Our trademarks are important for our brand identity and the integrity of the products and services we offer. This policy sets out how Pain Reprocessing Therapy Center LLC (“PRTC” or “us”) or our affiliates and licensors allows licensees of our trademarks such as yourself or any organization you represent to use our trademarks. This policy applies to all third-party uses of and references to our trademarks, service marks brand names, logos, slogans, or other identifiers of PRTC or our affiliates or licensors, or any products or services offered by us or our affiliates or licensors (collectively, our “Trademarks”).
This policy applies in addition to any further agreements you may have with us, our affiliates, or our licensees regarding the use of any of our Trademarks. If you have any such additional agreements with any of us, the terms of those agreements will prevail over this policy to the extent they conflict.
If you have any questions or would like further information regarding our trademarks or the requirements of this policy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Dos and Don’ts
We do not object to most uses of our Trademarks to identify us and/or our products or services. However, if you do use such Trademarks for this purpose, you must follow these guidelines:
– You cannot suggest that we endorse, sponsor, or are in any way affiliated with you or your products and services, unless we have given you explicit prior written permission to do so.
– You cannot combine our Trademarks with any of your own corporate names, brand names, trademarks, logos, or other identifiers. This includes copying our trade dress or using trade dress that is confusingly similar to ours. (Trade dress is the general ‘look and feel’ of our brand properties, including our website.)
– You cannot alter our Trademarks in any way. For word marks, this means you must display the entire text of the Trademark each time you use it, and that you must spell the Trademark text correctly. For logo marks, this means you must display the logo in its original proportions, colors (except in greyscale, which is acceptable).
– You cannot use our Trademarks in conjunction with any other trademark, whether owned by you or a third party, that is confusingly similar to our Trademark which you use.
– You cannot display a Trademark in a way that we determine is misleading, unfair, defamatory, infringing, libelous, disparaging, obscene or otherwise objectionable to us (although you can use a Trademark to provide opinion, commentary, or criticism).
– You cannot display a Trademark in a way that suggests a common, generic, or descriptive meaning to the Trademark.
– You must distinguish our Trademark from the surrounding text or graphics in some way. For word marks, this means you can capitalize the first letter or the entire text, place it in bold, italics, or quotes, or use a different color font for the Trademark. For logo marks, this means you must provide a minimum spacing of 25 pixels or two 12-point characters from any other elements.
– If we provide you with any additional requirements regarding the use of one of our Trademarks at any time, you must adhere to these requirements within a commercially reasonable timeframe after they are communicated to you.
This policy grants you only a non-exclusive right to use our trademarks. You do not have the right to sub-license or transfer your rights under this policy in any way. Your use of our Trademarks does not in any way grant you an ownership interest in our Trademarks. Should such an interest arise by operation of law, your use of our Trademark constitutes your irrevocable agreement that you have and will assign such ownership interest to us.
We will evaluate your compliance with the requirements of this policy in our sole and absolute discretion. If we determine that you have violated this policy in any way, we will provide written notice of such violation to you, and we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your rights to use any of our Trademarks in such an event.
We comply with all legal requirements regarding the use of trademarks in domain names and advertising materials in the countries in which we advertise, and we expect you to do the same. In the United States, this means that, in general, you must follow these guidelines in addition to those set forth above when using our Trademarks in advertising:
– You cannot use our Trademarks in the copy of any advertising materials for your own products or services, unless you are an authorized reseller of our products or services, or the advertising is for a site that is primarily for informational purposes.
– Always follow the applicable trademark usage policies of the provider of the search engine platform on which you run advertisements. These policies may vary depending on the country or market at which your ads are targeted.
– Do not include repetitive Trademark keywords, or include Trademarks in webpage metadata, title tags, or domain or subdomain names.
