A Note on Plagiarism

Plagiarism is not tolerated.

The content we produce is original and 100% unique. Since a majority of this content is published online, nothing can be similar, duplicated, or plagiarized in any way. Search engines like Google will not index any information that looks duplicated or similar in any form into their search index. In many cases, Google will also penalize and punish websites for duplicate content or copy, even if it is a small portion of the content.
