Sometimes you may come across Content that you find interesting. We have made it possible for you to easily share it with others, but we don’t pay for any sharing that you may choose to do.
Content that you can share will have a “Share” button near to it with favicon buttons for you to email or post such Content to your social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc) When you share Content on such social media platforms, their terms will also apply to you. Those terms will be different from these here. Take time to read through them to properly understand what you are getting into.

(b) make sure the Content is displayed accurately; and
(c) include a credit of the source (if it does not already have one).
You should not:
