WHEREAS, Licensor is the owner of the Assets (as defined below) and wishes to grant to Licensee a license, and Licensee wishes to obtain a license to, the Assets for the uses and purposes described herein, each subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

WHEREAS, Licensor acknowledges that in some instances, Licensee’s licence to the Assets, as described herein, will be purchased by a third party, on behalf of and for the benefit of the Licensee and that such third party purchasers shall be referred to as “Purchasers” in this Agreement. In such cases, the Purchasers, along with the Licensor and Licensee, are parties to this Agreement and agree to be bound by all of its terms.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants, terms, and conditions set forth herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

  1. License.
    1. Grant of Rights. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Licensor hereby grants to Licensee during the Term (as defined below) a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as provided in Section 10.6), non-sublicensable license solely to display, transmit, use, and distribute the Assets at and in connection with Licensee’s educational institution (the "Educational Institution”) for purposes of delivering an internal educational program (the "Program"), provided that in no case may the Assets be directly or indirectly (a) posted on or catalogued within any social media, website, library or other online or physical location that can be accessed by the general public or other persons within the Educational Institution who are not part of the Program, (b) disclosed, used or copied more than reasonably necessary to deliver such Program internally, or (c) used to create or improve a competing or derivative Program. 
    2. Description of the Assets. The "Assets" are defined as any and all materials provided by Licensor, and for greater certainty include such materials or components thereof presented in any and all media whether now or hereafter known or developed ‎or by any and all technologies ‎and means of delivery whether now or hereafter known or devised‎.
    3. Reservation of Rights. Licensor reserves all rights not expressly granted to Licensee under this Agreement. No use by Licensor of the Assets in any medium or manner will be deemed to interfere with the limited permissions made to Licensee by Licensor herein.   
  2. Usage of the Assets. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary contained in this Agreement:
    1. Copyright Notices. Licensee shall ensure that its use of the Assets is marked with the appropriate copyright notices specified by Licensor in a reasonably prominent position in the order and manner provided by Licensor. Licensee shall abide by the copyright laws and what are considered to be sound practices for copyright notice provisions in their jurisdiction. Licensee shall not use any copyright notices that conflict with, confuse, or negate the notices Licensor provides and requires hereunder.
    2. Modifications. Licensee shall not translate, recast, edit, alter, modify, or create any derivative works of the Assets without the prior written consent of Licensor, which will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. 
    3. Restrictions. Each license is valid for use at (i) 1 location or (ii) for up to 350 students per year. If the Licensee exceeds these restrictions the Licensee may purchase an additional license to use the Assets at (i) an additional location or (ii) for up to 250 more students by contacting the Licensor at [email protected] for a discounted rate. Written permission from Build a Biz Kids is required before the Licensee may operate outside of the stated restrictions.
    4. Staff & Contractor Access. All individuals accessing the Asset must be employed or contracted by the Licensee. If employees or contractors are using their own devices to access the Asset, the Licensee shall cause to be inactivated and erased all digital copies of the Assets in said employee or contractors’ control and possession and return to the Licensee or, destroy, any tangible copies of the Assets. 
  3. Payment. As consideration in full for the rights granted herein, the Licensee, or where a Purchaser has been listed on an order form, the Purchaser, shall pay Licensor a fee in the amount specified by Licensor in each completed order form, payable upon terms specified by Licensor. Such consideration is exclusive of applicable taxes, which will be collected and remitted by Licensor as required by applicable law.
    1. Alternative Licensing Options: Depending on the Licensee’s vision for your school or business, the following alternative options may be available to the Licensee by contacting [email protected] 

These alternative licensing options are subject to additional Terms & Conditions as agreed upon in writing by both the Licensee and the Licensor. 

