Guidelines for Altera Trademarks and Logos

You may refer to Altera & Intel products and services by their associated trademarks, so long as such references (a) are truthful, fair, and not misleading, and (b) comply with these Guidelines, which may be modified from time to time.

  1. The list of trademarks comes with specific usage guidelines, as well as the appropriate nouns to be used with each.
    • Trademarks must always be used as adjectives. The chart below provides nouns to use with various trademarks and usage of such trademarks.
    • The spelling and capitalization used for trademarks must confirm to the chart below. Do not abbreviate any trademarks.
  2. Use the appropriate trademark symbol and trademark acknowledgment of Altera and Intel's ownership of the marks and/or logos in question.
    • Properly designate (with ®, ™ or SM) all of Altera’s and Intel's trademarks at the most prominent use (usually a headline) and again on the first occurrence in copy.
    • Properly footnote and acknowledge trademark ownership, preferably identifying Altera and Intel marks as being owned by Intel Corporation, e.g., [Mark] is a trademark of Intel Corporation or its subsidiaries in the U.S. and/or other countries
    • The complete acknowledgment line for all our brands can be found at Acknowledgment line.
  3. Do not incorporate trademarks or logos into your own product names, service names, trademarks, logos, or company names, and do not adopt marks or logos that are confusingly similar to Intel's marks and logos
  4. Do not make unlicensed use of Altera’s or Intel's licensed logos, such as the Intel® Logo. Third-party use of logos requires a license or written permission from Intel. If you are interested in obtaining a license to use an Altera or Intel mark or logo, contact your marketing or sales representative, or your local sales office.
