You may link to pages within the Site provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage ICEO’s reputation or take advantage of it, and provided that you do not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on ICEO’s part without ICEO’s express written consent. ICEO reserves the right to withdraw linking permission in ICEO’s sole discretion.
