I am redesigning my website to show my skills and experience, and I thought it would be a nice idea to have the logos of companies I have worked for and with (directly and indirectly). I'm wondering if I can use their logos without requiring their express consent.
I'm a software engineer who has done only permanent jobs (i.e. not contract) though did freelance as a journalist many years ago. I'd like to include the logos of the publications as well as these were big companies.
A couple of examples:
- Commissioned on a freelance basis for Publications P1,P2,P3 (name published)
- Employee of CompanySW who supply bespoke software solutions to BigCompanyAV, BigCompanyMS, BigCompanyJJ
- Employee of CompanyEE working directly with engineers at CarCompanyV, CarCompanyF, and indirectly by supplying software to dealerships of CarCompanyK
- Employee at CompanyC which supplies their flagship product to 100s of companies (this feels different to me than #2)
Can I also use products? For example at CompanySW we developed a component for FamousProductA. Can I put that on my site?
