External Linking Policy

 
Linking to CUHSD or CUHSD-related Websites
 
Advance permission to link to Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD.org) or CUHSD-related sites is not necessary. Be aware that CUHSD or CUHSD-related site subpages may change or be deleted at any time without notice. Entities and individuals linking to CUHSD.org are encouraged to verify link accuracy periodically. 
 
Entities and individuals linking to CUHSD.org or CUHSD-related sites shall not capture CUHSD pages within frames, present CUHSD content as its own, or otherwise misrepresent CUHSD content. They shall not misinform users about the origin or ownership of CUHSD content, or in any way attempt to modify the content and present it as the content of CUHSD.org or CUHSD-related sites. They shall not express or imply that CUHSD endorses an external site without CUHSD’s expressed approval. 
 
Site owners should not link to individual image, data, sound, or movie files in an effort to place the downloading burden on the CUHSD servers.
 
Some information on CUHSD.org or CUHSD-related sites may be protected by trademark and copyright laws and otherwise protected as intellectual property. Protected intellectual property must be used in accordance with state and federal laws and must reflect the proper ownership of the intellectual property.
 
Any link to the CUHSD or CUHSD-related site should be a full forward link that passes the client browser to CUHSD.org without barriers. The "back" button should return the visitor to the original external site if the visitor wishes to leave the CUHSD site.
 
 
Linking to External Web Sites from CUHSD or CUHSD-related Websites
 
CUHSD reserves the right to link to external websites that would provide a service to the CUHSD community. Upon leaving CUHSD.org and linking to an external site, the policies governing CUHSD.org no longer apply and users are subject to the external site’s policies. Questions and concerns regarding the information or services provided by a linked site should be directed to the entity or individual responsible for that site, rather than to CUHSD.
