Rules for linking a website.
The declaration of a website is optional. At this we also reserve the right to link the given
homepage or not. In general the links stay active for two years and will be removed after this
time. Please notice that we link natural persons, only! If you want a juristic person please
understand that this is just possible as appendix. In this case a natural person could be the
orderer for example. Please understand that we reserve the right to link the same homepage for
several adoptions just once a year. Furthermore there are no sentences or parts of sentences
for the linking text allowed, only the website is named.
For example: Max Mustermann (www.wetterpate.de)
Valid from 26 September 2012 all links to a homepage are with costs! The price for each link is 20,-.
