Service Marks/Permitted Use of COE Service Marks

COE service marks identify COE products and services and let the public know the source of those products and services. You may make fair use of our service marks in advertising and promotional materials, and in referencing our products and services (for example, in a magazine article) without our permission, provided you follow standard trademark usage practices and provide proper attribution. Other uses require our written permission. If you are in doubt as to whether you need our permission for a specific type of use, please ask us. You may not use COE logos or “design” service marks (as opposed to our service marks consisting solely of words) under any circumstances without our prior written authorisation. In addition, you may not use COE service marks, whether design or word marks, in the following ways:

  • in a non-COE service name or publication title
  • in, as, or as part of, your own service or trademarks
  • to identify products or services that are not COE’s
  • in a manner likely to cause confusion
  • in a manner that implies inaccurately that we sponsor or endorse, or are otherwise connected with, your own activities, products, and services
  • as hidden or embedded text in web pages in an effort to cause a search of COE marks to result in a hit on a page not maintained by COE in a manner disparaging of COE.
