Reliabilityweb - Guidelines for Using Reliabilityweb Trademarks

Thousands of customers around the world recognize and select the solutions of NetexpressUSA Inc. d/b/a Reliabilityweb.com and its affiliates (collectively referred to as “Reliabilityweb”) on the basis of Reliabilityweb's trademarks and service marks, which signify high-quality reliability and asset management products and services. Without these trademarks and service marks (collectively referred to as "trademarks"), consumers would not be able to distinguish Reliabilityweb products and services from those of other companies, nor would they be able to readily identify the superior quality that Reliabilityweb trademarks represent. Therefore, it is critically important that trademarks of Reliabilityweb are protected.

You must carefully consider Reliabilityweb's trademark usage guidelines when mentioning Reliabilityweb offerings in your materials or in connection with your own products or product names. You must always make a clear and unambiguous distinction between your own solutions, products, and/or services and the Reliabilityweb offerings mentioned.

Reliabilityweb accepts no responsibility for any violation of legal regulations regarding competition or trademarks by its partners, customers or any third party. In addition to these guidelines, country-specific regulations may apply.

Proper Use of Trademarks

Unregistered or pending trademarks bear the ™ symbol. Registered trademarks carry the ® symbol. A selection of Reliabilityweb trademarks, both registered and pending, as well as a selection of Reliabilityweb offering names, are listed above. Please use these names and their symbols according to the guidelines that follow.

The only use that does not require the symbols is a Web application or other onscreen presentation where the low resolution of the medium renders the symbol illegible. However, in such case please attribute Reliabilityweb trademarks used in this fashion on the attribution page of the application or presentation in accordance with the "Trademark Attribution" section of these guidelines.

To ensure correct use of Reliabilityweb trademarks, follow these guidelines:

  • Always refer to a trademark using the correct spelling with the correct capitalization. Do not alter the trademark in any way.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "ReliabilityWeb.com® products" and "Uptime® elements™ framework." It is correct to say "Reliabilityweb.com® products" and "Uptime® Elements™ framework." See the trademark list for correct spelling and capitalization.
  • Always use a trademark as a proper adjective, not a noun.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "You can use the Uptime® Elements™ to increase the reliability of your firms’ assets”. It is correct to say "You can use the Uptime® Elements™ framework to increase the reliability of your firm’s assets.”
  • Use a trademark as a proper adjective followed by a common noun descriptor.
    Examples of correct use are "Reliabilityweb.com ® offerings" and "Uptime® Elements™ materials." Always use an appropriate descriptor.
  • Include the appropriate symbol - ™ or ® - representing the trademark status.
    If repeated inclusion of the ™ or ® symbol is awkward or impractical, at a minimum you must include the symbol and the common-noun descriptor upon the first use of the trademark in the title (if the name appears in the title) and also in the text. Subsequent to this initial use, the symbol and descriptor need not appear with the name.
  • Do not use a trademark in possessive form.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "The Certified Reliability Leader®'s training materials". It is correct to say "the materials of the Certified Reliability Leader™”.
  • Do not use a trademark in plural form.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "The Company is purchasing three exams for Certified Reliability Leaders™. It is correct to say "The Company is purchasing three Certified Reliability Leader™ examinations.”
  • When referring to the Reliabilityweb.com corporate entity rather than the Reliabilityweb.com brand, trademark rules do not apply.
    That is, you do not use the ® symbol in statements such as "Reliabilityweb.com announced today," "Reliabilityweb.com provides solutions to customers," and "the Reliabilityweb.com training team." Similarly, you can use the possessive form "Reliabilityweb.com's" when referring to the company, not to the brand. For example, you may say "Reliabilityweb.com's vision" and "Reliabilityweb.com's years of experience."

Trademark Attribution

In any material that mentions any Reliabilityweb trademark, you must include the correct attribution statement based on the following:

"  is/are the trademark(s) or registered trademark(s) of NetexpressUSA Inc. d/b/a Reliabilityweb.com and its affiliates in the USA and in several other countries."

In your attribution statement, replace the placeholder phrase  with the names of the Reliabilityweb trademarks mentioned in your material. Place the statement either on the copyright page (which may be the case in a brochure) or at the end of a material if it has no copyright page (in an advertisement or a press release, for example).

If after reviewing the above Guidelines for Using Reliabilityweb Trademarks you still have a question about use, please direct your inquiry to legal@reliabilityweb.com. Reliabilityweb will make reasonable efforts to respond to your request. However, based on volume of requests you should allow several weeks for a response. In the absence of a response, the Guidelines for Using Reliabilityweb Trademarks shall govern any and all uses.

Designing Marketing Material

If you are a partner, customer, or other third party, always use your own proprietary design style when creating and producing a marketing piece. You must not copy the Reliabilityweb design style or borrow any Reliabilityweb design elements.

Guidelines for Using Reliabilityweb-Copyrighted Material

The use of original texts, graphics, images, screen shots, and other materials from Reliabilityweb sources must be approved by Reliabilityweb in writing. In addition, when using such materials, you must include a copyright notice - either in an adjacent area or as a footnote - to indicate Reliabilityweb's copyright.
