This policy covers rules and circumstances under which Furkot obtains and reproduces third-party content and data.
Furkot obtains and presents factual information about places to help users plan their trips. Although facts are not protected by copyright, we link and direct users to the websites that provided the data in recognition of the effort that went into collecting and curating the content.
Factual information rendered in Furkot include place name, address, geographical coordinates, phone number, email, page location of the data, original website (if different from the website providing the data), capabilities (i.e. pets friendly or diesel available) prices and factual ratings.
Additionally Furkot may reproduce exact wording (i.e. pets allowed) when it is a short phrase utilitarian in nature and thus not protected by copyright.
When deciding on how to present factual data and accompanying links we consider input from owners of the websites the data is obtained from. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions about presenting factual data from and linking to your website in Furkot.
Furkot may also obtain and present information about places beyond strictly factual: a short snippet of place description, a brief quote of a place review, a non-factual place rating. In such case it is always a small part of the entire content of the page.
Furkot will always link to the website that provided content and make clear the snippet is not the totality of information. The rendering ensures that it does not serve as a substitute for the website providing it and encourages users to visit the linked website.
Presenting only small portion of information and directing traffic to is intended to benefit the copyright holder of the originating website. Contact us at email@example.com if you have recommendations on how to promote originated website in cases of fair use of content.
When Furkot uses non-factual content outside confines of the fair use exception, our intention is to faithfully comply with all requirements of the content license.
