Important points

  • Use the provided HTML source code as is. Modified HTML is not permissable.
  • When using an image to give credit do not alter the image.
  • Do not display anything that would mislead the user into thinking the site or app was part of Rakuten, Inc. or a Rakuten Group company.
  • Do not use these brandings on sites or apps that do not use Rakuten Web Services.
  • When using text or an image to give credit you may place them anywhere on your site or app. However please do not display them in a way that would prevent the user from understanding that the site or app was supported Rakuten Web Services.

Please be aware that if the HTML source code or images have been modified or these requirements are in any other way not met, access to the Rakuten Web Services APIs may be disabled.
