RSS Feeds

ReKnew offers free headlines for personal, non-commercial use via Really Simple Syndication (“RSS”). RSS is an XML-based format for easily sharing news headlines and summaries for use in your favorite news readers and Web logs (blogs). The feeds include links back to the Site for the full article, and they update automatically.

To use RSS, you will need a special RSS news reader or aggregator that will allow you to collect and display the RSS content. ReKnew does not provide the required news reader or aggregator. There are many different news readers available, many for free. Most news readers are applications that you download and install. Others are web-based services you sign up for that work inside your browser.

These Terms of Use and ReKnew’s Privacy Policy govern your use of RSS. Any uses of RSS not granted herein are strictly prohibited. Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to, the incorporation of advertising or the placement of advertising associated with or targeted at the content of the RSS. You may not edit or modify the RSS feeds in any manner whatsoever. RSS feeds may be used only with platforms with a functional link which takes the viewer directly to the full article on the Site. You may not insert any intermediate page, splash page or any other content between the RSS link and the applicable article on the Site. ReKnew retains all ownership and other rights in the RSS content and in any and all ReKnew logos and trademarks used in connection with RSS feeds. If you provide attribution using a graphic, you must use the appropriate ReKnew logo incorporated into the RSS content or feed.

ReKnew reserves the right to cease offering any or all of the RSS feeds at any time or to require you to cease distributing any or all of the feeds at any time for any reason. ReKnew assumes no liability for your activities in connection with the RSS feeds or for your use of the feeds in connection with your website.
