The License is limited to only the specific Trademarks and Content included in the materials made available by Orange as part of the Content package licensed by the Organization; separate subscriptions are required to access and use the various curriculum lines, media packages, and other Content offered by Orange (e.g. FIRST LOOK®, 252 KIDS™. XP3®, MARRIEDPEOPLE®, LEAD SMALL®, YOULEAD®, RETHINK LEADERSHIP®, etc.). The License also includes the right to use the ORANGE® trademark in accordance with the style guide (referenced in the Usage Guidelines) to identify that the Organization is using Orange curriculum as part of its ministry.

Any attempted sublicense or assignment without such approval is null and void and constitutes a material breach of this Agreement.
