One of the primary objectives for our websites is to make it easy for users to find relevant information fast. The header and footer have been designed to support that. Therefore, a consistent usage of these elements is important. The main purpose of the header is to hold the first level of navigation and the website’s search functionality.
Do not place any additional content and functionality in the header and footer that is not specified in the templates. The header and footer are different between the country sites’ templates and the .com site templates to suit the specific needs for the different websites.
