Note that if you are a licensee of a Micron Trademark, the license agreement that you signed with Micron may contain specific usage guidelines that differ from those contained within these Guidelines, and in such case you should follow those specific guidelines provided within such license agreement. If you are a licensee, but have been provided no special guidelines, then follow these Guidelines.

List of Micron Trademarks
The list of Micron Trademarks provided here may be updated with new Trademark information and should be referred to regularly.

Referring to Micron Products/Services
When referring to Micron products or services use the proper applicable Trademark, and ensure that such references: (i) are truthful, fair, and not misleading; and (ii) comply with these Guidelines. Note that these Guidelines may be modified by Micron from time-to-time in its sole discretion. Specifically, ensure that you:

1. follow the directives within these Guidelines;
2. use the appropriate trademark symbol and trademark acknowledgment of Micron's ownership of the particular Trademark;
3. do not incorporate Micron Trademarks into your own product trademarks, service marks, logos, or company names; and
4. do not adopt marks or logos that are confusingly similar to any Micron Trademarks.Use of Micron Trademarks
When using a Micron Trademark, ensure that you:

1. ALWAYS use such Trademark as an adjective, accompanied by an appropriate noun (e.g. "Micron® NAND Flash memory is an excellent product"). Do NOT use a Trademark as a noun (e.g. "Micron® is an excellent product"). Do NOT pluralize a Trademark or make it possessive. Do NOT combine a Trademark with other words, symbols, or numbers, either as one word or with a hyphen. Do NOT abbreviate a Trademark;
2. ALWAYS use the proper spelling and the proper trademark symbol (®, ™ or SM as applicable). For the trademark symbol, use the superscript format, but if this is not possible, then use parentheses ((R), (TM) or (SM) as applicable); and
3. ALWAYS use Micron Trademarks in the way they were intended to be used. Do not use Micron Trademarks for products or services for which they were not originally intended. Do not alter a Micron Trademark in any way.

Identification of Micron Trademarks
In letters, memos, press releases, white papers, advertising, slides, foils, video, and other multimedia presentations, ensure that you:

1. properly identify (with ®, ™ or SM as applicable) each Micron Trademark at the most prominent use (often in the headline) and again in the first occurrence. For presentation graphics, each Micron Trademark should be designated with the proper trademark symbol on each page, slide, and foil;
2. in newsletters, magazines, and publications containing multiple articles, properly identify each Micron Trademark in the first occurrence in the Table of Contents, in headlines and in the first occurrence in every article in which it is used;
3. in brochures, financial reports, books, white papers, data sheets, technical documentation, and other bound documents, properly identify each Micron Trademark in the first occurrence in the Table of Contents, in headlines, and in the first occurrence in text;
4. in all charts and graphs, properly identify each Micron Trademark, as such charts and graphs could become separated, copied and used independently; and
5. in all Micron Trademark tag lines (e.g. "Our Technology, Your Vision.™"), always use the proper trademark symbol in every such reference.

Proper Use Examples of Micron Trademarks

Micron® memory device
Crucial® memory module
SpecTek® memory component
Crucial® Ballistix® memory module

Acknowledgement of Micron Trademarks
Ensure that you include a proper trademark ownership notice that identifies each Micron Trademark used as being owned by Micron Technology, Inc. (e.g. "Micron and the Micron orbit logo are trademarks of Micron Technology, Inc." "Aptina and the Aptina logos are trademarks of Aptina Imaging Corporation.") If you are a licensee of a Micron Trademark, the license agreement that you signed with Micron may contain specific notice, acknowledgment and other requirements and restrictions. Refer to your license agreement for such specific requirements and restrictions.

Use of "Micron" as a Trademark vs. Trade name
"Micron" is not only a trademark used to identify Micron's products and services, it also serves as Micron's company name. Therefore, the word "Micron" is generally used in two (2) different ways: (i) as a trade name to identify Micron Technology, Inc. the company; or (ii) as a trademark to identify its various products. "Micron" is used as a trade name when Micron Technology, Inc. the company is taking some action or referenced as having some attribute (e.g. "Micron announced its earnings for this quarter"). When referenced as a trade name, there is no need to include a trademark symbol after "Micron". "Micron" is used as a trademark when Micron is an adjective used as a brand name for its products (e.g. "Micron® NAND Flash devices are aimed at mobile and consumer applications"). When referenced as a trademark, include the proper trademark symbol after "Micron".

4. you may not use the logos below to imply in any way that Micron has sponsored or endorsed your website or any of the products or services referenced on your website without receiving Micron's express prior authorization in writing;
5. you may not alter the logos in any way, including proportions or colors and may not animate or morph the logos to change their appearance;
6. you may not use the logos on any website that disparages Micron or its products or services in any way;
