Trademark Usage Guidelines for using Aerohive Trademarks

Guidelines Overview

The Trademark Usage Guidelines (“Guidelines”) are intended solely for Aerohive licensees, authorized resellers, developers, customers, and other parties wishing to use Aerohive’s name, logo, trademarks, service marks, trade names and other marks (“Marks”) in promotional, advertising, instructional, or reference materials, whether on their web sites, products, labels, or packaging.  All usage of Aerohive Marks are prohibited, unless expressly authorized.

If you are a licensee of Aerohive Marks and have been provided with special trademark usage guidelines with your license agreement, please follow those requirements.  If your license agreement does not provide usage guidelines or refer to this document, then follow these Guidelines.

Aerohive’s Marks are valuable assets. In following these Guidelines, you help us protect our valuable trademark rights and strengthen our corporate and brand identities.  By using an Aerohive Mark, in whole or in part, you are acknowledging that Aerohive is the sole owner of the Mark and promising that you will not interfere with Aerohive’s rights in the Mark, including challenging Aerohive’s use, registration of, or application to register such Mark, alone or in combination with other words, anywhere in the world, and that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute any Aerohive Mark.  The goodwill derived from using any part of an Aerohive Mark exclusively inures to the benefit of and belongs to Aerohive.  Except for the limited right to use as expressly permitted under these Guidelines, no other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise. If you have any questions regarding these Guidelines, please talk to your Aerohive representative.

Authorized Use of Aerohive Trademarks

Promotional Usage.  Only Aerohive and its authorized resellers and licensees may use the Aerohive Marks in advertising, promotional, and sales materials.  Such authorized parties may use the Aerohive Marks only as specified in their agreement with Aerohive and any associated Guidelines and such use must always be in conjunction with the appropriate terms that define the relationship authorized by their contract with Aerohive.  For example:  Authorized Resellers, Authorized Value Added Resellers, Authorized Manufacturer, and Authorized Value Added Distributors.

Standards of Usage.  The Marks are the intellectual property of Aerohive and therefore are considered our corporate assets.  To ensure the Marks are neither diluted nor infringed, your use of the Marks (and our permission) is conditioned on your adherence to the following rules:

  • Always use a Mark as an adjective;
  • A trademark attribution notice must be included in the credit section giving notice of Aerohive’s ownership of its trademark(s) in the following form: “__ [insert Mark] __ is a [registered] trademark of Aerohive Networks, Inc., in the United States and in other countries.”
  • Always use the proper trademark symbol in superscript or subscript. If superscripts and subscripts are not available or practical for use, use parentheses: (TM) or (R);
  • Do not hyphenate, misspell, abbreviate, pluralize, change the word sequence, or combine or break apart words of a Mark;
  • Do not use a Mark in a manner that can reasonably be construed to mean or imply either an authorization by, affiliation with or an endorsement by Aerohive, without our express written permission of the specific affiliation or endorsement;
  • Do not use a Mark in a way that suggests a false association with Aerohive;
  • Do not adapt, alter, or modify in any way any Mark;
  • Do not use the Marks in a manner that is likely to dilute, defame, disparage or harm the reputation of Aerohive, or our products, services, partners, vendors, customers, employees or affiliates;
  • Do not display the Mark on any site that disparages Aerohive or our products, services, partners, vendors, customers, employees or affiliates;
  • Do not use or imitate any slogans of Aerohive;
  • Do not use the Marks in a manner that is likely to infringe any Aerohive  intellectual property or other rights of a third party, or violate any state, federal, or international law; or
  • Do not use the Marks in a manner that is likely to offend or dilute, defame, disparage or harm the reputation of third parties.

We reserve the right to revise these Guidelines from time to time, without notice, and at any time to suspend or deny your further use of the Marks.  We also reserve the right to require you to resize, move, or remove the Marks for any reason whatsoever.

Please refer to the Aerohive Press Kit, which can be found at http://www.aerohive.com/company/press-kit for the correct Aerohive trademark symbols, as well as spellings of the trademarks.
