If you wish to use Bureau of the Fiscal Service trademarks, service marks or any logo associated therewith (“Fiscal Service Intellectual Property”) in connection with any of your organization’s goods or services, you must obtain prior written permission from the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (“Fiscal Service”). We will attempt to accommodate all reasonable requests that we receive from users; however, protection of our Fiscal Service Intellectual Property requires that we have to turn down any request that suggests Fiscal Service or the Treasury Department is endorsing a particular organization or product. Similarly, we will turn down all requests that attempt to use Fiscal Service Intellectual Property in an objectionable manner. The decision to grant permission to use Fiscal Service Intellectual Property shall be solely that of the Fiscal Service.

Fiscal Service Intellectual Property can be used only pursuant to our Terms and Conditions and these General Use Guidelines.
