A: It's not recommended to use the name of a resort or company in the name of your private Facebook group or ads without their permission as it could potentially infringe on their trademark. It's best to check with the resort or company to see if they allow the use of their name in such a way. Additionally, if you do use their name, it's important to make it clear that your group is not affiliated with or endorsed by the resort or company in any way.
