SEOgenie Trademarks and Brand Usage Policy

This document (the Policy) sets the conditions under which you may use the registered and unregistered trademarks, service marks, logotypes, trade dress, trade names, product names, images, and slogans (collectively, the Marks), which belong to seogenie Inc. or its affiliated companies (seogenie, we), in promotional, advertising, instructional, or reference materials. We are happy when people use our Marks but you have to understand that seogenie`s Marks are valuable assets for us and we wish to make the rules of such use clear for everyone.

What is the Intent of this Policy?

This Policy is intended to balance competing interests and provide clarity on what is acceptable practice for the Marks use. On the one hand, we need to ensure that the seogenies Marks are and remain reliable indicators of the quality, safety and reliability that customers expect from our official offerings. seogenie highly values the trust of its customers, potential customers, vendors and partners, and we protect our trademark rights to ensure those expectations can be met now and in the future. On the other hand, we would like to ensure that our customers, potential customers, partners, authorized resellers, vendors and the public at large have the freedom to use seogenies Marks in ways that are reasonable and unlikely to create confusion and have guidance on those uses that we consider acceptable.

The Policy applies to all uses of seogenie`s Marks and is in addition to the terms of any other permission we may have granted you regarding use of our Marks, unless otherwise specifically stated in the written consent to such use signed by seogenie.

Except for the limited rights to use as expressly permitted under this Policy, no other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise. If you wish to use any of seogenie`s Marks in a manner that is not expressly permitted by this Policy, or otherwise permitted by a legal exception such as fair use, please contact us at We will be happy to consider your request. No matter how your use is authorized, any goodwill generated by use of the Marks shall inure solely to the benefit of seogenie.

seogenie may review this Policy from time to time and update its provisions. Please consult this Policy regularly and keep pace.
