A third-party business that has or previously had a contract with the Institute may make that factual statement in its marketing materials.
There must be no implication of sponsorship of or endorsement by the Institute of the third party’s goods or services (or vice versa). The third-party business can list the Institute’s name in the client list, but cannot use any trademarks.
If a vendor would like to use images of the Institute in marketing materials, approval from Licensing and Trademarks is required.
Keep in mind…
Trademarks are not to be used in conjunction with alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, gambling products, national flags, political symbols, and/or religious symbols.
Trademarks cannot be printed in red or used on red items.
The letters G and T cannot appear side-by-side on products. They must be interlocking.
Trademarks are not to be used in conjunction with other brands, names, or trademarks in a way that might appear as an endorsement by the Institute.
Designs using the trademarks must be approved prior to printing or manufacturing.
All items and materials bearing the trademarks must be printed, produced, and manufactured by an official licensee.
A registered trademark symbol, either ® or TM, is to be used next to every trademarked logo. The symbol should appear near the bottom right of the trademarked logo.
