Being a registered participant in SOS Radio Week entitles you to use the SOS Radio Week logo, including the RNLI fund-raising logo.
Being a member of the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society entitles you to use the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society logo, including the RNLI fund-raising logo.
However, being a participant in the SOS Radio Week fund-raising event, or being a member of the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society does not entitle you to use any other RNLI logo on any of your own items (be they leaflets, clothing, web sites, QSL cards etc.) unless you have the express permission of the RNLI.
The RNLI logo is a registered trademark and, being a charity that is very much in the public eye, it is all to easy for unscrupulous persons to get the logo and use it to obtain money fraudulently from unsuspecting people. In trying to regulate the use of their logo the RNLI have asked us to collate all applications for the use of the RNLI logos.
Therefore, you must contact us first with a sample of the promotional item you wish to place the RNLI logo on, in plenty of time before you intend to use the item, and we will send your request to the RNLI for authorisation.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
