Instagrid Trademark Guidelines

1. Purpose

Instagrid GmbH (henceforth “Instagrid”) has a portfolio of trademarks that includes logos, images, designs, colors, words, slogans, product packaging and product shapes. Instagrid’s trademarks are valuable intellectual property (“IP”) that must be protected and used in accordance with these Guidelines.

These Instagrid Trademark Guidelines (henceforth “Guidelines”) are for authorized resellers, customers, licensees, and other parties (each henceforth “Authorized User”) interested in using Instagrid’s trademarks. If you have an authorization to use Instagrid’s trademarks or logos under terms of a separate written use permission document (henceforth “Permission Document”) from Instagrid, please follow specific terms as specified in your Permission Document. If your Permission Document does not provide usage guidelines, or if certain terms are missing from that Permission Document, then terms of these Guidelines shall apply in addition to any terms of the Permission Document.

2. General Conditions

You are not authorized to use Instagrid’s trademarks unless you have prior written permission from Instagrid to do so. Any use of Instagrid’s corporate logo and other brand assets is limited to prior written permission by Instagrid. Authorized User must use Instagrid’s trademarks in accordance with the most recent version of these Guidelines.

By using Instagrid’s trademarks, you acknowledge that Instagrid is the sole owner of the trademarks, and you agree not to interfere or challenge Instagrid’s rights to the trademarks, including challenging Instagrid’s use or registration of the trademarks. The goodwill derived from using any Instagrid’s trademark inures to the benefit of Instagrid, and it belongs exclusively to Instagrid. Except for the limited right to use Instagrid’s trademarks as expressly permitted under these Guidelines, no other rights are granted to you by Instagrid.
