Use of PTAC Logo in Presentations
PTAC permits presenters at PTAC sponsored workshops, Technology Information Sessions, forums and conferences to use the PTAC logo in a slide that describes the topic and the event; this can be done in combination with the presenter’s logo on the same slide. In no way can the use of the PTAC logo indicate that PTAC endorses the presenter or its technology. No other use of the PTAC logo in presentations is permitted.
Use of PTAC Logo on Web Sites
PTAC permits the display of its logo on web sites of third parties so long as the logo appears in a section for resources (or equivalent) and clicking on the logo or a “button” adjacent to the logo causes the web site visitor to link directly to the PTAC web site. In no way can the use of the PTAC logo indicate that PTAC endorses the web site, the business or the technology of the owner of the web site. No other use of the PTAC logo on web sites is permitted by this policy. “Framing” is specifically prohibited.
