Link policy for timeanddate.com

Many people have requested to link to web pages on www.timeanddate.com. The general response to this question is that you may link to www.timeanddate.com using normal links (<a href="/...">) as much as you want, so just go ahead and add a link to your favorite pages, which may include personal, organizational or commercial pages.

You may not

  • Modify the contents of the linked pages in any way without permission.
  • Link to individual images or applets (for example <a href="/image.gif"> or <img src=...> directly to an image or applet). (But you may link to a page on timeanddate.com that contains the applet/image).
  • Give the impression that the www.timeanddate.com site is part of your own website.
  • Give the impression that your website is a part of www.timeanddate.com (by using the logo or using text so the viewer would get such a impression).
  • Send any unsolicited mail (mail to people who have not signed up to a mailing list) that includes the address of any resource on the www.timeanddate.com site.

Other than these rules (which should not cause any problems for most sites), you are free to link to timeanddate.com as much as you want.

Inclusion of URL addresses in media other than the Internet

You are permitted to publish or include the address of a page on this website in a newspaper, magazine, television or radio program.

It is recommended that you choose to publish the address of one of the main pages with a simple URL, such as http://www.timeanddate.com for the main page, http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ for The World Clock and http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/ for the calendar to make it easier for your readers, viewers or listeners to find the website. However, this is simply a recommendation and what you decide to do is your choice in this regard. If the requested URL is more advanced, you are free to include it as well but please take note that it may be more difficult to use that address for your viewers/readers/listeners.

Please let us know that you are publishing the address, as it is always nice for us to know when our address is being used and published by others: webmaster@timeanddate.com
