Website Policy

The purpose of Jenkintown Borough’s Website is to educate and inform the community about Jenkintown Borough and its procedures, policies and calendar of events. This policy is applicable to the Borough’s Website which is defined as any internet or intranet web page which represents itself as the Borough or any of its departments.

Jenkintown Borough will provide links from its website to other websites to support the Borough’s goal of providing a wide range of information to the public. Government, non-profit, and community-orientated, may be included. To be selected, websites must meet the following criteria:
• The primary intent of the website is to educate or inform.
• The site’s owner or sponsor is easily identifiable, and contact information is provided.
• The site does not charge for access.
• The site does not promote a specific religious, political, or social agenda.
The Borough will not provide links to sites that promote or exhibit bias, discrimination, pornography, libelous or otherwise defamatory content.
Each request by a person or entity to have the Borough provide a link from its website to the requesting party’s website must undergo review to determine its relevance and appropriateness to the Borough Website’s mission. The Borough Manager or his/her designee will review the merits of the requested link, keeping in mind the criteria listed above, to determine whether the link serves the overall purpose of the Borough Website.
The Borough:
• does not control content or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness or completeness of information contained on a linked website;
• does not endorse or recommend any third party web site, product, or services, unless otherwise noted;
• does not authorize the use of copyrighted materials contained in linked websites. Users must request such authorization from the sponsor of the linked website;
• is not responsible for transmissions that users receive from linked websites.

Since website content may change or disappear entirely without notice, the Borough cannot be held responsible for the content or the accuracy of websites not maintained by Jenkintown Borough staff.

Borough staff will make every effort to keep links current, but will encourage website visitors to inform the Borough if they find a link that no longer functions or that is inconsistent with the above-stated criteria.
