USE THE CORRECT SYMBOL
When referring to Giggle Med ™ trademarks and registered trademarks, always include the proper notation after the name and logo. (® for Registered Trademarks and ™ for Trademarks) Failure to do so dilutes our trademark protection. In text it is only necessary to annotate the first instance of the trademark in a given document or piece. After the first instance you may drop the ® or ™ after the word. When using logos, always include the ® or ™ in every instance. Logos may only be used under license from GiggleMed.com, LLC.

USE FULL, PROPER, TRADEMARKED BRAND NAMES
Always use the full, proper trademarked brand names in all communications. Never abbreviate a Giggle Med ™ brand to create an acronym.

DO NOT ALTER GIGGLE MED ™ BRANDS OR LOGOS
When using a Giggle Med brand, never vary the spelling, add or delete hyphens, make one word two, or use a possessive form of the Giggle Med brand. When using a Giggle Med logo, never modify the design, add or delete any elements or words, change any colors or proportions.

THE GIGGLE MED ™ LOGO

Therefore, Giggle Med's logo should be of equal size and prominence with an equal partner. If GiggleMed.com, LLC is the dominant partner, the Giggle Med logo should be larger than partner logos. If GiggleMed.com, LLC is one of several lesser partners in an initiative headed by a dominant partner, Giggle Med's logo should be at least of equal prominence and size with the lesser partners, but smaller than the dominant partner.

Footnotes should always be complete sentences, and ordinarily appear on the copyright page, on the last page of the material, or on packaging.

PRODUCT PACKAGING
Special attention should be devoted to the correct use of Giggle Med ™ brands and logos on product packaging. Any Giggle Med brand that is displayed on packaging should be attributed with the appropriate trademark symbol (refer to the Giggle Med Trademarks Chart) the first time it appears on each side of the package. Any Giggle Med logo that is displayed on packaging should be attributed with the appropriate trademark symbol each time it appears on the package.

Ordinarily, this footnote appears on the back of the packaging.

POWER POINT & OTHER PRESENTATIONS
Giggle Med ™ Brands and logos, should always be attributed with the proper symbol and footnoted on all presentations that are displayed to the public (sales, trade shows etc). If a presentation is used internally, Giggle Med brands and logos should be attributed but need not be footnoted.
