ChowMatch Marks Usage Agreement
This Marks Usage Agreement sets out the legal terms governing your ability to use the ChowMatch name, logo, and other registered or unregistered Hing Consulting trademarks and service marks owned by Hing Consulting to let your customers know that Hing Consulting provides services for your business. A list of the ChowMatch Marks available for use can be found on our Logos and Resources page.
You may not use any ChowMatch Marks without having agreed to abide by all of the terms and conditions in this Agreement, and unless you do so in accordance with this Agreement.
1. Permission to Use ChowMatch Marks
ChowMatch Marks are important assets of Hing Consulting’s business and are protected by US and international laws. You are licensed to use the ChowMatch Marks as described in this Agreement on a non-exclusive, non-transferable basis on websites or applications that utilize the Services. However, your use is subject to the terms set out in this Agreement, and we may terminate your license via (i) our absolute ability to supervise, monitor, and revoke your license at any time and at our discretion, or (ii) your non-use or cancellation of the Services. Upon termination of the license, you agree to promptly remove any ChowMatch Marks from any websites or applications, or other material within a reasonable time.
2. Proper Use of ChowMatch Marks
Proper Use: You may only use the ChowMatch Marks on the portion of your website or application that directly relates to the Services. All ChowMatch logos or “Powered by ChowMatch” Marks should directly link to our homepage at www.chowmatch.com. Where only the ChowMatch name is used, as opposed to the “Powered by ChowMatch” or ChowMatch logos, we ask that you provide proper trademark attribution crediting ownership of the ChowMatch Marks to us, such as:
The ChowMatch name and logos are trademarks or service marks of Hing Consulting, LLC.
Brand Guidelines: We may also provide you with style or usage guidelines describing such things as size, color, or relative placement of ChowMatch Marks. You may only use the ChowMatch Marks consistent with those guidelines except where we expressly agree otherwise with you in writing. You will update your use of the ChowMatch Marks to conform to changes in the guidelines within a reasonable time after we provide you notice of the change.
Attribution: The TM or SM Symbol should be prominently displayed in conjunction with any ChowMatch Mark being used, unless otherwise directed by us to use the ® symbol.
3. Impermissible Uses of ChowMatch Marks
You may not display, copy, modify, transmit or otherwise use the ChowMatch Marks except as described in this Agreement, the guidelines, or otherwise agreed in writing by Hing Consulting. You may not use the ChowMatch Marks to show Hing Consulting or the Services in any disparaging or derogatory light, or in any way that may be damaging to our brand or to our interests in the ChowMatch Marks.
You may not use the ChowMatch Marks to imply endorsement by Hing Consulting of your products or services, or in a manner that causes customer confusion. You may not misrepresent your relationship with Hing Consulting, or use the ChowMatch Marks in any manner that is misleading. In addition to any other right that we may have to enforce the terms of this Agreement, you must promptly comply with any request that we make for you to cease a use of the ChowMatch Marks that we determine is non-compliant with this agreement.
In addition to protecting the ChowMatch Marks, it is important to us that you maintain an independent brand. Even where use of ChowMatch Marks is permitted, we suggest that you prominently use your own marks in a manner that makes your brand or any other descriptor of your goods/services clearly distinguishable from that of Hing Consulting’s. For example, “Powered by ChowMatch” or “ChowMatch Services by Hing Consulting” are acceptable; but “Our ChowMatch App” and similar text are unacceptable and cause confusion of the ownership of the ChowMatch Marks. You may not use the ChowMatch Marks or any confusingly similar name or trademark with your product, service, company, or domain name. For instance, you may not use domains like “getChowMatch.com.”
