Better supports the two latest versions of the following web browsers: Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Due to the rapidly evolving nature of web technology, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or functionality of any advice or information offered on Better unless viewed in a supported browser.
We work hard to make sure our goods and services are easily recognizable. We do this by associating our goods and services with our trademarks and trade dress (“Mark” or collectively “Marks”). This is why our Marks cannot be used in any manner that is deceptive or disparaging, or in connection with any product or service that is not ours. Without our prior written consent, using a Mark constitutes trademark infringement and unfair competition in violation of federal and state laws.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of our Marks. The absence of a product or service name or logo from this list does not constitute a waiver of trademark or other intellectual property rights.
