When referring to NiwTech products or services use the applicable Trademark, and ensure that such references: (i) are truthful, fair, and not misleading; and (ii) comply with these Guidelines. Note that these Guidelines may be modified by NiwTech from time-to-time in its sole discretion. Specifically, ensure that you:
“NiwTech” is not only a trademark used to identify NiwTech’s products and services; it also serves as NiwTech’s company name. Therefore, the word “NiwTech” is generally used in two (2) different ways: (i) as a trade name to identify NiwTech Ltd. the company; or (ii) as a trademark to identify its various products. “NiwTech” is used as a trade name when NiwTech Ltd. the company is taking some action or referenced as having some attribute (e.g. “NiwTech announced new store”). When referenced as a trade name, there is no need to include a trademark symbol after “NiwTech”. “NiwTech” is used as a trademark when NiwTech is an adjective used as a brand name for its products and services (e.g. “NiwTech® Computer Repairs”). When referenced as a trademark, include the proper trademark symbol after “NiwTech”.
Web site domain names that include the term “NiwTech” combined with other distinguishing words, numbers or symbols, may use the word marks as part of the domain name provided that such use complies with the following requirements:
Except for the limited right to use as expressly permitted under these terms, no other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise.
NiwTech does not review or specifically grant permission to use its trademarks in book titles, series titles, website titles, or other titles. Publishers should consult their own legal counsel regarding proper referential use of others’ trademarks in their titles. Titles that refer to NiwTech trademarks are generally appropriate so long as: (1) the NiwTech trademark does not appear as the first word or otherwise as the most prominent part of the title; (2) the NiwTech trademark is not used in any other manner that might suggest NiwTech’s affiliation, sponsorship, or certification (e.g., using NiwTech trademarks as part of logos, designs, or other graphics); (3) the book cover does not include any NiwTech logos, logotypes, icons, trade dress, or other designs; (4) the book includes a prominent disclaimer of association with NiwTech; and (5) NiwTech’s trademarks are properly marked with the appropriate a TM or ® symbol and attributed to NiwTech.
You must not use any NiwTech trademarks, logos or designs other than those listed on the NiwTech trademark list as updated by NiwTech from time to time.
You must not use NiwTech trademarks on any promotional merchandise (e.g. shirts, key chains, mugs, mouse pads, etc.).
The size and placement of the NiwTech trademarks must emphasize clearly that you are an independent entity, and not part of NiwTech. In all cases, the visual affiliation between your company and NiwTech must clearly indicate the independent nature of the relationship between the two companies.
You may not represent your company as “official,” “exclusive,” “approved,” or “franchised” by NiwTech.
Depiction of NiwTech products and services must be a fair representation of them as marketed and distributed by NiwTech. You may not use any NiwTech trademarks in any material, which contains subject matter, which NiwTech may deem, in our opinion, in poor taste. Further, you may not use the NiwTech trademarks in a manner or context that reflects unfavorably upon NiwTech or which will diminish or damage NiwTech’s goodwill, in NiwTech’s reasonable judgment.
You must not make any claims about NiwTech, its products or services, other than presenting current information, which has been published by NiwTech.
You are not authorized by NiwTech to use any other third party marks, even if they are used in connection with the NiwTech products or services.
