By accessing the website at https://thinkpragati.com, you are agreeing to all these terms. If you don’t agree, please close your browser window or visit another site.
Copyright and use
All materials on this site, unless noted otherwise, are the copyright of Pragati. Feel free to read them, download for personal use, and pass the URLs around. But don’t post them elsewhere or copy parts of it to use on your own. “Fair use” like quoting parts of it for citations or critique is allowed. Linking to our site and articles is always welcome.
We hope you find the articles on this site useful, but we don’t guarantee that they’re suitable for anything specific. We carry a variety of views and opinions. Publishing a piece doesn’t mean the editors or publisher necessarily endorse that view. And while we’d love to keep the site running and working fine all the time, there might be bugs and downtime occasionally.
Continuing from the last point, we bear absolutely no liability, legal or otherwise, for what might happen if you use the material from the site for anything other than reading. We are also not liable for any consequences of bugs and downtime of the site.
Accuracy of material
We take our editorial role very seriously, but we’re human and will not guarantee that all our material, photos, and other content are accurate, complete or current. If we spot mistakes, we try to correct them, of course.
We link to third-party sites from time to time. We don’t endorse any of those sites. We also are not responsible for or in control of their contents.
We may carry advertisements on our website. We do not endorse the products or services in those ads. We are not liable for any actions of companies providing them. Always check the fine print when dealing with a third party.
Image use and licencing
Images used on this site are used as per the licencing requirements of the original source. We will provide attribution for all images that require it (for instance, Creative Commons), either as an image caption or at the end of posts. Images allowed for commercial use without attribution may be used without any such attribution. We trust well-known stock photo sites that they are authorised to carry their images. If you are the original author of your image and you find it’s been used without permission, please contact us.
We do not own any data, information or material that you submit to us in the course of using the site. You are responsible and liable for the accuracy and legality of what you post. By posting on the site, you are guaranteeing that everything you wrote is your intellectual property and is not infringing on someone else’s copyright.
Because we need to display your content on the site, you agree to give us permission to access, copy, distribute, store, transmit, reformat, display and perform your content.
We don’t guarantee that anything you post will be displayed on the site. For instance, we reserve the right to delete any comments on our content.
You know hacking into systems is a crime, right? You’re welcome to read the material on our site, but any attempt to illegally gain unauthorised access to our systems, servers, or other devices will get you reported to the police. We may also take legal action against you in civil court for damages.
We might revise this policy in the future. If so, we’ll post an update date at the top of this page. We might also send you an email about it.
These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of India and you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in India.
