Data Collection Sites

I working for a private medical insurance provider and I realised that there are many Data Collection Websites. They are using my company logo, appearing on my keywords. What can I do to stop this process? 

 

Potential customer believes that is entering on my company website. Then Data Collection Company will call me if I want to buy leads for £20each. 

 

Any ideas what I can do in such cases ?

Hi Gregory,

 

This sounds like a potential trademark infringement. I would recommend reading through this link to better understand if there is a violation. If you still believe there is then file a complaint per the instructions here. This assumes that your company name and logo are trademarked.

 

FYI, they are allowed to bid on any keywords they want, however they can't use your trademarked terms in their ad copy unless they comply with the policies in the first link.
