Please also note that "Dunelm Mill" is outdated branding - Dunelm should be referred to at all times.
Paid Search Policy
Affiliates are required to refrain from registering, appearing or bidding on our pure brand terms, combined brand and generic terms or misspellings, unless PPC rights have been agreed for a set period of time.

Affiliates are not permitted to register URLs with Dunelm’s trademarked terms or any misspellings or reformulations contained in their domain.
Any affiliate seen to be purchasing such domain names will be immediately and permanently removed from the programme and any commissions due will be reversed.
