THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT (THE “LICENCE”) IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU (“YOU”) AND ONE NORTHEAST (“WE” OR “US”) PERMITTING YOU TO USE THE LOGOS.
BY CLICKING ON THE “ACCEPT” BUTTON BELOW YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS LICENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS LICENCE, WE ARE UNWILLING TO ALLOW YOU TO USE THE LOGOS AND YOU MUST NOT DOWNLOAD OR USE THEM.

1.  GRANT OF LICENCE

(a)  In return for you agreeing to use the Logos strictly in accordance with the terms of this Licence, we grant to you a licence allowing you to use the Logos in the UK.  The licence we grant to you is non-exclusive so others will also be permitted to use the Logos by us.  Our licence to you is also non-transferable which means that you may not transfer your rights to use the Logos to others or permit others to use the Logos.
(b)  You acknowledge that we are the owner of the Logos and all copyright and other intellectual property rights in the Logos. You agree that any goodwill or reputation which may result from your use of any of the Logos shall belong to and accrue to us.
(c)  You agree not to apply to register any of the Logos (or any name, logo or mark which could be confused with the Logos) as a trade mark in any country. You also agree not to apply to register any trade mark in any country which consists of or features the words “PASSIONATE ABOUT” or “PASSIONATE PEOPLE PASSIONATE PLACES”.

USE OF THE LOGOS

(a)  You agree to use the Logos in the form and manner stipulated by us in our brand guidelines (published from time to time). Our brand guidelines are available in our Tool Kit (you will need to register/log into the toolkit to view these) and describe how the Logos should be used. For example they set out in what colours, sizes and formats they may be reproduced and how they can be adapted.
(b)  You agree to comply with any reasonable requests or instructions we may make from time to time as to your use of the Logos and to make amendments and alterations to the way in which you use the Logos if we require you to do so.
(c)  You understand that we are making the Logos available for use for the purpose of promoting the North East of England (including businesses and other organisations which operate in the region). Accordingly you agree only to use the Logos to promote the North East of England and not any other geographic region.
(d)  Except as permitted under Clause 2(e) below in respect of the PASSIONATE ABOUT Logo, you agree not to amend, alter or modify the Logos in any way.
(e)  The PASSIONATE ABOUT Logo may be modified and adapted by you, but only by inserting a generic description of your products, services or area of business or activity after the word “about” and it must not be modified in any other way. You agree that you must not adapt the PASSIONATE ABOUT Logo by inserting any other trade mark, specific product or service names or business names after the word “about”. For example “Passionate about baking” is acceptable but “Passionate about Jones Bakers” would not be.  For more information please see http://www.northeastengland.co.uk/page/support/brand_centre/passionate_about_logos.cfm  which gives examples of ways in which the PASSIONATE ABOUT Logo may be used.
(f)  If you intend to use the Logos in any way which does not correspond to one of the examples on the above website and if you have any doubts about your proposed use of the Logos or wish to discuss your proposed use of the Logos with us then please contact us on 0191 229 6861 or e-mail northeastengland@onenorthest.co.uk.
(g)  You agree not to adapt the Logos or use the Logos in conjunction with the name “One NorthEast” and/or any words or in any context which may:

  • defame any person;
  • be obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory;
  • promote sexually explicit material;
  • promote violence;
  • promote any political view or opinion 
  • promote a matter of public debate or controversy;
  • promote any religious view or opinion;
  • promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; or
  • promote any illegal activity.
(h)  You must not use the Logos in a way that:

  • infringes any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person;
  • is likely to deceive any person;
  • is made in breach of any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence;
  • is threatening, abusive or invades another’s privacy, or causes annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety;
  • is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
  • gives the impression that products or services emanate from us
  • implies that we endorse the product or service;
  • advocates, promotes or assists any unlawful act; or
  • is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.
(i)  You shall not use the Logos in any way which would tend to allow them to become generic, lose their distinctiveness, become liable to mislead the public, or to be materially detrimental to or inconsistent with the good name, goodwill, reputation and image of the Logos or of One NorthEast.
(g)  As advised in clause 2(f) of this Licence, if you have any doubts about your proposed use of the Logos or wish to discuss your proposed use of the Logos with us then please contact us on 0191 229 6861 or e-mail northeastengland@onenorthest.co.uk.

3.  SUSPENSION

(a)  We will determine, in our reasonable discretion, whether there has been a breach of this Licence through your use of the Logos. If we consider that a breach has occurred, we may take any action as we reasonably deem appropriate.
(b) If you do not comply with the requirements of clause 2 this shall constitute a material breach of this Licence and may result in us taking all or any of the following actions without further notice being given to you:
  •  immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use the Logos;
  • formal termination of this Licence in accordance with clause 5;
  • issue of a warning to you;
  • legal action against you;
  • disclosure of such information to law enforcement authorities or other third parties with legitimate interests as we reasonably feel is necessary.
(c)  The responses described in this Licence are not limited, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.

4.  INFRINGEMENT

(a)  We give no warranty and make no representation that your use of any of the Logos does not or will not infringe the rights of others in the UK or elsewhere in the world.
(b)  You acknowledge and agree that the use of the Logos in a particular context, in relation to particular goods or services, or with the addition of particular words may infringe the registered or unregistered trade mark rights of third parties. You agree that you shall be solely responsible for carrying out appropriate checks and searches to establish whether that is the case.
(c)  In no event will we have any responsibility or liability to you in respect of any claim that your use of any of the Logos infringes the registered or unregistered trade mark rights of any third party.
(d)  You acknowledge that the Logos are being made available to you on a royalty free basis and accordingly the limitation and exclusion of liability set out in this clause 4 are reasonable in the circumstances.

5.  TERMINATION

(a)  Either party may give not less than 30 days’ notice in writing to the other to terminate this Licence for any reason.
(b)  We may terminate this Licence immediately if you challenge the validity of our rights in any of the Logos.
(c)  Either party may terminate this Licence immediately if the other party commits any breach of this Licence and the other party fails to remedy the breach within 14 days of receipt of a notice specifying the breach and requiring that it be remedied.

6.  EFFECT OF TERMINATION

(a)  When this Licence is terminated your right to use the Logos shall end immediately. You will immediately stop using the Logos and you shall not manufacture, sell or offer any products or services of any type or description under, or by reference to, the Logos or any confusingly similar mark.
(b)  After termination you shall if so requested by us execute an assignment in favour of us (or such other person as we may direct) of any and all goodwill in the Logos which may have accrued to you as a consequence of your use of any of the Logos.
(c)  You will be entirely responsible for all costs incurred by you in ceasing  use of the Logos  and you acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability to you in that respect.

7.  CHANGES TO THE LICENCE

(a)  We may revise this Licence on reasonable notice by amending it on the North East England website. You are expected to check this Licence from time to time to take notice of any changes we make.
(b)  Except as set out in clause 7(a), no variation of this Licence shall be effective unless it is in writing, is dated and signed by a duly authorised representative of each party.

8.  RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES

No term of this Licence shall be enforceable under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by a third party, but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from under that Act.

9.  RELATIONSHIP

Nothing in this Licence shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute, a partnership between the parties nor, except as expressly provided, shall it constitute, or be deemed to constitute, any party as the agent of any other party for any purpose.

10.  LAW AND JURISDICTION

This licence shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law and each of the parties irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
