This is a template linking policy. It has been designed to help those website operators who wish to set out in detail their policies and practices on hyperlinking.
The policy may be used to state both a website's policy for linking out as well expectations in relation to incoming links. However, unless a linking policy forms part of an enforceable contract, the provisions in relation to incoming links at least are unlikely to be enforceable.
Although this sort of policy is unusual, it can still be useful on certain types of site.
