# Attribution and Links to TrustedParts.com

If your application is publicly available, we require that where TrustedParts.com API data is displayed you visibly give attribution to TrustedParts.com and link back to TrustedParts.com using the text "Powered by" and then a TrustedParts.com logo.

The attribution link must be visible, functional, and followable. To be followable, the link must not have a rel="nofollow" attribute, and it should not be a 302 (temporary) redirect.

The attribution link should target TrustedParts.com pages as follows:

  • When displaying details about a single part, you should target the corresponding part or search page on TrustedParts.com. The address for this page will be included in the API response. See Links in API Responses.
  • When displaying details for multiple parts, there are a few options:
    • Targeting the TrustedParts.com home page (opens new window)
    • Targeting the corresponding part or search pages. The addresses for these pages will be included in the API responses. See Links in API Responses.
    • If you are a component manufacturer, you could target your TrustedParts.com landing page. You can determine the web address of your landing page by going to our Manufacturer Directory page and clicking on your name. Note: If you are not an ECIA Member Manufacturer, your landing page will be listed in the All Manufacturers section of the Manufacturer Directory page. If you need help obtaining the web address of your landing page, please contact us.

TrustedParts.com API responses include a section for Links. The links included there are directly related to the search terms you include in a TrustedParts.com API request. For example, if you were searching for Digi International and part number XKA2C-Z7T-U, the response would include a link to the TrustedParts.com page for that part.

The Links section of TrustedParts.com API responses will include multiple links, one for each search term and manufacturer combination and one designated as Primary. If you're performing multi-part searches and would like to provide multiple links back to TrustedParts.com, feel free to use the links for individual parts. If you are performing single-part searches or only want to provide one link back to TrustedParts.com, please use the link designated as Primary and ignore the others.

Here are sample Links sections from JSON format responses:
