The Turbot Marks may be used for the purposes of open source discussion, development and support of Turbot’ open source projects, subject to the terms of this Trademark Usage Policy. Any other use of the Turbot Marks requires a separate trademark license agreement with Turbot. To inquire about a trademark license, please see below for contact information.

Any use of or reference to the Turbot Marks that is inconsistent with this Trademark Usage Policy is strictly prohibited, and is considered a material breach of the terms of the applicable open source licenses, which may result in, without limitation to other available remedies, immediate termination of your rights and licenses under the terms of such open source licenses.

The Turbot Marks “Do’s”

  • Use the Turbot Text Marks in a form that distinguishes them from surrounding text, such as by capitalization, bold or italic fonts, or with quotation marks. Any use of registered trademarks (as indicated in the Trademark List) should include the “®” symbol immediately after the first and/or most prominent usage (e.g., “Turbot® allows you to query, visualize and alert on metrics…”). Any use of unregistered trademarks should include a “TM” immediately after in all instances. These trademark notices should not be altered. Do not use the “®” symbol in countries where the Turbot Marks have not been registered. Trademark rights vary from country to country.
  • You must include the following attribution statement prominently in all materials using the Turbot Marks, including but not limited to websites, publications, splash screens, screenshots or in documentation: “The Turbot Marks are trademarks of Turbot HQ, Inc, and are used with Turbot’ permission.

  • Use the Turbot Marks only as adjectives followed by a generic name/noun (not as a verb or noun).

The Turbot Marks “Don’ts”

  • Do not alter the Turbot Marks, including modifying any logo or design, adding or deleting any words, or changing any color or proportions.
