  2. Proper Form of Link: . All approved information links must include one of the following: the company names “AACE International” the letters “AACE,” the AACE URL, or the AACE logo. [NOTE: The use of "AACEI" or "AACEi" is never to be used as it is incorrect.]
  3. No Alteration or Misrepresentation. You will not use or alter any AACE logo or trademark in any manner to make it appear that AACE is endorsing, sponsoring or affiliated with you or your company, except as expressly permitted by AACE International.
  4. Proper Use of AACE Trade and Service Marks: You agree that all uses of AACE marks and copyrighted materials will conform in all respects to AACE’s Intellectual Property Use Guidelines.
  5. Protection of Marks. You are prohibited from using the AACE logo or names in a manner that is likely to cause confusion with, or dilute or damage the reputation or image of AACE, any of its affiliates, or any of their products. The AACE logo and/or names should not be displayed on your web site more prominently than your own marks or logos.
  6. Framing. You agree that you will not place AACE web pages in a "frame" within your own website, without specific permission from AACE.

AACE may at any time, in its sole discretion, without notice, with or without cause, immediately terminate its consent to use the AACE logo and/or names and to link to the AACE website. The consent granted to you hereunder shall terminate automatically if, at any time, you are in violation of this Linking Agreement.

This agreement cannot be altered or modified except by email notice to you and/or by AACE changing its web site policy and giving notice of that change to the linking party. AACE reserves the right to amend its policy at any time. Any continuation of the link after notice of the change will be deemed acceptance of the modification.
  14. No permission to use AACE’s Logo to link to AACE's web site may be assumed. Your registration information will be verified by AACE and permission acknowledged by e-mail.
  15. A grant to link only responds to a request to link and does not constitute an endorsement of the requestor's company name, domain name or email address.
