To advertise programs or products not affiliated with HulaFit Ltd.
The HulaFit® Trademarks are important business assets of HulaFit Ltd and should be treated with a high level of care. People around the world, including us, rely on our Trademarks to identify our products and services and to distinguish them from those of our competitors.
If our Trademarks became “generic” in a particular area, they would cease to identify our Company as the exclusive source of our services, then anyone would be able to use our marks without concern of a trademark infringement claim, creating confusion in the marketplace. The HulaFit® brand name and related word and logo trademarks should only be used to indicate the source of our particular programs and related products and should not be used to refer to any other programs, products or services.
We respectfully request that you support our efforts to enforce the HulaFit® Trademarks and take steps to use them properly and avoid confusion or misuse. If you have any questions concerning the proper use of the HulaFit® Trademarks, contact us at [email protected].
