Trademark Requirements

SOLIDIFI® Third-Party Trademark and Logo Usage Requirements

These Trademark and Logo Usage Requirements (“Usage Requirements”) set forth Solidifi® US Inc.’s rules for third parties using or referring to SOLIDIFI®’s brand names, trademarks, service marks, product and service names, logos, and slogans (collectively referred to as “SOLIDIFI® Marks”). They apply to all non-SOLIDIFI® parties using or making reference to SOLIDIFI® Marks unless a separate license agreement applies. Other requirements apply to SOLIDIFI® licensees and are set forth in a specific license agreement.

General

SOLIDIFI®’s Marks are SOLIDIFI® intellectual property and are important and valuable assets of the company. Any use of SOLIDIFI® Marks that is inconsistent with these Usage Requirements, or other unauthorized use of SOLIDIFI® Marks or marks that are confusingly similar to SOLIDIFI® Marks, may violate SOLIDIFI®’s legal rights. SOLIDIFI® appreciates your compliance with these Usage Requirements and will take steps to protect the SOLIDIFI® Marks against improper use and infringement. SOLIDIFI® reserves the right to object to any use of SOLIDIFI® Marks (or anything confusingly similar to a SOLIDIFI® Mark) that SOLIDIFI® deems to be unlawful under the circumstances, even if that use is not expressly prohibited by these Usage Requirements.

Fair Use of SOLIDIFI® Marks

You may refer to SOLIDIFI® products and services by their appropriate SOLIDIFI® Mark (other than logos and stylized marks), so long as such references (a) are truthful, fair, and not misleading, and (b) comply with these Usage Requirements.

SOLIDIFI® Logos and Stylized Marks

You should never use SOLIDIFI® logos or stylizations of SOLIDIFI® Marks unless you have a license agreement or other explicit written permission from SOLIDIFI® to do so.

Proper Use of Trademark Symbols

Always use the proper trademark symbol (TM, sm, or ®) immediately following at least the first reference to the trademark on any page.

The exception to the above rule is when the “SOLIDIFI®” name is used as our company name, as opposed to an identifier of one of our products or services. In this case you should not use the ® symbol.

Note the correct spelling of “SOLIDIFI®” (not Solidify).

Examples of Correct Uses of Some SOLIDIFI® Marks

The following examples illustrate the correct use of (TM), (sm), or ® and the use of the trademark as an adjective with the correct generic noun or phrase:

  • SOLIDIFI® products and services
  • SOLIDIFI® ValuesTM

Check the list of SOLIDIFI® trademarks below to verify how the SOLIDIFI® Marks should appear.

Acknowledgment of Trademark Rights

Assuming your use of a SOLIDIFI® trademark is permitted, you should always acknowledge that Solidifi® US Inc. owns the trademark. If it is not clear from the context of the use of the SOLIDIFI® Mark, you should include a separate acknowledgment. The acknowledgment should appear in legible type in any materials in which a SOLIDIFI® Mark appears. The following language is acceptable:

“SOLIDIFI® and [Insert SOLIDIFI® Marks used] are trademarks and/or registered trademarks of Solidifi® US Inc..”

Materials that mention SOLIDIFI® only:

“SOLIDIFI® is a registered trademark of Solidifi® US Inc..”

Remember that the inclusion of a trademark symbol and acknowledgment does not turn an improper use of a SOLIDIFI® Mark into a proper use or entitle you to use any SOLIDIFI® Mark in a way prohibited by law or otherwise not allowed under these Usage Requirements.

Prohibitions

  • Do not use any SOLIDIFI® Mark, and do not adopt a “look and feel” with respect to any publication or Web site, in a way that might cause confusion about the relationship between SOLIDIFI® and any other party or any non-SOLIDIFI® product or service (e.g., as to source, origin, sponsorship, or endorsement).
  • Do not incorporate any SOLIDIFI® Mark into your own product names, service names, trademarks, logos, or company names, and do not adopt marks or logos that are confusingly similar to any SOLIDIFI® Marks.
  • Do not use or reproduce any SOLIDIFI® logos unless you have explicit written permission to do so.
  • Do not use any SOLIDIFI® Marks as a meta tag for your web pages.
  • Do not use any SOLIDIFI® Mark or any confusingly similar words as your domain names or as parts of your domain names.
  • Do not use any SOLIDIFI® Mark or any confusingly similar words as the alphabetic equivalent of a phone number.
  • Do not use SOLIDIFI® Marks as Internet search “keywords” or in any other way that is intended to or has the effect of directing traffic to a non-SOLIDIFI® Web site.
  • Do not state or imply that you have or are claiming rights in any SOLIDIFI® Mark.
  • Do not use SOLIDIFI® Marks in any improper way that would disparage Solidifi® US Inc., its subsidiaries, its products, or its services (i.e., unfair competition, false or misleading, etc.).
