Umpah.com: Curation Policy

We value good content, and we will often curate or excerpt content from top quality sources on the web to share with our readers.

The very internet itself was created on the foundation of linking, sharing, and recommending good content from other sources on the web. Curation means finding good, well-written, and highly relevant material for our readers.

Should we choose to publish an excerpt of content from your website, we always encourage our readers to view the full and original content on your website with a direct link back to your source material.

Our curation is designed to send our readers to your website so you get new visitors exposed to your quality content. If on the other hand you do NOT want us to link to your website, simply contact us, and request your story be taken down and we will immediately comply with your take down request.

Our curation policy:

Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles:

  • quoted
  • commented on
  • debated
  • discussed
  • linked to
  • have new readers exposed to their articles

Social sharing of good content extends its reach, impact, traffic levels, and ultimately the profitability of the original publisher’s website.

Here is what we will never do… We will never take your entire article. We will never re-publish without giving full credit and linking to your article on your site. We will never copy your headline, we always change the headline and add additional content to the article excerpt.

If you like a story on our site, by all means feel free to excerpt it for your readers. In return please just give us clear credit by linking back to the original page on our site,

  • That is what we do.
  • That is what built the internet.
  • That is what social sharing is about.
  • Everyone benefits with shared content following this policy.

Most Importantly…

Sharing and curation and excerpting standards are still evolving online and our standards may very well differ from yours. ‘Fair Use’ standards, practices, and legal decisions are also still evolving online. We like to think our standards are a cut above the strictly legal interpretation of fair use. But if you feel your story has had too much excerpted, let us know and we will fix it rapidly.
