IAC Trademark Policy

As a member, partner, or service provider (“You” or “Your“) of Innovation Asset Collective (“IAC“), you have IAC’s permission to use IAC’s trademarks as long as you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions and your use of the trademarks meets the guidelines set forth below. 

1. Permission to Use

IAC hereby grants You the limited, non-transferable, revocable permission to use the trademarks shown below (the “Trademarks”), without modification, and for the purposes and in the manner described herein:

2. Permitted Use

You may use any of the Trademarks in print or on a website in reference to IAC’s offerings, programs or services, IAC being your strategic partner, your membership at IAC, or IAC being a client of yours, subject to the guidelines set forth below and to the terms of this policy. All references to IAC must be honest and accurate. No other use of the Trademarks is permitted without the express written consent of IAC.

3. Guidelines

Your use of any of the Trademarks must meet the following guidelines:

3.1 Use the full-colour version of the Trademarks on a white background.

3.2 We reserve the right to prevent or suspend your access to the Website if you do not comply with any part of these Terms or any applicable law.

3.3 The amount of clear space around each Trademark should be equal to or greater than the height of the maple leaf in the Trademark.

3.4 For print, the Trademarks with words must have a minimum height of 11.43 mm; the Trademarks without words must have a minimum height of 8.89 mm. For a website, the Trademarks with words must have a minimum height of 60 pixel; the Trademarks without words must have a minimum height of 40 pixel 

3.5 Use each Trademark as a supporting element, in a context that clearly describes the role of IAC.

3.6 Do not use the Trademarks in a way that implies endorsement.

3.7 A superscript asterisk must immediately follow the use of each Trademark and a corresponding footnote must recite “Trademark of Innovation Asset Collective, used with permission by Innovation Asset Collective/Collectif d’actifs en innovation.  

4. Restriction

You must never use the Trademarks in a way that implies an endorsement or affiliation with IAC where such a relationship does not exist.

5. Non-Disparagement

You shall not depict the Trademarks in any manner or in any materials that would tend to denigrate, disparage, tarnish, present in a false light, or otherwise reflect negatively on the Trademarks, IAC or its funder (i.e., Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada), any of IAC’s members, any of IAC’s services, or the intellectual property industry or related industries in general.

6. Right to Revoke

IAC may revoke this permission to use at any time by written notice to You. Revocation will apply to all future use of the Trademarks but will not require you to delete the Trademarks from any tangible materials already in existence if such use is not in violation of the terms of this policy.

7. Automatic Revocation

Any use by you of the Trademarks that violates any of the terms of this policy will result in the automatic revocation of this permission to use without notice to You.

8. Acknowledgment of Ownership

You acknowledge that IAC owns all right, title, and interest in the Trademarks. 

9. Indemnification

You shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless IAC from and against any claims, judgments, damages, liabilities, settlements, losses, costs, and expenses, including legal fees and disbursements arising from or relating to any breach by You of the terms of this policy.
