When self-archiving a paper, the Author should clearly declare that the archived file is not the final published version of the paper, he/she should quote the correct citation and enclose a link to the published paper ([DOI of the Article without brackets]).
The final published version of the paper can also be used and circulated privately (by sending it for example to colleagues or students) but the authors are not allowed to make it publicly available.
