If you think one of your employees has already created an account with your business trademark, first try to recover it or search within your company for the account information.
If you can't remember the email used to create the account, you can request access to the trademarked username on the account. Fill out our trademark complaint form
and we'll get back to you.
If your request is valid, you won't get access to the account itself—you'll just get the username to use on a new account.
Once we’ve accepted your request, our team will reach out to the account owner to let them know. If the owner doesn’t write back to us, we’ll free up the username. However, if the owner wants to keep the username, we’ll review their appeal to evaluate whether or not they have a legitimate claim to it.
We respect the trademark rights of others. Accounts with usernames, board names or any other content that misleads others or violates another’s trademark may be updated, transferred or permanently suspended.
If you don't own a trademark for the username that you'd like to use, you should pick a different one. When you add Pins on Pinterest, other people see your business' name, not your username. Your account's username simply determines your profile's address (i.e., pinterest.com/example_username).
