External linking

How links are chosen for Info Daily News

Info Daily News includes links to both internal (Info Daily News) and external (non-Info Daily News) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.

These links are chosen for a number of reasons, including:

•             for further relevant information or other key source material

•             for background information

•             for useful practical information

•             for entertainment or enjoyment

•             for further informed comment

We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind.

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.

The Info Daily News team selects links and evaluates websites on the basis of editorial relevance.

Links to external websites

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

•             the Info Daily News does not produce them or maintain/update them

•             the Info Daily News cannot change them

•             they can be changed without the Info Daily News editorial team’s knowledge or agreement.

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 infodailynews.com should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site’s owners (or their products/services).

Links to user generated material

Some of the content we link to on both Info Daily News sites and external ones is generated by members of the public (message boards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of the Info Daily News. 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.

Signposts and content information

Increasingly, infodailynews.com is making more video and audio content available online (via a video or radio player). The Info Daily News online guidelines state:

•             Any material on the Info Daily News homepage must be suitable for a general audience including children.

•             The first click from the Info Daily News homepage should not normally lead straight to a page which includes material which is unsuitable for a general audience. Where appropriate, users are informed of the nature of the material they might expect to see or hear by clear labelling on destination pages and on the video or radio players.
