Please be reminded that the State Brand brandmark for South Australia is a “Place Brand”. As a place brand, it is a visual identifier designed to convey the amalgamation of positive perceptions, thoughts and feelings that customers hold about South Australia. It is designed to trigger a consistent and growing “story” of positive perceptions, thoughts and feelings of South Australia as a Creative, Innovative and Industrious place, and a fantastic place to live in, work in, play in, migrate to, study in, visit, consume the products and services from, import from, engage with and do business in. As a Place Brand, the brandmark is a visual identity to show who we are, where we are and what we offer. It’s about being synonymous with South Australia. It’s about distinguishing ourselves from other States. It’s about representing us all. It is not a Certification Trademark, nor is it a “Place Of Origin” brandmark. Accordingly it is neither designed nor intended to be used as a Certification Trademark, nor is it designed or intended to be used as a Place Of Origin brandmark. It is not to be deployed as a “credence claim”. As the Registrant, you are responsible for ensuring your own compliance with the Competition and Consumer Act (2010) – Schedule 2 – The Australian Consumer Law. The Government of South Australia will not be held responsible for any breach of the Competition and Consumer Act by a Registrant. Registrants are advised to seek independent legal advice in order to ensure compliance.
Commencement, duration and termination of right
Your right to use the South Australia Brand will commence on you checking the “I agree” box and will continue until either: a certification trade mark for the South Australia Brand is registered by the Licensor; or the agreement is terminated. The Licensor will post a notification to this website if a certification trade mark for the South Australia Brand is registered. Upon such notification, your right to use the South Australia Brand under this agreement will cease effective immediately. It is your responsibility to monitor this website for any notifications. If this agreement terminates as a consequence of a certification trade mark for the South Australia Brand being registered by the Licensor: you may allow your existing product release bearing the South Australia Brand already in the marketplace at the time of termination, to run out, or, if your use of the South Australia Brand does not involve product that can run out, you will have a reasonable opportunity to remove the South Australia Brand from use. You may not continue to release products bearing the South Australia Brand or otherwise continue using the South Australia Brand subsequent to termination without first becoming an approved user of the certification trademark. The Licensor may terminate your right to use the South Australia Brand immediately by written notice to you if: you have committed a breach of these terms and conditions; the Licensor considers in its sole discretion that your use of the South Australia Brand is derogatory or harmful to the Licensor or otherwise impacts negatively upon the Licensor, the State of South Australia itself or the South Australia Brand; the Licensor determines that your use of the South Australia Brand infringes or potentially infringes third party rights; or you change your operations such that in the opinion of the Licensor, you no longer have sufficient nexus to South Australia.
