9.5 Right to Use COUNTER-Compliance Logo and Designation

Content providers who have had their application accepted by COUNTER but have not yet completed a successful audit may use the designation “COUNTER Compliance Pending”. Only content providers that have passed the audit can use the designation “COUNTER Compliant” and the dated COUNTER logo.

Content providers who have not applied for compliance or whose compliance has lapsed MUST NOT claim or imply COUNTER compliance on their site, in licenses, or in their marketing and do not have the rights to use the COUNTER name or logo.
