Brand Guidelines & Permissions

grow

GoMainSt’s trademarks, service marks, logos, trade dress, web design, and other brand features (“Brand Characteristics”) are protected by applicable trademark, copyright and other intellectual property laws. Parties interested in obtaining permission or license to use any of GoMainSt’s Brand Characteristics or other intellectual property should send details of their request to Legal@ GoMainSt.com. Each request will be evaluated on a case by case basis and permission or license granted where appropriate.

Although we’d like to accommodate all the requests we receive, we need to protect the integrity of our brand, and we have to turn down many requests because the usage requested implies that GoMainSt is affiliated with or endorsing another company, website, or product.

If you are interested in promoting GoMainSt on your website, we encourage you to consider membership in our GoMainSt Affiliation Program, where we provide links and banners that you can use to spread the word about GoMainSt and to earn money for yourself.  Generally, we do not provide our corporate logos for personal use other than through our Affiliate Program, and membership in our Affiliate Program does not allow you to use our Brand Characteristics in any way other than by displaying in an unaltered state the icons, banners, and graphics provided through that program.

We get frequent requests from people who are interested in incorporating the GoMainSt Brand Characteristics into clothing designs or other merchandise. Unfortunately, we cannot grant permission for these uses. If you would like to purchase GoMainSt branded merchandise, please visit our GoMainSt Gear page

We do not allow the use of our trademarks in advertising, including in Google AdWords, nor do we allow the use of our trademarks in domain names. If you are a member of the media and are requesting usage of a GoMainSt logo, please contact pr@gomainst.com and we will address your inquiry promptly.
