Terms and Conditions
Terms & Conditions
Please read this carefully because it sets out the terms of a legally binding agreement between you and the Financial Times Limited (“FT”).
These are the terms and conditions on which you may use the Deutsche Pensions & Investmentnachrichten website at www.dpn-online.com (“dpn-online”) and the content/services available on or in the above (which we call “FT Content”). These terms apply to your use of dpn and all FT Content irrespective of the delivery platform or device you use to access it. By accessing FT Content you are agreeing to these terms and conditions. If you use dpn-online in the course of your business or work, you are also agreeing to these terms and conditions on behalf of that business. We only make these terms and conditions available in the English language.
If you do not agree with the terms and conditions (or are not authorised to do so on behalf of your business or work) you should not use dpn-online or any FT Content. If you have any questions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We recommend that you print and save a copy of these terms and conditions for your records.
Except where we state otherwise, references in these terms and conditions to “FT” (or “we”, “us” or “our”) refer to the company operating dpn-online. See Section 9 below for details.
These terms and conditions were last updated on 23 February 2012 and replace all previous terms and conditions for dpn-online. FT may update these terms and conditions for legal or regulatory reasons, or to reflect changes in our services or business practices. We will provide notice of such changes in Section 10 below and if you are a registered user we will also email you to notify you of any material change that affects you. You should regularly check Section 10 to see if any changes have been made. Any changes will become effective as soon as we notify you of them.
We may in exceptional circumstances cease to publish dpn-online. If we do so, then we will have no further obligation to you.
2. Access and Use
Our ability to invest in high quality journalism depends on our users complying with this Section 2. We recommend that you also read our Copyright Policy that summarises how you are allowed to use FT Content. It also invites organisations that may be using FT Content without the appropriate permissions to approach us with a view to discussing the purchase of a licence to legitimise that use.
The amount of FT Content that you can view on dpn-online depends on what type of user you are. If you are an unregistered user, you can view up to 3 articles every 28 days, if you are a registered user you can view all of our articles.
Permitted Use: All FT Content belongs to FT or its licensors who own all intellectual property rights (including copyright and database rights) in the FT Content and any selection or arrangement of the FT Content. “FT” and “Financial Times” are registered trade marks and you may not use them without written permission from FT. You can do the following:
- view FT Content for your personal use on any device that is compatible with dpn-online (this might be your PC, laptop, Blackberry, iPhone or other mobile device) and store FT Content on that device for your personal use.
- print single copies of articles on paper for your personal use.
- share links to articles by using the article tools we make available at the foot of each article.
- use spidering technology to search and link to dpn-online, provided that you do not infringe the Restrictions on Use below.
On condition that you do not create a Substitute (as defined below), you may also do the following:
- Publish online, the original headlines and a link to the article (on dpn-online) and the first 140 characters of an article.
- Forward the original headline and a link to an FT article (on dpn-online) and the first 140 characters of an article to other individuals.
- Download our RSS feeds and view them for your personal use in accordance with the terms set out at [RSS] and in our Copyright Policy.
We define a Substitute as a product or service that reduces the need for users or other third parties to pay for FT Content directly, or which creates revenue from the FT Content to the detriment of FT’s own ability to generate revenues from that content.
As specified in the “Restrictions on Use” section below you may not republish or redistribute full text articles. You may however republish or redistribute “Summaries” of articles from dpn-online if you comply with the conditions set out below. “Summaries” can be either an “extract” or an “abstract”. By “extract” we mean 30 words copied verbatim from an article which are inserted into a longer original work. By “abstract” we mean a 30 word non-verbatim summary of the news or facts reported in an article which does not form part of a longer work.
