We have done this to protect our trademarks for our community and for the benefit of everyone involved with Udemy. Our trademark rights are not limited to the non-exhaustive list above. Udemy monitors the use of our trademarks and reserves the right to request any third parties that use the Udemy TMs modify, alter, or discontinue any use that violates these Trademark Guidelines.
In general, you may do the following with the Udemy TMs and the names of Udemy’s products or services:

Udemy Logos - Please Request Permission
Our logos are some of our most recognizable expressions of the Udemy brand. As such, we ask that you help us protect this important asset by requesting permission before using it.
Instructor Kit: However, we do understand that our instructors want to be able to share their courses and accomplishments with the world. That’s why we have created the Instructor Social Kit, which is a brand kit instructors can use to share their achievements. All uses of the Instructor Social Kit must abide by the guidelines contained within the kit. Happy teaching!
If you have any questions, please contact the Udemy Legal Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
