In more general terms, links to the 'Tourism Business Portal' website can be created from any website provided that the following conditions are met:

  • links should be illustrated with official logos and/or trademarks owned and/or licensed by the European institutions and should comply with the instructions provided in the Information Providers Guide. If logos or trademarks cannot be used, textual links are also allowed (for example: "Further information is available from the 'Tourism Business Portal' website"), subject to the conditions below;
  • links should be made only to pages displaying the short hypertext notice referring to the disclaimer and copyright notices;
  • when accessing the 'Tourism Business Portal' pages via a link, it should be perfectly clear to users that they are viewing information that is not exclusive or dependent on a fee for access;
  • equally important and related to the above point is that links should not be put in a context which could make users believe that the European institutions endorse, or support the objectives or contents of the other website, or the organisation managing it;
  • if links are made from a frames-based website, the pages should not be displayed as frames within that website in such a way that users might thereby misunderstand the true origin of the pages;
  • as soon as a link has been established, the Enterprise and Industry webmaster should be notified by transmission of the URL of the page where the link appears, enabling him to check if the above guidelines have been respected by the other website.
