Very Important! The NNO Name (or any variation thereof) of NNO Marks may NOT be reproduced onto any products - including wearables such as shirts and caps-or on any other promotional goods.
If you have any doubt about whether your intended use of the Marks is prohibited, please contact the NATW office. Violators will be subject to legal action.
The Marks may be used on literature such as flyers, posters, announcements and newsletters in connection with the promotion of NNO.

Use of any "National Night Out" marks by any commercial, for-profit company, except for those officially approved and recognized by NATW, is strictly prohibited. If your organization enlists the assistance of a company to support your local NNO (e.g. funds, in-kind donations), that is permitted. However, that company may not have its participation/association with NNO publicly advertised, displayed or promoted, unless it is registered as an official NNO sponsor with NATW's national office, or unless NATW extends advance written approval.
Please make sure that all companies assisting you with National Night Out in your area are advised of the above and are provided with a copy of this "Trademark Fact Sheet". Companies interested in regional or national sponsorship information should be encouraged to contact the NATW office at 800-NITE-OUT.
