The Mautic trademark – i.e. the word “Mautic”, whether or not in capitals – is owned and controlled by Acquia Inc., who has joined forces with Mautic to deliver the world’s only open digital experience marketing platform.
Although you are encouraged to use the Mautic trademarks (including accompanying official logos, which is itself a use of the Mautic trademark) for your own purposes, you must first obtain a license. You can either obtain this license automatically, or through a license grant procedure, as further explained below in this policy.
This policy therefore first explains whether you receive an automatic license, or whether you need to obtain a license through the license grant procedure. In addition, this policy explains which "rules of use" apply when you use the Mautic trademark (whether you obtained the license automatically, or through the license grant procedure).
The Mautic Community acts as a steward for the Mautic brand, with the trademark and logo rights being owned by Acquia.
Our goal is to grow the Mautic community by encouraging businesses of all sizes to bring creativity, innovation and contributions to the project. We’ve developed this policy in an effort to preserve the Mautic trademark and brand, as well as to provide guidance and resources to those who wish to use the Mautic name, logo or trademark in any capacity.
Mautic trademarks, service marks, and logos (collectively “Mautic Trademarks”) are particularly valuable because they represent the unrivaled commitment and standards of excellence associated with the Mautic brand. This policy is in response to the questions received from various persons and companies and aims to cover the most typical situations for use of the Mautic Trademarks. This page contains detailed information about how to properly refer to Mautic Trademarks.
This policy may not answer every question you may have about the use of Mautic Trademarks. If your specific use scenario is not addressed in this policy, or you have doubts as to whether or not a specific rule applies, you should contact Acquia Legal Department at [email protected]
All Mautic Trademarks are the property of Acquia Inc. and nothing contained on any website(s) and/or within any documents should be construed as granting any license or right to use any Mautic Trademark without the prior written permission of Acquia. By using any Mautic Trademark you acknowledge that Acquia Inc. is the sole owner of the trademark and you agree that you will not challenge Acquia’s use, registrations of, or application to register any trademark. The goodwill derived from the use of any Mautic Trademark shall be for the exclusive benefit of the Mautic brand.
Below are some examples of Mautic Trademarks and their associated designations. This list may be updated and is not to be considered exhaustive.

The following set of rules governs all use of the Mautic Trademarks, with the exception of any nominative fair use (outlined below), and regardless of whether you followed the license grant procedure or obtained an automatic license for such use.
Nominative fair use permits the use of another’s trademark to refer to the trademark owner’s actual goods and services associated with the mark.
You may identify a Mautic product or service in text or indicate your product or service is related to Mautic by using an appropriate phrase such as “for”, “for use with”, or “works with” so long as such usage does not create the impression of any affiliation with or endorsement by Mautic, and as long as your usage does not create the possibility of confusion as to the source of the product.
If your business has developed products and/or services that contribute to the installation, configuration, implementation and use of Mautic, we encourage you to promote it. We also encourage the inclusion of links to Mautic.org on such web pages or emails. The Mautic community becomes richer when the community contributes to the project in this way.
The Mautic name and approved logo may be included in content that describes the products and services that are offered by your business and when it resides on pages that clearly articulate them. To access authorized Mautic community branding resources, click here.
