The Contact Linking Object provides a method for linking one Contact Object to another Contact Object. For example, you may have an organisation with many people in it. Using Contact Linking, you can assign all of the People Objects [contacts.person] to the single Organisation Object [contacts.org]. In your application, you can then run a filter against the Collection to get all of the people within a specified organisation.
