Please read the Debian trademark policy:

"When You Can NEVER Use the Debian Trademarks Without Asking Permission [...] 2. You cannot use Debian trademarks in a company or organization name or as the name of a product or service."

See the "Permission To Use" section for instructions on how to submit an email request for how to use the Debian trademark:

"[...] email to trademark@debian.org with subject "Trademark Use Request"; be sure to include the following information in the body of your message:
    Name of the User
    Name of the organization/project
    Purpose of Use (commercial/non-commercial)
    Nature of Use"

Note that I am not a representative of Debian, just a Debian user. To obtain permission, you must follow the steps in the trademark policy.
