GRAPHISOFT trademarks and service marks ("GRAPHISOFT trademarks") protect GRAPHISOFT’s business and product identity. You may use GRAPHISOFT trademarks (but not logos or taglines) to identify GRAPHISOFT products, services, and programs provided that your use meets the following guidelines:
You may generally use GRAPHISOFT trademarks to refer to the associated GRAPHISOFT products or services. For instance, an authorized reseller can note in its advertisements that it is selling GRAPHISOFT products. Similarly, a GRAPHISOFT customer may issue a press release stating that it has implemented GRAPHISOFT software.
Unless you are licensed by GRAPHISOFT under a specific written agreement, do not use the GRAPHISOFT logo, ARCHICAD logo, or any other GRAPHISOFT logos, symbols, or icons on or in connection with products, packaging, manuals, advertisements, promotional items, websites or marketing materials (“Marketing Materials”) for any purpose.
Relationship of Products or Services
You may indicate the relationship of your products or services to GRAPHISOFT products or services by using accurate, descriptive tag lines such as "generated using ARCHICAD software," "for use with ARCHICAD software," and "designed using GRAPHISOFT tools" in connection with your product or service name. You may nor incorporate or include any GRAPHISOFT trademark in your company name, product or service name, or domain name. The names of your products or services may not be confusingly similar to any GRAPHISOFT trademarks.
When referencing any GRAPHISOFT trademark, mark it with a TM or ® as indicated by GRAPHISOFT. Use the TM or ® symbol with the most prominent appearance of the GRAPHISOFT trademark on any Marketing Materials, and the first use of the mark in text or body copy.
All Marketing Materials bearing GRAPHISOFT trademarks should include the following trademark attribution:
"GRAPHISOFT, ARCHICAD, BIMx, EcoDesigner BIMCloud are registered trademarks of GRAPHISOFT SE. Other names may be trademarks of their respective owners."
Your company name and/or logo, your product or service name, and your graphic identity should be significantly larger than any reference to a GRAPHISOFT trademark. GRAPHISOFT trademarks may not be the most prominent visual element on packaging, promotional items, web pages or other marketing materials. If your use includes references to a GRAPHISOFT product, the full name of the product must be referenced at the first and most prominent mention (e.g., “GRAPHISOFT® ARCHICAD® software”).
You may not imitate GRAPHISOFT trade dress, type style or logos. For instance, do not copy GRAPHISOFT packaging for use with your product or display your product name in the distinctive logotype associated with the GRAPHISOFT logo.
Do not use GRAPHISOFT trademarks or potentially confusing variations in your Internet domain name. This helps prevent Internet users from being confused as to whether you or GRAPHISOFT is the source of the Web site.
Sponsorship, Affiliation or Endorsement
You may not use GRAPHISOFT trademarks in any matter that directly or indirectly expresses or implies GRAPHISOFT sponsorship, affiliation, endorsement, certification or approval in relation to your product or service or in such a manner that it appears that GRAPHISOFT is legally associated with your company.
You may place a text link to a GRAPHISOFT website if the text link is not a prominent feature on the site and is not used in a way that could confuse or mislead customers. You may refer to the GRAPHISOFT company name or GRAPHISOFT product or service in a plain text font and format, provide such use complies with all of these trademark usage guidelines.
You may refer to GRAPHISOFT products or services provided that the information relates to GRAPHISOFT products or services and that you include a disclaimer that you are not affiliated with, nor has the information been authorized, endorsed or otherwise approved by, GRAPHISOFT SE.
GRAPHISOFT generally permits use of its marks in group names that include phrases such as "user group", "special interest group", or similar words that clarify the relationship between GRAPHISOFT and the group and do not create confusion about the source of products. This applies only to user groups that are not formally doing business as commercial entities. If you are administering a user group that includes a GRAPHISOFT trademark in its name, do not claim any trademark rights in the name or attempt to register the name or your logo with a trademark office, and do not register the name as a trade name or business name, or conduct any business under the name.
GRAPHISOFT permits use of its marks in single volume book titles (not magazines or periodicals) where such use is descriptive or referential. To avoid misleading the public as to GRAPHISOFT sponsorship, affiliation or endorsement, the GRAPHISOFT mark must not appear more prominently than the rest of the title, and do not use GRAPHISOFT logos on the cover. In addition, we request that you include a disclaimer of association with GRAPHISOFT on the copyright page.
Resellers, distributors, OEMS, and other parties who enter into written agreements with GRAPHISOFT may be subject to additional guidelines. All other requests require written permission.
