Terms of use

SalsUp’s brand policies are designed to manage and protect the value of the brand. By using any resources of the SalsUp trademark you expressly agree to be bound by these guidelines.

Finally, if the above requirement does not need to be met or you are not sure about the usage, you can request a separate logo usage license directly from SalsUp. Such a license must be initiated and approved by the managing director of SalsUp GmbH or the CMO with whom you work. If you do not have the contact details of the managing director or the CMO, please contact us at post@salsup.de to start the process.
