1 Hughes Online Marketing Policy
In an effort to control and manage the Hughes and HughesNet brand experience, Hughes is instituting
the following online marketing policy.


1.1         Pay per Click and Search Terms

Beginning September 23, 2010, Hughes will restrict the use of branded search terms to a select number
of “exclusive” sales agents who demonstrate high standards in their online marketing practices, produce
high-quality orders and activations.

These agents will be notified and provided with the criteria required to maintain the right of use of these
terms. In addition, the Hughes corporate Web site will be designated to position one (Number 1) on the
three major search engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Resellers with brand term privileges are instructed
not to overtake the Hughes corporate site for position one. Violation of placement policy can result in loss
of brand term privileges.
