Web sites and Permission

Look for information on the educational use of Internet-based materials on the web site – either stated on the web site or via a contact email provided.  Retain any record you believe gives you permission for any use such as a printout or an 'educational use permitted' statement, any correspondence granting permission. If the web site asks that you notify them if you are using their material on a web site, please do this. They are often seeking validation of the usefulness of the materials they are providing via the Internet. Your statement of use may contribute to the author's promotion and tenure.
