The legal need-to-knows
Staying within the law
All advertisements must comply with applicable laws and it is the partner’s responsibility to ensure that all activities comply with these laws. Advertisements must not breach another person’s copyright or other intellectual property rights.
Any marketing activity that promotes Xero, or is funded in part or whole by Xero, needs to be Xero-specific and cannot mention other accounting software products. Xero branding must appear in all activities and needs to follow our brand guidelines.
Your legal liability
Approval of an activity by Xero does not imply acknowledgment of legal compliance.
You must ensure that activities:
- do not bring Xero into disrepute
- are not misleading or deceptive in any way
Read the marketing fund guidelines, brand guidelines, and legal requirements, before applying.
