Posts to the Whitley Pump are already shared through Twitter and Facebook and in principle we would like to share our stories with any person or organisation who wants to promote the interests of the Katesgrove, Redlands, Whitley or south Reading area for non-commercial and non-profit reasons.
If you want to use our posts or photographs for commercial purposes please contact us at email@example.com .
Textual or photographic contributions (‘posts’) to the Whitley Pump belong to the contributor.
This means that any of your posts are already yours to do with as you wish, and you can choose whether your posts can be syndicated to anyone else.
The ownership of most textual posts is obvious; the authorship is shown at the top. Where this author is Whitley Pump, a generic username used when the real author has no login to our website, the real author is named in a byline at the top of the post itself. There are some such posts with no byline; these are usually standardised notifications such as planning applications with text taken more or less verbatim from some other place, and ownership (probably) rests with this original place.
The ownership of photographs can be obtained by viewing that photo’s attachment page, usually by clicking the photo itself. Some of our photos are taken from publicly available repositories such as Wikimedia commons, do not belong to any Whitley Pump contributors and may have their own rules for use.
RSS feeds (as well as the website URL) can be configured by the user to retrieve subsets of data. For example:
- all articles : https://whitleypump.wordpress.com/feed
- Whitley ward posts only : https://whitleypump.wordpress.com/category/whitley-ward/feed/
- Whitley ward planning posts only : https://whitleypump.wordpress.com/category/whitley-ward+planning-applications/feed/
- Whitley Pump ‘special articles’ only : https://whitleypump.wordpress.com/tag/specials/feed/
We also have a back-catalog of digital photographs (not all of which have been published) that syndication partners can use, under the same syndication agreement and conditions.
Any contributor the Whitley Pump is eligible to take advantage of this syndication agreement if he or she wishes.
Any other person or organisation can become eligible for this syndication agreement by contributing (posts, photographs, information or labour) to the Whitley Pump, or by coming to some other exchange agreement with us.
Any Whitley Pump article or photograph used elsewhere needs to be attributed to the original author and creator, and include a reference to the Whitley Pump and its URL (http://whitleypump.uk) including a hyperlink, if republished on a website.
Contributors are not obliged to share their work, and some photographers have kindly let us use their work only as long as they can control their use. Consequently, the Whitley Pump cannot offer a blanket resyndication agreement; it has to be per contributor.
The following Whitley Pump contributors have given permission for their work to be syndicated by anyone with whom we have a syndication agreement. That is, if you have a syndication agreement with us, you can use work by these contributors without further ado.
In addition, any piece of work by the generic user ‘Whitley Pump’, but with no added contributor byline (that is, the work is not identified as being ‘by’ someone else who is actually using the ‘Whitley Pump’ generic user) is available for syndication under the same conditions.
If you want to use work by other contributors, we will need to obtain their permission first.
Even if we have a syndication agreement, and the contributor has given prior permission for use, it is recommended that you inform us if you want to use work from the Whitley Pump so we can check and confirm authorship and copyright issues, just in case.

Articles republished by the Whitley Pump are excluded from syndication; permission must be sought from the source.
