Factual’s innovation is embodied in its Intellectual Property, including Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights.
At Factual, we believe that our legal name, our trade names, our brand, our trademarks and our services marks represent and convey our good name and the goodwill of our company. This section shows and explains the usage of these names and elements.
A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services. Also, as trade dress, it can be the appearance of a product or its packaging, including size, shape, color, texture, graphics, and appearance (e.g, website).
The following is a non-exhaustive list of Factual’s trademarks and service marks.
When using the marks in publications that will be distributed only in the United States, include the appropriate ™, ℠, or ® symbol on first use. For publications that will be distributed outside the United States, do not include trademark symbols. Instead use the appropriate trademark attribution notice, for example: Geopulse is a trademark of Factual Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.
The list also includes a suggested generic term for each trademark. For all publications, include an appropriate generic term after the trademark the first time it appears. Thereafter, the generic term should appear frequently with the trademark. (These generic terms are only suggestions, and there may be other words that are equally appropriate.)
Trademarks are adjectives, and should not be made into verbs or made plural or possessive.

The absence of a product or service name or logo from this list does not constitute a waiver of Factual’s trademark or other intellectual property rights concerning that name or logo.
