These Tebi Trademark Guidelines (the “Trademark Guidelines”) form an integral part of the Tebi Customer Agreement (the “Agreement”) between Tebi or its affiliates (“Tebi,” “we,” “us” or “our”) and you or the entity you represent (“you”). These Trademark Guidelines provide you a limited permission to use the Tebi Marks (as defined in Section 2 below), in connection with (as applicable): (a) your use of the Services (as defined in the Agreement), or in connection with software products designed to be used with the Services, or (b) as otherwise agreed with Tebi in writing, on the terms set forth herein and in the Agreement, until such time as we may terminate such permission, which we may do at any time, in our sole discretion, as set forth in Section 4 below. The Tebi Marks are some of our most valuable assets and these Trademark Guidelines are intended to preserve the value attached to the Tebi Marks.

For the purposes of these Trademark Guidelines, "Tebi Marks" means the following trademarks, service marks, service or trade names, logos, product names, or designations of Tebi and its affiliates: “Powered by Tebi Cloud” “Tebi GDS”, “Tebi Geographically Distributed Storage” and any other Tebi Marks and Services made available from time to time.

Provided that you are (a) a Tebi developer in good standing with a current and valid account for use of the Services or (b) otherwise authorized by Tebi in writing, and provided, further, that you comply at all times with the terms of both the Agreement and these Trademark Guidelines, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable permission, under our intellectual property rights in and to the Tebi Marks, and only to the limited extent of our intellectual property rights in and to the Tebi Marks, to use the Tebi Marks for the following limited purpose, and only for such limited purpose: you may utilize the Logo or the appropriate form(s) of the “for” or equivalent naming convention or URL naming convention, as set forth in Section 9 below, to: (i) identify Your Content (as defined in the Agreement) as using the Services; or (ii) to identify software tools or applications that you create and distribute that are intended for use in connection with the Services. Without limitation of any provision in the Agreement, you acknowledge that any use that you elect to make of the Tebi Marks, even if permitted hereunder, is at your sole risk and that we shall have no liability or responsibility in connection therewith. Your limited permission to use the Tebi Marks is a limited permission, and you may not use the Tebi Marks for any other purpose. You may not transfer, assign, or sublicense your limited permission to use the Tebi Marks to any other person or entity. Your use of the Tebi Marks shall comply with: (i) the most up-to-date versions of the Agreement and these Trademark Guidelines; and (ii) any other terms, conditions, or policies that we may issue from time to time to govern use of the Tebi Marks. Your limited permission to use the Tebi Marks hereunder shall automatically terminate, and you must immediately stop using the Tebi Marks if at any time: (i) the Agreement is terminated; (ii) Your Content no longer uses any of the Services, or your software product cannot be used with any of the Services, as applicable; or (iii) you cease to be a registered Tebi developer.

You understand and agree that, without prior notice to you and at our sole discretion: (i) we may modify these Trademark Guidelines at any time; (ii) we may modify or terminate your limited permission to use the Tebi Marks, at any time in our sole discretion, for any reason or for no reason at all; and (iii) we reserve the right to take any and all actions including, without limitation, legal proceedings, against any use of the Tebi Marks that does not comply with the terms of the Agreement or these Trademark Guidelines.

You will not display the Tebi Marks in any manner that implies that you are related to, affiliated with, sponsored, or endorsed by us, or in a manner that could reasonably be interpreted to suggest that Your Content, web site, product, or service, has been authored or edited by us, or represents our views or opinions.

You may only use the Tebi Marks in a manner designed to maintain the highest standard, quality and reputation that is associated with the Tebi Marks and you will not use the Tebi Marks to disparage us or our products or services.

Tebi Mark Differentiation. You may not display any Tebi Mark as the largest or most prominent trademark in any materials (including, without limitation, any web site or product literature) associated with Your Content, software tool or other software application. When using any Tebi Mark (other than the Logo, with respect to which the formatting requirements are set forth in Section 8 below, or in a URL), you must distinguish the Tebi Mark from the name of Your Content and/or other surrounding text by capitalizing the first letter of the Tebi Mark, capitalizing or italicizing the entire Tebi Mark, placing the Tebi Mark in quotes, or using a different style or color of font for the Tebi Mark.

No Modification. We will make the Logo image available to you from the co-marketing page in the Tebi Site located at https://tebi.io/legal/co-marketing/. You may not remove, distort, or modify any element of the Logo; provided however, you may transform the file format itself, for ease of use.

Except for the Logo (with respect to which the formatting requirements are set forth above), you may only use the Tebi Marks: (i) in a relational phrase using “for” or one of the limited number of equivalent naming conventions, as set forth below; or (ii) to the right of the top level domain name in a URL in the format set forth below.

Relational Phrases.

You may replace “Tebi GDS” in the examples above with any of the Tebi Marks, so long as your usage of the Tebi Marks is accurate.

You may not link the Tebi Marks to any web site other than the primary URL for the applicable Service. You may not frame or mirror any of our web site pages.

You may not display the Tebi Marks in any manner that is misleading, unfair, defamatory, infringing, libelous, disparaging, obscene or otherwise objectionable as determined by us in our sole discretion.

You may not imitate the trade dress or “look and feel” of any of our web sites or pages contained in any of our web sites, including without limitation, the branding, color combinations, fonts, graphic designs, product icons or other elements associated with us.

Appropriate Activities. You may not use the Tebi Marks in any manner that violates any United States, Cypriot or foreign, federal, state, provincial, municipal, local or other, law or regulation. Without limiting the foregoing, or any provision in the Agreement, you may not display any Tebi Mark on your site if your site contains or displays adult content or promotes illegal activities, gambling, or the sale of tobacco or alcohol to persons under twenty-one (21) years of age.

Except for the limited permission specified in Section 3 above, nothing in the Agreement or these Trademark Guidelines shall grant or be deemed to grant you any right, license, title, or interest in or to any Tebi Mark or any of our or our affiliates’ other trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, product names, service names, legends, other designations, or abbreviations of any of the foregoing. You acknowledge and agree that we and our affiliates retain any and all intellectual property and other proprietary rights in and to the Tebi Marks. All use by you of the Tebi Marks including any goodwill associated therewith, shall inure to the benefit of Tebi.

You agree that you will not, at any time, challenge or encourage, assist or otherwise induce third parties to challenge the Tebi Marks (except to the extent such restriction is prohibited by law) or our registration thereof, nor shall you attempt to register any trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, product names, service names, legends, domain names, other designations, or abbreviations of any of the foregoing, or other distinctive brand features that are confusingly similar in any way (including, but not limited to, sound, appearance and spelling) to the Tebi Marks.
