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:

  • 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 by Management.
  • 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.

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 State Web Site Link and Privacy Policy that is posted on the Department of Information Resources (DIR) Web site at http://www2.dir.state.tx.us/pubs/Pages/weblink-privacy.aspx.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability Any Web links provided through this server are included merely for the convenience of agency staff and the public as potential sources of information and/or to facilitate research that advances public purposes. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other such Web sites. Users of the Web site are responsible for checking the accuracy, completeness, currency and/or suitability of all information themselves. Any Web links available through this server do not constitute or imply an endorsement by the Authority of any product, process, or service listed in those Web sites or the producer or provider of those products or services. The Authority makes no effort to independently verify, and does not exert editorial control over, information on pages outside of the Authority's Web sites. The views and opinions expressed in any referenced document or any Web site linked to this server do not necessarily state or reflect those of the Authority. Neither the Authority, nor its Board of Directors, nor any of its employees, makes any warranties, express or implied, concerning the information, services, or software found on this site or other sites to which it links. The Authority and its employees, expressly disclaim all implied warranties of merchantability and of fitness for a particular purpose. You expressly agree that your use of this site is at your own risk. The Authority, its Board of Directors and its employees do not warrant that this website, its services, its servers, or email sent from it are free of viruses or other harmful components. Under no circumstances shall the Authority, its Board of Directors or its employees be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages that result in any way from your use of this site, or sites to which it links, or from reliance on or use of information, services, software, or merchandise provided on or through this site, or that result from deletion of files, delays in operation or transmission of data, or any failure of performance of the site.
