    • is pornography or erotica
    • is excessively violent, harrassment or hate speech
    • is unfair or deceptive under the consumer protection laws of any jurisdiction, including chain letters and pyramid schemes

  2. Whether using an affiliate link or not, you must not send unsolicited commercial email ("spam") that links to, promotes, or mentions LinContEx in any way. If we receive legitimate spam complaints because of emails you've sent, we will delete your account to protect ourselves.
Content License & Use
  1. You must be the legal owner of the RSS and Atom feeds you submit to LinContEx.
  2. You grant Gecko Tribe, LLC and the members of LinContEx a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to republish the content appearing in the RSS or Atom feeds that you submit to LinContEx while you are an active member, as long as it is done in accordance with these terms.
  3. Each RSS or Atom feed you submit must be unique, for example, you may not submit duplicate feeds carrying the same content in RSS 0.91, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and Atom format, or different URLs for the same feed.
  4. Your RSS to HTML converter must keep a locally cached copy of the feed data so that it does not reload the feed from LinContEx.com every time someone loads your webpage. (With CaRP, if you use the function CarpCacheShow and don't override the "cacheinterval" setting, you should be fine. If in doubt, please contact the vendor for your RSS to HTML converter).
  5. When displaying content from the RSS feeds:
    • you must display the title of each item from which you display any content, and it must be displayed as a link in a manner that is visible to search engines and which does not hinder search engines from crediting the link target for the in-bound link. (Most RSS to HTML converters will display the links this way by default.)
    • you must not truncate item titles to less than 40 charcters.
    • you may truncate item descriptions to any length you wish.
    • you may remove any or all HTML code appearing in the feed.
    • you may omit any item from the feed that you wish.
    • other than removing HTML, truncating long content, and adding HTML for formatting or hilighting purposes, you must not make any changes to the content.
  6. You may use LinContEx content only on web pages containing relatively substantial amounts of other content which is related to the topic of the LinContEx content. You may not build websites consisting entirely or primarily of LinContEx content.
  7. You may not display LinContEx content on pages that have had their PageRank revoked by Google. New pages which don't yet have PageRank are acceptable as long as they are not on penalized sites.
  8. The links in your feed must not point to pages that have had their PageRank revoked by Google.
  9. The item links in the feeds that you submit to LinContEx must link to a persistent address where the content in the item may be found (ie. they must be "permalinks"). The item links must not all be the same, and must not simply point to your homepage.
  10. Your item links may not be affiliate links. However, links appearing in your descriptions may be affiliate links.
  11. The feeds you publish must not contain HTML which could compromise the security of or override the layout of webpages on which it is displayed.
Affiliates
  1. This site is currently in a free beta period. However, we will record affiliate referrals, and affiliates will be paid residual commissions for paid services purchased by individuals they refer.
  2. Join the Gecko Tribe Affiliate Program to get your affiliate account and links.

  1. [Applicable once we begin offering paid services] If you terminate your membership within 60 days of your first payment and before making a second payment, you may request a refund of any paid time that is remaining.