These are the conditions you must comply with in order to produce summaries:
- you source dpn-online as the author of any article from which you have derived a summary by way of an attribution such as “[journalist name] at dpn-online reported that”, with a hypertext link from the word “dpn-online” to the original story published on dpn-online;
- in the case of abstracts, you make clear that the abstract has been produced by you by stating “this abstract from dpn-online was produced by [name]”, with a hypertext link from the word “dpn-online” to the original story published on dpn-online.com;
- you ensure that your summaries do not in whole or in part form a Substitute for dpn-online’s own products and services (see above for how we define Substitute). The more summaries you create the greater the risk of substitution. No individual or organisation may create, republish or redistribute more than ten summaries in aggregate each day, each one sourced from a different article that is published on the same day you create the summary;
- you do not use or create summaries that promote or endorse any product or service; and
- if FT notifies you that it believes you are creating, republishing or redistributing summaries outside of these parameters, you shall immediately cease doing so and your rights to create summaries shall be regarded as having been withdrawn, unless/until FT reaches an agreement with you regarding your use of FT Content.
Please note that these rights do not extend to content published by FT that we licence from third parties which you may not republish or redistribute in whole or in part.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ADDITION TO OUR RIGHTS AT LAW TO RESTRICT CERTAIN TYPES OF USE REFERRED TO IN THIS SECTION 2, THE RESTRICTIONS BELOW ARE ALSO CONTRACTUAL IN NATURE AND BIND ALL USERS OF DPN-ONLINE.
Restrictions on Use: You cannot use dpn-online or the FT Content for any unlawful purpose or other than as set out in the “Permitted Use” section above, unless you buy the appropriate licence from us. By way of example only, this means that you cannot:
- if you are a registered user or have a temporary access pass, you cannot share your user name and password (which includes PINS) with anyone else. A password is for one person’s use. Sharing a password means a copy of the FT Content may subsequently be made by someone who is not authorised to do so. Password sharing is a breach of our terms and conditions and is likely to result in an infringement of copyright. We monitor usage of dpn-online to detect password sharing.
- copy, publish, republish or redistribute, communicate or disseminate to third parties full text articles, photographs, graphics, tables or images in any way.
- copy, publish, republish or redistribute headlines in any way other than as permitted by the “Permitted Use” section above (including as part of any syndication, content aggregation, news aggregation, library, archive or similar service).
- archive or store any of the FT Content for access by anyone other than yourself.
- create derivative works from the FT Content, unless you are creating summaries as described in the “Permitted Use” section above.
- photocopy or scan copies of articles.
- remove the copyright or trade mark notice from any copies of FT Content made under these terms and conditions.
- create a database in electronic or structured manual form by systematically and/or regularly downloading, caching, printing and storing all or any of the FT Content (by spidering or otherwise).
- frame, harvest or scrape the FT Content or otherwise access the FT Content for similar purposes.
- use or attempt to use the FT Content outside the parameters we set depending on what subscription you have.
Linking: A site or service that links to dpn-online must not in any way imply that FT is endorsing it or its products or services; must not misrepresent its relationship with FT or present false information about FT; must not be a site or service that infringes any intellectual property or other right of any person or that otherwise does not comply with all relevant laws and regulations; and must not be a site or service that contains content that could be construed as distasteful or offensive.
On registration, you must provide FT with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to update and maintain changes to that information on the applicable dpn-online registration pages. FT is entitled to rely on any information you provide to us.
Each registration is for a single user only. On registration, you will choose an email address and password (“ID”). You are not allowed to share your ID or give access to FT Content through your ID to anyone else. FT does not allow multiple users on a network or within an organisation to use the same ID. FT may cancel or suspend your access to dpn-online if you share your ID without further obligation to you. You may not create additional registration accounts for the benefit of others or with the aim of avoiding our use of IDs to control access to and use of dpn-online.
You are responsible for all use of dpn-online made by you or anyone else using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify FT immediately by e-mailing us at email@example.com. We recommend that you do not select an obvious user password (such as your name) and that you change it regularly.
If you provide FT with an email address that will result in any messages FT may send you being sent to you via a network or device operated or owned by a third party (e.g. your employer or college) then you promise that you are entitled to receive those messages. You also agree that FT may stop sending messages to you without notifying you.
