  1. You may use OGC's best management practice word marks in a descriptive sense in any media to identify OGC's products provided that you do not:
    • Use the marks without the correct acknowledgement statement and symbology, please refer to Annex, at the first instance of usage;
    • Incorporate any such marks into a business, service or product name;
    • Connect your company, product or service name in any way to such marks;
    • Use the marks in any way that suggests a more general meaning (e.g. Use of "ITIL" to describe IT Service Management more generally is incorrect use. ITIL should only be used to describe OGC's proprietary form of IT service management);
    • Use the marks in a way that is derogatory (to be determined at OGC's sole discretion);
    • Change the marks in any way;
    • Use the marks as a hyperlink;
    • Use the marks in any way so as to suggest an association with OGC, its partners or its products and services;
    • Use the marks in the title or sub-title of any product in any media in a manner not consistent with honest commercial practices; and
    • Use the marks in any way so as to suggest any official endorsement by OGC.

  2. If you wish to use OGC's best management practice related marks in a product or service (other than covered by 1 above) then you will require a licence. The APM Group who are OGC's Official Accreditor administer this activity on behalf of OGC. Please contact the APM Group Service Desk for more information regarding how to apply. Further information relating to officially accredited products and services (including how to achieve accreditation) can be found at www.apmgroup.co.uk/Accreditation/Accreditation.asp.

  3. Other than in the circumstances set out in 1 and 2 above, OGC will only allow use of its best management practice related marks in circumstances where such usage would support its current business objectives. Therefore, any other use of OGC's best management practice related marks requires written permission from OGC and in the first instance you should write setting out the proposed usage to the OGC Service Desk.
