These guidelines (Guidelines) set out the rules for using or referring to the trademarks owned by LIFX UK LTD, 153 Milton Keynes Business Centre, Foxhunter Drive, Linford Wood, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, MK14 6GD (“LIFX”).
These Guidelines are designed to protect us from a legal perspective, but also to ensure our customer support team isn't spending a bunch of time fielding inquiries for third party apps.
- Please only use the LIFX trademarks as permitted under these Guidelines.
- Please don't do anything that is likely to make customers think your work is ours.

- Everybody be cool.
Official sounding version...

These Guidelines apply to any party wishing to use or refer to LIFX trademarks. If you are a licensee of a LIFX trademark and have been provided with special trademark usage guidelines with your licence agreement, please follow those guidelines.

By using a LIFX trademark, you are acknowledging that LIFX is the sole owner of the trademark and promising that you will not interfere with LIFX's rights to the trademark, including challenging LIFX's use, registration of, or application to register such trademark, alone or in combination with any other words or symbols, anywhere in the world. The goodwill derived from using any part of a LIFX trademark ensures exclusively to the benefit of and belongs to LIFX.
You may use or refer to the LIFX word mark (but no part of the LIFX logo) in a referential phrase on packaging or promotional/advertising materials to describe that the third party product is compatible with the referenced LIFX product or technology, provided they comply with the following requirements:
- The LIFX word mark is used in a referential phrase such as "compatible with", "works with", etc.
- The trademark is used with the appropriate trademark symbol e.g. LIFX®
