Media policies (audio, pictures, and video)
Pet-Snakes.com makes use of various media to enhance our visitors enjoyment of the site. One such example is the small YouTube video unit we run in the right sidebar. We look for meaningful YouTube content that is well done, educational, fun, and of course relevant to the topic of keeping snakes as pets. When we find those kinds of videos we embed them into this web page along with others and set them up to play randomly.

If you do not want your YouTube videos being displayed here or elsewhere you will need to turn off the embed feature in your YouTube control panel. You do this under the broadcast options settings. By taking this step it will block the video from being displayed anywhere except on YouTube itself. The alternative method is to let us know and within a week we will remove the link to the video(s) you specify. Please provide the video ID which can be found by looking at the link to the video. In the link you’ll see =XXXXXXXXX where the X’s represent numbers and letters. We need everything after the equals sign.

We have also made the decision to embed an audio cast called Reptile Radio. It will play the most recent episode of the show. If you find the show enjoyable stop by and let the folks who make it know at www.reptileradio.net

We use pictures from various source, some our own collections, some from people who have been kind enough to give us permission, and finally some that are found under the Creative Commons License. If you find a picture on this site that you believe is not allowed to be used please contact us with the following information:

  • Entire url of page you found the picture on
  • The url of the picture itself

Finally regarding video and audio embedding please keep in mind that embedding your videos only helps you out by providing a link to your profile on YouTube so people can watch more of what you have to offer. It is really a win/win situation as you provide us with some content and we provide you with some traffic.
