have you seen this page?
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Legal_FAQ

generally, if there is enough space for your logo, there should also be for osm (on pages showing maps). If there's space for just one attribution, why not use it to attribute osm? The user will more likely be aware who you are (as he's using your app) than he will be that your map data comes from osm, so prioritizing OSM attribution seems to make sense 


cheers,
Martin
