The organic search results as well as the sponsored ads displayed on the search results page are provided by our technology partner Bing, governed through an agreement with its syndication partner RISE (Rise Code Ltd., Menachem Begin Road 121, Tel Aviv 6701203, Israel). GOOD has no influence on neither the organic search results nor the ads provided through Bing’s advertising network except the option to block any inappropriate ads.
