Rules for Proper Usage of Hytrans Trademarks
Proper usage of Hytrans Trademarks is important for their continued protection. Proper usage aids consumers who depend upon Hytrans goods and services and helps prevent Hytrans Trademarks from losing their distinctiveness and becoming generic. Licensees of Hytrans Trademarks may have different rules of usage set forth in their license agreement, in which case Licensees should follow those guidelines.
Set Hytrans Trademarks Apart From Surrounding Text. When a Hytrans Trademark is used in a non-stylized form, such as in the body text of an advertisement, it should be set apart and distinguished from the other words in the text. In order to do this, the Hytrans Trademark may be rendered in boldface type, italics, capital letters, underscored, or set in quotation marks.

- Use Hytrans Trademarks As Adjectives. Trademarks are adjectives and should be followed by the generic term they modify, such as "unit" or "product". Never use a trademark as a noun, a verb, or in the possessive form.

- Use The Proper Trademark Symbol. A Hytrans Trademark should appear with the proper trademark symbol, which can be found on the Hytrans Trademark List. In written materials, the appropriate symbol must be used with the first or most prominent appearance of the Hytrans Trademark in headlines and the first time the Hytrans Trademark appears in body text. This appropriate symbol also should be used on each subsequent page if the topic is different or if the pages can be separated and distributed independently. If the materials, product packaging, or web page includes a properly licensed Hytrans logo, which already includes the appropriate trademark symbol, it is not necessary to include a trademark symbol after the word "Hytrans" in the text in that material, product packaging, or web page.
- Use The Proper Trademark Attribution Statement. All marketing collateral, advertisements, product packaging, web pages, manuals, and studies that include Hytrans Trademarks also must include the proper trademark attribution statement crediting ownership of the Hytrans Trademarks to Hytrans B.V.. Typically, the attribution statement is displayed at the end of the material, in the footer of the document, or on the back of the package. The correct trademark attribution statement is:
Hytrans, the Hytrans Logo, the Checkmark Logo and [if applicable, you may add any other trademarks found on the Hytrans Trademark List that are referred to or displayed in the document] [is/are] trademark[s] or registered trademark[s] of Hytrans B.V. or its affiliates in the Netherlands. and other countries. Other names may be trademarks of their respective owners.

In materials referring to HFS®, HydroSub® and PowerSub®, but not displaying a Hytrans Logo the correct attribution statement is:
Hytrans, HFS, HydroSub and PowerSub are trademarks or registered trademarks of Hytrans B.V. or its affiliates in the Netherlands and other countries. Other names may be trademarks of their respective owners.
Usage Rules For Hytrans As A Trade Name
"Hytrans" functions not only as a trademark mark and service mark identifying goods and services offered by Hytrans B.V., but also as a trade name or company name referring to Hytrans B.V.. Trade names are nouns and, therefore, should not be followed by a generic descriptor and may be used in the possessive form. When used as a trade name, "Hytrans" should not be followed by a trademark symbol. Within documents, the first reference to the trade or company name should be "Hytrans B.V.". "Hytrans" can be used for subsequent references.
