Links to websites
It is usually acceptable to include links to a website's homepage, unless a statement on the site says otherwise. However, you should not use the website's logos or other branding as linking icons, unless you have explicit permission from the publisher (the person, or body who created the web pages).
Deep linking, linking to parts of a website under or beyond the website's homepage, is generally not allowed by law, particularly where this would bypass branding, sponsorship, legal or policy information. You should not include deep links within Moodle, unless you have explicit permission from the publisher, or a policy statement on the website allows it.

You cannot upload copies of web page material unless you have explicit permission from the publisher (the person, or body who created the material contained on the web pages), or a copyright statement or licence on the web pages specifically permits this.
