It has recently been brought to our attention that a number of businesses in the Far East have started trading under the brand name Polished Bliss. From a commercial standpoint this is of relatively little concern to us, as our brand name is protected in the geographical territory we serve (the United Kingdom and the wider European Union) and we have no plans to expand the scope of our operations beyond this region. However, what does concern us is that at least two of these businesses are also using our logos, and thus attempting to pass themselves off as us. Given the surprisingly high level of awareness of our brand name in detailing circles around the world, our fear is that this may lead to unsuspecting detailing enthusiasts in the Far East buying goods and services from these companies under false pretences. Therefore, the purpose of this post is to outline the facts in terms of who we are and where we operate. Hopefully this will serve as a point of reference on the internet and help to prevent potential customers outwith the territory we serve from being deliberately misled…
For the avoidance of doubt, the following applies with regards to the above logos (whether they are displayed in whole or in part): (i) they were designed by Dan Mack at Green Jersey in June 2009; (ii) they have been used publicly (both online and offline) since November 2009 to represent Polished Bliss Ltd, a private limited company registered in Scotland (company registration number SC355702); (iii) they remain the intellectual property of Polished Bliss Ltd, and have not been sold to, or licenced for use by, any other individual or organisation anywhere else in the world. With regards to the internet, if you see these logos being used anywhere other than www.polishedbliss.co.uk or, in the case of business directories, news articles or social media pages, without a backlink to www.polishedbliss.co.uk, then assume that they do not represent Polished Bliss Ltd.
Moving on, the following applies with regards to the operations of Polished Bliss Ltd: (i) Polished Bliss Ltd currently operates out of two industrial units at a single location in the United Kingdom (Craigearn Business Park, Morrison Way, Kintore, AB51 0TH); (ii) the principal market served by Polished Bliss Ltd with regards to the supply of goods and services is the United Kingdom, hence the use of the www.polishedbliss.co.uk domain name for all trading activities; (iii) as of May 2015 Polished Bliss Ltd also supplies goods to individuals and organisations in the Channel Islands, Belgium, France (excluding les DOM-TOM), Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Denmark (excluding the Faroe Islands and Greenland), Sweden, Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain (excluding the Canary Islands). With regards to the supply of goods and services, if you come across any individual or organisation trading under the Polished Bliss brand name outside of this territorial area, then assume that they do not represent Polished Bliss Ltd.
