Impact Username Policy

Last updated:
January 17, 2022

All SKOOT Impact Forests are automatically created with our unique random 3 name generator. Should you wish to amend the name the names are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and are intended for immediate and active use.

What if the username I want is already taken?

If the username you want has already been claimed, consider other names or unique variations. Using a number, hyphen, or an alternative spelling might help you identify a desirable username still available.

Trademark Policy

If you believe someone's account is violating your trademark rights, you can  report possible trademark policy violations to [email protected], subject line “User Name Trademark Violation”

Please submit trademark-related requests using your company email address and include all the information requested below to help expedite our response. Also be sure to clearly describe to us why the account may cause confusion with your mark or how the account may dilute or tarnish your mark.
