The Reef Authority appreciates that people find value in our websites and that they may wish to share this information with others by providing a link on their page.

Therefore, organisations and individuals are free to include our link on their site without prior permission within the following guidelines.

Unless we enter into a specific written agreement with you, you may not use any of the Reef Authority's names, logos, designs, slogans, product trademarks or service marks in or with your links, except that you may link to a Reef Authority site using the plain text name of that site or the plain text name of the Reef Authority or the plain text page title.

Do not present the link to the Reef Authority's site in any way that suggests the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has any relationship or affiliation with your site or endorses, sponsors or recommends the information, products or services on your site without the prior express written permission for a particular use from the Reef Authority.

Do not use any of the Reef Authority's names, logos, designs, slogans, product trademarks or service marks in any advertising, publicity, promotion, or in any other commercial manner without the prior express written permission for a particular use from the Reef Authority.

Do not use any of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority's names, logos, designs, slogans, product trademark or service marks, or any other words or codes identifying the Reef Authority's web sites in any "metatags" or other information used by search engines or other information location tools to identify and select sites, without the Reef Authority's express written permission.

If your site uses frames, the Reef Authority expressly prohibits the display of any of its HTML pages within in-lines or frames of the linking website and any attempt to do so is a violation of our copyright.
