Microsoft Link Logos Policy

The following guidelines are for Web sites that want to link to Microsoft.com by using the Microsoft.com link logo.

Policies for Displaying the Microsoft.com Link Logo on Non-Microsoft Web Sites

  1. Except as Microsoft may authorize elsewhere, non-Microsoft Web sites may display only the logo provided ("Logo"). By displaying the Logo, you agree to be bound by these policies.

  2. You may display the Logo only on your Web site and not in any other manner. It must always be an active link to http://www.microsoft.com.

  3. The Logo GIF includes the words "Visit Microsoft.com" to describe the significance of the Logo on your site (that is, the Logo is a link to Microsoft, not an endorsement of your site). You may not remove or alter this, or any other element of the Logo.

  4. Your Web page title and other trademarks and logos must appear at least as prominent as the Logo. You may not display the Logo in any manner that implies affiliation with, sponsorship by, or endorsement by Microsoft.

  5. The Logo must appear by itself, with a minimum spacing (1/4 the height of the Logo) between each side of the Logo and other graphic or textual elements on your page. The Logo may not be used as a feature or design element of any other logo.

  6. You may not alter the Logo in any manner, including size, proportions, colors, elements, etc., or animate, morph, or otherwise distort its perspective or appearance.

  7. You may not display the Logo on any site that disparages Microsoft or its products or services, infringes any Microsoft intellectual property or other rights, or violates any state, federal, or international law.

  8. These Policies do not grant any rights in any Microsoft logos or trademarks beyond the limited permission to display the Logo granted herein. Microsoft reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate or modify your permission to display the Logo at any time.

  9. Microsoft reserves the right to take action against any use that does not conform to these Policies, infringes any Microsoft intellectual property or other right, or violates other applicable law.

  10. MICROSOFT DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY BE EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED BY LAW REGARDING THE LOGO, INCLUDING WARRANTIES AGAINST INFRINGEMENT.
