Guidelines for Use of Verizon Media Brand Features

  1. General. All Verizon Media trademarks, logos, service marks, trade dress, slogans, copyrighted designs or other brand features (collectively "Verizon Media Brand Features") will be used only as explicitly licensed by Verizon Media, and only under the terms and conditions and for the purposes described in such License.

To the extent they may differ with the general terms below, the specific terms of the License govern all use of the Brand Features by the Licensee.

  2. Approval. All specific uses of any Verizon Media Brand Features must be approved in advance by Verizon Media Brand Marketing. You may request approval by submitting a request via our online form.  You must also include complete samples of each proposed use. Your request will be reviewed and responded to within ten (10) business days, but Verizon Media is under no obligation to respond. You may not use Brand Features unless and until Verizon Media has granted its specific approval and any and all conditions of such approval have been fulfilled by the Licensee.

  3. Appearance of Logos. The Licensee will ensure that the presentation of the Verizon Media Brand Features will be consistent with Verizon Media's own use of the Verizon Media Brand Features in comparable media. From time to time during the term of the License, Verizon Media may provide to Licensee written guidelines as to the size, typeface, colors, and other graphic characteristics of the Verizon Media Brand Features, which upon delivery to the Licensee shall be deemed to be incorporated into the License and into these Guidelines.

Verizon Media shall have complete discretion to evaluate Licensee's use and to decide whether that use violates any of the foregoing restrictions.

  6. Use for Verizon Media's Benefit.  Verizon Media reserves the right to change the appearance of the Verizon Media Brand Features at any time without notice.
