Use of our Trademark materials

In general

Please don't use our name, logos or screenshots ('brand materials') in ways that may be confusing, misleading or suggest our sponsorship, endorsement or affiliation.

And please don't edit or change the HAT (HATDeX, and their affiliates) logo - we like it the way it is!

You can use our brand materials for educational and instructional purposes, but please remember that their use shouldn't be confusing or misleading, or suggest our sponsorship. We generally don't allow use of our logos or screenshots on book covers, for example.
