anonymous Promoting within the Care2 Terms of Service July 06, 2006 8:25 AM

We enjoy reading about the websites and groups you want to share with us, and we encourage you to continue doing so. However, there seems to be a problem with the posting of hotlinked images.

When you copy/paste images from other websites, you are hotlinking. That means that you are stealing their bandwidth. And that violates Care2's Terms of Service. We have posted about this before, and we have had to remove several posts that violated the Terms of Service in that manner, and yet, it seems to continue to be a problem.

In order to protect you, us, and Care2, effective immediately, any posted images that link directly to other websites will be removed without further notice. We apologize that it has to be this way, but we don't want there to be any negative repercussions if a website owner should discover that their images are being hotlinked by someone here.

There has been some confusion about what you can and cannot post, in terms of Care2's Terms of Service about advertising. As we have come to understand it, you may post a link to the site you'd like us to know about, but you cannot state that you are selling anything.

You may not promote any website or group which advertises making money from any home-based business, as these are pyramid schemes, which are illegal. Promotions which advertise home-based businesses will be deleted without notice, as they violate the Care2 Terms of Service, as well as federal law.

We want you to enjoy this group.  We just want you to understand that there are some things you can't post because they violate the Care2 Terms of Service and/or federal law.  If you want to promote a website or a group and you're not sure if it's okay to do so, please get in touch with me about it before you post and I can let you know. If I don't know, I'll contact Care2 and ask them.
