Linking to the Site
Other Internet websites may freely provide hypertext or "Hot Links" to the Site, including “deep” links (i.e., links other than to the home page of the Site), provided that they are not “framed,” surrounded, or obfuscated by other non-AMA content, materials, or branding that is inconsistent with the mission of the AMA (as judged by the AMA in its sole discretion).

If you have violated or threatened to violate these policies, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief against you; this is in addition to any claims for damages that we may have.
