Linking Statement

Links to the Texas Lottery Commission Website

Advance permission to link to Texas Lottery Commission (hereafter referred to as “TLC”) websites is not necessary; however, be aware that TLC subpages may change at any time without notice. Entities and individuals linking to the TLC website are encouraged to verify link accuracy periodically.

Entities and individuals linking to the TLC website shall not capture TLC pages within frames, present TLC content as its own, or otherwise misrepresent TLC content. Furthermore, they shall not misinform users about the origin or ownership of TLC content, or in any way attempt to modify the content and then present it as the content of TLC.

Certain information on the TLC website may be protected by trademark and copyright laws and otherwise protected as intellectual property. Protected intellectual property must be used in accordance with state and federal laws and must reflect the proper ownership of the intellectual property.

Linking to individual graphics or tables within our pages, which places the downloading burden on our servers, may be considered an inappropriate use of state resources.

Any link to TLC websites should be a full forward link that passes the client browser directly to the appropriate page on the TLC website unencumbered. The “Back” button should return the visitor to the original site if the visitor wishes to back out.

Links from TLC Websites

TLC may choose to link to external websites that would provide a service to our visitors. The external website’s content must be appropriate to the purposes of the TLC. Links will not be approved to commercial sites which charge a fee for products or services online. (Notices of the availability of publications or notices of conferences that charge a registration fee are not commercial sites and may be considered for linking.)

Linking to an external website does not constitute an endorsement of the content, viewpoint, accuracy, opinions, policies, products, services, or accessibility of the site. Any mention of vendors, products, or services is for informational purposes only. TLC reserves the right to remove links to external sites if they are inaccurate, inactive, or inappropriate.

The TLC does not enter into reciprocal link agreements although we may provide links to sites that are appropriate to our mission and goals. Our creation of a link to a site does not obligate that site’s owner to provide a link back to TLC websites.

External Websites

Upon leaving a TLC website and linking to an external site, the policies governing the TLC website no longer apply and users are subject to the external site’s policies. Questions and concerns regarding the information or services provided by a linked site must be directed to the entity or individual responsible for that site, rather than to the TLC webmaster.
