Usage of Partners Badge if we use a dedicated certified vendor

Can our agency use the Google Partner Badge if we use a dedicated vendor that is Google Partner Certified? We would like to complete the process ourselves, but in the meantime, if we strictly use a certified partner, could we advertise agency as Google certified?

 

Thanks

Hello @Robert G,

In order to use the Partners logo you need to be an actual partner. Look at Google Partner badge guidelines to get more details on the requirements. Only companies that have earned Partner status can display the Partner badge or the Premier Partner badge.

Hi Robert,

 

I agree with Spencer. Using the Google Partner name or logo in the way you describe is a violation. The Google Partner badge is dynamically shown from the Google servers to the actual authorized end user only.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