If you are a registered user of dpn-online then you may choose to use the “Keep me logged in at this machine” feature that enables you to be logged in automatically to dpn-online whenever you visit it without having to manually log in each time. We recommend that you do not enable this feature on any computer that is or may be used by anyone other than you in order to prevent unauthorized access by third parties to both your registration details and features of dpn-online personal to you.
4. User Generated Content
Dpn-online includes discussion forums and blogs that allow interaction between users and between users and journalists (we call these “Forums”). We call the information posted to these forums or blogs by users “User Generated Content” or “UGC”.
If you wish to view or participate in a Forum then you must comply with any specific rules posted on the Forum. You will retain ownership of the copyright in any of your UGC that you or we publish on dpn-online so you are free to re-use it as you wish. You agree that if you post UGC to a Forum then you are granting FT a right (but not an obligation) unlimited in time to publish, re-use, archive, modify, delete or commercially exploit that UGC in whole or in part as we see fit, whether on dpn-online or otherwise, without any requirement to pay you for this and with or without attribution to you. This means that you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free licence to use any UGC you publish in whole or in part in any manner and for any purpose whatsoever and without further obligation to you. You also waive any moral rights that you may have in regard to the UGC.
You are responsible for all the content of any of your UGC that you or we publish. You are financially responsible to us for any claim against us by any third party that your UGC is not in accordance with the bullet points below or that otherwise relates to your UGC.
You agree that you will:
- only publish UGC that is your original content and will not infringe the copyright or other rights of any third party when publishing UGC.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UGC containing any form of advertising or promotion for goods and services or any spam or other form of unsolicited communication.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UGC with recommendations to buy or not buy a particular share or other investment or which contain confidential information of another party or which otherwise have the purpose of affecting the price or value of any share or other investment.
- not post, link to or otherwise publish any UGC that is threatening, abusive, libelous, indecent or otherwise unlawful.
- not disguise the origin of any UGC and not impersonate any person or entity (including FT employees or Forum guests or hosts) or misrepresent any connection with any person or entity.
- not post or otherwise publish any UGC unrelated to the Forum or the Forum’s topic.
- not post or transmit any UGC that contains software viruses, files or code designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of an FT Website or any computer software or equipment.
- not collect or store other users’ personal data.
- not restrict or inhibit any other user from using the Forums.
The Forums contain UGC submitted by users over whom FT has no control so we cannot therefore guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any UGC. Some users may not behave properly and may post UGC that is misleading, untrue or offensive.
It is not possible for FT to fully monitor all UGC published on the FT Websites but where we have actually received notice of any UGC that is potentially misleading, untrue, offensive, unlawful, infringes third party rights or is potentially in breach of these terms and conditions, then we will review that UGC, decide whether to remove it from dpn-online and act accordingly. If you believe that any UGC published on dpn-online infringes any legal rights that you may have or is not allowed under these terms and conditions, please notify us immediately with specific details by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Third Party Sites and Services
dpn-online may contain links to other Internet websites or online and mobile services provided by independent third parties, including websites of our advertisers and sponsors (what we call “Third Party Sites”), either directly or through frames. Third Party Sites may be co-branded with FT and so include FT’s trade marks.
dpn-online contains advertising and sponsorship. Advertisers and sponsors are responsible for ensuring that material submitted for inclusion on dpn-online complies with international and national law. FT is not responsible for any error or inaccuracy in advertising or sponsorship material.
Copyright in any software that is made available for download from dpn-online belongs to FT or its suppliers. Your use of the software is governed by the terms of any licence agreement that may accompany or be included with the software. Do not install or use any of this software unless you agree to such licence agreement. FT is not responsible for any technical or other issues that may happen if you download third party software.
