Frequently Asked Questions

USAGE QUESTIONS

 What are your guidelines?

  1. Attribute the article to Brandpoint. Either “Brandpoint” or “BPT” should appear in the author byline, at the beginning of the text, or at the bottom of the article.

  2. Maintain product or brand mentions within the article.

  3. You do not need to use the images that come with the article, but you may not use different images with the article, or use our images with other texts.

  4. Brandpoint’s content may not be used by media publications that feature content that is defamatory, pornographic or obscene.

More specific terms of use can be found in our Content Licensing Agreement.

Is there any cost involved when I use an article?

No. All articles and photos are free to download and use. Our content is sponsored by our clients, which allows us to offer it to editors for free.

Do I need to send tear sheets or print clips?

Brandpoint does not require tear sheets to be sent back to us when you publish an article. However, we do offer a $2 reimbursement to publications who share tear sheets using the Print Clip Upload Tool on our homepage. Tear sheets must abide by our compensation Terms and Conditions.

Can I trim articles for size or adjust formatting?

Feel free to adjust the formatting of all articles and photos to fit your needs. You can shorten the article if needed, but please avoid making changes to the copy, including removal of references to products and services associated with specific brands. You must retain the Brandpoint attribution so that our monitoring services can identify our content.

How can I use the photos?

Images associated with an article can be published only as an accompaniment to the article’s text. Any other use is prohibited.
