Guidelines for Using SAP Trademarks

You must carefully consider SAP's trademark usage guidelines when mentioning SAP offerings in your materials or in connection with your own products or product names. You must always make a clear and unambiguous distinction between your own solutions, products, and/or services and the SAP offerings mentioned.

SAP accepts no responsibility for any violation of legal regulations regarding competition or trademarks by partners. In addition to these guidelines, country-specific regulations may apply.

Proper Use of Trademarks

Unregistered or pending trademarks bear the ™ symbol. Registered trademarks carry the ® symbol. A selection of SAP trademarks, both registered and pending, as well as a selection of SAP offering names, are listed in this guide. Please use these names and their symbols according to the guidelines that follow.

The only use that does not require the symbols is a Web application or other onscreen presentation where the low resolution of the medium renders the symbol illegible. However, in such case please attribute SAP trademarks used in this fashion on the attribution page of the application or presentation in accordance with the "Trademark Attribution" section of these guidelines.

To ensure correct use of SAP trademarks, follow these guidelines:

  • Always refer to a trademark using the correct spelling with the correct capitalization. Do not alter the trademark in any way.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "sap® software" and "SAP Netweaver™ platform." It is correct to say "SAP® software" and "SAP NetWeaver™ platform." See the trademark list for correct spelling and capitalization.
  • Always use a trademark as a proper adjective, not a noun.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "You can use SAP to manage your enterprise." It is correct to say "You can use SAP® solutions to manage your enterprise."
  • Use a trademark as a proper adjective followed by a common noun descriptor.
    An example of a common-noun descriptor is "software." Examples of correct use are "SAP® software," "SAP® xApps™ composite applications," and "SAP NetWeaver™ platform." Always use an appropriate descriptor. See the trademark list for SAP trademarks and appropriate descriptors.
  • Include the appropriate symbol – ™ or ® – representing the trademark status.
    If repeated inclusion of the ™ or ® symbol is awkward or impractical, at a minimum you must include the symbol and the common-noun descriptor upon the first use of the trademark in the title (if the name appears in the title) and also in the text. Subsequent to this initial use, the symbol and descriptor need not appear with the name. For example: "The SAP NetWeaver™ platform is the open integration and application platform that enables change. SAP NetWeaver helps companies align IT with their business."
  • The registered trademark on "SAP" applies to all goods or services delivered by SAP – anything you can obtain from SAP.
    Therefore you say SAP® software, SAP® solution, SAP® application, SAP® offering, SAP® tool, SAP® solution maps, SAP® technology, SAP® services, and so on.
  • Do not use a trademark in possessive form.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "SAP®'s software" or "SAP®'s R/3® Enterprise software" or "SAP's NetWeaver™ platform." It is correct to "SAP® software" and "SAP® R/3® Enterprise software" and "SAP NetWeaver™ platform."
  • Do not use a trademark in plural form.
    For example, it is incorrect to say "The company had three SAP® R/3®s." It is correct to say "The company had three systems running SAP® R/3®."
  • When referring to the SAP corporate entity rather than the SAP brand, trademark rules do not apply.
    That is, you do not use the ® symbol in statements such as "SAP announced today," "SAP provides solutions to customers," and "the SAP development team." Similarly, you can use the possessive form "SAP's" when referring to the company, not to the brand. For example, you may say "SAP's vision" and "SAP's years of experience." Self-test: Ask yourself, "Am I referring to the corporation, or to an SAP-brand offering or service?" If you are referring to an SAP brand offering or service, use the ® symbol.
  • The entire name "SAP NetWeaver" is a trademark of SAP.
    Therefore you do not put the ® symbol after "SAP" in this name. Use the ® symbol after "SAP" in the first mention of SAP that requires the trademark, such as "SAP® solutions" or "SAP® xApps™ packaged composite applications."
  • Always use a descriptor after "SAP xApps."
    For most SAP offerings, you must use the common noun descriptor (such as "solution") upon first mention of the name in the document, but then may choose to omit it in subsequent mentions of the name in a document. An example of this is "The SAP NetWeaver™ platform solves your business integration challenge. SAP NetWeaver allows your enterprise to grow seamlessly." However, for SAP xApps composite applications, use a descriptor upon every mention of the name to protect the trademark. An example of correct usage is "SAP® xApps™ composite applications" (first use) and "SAP xApps composite applications" (subsequent uses). Always include the "SAP" brand. That is, always refer to "SAP xApps composite applications," never simply to "xApps composite applications."
  • Do not use the ® symbol in industry offering names, such as SAP for Automotive, unless there is no other opportunity to use the ® symbol after "SAP" within the written piece.
    Here is a correct example: "SAP offers a comprehensive set of solutions for oil and gas companies of all sizes operating in various business segments. SAP for Oil & Gas solutions address needs from wellhead to retail outlet and allows companies to be globally integrated while regionally focused. SAP® solutions help companies build strong relationship with supply chain partners, improve decision making, and enhance organizational flexibility." In the event that you have no opportunity to use the ® symbol after "SAP" unless it is in an industry portfolio name, do use the ® symbol. This may occur, for example, in a brief advertisement or sign. Here is a correct example: "Room 100: Conference on SAP® for Automotive."

 

Trademark Attribution

In any material that mentions any SAP trademark, you must include the correct attribution statement based on the following:

"<SAP TRADEMARKS> is/are the trademark(s) or registered trademark(s) of SAP SE in Germany and in several other countries."

