While advertising cannot be sold at any level, links to commercial vendors may be made in the following specific situations:

- Links to separately contracted vendor - The logo or link is to a vendor or other entity separately contracted to provide services to the university
- Sponsorship Recognition - Within a unit's Web page, a logo or link can be displayed at that unit's second level page or below to acknowledge the support of the unit's mission-related activities through sponsorship. Such logos or links are deemed to be recognition of corporate or other external sponsorship; payment may not be accepted for that link or logo
- Educational purposes - The text link provides information for educational or other mission-related purposes and the university has received no consideration for incorporating that link
