TPFA Link Policy
The Texas Public Finance Authority's (Authority) policy on establishing links
from the Authority's Web site to other Web sites is guided by the business
needs of the agency and whether there is a public purpose for establishing the
link. Links are provided as a public service and for informational purposes
only. Links are provided only when the external server provides information
that is useful to the public, our constituents or our employees and relate to
the agency's programs, activities or functions. The Authority does not enter
into reciprocal linking agreements. The following are the Authority's
guidelines for establishing external Web links:
We will remove or disallow links to external servers if we become aware that
they are not managed in a professional manner, not operational and available
most of the time, not kept up-to-date, provide inaccurate information or
contain unlawful or inappropriate content. We will also remove a link if the
owner of the Web site objects to such link. The Authority also follows the
Information Resources (DIR) Web site at
Political Web sites.
Links to political Web sites are not allowed.
Public Web sites.
Links to public Web sites and other state agency or federal government and
public education sites are allowed.
Private Web sites.
Links to private commercial and noncommercial Web sites will only be allowed if
there is a public purpose for establishing the link, and the link is approved
Considerations in determining whether to link to a Private Web site.
Where there is a legitimate business need (public purpose) to establish a link
from an agency Web page to a private Web site, the proposed link will be
evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If there is a public purpose for including
such links (e.g. to facilitate the Authority fulfilling a specific statutory
duty or to provide information related to the agency's programs, activities, or
functions), then the link may be allowed, subject to approval by
Management. Links to any website that contains offensive or inappropriate
material, as determined in the sole judgment and discretion of the Authority's
management, will not be allowed.
