Edmunds API Branding Guide

 
 
 

Your use of any Edmunds API content, whether served from your site or from a client application, must appropriately attribute Edmunds by adhering to these few branding requirements.

Edmunds API Logos

You must use the Edmunds API Web Logo on every page that interacts with the Edmunds API or displays the Edmunds API data. This includes pages or screens in mobile applications.

Only the following Edmunds API Web Logos for branding attribution are allowed on your site or in your app at the full size that is provided. Select the logo that best suits the visual design and functionality of your site or app.

Additional branding requirements

  • The Edmunds API badge should not be the most prominent element or logo on the Web page, nor the only branding on the page.
  • Pace the Edmunds API Web Logo directly next to the area where Edmunds API data is being interacted with or displayed.
  • The Edmunds API badge must link directly to http://www.edmunds.com/?id=apis
