TRADEMARK USAGE GUIDELINES
SUNVOT’s trademarks, service marks, trade dress, and logos (“Trademarks”) represent intellectual property rights owned by SUNVOT and as such are valued assets of SUNVOT. These Trademarks, whether registered or unregistered, must be used in accordance with these Trademark Usage Guidelines (“Guidelines”).
Any use of a SUNVOT Trademark must comply with applicable laws and requires strict compliance with these Guidelines. While in some instances wordmarks can be used without a license to truthfully convey information about SUNVOT’s products or services or compatibility therewith as long as the use does not cause confusion as to source or affiliation, any other use of a SUNVOT Trademark requires an appropriate license agreement. SUNVOT’s logo marks can never be used by third parties without express authorization by SUNVOT. Requests for a trademark license may be submitted to email@example.com Upon approval, SUNVOT will provide appropriate logo files for your use. By using any SUNVOT Trademarks, you acknowledge that SUNVOT is the sole owner of the Trademarks and agree not to interfere with SUNVOT’s rights in the Trademarks, including challenging SUNVOT’s use, registration of, or application to register such Trademarks. You agree that you will not harm, misuse, or bring into disrepute any SUNVOT Trademarks and that the goodwill, if any, derived from your use of any SUNVOT Trademarks exclusively inures to the benefit of and belongs to SUNVOT. You may not use any SUNVOT Trademarks in metatags, search fields, hidden text, or any other form that has the purpose or effect of diverting or confusing consumers without SUNVOT’s prior written permission.

Use of “SUNVOT” as a Trademark vs. Trade name
“SUNVOT” is not only a trademark used to identify SUNVOT’s products and services; it also serves as SUNVOT’s company name. Therefore, the word “SUNVOT” is generally used in two (2) different ways: (i) as a trade name to identify NINGBO SUNVOT TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD. the company; or (ii) as a trademark to identify its various products. “SUNVOT” is used as a trade name when NINGBO SUNVOT TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD. the company is taking some action or referenced as having some attribute (e.g. “SUNVOT announced its earnings for this quarter”). When referenced as a trade name, there is no need to include a trademark symbol after “SUNVOT”. “SUNVOT” is used as a trademark when SUNVOT is an adjective used as a brand name for its products (e.g. “SUNVOT® Outdoor CPE devices are aimed at mobile and consumer applications”). When referenced as a trademark, include the proper trademark symbol after “SUNVOT”.
