Application

These guidelines are for Endomag authorised Licensees, distributors, healthcare professionals, customers, and other parties wishing to use Endomag trademarks in promotional, advertising, instructional, or reference materials, or on their websites. Use of Endomag trademarks may be prohibited, unless expressly authorised.

 If you are a licensee of an Endomag trademark or logo and have been provided with special trademark usage guidelines with your license agreement, please follow those guidelines. If your license agreement does not provide usage guidelines, then follow these guidelines. If you are an Endomag Authorised Distributor, you may be subject to additional restrictions.

Endomag trademarks, trade names, and trade dress 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 Endomag trademark, in whole or in part, you are acknowledging that Endomag is the sole owner of the trademark and promising that you will not interfere with Endomag rights in the trademark, including challenging Endomag use, registration of, or application to register such trademark, alone or in combination with other words, anywhere in the world, and that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute any Endomag trademark. The goodwill derived from using any part of an Endomag trademark exclusively inures to the benefit of and belongs to Endomag. 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 Endomag representative.

Rules for Proper Use of Endomag Trademarks

  1. Trademarks are adjectives used to modify nouns; the noun is the generic name of a product or service.
  2. As adjectives, trademarks may not be used in the plural or possessive form.
    Correct: We have two Sentimag systems available for surgeons.
    Not Correct: We have two Sentimags available for surgeons.
  3. An appropriate generic term must appear after the trademark the first time it appears in a printed piece, and as often as is reasonable after that. For a list of suggested generic terms see the Endomag Trademark List.
  4. Always spell and capitalize Endomag trademarks exactly as they are shown in the Endomag Trademark List. Do not shorten or abbreviate Endomag product names. Do not make up names that contain Endomag trademarks.

Proper Trademark Notice and Attribution

  1. Distribution within the core region:
    a. List of core regions

    Delayed Node: UK only
    Magteam: UK only
    Magtrace: France, Germany, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, the United States and Australia.
    Save Our Nodes: United Kingdom and United States.
    Sentimag Smartprobe: N/A
    All other marks: European Union, United Kingdom, the United States and Australia Only.

    b. On Product documentation, or other product communications that will be distributed only in the above regions, use the appropriate trademark symbol (®) the first time the Endomag trademark appears in the text of the advertisement, brochure, or other material.

    c. Refer to the *Endomag Trademark List for the correct spelling of the trademark and generic term to use with the trademark. Generally, the symbol appears at the right shoulder of the trademark (except the Endomag Logo, where we do not use registered symbols or TM).

    d. Include an attribution of Endomag ownership of its trademarks within the credit notice section of your product, product documentation, or other product communication.

    Following are the correct formats:
    _________ and _______ are registered trademarks of Endomagnetics Limited.
    _________ and _______ are trademarks of Endomagnetics Limited.

  2. Distribution Outside the core region:
    a. Use the trademark symbol TM in superscript on products, product documentation, or other product communications that will be distributed outside the core region. 

    b. Use one of the following international credit notices:
    _________ is a trademark of Endomagnetics Limited., registered in the U.K. and other countries and regions.
    _________ is a trademark of Endomagnetics Limited.

  3. Distribution Inside and Outside the core region:
    a. Use the trademark symbol TM in superscript when the same products, product documentation, or other product communications must be distributed inside and outside the core region.

    We have to make this distinction due to the discrepancy with Smartprobe and Magtrace statuses.

Depictions of Endomag Products

  1. Endorsement or Sponsorship:
    Endomag does not support the use of its logos, company names, product names, or images of Endomag products by other parties in marketing, promotional or advertising materials as their use may create the perception that Endomag endorses or sponsors the product, service or promotion.

Endomag Trademark List

A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services. Also, as trade dress, it can be the appearance of a product or its packaging, including size, shape, colour, texture, graphics, and appearance (e.g., website).

The following is a non-exhaustive list of Endomag trademarks and service marks. The list includes a suggested generic term for each trademark. For all publications, include an appropriate generic term after the trademark the first time it appears. Thereafter, the generic term should appear frequently with the trademark. (These generic terms are only suggestions, and there may be other words that are equally appropriate.)

Trademarks are adjectives and should not be made into verbs or made plural or possessive.

Include the appropriate TM in superscript or ® symbol on first use and thereafter whenever appropriate.

Refer to the section “Proper Trademark Notice and Attribution” for guidelines on the appropriate use of ® or TM in superscript.

The absence of a product or service name or logo from this list does not constitute a waiver of Endomag trademark or other intellectual property rights concerning that name or logo.