6. Our Responsibilities To You
A summary of what this section means: this section is important and you should read it carefully. It makes clear to what extent, if any, FT accepts responsibility (liability) to you for your use of dpn-online or the FT Content or in respect of any third party products or services that we refer to or link to on dpn-online. We accept no financial responsibility to you arising from your use of dpn-online or the FT Content. In no circumstances do we accept responsibility for your use of Third Party Sites or in respect of any Third Party Products. By Third Party Sites we mean websites, online or mobile services provided by third parties, including websites of advertisers and sponsors that may appear on dpn-online. By Third Party Products we mean products or services provided by third parties. Although this means that we accept very little in the way of financial responsibility for your use of dpn-online and the FT Content, we think this is fair on the basis that you can view content and services free-of-charge. It is not commercially possible for us to accept more responsibility for your use of dpn-online than set out in this Section 5 taking into account that we permit you to use dpn-online for no cost.
Limitations of FT Content: the FT Content (including any information we publish regarding Third Party Products) is only for your general information and entertainment purposes and is not intended to address your particular requirements. In particular, the FT Content, including any other content provided by third parties and distributed by dpn-online, does not constitute any form of advice, recommendation, representation, endorsement or arrangement by FT. It is not intended to be and should not be relied upon by users in making (or refraining from making) any specific investment, purchase, sale or other decisions. Appropriate independent advice should be obtained before making any such decision, such as from a qualified financial adviser. Any agreements, transactions or other arrangements made between you and any third party named on (or linked to from) dpn-online are at your own responsibility and entered into at your own risk. Any information that you receive via dpn-online, whether or not it is classified as “real time”, may have stopped being current by the time it reaches you. Share price information may be rounded up/down and therefore may not be entirely accurate.
What we promise: FT WILL TRY TO DEVELOP AND OPERATE DPN-ONLINE WITH REASONABLE SKILL AND CARE AND WILL USE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROMPTLY REMEDY ANY FAULTS OF WHICH IT IS AWARE. THIS IS THE ONLY PROMISE WE MAKE IN RELATION TO OUR PROVISION OF DPN-ONLINE AND THE FT CONTENT.
What we do not promise: BY WAY OF EXAMPLE, THIS MEANS THAT DPN-ONLINE AND THE FT CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. THIS MEANS THAT FT DOES NOT MAKE ANY PROMISES IN RESPECT OF DPN-ONLINE OR THE SERVICES AND FUNCTIONS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH DPN-ONLINE OR OF THE QUALITY, COMPLETENESS OR ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION PUBLISHED ON OR LINKED TO FROM DPN-ONLINE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FT DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS AND DUTIES (EXCEPT ANY DUTIES OF GOOD FAITH) OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FT ALSO DOES NOT MAKE ANY PROMISES AS TO THE TIMELINESS, SECURITY, PERFORMANCE OR AVAILABILITY OF DPN-ONLINE AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION THAT DPN-ONLINE IS FREE FROM INFECTION BY VIRUSES OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT HAS CONTAMINATING OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES.
THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS APPLY EQUALLY TO YOUR USE OF DPN-ONLINE AND ALL FT CONTENT. WITHOUT LIMITING THE ABOVE, FT IS NOT LIABLE FOR MATTERS BEYOND ITS REASONABLE CONTROL. FT DOES NOT CONTROL THIRD PARTY COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS (INCLUDING YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER), THE INTERNET, ACTS OF GOD OR THE ACTS OF THIRD PARTIES.
Our financial responsibility to you: YOU AGREE THAT IF WE ARE IN BREACH OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, WE WILL ONLY BE RESPONSIBLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES THAT YOU INCUR ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF DPN-ONLINE OR THE FT CONTENT (TO THE EXTENT THAT FT’S LIABILITY IS NOT OTHERWISE EXCLUDED BY THIS SECTION 5) AS FOLLOWS:
- IF YOU INCUR ANY LOSS AS A RESULT OF USING DPN-ONLINE OR ANY FT CONTENT OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, FT ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY (LIABILITY) TO YOU FOR THIS.
- FT ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY (LIABILITY) TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF DPN-ONLINE OR THE FT CONTENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION 5 APPLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF FT, ITS AFFILIATES AND ALL OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.
