Galaxy Store Badge Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions for use of Galaxy Store badge images and shortlinks.

Overview

You help power the Galaxy Store and create unique experiences for Galaxy mobile device and Galaxy Watch device consumers. Samsung welcomes you to promote your apps with a badge that sends your customers to your apps' product detail pages or your entire app line's seller brand page in the Galaxy Store, or sends them to a help page that guides your customers to those Galaxy Store pages.

After you generate a badge shortlink, you can link it to a Galaxy Store badge image and use them in your marketing media (including websites, social media, and email). You can also link text or images in your marketing and social media (including Facebook and Twitter) to your badge shortlink.

Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions govern your use of Galaxy Store badge shortlinks and images. Samsung, at its sole discretion, retains the right to change these terms & conditions at any time.

By submitting a request for a badge shortlink, you agree to abide by the following:

  • Samsung Developer Program (SDP) Terms of Use (https://www.samsungdevelopers.com/terms-of-use/)

  • Badge shortlink Requests: All requests for the generation and termination of badge shortlinks will be reviewed by Samsung for approval at its sole discretion.

  • Badge Usage: After generation, you can use your badge image and shortlink in any of your marketing materials and communication channels. When using a badge image, you must make it a hyperlink that targets your badge shortlink.

    Dos and don’ts of badge image and shortlink use:

    • Do not edit or modify a badge image or your badge shortlinks.
    • Do link your own text and images to your badge shortlink.
    • Do display badge images at a large enough size so that all badge text is readable.
  • Data Collection/Retention: When you submit a request to obtain a badge shortlink, you will be asked to provide the contact information of the SDP account holder requesting a badge, the Seller Office account holder of the badge app, and/or anyone else in the company associated with the badge request (if applicable). Samsung will store the email addresses of contact personnel to support communication regarding the badge service (for example, service changes). Samsung records and reports badge shortlink usage data for your use and Samsung’s use.

  • Terminating a badge shortlink:  Samsung at its sole discretion may render a badge shortlink invalid and nonfunctional due to the following circumstances: low badge shortlink or badge app usage, Samsung approval of a badge shortlink termination request submitted by the badge shortlink requester, or badge shortlink termination initiated by Samsung at its sole discretion.

  • Communications: For all communications pertaining to a badge shortlink, Samsung will communicate with both the SDP account holder who requested the badge shortlink and the Seller Office account holder who registered the badge app.

  • Badge Component Changes:  Samsung retains the right at any time to change badge shortlink domain names, to change badge shortlink tags, and to change badge images.
