact with a person, they do not wish to be contacted, or they have a conflict of interest in relation to the story, then our attribution to the source of the image will be provided.
