Publisher who want to do search marketing are required to accept & comply with the terms of our Search Policy.
Updated March, 2009
We encourage the use of search engines as a means to drive additional traffic to additional VistaPrint channel offers such as acquisition email and the affiliate program. However, partners and affiliates who choose to use search to drive traffic to VistaPrint offers must be bound by the following rules. Those in violation of this policy will lose the opportunity to use search marketing to drive traffic to VistaPrint offers either at the individual partner level or on behalf of the entire network so it is important for networks to closely monitor adherence to the rules by their partners. In addition they risk NOT be compensated for any orders driven from a policy violation. VistaPrint reserves the right to update these policies as needed.
1. DISPLAY URL – Vistaprint.com
a. They may NEVER under any circumstances use www.vistaprint.com or vistaprint.com as the display URL in a search ad. Also, they may NEVER use any VistaPrint specific locale in their domain. (I.e vistaprint.co.uk or vistaprint.es)
2. VISTAPRINT TRADEMARKS & IMPERSONATION
a. They must NOT use the trademarked terms VistaPrint, Vista Print, and VistaPrint.com in search copy regardless of the keyword searched.
b. They must NOT misspell VistaPrint trademarked terms to imitate or bypass the trademark policy, such as using the plural version, Vista Prints.
c. They must NOT run ads impersonating VistaPrint or implying the ad is served by VistaPrint. Ads should clearly be represented as links to an affiliate offer.
