Using icons for a logo is never a good idea. By definition, icons are not unique and what you are looking for is something original that is not being used somewhere else. Icons are protected by license agreements that do nott allow you to apply copyright on them, as you would do for a logo
You can find license information for individual icons on each icon page(or popup).
The answer is no. iconsink cannot give you permission to use an icon for a certain purpose, since we do not own the rights to the icons. Instead you need to check the the license information for the specific icon.
The only one that can give you permission to use an icon for other purpose than the one specified in the license agreement is the author of the icon, for being the copyright owner

Here we collected a list of actions you can take if you wish to keep increasing your downloads on iconsink. In no particular order:
There is a direct correlation between the number of icons a designer has on the site and total sales. Quality is also very important but the ideal scenario is to have a lot of high quality, unique icons.
Line and Filled-line icons are very popular right now. Icon design trends can change rapidly (every time Google or Apple changes styles). It is important to keep up with the trends which translate into customer demand.
We have observed that icon sales are trending towards more complex icons that tell stories or depict actions. Whereas "noun" icons used to be popular, "verb" icons (showing actions) seem to be selling more.
Icon design seems to be self-influencing in that when a particular style or color scheme becomes popular, everyone copies it . Try branching out into some completely new styles to make your icons stand out. This is risky, of course, so start small and create an SEO set that is completely different to see how it goes.
Incorporate as many channels as possible in promoting your work from Dribbble to Pinterest, FB, Twitter, etc. The more people who know you sell icons, the more customers you will have. It takes a while but building your following up on social media, specifically with potential customers (designers, app developers, etc) will have a positive impact.
Keeping a good pace at uploading new icon sets will give you more visibility. You can be featured on our frontpage and also on your iconsink followers’ front pages.
The ideal number is between 4 and 7 tags per icon and it can make your icons rank better in the search results. But be careful in not spamming your icons with tags, as that will influence your sales negatively
Garish, overly contrasting, loud colors can hurt sales. When in doubt, use a color combination chart such as Google’s Material Design color chart or any of the tools listed on Internet.
