Trademarks, Service Marks and Logo Usage Requirement
 

The GLOBE Program is pleased to grant permission to its partner organizations and participating schools to use GLOBE trademarks, service marks and the GLOBE logo in materials prepared and distributed in hard copy or electronic form as part of activities directly related to participation in the GLOBE Program. Use of the trademarks must be consistent with the terms outlined below.

The trademarks that may be used are:

  • The GLOBE® Program
  • GLOBE®
  • GLOBE® Stars
  • GLOBEMail®
  • The GLOBE logo:
    color logo
    black logo
    white trademark
    color with text logo
    black with text logo

Current GLOBE logos may be downloaded from the following page: http://www.globe.gov/support/media-resources-and-logos

Whenever the GLOBE trademarks, service marks and logo are used, they should be marked with the "®" symbol, as shown above, except when redundant or repetitive uses of the symbol might appear awkward or cumbersome. In such repetitive use, the symbol should be applied the first time the trademark is used.

The license for use of these trademarks and service marks includes use in raising funds or other resources to support participation in the GLOBE Program, such as producing and selling items like T-shirts, mugs, and mouse pads. The trademarks and service marks may not be used to raise funds or other resources for purposes other than the GLOBE Program.

The trademarks and service marks should be used under circumstances that represent good taste, and must not be used in any way that could be construed as endorsing any product, service, organization, or point of view not directly associated with participation in the GLOBE Program. The use of these trademarks and service marks may not be sub-licensed to any other organization or individual, and the trademarks may be used only while the partner or school is a participant in the GLOBE Program.

The GLOBE trademarks and service marks should not be incorporated in your trademarks, service marks, organization or company names, Internet addresses, domain names, or similar designations for use in education and program areas represented by the GLOBE marks. This license is granted by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). UCAR reserves the right to monitor use of the GLOBE trademarks service marks and logo, including inspecting goods or services on which the trademarks and service marks are used, and to withdraw its consent for use of these trademarks and service marks or change the guidance for their use at any time.

We encourage all GLOBE partners and schools to use these trademarks and service marks to show their pride in being part of this exciting, international environmental science and education program.
