Trademark Information and Restrictions
The Quicken® brand is a valuable brand asset, and is legally protected in the United States and various jurisdictions around the world. This site provides general guidelines regarding the proper, permitted and prohibited use of Intuit's trademarks. This site does not constitute a license, legal opinion, or legal advice, and is subject to change without notice. Marks not owned by Quicken Inc. or its licensors are the property of their respective holders.
Reservation of Rights
Quicken Inc., including its parent and subsidiaries ("Quicken") and licensors, reserves all rights with respect to Quicken trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, trade dress and other indicia (the "Quicken Marks"). Quicken does not routinely accept or review specific requests for guidance on the use of Quicken Marks. Any unauthorized use of any Quicken Mark, or any use of a mark that is confusingly similar to, or likely to cause confusion with, an Quicken Mark, would constitute infringement of Quicken’s or its licensors’ exclusive trademark rights. This document does NOT constitute any form of license to use any Quicken Mark. No Quicken employee is authorized to provide guidance on the use of Quicken Marks, nor to give permission to use any Quicken Mark, except by formal written license agreement published by Quicken (e.g., through one of its membership programs) or signed by an authorized director or vice president. Any promise, agreement, guidance or other representation by any Quicken employee (other than by a formal license as described herein) is invalid and cannot be relied upon. If you have questions about the laws surrounding the use of the Quicken Marks, or any other parties' marks, you should consult a qualified attorney. In certain instances, third parties are provided limited licenses to use specific Quicken Marks in the context of formal membership programs or specific software distribution programs. If you are a member in good standing of one of Quicken’s membership programs, or if you are a licensed distributor of Quicken’s software under various specific reseller or affiliate sales programs conducted by Quicken, please see your program's website, membership materials or distribution agreement(s) for terms and conditions related to any use of Quicken Marks.
Referential Use Only
You may make purely referential use of Quicken Marks as described in this section, but you should consult your own legal counsel on what does or does not constitute proper referential or nominative fair use of another company's marks, and what may constitute an unauthorized or infringing use. When referencing Quicken Marks, use of the Quicken corporate logo, product logos or box designs is NOT allowed without a written license from Quicken. Referential uses of Quicken Marks must only be made in plain text.
Plain-text use of Quicken Marks in commercial contexts may only be made for purposes like describing basic file format or data integration compatibility (in the case of software), ability to train others on the use of Quicken products (in the case of such services) or true, factual statements as to the nature of any relationship with Intuit, where one exists. Any use of Quicken Marks or of statements that imply endorsement, affiliation, certification or other relationship - where none exists - are strictly prohibited. There may be situations where it would be appropriate for you to state in your marketing materials, or on packaging for your own offerings, that your product or service is "for use with" or is "designed to work with" or "compatible with" a Quicken product. Please consult a qualified attorney if you have questions about proper nominative fair use of Quicken Marks. Members in good standing of Quicken licensing or membership programs are bound by specific terms and conditions governing proper referential use of Quicken Marks. Please review your program terms and conditions for details.
Use of Quicken Marks within your companies' product names, service names, company/trade names, DBA's, domain names or other indicia is strictly prohibited.
Trademark Symbols and Legends
Referential use of Quicken Marks should include the proper trademark symbol(s). Registered trademarks and Registered service marks bear the "®" symbol, whereas unregistered trademarks bear a "™" symbol, and unregistered service marks bear an "SM" symbol. A current list of the proper symbol placement for some of most-frequently referenced Quicken Marks can be found below.
Where possible, Quicken requests that those who make reference to Quicken’s products with their associated marks also provide a short ownership attribution statement somewhere within those materials.
Any attribution should be worded generally as shown in the following example:
"Quicken and the Quicken logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Intuit Inc., in the United States and other countries."
Proper Form — Usage as Adjectives
Trademarks are adjectives, and should generally be used in connection with the generic nouns they modify.
For instance, the word "software," or similar term (i.e., "financial software"), should immediately follow the referential use of the Mark "Quicken" in at least the first or most prominent instance where the Quicken Mark is displayed. The generic noun — which the Quicken Mark modifies — may be omitted in successive, multiple mentions of the Quicken Mark in a single section or page of text.
Since Quicken Marks are adjectives, they should not be used as nouns or verbs. For example:
CORRECT: Quicken software's user interface is easy to navigate.
INCORRECT: Quicken's user interface is easy to navigate.
CORRECT: I use Quicken software to manage my personal finances.
INCORRECT: I use "Quicken" to manage my personal finances.
