The TrademarkClear.com website (together with any alternative means of accessing the Services, like third-party integrations or a mobile app, the "Site") provides access to the TrademarkClear.com information services ("Services"). For the purposes of this agreement, the Services includes access to proprietary databases, non-proprietary databases, to search graphs, charts, and analysis, to watch service tools, to document creation tools, to order placement and retrieval services, and to any additional tools, products or services that are or may in the future become available on the Site. TrademarkClear.com is owned and operated by TM TKO, LLC ("TM TKO"). All references to TrademarkClear.com include TM TKO.
A user ("You") is any individual, company, law practice or other entity accessing any Services, and "You" refers both to you individually and Your organization.
Use of any Services constitutes acceptance of this user agreement. If you do not accept any portion of the user agreement, exit the Site without using it, and delete your user account.
All information and analysis accessed via the Service is protected by copyright and/or database compilation protections. Content from third-party data providers is the intellectual property of the provider, unless expressly disclaimed by that provider. Information retrieved from the Service via the Site cannot be duplicated, reproduced, distributed, or otherwise disseminated without the express written permission of TrademarkClear.com, and cannot be resold or repackaged. Limited reproduction of a single search report or other analysis is allowable within your organization and, for legal practitioners or businesses, by your direct client or your client's agents. No reproduction rights are granted to you for the purpose of engaging in a trademark search, research, or watch notice business, or if you compete with a TrademarkClear.com Service in any way. TrademarkClear.com makes no claim of copyright ownership to any information in the public domain, although it claims copyright ownership in proprietary data and analysis derived from that public domain information.
TrademarkClear.com expressly prohibits the user from downloading substantial portions of any proprietary or non-proprietary databases provided on the Site. All robotic or otherwise automated modes of query generation and record retrieval, and any use of the Services via anonymous proxies, are expressly prohibited, as is any abusive behavior. You agree that any unauthorized access to the Services is a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
The Service provides information and statistical data and analysis meant to highlight marks that may pose significant registration risks. The Service is not and is not to be construed as a legal opinion as to whether a trademark may be registered or used. TrademarkClear.com is not a law firm and cannot and will not issue any legal opinions. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain necessary legal counsel on any information retrieved from the Service, if desired.
TrademarkClear.com has taken reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of information presented to the user. TrademarkClear.com, and other partners, licensors, or information providers with information available at the Site expressly disclaim all express or implied warranties as to the accuracy, non-infringement, comprehensiveness, currency, or suitability of purpose of any of the information retrieved. The accuracy of data retrieved from the USPTO or other national, supranational, or non-governmental trademark offices, and other types of data presented in a search report, is disclaimed.
For trademark searches performed by the Service, user understands that trademark searches are highly subjective and idiosyncratic, and that the Service's statistical analysis does not attempt to analyze all of the factors that an attorney would analyze in determining registrability, and does not analyze the factors it does analyze (mark similarity or goods/services similarity) in the same way a human lawyer or trademark examiner would do. The Service will not necessarily identify all relevant or representative risks. Moreover, the Service does not identify marks that could impact registrability but are beyond the scope of the Service's data and searching strategy. The Service does not attempt to identify "famous" marks under dilution law, or certain types of state trademark registrations or common-law trademark rights. Users are solely responsible for review, interpretation and use of the particular report order by the user and provided by TrademarkClear.com ("Report"), any for whatever additional legal research or advice that may be necessary. TrademarkClear.com expressly disclaims any express or implied warranties as to the accuracy, non-infringement, comprehensiveness, currency, or suitability of purpose of any Report. Any liability related to conduct of the search and preparation of a Report is limited to refund of the fees paid by the user for that Report or other action. A Report that you purchase is confidential and may not be furnished to others by TrademarkClear.com, except where TrademarkClear.com is required to do so by law. TrademarkClear.com will not view your paid Reports unless (a) asked to do so or (b) to investigate and resolve service errors, impairments, or outages. Free Reports may be saved at a capability URL (a unique, cryptographically-generated string of characters) and will be tagged to not be indexed by search engines, but are not confidential or private in any way and can be viewed by anyone who knows that URL. Paid Reports may also saved at capability URLs, but You may be permitted to further limit access to those Reports by requiring a password to access them. A Report should only be used for the purpose of determining the availability of the mark for which the research is provided, or for whatever related purpose the Report has been generated.
You agree to hold TrademarkClear.com harmless of any direct or indirect claims related to the Service or the Site, and to indemnify TrademarkClear.com against any claims made by a third party related to Your use or the third party's use of the Service or the Site.
