Linking Policy

Thank you to all who link to Artyfactory. We really appreciate your links which help to maintain Artyfactory as a free educational resource.


Using Our Images

If you wish to use an image from Artyfactory please observe these basic rules:

  • Ask permission.

  • Please do not link directly to the image (hotlinking) as this uses up bandwidth on our server.

  • Copy the image to your site and use it on your own server.

  • Please provide an obvious and appropriate hypertext link back to us. You can make your own link or you may copy and use the following:

  • <a href=""></a>

(hotlinking): This is bandwidth theft by direct linking to a web site's files (images, video, etc.). When you view a web page, you are using that site's bandwidth to display the files. Since web hosts charge based on the amount of data transferred, bandwidth is an issue. If a site is over its monthly bandwidth, it's billed for the extra data or taken offline. A simple analogy for 'hotlinking': Imagine a random stranger plugging into your electrical supply, using your electricity without your consent, and you paying for it.
