Graphic, text and search widgets may be comprised of static elements, such as trademarks, images, and icons, and dynamic elements, which include, but are not limited to, photographs, images, ratings, reviews, reports, questions, summaries, text, active links or other source identifiers, and employee or employer related information or other similar materials.
