WHAT IS A TRADEMARK?
A trademark is a word, name, symbol or design (or a combination thereof) that identifies the goods or services of a specific person or company, and distinguishes them from the goods and services of others. A trademark helps its owner to assure consumers of the quality and unique attributes of such products and services, thus helping the promotion of those goods and services.
ServicePal Inc. is the exclusive owner of its Trademarks, and we reserve all rights not expressly granted in these Guidelines. Particularly, all the goodwill derived from using our Trademarks shall inure solely to the benefit of ServicePal Inc.

SPECIFIC “DO” AND “DON’T DO” GUIDELINES:
Use our Trademarks with permission.

Include appropriate attribution.
Always include the appropriate trademark symbol (® or ™, as indicated near each of our Trademarks) near any of our Trademarks in the most prominent place where you use such Trademarks in any document.
Usage rules for our logos.
In using our logos (i) do not alter or distort the appearance of the logo in any way, for example, by adding your own design elements or colors, or changing the font, (ii) use our logos exactly as they appear on our website at www.servicepal.com, without changing their size (iii) allow for clear space around our logos, (iv) maintain the legibility of our logos and keep them sharp, clear and well-produced, and (v) do not use them for decorative purposes in marketing or packaging materials, or in your website.
Distinguish our Trademarks from your trademarks.
Do not place your company name, trademarks, service marks or product names immediately next to (or combined with) our Trademarks. Keep our word Trademarks distinguishable from the surrounding text – acceptable ways to do that include capitalizing our word Trademarks, enclosing them in quotes, and/or using a different font or style for our Trademarks.
In describing your services or products in reference to ServicePal Inc.’s products and services, make sure that (i) the reference phrase you use is accurate and complies with the requirements of these Guidelines, (ii) our Trademarks are clearly distinguished from your products and services names, and (iii) our Trademarks are not part of, mixed with, or incorporated into your company, or your products, services or domain names.
Do not use our Trademarks as the name of your company, products or as your domain name.
Do not use all or parts of our Trademarks in a manner that may imply sponsorship, affiliation or endorsement between ServicePal Inc. and your company, products or services, or that may dilute the distinctive nature of our Trademarks. For example, do not use company, product, website or domain names that combine our Trademarks with other words, terms or trademarks (e.g., naming your product “ServicePalxyz” or your website “ServicePalpartner.com”).
Do not copy the look and feel of ServicePal Inc.’s Trademarks, Website or product line.
Do not imitate our Trademarks, logos, logotypes, trade dress, or other elements of our product packaging and Web site in any of your advertising, product packaging, promotional and other materials. For example, in describing ServicePal Inc.’s services in connection with your products or services, do not use the font type we use for our logos so as to create an impression of association between ServicePal Inc. and your company. As another example, do not name your product “ServicePal Integrator,” “ServicePal Connector” or a similar name in marketing materials promoting our respective integrated products.
Do not alter our Trademarks.
You may not change the appearance of our Trademarks by abbreviating them, incorporating them into acronyms, changing their spelling, using them in parts, changing their looks, or using improper capitalization.
Use our Trademarks only as Adjectives or Proper Nouns.
Use our Trademarks as adjectives followed by the appropriate generic product noun describing the relevant product or service (e.g., “the ServicePal® iPad app is great”). You may also use the Trademarks without a modifier but only when describing the underlying product’s properties (e.g., “ServicePal® provides a cost-effective way to manage your service work” but not “ServicePal® works well”). NEVER USE OUR TRADEMARKS IN NOUN, VERB, PLURAL OR POSSESSIVE FORMS.
