  • Link Agreement

    Susan G. Komen ("Komen") does not provide links from its website(s) to external sites except as specified by business or contractual relationships with partners/sponsors and select information providers.

    Permission to create a link to any Komen Internet websites (the "Sites") is granted upon compliance with the conditions described in this Link Agreement. By creating a link to any of the Sites, you agree to be bound by the terms stated in this Link Agreement. Komen reserves the right to change these conditions at any time without prior notice, and compliance with such revised terms is a prerequisite to your continued right to link to the Sites.

    Komen expects persons or organizations that link to the Sites to provide factually correct information and to uphold high ethical standards in developing and presenting information. Permission to link to the Sites is limited to: (i) active volunteers or participants in any event sponsored or benefiting Komen or its affiliates; (ii) donors or sponsors with formal affiliations with Komen or its affiliates; (iii) recipients of Komen grants or sponsorships using language outlined in the funding contracts; (iv) organizations actively participating in breast cancer research or education or aid to breast cancer survivors or other activities in fulfillment of Komen's Promise; (v) community non-profit organizations serving the needs of breast cancer survivors; or (vi) individuals or organizations that, through the approval of Komen, are members of advocacy or grassroots fundraising groups. If you do not fall into any of these categories, please contact Komen prior to linking.

    Links may only be established to the homepage of the Sites. Links to any main section page or sub-section within, and/or any featured area of the Sites, are prohibited.

    When linking to the Sites, you may use either a text link or a generic pink ribbon graphic of your own design. You must use hypertext only and it must be in the following form: "Susan G. Komen for the Cure®." Any variation without written consent from Komen will result in immediate termination of your rights to link to the Sites. Please note that only official sponsors or partners affiliated with Komen who have a written license agreement with Komen may use the official Komen registered pink ribbon logo (or any other Komen trademarks, service marks, logos or slogans) as a link.

    When linking to the Sites, you may not create a frame around the information provided from the Sites or represent it differently in any way other than it is presented on the Sites.

    When linking to the Sites, you may not state or imply that Komen is endorsing you and/or any of the products or services that you or your organization provides. Additionally, you may not represent that you or your organization has a relationship with Komen or any of the events, products or services that Komen provides unless that relationship is the subject of a written agreement that has been signed by Komen. You must clearly communicate to the public that you are one of the persons or organizations permitted to link (as identified above) by stating that you are a donor or breast cancer survivor or Komen supporter, etc., as applicable.

    By linking to the Sites, you acknowledge the following:

    • Except for sponsor materials or unless otherwise indicated, Komen holds the copyright to all materials on the Sites.

Without the express written consent of Komen, you may not copy, reproduce, display, republish, download, post or otherwise use any of the material or Marks from the Sites on your website or on another website. Any use of the Marks requires a separate agreement with Komen and is permitted only subject to, and in accordance with, Komen's standard branding guidelines and quality control and trademark guidelines and license of use of the Marks.

If your link to the Sites results in the need for servicing or repair of equipment or data, you agree to assume any costs thereof.
    • Komen reserves the right to terminate any links to the Sites as it deems necessary, with or without cause or warning. If Komen chooses to exercise this right, you will be required to remove your link to the Sites immediately.