Notwithstanding anything else in this Section 5, FT’s liability will not be limited in the case of death or personal injury directly caused by FT’s negligence in those countries where it is unlawful for FT to seek to exclude such liability.
7. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction
These terms and conditions are subject to English law and the courts of England will (subject to the final paragraph in this Section 7) have non-exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these terms and conditions.
For the exclusive benefit of FT and to the extent possible in the applicable jurisdiction, FT will retain the right to bring or enforce proceedings as to the substance of the matter in the courts of the country of your residence or, where these terms and conditions are entered into in the course of your trade or profession, the country of the place of business in which you agreed to these terms and conditions or (if different) the country of your principal place of business.
You may not license or transfer any of your rights under these terms and conditions. We may transfer any of our rights or obligations under these terms and conditions to any company within the Financial Times group of companies but if we do so we will ensure that any company to whom we transfer our rights or obligations will continue to honour your rights under them.
If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these terms and conditions, which will remain in full force and effect.
Failure by either party to exercise any right or remedy under these terms and conditions does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy. Headings in these terms and conditions are for convenience only and will have no legal meaning or effect.
dpn-online is best viewed with one of our supported browsers. Our current list of supported browsers and the degree to which they are supported can be found here.

10. Changes to Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions were published on 23 February 2012.
© THE FINANCIAL TIMES LTD 2011 FT and 'Financial Times' are trademarks of The Financial Times Ltd.
Our terms and conditions set out the detail of what you can and cannot do with our content and all use of dpn-online.com (“dpn-online”) is subject to them. This copyright policy summarises how users are permitted to use our content and also explains the types of use that require the purchase of additional licences. Thank you for reading this policy, our ability to invest in high quality journalism depends on our users complying with it. We reserve the right to change our copyright policy from time to time by publishing an updated policy on dpn-online, which shall become effective and replace any previous policy with effect from publication. This version of the copyright policy was published on 4 April 2011.
What is copyright?
Copyright law gives the copyright owner the exclusive right to control the use of copyright protected works. All of the material published on dpn-online and other digital/wireless platforms is protected by copyright law and should only be used as set out in the “How may I use dpn-online content?” section below. Use that is made without our permission may therefore infringe our copyright which can result in personal and corporate liability. Where we state below that something is not allowed or permitted, then to do so is a breach of our terms and conditions, i.e. is a breach of contract, and may also violate copyright law.
How may I use dpn-online content?
You may do the following:
- View our content for your personal use on any device that is compatible with dpn-online (this might be your PC, laptop, Blackberry, iPhone or other mobile device) and store our content on that device for your personal use;
- Print single copies of articles on paper for your personal use;
- Share links to articles by using the article tools we make available at the foot of each article.
How may I republish or redistribute FT content on dpn-online?
You may not copy FT content from dpn-online or any third party source of FT content such as news aggregators and you may not republish or redistribute full text articles, for example by pasting them into emails or republishing them in any media, including websites, newsletters or intranets. Full text means the whole article.
We recognise that users of the Internet want to share information with others. We therefore permit limited republishing and redistribution of FT content as set out below provided that this does not create a Substitute for FT’s own products or services. We define a Substitute as a product or service that reduces the need for users or other third parties to pay for FT content directly, or which creates revenue from the FT’s content to the detriment of FT’s own ability to generate revenues from that content.
As long as you do not create a Substitute, you may do the following:
- Publish online, the original headline and a link to the article and the first 140 characters of an article (what we call teaser text);
- Forward the original headlines, links and teaser text to other individuals;
- You may download our RSS feeds and view them for your personal use. We currently publish headlines and teaser text within our RSS feeds. You may also make an RSS feed available to third parties, users within an organisation you work for or users of a website that you publish, on condition that you:
- only publish the feed for access via a web-based browser.
- publish the feed as it is made available on dpn-online, so that you only include the headline and teaser content, and ensure that the headline links back to the full text article on dpn-online.
- attribute the feed to the FT as “© The Financial Times Limited [year]”.
- do not archive the feed or any of its content.
