Reciprocal linking

The OII does not currently offer a 'link exchange' or 'reciprocal links' facility. We do not normally link to external sites unless we have an existing relationship with an organisation and site linked to offers additional information of value and relevance to our users.


We do not permit a website to link to the OII if it contains material which is libellous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene, or is in any way a breach of the laws of England and Wales or infringes any third party intellectual property rights.

Link maintenance

The OII is not responsible for broken links produced on your site as a result of our moving or deleting pages on our site.
