Our Commitment to Privacy
We will NEVER share your name, e-mail address or personal information with any third party, unless specifically authorized by you.
We NEVER sell or rent our mailing list.
Trademark Data. After trademark and patent application information is recorded with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the records and associated documents can be inspected by the public and are not confidential, except for documents that are sealed under secrecy orders. Records open to the public are searched by users for the purpose of determining ownership for other property rights with respect to trademarks. Since IPWatch synchronizes its data with the publicly available USPTO information, we recommend making any data changes with the USPTO directly. Our website is updated regularly to reflect the USPTO data. IPWatch can assist with Assignment, Agency, and incorporation services to help mask public record information at the USPTO. Please contact [email protected] for a price quote appropriate for your specific situation.
