  4. Using appropriate vs. inappropriate descriptors
    Reliabilityweb.com trademarks identify specific products and services. Do not refer to training, assessments, examinations, evaluations, applications, services, or hardware devices that map to or work with Reliabilityweb.com brands and products incorrectly. For example, do not refer to training or services that maps to Uptime® Elements framework as “Uptime® Elements Training,” “Uptime® Elements services,” or “Uptime® Elements assessments.” If necessary, these types of products/services can be referred to by their relationship to the Uptime® Elements system by inserting the words “mapped” between the name Uptime® Elements and the type of product/ service designed to work with Uptime® Elements.

    Correct: Beta Corporations’ Maintenance Excellence Training is an UPTIME® ELEMENTS - mapped training workshop.
    Incorrect: Beta Corporations’ Maintenance Excellence Training is an Uptime® Elements training workshop.

    Correct: This presentation includes UPTIME® ELEMENTS - mapped graphics used by permission
    Incorrect: Beta Corporation included some Uptime® Elements, graphics in its presentation.
  6. Naming guidelines for related products, services and training
    Any product, service, training or application you develop related to Uptime® Elements or Certified Reliability Leader®—name, logo, description, screenshots—must be unique and free of Reliabilityweb.com trademarks unless (1) you’ve secured prior written permission from Reliabilityweb.com through a license or equivalent (though such licenses are not generally available in this context); or (2) you’re using a Reliabilityweb.com trademark (not including logos) to describe the features or functionality of your product, service, training or application without suggesting that the product, service, training or application is actually created or offered by Reliabilityweb.com. The name of your product, service, training or application, however, cannot begin with the Reliabilityweb.com brand at issue. In addition, Reliabilityweb.com logos and graphics cannot be used as a source identifier for your product, service, training or application.

    For example, you cannot name your Training “Uptime® Elements Training” or “Uptime® Elements Assessment;” however, if you are an Reliability Partner in good standing, it would be acceptable to name your training “RCM Training mapped to UPTIME® ELEMENTS” or “Planning and Scheduling optimized for UPTIME® ELEMENTS” as long as you do not use the Reliabilityweb.com or Uptime® Elements logos or graphics or otherwise suggest that the training is created by Reliabilityweb. com.
