3. Website links policy

Alzheimer's Society is committed to working closely with other organisations which share our aims and values and encourages and supports the development of websites which will help promote knowledge and understanding of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

You are free to link to Alzheimer's Society pages. However, we would appreciate being informed on any link to our site. Alzheimer's Society retains the right to withdraw this permission without explanation or notice if in its sole judgement use of such links is excessive or inappropriate.

Links made to Alzheimer's Society's website should not infer any endorsement or sponsorship by Alzheimer's Society of that site or its products or services. A third party must ensure that nothing on its own site describes or could be understood to imply that any part of the Alzheimer's site is part of the third party website. Any page or file must be called with its URL displayed.

The Society receives many requests from other organisations and individuals to link to their websites which may provide information on Alzheimer's disease, dementia and related issues.

Our policy is to consider these websites carefully in the light of the following criteria.

Websites that we link to must:

  • be directly related to dementia or to complement our site
  • be respectful of the needs of the person with dementia
  • not have a sole purpose of endorsing or selling products to users
  • be of national interest
  • be professionally designed, well presented, and updated appropriately.

The Society reserves the right to determine which sites it links to. Reciprocal links are frequently not granted due to the sheer volume of requests and the criteria as stated above.

Using links to other sites

This site contains links to websites operated by parties other than Alzheimer's Society.

Such links are provided for your convenience only. Links to third party sites are identifiable because clicking on them will display the third party's web site URL.

When you access any other website by means of a link from this website you should understand that Alzheimer's Society does not control such websites and is not responsible for their contents. Inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators.

We cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over the availability of the linked pages.
