Web Links from JRCERT
This section outlines the criteria and requirements that external Websites must meet to have a web link on the JRCERT Website. It also details how web links are accepted and removed from the JRCERT Website.
The JRCERT reserves the right to web link to external Websites that it feels would provide a service or otherwise be of value to constituents.
The JRCERT web links to commercial, federal, state, and local governments that provide information and services that benefit its constituents. At its discretion, the JRCERT will consider web link requests to non-governmental Websites that contain information and/or services that furthers the purpose of JRCERT, including sites of JRCERT-contracted vendors, relevant medical, educational and accreditation-related associations and timely and relevant information publications.
The JRCERT Website is not a forum for public communication and debate. The criteria outlined in this section have been established to ensure that the JRCERT Website remains a non-public forum.
Every web link request must undergo review to determine its relevance and appropriateness to the purpose of JRCERT. Web links are approved for the JRCERT based on the following criteria:
- The purpose of the external Website is consistent with the purpose of JRCERT
- The site’s content is appropriate with respect to the purpose of JRCERT and the site is not a site that:
- exhibits hate, bias, discrimination, pornography, libelous or otherwise defamatory content; and
- advocates or promotes the use of alcohol or tobacco.
The JRCERT reserves the right to deny web links if it determines that a Website contains misleading or unsubstantiated claims, conflicts with the purpose of JRCERT, or does not meet one or more of the criteria set forth above in numbered sections or set out below in the section on Conditions for web link Maintenance on JRCERT.
- Email web link requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating “web link Request” in the subject line. Each web link request should address how the site meets the two acceptance criteria outlined above.
- The web link request will be reviewed against the acceptance criteria set forth above. The decision of the JRCERT General Counsel is final as to whether the requesting site may have a web link from JRCERT.
- Approved sites must comply with the following conditions for web link maintenance and may be required to enter into a written web linking agreement with JRCERT.

- The web linked site must provide the user with access to an email address and/or a telephone number for the customer service contact so that users may contact the site if there are problems with format or accuracy.
- Web linked sites should not excessively burden the JRCERT customer support system. If the site excessively burdens the JRCERT customer support system, the JRCERT has discretion to take the web linked site off of the JRCERT Website.
- When the user clicks on the external website web link, he/she must have easy access back to the JRCERT Website. One of two options can accomplish this:

- The “Browser Back” button returns the use to the JRCERT Website.
- Web linked sites must have privacy and security policies accessible from their home page informing the user of what information is collected by the web linked site, how it is collected, and how it is used.

Web links from the JRCERT will be reviewed regularly and may be removed for the following reasons:
- The web link no longer points to the original information or resource to which it was intended to point;
- The Website pointed to by the web link contains inaccurate or misleading information or has changed such that it is no longer in compliance with the acceptance criteria;
