Copyright © Elizabeth L. Hamilton 2000 – 2015, all rights reserved.
Character-in-Action® is a registered trademark of Character-in-Action®. Please review the
Character-in-Action® Trademark Usage Policy before using any Character-in-Action® logo or trademark.
Character-in-Action® Trademark Usage Policy:
This Trademark Usage Policy will show you the proper usage of Character-in-Action® trademarks (“Marks”) and logos. The terms of this section apply to the entire Character-in-Action® Web site.
Use the Correct Symbol:
When using a Character-in-Action® Mark in text form, use the correct ® symbol.
The basic rule is if you are using a Character-in-Action® Mark that is registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, the ® symbol should be displayed. Once a Character-in-Action® Mark is correctly attributed on a document or web page, it is not ordinarily necessary to mark subsequent appearances of the trademark in the same piece. Every appearance of a Character-in-Action® Mark in stylized form or design (“Character-in-Action® logo”) should also appear with the appropriate ® symbol, and may be used only under license from Character-in-Action®.
Do Not Alter Character-in-Action® Marks or Character-in-Action® Logos:
When using a Character-in-Action® Mark, never vary the spelling, add or delete hyphens, make one word two, or use a possessive or plural form of the Character-in-Action® Mark. When using a Character-in-Action® logo, never modify the design, add or delete any words, change any colors or proportions. Only Character-in-Action® products and services may be used in conjunction with a Character-in-Action® logo.
Character-in-Action® Product Names:
No third party logo or mark can be used in conjunction with the Character-in-Action® Marks for Character-in-Action® product names. In other words, do not combine the Character-in-Action® Marks with third party trademarks.
Wherever a Character-in-Action® Mark or Character-in-Action® logo appears with another company trademark or logo, the Character-in-Action® Mark or Character-in-Action® logo must be at least as large as the trademark or logo of the other company.
Using Footnotes for Correct Attribution:
It is the policy of Character-in-Action® to attribute Character-in-Action® Mark and Character-in-Action® logo use by placing the information in a footnote as follows:
Examples: “_________ is a trademark or a registered trademark of Character-in-Action®.
There is no “boilerplate” footnote. The black space should contain a list of all Character-in-Action® Marks and Character-in-Action® logos that appear in that particular piece. If all Character-in-Action® Marks and Character-in-Action® logos that appear are registered trademarks, then the footnote should indicate as such. Footnotes should always be complete sentences, and ordinarily appear on the copyright page, on the last page of the material.
Power Point and Other Presentations:
Character-in-Action® Marks and Character-in-Action® logos should always be attributed with the proper symbol and footnoted on all presentations that are displayed to the public (sales, trade shows, seminars, web sites, etc.) If a presentation is used internally, the Character-in-Action® Marks and Character-in-Action® logos should be attributed but need not be footnoted.
Third Party Licensors:
Some Character-in-Action® products include technology used under license from third party licensors. You may not use any such third party trademark without express permission from the owner.
Reservation of Rights:
Elizabeth L. Hamilton is the owner of all right, title, and interest in the Character-in-Action® Marks and Character-in-Action® logos. No person or entity may reproduce or use (or authorize the reproduction or use of) the Character-in-Action® Marks or Character-in-Action® logos in any manner other than expressly authorized by Elizabeth L. Hamilton. Unauthorized use of Character-in-Action® Marks or Character-in-Action® logos is strictly prohibited.
Elizabeth L. Hamilton may, at her sole discretion, modify the Character-in-Action® Marks or Character-in-Action® logos at any time. Please refer to the Character-in-Action® Mark Chart periodically to ensure your compliance. In order to assure compliance and quality of control, Elizabeth L. Hamilton may request that you provide samples of any marketing, advertising, or other material that includes the Character-in-Action® or Character-in-Action® logos.
