While I am spending a lot of time and effort (not to mention money) to keep this site updated and make it ever more useful for you, it wouldn’t be good for me if someone would needlessly try to screw my happiness. So here is a little note to caution you on what you might already (read must) know!!!
Did you find us using your stuff? Read this…
We understand and respect your copyrights.
If your ‘file’ (by which we mean ‘your stuff’, like an image or a document) was not accessible to a regular internet surfer we would not be using it. For eg, if someone needed a password for it or needs to pay to use it, then in such cases we simply link to ‘that page’ if we find it useful for our users. However if we can access those things ourselves, without any password or payment, then you might find us keeping a copy of the file on our server.
But please allow us to clarify that under NO circumstances do we claim your hard work as ours! Unlike others who in the name of referencing (simply and lazily) just provide a generic link to your website home page, we provide a link to the exact page on your site from where we are suggesting some useful information to our users. This is helpful not only for our users but also for you, as it gets your website visitors who are actively looking for something which is already there on your website! This can hopefully bring you more business and also increase your authority rank.
The ‘technical’ reason why we may need to maintain a copy of your stuff on our server is so that when you remove it from your site or change your links structure (permalinks), it will create problems for competitiondigest.com. In fact this used to keep happening so much that several hours were wasted in just keeping a tab on broken links.
But it is your content. No doubt about that. In case you have any issue with your content and would like us credit it in a better way or even remove it. Just contact us.
