Trademark Policy

Last updated: October 2020

This Policy covers general rules for referring to GlobalReach Technology and using its trademarks, service marks, and logos (collectively, “GlobalReach Technology Marks”).

The following is a non-exhaustive list of GlobalReach Technology Marks:

Trademark guidelines for several GlobalReach Technology Marks are linked below.

GlobalReach Technology reserves the right to change the terms of this Policy or any guidelines at any time, in its sole discretion, by posting the updated Policy or guidelines to the GlobalReach Technology website. To ask any questions about this Policy or to report any unauthorised use of GlobalReach Technology Marks, please email [insert email].

General Rule: Permission Required

As a rule, a trademark license is required in order to use GlobalReach Technology Marks. Except for the three exceptions outlined below, this Policy does not count as “permission to use” any trademarks, and there are no “open source” pre-approved use cases. To request permission to use any GlobalReach Technology Mark, please email [insert email].

Exceptions

Without a separate trademark license:

  • You may use GlobalReach Technology Marks in text for the sole purpose of referring to or describing GlobalReach Technology’s website, products, and services. For example: if you have a product or service that is compatible with the  GlobalReach Technology platform, you may use “ GlobalReach Technology” to describe the compatibility, such as “runs on,” “for use on,” or “compatible with” the  GlobalReach Technology platform.
  • If you use the GlobalReach Technology platform, you should add the “Powered by  GlobalReach Technology” logo in the footer of each page of your website, and the logo should include a live link to the  GlobalReach Technology website. See the Powered by GlobalReach Technology logo page for variants of this logo and instructions on how to add it to your instance.
  • If you offer services and/or products that support the GlobalReach Technology platform, you may use the “ GlobalReach Technology” word mark in the path of a URL for your website for such services and/or products. For clarity, this exception applies solely to (1) the “ GlobalReach Technology” word mark and not to any other Marks and (2) use in the path of a URL; you may not use the “ GlobalReach Technology” word mark or any other Mark in a website domain. For example:
  •  globalreachtechnology.yourdomain.org
  •  globalreachtechnology.yourdomain.org
  •  globalreachtechnologyyourdomain.org
  •  yourdomain-globalreachtechnology.com
