Contracted partnered institutions
We may use the logo or other identifying information about a university we do not have a partnership with. This should only ever be in the context of providing information about the university for the purpose of illustration and comparison and we should not imply partnership where there is none.
Furthermore, the logo or identifying information should not be altered and should only be used in a way that makes it clear the university is a separate entity to Studee and that the student (or another visitor) is on the Studee website or looking at material created and provided by Studee.
Education Agents partners can only use approved marketing materials provided by Studee and must not create their own marketing materials nor imply they have a direct relationship with or are endorsed by any universities.
Information and intellectual property (including pictures, logos, brands and trademarks) from contracted or partnered institutions are not included in any marketing material, without the owner’s express written permission.
