("ACA") hereby grants to the party whose full name and address are set forth below ("Licensee") the nonexclusive, non-assignable right to use ACA's CAMP GIVES KIDS A WORLD OF GOOD® logo (shown at the top of this page, and hereinafter referred to as the "Logo") in connection with Licensee's service of providing camp programs to the general public. This license is conditioned upon Licensee's continuous compliance with the following terms and conditions:
Licensee shall not transfer or assign this license, or sublicense any of its rights to use the Logo, except with the prior written consent of ACA
Licensee shall use the Logo in the form shown at the top of this page, including notice of ACA's rights in the Logo (such as "7", "8", "J" and/or "K") as directed from time to time by ACA, and may not alter or change that Logo in any way. Licensee may display the Logo in any single color or in a multiple color scheme. However, if the Logo is used in more than one color, a lighter color shall be used for the dots on the right and left borders of the Logo as well as for the sun and rays making up the letter "o" in the word "world" in the Logo.
Licensee shall display its name and/or its own logo on all products displaying the Logo.
Licensee may sell products listed on Exhibit A bearing the Logo ONLY at the location where Licensee provides camp programs to the general public, and at camp fairs, recruitment events and other off-site events directly related to Licensee's camp services, but not at any other location or event. Licensee shall not sell or distribute products bearing the Logo by mail order or any other service whereby such products are shipped or delivered off Licensee's premises, except for sales and shipments to customers of Licensee's camp services.
All of the products listed on Exhibit A that are produced by Licensee bearing the Logo and all of the services provided by Licensee that are identified by the Logo shall be of the highest quality and in harmony with the goals and images promoted by ACA. ACA shall have the right to review and approve all products, services, advertisements and promotional materials and items identified by the Logo, without prior notice to Licensee, in order to verify compliance with such standards.
Licensee has read and understood, and shall comply with, the additional terms and conditions listed on the reverse side of this page and incorporated into this Agreement.
This Agreement shall remain in effect until either: (i) terminated because Licensee is no longer an ACA-affiliated camp, effective immediately without notice from ACA, (ii) terminated by Licensee or ACA sixty (60) days after written notice to the other party, or (iii) terminated by ACA following Licensee's breach of this Agreement and failure to cure such breach to ACA's satisfaction within thirty (30) days following receipt of written notice of breach from ACA. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Licensee will immediately discontinue all use of the Logo in any manner (whether in word format or design/logo format), including all use of any mark which is a colorable imitation thereof or is confusingly similar thereto.
Licensee acknowledges ACA's ownership of the Logo (in any design or logo, and including the words alone without any design or logo), and shall do nothing inconsistent with or challenging such ownership. All use of the Logo by Licensee shall inure to the benefit of ACA.

ACA shall have the sole right and discretion to institute actions for infringement and/or unfair competition against such parties, and to take any other actions necessary to terminate such unauthorized use(s). Licensee hereby authorizes ACA to add Licensee as a party plaintiff to any action which Licensee brought to ACA's attention, if deemed necessary or desirable by ACA's counsel. Prosecution of such actions will be at ACA's sole expense, and all recoveries in such actions will belong solely to ACA.

(b) Each Indemnified Party shall notify Licensee in detail of each claim for which indemnity may be sought hereunder, promptly after such claim has been brought or asserted against Indemnified Party. Such Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its option, to participate in the compromise or defense of such matter, at its own expense and by its own counsel; provided, however, that under no circumstances shall such Indemnified Party compromise anysuch matter without the prior written consent of Licensee (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld).

ACA shall be entitled to select and use counsel of its choice in defending any Covered Claim, and shall have sole control of the defense of any Covered Claim and of all related settlement negotiations. This Section 11(c) shall not apply to any claim that is based upon any use of the Logo by Licensee other than in compliance with this Agreement.
