Linking Your Website to MHARC
The Mental Health Association of Rockland County is a non-profit community-based agency and is committed to presenting material in a nonpartisan, noncommercial manner. MHARC therefore encourages and permits links to MHARC’s website that support this mission. As such, MHARC allows external, hyper-text links to websites, provided:
(a) any text-only link must clearly be marked “MHARC”;
(b) the appearance, position and other aspects of either the link or the host website may not be such as to damage or dilute the goodwill associated with MHARC’s name and trademarks;
(c) the appearance, position and other aspects of either the link or the host website may not create the false appearance that an entity other than MHARC is associated with or sponsored by MHARC;
(d) the link, when activated by a user, must display this Website full-screen and not with a “frame” on the linked website. MHARC considers framing, the practice of intact reproduction of a page or pages of one website to another website, to be deceptive and a violation of MHARC’s copyright rights. No authorization or permission is given for framing our content, whether in whole or in part;
(e) MHARC reserves the right to revoke its consent to external links at any time at its sole discretion and require that said links are abolished; and
(f) MHARC reserves the right to require a reciprocal link to the linking site.