In your attribution statement, replace the placeholder phrase <SAP TRADEMARKS> with the names of the SAP trademarks mentioned in your material. Place the statement either on the copyright page (which may be the case in a brochure) or at the end of a material if it has no copyright page (in an advertisement or a press release, for example).

Guidelines for Using SAP Trademarks

Additional Trademark Usage Information For Third Parties

You may mention the names of SAP offerings when describing their compatibility with your own programs or applications. But as an SAP partner or other third party, you may not include the name "SAP," a logo of SAP, a trademark of SAP, the name of an SAP offering or similar variations into your own product or service name, company name, domain name, or any of your logos.

When referring to product compatibility, you must make a clear distinction between your products or services and those of SAP. The name of your offering and the name of the SAP offering must be clearly distinguished from one another either visually or by the wording. You can accomplish this goal in a variety of ways in running text and in headlines, signs, or other materials. Also, when referring to your product's compatibility with an SAP offering, please mention your company name in addition to your product name.

When expressing compatibility, you must not allow your offering's name to appear to include an SAP trademark. For example, names such as "SAP® Extender," "SAP® ERP Mapper," "Indexer for SAP NetWeaver™," "NetWeaverExtension," and any name that encompasses a trademark of SAP or an offering name of SAP, including SAP Business One and SAP Business All-in-One, are strictly prohibited.

Do not state or imply that your product is produced or authorized by SAP. For example, do not represent your training programs as "authorized SAP training."

When you describe product compatibility, you may refer to an SAP offering name but never solely to compatibility with "SAP."

Incorrect example:
< Your company name> <your product name> for SAP

Correct example:
< Your company name> <your product name> for use with SAP® Business All-in-One

When referring to an SAP offering name, please use the complete, correct SAP offering name. Refer to the selection of SAP offering names within this guide or contact your SAP partner manager for information.

Incorrect example:
Our product runs with SAP®.

Correct example:
Our product runs with SAP® Business Suite.

Compatibility References within Running Text

In text sentences, you may use phrases such as the following to refer to your offering's compatibility with SAP software:

  • "for use with..."
  • "designed for use with..."
  • "runs on..."
  • "compatible with..."

However, you must take care to use them appropriately, as demonstrated in the following examples.

Correct examples:
< Your company name> <your product name> is designed for use with SAP® R/3®.
< Your company name> <your product name> is compatible with SAP® R/3®.

Do not use any grammatical construction that implies the SAP trademark or SAP offering name is part of your offering's name.

Unacceptable example:
< Your company name> <your product name> for SAP® ERP provides extended functionality.

The above example is unacceptable because the reader could interpret your product name to be "<Your product name> for SAP ERP." Change any such construction to clearly separate and distinguish your offering name from the SAP trademark.

Corrected example:
< Your company name> <your product name> provides extended functionality for users of SAP® ERP.

Compatibility References within Headlines, Signage, Packaging, Labels, and Other Materials

It is particularly important to avoid making your product name appear to include an SAP trademark or an SAP offering name when the reference is in a title or headline, trade show signage, product packaging, CD label, or any other material.

Within headlines, signage, and other materials, you may use phrases such as the following to refer to your offering's compatibility with SAP software:

  • "for..."
  • "for use with..."
  • "designed for use with..."
  • "runs on..."
  • "compatible with..."

However, you must always clearly visually differentiate your product name from the compatibility reference to an SAP offering.

Unacceptable examples:
< Your company name> <your product name> for SAP® Business Suite
< Your company name> <your product name> for Use with SAP® ERP

To correct this, use a type size for the SAP offering name that is noticeably smaller than the type size for your offering name. Or use a different font or a different style, such as italics, for the SAP name.

Corrected examples:
< Your company name> <your product name> for SAP® Business Suite
< Your company name> <your product name> for Use with SAP® ERP

The above examples are acceptable because your product name and the compatibility references "for SAP® Business Suite" and "for Use with SAP® ERP are visually set apart.

Another option would be to place your product name in the title and to show the compatibility reference as a subtitle in a different type size, font, or style.

Example:
< Your company name> <your product name> for SAP® Business Suite

Self-Test for Avoiding Unacceptable Practices

Consider the following questions to determine if a particular product or service name, compatibility reference, marketing communication, or packaging may pose a problem to SAP and its trademarks:

  • Does your product or service name include an SAP trademark or an SAP offering name or similar variations of these?
  • Do you use an SAP trademark or an SAP offering name in a way that gives the impression that the SAP trademark or SAP offering name is part of your product or service name?
  • Do you use just the term "for SAP" to refer to product compatibility?
  • Does your offering name, or the usage in question, lead anyone to believe your offering is developed, endorsed, or authorized by SAP?
  • Does your communication material show any logos of SAP (or variations of them) other than your permitted SAP Partner logo, your permitted SAP Certified Integration logo, or your permitted "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" endorsement logo?

If the answer to any of these questions is "Yes," then you should change your product or service name, the compatibility reference, your marketing communication, or packaging to reflect proper usage.

Using the Phrase "Powered by"

Only use the phrase "powered by" in the "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" context. Do not use "powered by" to describe compatibility with other SAP offerings.

Incorrect example:
< Your company name> <your product name> is powered by SAP® Business Suite.
