Trademark Guidelines

Last Updated: November 2019

These CartMagician Trademarks Usage Guidelines (these “Guidelines) outline how we permit the use of CartMagician’s trademarks, brandnames, tradenames, service marks, service names, domain names and logos (collectively, “CartMagician Trademarks).

We have developed these Guidelines with the following goals in mind: We wish to make it easy for anyone to use the CartMagician Trademarks for Community-Oriented Efforts in a manner that helps to spread and improve CartMagician.

Our License

In plain English: If you have a community project, then it’s ok to use CartMagician’s name as long as there is no suggestion that the project is affiliated with CartMagician.

Subject to the terms and conditions hereunder, we grant to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, revocable license to use and display CartMagician Trademarks, solely in accordance with these Guidelines and other written instructions provided by us from time to time, and solely as a part of a Community Oriented Effort.

The CartMagician Trademarks shall not be displayed in a manner that implies that the project is affiliated with CartMagician. This doesn’t just mean that to comply with these Guidelines; you can write, “we are not affiliated with CartMagician” in your footer. Instead, you must refrain altogether from using misleading business practices such as using a domain name comprising solely of the word “CartMagician” or just using our logo as your website’s logo.

Restrictions

In plain English: Don’t make people think you’re affiliated with CartMagician.

Your project must have discernible differences from CartMagician’s Software. Meaning, it is not a redistribution of the Software.
Your use of the CartMagician Trademarks is not displayed in a manner that implies that your project, products and/or services are endorsed or sponsored by CartMagician. <
For example, organizing an “CartMagician Support Forum” might be confusing, and therefore we request that you state that your website is a “Support Forum For CartMagician.”
Using the CartMagician Trademarks’ colors as a part of your website’s branding is ok, but you shall not do so if this misleads people to think that the website is a formal CartMagician site.
Any deceptive practices, such as using domain names that are meant to mislead people to think that they are using an official CartMagician website, are prohibited.

Specifically, you may not change the colour proportion, or font of any of CartMagician Trademarks, or make any additions to or remove any elements from CartMagician Trademarks.
CartMagician Trademarks shall not be placed on any background that interferes with the readability or display of that CartMagician Trademarks.
CartMagician Trademarks may not be displayed or used in any manner together with or in the context of any content which is unlawful, defamatory, libelous, harassing, offensive, indecent, pornographic, abusive, discriminatory, fraudulent, threatening or vulgar; or which harms or may harm the goodwill of CartMagician (in CartMagician’s reasonable discretion). The above examples of unlawful and prohibited use do not constitute an exhaustive list
