We include links to both internal pages and external websites based on what is editorially relevant at the time of publishing.  These links are included for several reasons:

  1. for further relevant information or other key source material
  2. for background information
  3. for useful practical information
  4. for further informed comment.

External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, we are not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:

  1. We do not produce them or maintain/update them
  2. We  cannot change them
  3. They can be changed without our knowledge or agreement.

We link to sites purely on editorial merit. These will most often be free to access, but users may sometimes be asked to register or subscribe before viewing content.

We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind. Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases.

The inclusion of a link to an external website from our website should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site’s owners (or their products/services).

Some of the content we link to is generated by members of the public (messageboards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not ours. If you consider this content to be in breach of the house rules as indicated on the website, please alert the moderators or site owners on the sites where the material appears.

If you feel we have infringed your copyright in linking to your site, please contact us via the contact form and we will remove the link at the next update.

This policy will be updated from time to time, and the last update was in June 2019.
