Trademark Guidelines

You may refer to McAfee’s products and services by their associated McAfee trademarks and service marks, but not McAfee’s logos, so long as (a) such references are truthful, fair, and not misleading, and (b) you use only the minimum amount of the trademark as necessary to identify McAfee as the source of the product and service. When making such use of the McAfee trademarks, you must use the appropriate trademark symbol and acknowledgment of McAfee’s ownership of the trademark in question. Additionally, you are specifically prohibited from and MAY NOT:

  • Incorporate McAfee’s trademarks into your own product names, service names, trademarks, logos, or company names;
  • Adopt marks or logos that are confusingly similar to McAfee’s marks and logos;
  • Use any McAfee name, mark, or logo in connection with your goods or services in a manner that suggests McAfee is the source of, or otherwise approves of or is connected with, your goods or services, when no such express source, approval, or connection exists; or
  • Make use of McAfee’s logos without a license or written permission from McAfee.

If you are an express LICENSEE of McAfee trademark(s) or logo(s), you have entered into a marketing program agreement, business alliance agreement, or specific permission grant to use a McAfee trademark or logo. The agreement that you signed with McAfee will identify the license terms, including the trademarks available for use and guidelines for such use. If you are such a LICENSEE of a McAfee trademark or logo, your license agreement that you signed with McAfee may have special trademark and logo permissions or usage guidelines different than the guidelines set forth herein. If so, please follow the special permissions or guidelines provided to you pursuant to your written license agreement.

If you are a SUPPLIER of products or services to McAfee, and you have been given permission to use a McAfee trademark or logo, you may only display or use the McAfee trademark or logo in accordance with the guidelines set forth herein as supplemented or modified by your written agreement with McAfee. You may not use a McAfee trademark in a manner that implies endorsement or approval of your products or services by McAfee without specific written permission from McAfee. The goodwill derived from using any part of a McAfee trademark exclusively belongs to and inures to the benefit of McAfee.
