Rapid Trademark Usage Policy

The following Trademark Usage Policy will show you the proper use of Rapid, Inc.’s trademarks.

A. Purpose

Rapid, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of computer software for the management and configuration of Internet web servers. Rapid has adopted this Trademark Usage Policy to maintain the integrity of the Rapid trademarks.

To protect our consumers, Rapid works are to assure that Rapid’s trademarks identify Rapid as the source of Rapid’s high quality products and services. For this reason, Rapid prohibits the use of its trademarks in a manner that could confuse or mislead the public. Prohibited uses include the development, adoption, or registration of names, logos, trademarks, symbols, phrases, brands, domain names or other business, product or service identifier that could be confused with any of Rapid’s trademarks.

Rapid’s trademarks may be used for journalistic purposes, to refer to Rapid or Rapid’s products and services, or other non-commercial purposes as long as this Trademark Usage Policy is strictly followed. Any commercial use of the Rapid trademarks must be specifically granted by Rapid through a written agreement.

Rapid may replace, update or modify our trademarks or this Trademark Usage Policy at any time. Please check our Web site frequently for changes. We appreciate your cooperation.

B. General Principles

Rapid requests that you observe the following principles when using our trademarks:

Maintain the Integrity of Our Trademarks. Any use of the Rapid trademarks must not disparage Rapid or its trademarks, products or services.

Clearly Identify Sponsorship or Endorsement. Use of the Rapid trademarks must not mislead the public as to an organization's affiliation with Rapid or Rapid’s sponsorship or endorsement of a company and/or products or services.

Apply the Trademark and Service Mark Symbols Correctly. Always use the registered trademark and service mark symbol "®" when referring to our registered trademarks (e.g. Rapid®). Use the unregistered trademark symbol "TM" when referring to our unregistered trademarks. You must use the proper symbol with each of our trademarks, and apply the symbols consistent with these Policy instructions, in every copy of communication, document, packaging or other material in which our mark appears, regardless of the medium.

Connect our Trademarks with Rapid, Inc. Always provide the following notice at least once within each copy of the communication, document, packaging or other material referencing any Rapid mark:

[Identify mark(s) used] [is a trademark/are trademarks] of Rapid, Inc. For example: RAPID® is a trademark of Rapid, Inc.

Keep Rapid’s Trademarks Clear, Separate and Distinct. The Rapid trademarks must be used separately from other logos, trademarks or service trademarks, and may not be used as part of the name for any other organization or its products or services. No one, not even a licensed partner of Rapid, may use a name for itself, its products or services that incorporates, or is confusingly similar to, any Rapid mark. Another company's mark can be used in context with a Rapid mark to indicate a relationship between Rapid’s products and services and those of the other company (e.g., Acme Systems® utilizes RAPID® software).

5. Apply the Trademark Symbols in the Correct Places
The appropriate trademark symbol must be used the first time a mark appears in a document, communication, or advertisement and in all prominent appearances of a mark.

6. Apply the Trademark Symbols in the Correct Places
Text: The appropriate trademark symbol must be used the first time a mark appears and in all prominent appearances of a mark.

Packaging and other uses: The appropriate trademark symbol must be used every time the trademark appears.

7. Proper Use of Word Trademarks
Separate Our Trademarks from Others' Trademarks: Rapid’s trademarks must be used alone, without other logos, trademarks or service trademarks. They may not be combined with others' trademarks. However, other logos or trademarks can be used in connection with Rapid’s trademarks when indicating a relationship between Rapid, its products or services and another party or its products or services.

8. Proper Use of Name
Always use the full, proper trademarked brand names in all communications. For example:

Incorrect Use Correct Use
Rapid RAPID®
Rapid® platform RAPID® platform
Rapid® Deliver RAPID® Deliver
@ Work Rapid @WorkTM

9. Distinguish Our Brand Names from Our Corporate Name
A trademark is used to identify a brand. A trade name is a corporate name used to identify an organization or company. “Rapid” can be used as a trademark or a trade name. Use the appropriate trademark symbol when using "Rapid" as a trademark to identify the source of one of our products (e.g., "the Rapid® software platform"). You do not need to use a trademark symbol when using "Rapid" to generally refer to our company, Rapid, Inc.

10. Trademarks within Rapid Software
Our trademarks are present on a number of components within our end-user software programs. These trademarks may not be removed or altered.

11. Third Party Trademarks
Some of Rapid’s products include technology used under license from third party licensors. You may not use any such third party trademarks without express permission from the owner.

Do not use another company's trademark to show endorsement, approval or an association with that company without its written approval.
