1. LINKING POLICY–NOT A PUBLIC FORUM
The Site is not a forum for public communication and debate, but a means for RTA to provide information relating to RTA data resources, programs, and projects to the public and its customers. All decisions as to the placement of links to external sites or pages from the Site will be made by RTA in its sole discretion. RTA permits links from other web sites in accordance with the following conditions:
The appearance, position and other aspects of the link may not be such as to damage or dilute the goodwill associated with RTA’s name and trademarks or be displayed in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among the public or disparage or discredit RTA;
The appearance, position and other attributes of the link may not create the false impression that an organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with or associated with RTA or that views expressed on the website are those of RTA. RTA reserves the right to require that the linking website include notice stating that it is an unofficial web site and is not endorsed by, sponsored by or affiliated with RTA and that any views expressed on the website are not those of RTA; and
When selected by a user, the link must display the Site full-screen and not within a frame on the linking website.
