License for Subscription Agreement


A. AiA is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to ignite students’ thinking and creativity by providing engaging visual arts programs through which they learn art history, appreciation, and skills. AiA has developed a unique visual art curriculum that introduces and reinforces concepts through nine program levels, from kindergarten through eighth grade, designed to be taught by teachers or trained parent volunteers.

B. Licensee has placed an order for AiA programs, online lessons, curriculum, and associated materials (collectively, “Materials”) by providing to AiA a signed quote or order document (“Order”) which specifies the particular Materials to be delivered to the Licensee, the fees to be paid to AiA, the term of use of the Materials, and the address where the Materials will be used.

AiA and Licensee agree as follows:

  1. License and Fee

1.1    License Grant
AiA grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license to use the Materials for the purpose of teaching art programs in the number of classrooms or facilities specified in the Order. You may use the Materials only at the institution for which the license was purchased.

1.2    Restrictions on Use
You may not (a) use the Materials outside of a classroom or similar setting; (b) use the Materials outside of the United States; (c) reproduce, modify, translate, adapt, create derivative works based upon, or repurpose the Materials, in whole or in part, without prior written consent; (d) remove, obscure, or alter any trademark, trade name, logo, or any copyright or trademark notice or other proprietary notice, legend, symbol, or label on the Materials; (e) sell, lease, transfer, or distribute the Materials (whether in whole or in part) to a third party; or (f) use the Materials for commercial purposes.

1.3    Fees and Other Charges
You will pay AiA the fees and other charges as specified on the Order. All fees and charges are due within 30 days after AiA delivers an invoice to you. All unpaid balances after 30 days will incur a 10% late payment charge.

 1.4    Ownership of Materials
AiA retains all owned copyrights and all other rights, title, and interest in the Materials and any other proprietary know-how or methodologies used to develop the Materials. You acknowledge that the Materials are proprietary to AiA, and that no Materials will be deemed a work for hire.

  1. Indemnification and Limitation of Liability

2.1       Indemnification
You will defend, indemnify, and hold AiA harmless and its directors, officers, employees, agents, and assigns (“AiA Parties”) against all claims, actions, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, resulting from the improper use of the Materials or breach of this Agreement. You will not have any obligation to indemnify AiA to the extent the liability is caused by an AiA Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

 2.2    Limitation of Liability
In no event will AiA be liable to you for any consequential, incidental, indirect, punitive, exemplary, or special damages arising out of or relating to your use of the Materials or to this Agreement, regardless of the basis of the claim and even if AiA has been appraised of the likelihood of such damages. In no event will the total aggregate liability of AiA to you or of any person arising out of or relating to this Agreement exceed the greater of $500 or the total amounts you paid AiA for use of the Materials.

2.3       Limited Warranty
The Materials are provided on an “as is” basis. You acknowledge that AiA has not made and is not making any representations, warranties, promises, or guarantees of any kind about the merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or title and non-infringement of the Materials.