  1. Refund Policy. If for any reason you feel like the License of the Asset isn't right for your organization let us know within 14 days of your purchase and we will issue a 100% refund. After 14 days of purchase of your first year’s license is non-refundable.
  1. Ownership and Protection
    1. Acknowledgment of Ownership. Except for the licenses expressly granted to Licensee in this Agreement, Licensee acknowledges that all right, title, and interest in and to the Assets will remain with Licensor and its licensors. If Licensee acquires any rights in the Assets by operation of law or otherwise, Licensee hereby irrevocably assigns such rights to Licensor without further action by either party. Licensee agrees not to dispute or challenge or assist any person or entity in disputing or challenging Licensor's rights in and to the Assets.
    2. Protection of the Assets
      1. Notification. Licensee shall, at its sole expense, maintain any copies of the Assets within Licensee's possession, custody or control under reasonably appropriate measures (but at least as good as those used to protect its own valuable or confidential materials) to protect and safeguard the Assets from non-permitted use or copying. Licensee shall immediately notify Licensor in writing with reasonable detail of any: (i) actual, suspected, or threatened infringement of the Assets; (ii) actual, suspected, or threatened claim that use of the Assets infringes the rights of any third party; or (iii) any other actual, suspected, or threatened claim to which the Assets may be subject.
      2. Actions. With respect to any of the matters listed in Section 4.2(a), and without affecting any indemnities hereunder: (i) Licensor has exclusive control over, and conduct of, all claims and proceedings; (ii) Licensee shall provide Licensor with all assistance that Licensor may reasonably require in the conduct of any claims or proceedings; and (iii) unless the infringement is caused by Licensee, Licensor shall bear the cost of any proceedings, but Licensor in any event will be entitled to retain all sums recovered in any action for its own account.
  2. Confidentiality. From time to time, Licensor may disclose or make available to Licensee information about its business affairs, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive or proprietary information, including the financial terms of the Agreement, business operations and strategies, marketing, creative elements, artwork, visual representations, research material and data, specifications, processes, and technological developments, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated, or otherwise identified as "confidential" (collectively, "Confidential Information"). Licensee agrees that the Assets are, except as to be properly delivered as part of the Program, Licensor’s Confidential Information. Confidential Information does not include information that, at the time of disclosure and as established by documentary evidence: (a) is or becomes generally available to and known by the public other than as a result of, directly or indirectly, any breach of this Section by Licensee; (b) is or becomes available to Licensee on a non-confidential basis from a third-party source, provided that such third party is not and was not prohibited from disclosing such Confidential Information; (c) was known by or in the possession of Licensee before being disclosed by or on behalf of Licensor; or (d) was or is independently developed by Licensee without reference to or use, in whole or in part, of any of Licensor's Confidential Information. Licensee shall: (i) protect and safeguard the confidentiality of Licensor's Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care as Licensee would protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than a commercially reasonable degree of care; (ii) not use Licensor's Confidential Information, or permit it to be accessed or used, for any purpose other than to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under this Agreement; and (iii) not disclose any such Confidential Information to any person or entity, except: (A) to Licensee's officers, employees, agents, consultants, and legal advisors who need to know the Confidential Information to assist Licensee, or act on its behalf, to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under the Agreement, or (B) pursuant to applicable federal, provincial, state, municipal, or local law or regulation, or a valid order issued by a court or governmental agency of competent jurisdiction, provided that Licensee shall first make commercially reasonable efforts to provide Licensor with: (1) prompt written notice of such requirement so that Licensor may seek, at its sole cost and expense, a protective order or other remedy; and (2) reasonable assistance, at Licensor's sole cost and expense, in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure.
  3. Representations and Warranties.
    1. Mutual Representations and Warranties. Each party represents and warrants to the other party that:
      1. it is formed and validly existing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation; 
      2. it has the full right, power, and authority to enter into this Agreement and to perform its obligations hereunder;
      3. the execution of this Agreement by its representative whose signature is set forth at the end hereof has been duly authorized by all necessary organizational actions of the party; and
      4. when executed and delivered by such party, this Agreement will constitute the legal, valid, and binding obligation of such party, enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms.
    2. Licensor's Representations and Warranties. Licensor represents and warrants, solely to and for the benefit of Licensee, that it owns or otherwise has the necessary rights to license the Assets in connection with Licensee's uses permitted hereunder.
    3. Licensee's Representations and Warranties. Licensee represents and warrants that:
      1. Licensee will not engage or participate in any activity or course of action that could diminish or tarnish the image or reputation of the Assets or Licensor, or cause confusion as to the ownership of the Assets; and
      2. Licensee's use of the Assets will not infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate Licensor’s intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party or violate any applicable regulation or law.
  4. Indemnification.
    1. Licensee Indemnification. Licensee shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Licensor, its affiliates, successors and assigns, and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, volunteers and personnel (each an "Indemnified Party") from and against any losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including reasonable legal fees and the cost of enforcing any right to indemnification hereunder and the cost of pursuing any insurance providers, arising out of or in connection with any third-party claim, suit, action, or proceeding (each a "Third-Party Claim") relating to Licensee’s use of the Assets, except to the extent of caused by Licensor’s breach of its express representations, warranties or covenants hereunder.
    2. Indemnification Procedure. The Indemnified Party shall notify Licensee upon becoming aware of a Third-Party Claim under this Section 7. Licensee shall promptly assume control of the defence and investigation of such Third-Party Claim, with counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party, and the Indemnified Party shall reasonably cooperate with Licensee in connection therewith, in each case, at Licensee's sole cost and expense. The Indemnified Party may participate in the defence of such Third-Party Claim, with counsel of its own choosing and at its own cost and expense. Licensee shall not settle any such Third-Party Claim on any terms or in any manner that adversely affects the rights of any Indemnified Party without such Indemnified Party's prior written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed). If Licensee fails or refuses to assume control of the defence of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party has the right, but no obligation, to defend against such Third-Party Claim, including settling such Third-Party Claim after giving notice to Licensee, in each case, in such manner and on such terms as the Indemnified Party may deem appropriate. Neither the Indemnified Party's failure to perform any obligation under this Section 7.2 nor any Indemnified Party's act or omission in the defence or settlement of any such Third-Party Claim will relieve Licensee of its obligations under this Section 7.2, except to the extent that Licensee can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result thereof.
  5. Term and Termination.

    2. Termination for Cause.

    3. Bankruptcy, Insolvency, or Financial Distress. Either party may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the other party if the other party: (a) becomes insolvent or admits its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due; (b) becomes subject, voluntarily or involuntarily, to any proceeding under any domestic or foreign bankruptcy or insolvency law, which is not fully stayed within seven business days or is not dismissed or vacated within 45 days after filing; (c) is dissolved or liquidated or takes any corporate action for such purpose; (d) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (e) has a receiver, trustee, custodian, or similar agent appointed by order of any court of competent jurisdiction to take charge of or sell any material portion of its property or business.
    4. Effect of Termination.
