To license the installation of the CD ROM onto network servers and/or two or more computers, please purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence.
 

Annual Digital Site Licences

With so many songbooks and audio files purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Out of the Ark’s Annual Digital Site Licences are the perfect solution!


Cost-effective and flexible, our digital licences give you peace of mind so that you know you are covered for all kinds of digital usage for 12 months, including permission to:

  • Install Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.

  • Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  • Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Digital Site Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways and will need to be renewed each year. However, if you have a current Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, then ALL product titles that you have purchased are covered for digital permissions for one year without the need for individual licences.


You will receive a renewal notice by email 28 days before the end of any 12 month licence period.

This licence covers the same usages as the single product licences, but gives you blanket digital permissions for ALL Out of the Ark products that you buy. However, it does not include the right to perform any of our nativities or musicals to an audience (other than pupils or staff) - a separate Annual Performance Licence is still required for each of those titles.

Fantastic!

By DD

I used this for a KS2 Christmas Carol service. It was fantastic. The songs were easy to learn, and the backing tracks were brilliant. The children loved The Little Drummer boy. nWe had rave reviews from parents about how fantastic the songs were. I will definitely use this again!


Beautifully arranged

By Jackarias

I have never seen a collection of such beautiful Christmas carol arrangements all in one wonderfully-sized place. A very inspiring publication when trying to orchestrate your own version of carols! The backing tracks are just superb and really create a sense of Christmas throughout. Congratulations yet again, and thank you.
