('Indeed') who publish on their websites, or provide links from their websites to web pages that contain, any of the following elements provided by Indeed (collectively, 'Program Elements'): job search results, JobrollTM, Job Search Box, pay-per-click advertisements, links, insertion code, and any Indeed logos or other elements supplied by Indeed for use on Affiliates' websites or websites co-branded by Indeed and Affiliate. Affiliates include the party publishing the results and/or any agency or network acting on its (or their) behalf, which shall also be bound by the terms of this AAUP.

2. Restricted Websites. Program Elements may not be published on, or linked by Affiliate from, any website that: (a) is under construction, incomplete or non-functioning; (b) contains material that infringes or misappropriates the rights, including copyright, of others; (c) contains pornographic, obscene, defamatory, violent, or hate-oriented material; (d) promotes spam; or (e) is in violation of any applicable law, or promotes any illegal goods, services or activities; or (f) engages in any other activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Indeed determines are harmful to Indeed's reputation, goodwill, other affiliates, customers or operations.

3. Location and Delivery of Program Elements: Affiliate shall not serve: (i) more than one Program Element on any single Web page without prior authorization in writing from Indeed; (ii) any Program Element on a Web page that does not contain substantial content other than the Jobroll itself; or (iii) any Program Element on a page published specifically for the purpose of showing ads, irrespective of the page content. Affiliate shall not serve Program Elements on, or link to web pages that contain Program Elements from, any: (a) downloadable software application without the written consent of Indeed; (b) software that can trigger pop-ups, redirect users to unwanted websites, modify browser settings, or otherwise interfere with site navigation; (c) Web site that is not directly controlled by Affiliate; (d) Web site that also contains other advertisements or services from any search engine for jobs or job board that directly competes with Indeed (excluding advertisements or services generated directly by Affiliate); or (e) newsgroups, message boards, emails, link farms, counters, chatrooms, guestbooks, domain parking websites, pop-ups or pop-unders. Any use of Indeed's XML Application Programming Interface ('API') by Affiliate shall be solely in accordance with the guidelines stipulated by Indeed for use of the API which may include informational requirements, or restrictions on sizes of requests, frequency, and query complexity.

4. Prohibited Activities. Affiliate shall not:(a) modify the Program Elements without written consent from Indeed; (b) place notices in proximity to any Program Element to encourage or require users to click on or use the services (Affiliates may, however, state: 'click here to visit our sponsor' or 'to visit our advertiser, click here'); (c) label Program Elements with text other than 'powered by Indeed' or 'ads by Indeed' or include any text in proximity to the Program Elements that could be confused with, or be associated with Program Elements; (d) use deceptive or unnatural means to draw attention to or incite clicks or use of Program Elements; (e) require users to click on a Program Element prior to entering an Affiliate website or any area therein or provide incentives of any nature to encourage or require users to click on or otherwise use Program Elements; (f) engage in any method to artificially and/or fraudulently inflate the volume of impressions or clicks associated with Program Elements or other sponsored advertising, including but not limited to: repeated manual clicks; the use of robots or other automated query tools and/or computer-generated search requests; automatic redirecting of users; using pop-up windows or any other technique of generating automatic or fraudulent (as determined by Indeed, acting reasonably, based on industry practices) click-throughs and/or impressions; (g) use frames, or otherwise alter the user experience, when a user clicks through to another website from the Indeed job search results; (h) redistribute the job search results or any part thereof to any third party, other than the provision of the job search results on Affiliate's website to the end users of that website that generated it; or (i) store any job search content.

5. Passwords, API Keys and Other Security Devices. If Indeed provides an Affiliate with a password, API key or other security device to obtain access to Program Elements or any non-public area of Indeed's web site or system, that Affiliate shall maintain the confidentiality of that password, API key or other security device, not share it or access to any such non-public areas with any third party, or use it for any unauthorized purpose.

6. Job Search Content. Indeed reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether to exclude certain job content from the search results provided to Affiliates, including, without limitation, if the job publisher specifically requests exclusion.

7. Delivery of Program Elements. Affiliate agrees to comply with the specifications provided by Indeed from time to time to enable proper delivery, display, tracking and reporting of Program Elements.
