RGB Link Policy
 
The NYC Rent Guidelines Board (RGB), upon request, consider links to any site that, in RGBs opinion, provides resources which promote the goals in the mission statement of housingnyc.com. Links are subject to the following criteria:
  1. If the link requested is to governmental resources, only official government sites (e.g., federal, state, or local), will be considered. The requesting entity must demonstrate that the site is official via email communication with the designated housingnyc.com official.
  2. If the link requested is to a government-funded agency or board, only official sites will be considered. The requesting entity must demonstrate that the site is official via email communication with the designated housingnyc.som official.
  3. If the link requested is to a type of site other than in [1] and [2] above, to be considered the link must fulfill one of the below criteria:
    1. If the link is to help users with a vendor's technology necessary to use housingnyc.com, the link must be the official site of the vendor(s) providing the technology
    2. If the link is to promote public awareness of an event within New York City available for free to the general public, the link must be to the official site of the entity (ies) providing the event;
    3. If the link is to be from a housingnyc.com page promoting public awareness of an event being co-sponsored by the City of New York, and the purpose of the link is to acknowledge the other co-sponsor (s), the link must be to the official site of that entity.
    4. If the link is to be on a housingnyc.com page on a site created or maintained by an outside entity under contract with the City of New York, the link must be to the official site of that entity.
  4. Links should not be requested to non-City of New York sites:
    1. with threaded discussion groups, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and other largely unedited content authored by persons who are not owners, operators, or agents of the site;
    2. which support candidates for office, political parties, referenda, and bills pending before legislatures;
    3. which include the graphic depiction or description of violence;
    4. which include the graphic depiction or description of nudity and/or sexual activities;
    5. whose purpose is to aid or incite crime; or
    6. which link directly to another site which would be in violation of (a), (b), (c), (d), or (e) above

RGB handles requests for links to sites and reciprocal links by:

  • When a request to link comes in, reviewing the site against RGBs adopted criteria; and
  • Notifying the requesting sponsor when the decision is in the affirmative. Sites that are linked to housingnyc.com are reviewed periodically to confirm that the link policy criteria are still being met.
