||Some of the art used to create these graphics come from purchased graphic CDs, greeting cards, graphics in public domain on the internet and other scanned images of things I have in my home. If anyone see's anything that belongs to them, please let me know. It was not intentional. I will take it down right away. The sets on this site are free to use on personal sites. They are not for commercial use or to be split up and used or sold in any other sets. All I ask is that you include my designs button with a link to my site somewhere on your page. If you use any of my graphics, please let me know. I'd love to see your site.|
BANDWIDTH THEFT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!
WHAT IS HOT LINKING AND BANDWIDTH THEFT?
Bandwidth theft or "hot linking" is direct linking to a website's files (images, video, etc.). An example would be using an <IMG> tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone else's web page so it will appear on your own site, journal, weblog, forum posting, etc.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred from a website to a user's computer. When you view a web page, you are using that site's data transfer to display the files. Since web hosts charge based on the amount of data transferred, bandwidth is an issue. If a site is over it's monthly bandwidth, it's billed for the extra data or taken offline.
A simple analogy for bandwidth theft: Imagine a random stranger plugging into your electrical outlets, using your electricity without your consent, and you paying for it.
