  • Logo

The DPD logo is part of DPD’s intellectual property. The DPD logo is protected by Benelux trademark law and by the Wipo (World Intellectual Property Organization). This means that the Customer cannot use the DPD logo in an altered form, partially or as a whole in external communication (such as folders, brochures or leaflets). The Customer cannot place it on their own website, make it public in any other form, or duplicate it. Improper use or duplication of the DPD logo in any form is a violation of intellectual property and is therefore punishable.
