No, the contract is informal, and I made a faulty assumption that it would
be OK to include a link.

All true. Except that those who hired me to do the work are not the same
people who object to the link. The department which commissioned the work
(and paid the bill) has no objection and, I believe, supports me on this.
It's a delicate thing though, and as I don't want to upset the powers that
be, I will bow out gracefully. Annoying, as I think the
soon-to-be-ex-Communications Director is behind this...

Thanks for the comments.
