  • Give the impression that timeanddate.com is part of your own website.
  • Give the impression that your website is a part of timeanddate.com (e.g. by using our logo to create that impression).
  • Send any unsolicited mail (spam) that includes the address of any resource on timeanddate.com.


Please feel free to mention our website or one of our services in a newspaper, magazine, television, or radio program.
