1. General Guidelines
By participating in the Facebook Marketing Partner Program (“Program”), you agree to comply with these Marketing Partner Program Policies, as well as Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and other applicable Facebook terms, guidelines or policies referenced in these Program policies.
Any violation of any of the Facebook terms may result in suspension from the Program, removal from the Marketing Partner Center, termination of access to Facebook’s Ads API, disabling of Facebook advertising accounts, revocation of previously issued qualifications, immediate and permanent removal from the Program or other sanctions as Facebook deems appropriate.
Marketing Partners must provide Facebook’s Marketing Partner Program team members with login credentials upon request.
Facebook, at its sole discretion, may modify or terminate the Program at any time, and reserves the right to grant or remove access to the Program at its sole discretion.
Facebook may change these terms at any time without prior notice. Please check them regularly. Your continued participation in the Program (including any use of the Marketing Partner Program badge, Ads API, Marketing Partner Center, etc.) constitutes acceptance of those changes.
2. Badge and Logo Use
Marketing Partner Program participants must follow the below guidelines as well as adhere to all of the Badge requirements.
Marketing Partner Program badge
The Marketing Partner Program badge allows you to promote your status as a member of the Program in online and offline materials.
Using the badge
- You may use the badge only if you have been recognized as a member of the Marketing Partner Program by the Facebook Marketing Partner Program. The Marketing Partner Center lists all currently badged companies. The badge is issued by Facebook to each member and illustrates the qualification(s) each company has earned.
- You may not modify or alter the badge in any way, such as changing its design or color, or combining the badge with any other words or images, or altering any of the qualifications shown on the badge.
- In online materials, the badge must hyperlink to one of the following: the Marketing Partner Center or your profile page in the Marketing Partner Program website.
- You must keep sufficient space around the badge so it appears clean and uncluttered.
- You may not use the badge in any way that implies that you are an employee or agent of Facebook, or that Facebook endorses, sponsors, or is responsible for your services. You agree that you are solely responsible and liable for your services.
- You may not use the badge in a way that is deceptive, harmful, obscene, or otherwise objectionable to Facebook.

In addition to the below guidelines, the Facebook Developer PR Guidelines must be observed when discussing Facebook, the Program, products, statistics or trends publicly (press releases, articles, blog posts, etc.). Failure to do so may result in retraction of public materials or removal from the Program.
All public communications must be sent to the Marketing Partner Team via this form for prior review and approval.

Facebook and you are entering into these terms as independent contractors, and (notwithstanding any use of the term “preferred” or “partner”) nothing in these terms will be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between us.
