Subject to the policies and procedures set forth herein, DEBORAH encourages individuals, chapters, groups and organizations to link to our Web site as an informational and educational resource.
However, every Web site that refers to or uses the name DEBORAH must accept the responsibility of maintaining and promoting the goodwill and reputation that DEBORAH has developed over the years. Although we, at DEBORAH, encourage the interaction and exchange of information between and among our Web site and links to other sites, no individual, chapter, group or organization (sometimes collectively referred to as, “Licensee”) will be allowed to refer or use the name DEBORAH without first obtaining DEBORAH’s approval and prior written permission.

Any Licensee Web site that refers to or uses the name DEBORAH will cause to appear on the last page of its Web site and on any legal notices, disclaimers or similar page of such Web site, a notice to the following effect:
“DEBORAH” and the Heart and D logo and any other DEBORAH trademarks that Licensee is authorized to use are registered trademarks of DEBORAH Heart and Lung Center.”

In addition to obtaining the prior written authorization of DEBORAH to refer to or use the name DEBORAH on other Web sites, we require that all Licensees provide a link between their Web sites to DEBORAH’s Web site. This will help ensure that any information provided by a Licensee to a user about DEBORAH is complete, current and accurate. Because Licensees will post an access link to DEBORAH’s Web site, users of Licensee Web sites will have the ability to verify information presented to them about DEBORAH.
Any sites linked to this Web site shall not contain any defamatory, misleading or offensive content. DEBORAH, at its sole discretion, may modify or terminate a Licensee’s or any user’s utilization of its Web site at any time, for any or no reason, and without notice or any liability to any Licensee, user or third party.

DEBORAH does not authorize any users and Licensees to seek donations on the Internet on behalf of DEBORAH without the prior written authorization of DEBORAH’s Executive Director. However, in the event that any Licensee Web sites are successful in encouraging individuals and other parties to donate to DEBORAH directly by linking from the Licensee to DEBORAH’s own Web site, recognition will be given to such Licensee, as determined by DEBORAH, in its sole discretion, in accordance with DEBORAH’s policies and procedures.
