Brand Placement Guidelines

[Replace “BRAND” with your brand or product name to use the following Tap-provided brand placement guidelines.]

 These guidelines serve as a filter to ensure that you do not inadvertently communicate about or directly associate BRAND with negative or inappropriate content.

  • No overly explicit language in conjunction with the BRAND integration or placement
  • No sexual language or acts in association with the BRAND integration or placement
  • No reference to illegal drugs in association with the BRAND integration or placement
  • No religious or political associations made in context of the BRAND integration or placement
  • No disparagement of BRAND and/or creative advertising
  • No overt or implied negative view of any direct BRAND competitors
