Can profiles be linked to high school websites? [closed]

+8 votes
Are there any restrictions (privacy concerns, etc.) regarding linking a profile to a high school website?

Some high school websites have alumni lists, which is what I want to link to profiles. Is that okay?

I would think it would be OK.  Once the link is clicked the problem of privacy would be shifted to the other website, after all, it's already on the internet.

There should be no problem, the best method may be to create a category page for the school - many are already created.  Add the category page to the profile and provide a link to the school site on the category page.  

This has been done for Category: Massachusetts Maritime Academy as one example.  There are many more.
