Links to the WNO web site

In line with established Internet usage, any external web site may provide a hyperlink to the WNO web site or to any of its pages without requesting permission. However this use must not infringe WNO’s intellectual property rights, in particular relating to its name, emblem, copyright or authors’ rights. A link to the WNO web site must be used for information only, and not for the promotion of any organisation, product or service. A link to the WNO web site does not, and should not, imply any association between WNO and the owner of the linking site. The WNO emblem may not be used in providing a link.

Hyperlinks to the WNO web site should be to the WNO home page (http://www.wno.org) or to complete pages that can be reached via navigation from the WNO home page. Links should not be made to an individual constituent of a page, for example text, picture or graphic. Our preference is that links should not be made direct to files that are available for download, for example pdf files, but to the web page from where you are able to download the files.

Links from the WNO web site

Because a link from the WNO web site may be interpreted as an endorsement by WNO of everything on the site to which the link leads, WNO does not normally provide such links unless there is a clear association with WNO’s activities. The WNO web site may from time to time have some exceptions to this rule for specific purposes, but links from WNO are normally reserved for the web sites of institutions or organizations with which WNO works closely. The provision of a link from the WNO website to other sites does not indicate endorsement of those sites by WNO, and WNO accepts no responsibility for the validity or accuracy of their content.
