D&G is committed to complying with laws and regulations requiring clear and accurate advertising messages, Endorsements and testimonials when communicating with the public, including the disclosure of all material connections between an D&G marketing promotion using any Page and a User’s participation in that promotion. This Policy is intended to provide guidelines essential to ensuring compliance with those laws and regulations. Therefore, this Policy applies to all D&G employees, independent contractors, agents (including anyone speaking, writing, blogging, posting on any Platform, or otherwise generally endorsing D&G products or services), and any other individual or entity engaged in promotional endorsement activities on behalf of D&G, whether they are engaged by D&G directly or through an agency, representative of an agency, subsidiary or franchise (collectively referred to herein as “Endorsers”). This Policy applies irrespective of the forum in which the Endorsement or testimonial is being made, written or verbal, including, but not limited to, television commercials, print advertisements, websites, blogs, mobile applications, Platforms in general or any other form of media which may be used to advertise.
Endorsers are responsible for their opinions, comments and content made in Posts and may be held personally liable for any commentary deemed to be defamatory, libelous, obscene, or an infringement on the proprietary rights of D&G or any third party; therefore Endorsers should be mindful of this potential liability when disseminating opinions, comments and content through Posts. In addition, Endorsers should at all times be aware that Posts may remain public or may be archived so that such Posts may be stored and retrievable, indefinitely.
With respect to statements or other claims made in advertising messages or promotional communications about D&G and/or its products or services, Endorsers must adhere to the following general standards and disclosure requirements:
1. General Standards
Endorsers may only make statements that reflect their honest opinions, finding, beliefs or experiences. Endorsers may not make statements about experiences with a product not personally used, examined or evaluated.
Endorsements by organizations must reflect the collective judgment of the organization.
Endorsers may not make deceptive, misleading or untruthful claims about D&G’s products or services.
Endorsers may not make any claims about D&G’s products or services that are not substantiated.
Endorsers may not engage in any communication that is defamatory or infringes upon the intellectual property or privacy and publicity rights of others.
Endorsers may not use any intellectual property of D&G in their Endorsement without the prior written consent of D&G in each instance, and such use must be in accordance with the specific guidelines provided by D&G.
Endorsers may not make any comments or Posts that in any way promotes unsafe or dangerous activities.
Endorsers may not make any comments or Posts that violate local, state or federal law.
Endorsers that are also employees of D&G must adhere to all employee guidelines found in the employee handbook, specifically including the “Social Media & Networking” section.
Endorsers may have access to or directly or indirectly be exposed to information of a proprietary and confidential nature about D&G (including without limitation its business operations and activities, strategic plans and financial information). Endorsers shall keep confidential and not disclose any such information.
2. Disclosure Requirements
Endorsers must clearly and conspicuously disclose any “material connections” to D&G in all advertising, promotional and Endorsement related communications concerning D&G and/or its products or services.
A “material connection” is one that is not reasonably expected by the audience or not readily apparent from the context of the communication that may affect the weight or credibility a reasonable consumer would give to the communications or messages made by the Endorser.
Such connections may be found in the form of:
Receiving consideration (i.e. monetary compensation, including fees or commissions; gift cards; event access; prizes; free or discounted products or services) provided by D&G (or any of its agents acting on its behalf) to the Endorser;
A relationship between D&G and the Endorser (such as employment or contractual relationships); or
Potential consideration gained through a promotion, contest, or sweepstakes for which participation is conditioned upon an Endorsement.
Some examples of adequate material connection disclosures may be as follows:
I received from D&G as a gift;
[Thanks to][Courtesy of] D&G, I was given ;
D&G sent me to try;
This post is a paid advertisement for D&G;
I am an employee of D&G; or Tagging an Endorsement on any Platform with a hashtag that discloses the material connection of the Endorsement to D&G or a specific promotion or contest; possible acceptable examples may include #Ad, #D&GSponsored, #D&GContest, etc.
The above are only examples of disclosures which may be adequate. Variations of those examples may also be adequate depending on the context. The key is to disclose that there is a relationship between D&G and the Endorser which a reasonable consumer reading the Endorsement may not have realized (e.g. an employment relationship, a paid advertiser relationship, or related to a promotion or contest advertised by D&G).
Disclosures need to be made in a clear and conspicuous manner. This generally means the disclosure should occur in close proximity to where the Endorsement was made and in a similar size, font and color.
Endorsers who post their own opinions, comments, content or recommendations about D&G, and/or its products or services, must disclose that their views do not necessarily represent those of D&G.
Failure to comply with the following Guidelines will cause a Post to be rejected and pulled from D&G’s Pages and may result in immediate disqualification from being a User of D&G’s Pages:
