Inbound linking policy
Inova Health System's logo is protected under applicable intellectual property laws and, therefore, may not be used on a Web site as a graphical hyperlink to the Inova Health System Web site. A link to the Inova Health System Web site from another Web site is permitted as long as the use of such a link does not suggest, indicate or imply that the owner of the Web site where the link resides is an official representative of Inova, or that Inova in any way endorses the content on the linking Web site. Inova generally does not object to links to the Inova Web site from third-party sites. However, there are certain conditions that must be followed (see below).
