Competitor Links Allowed?

Hi,

Just wondering, does anyone put links to other PODs that sell their designs on their cpshop layout? Is this allowed under Cafepress' TOS?

It was my understanding that since cpshop is hosted offsite separately from CP on your own domain etc. that you'd have the right to link to competitors that sell your designs like Zazzle etc. But I got confused when I came across this thread:
Links in Sidebar

In that thread it was said that because the offsite CP shop had the same layout as the premium store hosted on CP, they were told to remove their offsite competitor links. Or am I reading it wrong? I was planning on having pretty much the same layout on both my cpshop and premium store (so that checkout retained the same layout). But only on cpshop was I going to have a set of "Partner stores who also sell our designs" with logos for Zazzle etc. for more choice. I was going to remove those links for the Cafepress.com hosted layout.

I wanted unbiased opinion/experience on this so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks!

If the page is located at www.cafepress.com, then it cannot have links to competitors.

If the page is located on your own server, then you can.

That's pretty much it.
