Guidelines for Using AkkuFresh® Trademarks and Copyrights
These guidelines are for AkkuFresh® licensees, authorised resellers, developers, customers, and other parties wishing to use AkkuFresh®’s trademarks, service marks or images in promotional, advertising, instructional, or reference materials, or on their websites, products, labels, or packaging. Use of the AkkuFresh® Logo for commercial purposes without the prior written consent of our company may constitute trademark infringement and unfair competition in violation of federal and state laws. Use of AkkuFresh® trademarks may be prohibited unless expressly authorised.
If you are a licensee of an AkkuFresh® trademark or logo and have been provided with special trademark usage guidelines with your license agreement, please follow those guidelines. If your license agreement does not provide usage guidelines, then follow these guidelines. If you are an AkkuFresh® Authorized Reseller or member of an AkkuFresh® program, you may be subject to additional restrictions.
Kent Holdings Limited’s trademarks, service marks, trade names, and trade dress are valuable assets. In following these guidelines, you help us protect our valuable trademark rights and strengthen our corporate and brand identities. By using an AkkuFresh® trademark, in whole or in part, you are acknowledging that Kent Holdings Limited is the sole owner of the trademark and promising that you will not interfere with Kent Holdings Limited’s rights in the trademark, including challenging the company’s use, registration of, or application to register such trademark, alone or in combination with other words, anywhere in the world, and that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute any AkkuFresh® trademark. The goodwill derived from using any part of an AkkuFresh® trademark exclusively inures to the benefit of and belongs to Kent Holdings Limited. Except for the limited right to use as expressly permitted under these Guidelines, no other rights of any kind are granted hereunder, by implication or otherwise. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please talk to your AkkuFresh® importer, Distributor, representative or submit your query to Kent Holdings Limited’s Send Mail.
