Guidelines for the use of
and the related marks and slogan/motto:
Lock Out Violence Everyday Campaign name, its images, and slogan/motto: "Not in my school, Not in my home, Not in my community" are registered in the United States as service marks and/or trademarks. The purpose of a trademark or service mark is to identify all goods bearing that mark as originating from the same source -- in this case, Keys To Safer Schools.com on behalf of the L.O.V.E. Campaign -- and to distinguish those goods or services from the goods or services of others.
Another primary purpose of trade- or service marks is to identify the source of products or services, so that the public can assess the quality of those products or services by the mark. Protection of the above trade, or service marks requires that Keys To Safer Schools.com develop and maintain standards controlling the nature and quality of such products and services. If the public cannot recognize any standard of quality attached to the L.O.V.E. Campaign's products and services, and if they are not applied universally, the service marks and trademarks become meaningless.
Keys To Safer Schools.com has developed these guidelines and has posted these general minimum guidelines for permissible use of the above trade or service marks. We have made these guidelines both practical and fair. They are subject to modification based on experience. Following these guidelines, however, does not guarantee approval.
In its role as coordinator/guardian of the Lock Out Violence Everyday Campaign, Keys To Safer Schools.com is vested with legal responsibility for protecting those above trade or service marks. We are extremely fortunate to have the assistance of diligent educators, communities, law enforcement and mental health practitioners both in educating the public about use of these marks and in spotting, reporting, and promptly correcting misuses or unauthorized uses.
These guidelines do not, except where specified, give presumptive approval for the use of the above name, images, and slogan/motto. Approval can be obtained only through application to Keys To Safer Schools.com and the organization's written approval.
All approved use is time limited and subject to periodic review and/or renewal requirements. It is subject to revocation for misuse, misrepresentation, or failure to comply with approval conditions of these guidelines, among other reasons.
