Aggregate Review ToS

Our company is looking to use GoogleMyBusiness in developing for a mobile site.  The ask is to show the aggregate review for the business we are developing for.  I have read through the Terms of Service, but I can't see anything that explicitly states the terms of use.

 

Our guess is to include “Provided by Google” and “X of X Stars, XX Reviews”.  Would this be sufficient from a legal perspective?

Are you asking about marking them up in schema? If so then the schema guidelines state explicitly that you should not mark up 3rd party reviews. And if you have aggregate reviews schema there needs to be actual reviews (your own) immediately associated with them

 

Here are the guidelines: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/reviews#review-snippet-guidelines
