Basic idea is to search theme files for text of the link and remove code that inserts it.

  • Best case scenario it would be single line to remove.
  • Worst case scenario - link would be added by highly obfuscated code and rigged to break theme if link is removed.

Since theme you referenced is in official theme repository it would be unlikely to have obfuscated code.
