for printed and other informational materials, such as letterhead, posters,
newsletters, manuals, yearbooks, programs, and Web sites without prior approval,
as long as the SADD materials are not sold or a fee is not charged and the
messaging attached to the use is consistent with SADDs mission and
groups who wish to use the SADD trademark and unaltered SADD logo on promotional
items (T-Shirts, key chains, pens, etc.) must purchase these items through
SADD Nationals vendor. The SADD Store can be reached by calling 1-800-323-3676,

€ Neither state nor local SADD offices have the authority to authorize use
of the SADD brand name or any of the SADD logos. State coordinators and
local SADD chapters must request permission from SADD National to use SADD
