Web Advertising, Sponsorships and Partnerships

To protect the educational nature of University Web sites and to preserve their primary role in support of the University's mission, commercial advertising is prohibited on the uga.edu domain, with delineated exceptions including Georgia Magazine, as is using the University of Georgia's Internet protocol ranges ( See advertising on University Web sites (http://wiki.eits.uga.edu/campuswebhelp/index.php/Policy_Guidelines_Regarding_Non-Educational_Advertising_on_University_of_Georgia_Websites).

Sponsors may be acknowledged on official University sites related to University-sponsored artistic or cultural programs, conferences or special events. These acknowledgements must be supported by a written agreement between the sponsor and the University entity that specifies a limited term, typically concluding with the end of an event or series.

Acknowledgements may include the sponsor's corporate name or logo but may not include a street address, telephone number, e-mail address, product name or service information. Acknowledgements may not include a call to action or comparison. The acknowledgement must include a disclosure such as, "The Artist Series acknowledges the support of these sponsors" and should not imply endorsement by the University.

Sponsors are not entitled to display University marks on their Web sites without prior written consent from the University of Georgia's Licensing Trademark Program.

Official University sites covered by this policy may acknowledge business partnerships for services provided at no cost that assist the University in achieving its mission as, for example, access to an online research service or a search engine. Otherwise, all the provisions for sponsorships apply to partnerships, except that logos may be hyperlinked to the service provided.
