Linking to Third Party Websites

The following policy covers all web sites owned and developed by Shire.

External hyperlink approval should be sought via our Contact Us page for acceptance and assessment.

All links open in a separate window and not within the frameset of a Shire site. This is to prevent any inference that Shire approves or has any business or ownership rights relating to the third party site.

Logo links

On some occasions a logo hyperlink will be accepted, again this will need to be approved by our marketing team. If the logo is used on the site, written permission must be sought from the third party. This will protect Shire in terms of breach of copyright preventing any ambiguity between both parties. A written copy of express permission logo usage approval (letter or e-mail accepted), detailing the usage rights of their logo, must be forwarded on to the marketing team for reference purposes.

Denied Links

  • Pornography
  • Terrorism
  • Racism
  • Political views
  • Any criminal activity
  • Direct Competitors to Shire

Shire will portray a neutral stance on any views; hence no form of political alliance will be portrayed on any of the sites under its control.

Hyperlink disclaimer notice – all third parties will need to be made aware of the following:

  • Please note that that hyperlinks are given for information purposes only and there is no inferred recommendation as to the companies listed on a Shire site.
