Hello,

I link to exercism on my website and would like to use the new icon for that, but I'm unsure about its license and under what conditions I may use it.

The logo itself is in exercism/website, which is published under AGPL-3.0. This is primarily a license for software/source code, and its conditions seem unusual for an icon, hence I'm asking here.

Is it allowed to use the icon on one's website when linking to exercism, what conditions need to be met and how to properly give credit?

Hey! We need to put up a page that has the logo in with some guidance for this, and firm up our actual guidance in the process, including the licence. Thank you for the prompt.

Exercism grants you personally the (revokable) right to use the Exercism logo on your website as long as you link back to https://exercism.io from it. I recommend using the icons from here until we publish some more high-res ones.

We'll firm this up into a licence that other people can use too in the coming weeks :)
