3. Ownership of Content
GBAF’s ability to publish the GBAF Website and to invest in professional financial journalism depends on our users complying with this Paragraph 3.
All GBAF Content is owned by GBAF or its licensors who between them own all intellectual property rights (including copyright and database rights) in the GBAF Content and any arrangement thereof. You may not reproduce GBAF Content without GBAF’s written permission.
If you wish to reproduce GBAF Content please contact us for an appropriate license.
However, you are welcome to read GBAF Content for your personal use on any device that is compatible with the GBAF Website and you may store GBAF Content on that device for your personal use. You may also print single hard copies of articles for your personal use.
You may not republish or redistribute full text articles without a licence from us. You may, however, republish or redistribute “Summaries” of articles from the GBAF Website so long as a prominent credit is given to GBAF on such Summaries indicating that GBAF is the original source of the material contained therein.
“Summaries” can be either an “extract” or an “abstract”. An “extract” means up to 200 words copied verbatim from an article which are inserted into a longer original work. An “abstract” means a non-verbatim summary of the news or facts reported in an article forming part of GBAF Content which does not form part of a longer work.

The GBAF Website may contain links to other Internet websites or online and mobile services provided by GBAF or by independent third parties, including websites of our advertisers and sponsors (so-called “Third Party Sites”).
Some of these links may generate revenue for us at the time they are clicked on or if someone subsequently uses the services of that Third Party. All links are provided because we believe they may be of interest to you and are made available on the GBAF Website for your convenience only.
We do not endorse or recommend any Third Party Sites or their contents and it is your decision whether or not you purchase or use any third party products or services made available on or via Third Party Sites and you should read paragraph 7 below very carefully.
