The following are the 2012 BBB Awards for Excellence Logo usage guidelines. Please adhere to these guidelnes as you use the logo as a marketing tool in newspapers, periodicals, direct mail, billboards, annual reports, posters, flyers, television, and radio spots. We recommend that, because of ongoing design and guideline changes (see below), you NOT use the Logo on any permanent or semi-permanent item or fixture such as company vehicles, signage or buildings. If you do so, we recommend using a magnetic sign or some other removable material.
As a condition of accepting this award, you agree to abide by the guidelines set forth in this correspondence, as well as all future versions of the guidelines, as may be amended from time to time at the sole discretion of the Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan Houston, Inc. (“Houston BBB”) and the Better Business Bureau Educational Foundation. Each year, no later than seven (7) days after the Awards for Excellence event, the new guidelines will be posted on the BBB’s website (http://houston.bbb.org). By accepting this award, you agree to review, within thirty (30) days of each future Awards for Excellence event, the guidelines posted on the BBB’s website and agree to comply with the then-posted guidelines within forty-five (45) days of the date of the Awards for Excellence event for that year. If you do not agree with the foregoing, then please return your Award, immediately cease all mention that you won the Award, and immediately cease all use of the Logo.
Please note that there are NEW guidelines for the use of the Awards for Excellence logo. We require that you abide by the following guidelines:
1) Anytime you advertise or otherwise state in writing that you won the award, you must indicate the year (2012) the award was received. For each instance where you use the Logo, you must indicate adjacent to the Logo the year you won the award. If you have won the award in multiple years, you may indicate that you have done so, but must indicate the years you won.
2) You can only advertise the receipt of this award in our 18 county BBB service area. The only exception is on your company website.
3) You are not allowed to say that you are the “best” in customer service, ethics, or any category of business.
4) You are not allowed to use the word “endorse.” You CAN use the word “congratulations.”
5) You must indicate on the award if the corporate office received the award or if it was the franchisee. The award only applies to the entity and name that was on the application and not to any associated companies.
6) You can no longer use the Logo with the wreath/branches even when you indicate the year. It is not an approved Logo. You can only use the Logo in the enclosed materials in relation to your winning this award.
7) You can use the Logo ONLY as long as you maintain accredited status with the Houston BBB. Once you no longer have accredited status with the Houston BBB, you must immediately cease all use of the Logo including but not limited to, removal from your website, advertisements, commercials, billboards, signage, and vehicles. Your membership or accreditation with another BBB branch does not entitle you to use the Logo.
