Trademark Usage Guidelines
Trademark Usage Guidelines
Quotient Technology Inc. (“Quotient”) has posted these Trademark Usage Guidelines (“Guidelines”) to assist you in properly using trademarks, service marks, and logos (“Marks” or “our Marks”) owned by Quotient and its subsidiaries. The strength of our Marks depends upon their consistent and appropriate use. Usage outside these Guidelines may dilute our Marks and make them more difficult to protect. We reserve the right to change these Guidelines at anytime and solely at our discretion.
Need for a License
Except as identified in these Guidelines, you may not use, reproduce, copy, or redistribute the Marks without a written license (permission) from Quotient. These Guidelines are for those entities and individuals who have obtained permission to use one or more of the Marks in promotional, instructional, or reference materials, or on products and services that are subject to an agreement with Quotient. The terms of an express written agreement with Quotient together with these Guidelines make up your rights and obligations regarding use of our Marks.
Our Marks consist at least of the following Marks, which are subject to change without notice: AUDIENCE XTEND; BRANDCASTER; BRICKS; CARDLINK IQ; CATALOG SPREE; BRICKS DUET; CI MOTIVATE designs & logo; COUPONBUG; COUPONFIT; COUPONS.COM Color Block & Design; COUPONCHAD.COM; COUPONSUZY.COM; COUPONS FOR CHANGE; DEFINITIVEDEALS.COM; DIGITAL FSI; GROCERY IQ and design; KITCHME; MORE FOR TODAY; NEXUS IQ; PRINTID; QUOTIENT; QUOTIENT logo; RECEIPT IQ; SHOPMIUM, THERE’S A BETTER WAY TO SAVE; VERI-FI and design; YUB.

Proper Use of Marks
To show availability through the Quotient brand service
Use words such as “available through” or “supported by” to show that your product is available through Quotient. You may not refer to your product as “Quotient content” or “Quotient services” or in any way imply that Quotient produced, endorsed, or supports the product, unless Quotient has expressly agreed in writing to such use.
Do not create composite marks
Our Marks must not appear to be part of any other mark (whether words or graphics). Quotient’s Marks may not be used as a design feature on your product, packaging, web page or promotional materials, without prior written approval. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, if a Mark is used in connection with your mark, the Quotient Mark must be used in smaller print after or underneath your mark, or in a similar manner that distinguishes your mark from Quotient’s Marks.
Always capitalize Quotient’s word Marks. Either capitalize them completely or use initial capitals.
Use a generic term after Quotient’s marks
Trademarks are adjectives and modify the generic name of the product. You should use a generic term after the first time the Mark is used in any materials and as often as possible thereafter.
Do not use our Mark in the plural or possessive form
Only when using Coupons.com Incorporated as the name of one of our subsidiaries, may you use the name in the possessive form.
The Coupons.com Color Block & Design and Quotient’s other logos should be taken from a Quotient product logo sheet or from a Quotient service screen shot following authorization from us. These logos may only appear with the words, logotype, graphic elements, and spacing which Quotient has expressly previously approved for use, and may not be modified.
Variations of Marks
You may not use a variation of our marks as it may confuse consumers as to the source (supplier) of the goods or services bearing the altered mark, and such use may infringe our trademark rights and be actionable under relevant laws.
Proper Notice and Attribution
An appropriate trademark symbol (i.e., ®, TM, sm.) should appear at least with the first and most prominent use of a word Mark in all materials. Generally the trademark symbol should appear to the right of the Mark. Quotient logos should always be used with the trademark symbols designated in the applicable product logo sheet or from a screen shot. When you use our Marks, please include the following brief statement attributing the Marks to Quotient: “Quotient, Quotient logo, Coupons.com, the Coupons.com Color Block & Design or any other Quotient product or service name are trademarks of Quotient Technology Inc. and/or its subsidiaries, in the United States and/or other countries.”
Review by Quotient
We reserve the right to review all uses of our Marks by others and to conduct periodic spot checks of such use. Upon request from Quotient, you must provide a copy of any product, packaging, screenshot, or other materials bearing our Mark. You must correct any deficiencies in the use of a Quotient Mark and/or the quality of the product or service used in conjunction with the Mark upon notice from Quotient. Refusal to correct such deficiencies may result in revocation of the license to use the Mark.
We do not permit you to use any Quotient Mark in the following ways: as part of a non-Quotient product name; as part of your own trademark; to identify products or services that are not Quotient’s; in a manner likely to cause confusion between products and services of Quotient and those of another entity; in a manner that inaccurately implies that we sponsor or endorse or are otherwise affiliated with your own activities, products, or services; in a manner that disparages Quotient or its products or services; in connection with goods or services which, in our judgment, may diminish goodwill in a Quotient Mark, including, for example, uses which could be deemed to be obscene, pornographic, violent, or otherwise in poor taste; in connection with any unlawful activities or to encourage unlawful activities.
Requests for Permission
You may make limited fair use of our Marks in referring to our products and services, for example in a magazine article, without our permission, provided you follow standard trademark usage practice and provide proper attribution. All other uses require written permission. To request permission please send e-mail with the words trademark permission in the subject line to [email protected], and include the following information in the message: the particular Quotient Mark(s) you wish to use; where and how the Mark will be used; where, how, and when materials (including screenshots) bearing the Mark will be distributed and to what audience; how many copies (each email recipient should be considered one copy) will be produced and distributed (if relevant); what other non-Quotient materials and marks will be associated with our Mark; your name, title, company, address, e-mail address, and phone number. We will attempt to evaluate requests promptly. We reserve the right to refuse permission to use our Marks for any reason.
If you have questions regarding proper use of our Marks please contact your Quotient representative or e-mail us at [email protected].
