OpenStack Foundation has created specific logo and word trademarks for licensees who: use formally released OpenStack technology in their products that meet certain requirements; use technology that is compatible with formally released OpenStack technology, in their products that meet certain requirements; or provide training programs concerning OpenStack technology that meet certain requirements.

Written permission, in the form of a license agreement, is required to use each of the logos below (each a "Restricted Use Logo," 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 offered if you meet the requirements specified below.

The following are some of the requirements that are automatically 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.

You acknowledge and agree that all rights and interest in the Restricted Use Logos and Word Mark are owned exclusively by the 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 Marks 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.
