We hereby notify our customers that we may use a variety of competitor brand names as key words when advertising on Google. These brand names are not visible, they are simply typed into the back-end of Google so that if you type a particular brand into the search engine ours may appear alongside other companies. We confirm that there is no link between us and any trademark owners' brand names that we may use.
We do this because some trademarks & brand names become 'everyday' language - for example 'hoover' storage bags, space bags, the brand name 'Google' is now used as a verb 'to google'. We also believe this ensures a competitive market place and helps you as a customer have a choice of prices and the chance to support small local UK based companies, not just companies who can spend the most on advertising.
