The brand, brand variations, incorrect spellings and word combinations may not be offered in any search engine. Use of the following fixed rules or instructions should ensure that our partners work in a manner that conforms with search engine guidelines:

1. Keywords
a) Negative keywords list/Trademarks
You are not allowed to show adverts for a straight search on these trademarked or excluded terms:
No search engine advertisements should be displayed with the terms "gdata", "g data", and "g-data".

3. Ad Title
You are allowed to use trademarks in your Ad Copy Title

4. Ad Text
You are allowed to use trademarks in your Ad Copy Body

5. Direct links to G DATA web pages from search engine displays are not allowed. Direct forwarding (even in iFrame) to G DATA web pages is not permitted within SEM. Partners who operate SEM should set up their own landing page, which we will be happy to assist you with.

6. Promoting our landing pages without adding your own content is not allowed, otherwise every affiliate page being promoted would look the same.

7. Integrating the content into your own website is generally preferable. With SEM, more caution is required from individual partners in respect of their competitors. Adapt the page you wish to promote with its own "look and feel" and thus distance it from that of your competitors.

8. Create a legal page with contact information to make it clear that this is your own website offering!
