Please contact [email protected] for queries about using Salix branding. We launched our new brand in April 2020, including a new Salix logo. Any suppliers or contractors that feature the old Salix logo on their website will need to update this to the new version. Please contact us at the email address above to request the new logo and for any advice on implementing our new brand.
Please note, we do not endorse any wording that implies that Salix is working 'in partnership with' or 'in association with' third parties or recommends the services of the associated organisation. Until we have had a conversation with the supplier and agreed branding permissions, suppliers should not automatically place Salix branding on their websites or other materials without prior consent.
Please note, the Salix name and logo are unregistered marks that are legally protected from unauthorised use. In the event of unauthorised use, we would seek to exercise our rights and protections against any infringing party, including pursuing injunctive relief and associated costs if necessary.
No, Salix does not support the use of advertising using the Salix name. Salix does not condone the use of the Salix name for Google ads or advertisements and asks that people get in contact if they see evidence of this.
If you wish to reference Salix in a press release or any other marketing material, including online advertising, we request that you contact our marketing department. Salix can offer guidelines in producing written content. To request a high quality version of the Salix logo please contact [email protected] for further details.
Salix does not ring fence any of its funding for use by specific consultants or suppliers. Funding is available for all public sector organisations and their supporting partners.
