UHY logos may be used under these guidelines only by press agencies and journalists publishing articles specifically about UHY and its products and services. Any use of the artwork outside of these guidelines is strictly prohibited.
The logos may only be used in close proximity to, or in obvious connection with, a published article or broadcast news story about UHY or a specific UHY product or service.
The logos may not be copied, distributed or used apart from the article or broadcast commentary about the company or the applicable product or service. For example, you may not redistribute the logo in hard copy or electronic form or make it available online for others to copy.
The logos must be used as provided by UHY, with no changes, including, but not limited to, changes in the colour, proportion, or design, or removal of any words or artwork. The logos may not be animated, morphed, or otherwise distorted in perspective or appearance.
