And this is a problem why? (Note that ntpd runs in the background, so
there is nowhere for the logo to show). The name of the University of
Delaware, a company, also remains in files on the system. 
And you could always do a search of the installed files for the name Meinberg, 

It thus sounds of my three options, the best for you would be not to run
