The free space around the event and service logos is one h-height on all sides of the logo.

It is not permitted to integrate the graphics files in any media whose content violates legal provisions and/or public morality, i.e. in particular, violent or sexual content, as well as discriminatory, insulting or libellous statements with regard to race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.

The forwarding of downloaded graphics files to third parties is not permitted. Third parties are not deemed to include your own staff, freelance staff or service providers required for creation of the means of communication.
