This Agreement when signed by both Licensee and Florists Transworld Delivery Inc ('FTD") confirms FTD's grant to Licensee of the right to obtain and use the Images in accordance with the following terms and conditions:
1. The Images are subject to a license only for Licensee's use in the production of promotional materials for FTD products. All wire orders generated by use of the Images must be cleared through FTD.
2. All printed copies, reproductions, and uses of the Images must feature the FTD mark, copyright notice, product number, and any other text assigned to each Image as provided by FTD, if that image has a registered mark or copyright. If the images are marked with R or tm symbol they are registered or copyrighted marks.
Except that Sender may for tracking purposes just list images on its website or other marketing that ties in directly to the registered FTD image and product number with the registered FTD mark and materials with its own specific product numbers identified with Senders internal tracking system will provide tracking of the sending of all orders of FTD products shown by such images that verify that all such orders were sent through FTD for clearing, to FTD reasonable satisfaction.
Sender agrees that FTD may on reasonable advance notice inspect and audit such records to verify that such orders of FTD products based on registered FTD images were sent through FTD for clearing. In the event that such audit shows that more than 3% of such orders were not properly sent through FTD for clearing then Sender shall pay FTD immediately upon demand, the entire cost of the loss of clearinghouse fees on such orders.
3. The Images may not be modified, altered, adapted, or changed, in whole or in part, to create derivative Images of any kind, other than to add the information specified in the Ad Slicks (e.g., shop name, address, phone number, etc.).
4. The Images shall not be used in association with any trade name or mark other than the florist store's Member name and the Member's city and state address must be prominently displayed in each advertisement featuring any Image.
5. The Images shall not be used in proximity to images of non-FTD products or non-FTD marks and names so as to cause confusion as to which products are those of FTD.
6. The Images may only be used on the website, if any identified below. A separate license
is required for each website, if any. Notwithstanding the foregoing, permission is hereby
granted to Licensee to use such images on other affiliated sites that are hosted by

FTD images. It is understood and agreed that Sender does not have ownership in or
otherwise have control of the links on the internet that may collect and forward orders
for flowers to Sender, and will cooperate with FTD if such links infringe any of FTD's marks or copyrights, to the extent permitted by law.

may otherwise be authorized in writing by FTD designating an FTD authorized source.
