Usage Guidelines for the Intel® Trademark & Company Name
- Whenever the Intel® brand appears, the following footnote must also appear: "Intel is a trademark of Intel Corporation in the U.S. and/or other countries."
- Whenever the Intel® logo appears, the following footnote must also appear: "Intel and the Intel logo are trademarks of Intel Corporation in the U.S. and/or other countries."
Any noun that is an approved noun for any other trademark is approved for use (e.g. Intel® processors, Intel® products, Intel® services, etc.).
In addition, if "Intel" is used as first part of a term that represents an Intel product, service or program (like Intel® motherboard, Intel® architecture, Intel® Internet Provider Program, Intel® Online Services, etc.) the ® symbol is also used. When Intel functions as a company name in text, neither the registered trademark symbol, such as ® nor a noun need be used.
Intel is being used as a company name when Intel is used to refer specifically to the company as an entity (e.g., "Intel Corporation" or "Intel announced its quarterly earnings"), and not a product or service of the company.
Use the trademark symbol in the first appearance of the trademark in a headline, and/or the first prominent use and first appearance in the body of text. The appropriate use of trademark symbols with this trademark is as follows: Intel® processor.
Never hyphenate or abbreviate the Intel® trademark or trade name.
