Copyright and Trade Marks

To use AXELOS trade marks or logos within your product or service you will need to obtain a trade mark licence. However, you may use AXELOS word marks e.g. ITIL® in free text or in a descriptive manner as long as the following conditions are met:

  • Ensure the correct symbol and acknowledgement statement accompany the mark at the first instance of use. The correct acknowledgment statement must feature alongside the first use of a product word mark on the same page or in a logical position within that document. On any subsequent use of the product word mark within that document, neither the symbol nor the statement is required (see the table below for details of the correct symbol and acknowledgement statements).
  • Do not incorporate any AXELOS word marks into a business, service or product name.
  • Do not connect your company, product or service name in any way to AXELOS word marks.
  • Do not use the marks in any way that suggests a more general meaning (e.g. using "ITIL" to describe IT service management is incorrect; ITIL should only be used to describe AXELOS' proprietary form of IT service management).
  • Do not use the marks in a way that is derogatory (this will be determined at our sole discretion).
  • Do not change the marks in any way or use them to suggest an association with AXELOS, its partners, products or services or any endorsement thereof.
  • Do not use the marks in the title or sub-title of any product in any media in a manner not consistent with honest commercial practices.

AXELOS reserves the right to initiate legal action should these requirements are not met when our word marks are used.

In the case of websites, an AXELOS word mark can only be used as a hyperlink to other web pages containing further information about that specific product. The word mark can be used on these pages freely. The correct symbol must be shown alongside the first occurrence of any AXELOS word mark within each web page on which it appears. The acknowledgement statement may be shown either on each page or be referenced on an acknowledgements/copyright page, accessible via a link on each web page where the word mark appears.

Where you wish to incorporate an AXELOS word mark into the title or name of a product a trade mark licence must be obtained through the Trade Mark (and Copyright) Licensing Scheme from us at [email protected].

Examination Institutes and Accredited Training Organizations are granted a licence to reproduce trade mark and copyright material in their training and marketing materials as part of the accreditation process.

Individuals and organizations are also able to use trade mark and copyright material but must apply for a licence in order to do so. Please refer to our Intellectual Property page to find out more about the copyright and trade mark licences available or contact us at [email protected].
