Guidelines for Using Scout Brand Assets

A trademark is a recognizable sign, symbol, or expression that distinguishes products or services of one source from those of others. It can take various forms such as words, logos, colors, or sounds, and serves to build brand recognition and reputation.

When using our trademarks in publications or other materials that will be distributed only in the United States, include the appropriate ™ or ® symbol on first and/or most prominent use.

For materials that will be distributed outside the United States, do not include trademark symbols. Instead use the appropriate trademark attribution notice, for example: Scout and the Scout logo are trademarks of Scout Motors Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries and regions.

Do’s

Don’ts

Always use trademarks as adjectives, followed by a generic term, for example,“Scout® vehicles.”

Do not use trademarks in a manner that could cause confusion about the source of goods or services.

Always include the appropriate symbol (™ or ®) with our trademarks to denote their status.

Avoid altering the appearance of trademarks, including changes in color, font, or design.

Include trademark notices in prominent locations where trademarks are displayed, such as on websites, marketing materials, and product packaging.

Do not use trademarks in a possessive or plural form unless it is part of a proper name.

When using our trademarks, provide proper attribution to Scout Motors Inc.

Maintain consistent spacing and capitalization when displaying trademarks.
