OPENSTACK RESTRICTED USE LOGO GUIDELINES[1]

We have created specific Restricted Use Logos for those who build their software or hardware solutions or cloud services with the OpenStack technology, those who create applications or hardware that integrate with or support the OpenStack technology, or those who provide training or consulting services.

Written permission, in the form of a license agreement, is required to use each of the logos below (collectively “Restricted Use Logos”) and the word mark OpenStack (“OpenStack Word Mark” or “Word Mark”) (collectively, the Restricted Use Logos and Word Mark are the “OpenStack Marks”) and shall only be granted if you meet the requirements specified below.

The following is a description of some of the requirements included in any license agreement granting permission to use a Restricted Use Logo and OpenStack Word Mark. Please consider whether you will be able to comply with these requirements before agreeing to the terms of the applicable OpenStack Trademark License Agreement to use a Restricted Use Logo and OpenStack Word Mark.

1. GENERAL GUIDELINES

The following general guidelines apply to a licensee’s use of any Restricted Use Logo and OpenStack Word Mark:

A. OpenStack Compatibility Standards. For your product or service to be eligible to display a Restricted Use Logo or Word Mark, you will be required to demonstrate OpenStack-defined compatibility standards for your product or service. If you did not agree to the applicable OpenStack Trademark License Agreement, you may not use any OpenStack Marks to indicate that your product/service runs on or uses the OpenStack code.

B. No variations. The Restricted Use Logos and Word Mark may only be used as provided to you by the OpenStack Foundation in the approved versions shown below. You may not alter the Restricted Use Logos in any way, including the colors, size, and proportions. You may not animate, morph, or otherwise distort the appearance or impression of the Restricted Use Logos.

C. Prominence of use. The Restricted Use Logo may not dominate your website, and your company name and relevant product/service name trademarks must appear with greater prominence than the Restricted Use Logo and Word Mark.

D. No Damaging Use. The Restricted Use Logo may not be displayed on any website that disparages the OpenStack Foundation, the OpenStack project, or OpenStack technology; infringes any the OpenStack Foundation intellectual property; contains pornographic or scandalous material; or contains, in the opinion of the OpenStack Foundation, otherwise objectionable or illegal content.

E. Limited Use. You acknowledge and agree that all rights and interest in the Restricted Use Logos and Word Mark are owned exclusively by OpenStack Foundation and agree not to register or seek to register in any country any OpenStack Marks or any term comprised or consisting of in whole or in part the OpenStack Word Mark or any confusingly similar mark as trademarks, service marks, corporate names, trade names or domain names, Internet keywords, metatags, or trigger words to lead to a website or other Internet destination. You agree that you will not acquire any rights in the OpenStack Marks and that any goodwill generated by your use of the OpenStack Marks inures solely to the benefit of OpenStack Foundation. You also agree that "OpenStack" is not descriptive or generic and you agree not to challenge the OpenStack Foundation's rights in the OpenStack Marks, including but not limited to its trademark applications and registrations, on any grounds.

F. Attribution Statement. All uses of OpenStack Marks must identify the OpenStack Marks as being trademarks of the OpenStack Foundation with our standard trademark attribution statement. The following statement must be used in all materials using the OpenStack Marks, including but not limited to websites, publications, splash screens, screenshots or in documentation: "The OpenStack Word Mark and OpenStack Logo are either registered trademarks / service marks or trademarks / service marks of the OpenStack Foundation, in the United States and other countries and are used with the OpenStack Foundation's permission. We are not affiliated with, endorsed or sponsored by the OpenStack Foundation or the OpenStack community."

G. Quality Control. The OpenStack Foundation reserves the right to terminate or modify the permission to display the Restricted Use Logo or OpenStack Word Mark and may require you to modify or delete any use of the Restricted Use Logos or OpenStack Word Mark that does not comply with the applicable trademark license, the OpenStack Trademark Policy, or these Guidelines. You agree to make any such modifications in a timely fashion at the OpenStack Foundation's request. If we determine that your use of the OpenStack Marks does not truthfully identify the inclusion of the OpenStack technology or your use is otherwise unacceptable or detrimental to any of the OpenStack Marks, as judged by OpenStack Foundation, we will revoke the authorization. Upon revocation of the authorization you will immediately cease using the Restricted Use Logo and the OpenStack Word Mark.

H. Enforcement. The OpenStack Foundation reserves the right to take action against violators of these Guidelines and those otherwise infringing on its intellectual property rights or violating any other applicable law.
