Organisation mark ”Key Flag” [Reg. nos. 68193 and 109654]
Organisation mark ”Design from Finland” [Reg. no. 260428]
Organisation mark ”Social Enterprise” [Reg. no. 254995]
The Key Flag mark, the Design from Finland mark and the Social Enterprise mark shall later be referred to as ”Mark” and collectively as ”Marks”.
The use of the Marks requires that the organisation is a member of the Association and has authorisation from the Association to use the Mark. The right to use the Marks is usually awarded for three years, however, the Mark committees may also award the right for a shorter period. The rules and conditions of the individual Marks shall be followed when awarding the usage rights.
3. Use of the Marks
If the usage rights, in accordance with the rules of the Mark, have only been awarded to certain products or services, the Mark shall only be used in the marketing of said products or services. If the same product name or label is used for products or services of which only some fulfil the conditions of the Mark, the Mark shall only be used on the products which fulfil said conditions.
The organisation which has been awarded the usage right to the Key Flag mark or the Design from Finland mark may also use the Mark in its corporate image communications, such as image or brand advertising, when over 75 percent of the company’s turnover is generated by the products or services for which the Marks were awarded and when the organisation has notified the Association of this in its annual notification. When used in corporate image communications, the Marks shall clearly refer to the name or brand of the organisation. The corporate image communication shall however never be misleading.
4. The Correctness and Timeliness of Information
The information about the member organisation’s turnover, which affects the Association membership fee and the usage rights of the Marks, shall be based on the information given in the organisation’s financial report and in their bookkeeping. The Association shall have the right to require that the member organisation provide a statement by an accountant or subcontractor or other external party on the organisation’s turnover information and other factors affecting the awarding of the usage rights. The member organisation shall be responsible for providing up-to-date and correct information for the application process.
All information related to the usage right application shall be treated in confidence and kept secret. The member organisation of the Association shall be responsible for ensuring that the usernames and passwords provided for the Association’s web service are only in the use of authorised persons.
Once the usage right of the Mark ends, the member organisation’s right to use the Mark in marketing shall end immediately. The Mark shall also not be used on any products manufactured after the usage right ends or any of their packaging. In general, the Mark may be used on the products and their packaging which have been manufactured before the usage right ended for a maximum of six (6) months, after which the Mark shall be removed from any products and their packaging which remain in the possession of the member association after the usage right has ended.