Am I allowed to copy or summarise limited parts of FT full text content?
As specified above you may not republish or redistribute full text articles. You may however republish or redistribute ”Summaries” of FT articles if you comply with the conditions set out below. “Summaries” can be either an “extract” or an “abstract”. By “extract” we mean 30 words copied verbatim from an FT article which are inserted into a longer original work . By “abstract” we mean a 30 word non-verbatim summary of the news or facts reported in an FT article which does not form part of a longer work.
These are the conditions you must comply with in order to produce summaries:
- you source FT as the author of any article from which you have derived a summary by way of an attribution such as “[journalist name] at [dpn-online] reported that”, with a hypertext link to the original story published on dpn-online;
- in the case of abstracts, you make clear that the abstract has been produced by you by stating “this abstract from [dpn-online] was produced by [name]”, with a hypertext link to the original story published on dpn-online;
- you ensure that your summaries do not in whole or in part form a Substitute for FT’s own products and services (see above for how we define Substitute). The more summaries you create the greater the risk of substitution. No individual or organisation may create, republish or redistribute more than ten summaries in aggregate each day, each one sourced from a different article on dpn-online that is published on the same day you create the summary;
- you do not use or create summaries that promote or endorse any product or service; and
- if FT notifies you that it believes you are creating, republishing or redistributing summaries outside of these parameters, you shall immediately cease doing so and your rights to create summaries shall be regarded as having been withdrawn, unless/until FT reaches an agreement with you regarding your use of FT articles.
Please note that these rights do not extend to content published by FT that we licence from third parties which you may not republish or redistribute.
What am I not permitted to do with FT content?
You cannot do anything other than make use of the content as set out above. By way of example only, this means that you cannot:
- If you are a registered user, share your user name and password (which includes PINs) with anyone else. A password is for one person’s use. Sharing a password means a copy of our content may subsequently be made by someone who is not authorised to do so. Password sharing is a breach of our terms and conditions and is likely to result in an infringement of copyright. We monitor usage to detect password sharing.
- Copy, publish or redistribute full text articles, photographs, graphics, tables or images in any way.
- Archive or store any of our content for access by anyone other than yourself.
- Create derivative works from our content, unless you are creating summaries as described above.
- Photocopy or scan copies of articles.
I thought that as long as I linked back to your website or published an attribution, that there are no restrictions on how I can use your content?
This is not correct. Merely providing a link or an attribution is not a defence to copyright infringement.
Why does it matter if I copy content from dpn-online without permission?
Unauthorised copying is a way of avoiding paying for the value you are gaining by using the content. We make a significant investment in creating FT content to deliver value to you and to make a return on that investment. If we are unable to protect that investment by licensing our content and collecting revenue, then it threatens our ability to continue to create the content.
What about “fair dealing” or “fair use” – doesn’t that allow me to copy things for the purpose of reporting news or current events?
Copyright law does allow, to a limited extent, republication for certain limited purposes, including the reporting of news or current events. We recommend that you take independent legal advice on the exact meaning of these terms if you want to rely on them. Unless your use of our content is permitted by this Copyright Policy, it is likely that we regard it as “unfair” and a breach of our terms and conditions.
But I need to use dpn-online.com to do my job and I already use it in the way you say I can’t. Do I have to stop?
Yes, you do. It’s likely that both you and your company are legally responsible if you are using dpn-online to do your job in a manner that we do not permit.
May I scrape dpn-online and republish headlines as part of a commercial service?
Is all material published on dpn-online.com protected by copyright?
Yes, it is, so is all of the content we publish in our newspaper, magazines, digital, mobile applications etc., and so is FT content published on third party platforms. Our content is also protected in other ways, for example, protected as a database by way of database rights.
Does that mean that FT owns all of the material?
We own most of it, and what we don’t own ourselves we ensure we obtain the appropriate rights, permissions or licences to re-use. If you believe that we are using your content without your consent, please email us at email@example.com so we can investigate this.
I have some questions about your policy, who should I contact?
Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
